Drugstore Buy of the Week - Gilette Venus + Olay Exfoliating Razor Kit, Sugarberry Scent (Plus Chrissy Teigen Bridal Shower sneak peek!)
Why should the men have all the amazing shaving technology?
Now with Gillette Venus + Olay Exfoliating 5-blade razor, we ladies can get a smooth shave, moisturize our skin and experience a yummy Sugarberry scent while we're shaving!
Around both edges of the razor are Olay moisture bar strips. The combination of the thin razors and the moisturize bars meant that I had no dragging, pulling or discomfort while I shaved. As a matter of fact, it's so smooth, I had to check my skin a few times to see if the hair was actually being removed (and it was).
The Sugarberry scent (a bit like a strawberry/raspberry combination) contained in the gel around the razor is a nice bonus. It lingered a bit as I was shaving in the shower, but was very light and not too sweet or overwhelming. The Sugarberry is also present when the package is opened, but it's just the perfect little lift.
The razor also did a great job of moisturizing my skin and making it smooth to the touch when I was done - no razor bumps! If you're using on your legs in particular, this shape of the razor head and handle is perfect for maneuvering around the legs, calves, etc. I found that shaving cream was not really necessary, but it worked well with it as well.
And...speaking of legs - last week I also was invited to the Gillette Venus Bridal shower for model Chrissy Teigen (shown left), who is engaged to superstar singer, John Legend. Chrissy told us that she is obsessed with exfoliation, and she loves Venus’ 5-blade technology and built-in shave gel with the Olay Moisture Bars because it gently exfoliates and smooths the skin for the closest shave.
She's got legs for days - and yes the were smooth and perfect! - RLB
