Rated 1 out of 5 by seb3916 Disappointing Razor
This razor was completely ineffective. I wanted to try a new product as my skin has become slightly more sensitive. However, I quickly realized this razor was not the solution I was looking for. After one use, "the protective ribbon of moisture" became a big glob of sticky residue. It was very difficult to get off the blades. The shave was not close at all even after going over my legs multiple time. I had horrible stubble only after a couple hours. For such a promoted brand, I expected great results but experienced quite the opposite.

I found this Venus shave very smooth - no more cut legs for me
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex80 Gentle and smooth on my skin; packaging exceptional.
I can't remember ever writing a fan letter to a manufacturer before, but that is what this is. Bought the Venus Embrace on a whim. When I got it home I got out the heavy-duty shears to open the clear, plastic package. Didn't need 'em. Just slipped my thumbs under the flap and pulled it apart - this with my arthritic fingers! Three more pluses - the easy-opening blade packages, the terrific shower hanger for the razor, and, of course, the easy-gliding razor itself. Creative, consumer-conscious design. Nice.
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!
