Rated 1 out of 5 by Redhenny51 Package misleading; says 5 blades in large print on front. Only one blade.
The "5 blades" on the front of Gillette Venus snap with Embrace package is misleading. Who would turn it over and read in small print "5 curve-hugging blades" to shave you close. Maybe I misunderstood but it should be clearer that you only get 1 razor for the high price. I won't buy them again!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy Stick with the sensitive razors
I always buy sensitive razor blades and normally they are great but this time I bought Venus breeze and on every single razor blade the gel pad fell of within a few uses of the razor. Meaning I went through 4 razor blades in 2 weeks because as soon as the gel has gone it is awful to use.
Will be sticking to the sensitive razor blades in the future, just wished I hadn't tried breeze.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lmball0414 What happened to your great product?
What did you change in the razors???? I have been using Venus refills (both Embrace and original, back and forth for whats on sale) for YEARS. I have never had a problem and could get a week/almost 2 out of a razor even if shaving every day. Recently I barely get 3 shaves out of a blade! I am so disappointed in your product recently. PLEASE CHANGE BACK TO THE OLD RAZORS! I would even be happy to get a week out of them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by K2006 WORST RAZOR EVER
I have been using Venus razors for several years now. I went to pick up a refill and the store didn't have my usual selection in stock so I picked up these since I have sensitive skin. At first they gave a smooth, close shave. But after three days it stopped shaving. I thought it was a fluke so I grabbed another one. Today is day three and it is no longer shaving. I have to press hard on my knees and shins to get it to barely cut the hair. There must be a design flaw because the green pieces above and below the razor have expanded so much that the razor is now sitting too low. I will never purchase these again. Waste of money.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Karla06 WORST RAZOR EVER
I have purchased Venus razors for years. I needed a refill and the store was out of the original so I opted for this one since I have sensitive skin. I was impressed at first with the shave, but then the razor literally lasted three days before it stopped shaving. I thought it was just a bad one, pulled out another one and today is day three. It won't shave the hair on my shin or knee. I have to press hard to get it to cut the hair a bit. I have dark hair so shaving every day is a necessity and stubble is easily seen. Just want I want to show everyone in the summer. It looks like a design flaw to me, there is a green piece above and below the razor that apparently has expanded with the water which has raised high enough that the razor is now sitting below those two pieces. I will never purchase this product again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by EcaMom Misleading packaging
Package for replacement cartridges says, "Any Venus cartridge fits any Venus razor handle, except Simply Venus." I have a three-pack of Gillette Venus Sensitive disposable razor handles, and I see no way to remove the head, or replace it with a new cartridge. If they're meant to be replaced, instructions are needed. If they're not meant to be replaced, the statement on the cartridge packaging is flat-out wrong, and I've purchased and opened a now-useless set of cartridges.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mart1147 Excellent razor, needs handle improved
I shave my legs every day, and get one week out of the Venus Embrace. I love the razor with one, major complaint. Within the past few months, the handle has started breaking 1/2-3/4" from the blade end. I have used this razor for several years and only recently noticed this or started having it as an issue. At approximately $4 a razor, I would like to think it would be made with higher quality standards. I am ready to switch to a different razor, even though I like so many features about this one, to prevent the repeated breaking.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KJMD excellent razor; I will recommend it to my patients. thank you
no inflamed hair follicles after using this razor!
