Gillette Venus Breeze

Gillette’s Venus Breeze is one of the newer razors created by the company. The razor heads have built-in shaving gel, which eliminates the need to use soap or shaving cream when shaving in the shower.

I actually bought this razor without even noticing the built-in shaving gel on the razor head. I was just looking for a new razor to replace my old Schick one from several years back. When I first used the Venus Breeze, I was very impressed with how much simpler and more efficient it was to use than my old razor–I just had to wet the razor blades, which would then activate the “shave gel bars” and allow for suds to start. The razor works very well, and I can see why it’s a great product.

However, I do have a complaint about the stand/holder that comes with the razor. The design is quite horrible–I guess Gillette expects for women to stick the holder in the shower for easy access, but the darn holder actually doesn’t stay stuck to the shower wall. My holder fell twice within the first 24 hours, which in turn made me remove the whole package from the shower because I was already tired of hearing the thing fall in my shower. Instead of using sticky tabs for the razor holder, Gillette should think about have a suction cup in the back–that way, it will stick a lot easily in the shower, especially after the shower walls are wet.

I guess that’s my only complaint about the product.
