I gave up the painful torture of waxing for the painless convenience of shaving about 8 years ago. I started off with using disposable razors, which was not a good idea at all, as the experience put me off shaving!
Then I chanced upon Gillette Venus, a razor created for women, and it was literally a smooth experience from then on.
Gillette has changed the shapes and colors of its razors over the years and it’s technology had just bettered with each change. When I was gifted the Gillette Venus Breeze at the Subscribe to Smooth, a Blogger Event hosted by Gillette I fell in love with the Lavender shade.
As I unpacked it a pleasant fragrance wafted towards me. The Breeze is not only lighter in weight but sleeker than its previous Aqua hued counterpart.
It’s contoured, non-slip handle is designed for a firm grip and control in wet and soapy environments.
An indicator lubricator strip with Aloe and Vitamin E , a standard feature in the Venus, which fade away when you are no longer getting the optimal Venus experience, and a sign to replace your blades.
The feature I loved the most? The 2-in-1 Razor with inbuilt moisture gel bars that not only provides a great shaving experience but also negates the need to use and additional soap or gel .
With the Venus Breeze I have had the smoothest shaving experience, so far. The blades glide like a dream, on skin moisturised and soaped by the gel bars. No dry skin post shaving. A delicate fragrance lingers on the skin for a while.
Venus Breeze comes at a great prize of INR 299/- with the 2-Blade pack priced at INR 350/-
Do’s and Don’ts to ensure a great shave and smooth skin;
- Never use the Razor on dry skin. Always wet skin thoroughly before shaving skin.
- Using Soap or Shaving Gel helps make shaving a smoother process.
- Dry skin well post shaving, by patting gently. Apply a sun screen immediately as shaving helps exfoliate the skin by removing the top dead layer of skin.
- Wipe Razor dry, disengage the blades, and store in a dry place to maintain lasting hygiene.
