Rated 5 out of 5 by SCUAmanda I love that you don't have to use shave gel/cream with this razor. The Olay moisture bars lather as you shave and leave your legs feeling smooth and moisturized. It makes shaving your legs quick and easy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saffron101 No Shaving Cream Needed
I love this razor. The five blades, and the moisture bars, give you a really close shave…without cutting yourself. When I first took it out of the package I wondered how it would work. The shape is a little weird, and the head is bigger than other razors. But it’s still very lightweight. And it’s nice not having the extra step of using shaving cream. It’s built right into the razor. The shower suction hook is a good idea but for some reason wouldn’t stay on my shower wall. But overall it’s a great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jnz415 This razor is great. I love that it doesn't require using a shaving gel but still manages to provide a close shave. The larger head was a little tricky to use at first, but it was fine once I got used to it. I was afraid I might nick myself trying to maneuver over certain areas like my knees but I had no problems at all. And the built-in moisturizers left my skin incredibly soft. Awesome product!
Rated 4 out of 5 by bato24 smooth -- no shaving cream or gel needed!
This is a great razor providing a super smooth shave and you don't need to use gel or shaving cream. I was concerned that it wouldn't be a close enough shave -- but it's great. No issues! Good product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikki03 Pleasantly Surprised
I wasn't expecting to like this product, but I do. I like that I don't have to use shaving cream or soap to shave. The lotions in the razor is very mositerizing. My only complaints and the reason for 4 stars vs. 5 is the lotion don't last that many shaves and the razor is so large it is not good for tight spaces, like the under arms. The great thing about these Venus products is the different razor heads for the Venus products fix all the variations of the handles, so I can change the razor and use this handle for those tighter spots I want to shave.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KBEM Great Shaver & Smells good
Easy to use, smells great, shaves great and no need for shaving cream. Perfect! Love it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by HiDef0715 If you like Venus, you'll like this razor
This is a good razor; I didn't need to use shaving cream, but it wasn't so moisturinzing that I could skip the lotion afterwards. If you like Venus, you will like this razor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by akaMrsJones Love this razor!
No shaving cream needed! I would highly recommend this razor. The head of the razor just lathers right up and you are good to go. It took a little getting used to because shape of the razor head but I got used to it really quickly. This would also be a great razor to take traveling - no shaving cream needed = 1 less thing to pack :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by jing0423 Loved this razor! I've always used both Gillette and Olay products so this made perfect sense. The razor glides on easily and didn't miss any hairs. The silky moisturizer left my legs feeling smooth as well. I would highly recommend this!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pia11 Close shave!
I have been using the Schick razor for ages and was eager to see how gillette would perform.
I was super happy with the result and did feel that my legs were def moisturized whilst shaving.
Only negative is that the cartridges seem a tad expensive and you committing to buying them once you buy this razor!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Deru Smooth shave and great scent.
Smooth shave. Worked well on my coarse hair without additional gels or creams. Wish the strips lasted a little longer, but the blade replacement pack is reasonably priced and I do really like the product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SuperAmma Good Shaving Razor!
I'm trying this Shaving Razor first time and I liked it. It's so easy to use. Shaving will be done very quickly by using this razor. As it has moisturizing content, we don't need any gel/lotion to apply. It has nice smell. Worth in buying it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by RaqStar72 Big Fan of Venus.. try all their new razors. This is great and easy to use without using a shaving gel or cream or conditioner for that matter.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Agood12 This razor works wonderfully.
This razor works wonderfully. The Olay moisture bars make it easy to shave, especially when traveling without shaving cream. The shower hook can be easily fixated to your shower, keeping your razor safe, clean and conveniently placed.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Helenn Not what i expected
I was excited when i heard venus & olay teamed up for a razor as i love olay products and the venus razor has to be my favorite razor. But i was quickly disappointed as the strips of the olay moisture were quickly gone and the blade got dull in no time:( not A product i will buy again will stick to my old razor.
Rated 1 out of 5 by elz13 never again.
Would not recommend this razor as it dont give a close shave and the bars on both side of the razor becomes slimmy and disgusting when wet. Very disappointed for the price i paid!
Rated 1 out of 5 by kariberri23 Good Razor, doesn't last.
I bought this razor and the first two or three uses worked phenomenally. But the moisture bars dissolved very quickly which frustrates me because I paid the extra money for it.
Rated 4 out of 5 good
Good Razor, I strongly recommend to my friends and family
Rated 3 out of 5 by trish78 doesn't last very long
I loved how my legs felt after shaving....the only thing is the olay strips fell off after a few days...i would have to change the blades way to much...and the blades are not excatly cheap lol..i will be going back to my old razor
Rated 2 out of 5 by Aburkett18 Blades dull way to fast!!!
Well, I love 5 blade razors and always use Venus. This razor does give a very close shave and is smooth. HOWEVER, and this the # 1 downfall, the blades dull in no time!!! I mean, the Olay moisture strip lasts longer than the blades do! These blades are very expensive, so you expect the sharpest, highest quality razor that lasts long enough to feel like you're getting your money's worth. In reality, they only last maybe one, two weeks tops, if your lucky.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nancy Great combination - Olay and Venus!
Five blades - softness and smoothness of Olay - what a great combination. Leaves me stubble-free for longer, my skin feels so soft and smooth. Best shave I have had! Only complaint is that the Olay part would last longer - that would make it perfect!
Rated 3 out of 5 by ishopatwalmart01 It is good but...
its a good product but nothing out of this world. I will still recommend to try it who knows, nothing works the same for everybody ;)
Rated 1 out of 5 Doesn't last for the amount of money it cost!
I have only used this razor two times and the moisture bars have already dissolved and falling off! The other razors in the line last 10 times longer than this one. It's not worth the money it cost to have something fall apart soo fast!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicolle A super close shave which leaves your legs feeling fab!
The head of this razor has two strips on it which moisturize your legs so there is no need for any shaving creams. Just wet your legs and you are good to go! The shave is really easy, as the razor just glides over your skin, without leaving cuts or anything nasty. The quality of the shave is next to none, and the best I have ever experienced. It is really close and leaves my legs shiny, smooth and flawless. I couldn't recommend it more.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Judy24 this product is great
I am glad I bought this product and I will recommend it to my friends. its an amazing feeling on my skin and it smells great.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Brenda007 The Good, The Bad, & The Hairy!!!
I am a total razor snob, and have never blinked a false lash at paying the price for a good smooth shave. Venus razors has always been my choice. BUT with Venus & Olay 5 blade, I want my money back!
Pros ~ Smells great, razor glides smooth & gives moisture to the skin
Cons ~ You will not get a close shave. Blades will go be dull on second shave. These razors have to hang or you loose the moisture stripe (they will become gummy)
I am going back Venus Embrace!
Rated 2 out of 5 by TelaTela Slimy and horrible shave.
Subject says it all... The concept of this product looks good on paper, however, it was very poorly executed. When I saw Olay and Venus teamed up, I had high expectations. I use Olay products on my face everyday.
I understand this razor is designed so that you don't have to use shave gel, but the "Olay moisture bars" feel like a sticky mess rather than a moisturizer. Because of these bulky Olay bars at the top and bottom of the razor, a smooth, close shave is a joke. There will be hair patches galore. 5 blades does more of a job of 2 or 3 blades if you're lucky. I also don't recommend getting the "sugarberry scent." It smelled like very artificial berries.
I am going to try again with another Venus cartridge. This one was just a disaster.
Rated 5 out of 5 by B1976 Gives close shave without any of the discomfort
I bought this as it was on offer and I am so glad I did as it is amazing. The smell of the Olay is lovely and doesn't have that horrible shaving gel smell. Legs were hair free and moisturised and lovely. Thank you Gilette and Olay
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tess53 Excellent
Love this product, I have had the purple colored handled Venus shaver for a long time. I saw the Ad for the yellow one with Olay and wanted a change. When I saw it in person it is more of a gold color than a yellow, I was looking for a bright burst of sunshine for the spring/summer... who knows maybe they will make a lemon colored one soon!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ridingkxm This is just awful. Don't buy it. Maybe if it had 3 more blades.
This thing is just awful. I have really had my fill of razors that have sixteen blades. Two is just fine. Maybe three. So now it's sixteen blades and a big huge lump of slimy stuff the size of my head. What does Gillette not get about women shaving lots of areas that aren't a big flat open space? I can't get sixteen blades and a lump of stuff in the weird shapes of my armpit and the back of my knee. Seriously! Why? Three blades, no gunk. Of course, there is the plus of the gunk disappearing and falling off in four or five uses. I just don't get it. What I wouldn't give for the good old days of little razors.
