Body Care, Reviews - April 23rd, 2009
The weather is getting warmer here in Oregon, and I’ve actually considered cracking out my capri pants… except… oh yeah, I’m really lazy and don’t shave my legs very often. That’s where the Gillette Venus Embrace comes in!
One of the reasons I don’t like to shave is the inevitable nicks and cuts I get. I am a well-rounded girl (in more ways than one, but in this case means I gots me some chubby legs) and trying to shave a rounded surface is tricky. I think I may have found my holy grail razor!
The Embrace has FIVE blades, yes FIVE! This means fewer swipes are needed to really get the job done, and fewer swipes mean fewer chances of nicks. The handle is perfectly shaped for an easy grip, no slipping or dropping it. The razor head has a very nice flat shape that also seems to really help with preventing cuts, and a “ribbon of moisture” to help with glide. You will still want to use a shave gel or cream of some kind, but if you just want to do a quick touch-up pass, the moisture strip is enough.
Also very high on the cool features list is the pod it comes with, that has a suction cup to stick to your shower or tub. The pod holds your razor in place and also opens up to reveal storage for extra blades. Sweet!
It’s pricey, but if you hate cutting yourself shaving, check out the Gillette Venus Embrace razor. It rock!
