This is one product, depending on your skin type, that can be worth the extra money. I tend to have super course hair on my legs and super sensitive skin on my legs also. I tried the gillette venus embrace one and it worked like butter! My skin did not get irritated and the refills are much more expensive but clipping coupons in the Sunday paper and also matching it to specials provided by stores (CVS always has a special on it) you could save more money than you spend if you wait for the right time..
My razor cost me 15 and the refills 20 (I got the big box because I go through them like nothing) and the store had a special for purchasing the razor and getting "bucks" to use in the store and with a coupon, I got the refills for free.
It id definitely worth it.
