Rated 1 out of 5 by Meggle Fell apart during first use
I've used other Venus razors with no problem. The Embrace Sensitive is a complete waste of time and money. During its first use, the parts of the razor blade literally started falling off. First to go was the "Ribbon of Moisture" that wraps around the entire perimeter of the cartridge, crumbling off approximately one minute into my shave. Shortly after, the thin aloe strip above the blade came off as well. The blades also didn't shave very well, as I had to swipe my underarm no less than 7 times, and some hairs were still missed. I didn't even try it on my leg after that. I'm very disappointed and will not buy this razor again.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tag123 works really well!
I always buy the venus embrace and I have never tried the 'sensitive' one, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It works great! I love it. The only downside right now is that when I hung it back up and used it again the next day there was rust on it! other than that, it works great!
Rated 1 out of 5 by MacaroniAndBuns Didn't Work - Stubble Galore
I decided to try a Venus razor for the first time and was highly disappointed. The razor simply refuse to shave my fine leg hair. I was confused. I tried again with and without shaving cream. No difference. It would not shave with one stroke. After going against the grain 3+ times on one leg I was worn out, and I still had the feeling of stubble immediately after "shaving". I figured it may be a fluke with the particular blade, but no. When I used the second cartridge the SAME THING happened! I ended up using the competitor's razor I had thrown in the trash prior to this, and even it gave me a better shave. Since I bought this product weeks ago and waited to use it, and I have no receipt or packaging (threw it away), I don't think I can get a refund/compensation. I will never buy a Venus razor again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by amanda87 Amazing!
One problem I have with shaving is that I can never get a close enough shave without being irritated. I've tried many different razors and hair removal products, but nothing worked. I just happened to get this one day and love it. I highly recommend it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MommaKat Best razor ever!
I received this razor from influenster to test out and I absolutely loved it! I've have extremely sensitive skin and have always dreaded shaving because of irritation and razor bumps but with razor I get a close shave and no irritation. I would recommend this razor to everyone and think it's week worth the money. I will be purchasing refills. soft and un irritated "I got this razor free to test and review, but all opinions are my own."
Rated 5 out of 5 by 30something Smooth, close shave
On top of having super sensitive skin, I also have thick, coarse hair. This razor was able to cut through everything while still being comfortable on my skin. Only drawback for me is that the stuff surrounding the blades didn't last long but that's probably because of my coarse hair. Now, I just need to find a product that helps ingrown hairs 2-3 days after shaving. "I got this razor free to test and review, but all opinions are my own."
Rated 5 out of 5 by brimilew Great product for those with sensitive skin
I've used other Gillette Venus razors in the past, but never the Embrace Sensitive. I was under the assumption that the various razor cartridges couldn't be THAT different. Once I used the Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive razor (sent to me courtesy of Influenster), however, my view changed. I can now shave my legs without fear of itchy bumps, skin irritation, and redness. The razor gives a close shave while protecting my sensitive skin. Great product!
