Rated 5 out of 5 by Kapaca The best disposable
My teenage daughter and I both use the Venus Embrace. In our opinion, all of the Venus 5 blade razors, are great for women. Maybe men too. They glide smoothly over legs,, under arms, and other areas that need shaving. Mine last a very reasonable amount of time too. In the summer, shaving is mandatory every single day and these razors still perform. Even nearing the end of their time, shaving is still better than most cheaper ones. A little pricy for a disposable but I think, well worth the attention for my skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jb5032k6 The best shave ever!! :0)
I have always had trouble finding a good shaver. It seemed like I spent more time in the shower shaving than I did having a good time showing off my legs!!! But with this shaver I get that nice smooth clean feeling shave every time and Im not spending hours working at it!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Muffmarr Not a close shave
I just started using these and am disappointed. I cannot get a close shave. I have to shave several times on my underarms to remove all the hair (it really isn't that much hair; I am a senior citizen and it just doesn't grow like it used to!) I am going back to a regular razor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Olly Best razor for my *extremely* sensitive skin
I've been shaving for over 6 years and I have terribly sensitive skin. For better insight, I am a man and I shave most everything from the neck down and have gotten bumps with every single razor and shaving cream combo you can imagine. I picked up these disposables figuring the moisture ribbon would help with the friction, and what do you know, it does just that! It glides so well, sometimes I don't even have to use shaving cream or soap (then again, my hair is very thin and doesn't take a ton of effort to cut). It's difficult to get used to at first, as it's very light on your skin and you may accidentally press down too hard, but I definitely recommend this to anyone who is prone to razor bumps or just wants to indulge in a great quality razor. Not to mention it's definitely worth the higher-than-most price, as it's been almost a month(I use it everyday) and I'm still using the same blade with the same first-time results!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Patti76 Terrible design!
I have always loved The Gillette Venus razor with changeable cartridges. Recently, I came upon a coupon for the disposables. So, as expected, I purchased them. BAD MOVE! The design is terrible! The handle is longer and thinner making it difficult to grip. Also, the moisture ribbons are SO THICK that I cannot get a close shave on my shins. The moisture ribbons get slimy, too.
However, I am happy to report, I called Gillette about this razor and they offered me a refund or a coupon for a free pack of Venus cartridges. I took the coupon and can't wait to get back to the original razor :-)
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anna32 Too much outside gel
I love Venus razors and have used them for years - they work teh best for me. I have very course thick hair that grows back daily, so I have to shave every day. I tried this razor because it had 5 blades instead of 3 and I thought that would maybe get a closer shave. I was very disappointed because there is so much gel around the outside, that when it gets wet and swells, the blades barely touch your skin. Then if you push harder, the gel makes it too slick and you cut yourself. I even tried to scrape some of the gell off, hoping that would help, but the same thing every time I would try. I wouldn't purchase this product again. I really wish there was 5 blade razor with less gel.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MCulp71 Worst razor in Venus line
I have used Venus razors since they came out. I thought I would try this one. Wrong. I spent close to 10.00 for 2. I got to shave two times under my arms only and put my razor in the usual place. I went to use it again. It was rusted!!! Like a single blade no name razor. I tried the second same thing.
I am going back to the simply Venus. The first is the best.. Dont waste your money on this one.
