I had been using the Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Razors for years and recently replaced with this product because I found it to be more cost effective. I love the handle, I have an easier time shaving. At first I wasn't used to how much pressure to put on the razor and was shaving unevenly because I kept thinking I was going to cut myself . After I got used to it I haven't had any problems getting a close shave. I love that it has more razors than the Venus and noticed that they didn't get dull as quickly. That may be because of the travel cap. The reason I switched to this one from my old razor was to continue to avoid taking the time to put on shave gel. The moisturizer on this lasts much longer as long as you store it away from running water. I found that if I left it in the shower the white part disappeared very quickly, but if you only have it near water when shaving it lasts a much longer time than I expected. It is pricey, but compared to my last razor, it is actually much cheaper and I am happy with that. Being a mom on the go I'm willing to spend a little bit of extra money if it means more time for other things. This is actually the first razor I have found where I stop stealing my husband's from time to time. In fact, I caught my husband stealing this one!
