About Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor
You are probably no stranger to the Gillette Venus razor, but have you seen the new Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor?! This razor has a sleek metal handle and has 5 diamond-like coated blades for a better shave. The metal handle makes it more durable and also makes it feel sturdier. It also has a 360˚ Ribbon of Moisture that surrounds the blades to lubricate the skin when activated with water. These are currently available at Target and on Target.com. If you go in-store to purchase the razor you’ll be able to engage with a special Gillette Venus Platinum Touch and Learn aisle display until April 22nd.
My Review on Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor
Let me start by saying, I love Gillette Venus razors! I have used them for over a decade. The Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor is really nice and I like it better than the original version. I will never go back to a single blade razor. The 5 blades with the moisture ribbon really make shaving easier and faster. I have to admit, when I shave, I do it fast. I run the razor up and down my legs and hope for best! I find that I don’t cut myself with the Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor. It glides so smoothly and easily over my legs (and even my knees, which is always tricky) and the shave is so close!
Keeping my legs smooth and hairless is very important since I live in Florida and I do lots of outdoor activities during the sunny days! Shorts are basically what I live in during the week and swimsuits at the pool or beach are where my weekends are spent! I can’t have hairy legs!!
Is the Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor worth it?
I think the Gillette Venus Platinum Extra Smooth Razor is definitely worth the price tag of $12.99! This price includes the metal handle razor and two razor refills. The heavier metal handle featuring a satin chrome finish is not only elegant and durable, but also provides a heavier, premium feel for ultimate control when shaving. I also feel like the 5 diamond like blades don’t go dull as fast and makes the razors last longer. The razor works really well and I really have no complaints about the razor itself or the price!
