Gillette Venus Swirl Razor and Shave Gel - Review

Gillette Venus Swirl Razor*, $9.99, and Gillette Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel*, $3.99
Hello, beauties! It may be winter now, but warmer weather will be upon us sooner than we know. That means we'll be trading in our skinny jeans and leggings for sundresses and our shortest shorts, and sussing out our shaving routine to get our sleekest gams yet. So when I was approached by BzzAgent on behalf of Gillette to trial their newest razor and shave gel, I jumped at the chance to put today's duo to the test on my sadly neglected pins. If your shaving routine is in need of a revamp, read on!

The Gillette Venus Swirl Razor is the newest razor in the popular Venus line. Introducing Flexiball technology, the Gillette Venus Swirl boasts superior control around our most sensitive contours. It also features five blades and two moisture strips for a close, complete shave. None of those multiple passes over one area to remove a few stubborn hairs!

This razor is best paired with the Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shaving gel. This deliciously purple shaving gel gives excellent coverage to ensure you never miss a spot, has five times the moisturizers (like shea butter) to nourish the skin long after you're through, and a fantastic scent to make every shave feel like a proper pamper. Plus, it's as friendly on your budget as it is on your skin!

To be honest, I was skeptical going into trying these out. I usually feel that these types of razors cost more than necessary and stick to cheap disposables. I also just use a little bar soap when I shave to save on cost. However, I have to admit that I got a much closer shave with the Gillette Venus Swirl Razor, and while the Flexiball isn't super revolutionary, I definitely felt more confident that I wasn't going to knick my knees and ankles. The real winner in my mind was the Gillette Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shaving gel. My legs felt absolutely amazing after my shave using it, and the softness and moisture lasted well into the next day.

If you're like me and using disposable razors, I'd recommend looking into investing into the Gillette Venus Swirl Razor instead if the price seems right. But of the two, the Gillette Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shaving gel is the one that needs to make it straight onto your shopping list!

Have you tried the new Gillette Venus Swirl Razor and Shave Gel? What products do you use to get your legs warm weather ready?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!

  1. I love trying out new shaving gels. (Weird, I know.) And this Touch of Olay Violet Swirl is going to be mine by the end of this day. (If I can find it!) Ive got company coming into town this weekend and we're going to be at the beach a whole lot, so I need to get my legs ready. :0
    Thanks for your great review.

  2. As existing, relatively expensive, safety razor blades dulled quickly and needed continuous sharpening, a razor whose blade could be thrown away when it dulled would meet a real need and likely be profitable.

  3. The safety razor is a long time investment. Because you can use a safety razor for a long time. Even some best safety razor you can use for your life time.
