Venus Vibrance Razor Review

I finally picked up my first vibrating razor after my beloved Gillette SensorExcel razor broke. The Venus Vibrance Razor ($10), which came out in 2005, is the first vibrating razor for women in the market. Its soothing vibrations claim to sweep away dull, dry skin and result in fewer nicks.

Although this is manufactured by the same company, it does shave a lot better than the SensorExcel. The shape also allows a better grip which makes shaving a lot easier. So far I have not gotten any nicks or cuts from it but then again, I hardly get any from other razors either. The vibrating feature is definitely a novelty but personally, I find it nothing but a gimmick and an excuse to charge customers more. I get the same results whether the vibrating feature is turned on or off. The cartridges also cost more than the regular ones (yet another way to rip customers off) so despite the fact that this comes in my *favorite* color, I will not be repurchasing when I run out of cartridges.

  1. My cousin’s uncle works for Gillette and he tells us not to use Gillette Venus to shave legs with cause they’re not that great, so I bought the Gillette Fushion (for men) to shave my legs with. Even though its for men its a lot better than Venus in my opinion and its grip is really good. Too bad the blades cost a ton.
