58K Reviews: The Best Razors for Hard to Reach Places
Based on 58,377 Influenster Reviews
I will admit, before I first used it, I thought that there is no way this is going to give me a close shave...look at how big and bulky it is! This is not the case at all. I now LOVE this razor. Not only did it give me a close shave, it did it without irritating my skin!
I tend to have sensitive skin on my legs when it comes to shaving. I have tried many different razors and many different shaving creams trying to prevent irritation from shaving, whether it be razor burn or just itchy for being irritated. I did not experience any of that with this razor. And the best part, I didn't have to use anything else with it! That's right, no more shaving cream! These moisture strips are amazing!
There are a couple downsides though:
First, they run on the pricey side of razors, but I firmly believe you get what you pay for. You are getting a quality razor for your money, plus you can usually find coupons in the Sunday paper or online to help offset the cost.
Second, the moisture strips do not last as long as I would like. I can get a couple more shaves out of the blades after the moisture strips are gone.
And lastly, how you set this razor down after using it is important. I know this sounds silly, but it is like a bar of soap, if you sit it down while it is still wet it will dry to the side of your bathtub. What you really need is a hanging razor holder. Most razors come with one, but since all I got was the refill cartridge, it did not come with one.
All in all, I think I found a new favorite razor! And who knew that any Venus blade refill will fit any Venus razor handle? That definitely make life a little easier!
There's no moisture strip along the leading side of the blade (often found on razors like Venus and the Bella Soleil collection), so that helps with a smother shave since there's less bulk between skin and razor, but that also means you're more likely to get razor burn if you don't use a shave gel or cream. I rarely use any other type of razor.
