I spent the earlier part of last week shedding my winter coat with the Gillette Venus Swirl™ razor. I would love to say “no judgment” as a southern gal never develops a winter coat, but it has been cold and I had no desire to shave my legs every day. Seeing as how I have been hiding out in cozy pants and sweaters, there was no need. (I also moved during the month of February and my razor has yet to appear among the boxes.) However, North Carolina is known for its changing weather and we jumped from 40 degrees to the 70’s and I needed to clean my act up in a hurry. Imagine you’re Magilla Gorilla and you want smooth legs for a cute dress. That’s your mental image for this review.
Gillette and WalMart reached out to me to ask if I’d like to give the new Gillette Venus Swirl™ a test and I took it as a sign. I headed to the shower with my new razor and the Gillette Venus Olay VioletSwirl™ Shave Gel, took a deep breath and got to work. The Olay® VioletSwirl™ shave gel was a pleasant surprise. I don’t normally use a shave gel because I find their fragrance overpowering and fruity. VioletSwirl™ is subtle, without that cheap candle mimicking spring scent.
Here is where I noticed the differences. I have been a Gillette Venus user for a long time (years). It is a great razor. But the Venus Swirl™ beats the Venus by a long shot. Venus Swirl™ is the first Venus razor to feature Gillette’s most advanced blade technology, with five Contour™ blades that cut hair at lower cutting force and have thinner, finer edges — the thinnest in Gillette’s history. The Contour™ blades individually adjust to a every curve and contour.
Combine that with the new proprietary FlexiBall™ technology and it offers a totally unique movement like no other male or female razor on the market. Venus Swirl™ is the first and only razor with the FlexiBall™, moving in multiple directions to navigate all of the tricky areas of a woman’s body. It helps shave hard-to-reach places and capture hairs other razors might miss. (They miss plenty — I have yelped many times since I started shaving while plucking a rogue hair from the back of my knees with tweezers.)
What really sold me was VenusSwirl’s™ new Microfine Comb and five Contour™ Blades. Pesky knee and ankle hairs and other tricky areas are no match for it! The comb grabbed hair you might have missed at the back of your knee and guides it to the blade. The visuals were almost too much for me it works so well.
