This time I received the Gillette Venus Secret Embrace Sensitive razor, and here’s what I think.
First of all, let me just say that my leg hair is blonde and thin, so I personally never had a problem with any razor, but when I shave quickly I always get the dreaded razor burn, and that’s way worse.
So when I shaved I wanted to see how good this razor was, it has 5 blades and it is super sharp, so be careful! I wanted to test what this razor could do, so I shaved the worst way possible to give you an honest review. I didn’t use any shaving cream on my legs, just water and it worked! Make sure you go slowly, it’s super sharp and I basically skinned my knee….it was definitely my fault…
Next, I shaved my underarms, and I made sure I worked slowly cause there is nothing more painful than a scratch on your armpit, I shaved on Saturday and the hair actually hasn’t grown back too much, I don’t know if that has anything to do with the razor but I just thought I would let you know.
Finally, I shaved the ever dreaded bikini area. I usually shave that area with some acne wash, the salicylic acid works to get rid of the redness that can occur. But I shaved without it. It definitely made my skin feel smooth, but my bikini area still suffered some redness. I’m not sure if this would have happened if I used the salicylic acid so I’ll try it an update !
Overall, I think this razor is great, it’s sharp, light, and the glide enhancers have aloe in it to help soothe skin. I would definitely recommend this razor if you are in the market for one!
Hope you enjoyed!
