Happy Tuesday!! Shaving can be prickly business (pun absolutely intended). From choosing the right shaving cream or gel, to choosing the right blade for premium comfort and a close shave, there are several things to think about when deciding what brand to use to shave your body hair. It’s taken me a long time to find a razor that I’m comfortable with and delivers on a smooth shave and no razor bumps every time. And honestly? What’s worse than actually choosing the right blade is remembering to pick a new one (or new heads) up when they start to rust or dull. Enter: Gillette Venus and their Venus Direct subscription service for women.
Why You Need To Up Your Shaving Game In 2019
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gillette Venus. The opinions and text are all mine.
The Razor & My Personal Experience.
One of the reasons I love Gillette razors so much is that they feel like a premium quality razor. They have weight to them – they aren’t just flimsy plastic like so many other razors I’ve tried targeted towards women. They have the same flexiball technology my husband’s razor has so I don’t cut myself – it curves to the natural structure of my body. It also has a super comfortable grip that doesn’t get slippery when I’m in the shower. #bonus.
There are 4 new types of razor blades you can try now:
- Original – with 3 blades, a lubrication strip and rounded cartridge (this fits ALL Venus handles)
- White Tea – with 3 blades and moisture bars with built-in body butter in a delicious white tea scent
- Extra Smooth (my razor of choice!!) – with 5 blades, moisture ribbon, skin guard and rounded cartridge (also fitting ALL Venus handles)
- Olay Moisture – with five blades, moisture bars and body butter with Olay moisture
There are so many options to choose from – there truly is one for every woman. I’m so picky with my razors naturally – that I am always skeptical before buying them. They aren’t always cheap, and I just want the best shave possible without sacrificing quality or durability. Gillette Venus delivers all of that for me.
Shaving is a personal choice each woman decides for herself and her skin. Gillette Venus wants to give you a razor that is as unique and beautiful as you are. Your body should be celebrated because YOU are absolutely amazing just as you are.
The Subscription Service.
Because of the high demand, Gillette Venus has decided to introduce a new subscription service for their razors! It’s super customizable and you are able to pick the exact right features for you. You start with the easy 3-step process where you choose your custom handle, blade type and any additional features you may need for your body.
Gillette Venus promise speedy (and FREE) delivery right to your door. You can choose to have your refills shipped automatically – so no more forgetting how long you’ve had your blade (yikes) and running the risk of infection if you cut yourself. Based on how often you shave, this ensures you will never be without a fresh blade to shave with.
PLUS – it’s a great value. It’s the #1 female shaving brand in the world – you can trust that they are only creating products that are going to deliver on their promises. These blades are designed with YOU in mind. Plans start as long as $10 per month, and you can cancel anytime (with no insane hoops to jump through to do so).
At the end of the day – to shave or not to shave is a personal choice. But if you DO decide it’s right for you – Gillette Venus is there to make it as easy and painless as possible. They care about you, and they care about your skin. With added moisture bars and ribbons, extra blades and more – each razor is designed with you specifically in mind. I love that and it makes me feel good to support a brand that supports women.
