Name: Venus Embrace Razor
"Embrace, the latest razor from Venus, guarantees to shave you closer and get you closer. And closer."
To Purr About:
- handy razor holder that is convenient for use in the shower
- good grip handle that makes it easy to use
- nice clean shave
- affordable price
- doesn’t come with shave gel built in to shaver like other razors do
- I got some minor cuts near my knee
- hair seemed to grow back just as quickly when compared to my old razor
I figured it was time to upgrade to a newer razor – as I’ve been using the same old Gillette razor for a very, very long time.
I’ve always been tempted to try the Venus line of shavers, and this slim and sleek razor with five blades (compared to my old three-blade razor) caught my eye.
My first impression was disappointment that this razor didn’t have shave gel built in to it, but then I figured that was a good thing because shave gel isn’t costly and blades with shave gel built in probably are a bit costlier.
After using several times I have to say that while it offered a very clean shave (probably an improvement from my old razor) my hair unfortunately seemed to grow back at a similar rate. However I’m happy with the great grip and handling of this shaver. I guess new technology really is an improvement on the old technology in this case.
