I really like the GILLETTE VENUS BREEZE RAZOR. I have used a VENUS BREEZE for a number of years now, and this convenient, one step razor always gives me soft, smooth legs, with no nicks or cuts. The VENUS BREEZE RAZOR line is pretty, feminine, and clearly "made for a woman, not a man." This version, the GILLETTE VENUS BREEZE, SPA BREEZE RAZOR comes in a nice white tea scent that is a very pleasing change of pace.
Like the standard (purple) VENUS BREEZE, the GILLETTE VENUS BREEZE, SPA BREEZE RAZOR (pale pink) comes with a holder which mounts directly to the wall of your shower or bath. Inside the holder is space for two spare razor cartridges, each sealed in their own individual packaging. Each cartridge has three blades, which give your legs a sexy, ultra close shave. The three blades are surrounded by gel bars. There is no need to use shaving cream; just moisten the gel bars to get that silky, satiny feel. The gel also is a light moisturizer, but you will still need to use your regular skin cream if you live in any kind of extreme climate.
To get the best shave with a VENUS BREEZE, soak in a warm tub or stand under the shower to let the heat open up the pores of your skin. This will help any razor to give you a closer shaver. While you are soaking, get the cartridge wet, so that the gel gets creamy. You never want to shave with a dry razor anyway...ouch! I usually just toss the razor in the tub for a minute or two. Then shave away in your normal manner, and you will have the softest legs of your life! If you do prefer the shower to the tub, then another nice thing about VENUS BREEZE is that you never have to worry about shaving your legs quickly, before the shaving cream rinses off in the shower spray. Just one less thing to worry about.
The only negative about the VENUS BREEZE is that the gel bars do not last as long as the blades! With care, the blades in each cartridge last up to a month. (The triple blades shave my legs so close, that I really only need to shave them every other day.) But the gel bars either run out or fall off in 2 - 3 weeks. Then I go back to the shaving cream until the blades give out.
Other than that, I think the VENUS BREEZE is an excellent product. I have been satisfied with it for many years. If Gillette could just make the gel bars last a bit longer...the VENUS BREEZE would go from a great product to a perfect one.
