The ease of shaving with the great smell and close shave makes the chore of shaving easier and faster.
But I gave this a good test. My leg hair was at a max of two weeks of growth. These blades were really sharp and the olay bar really did moisturize my skin. I don't normally use shaving cream but will use cheap hair conditioner instead. The moisture bar was better than conditioner. I really didn't need to slather lotion on my legs right after my shower I like normal.
The reason it is not getting a 5 star rating is because I had to go over the same section of skin more than once to get a smooth shave. I gave it another chance on my forearms where my hair is longer but much softer. That was worse. I don't know if it was the length of my hair or the thickness but my arm experience was worse. I had to go over the same sections a few times to get a semi close shave. The shave was close but once I dried my skin there were still a ton of hair in random places that I know I shaved stuck around. Annoying.
I feel like this does save time in 2 ways: not having to use shaving cream or lotion right after the shower.
I've used lotion bars built in razors before. Make sure you keep the running water off the razor when not in use. I keep the cover in it because if water runs on the lotion bar constantly it wastes the point of the whole product.
The blade refills will fit on any other Venus razor handle so if you have another version of the Venus you can just buy then cartridge packs to save a little money.
I did kinda enjoy using it but I probably won't repurchase it only because I'm a creature of habit and prefer my conditioner method instead of a built in bar. The razor is sharp but I think because of the length of my hair it didn't work as well. It seemed to get clogged up fast and I had to go over each section a couple times.
I was sent this product for free my Gilette for my honest, unbiased opinion. I have no ties to the company and want you, as a consumer, to have enough confidence in my review so that you can make an informed decision on whether this is right for you.
