This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Gillette Venus but all opinions are 100% my own.
I’m not ashamed to admit that during the winter I rarely shave my legs. I’m not wearing shorts and a little extra hair adds some warmth. This year Spring has come a bit early to South Carolina and that means it’s time to break out the shorts and the razors.
I’m not even going to lie when SheSpeaks asked if I wanted to review the Gillette Venus Swirl and I realized what it was I jumped at the chance. I bought my husband the Gillette ProGlide last summer and he absolutely loves it so I figured that the Gillette Venus Swirl would be similar.
Of course once I got the Gillette Venus Swirl out of the package, before I even put the blades on, you know I had to test to see if it really did swivel like the animation above. It did but it was a little stiff, however, once I applied the blades the motion became much smoother and I couldn’t wait to use it!
If the swivel action of the Gillette Venus Swirl didn’t have me ready to try the Gillette Venus Swirl then reading about the blades would have. The blade head of the Gillette Venus Swirl totes a new Microfine Comb, five Contour blades, and the blue strips are a MoistureGlide Serum that is water activated. Yep I was sold.
The real question though was to stick with my old shaving cream, a cheap one from Walmart, or go with the Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shaving Cream that was sent with the Gillette Venus Swirl. Seeing as how I have eczema and the one I normally use is for sensitive skin so it doesn’t irritate the eczema as much I was all set to go with my normal shaving cream.
However, when I tested the product on the back of my hand for the pictures for this post I fell in love with not only how creamy the texture of the Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shaving Cream was but also how moisturizing it felt not only sitting on my skin but after I wiped it off. When I looked back at the packaging and realized that was because it had 5 times the moisturizers in it I knew I had to try this with the Gillette Venus Swirl.
Having eczema you go into shaving knowing that you’re going to have some nicks, so when you have a shaving experience with hardly any you’re wowed…when you have none you’re down right shocked. The Gillette Venus Swirl did such a great job of adjusting around my knees and any flareups I had but it still got all the hairs! My legs were so smooth afterwards and I had no nicks. I’ve already added replacement blades for the Gillette Venus Swirl to my grocery list.
