I shall be reviewing the Gillette Venus and Olay razor in today's post. 

The Claims: 
  • 5 razor blades get Venus close
  • Olay Moisture Bars release skin conditioners to help lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness
  • No need for separate shave cream
  • VanillaCrème scent
  • SoftGrip® handle for confident control
  • Shower Hook for convenient, in-shower storage
  • Easy-to-change cartridges
The Reality
I've used the Gillette Venus & Olay razor for the past couple of weeks since it was sent to me and I have to say that I've been converted. I have previously used Gillette venus razors but then switched to Wilkinson Sword.

The razor has two bars attached; one is the shaving cream and the other is the Olay moisturising bar. This makes it perfect for travel as it saves you carrying around a separate shave gel and moisturiser.

The razor gave me a close shave. I didn't get any redness or razor burn that I sometimes get due to my sensitive skin. My skin also felt very moisturised and nourished due to the Olay bar. Which also smelt lovely and fresh.

The set also comes with a handy shower holder which is rather useful to keep it handy.

The only thing I would say is that the blade can be bit bulky for a really close shave in certain areas such as underarms. Also the price is a tad on the higher side so I would definitely wait for it to be on promotion. (Which it currently is!)

The Price
Superdrug: £5.47 (on promotion regularly £10.99!)
Boots: £5.49 (on promotion regularly £10.99!)

The Ultimate Question: Would I repurchase? 

Overall score: 4.5/5.

What's your preferred method of hair removal? Have you tried the Gillette Venus & Olay razor?
