I have used a few different venus razors before and this one is slightly better. I have super sensitive skin and break out in razor burn a few days after shaving my legs. the blades are sharp and cut very close to the skin. I didnt have any razor burn the first time i used it by the second use the blades were not as sharp and i did get razor burn. Ideally id like to get a few uses out of a blade which is why i gave it 3 stars. the handle is universal for all venus blade refills which is handy.

We want you feeling like the confident, beautiful woman you are so we are sorry to hear that you sometimes have a reaction to shaving. Our goal is to provide a close and comfortable shave with a quality and value that is unsurpassed. We have a great team of people in place to make sure that each blade we produce is of the highest quality, and that it reaches you in perfect condition. The information you've shared is helpful for the team to make sure you're always getting the best Venus experience. You might find some of the tips below or on our website useful, if you don't already use them. Start the hair removal process with a shower or a bath (at least a couple of minutes long). This will help soften the hairs for a more comfortable and closer shave. Whilst still in the bath or shower, use a shave gel such as a share gel from the Satin Care range. It helps keep water in the hair and makes sure that the razor glides easily over your skin, protecting you from potential nicks and cuts and preventing shaving rash and razor bumps. Once the shave gel has been applied, you can start using the razor, using a light touch with long strokes. The direction you shave will depend on the body part. Shave legs from the ankles up. For your underarms, shave from all angles—up, down and sideways. For the bikini area, shave in the direction of hair growth first (inward) and against for an extra-close shave. After each shave, rinse and air-dry your razor to help it last longer. End your hair removal process by patting your skin dry and by applying your favorite moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated, healthy and smooth.
