Gillette Venus Embrace

Gillette® Venus® Embrace® and Venus & Olay™ Razors

I was lucky to receive a Venus Embrace razor and a Venus and Olay blade refill complimentary from Influenster to try and review.

Have you tried Venus and do you know that the heads are interchangable with the handles?  I didn’t!

Choose how you get Venus Goddess Skin by trying any Venus blade refill on your existing Venus handle. Mix-and-match and find your perfect shaving match without having to purchase a whole new Venus razor.

Any Venus blade refill fits any Venus handle so you can find your perfect shaving match without having to purchase a whole new razor.

o  Venus Embrace blade refills provide an ultra-close shave with five blades that hug curves to get virtually every hair. Available in 4- and 8- count packages.

o  Venus & Olay blade refills feature Olay Moisture Bars that contain skin conditioners to help lock in moisture and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades provide an ultra-close shave. Available in 3-count packages.

I tried both blades on my razor.  My favorite is the Embrace blade because it gives a very close shave.  The Olay refill is so moisturizing, so if you love a lot of moisture when you shave, it is perfect!

    New Products from Gillette Satin Care to Keep Your Legs Smooth this Spring and Summer

    Need smooth legs now that the weather is warmer and your skirts and pants are shorter? I think that smooth legs start in the shower or bath with shaving. To make this task easier, try a couple of great products from Satin Care — The new and improved formulation of their shave gel plus their brand-new In Shower Moisturizer.

    I tried the Cooling Sensation Shave Gel ($1.99 – $3.49 USD). This refreshing gel has a light menthol and eucalyptus scent and does cool skin on contact. It goes on as a gel and foams up when you smooth it on. This gives a rich cream that is perfect for shaving — and skin is satiny-smooth afterwards.   

    The Satin Care Shave Gel is available in 7 variations: Dry Skin, Sensitive Skin, Cooling Sensation, Lavender Kiss, Alluring Avocado, Radiant Apricot and Floral Passion.

    The fun new In-Shower Moisturizer ($3.99-$4.99 USD) gives a unique showering experience.  Once done shaving, apply moisturizer to wet skin, then rinse and pat dry. My legs are super soft and slick after I use this product. Plus, it claims to lock in moisture for up to 24 hours after using for 5 consecutive days. This would eliminate use of after shower moisturizer. Pretty nice, huh!

    Satin Care In-Shower Moisturizer comes in two formulas, Sensitive Skin and Dry. I used the dry and love the creamy fragrance.
