Gillette Venus Breeze : The Event

A sunny Tuesday afternoon saw Bangalore Beauty Bloggers meeting at The Oberoi on MG Road. We had gathered there for a Rendezvous with the multi-talented Indian Actor Kalki Koechlin along with Venus Beauty Experts, Dr Rashmi Shetty, Celebrity Dermatologist and Aesthetic Physician and Namrata Soni, Celebrity Make-Up Artist.

Dr Rashmi Shetty and Namrata Soni highly recommend shaving as the best and most hassle free method of hair removal for women and we were there to demystify our Ladies shaving myths and to know more about the newly launched Gillette Venus Breeze.


Complementing the newest lavender hued Gillette Venus Breeze, the stage was lit up in similar colors, lavender and white.

Bloggers caught up with each other, chatted up with known faces and got to know newer ones. Refreshed after a cup of Tea and Cookies we took our seats and Anchor Kavea R Chavali took to the stage. The vibrant Kavya had us smiling instantly, with her quips and her infectious smile.

Kalki made her appearance in style, on a revolving prop, with an enormous Gillette Venus Breeze next to her.

Kavya kept up the mood and began a tete a tete with Kalki, who was warm and funny as she shared her stories with us, about using a ‘2 Rs’ razor in Boarding school which always left her with cuts and moving on to the convenience of using a sophisticated technology like Gillette.


We were then joined by Dr Rashmi Shetty and Namrata Soni.

Namrata Soni too has been shaving since she was a teenager and shared her experiences of hounding friends and relatives to get her a Gillette when they travelled abroad and the delight of buying her own in India for the past few years.

Dr Rashmi Shetty cleared all the clouds of doubt every blogger had with her concise and clear answers.


An afternoon well spent with an interactive session with  the 3 shaving advocates who enlightened the audience on the benefits of shaving while busting common myths that surround it and our personal Gillette Venus Breeze to use and see for ourselves.

I was invited by Gillette to attend this ‘Subscribe to Smooth’ Blogger Event. The views shared above are however my own.
