Soft, smooth legs!

Shaving can be a royal pain in the you know what. Not so anymore thanks to the Venus & Olay razor! Find out how this product measured up.

Name this product:

Gillette Venus & Olay Exfoliating Razor, Sugarberry Scent (, $11)

How this product looks and feels:

Unlike the original Venus & Olay razor, the new Sugarberry scented one has a pretty berry-colored handle. Each razor cartridge features five blades surrounded by moisture bars.

What I liked about this product:

I loved the fact that this razor gave me a super close shave without nicking my skin like so many other razors. Shaving can be a chore sometimes, but when it's a quick, painless process, like it was when using this razor, it's a bit less annoying.

What I would change about this product:

I wouldn't change anything about this product. It's the best razor I've tried in the years I've been reviewing products.

Describe the application process, how often you used the product and for how long:

I have been using this product every other day for several months now in the shower. After wetting my skin and the razor head to activate the moisture bars, I gently shaved.

Describe what you liked or didn’t like about the application process:

I liked how the razor moved to fit my curves, and gave a close, non-painful shave. The razor handle was easy to grip in the slippery water, too. The moisture bars can get a little gooey after each use, but you just have to wipe them off. Easy enough to do!

Describe the results you saw over time:

I've been using the razor for a few months now and after shaving, my legs definitely feel smooth and soft. The razor doesn't dry out my skin like a lot of other brands and it helps moisturize, too.

I would recommend this product for: 

Women who hate having to use messy shaving cream while shaving. The built-in moisture bars make shaving without shaving cream a comfortable experience!

How I felt about the scent of this product:

The new Sugarberry scent is perfect for summer! Most razors don't have a built-in smell, so this was definitely an added bonus that made shaving a bit more special.

Additional comments:

If you're looking to make shaving a bit less of a chore this summer, this is the razor for you! You can get a fast, easy shave without having to stop to wipe your skin constantly from nicks.
