I must say, I usually try everything from Olay at least once. My mom has always reached for Lancome & Olay since I can remember so they are kind of a natural choice for me. I must say, I didn’t see this coming! Olay partnering to make a razor? But they did, & I love it! I received this in my Love Voxbox from Influenster & I’m glad I did!
What Gillette Venus & Olay say about this product:
For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Venus’ best shaving technology works with Olay Moisture Bars, offering women best-of-both-worlds shaving and skin expertise. Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close.
- Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles.
- Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required.
- As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment
So there are some real positives to this razor! This might sound strange, but I’m razor picky. For a long time, I loved the Intuition razor for a long time, but it only worked on my legs because it was too bulky for my underarms & didn’t always get my ankles well. Then I fell for the Gillette Venus (the regular one I guess?) because it was so precise. But after using the Intuition, it was annoying to use a shave gel again because I had to, not by choice. Then in walks this beauty from Gillette Venus & Olay.
Big moisturizing head? Check! Look at it next to my Essie bottle for reference!
Great blades that kill every hair? Check.
Ah, the power of this combination. Ultra moisturizing, sturdy, comfortable to hold, & come with a much better holder than the previous box like contraption. I like the simplicity of just the hanging hook. Also, much less slippery/bulky than my Intuition as well!
My ONLY negative? The price is pretty steep for only one blade. Yep, mine only came with one blade in this package. But, I love what it does. I pretty much switched out 2 razors for 1! I don’t recommend this one if you don’t shave daily though because your bar will get funky. Also remember to keep it in a dry place so the bar doesn’t melt off!
