I am particular about razors. And I have the right to be. I shave my legs every day. Yes, every single day. Even in the winter. I am not kidding! I don't like stubble. I also don't like nicks. So, when it comes to razors, I am particular. I want something that gives me a close shave so my skin feels silky smooth, but I don't want to nick my knees and ankles along the way. I want something that fits in the curves of bikini lines and glides over my kneecaps.
And I found it with Venus Embrace. Before you give me an argument, hear me out. I tried Venus razors years ago and wasn't overjoyed with them. However, they must have improved things over time, because after trying again, they are my favorite razors. Not to mention, now, any Venus blade refill fits on any Venus razor handle. So, now I am inclined to try other Venus blades.
I really like the Venus Embrace because the razor just seemed to glide over my legs, kneecaps and bikini line. It "fit" everywhere. I don't use shaving gel, just plain old soap, but the strip on the razor really makes it smooth. The shave is close--even at the end of the day, my legs still feel smooth and without stubble.
I also love that I am not adding to the landfill if I change razor blades. Think about how many people every year dispose of the handles when they get a new blade. That is an awful lot of handles in our landfills!
Disclosure: As a member of Influenster, I received a Venus razor and extra blade. As always, this review contains my honest opinions.
