Satisfactory

ProGreat blades, smooth shave

ConsLots of slimy mess from the moisture bars

-- Introduction: Why I brought this product --- I usually use disposable razors as I find the cost of replacing blades on razors is so expensive and generally not that good, it is cheaper to just buy some own brand disposable ones, which do a good enough job. However, the only problem with...

Prosoothing, lasts well, good for sensitive skin

ConsPrice, my legs still come up in a small rash

One of the big bug bears of my beauty regime is hair removal - I can't afford regular waxes (and can't get my head round at home waxing kits) and when I shave I break out into an itchy red rash. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for good razors and shaving gel that will minimise the damage...

“Venus and Olay”

published 28/11/2013

ProWorks well

ConsNone

I recently took this razor on holiday with me and it's one of the best manual razors I have used. Obviously on holiday you want really nice smooth legs that last for a long time when you are hanging around at the pool and wearing short summer dresses so this really was a great razor for my...

I recently tested this product and have been very pleased with it. The packaging is bright and inviting and very easy to get into. No scissors required, the packaging just pulls into 2 pieces. So from the start no aggravation trying to get the product out. Inside the package has one razor handle...

As most women out there, I am always on the look out for that perfect shave that is easy to complete and will leave me the skin similar to that of a Greek goddess. When this item came up to review recently, I snapped at the chance. The packaging oozes that sense of luxury with the vibrant golds...

“Best razor i have used”

published 31/07/2013

ProGives such a close smooth shave

ConsSoap bars break off after a few uses

I picked up this razor a while ago in Boots half price. I was looking for a new razor and I love Olay products, so I thought I would give this razor a go. I paid around £5.50 for the razor, which came with a shower holder, and one razor head. This is a brilliant price for this razor as it is an...

This product leaves my legs feeling soft and moisturised, with a nice fresh scent. I've used Venus products in the past and have always loved the close shave that they give - the addition of the Olay moisturiser is a great bonus! I did have an issue with some of the more awkward places to shave...

“Easy to use”

published 15/03/2013

ProLeaves skin silky smoot

ConsToo expensive and moisture bars melt too quickly.

Overall I am pleased with this razor as I get a good close shave and it does leave my skin feeling silky soft after use. There are a couple of downsides though and these are as follows...... The head is too large to comfortbly shave my bikini area. The moisture bars melt quite quickly especially...

“Great razor indeed”

published 01/03/2013

Promoisturises, durable, fast to use

Consa bit bulky when you first use it

So basically you get in the shower, wet the razor, SWOOSH SWOOSH SWOOSH and it's done. No shaving cream, no moisturiser. The Olay bars attached do a great job. The lather left on your skin from the bottom bar makes the razor slide so smoothly that you can't even feel it on you. And the top Olay...

ConsPerhaps the price

I was a little sceptical about this product but having just tried it, I think that it is a very effective razor. My skin was left exceptionally smooth as I shaved and the razor leaves a thin layer of moisturiser on your skin. The added bonus was not having to worry about using soap or shaving...

ProClose shave with 5 blades, Moisturising strip

ConsReplacement blades are slightly pricey

I must say I love the new Gillette Venus & Olay Razor. Not only does it have 5 blades for an extra close shave it also has an Olay moisturising strip for super soft skin afterwards. It's also great as you don't have to use any shaving foams or gels with it saving time and most importantly money...

“Close and Better Shave”

published 05/03/2013

ProClose and better shave , No skin irritation

ConsMoisture bars not lasting long

I had used this Razor few days back and I found it to be the coolest. The moisture bars acts like a shaving cream and hence the shave was quite smooth. Also the flexible head of the razor helped me in getting to areas on my body easily and quite closely.Most amazingly I did not have any skin...

I have been using this razor for a few weeks now and think that it is fantastic, my legs feel perfectly smooth, hair free and moisturised. The razor is a great time saver due to the moisturising bars, so messing around with any extra shaving gels and moisturising after shaving has become a thing...

published 26/02/2013

ProSmooth shave, good moisture

ConsWould like to see it a bit cheaper

I had been a regular Intuition user (many years), but this has really changed my mind. It produces a great close shave - it really follows the contours of the body well, particularly under arms, bikini line and ankles. It moisturises well, leaving my legs lovely and soft, and I liked the...
