Gillette Venus & Olay Razor Review

This Gillette Venus & Olay razor was another product that was included in my Influenster voxbox. This is the first time ever that Gillette and Olay have come together to make a gold standard in a razor. I have used this a couple of times since I got it, so I think now is a good time to do a review.

 Here is how the product is described: 
- Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles. 
- Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required. 
- As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment.

 My Review:
The first thing I noticed when opening this razor was the smell from the moisturizing bar. So refreshing and a bit sweet, which I really enjoyed. I like razors that already have a moisturizing bar because then if I forget my shaving cream in the shower (which happens a lot) I just wet this razor and it's ready to use. Since the razor itself has 5 blades, it gave me a really close shave without much effort. I will definitely be buying the refills for this razor. 

A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. Packages of three replacement cartridges are available for about $14.99 - $19.49.

 Venus & Olay will be available starting March 15, 2012 at food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.
