Today’s post is a review for the Venus & Olay Razor
This is one fancy razor. I took it out the packaging and it had a soft sweet aroma to it that reminded me of honey. There are two strips on the razor itself: one on top of the blades and one on the bottom. The goal of these is to create a completely fluid razor movement on your body, and it really works. As I used it there was a touch of lathering that occurred and a thin film of protection afterwards. When you use it, you’ll understand what I mean by that. Normally when I use razors that have a “built-in” something or other, I end up terribly dry and itchy afterwards. This product did not cause any type of reaction on my sensitive skin which is a breath of fresh air. The result was a very quick and smooth shave that left me feeling incredibly silky and wanting to roll around in silk sheets like in commercials. I found myself petting my legs throughout the evening after my first use. Another cool point about this product is that it comes with a shower holder with a powerful suction cup on it. The ones I’ve gotten before didn’t even hold until I turned the water on. This one is going strong days later! It is not overpriced considering it takes the place of a shave gel and after shower lotion, so it is really like three products in one for me. Score!!
