Rated 1 out of 5 by good2bejess Refill cartridges do not fit other Venus razors
I've used Venus refillable razors for years, and when I saw this brand at my local grocery store, I decided to try it, only to find out that they do not fit the Venus razor I have. An ad on Facebook touts that all of the Venus refills fit all razors. That is not true. I hate returning items, so now I'll have to go buy a new razor that the refill blades will fit on. So disappointed.

Just bought this razor and have used it only once so far, but I loved it. It gave me a closer shave than my old Venus razor, and though the soap was slimy when I started using it, that didn't bother me. My legs felt smooth and soft afterwards.
I did nick myself once at my knee, but I was in a hurry so that's my fault. It didn't work so well on my underarms, though.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KimWofAV Many Cuts/Nicks
First time using this product. I have had many nicks and cuts. I loved the Venus Olay so I thought I would give the Pro Skin a shot. Not happy. Never a close shave, still have stubble and I nick myself every time I have used it (everyday). Especially not good around the bikini area. I am going back to Olay (I just wish it were more affordable). Do not recommend.

Very challenging to get a close shave because the soap portions are so thick in relation to the blades. And once the soap is wet it becomes very slimy. For the cost of 4 razors I was disappointed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommyof3boysandcounting still feel stubble
After shaving with the Venus Proskin razor, I can still feel stubble. If you are paying for what you get then I definitely got ripped off. It seems as though the moisture bars do not allow the razors to get the closest shave. I am not going to be recommending this product to anyone. I am definitely not buying it. I rather buy a disposable razor.

I bought this product for added moisture during the winter months. I have to say I have been very disappointed. I have had a hard time with nicks, etc. Will switch back to my other Venus blade as soon as possible. (the embrace - love it!)
Rated 3 out of 5 by susiez Misleading Packaging
I like this product ... I've used it before and and I have no real complaints with the product. However, I find the packaging very misleading. I'm on a tight budget and watch what I spend closely. I do compare when I shop. The outside of the package states there are three blades...not the case. Below to the right it restates (in lighter print) specifically what is included .... one razor (without a blade) and two cartridges - in my mind this equals two blades. I based my purchase decision on the "three blades" as I compared it to other brands. I was a little annoyed when I opened the package. I'm sure most people wouldn't take the time to right this up....but it just really irritated me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by AllieNJX24 Moisture bars ineffective on very sensitive skin
I have very sensitive skin with very coarse, dark hair so I'm very careful when I shave (e.g. I clean and disinfect blades between shaves, use a hydrocortisone cream right afterward, take care to exfoliate, etc.). I couldn't use this razor without having to resort to shaving cream. The blade was just average the first time I used it (some cuts, not a smooth shave) and the moisture bars degraded quickly.
I used it for the second time today and the blades felt very rough on my skin. I have very soft skin but the blade just kept nicking! I was left with many cuts and bits of skin would be taken off. Very hard to maneuver on my legs and did not provide anything close to a smooth shave. Worked better on my forearms and underarms.
One good thing is that the first time I used this, I did not have problems with ingrown hairs. Will have to see what happens this time, since my skin is significantly more irritated.
