Is Venus Gillette Platinum Razor For You?
Whether shaving is not part of your routine or not, you still need a dependable razor for SOS days, you need it on the go. There is always that transitioning phase where you just can’t use anything but shaving.
As for me, I live in Florida and Florida living gets intense… humidity, pools, boating, overheated cars during hot temperatures and spring hot-cold days!
You need a great razor or you will get stuck with a pants day on an accidentally hot day in the middle of spring.
So let’s talk Venus Gillette Platinum performance.
Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Style
Finally, Venus Gillette created something more elegant and classy, although shaving is supposed to be fun (hence all the fun colors).
Style has changed over the years and I feel in the times of rose gold, chrome and yellow gold elements with marble everything these days there is a need for some luxury looking razor that screams style.
If I am leaving it on the counter, I don’t want all those colors to pop like I’m in teenager’s bathroom. So Venus Gillette THANK YOU for something I can leave out on the counter next to my boyfriend’s high-end stuff and not to look tacky and ‘teenagie’.
Maybe one day you can create a luxury high-end edition. There is a market for it for sure.
Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Efficiency
Efficiency: I am very active and quite fit and defined, a big part of my style is athleisure (athletic and leisure clothing) so leggings and skinny jeans are a big part of my wardrobe.
Whether I am wearing an organic cotton leggings or synthetic I don’t want anything to poke through it, so I have to rely on quite an efficient razor, so I don’t have to have a time-consuming inspection of my legs.
I have noticed that 5 razor blades tend to do the job. If time management is a big concern of yours 5 razor blade is more efficient and more trustworthy (perfectionists can rejoice now).
Metal elements on the handle added not only style but also a sense of control and certainty to the movement. I have noticed the additional weight of the razor felt unusual at first but felt more smooth and more balanced during shaving.
A lot of people expected a full metal handle and were left disappointed that it had plastic elements, too. Personally, I feel like it was a good amount of both.
Lifting Venus Gillette Platinum razor left me feeling a little bit nostalgic due to heavier metal elements. It reminded me of my Dad’s vintage razors for a second or two.
Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Navigation
Metal part reduced pulling and glided better than just plastic alternatives. I wasn’t sure whether I liked the plastic elements on it at first.
But once I started shaving I realized that they were essential to the grip in-control feeling during the shave.
Venus Gillette Platinum razor navigated all the tricky places like kneecaps, behind the knees, back of the leg areas, ankles and underarm (my underarm is especially tricky), which was impressive.
The head did not feel too large or awkward, its mobility was pretty impressive.
How long the results from Venus Gillette Platinum Razor last?
I would say the shave lasts two solid days (although if you shave a lot and you take hair vitamins and supplements it can sure alter the days your shave lasts). The third day was tolerable (although I would shave again that day). The fourth day felt okay, but I would change shorts for capris. Do shave on the fourth day.
For how long you can use Venus Gillette Cartridge?
You can totally use the blades for several weeks. To prolong the life of the razor try to use it in cold or warm water.
