meh- I bought the wrong ones, but they're still razors I thought. Except that my legs were all stubbly the very night I had just shaved! So sad... I usually buy Venus razors ( but i only know which one they are if i am in the store) and they keep my legs smooth for a few days. Sad that these stink.
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.

i had to replace my blade every time i needed to shave otherwise i got razor burn. the price of these and using 1 each time is rather expensive however I do have very sensitive skin. i hoped these would be great and they are but i look for a razor that i can use more then once without breaking out in razor burn [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have bought Gillette shave gel for several years, and this is pretty much their typical formula. I'm not sure what makes it good for people with "ultra sensitive" skin, I don't notice too much of a difference to their other shave gels. I don't love the medicinal smell. Nonetheless, not a bad product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I wasn't aware of the gillette satin care ultra sensitive shave gel until participating in this program. Normally when using shaving cream to shave it leaves my skin dry and shave bumps everywhere. This ultra sensitive formula is amazing. My legs are smooth and not dry at all. No shave bumps either. Great product!! I recommend this shave gel to everyone! Once you try it you will not go back to your old gel. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
One of my favorite things about this shave gel is the design of the can. I love the way the bottom is molded because I don't have any issues with rust or it getting gross. The product is easy to dispense and feels good on my legs. I love how smooth I am able to shave and that my legs stay smooth. The smell is pleasant and what I would expect. I will purchase this again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Before trying this product, my daughter and myself regularly used skintimate. I find that when using satin care, my legs feel smooth longer. I feel safe using satin care. I have sensitive skin, and knowing that I can use satin care and feel great, days after a clean shave means very much to me. I do not end up with bumps the next morning when I wake up or have to worry about an allergic reaction with this shaving cream. This product says it all: Satin care and ultra sensitive.

I love this shave gel, i have sensitive skin, im always getting little bumps after shaving and knicks. This gel made my legs feel smooth, and i didnt have any noticeable bumps. I would definately buy and use this product regularly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
