My underarms skin is the most sensitive skin of my body. I tried using waxing and hair removal creams but was left with red and burning skin. I used to use disposable razors but after few months I noticed my underarms looked considerably dark. I thought of investing in a good razor and came across Gillette Venus Razor which is indeed a lovely find. Today I am going to review Gillette Venus Razor.

Gillette Venus Razor comes in a blue blister pack with all the information printed at the back. The packaging is really refreshing and feminine. As soon as you open the pack, you will find 1 razor, blade and a holder to keep the razor safe and secured. I always make sure to keep it in my shower bag to keep it clean and in good condition.
The razor itself is very light and pretty to look at. It is light blue in color and is made from plastic. It has three blades surrounded by soft protective cushions to give you a close, smooth shave with less irritation. The blades are spaced closer together to reduce pressure. The razor has soft rubber-y handles that gives a firm grip on the product while holding it. I use it with my shaving gel and sometimes when I am really in hurry I shave my underarms dry. Either way, the blades glides across the skin smoothly without putting pressure. The head of the razor adjusts itself and removes hair quickly. Instead of removing hair in one go I do it in small areas. My skin gets rid of unwanted hair and I do not need to go to the same area again. It feels soft and smooth without any traces of stray hair. I then rinse it off and pat it dry. My skin does not feel dry or irritated which I usually feel with other razors. I do not use razors for shaving legs or hands as I feel it might lead to ingrown hair. The razor does its job quickly when I am really in hurry and I need to wear sleeveless outfits. I have been using it for more than a month and the blade has not gone blunt yet. As always I need to shave my underarms frequently as they tend to grow back quickly. Blade refills are available in the market so you can change when they go blunt.
