Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor Review

I received received Gillette's Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor. I must admit, I was highly skeptical. Oh, look, it has a "touch of aloe." Like I haven't seen that before. I have very sensitive skin, as well as rather coarse hair in some areas, and I have tried all kinds of hair removal techniques in an effort to find one that didn't leave me in pain.

I tested it in the shower with the Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel. Initially, I was pleasantly surprised. It left my lower leg feeling smooth and not at all irritated. I experienced the usual red bumps when I attempted to shave my inner thigh, but there was no pain. However, it ate my knee. While this is definitely one of the better razors for sensitive skin, its shape is too bulky and stiff to conform to the curves of one's body. I haven't gotten cuts on my knees in years while using other razors.

Overall, I would say if you have sensitive skin, and hair that isn't very coarse, and no knees, this will be great for you. Or if you only shave your lower legs.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
