Does your razor make you feel like a goddess?

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.
