Okay. Lets get a little personal. 

I have sensitive skin. Not just my face but my entire body seems to be sensitive. Heavily scented lotions, sprays, shampoos... forget it. I get itchy. I get red bumps. I get annoyed. All I want to do is smell good.

Same with razors. Those fancy smancy razors with the "moisture" sticks? No way. Those annoying moisture sticks do nothing but make me want to scratch my legs off. 

Then along came Venus Embrace - SENSITIVE!!

read on to see my thoughts!!
So before I sent this razor to try, Ive been using a plain Jane, Bic 2 blade disposable razor. It had no moisture strip to break me out and was cheap. 

The box claims this one to be "Dermatologist tested for sensitive skin". Really? I'll be the judge of that.

I put this razor to the test. Underarms, legs and other unmentionables (I did say personal right?).

Not a single red bump. Not one. 

And afterwards, there was no itching. The aloe moisture strip kept my legs from feeling like I just ripped off an entire layer of skin (... I know you know what I'm talking about it!).

Although I'm unsure of the price of this razor and replacement heads just yet, I'm sure it's going to be pretty costly. Which is one reason why I steer clear of Venus products in the first place. On average, they run $20 for 4  replacement heads. Seems like a lot for something I replace every few days.  My 2 blade Bics run me about $3 for 10 of them. 

I might pray for an amazing sale and a coupon for these and use them in the Summertime when my skin is actually seen. 

These razors do work wonders, but for someone like me, young and on a strict budget, these are more a luxury item.

Unless of course they only costs $5 for a 4 pack.     I can dream right?

If you are interested in learning more you can find Gillette on Facebook or Twitter

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. This by no means swayed my opinion either way and all opinions are my own.
