    Comments about Gillette Venus & Olay Cartridge 3 Ct:

    I absolutely love the Venus & Olay shave cartridge, but a three pack of refills runs around $20 and if I'm lucky, I get two shaves from each cartridge BEFORE THE BOTTOM "MOISTURIZING/SOAP" bar becomes so disintegrated or just falls off that it works out to a about $3.30 PER SHAVE (2 shaves per cartridge with three cartridges in the box). That is positively insane and cost unfeasible. I even wrote to Gillette to complain and received a response letting me know that "no one else had complained" and "products undergo rigorous tests to ensure endurance and quality." I don't think that could possibly be true for this product. I still buy the cartridges but I now save them for "special occasions." Four of my friends use this particular blade and also have the same issue with the bottom bar falling off. I keep my razor out of the shower to avoid letting water/steam affect it as I shower, but it makes no difference as the bottom bar STILL falls off within a couple of shaves. For reference, my leg hair is course and does grow in about what feels like a thousand different directions, but I'm not heavy-handed with my razor. I also shave my bikini and underarm areas, both on which, I've had laser hair removal. Overall, I'm not shaving a ton each time I DO shave so why does this product not hold up? It's so frustrating. I just wish Gillette would own the problem and fix it!

          Razor goes on handle easily. Glides easily. The Olay is the best razor, yet! Love razor maneuverability. Doesn't leave any 'sign' you shaved. Smooth & silky skin. It's great b/c I don't knick ankles & knees, anymore.
