Consgel bars can be a little bit gooey after use

I had seen plenty of adverts for this razor and it seemed like a good idea, so being easily convinced I brought one the next time I was in tescos! The razor is made by Gillette and has two built in gel bars either side of the blades so that there is no need for you to use soap or shaving foam...

So, the 'Venus Breeze': 3 blades, soft-grip handle, the shaving 'compact' for storing your razor in the shower and of course, most importantly of all, the floral-scented gel bars to the top and bottom of the blades. Actually the scent is meant to be that of white tea, but it smells nothing like...

I used to own the Gillette Venus razor, just the 'plain jane' one, not one of the more fancy types they have now that vibrate or have 1 million blades a strip of something silky and soft. However when the Venus Breeze came out I was immediately interested in it. This razor was different. Instead...

The Razor The new Gillette Venus Breeze boasts built in shave gel bars, similar to another brand of razor that has been on the market for a few years. The razor comes in a pack with storage unit to store the razor and up to 2 refills inside, there is an attachment to fix this to the wall in the...

ConsGel bars don't last very long, expensive

I first received a Gillette Venus Breeze razor as a present some time ago, I have since gone back to using their original razors after not being very impressed by it, but then I bought another one of these from Asda as it was reduced from around £7 to only £2 some time back. The one I currently...

Consneeds a bit of care around the bikini area

As I am a beauty student, I absolutely hate the thought of having anything unbeautiful about my body. I cannot stand any hair on my body from the neck down but I despise waxing (its too painful!). Over the years my mum has brought me various razors and shaving products, but my favourite by far is...

Gillette Venus Breeze Ladies Razor I have to admit to being a wax virgin and even the thought of getting anything waxed makes my eyes water. Because of this fact I find myself needing to buy razors and the razor blades far too frequently for my liking considering how expensive they are. Recently...

“Smooth silky legs”

published 07/02/2011

ProQuick and easy to use, looks after skin

ConsThe shaving gel is a bit stringy

I usually use disposable razors but these were really beginning to ruin my skin and irritate my legs. Therefore when I was out shopping I decided to have a look at the range of razors in my local superdrug and see if I could find something which would be slightly kinder to the skin. My eyes were...

ConsResults don't last as long as I would like

Now before I start getting my review hat on, I would like to point out to all the men/boys this review will be of no interest to you, as really it's hypothetical! Us girls are just smooth in all the right places as it's just the way we are made! Same as we don't break wind -and if we did it would...

ConsOdd to use at first. Price.

When it comes to bathing, I'm a 5-minute shower gal. I've never been one for a long soak, unless a Harry Potter book has just come out then I'll be in until it drops below body temperature. I have a highly efficient routine that gets the job done and lets me get a little bit more sleep in the...

“Not so breezy”

published 04/09/2008

ProIt looked nice...!

ConsThe whole thing.

So before the Venus Breeze you had the all original Venus. Your bog standard razor that needed shaving foam and didn't really have any bells or whistles. Next came the Venus Divine, which to be honest just seemed to be an updated version of the original Venus. After that came the Venus Vibrance...

ConsPrice, hair grows back

Although I am generally a fan of epilating, sometimes I'm in the shower or the bath and I just don't have much time, so a quick shave is in order. There are also some areas that are just too painful to epilate - such as the underarm and bikini line areas. Also, now I'm living in university halls...

“You Can't Beat An Original”

published 03/09/2008

ProClose shave, good design

ConsDoesn't live up to expectations

Shaving has always been my preferred method of hair removal - I hate the smell of creams, don't like being hairy between waxing (don't get me started on the pain!) and shaving is just so easy and convenient. I first shaved my legs aged about 12, having pinched my step-dad's BIC razor and swiping...
