Review of "Gillette Venus Embrace Blades"
Mum to Alfie.....now 11 weeks old! Will be back reviewing really soon I hope!!! xxx
Having to shave my legs is one of those things that you kind of have to do but it is still a bit of a pain! With the warmer months and my legs being exposed, I have found myself having to shave them pretty much every day, I have hair that grows back as soon as I have shaved my legs, rather frustrating! In the winter when I am wearing trousers into the office I can get away with not having to shave quite so frequently but then if I am wearing tights there is no worse a feel than having hairy pins! I also use the product that I am going to be reviewing today, Gillette Venus Embrace Blades for shaving under my arms was well so the blades certainly get the use from me! Having used them for some time now, here are my thoughts on the product.
I used to use the Gillette Quattro blades, then purchased a new razor that fits the Venus Embrace blades. I do tend to shop around for the blades, the price really does vary. I tend to either get these from Superdrug or the Savers store. You will be looking at paying around the £10.00 to £12.00 mark for these, this gives you a pack of 4 refill blades. Whilst the initial payment doesnt come that cheap, they do last well so you get your payback.
The blades come well packaged and on the packaging is all the information that you need on the product, there is he gillette name as well as directions for fitting the razor blade onto the razor, which is really easy! It slips out of the plastic container and will clip onto the razor, you will were a click and then it just lifts out.
The idea behind this 5 blade technology is that you will feel smoother for longer, we are told by the brand that the lasting sleek design of the blade will get every last hair. Very impressive! The only thing left for me to do was give these blades a go. I do use a shaving cream and this helps I think, they really are smooth to use, since using the Venus blade I have not had any nasty cuts, you know the ones when they won't stop bleeding!
The shave is really vey close, running my hand across my leg after using, I can really feel how good the blades have worked, the same for under my arm, it removes even those awkward, stubborn hairs. I was really impressed. I have still tended to run the razor over my legs on a regular basis when grabbing a shower of a morning, to keep the smoothness there but it alllows you to be really quick!
I am more than happy to recommend this blade.
5 out of 5 from meThank you for reading
