The Gillette Venus Swirl is the first and only razor with a flexiball. The felxiball does not have a 360 pivot but it slightly pivots to get into the tricky areas. This razor makes shaving behind your knees a little easier. I don’t feel like a contortionist trying to shave when I use this razor.
I will add there is something different about the Swirl because I could only pass over an area once without nicking myself. I was so used to having to do two passes with my other Venus razors but this has a one-and-done style blade.
The Swirl has five contour blades that adjust to curves and a water-activated MoistureGlide serum that allows the blades to glide smoothly over skin. For an even smoother shave, the Venus Swirl has a MicroFine comb that glides hair to the blades.
Let’s chat about the Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel. Okay, the name is a little long but I love the gel. It is rich and thick…it stayed on the back of my hand while I took all of my pictures for this post without moving! It smells like a dream and I didn’t have a reaction to the fragrance. Sensitive skin issues…
The packaging for the razor and shave gel are both gorgeous. You know I love anything purple.
I would buy this version of the Venus by Gillette. I love that I only have to do one pass and it takes less time to shave these big ole legs of mine. I have better things to do than to spend time shaving my legs and I’m sure you do too. My only issue was the nicking if I passed over an area more than once but I had to recondition myself and pay more attention to where I was shaving.
The gel was great and it doesn’t leave me with a sticky residue after I rinse my legs off. It was easy to rinse out of the razor without leaving any buildup that can dull blades quickly.
My love of the Venus line continues. I think the Gillette Venus Swirl Razor is my new go-to razor. You can pick up the razor and shave gel from your local Walmart.
Have you tried this new razor? Are you a Venus Razor fan?
