If you follow me at facebook, you know I love a good deal. There are certain things I will pay for, quality being one of them. On the other hand, there are certain things, I refuse to pay full price for. Razor, are absolutely one of them. Years ago, before that #ExtremeCouponing ruined it for all of us good couponers out there, I got about 90+ razors for less then $20 when all was said and done. They lasted me forever. It’s been a few years, and my seemingly endless supply of razors has finally ran out. Even though couponing policies have changed, I still find my brand to be the best deal. But is it the best quality? They have changed the razor over the past years, and I have thought on a number of occasions of trying one of those fancy #Venus razors, but could never bring myself to pony up the money in my weekly food budget for different razors.
As luck would have it, I was able to try the #VenusRazor for free from Gillette! I have to say I was pretty excited to be able to try one of those upgraded versions with the moisture bars! Were my legs going to look like that of a Greek goddess when I was done? Will the close shave feeling last? Am I going to run around singing “I’m your Venus, your desire” while flashing everyone some leg? Will I be a razor convert and HAVE to buy these glorious razors from now on, forgoing my gender neutral handled bargain? Or perhaps a more realistic outcome, will I find a smoother closer shave?
I took a week to test it out.
First Shave: Pleasantly surprised. I got a close and smooth shave, but had to work a little around the knees, since it doesn’t flex. I did find by the next day my legs weren’t as smooth as they usually are.
Seven days later: #VenusRazor still provided a good shave. I did feel that the by the end of the week, the shave wasn’t as close as I’d like it to be, but it was definitely still a smooth shave, with less irritation.
Conclusion: Like any other razor I would buy it with a good coupon and sale.
