Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
I like customizing different things to suit my unique needs. The ability to mix and match the blades and handles was great because I could match the handle that was most comfortable to hold with the blade that left my skin feeling its best.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
The cartridge that impressed me the most was the Venus Breeze Spa. I admit I am a bit biased towards this blade because of its amazing tropical scent, which made me feel like I was being pampered. Olfaction is a powerful sense! The Venus ProSkin MoistureRich came a close second. My legs felt smoother than with any other razor I've used before- and with no nicks!

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
I was particularly impressed by the variety of handles that the different razors had to offer. There is literally a handle to suit every need: thick, skinny, long, short, soft, hard. My personal favorite was Embrace because it allowed me to use the razor with the assurance that it wouldn't slip or nick my skin.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
I combined my favorite cartridge with my favorite handle in the combination of the Venus Breeze Spa with the Embrace. It was truly a luxurious shave!

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
The moisture bars on the cartridges did an amazing job at leaving my legs soft and moisturized. I love that after using these razors, I don't have to worry about them cracking from dryness and constantly putting lotion on them.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
The quality of the handles far exceeds those of other brands that I have used in the past, because they are contoured to fit the shape of your hand and the grips will ensure the blade goes where you want it to go.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
After using the Venus razors, my legs are in the best condition they have ever been. They are so smooth, I just can't stop feeling them! Using these razors is easy, feels great, and leaves my legs with unblemished results.

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes. Its nice to know that it doesn't matter if you have a different cartridge than the handle, it will still attach. Sometimes I have extra cartridges and want a new handle/cartridge to try but I can't because it had to be handle specific. But not with Venus. You can try something new and still use your current blades.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
My favorite cartridge is the Venus and Olay. I like how it has five blades to make sure you have a nice, clean shave. Also, it had the scented moisture bar to make your skin silky smooth. I wish the package came with two cartridges.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
My favorite handle was the Venus Embrace due to the colour and soft grip. I do though, don't care for the shower pod. I like a basic hook; easier to clean.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
To me the Olay and Embrace had the same handle just different colour so both with the Olay cartridge was my favorite.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes it did. I found I didn't have to moisturize my legs after. Also, if I didn't have shaving cream at a certain section of my legs, the gel bars took care of it. The only problem is that the moisture/gel bars didn't last very long.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Yes, I hate buying a razor when wet, it slips through my hands and I'm afraid of cutting myself.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes, I love the feeling of soft smooth skin without stubbles. I probably had the smoothest skin at the swimming pool.

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes I did! I didn't really realize they were interchangeable as in the past I'd buy the same cartridge refills that came with whatever handle I had on hand.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
My favorite cartridge was the Venus Embrace because I found it gave the closest shave the first time without me having to go over my legs again.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
The Venus Olay handle. I loved that it was a nice pink as well as having a completely non-slip grip!

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
The Venus Olay handle with the Embrace cartridge for if I were shaving at home which is where I mostly shave but for on the go I'd switch the handle to the Venus Proskin for the convenience of the built in shave bars.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes I did and my skin felt so silky smooth after shaving.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
I did, especially with the Venus Olay handle and I liked that they weren't so bulky as I have found other handles and are more contoured to the shape of my hand.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes they were! Sometimes with other razors I found myself having to do touchups right after my shower but not with the Venus razors.

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Mixing and matching didn't really matter, the handles are quite similiar, there are only 2 different 'kinds' and different colours. Aside - there wasn't a box for this, but I did not like the packaging that hides the razor, you should be able to see exactly what you are getting.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
I definitely prefer the 5 blades and could not tell the difference between the moisture strips

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
I prefer the ones with the pointer finger grips, I believe the venus embrace was one of the handles with the bumps on the back side.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
Definitely the Venus embrace

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
They were very moisturizing, although the venus divine did not last long.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Only the ones with the extra grip lines

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Mixing and matching the Venus handles and cartridges makes it easier to try the different blades without having to purchase the whole package then having a bunch of handles around to deal with.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
It was difficult to decide which was my favorite cartridge but I think Venus & Olay Sugarberry Scent is the one. I have always preferred more blades so this cartridge has that as well as the lovely scent.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
The handles on all the razors are very good and all are about the same in size and shape with little tweeks on each, so I would have to say it would be more of a color choice for me.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
Venus Breeze Spa handle and the Olay Sugarberry Scent cartridge.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes I found they have outstanding moisturizing properties.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Absolutely they have better grip handles.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
My skin felt great after using the Venus razors and it was very difficult to choose just one razor.

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
I absolutely enjoyed mixing the Venus cartridges with the handles. I love the you can interchange whichever handle you like with your favorite shaving cartridge. Very convenient!!!

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
After trying all of the different cartridges there were two in particular that I absolutely loved. The first one of my favorites is the Venus & Olay new Sugarberry Scent. This is the first time that I had tried this cartridge and I love love it because it was super gentle on my skin, glides really easy with no pulling. The scent is great and left my skin incredibly smooth and soft A+ The second cartridge that I really liked is the Venus Embrace. This one I have not tried before either and I really liked the easy gliding blade. No irritation and very smooth. Both of these cartridges provided a clean close shave, which left my legs and underarms really smooth for days. Other razors I've tried didn't provide a close shave, which resulted in having to shave more often.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
I really liked them all, they're easy to gripe, very light and beautifully designed. If I had to choose my top two they would be The Venus Spa Breeze and Venus & Olay.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
My favorite cartridge and handle combination would be the Venus & Olay cartridge with the Venus Spa Breeze handle!!

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes all of the Venus cartridges provided outstanding moisturizing!! After trying all of the cartridges my skin felt incredibly smooth and very well moisturized. Other brands left my skin feeling tight and not moisturized.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
The material of the Venus handles lends incredibly well while wet. They don't slip out of your hand while your shaving. I also love the included razor holder for the shower, so genius!!

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes after trying all of the cartridges my skin felt incredibly smooth and very silky!!

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes, I did love trying the venus cartridges and handles I received.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
The only cartridge that did not nic or leave slimy gel on my legs/underarms was the venus embrace. I did not enjoy the gel bars at all, they were rather disgusting and the 3 blade razor (venus original) wasn't enough blades to get all the hair

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
My favorite handle was the venus & olay sugarberry. It was very comfortable to shave with. I found most of the handles quite confortable. Good grip on them.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
The Venus Embrace Razor with the Venus & Olay Sugarberry Handle.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Absolutely not. I thought they were slimy and gross. And I also had razor burn the first few time I used each of the razors.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Yes, the Venus handles definately have better grip then most razors

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
No, unfortunately I did not have silky smooth skin after usin Venus razors. I was hoping that maybe I would switch from my old razor to one of the 7 new ones we recevied. But I don't think I would ever change.

 
 

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
yes! Very much thank you! :)

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
To my surprise, I really liked the Venus Breeze. At first, i wasn't sure about not using shaving cream on my legs, as my skin is quite sensitive. To my surprise, the shave gel bars worked great, and got a super clean shave and it didn't irritate my skin at all. An I loved not having to use the shave gel, as I have a 2 year old son, and any step I can cut out is great in the morning. It makes the difference between being having the time to shave my legs or not shave my legs in the morning! :) I also liked the Venus Embrace when I used it with shave gel. It gave me a very close shave that lasted almost 2 days without being able to feel stubble.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
I also really liked the handle for the Venus Breeze. I liked the angle of it as well as the little thumb spot on the end of the handle. I didn't like the Venus & Olay hand nearly as much.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
It would be the Venus Breeze combo.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
No more than any other cartridges. I always use a moisturizer after shaving, so I'm not sure what their long lasting moisture is like.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Definitely. Like I mentioned earlier, the angle and the thumb grip on the end of the handle are awesome and make shaving so nice and easy!

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Definitely, especially after using the Venus Embrace cartridge.
