What is Venus Direct?

Venus Direct is a shave plan for women from Gillette Venus that gives you the ease of having fresh blades delivered to your door, with the freedom to update, change or cancel at any time. Start by selecting your blades and a handle that speaks to you. Then, choose how often you want your blade refills to be delivered. You can select from a monthly subscription, once every 2 months, or once every 3 months. BAM. That’s it! For an even easier experience, you can pick one of our curated Starter Kits.

Which blade is right for me?

Make sure to choose the high-quality blade that best suits your skin’s needs. Venus Direct offers six different blade types to choose from: Smooth Original, Smooth Sensitive, Comfortglide White Tea, Extra Smooth, Extra Smooth Sensitive, and Comfortglide plus Olay Coconut. While each offers its own unique benefits, all will give you a smooth shave.

How often should I change my blades?

Great question! Many try to stretch their blades as long as possible. But holding out even a few days beyond the refill point could mean the difference between smooth skin and bumpy, itchy skin. We recommend replacing your blades based on how often you shave:

  • If you shave...
  • Daily
  • Every other day
  • Twice a week
  • Consider changing
  • Every 1 to 2 weeks
  • Every 2 to 3 weeks
  • Every 4 to 6 weeks

Venus Direct takes out the guesswork and ships blade refills to you when you need them, based on your schedule. Talk about convenient!
