Gillette Venus & Olay

I get inspired at the weirdest times to write a blog. I have an excuse: My son isn’t awake yet.  Before I brew myself a delightful cup of decaf I’d love to tell my wonderful viewers about Gillette’s newest razor.I hate my chubby, so-white-they-blind-millions-of-people legs. I don’t show off my legs. Is there anyone else out there who’s afraid of their legs as much as I am? You might be wondering why a razor be important to me then? It’s quite simple.  When I’m not covered in baby formula I think to myself if my legs have to be albino & chubby they might as well feel nice.

I have been using Gillette since high school. Gillette is the only brand of razor I have used where I don’t end up cutting my legs. I’ve always been pleased with the results I get. You may remember Gillette for their original Gillette Venus razor or for their catchy “I’m your Venus I’m your Goddess” jingle. When I got word of a new razor by Gillette I KNEW I had to try it. When I joined Influenster back in February the products in the Love VoxBox just came to the doorstop of  thousands of influensters to test.  I was sad I missed out on the opportunity to test out free products this time around. Influenster sends out voxboxs various times during the year so I hope I will eventually be selected for a voxbox. I decided from here on out any voxbox which comes out that I am not selected for I will purchase the items in the voxbox when they are available so I can review them. The Gillette Venus & Olay razor, as shown above, was one of those products in the Love VoxBox.  The Gillette Venus & Olay razor was a special preview to influensters. I had to wait until two weeks ago in my local area to purchase this razor.  If my legs could drool I am sure they were while waiting for this new product to come out.

I was very surprised at the price at my local Wal*Mart. I purchased the Gillette Venus & Olay razor for $8.47. Given this razor has 5 blades, a shower hook, and an Olay Moisture Bar I was expecting the price to be much higher. I consider the purchase of this razor a steal.

Coincidentally enough the day I purchased the Gillette Venus & Olay razor it was a day where I needed to shave. Ok. I might have lied. I waited a couple weeks to shave my legs just to try this razor out. Don’t judge my me I was trying to save my dignity. My biggest fear while shaving my legs is cutting them. Before I found Gillette my bathroom would look like a horror scene whenever I shaved my legs from all the blood I’d drip when I had a small cut. To this day I dread shaving my legs in fear of cutting myself.

I really loved the results I got from the Gillette Venus & Olay razor. I didn’t have to  go over sections of my leg multiple times to get a close shave. I am in love with how  it made my legs feel. My legs feel so good that I have been given my white legs more daylight. I am very sure they are thanking me. I didn’t have to use shaving cream while using this product – score! My legs are really silky, and smooth. I’ve been using the Gillette Venus & Olay razor consistently since I purchased it. I can tell a major difference in my legs. This razor has eliminated a good chunk of my time I use to use for putting lotion on my legs.  I shaved my legs 3 days ago and I do not feel any signs of stubble: The shave is that close.

I am very pleased with the Gillette Venus & Olay razor. I will be purchasing refill cartridges for my leg’s new best friend shortly. I need to give a shout out to Influenster. If it wasn’t for Influenster I wouldn’t have heard about the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor or actually ANY products they are sending out to test. Thank you Influenster!

If you haven’t joined Influenster yet – please do! It’s free, fun, and the products they send to test are great. They send out voxboxes (that’s the name for the box they send you full of goodies to test) to random influensters based on what badges they have and the theme of the box. You can unlock badges super easily. Have a twitter account? You can get a badge.  Are you a cat lover? There’s another badge. It’s not one of those run of the mill websites where you have to jump through 50 hoops to get a shot at testing stuff products.   Influenster is getting ready to send out invites for a special mom’s program, and a spring voxbox should be coming out late spring as well.  Don’t wait. Go ahead & sign up.  As we speak Influenster is having influenster’s test out the new Palmolive Fresh Sponge dishwashing soap. Your time waiting on deciding if you should join is time taken away from possibly being selected to test great products. I’ll be purchasing that to review sometime this week as it’s already available in stores. Check out Influenster’s Twitter or Facebook to get the latest news.

Before you go you should check out Gillette’s website if you haven’t yet to see their full range of products.
