Love Voxbox 2012: Venus & Olay Razor Review

Hey everyone! So I was lucky enough to receive a second box of free goodies from the amazing progam Influenster! This box was called the Love Voxbox and in it were these amazing products:
Stash Herbal Tea, Ghiradelli Chocolate, Truvia Sweetener, Kiss Nail Dress Nail Art, Venus + Olay Razor
I really enjoyed testing these products and am looking forward to purchasing many of them in the future.
Anyway,  on to the review!

I was really excited to try out the new Venus+ Olay razor. I actually had just received a free sample of the new Schick Hydro razor in the mail a week earlier and was looking forward to comparing them. Here's some of the official information for the Venus + Olay razor:

Venus & Olay Razor

For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Venus’ best shaving technology works with Olay Moisture Bars, offering women best-of-both-worlds shaving and skin expertise. Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close.

Product Details
  • Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles.
  • Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required.
  • As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment

Where to Buy
A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. Packages of three replacement cartridges are available for about $14.99 - $19.49.
Venus & Olay will be available starting March 15, 2012 at food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.

While I do like the Venus + Olay razor and its moisture bars, it's not a miracle razor. My legs did not feel any more moisturized than they would with a regular razor. In fact, I found that the moisture bars seemed to only create a slimy substance that made it harder to shave. This is a good product, but I would recommend to buy it and its cartridges when they are on sale.
