Influenster Review: Venus & Olay Razor

It's getting to be the time of year where shaving every day is going to become a necessity. That every 4th day routine ain't gonna cut it (what?! don't act like you never...). While I don't consider my skin to be sensitive, sometimes shaving every day can cause irritation or, at the very least, dryness. Venus & Olay have teamed up to rid the everyday shaver of both of these problems in addition to giving you a close shave with a combination of Olay's moisture bars and Venus' signature stellar shave job.

While I am a Venus girl all the way, I was a little skeptical about how effective a razor like this could be because of the thickness of the moisture bars. They looked too bulky and cumbersome to really get into the tightest and most sensitive of areas and still be effective. Little did I know, this little guy is a gymnast.

Look at the flexibility, folks!
With my fear of tight spaces out of the way, I turned my concern to the close shave. Once again, Venus & Olay thought it all out and the 5 blade razor provides a super close shave!

More details on the product (from influenster.com*):

  • 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

I used this razor to shave my underarms, legs, and bikini line and had absolutely no issues with dryness, irritation, ingrown hairs, or missed hairs. As far as the razor itself goes, I liked that it didn't get slimy or cracked and dried once I was done with it. It dried nicely and rehydrated well, too. If you have dryness issues, irritation issues, or are just a Venus or Olay fan, I recommend you try this out! Starting March 15th, these were available in drugstores and mass retailers.
