Lately, I’ve been sharing some of my favorite razors and shaving tips with you. I love all the razors I’ve talked about, but my everyday razor (and favorite) is the Venus Embrace Razor from Gillette. It’s a razor with a very simple design, which makes it perfect for basic in-and-out of the shower shaving! I love the fancier razors with scents and special features when I’m spending time in the shower enjoying masks or treatments. Most days, though, I try to spend as little time in the shower as possible so I can get clean and get going!
The Venus Embrace Features:
~5 Blades for a dramatically smooth shave
~Ribbon of moisture for a smooth glide
~Interchangeable Blade Refill Cartridges
~Soft Grip handle for no-slip control
~ShowerPod for convenient in-shower storage
I like that the head of the razor is flexible, so it doesn’t matter what area I’m shaving- whether it’s under my arm or behind my knee, the Venus glides over my skin without any inflexibility that causes nicks. The moisture ribbon provides enough conditioning for underarms and quick touch-ups, when I don’t have the time for shaving gel. Plus, the handle fits comfortably in my hand and has a gel handle, so I know I have a steady grip that won’t result in razor slippage and uncomfortable cuts!
Buy It! You can purchase the Venus Embrace anywhere you normally buy Gillette products- Target, Wal-Mart, drugstores, grocery stores… Pretty much everywhere! You can also order online from Amazon or Drugstore.com! If you order from Drugstore.com, it only costs $12.99 for the razor, refills, and the shower pod!
