My sister introduced these razors to me over a year ago and I absolutely Love them. So easy for daily use in the shower. The gel does not get sticky and messy like others have said. They last a long time before you need to get a new razor.
I have used many different razors & none of them have cut me like this one has!! It works good until the gel padding melts away (which doesn't last long) then it is extremely sharp. Also, the plastic corners on each side of the blade cartridge is sharp & scratches. I will never buy this razor again! I will stick to my Gillette Venus Embrace razor.
I bought this razor because it said it was good for first time users. Although, I am not a first time user, I have tremors in my hands that make it very difficult to shave. I was cutting myself in several different places every time I shaved and was ready to switch to an electric razor when I decided to try these. I love them!! I haven't cut myself yet and the blade seems to last longer than Schick blades. They also give a nice close shave and I already purchased more.
I had been using my husband's gillette fusion razor for quite some time, but wanted to get my own razor, so I researched to find the lady's version of that. So, I was thinking, it's probably going to be just like the men's, only pink. I was wrong. It's a very lightweight razor compared to the men's razor. But it works well, very smooth results and I like that it comes with a little suction cup holder to hang it in the shower. The handle is made very interestingly and makes it easy to hold onto when you are trying to shave the backs of your legs. It's a nice razor. I'd recommend it.
I like this product, I have tried about every brand invented and this is my favorite due to it giving the closest shave that seems to keep my legs smooth for longer. I do not like the price though.\n\nWith any other product I have tried, within the next day I could feel stubble, with this product it take about 2 days to feel some stubble--which was unheard of for me!\n\nMy complaints is the product doesn't seem to stay 'sharp' for a long period of time, it seems like I can only get about 2 or 3 good shaves out of one razor. And the price is outrageous, to me!
I really like the Gillette Venus Spa Breeze disposable razors. I accidently ordered just these cartridges, but decided to go ahead and buy the razor for them since they are less expensive than the disposables.\n\nI liked the Intuition razor but found it difficult to hold on to when it was wet in the shower. These Venus razors pose no problem to keep hold of.\n\nThe razors that have the moisture strip give me fewer -- if any -- knick and cuts.
Shaving has always been problematic for me with sensitive skin and course hair. The design of this razor is terrific. The swivel head, smooth strips, and numerous blades all work together for a smooth, comfortable shave. Thank you, Gillette!
