Most Helpful Positive Review Close Shave
I used Gillette Venus for Hair and Skin, Women's Razor Handle A few times now and I really like it. It gives a very close shave without the razor burn. It's easy to hold and not slippery. It comes with 2 additional blade refills. I am excited to bring this on my next vacation!
Most Helpful Critical Review Was expecting more
I LOVED how this product is sturdy, it seems very well built and was a step up from my traditional disposable razor and I was excited to try something new. It glides so well! I felt smoother than a baby's bottom. However, the next day is where the issue was. I don't normally break out in razor burn but my bikini line was ridden with razor burn. I really liked this product but not after that happened. This is an unfortunate no from me because I had high hopes.

Mandymandy from Phoenix
I have the most sensitive skin. Shaving or waxing my legs is always a nightmare. I'm left with red irritated skin no matter what I use or how careful I am. I'm not sure what kind of magic this razor is made of, but I shaved my legs, underarms and the bikini area with no irritation! 10/10 recommend!
MissPyggy from South of Indy
I have used this razor a couple of times. It gives a close shave without nicks or major razor burn. I appreciate the Irritation Defense Bar helps keep the razor burn at a minimum and the precision trimmer helps get into those stubborn areas. Nice handle and easy to hold/work with.
Vikki from Modesto, Ca
I just love my Gillette Venus razor. It leaves my skin in my intimate area so smooth & soft after shaving. I like how it glides across my skin without tugging my hair down there. I also like how there's like a little trimmer on top of the blade, with a guard over it so you don't have to worry about nicking yourself. What I really loved about this Venus is that I didn't get razor bumps or any kind of irritation after shaving. Which was great since my skin tends to get irritated after grooming. This is my go to razor for now on that's for sure.
No burns or bumps
Kenny123 from Dover foxcroft maine
I have had this razor for almost a month now. This razor gives me the closest shave i have ever has. The best part about it is the when using it i can just have warm water to shave with and i have had no burns or bumps and no ingrown hairs.
Loved this razor.
Lizann87 from Jacksonville, NC
The Gillette Venus for Hair and skin, Women's Razor handle + 2 blade refills is an amazing razor. I'll love how the razor itself has two different places on it. One for your legs and underarms and wherever else you shave. And then one razor on the top to shave the the other area. Not as sharp as I thought it would be but it's still an amazing razor. Better than any other razor I have used!!
AshleeH from Allen Park, MI
I LOVE this razor! It is so smooth flowing across your skin. I wasn't left with any horrible razor burn. The handle is so easy to hold on to and fits comfortably in my hand. It makes it so much easier to shave with a comfortable handle.
Hike82 from Indiana
I absolutely love Gillette Venus for hair. It works really good, sturdy, close shave. Made my skin soft . Love the trimmer tool on back of razor for hard to reach places. Works good on all areas . I will buy it.
Smooth, clean shave!
Muhkayluh96 from Springfield, MO
I love this razor. I struggle to shave the area it's for, but this is the smoothest, cleanest shave I've ever had. I love the heavy handle and the nice metal construction of it. I'll be buying this many times. I didn't have any nics or cuts or anything it was so easy and smooth. I think this is what I needed in my life!
Out with the old in with the new
Ericav1111 from Alma, KS
Gillette Venus for Hair and Skin is the BEST razor I've tried!! This razor literally just glides right across your skin and takes all the hair with it. Very close shave and left skin silky smooth. It left my skin so soft days after using. I also get razor burn very easily. This razor didn't give me ANY razor burn. Definitely throwing out all my old razors and switching to this. I highly recommend giving this razor a try!!
Good, but not great
Tina F from Maryland
I've used this 3 times in a week before writing this review and I have decided that it is definitely better than a regular razor but it is (sadly) not the miracle cure I was looking for. I have dark, coarse hair that hates being shaved and I am plagued by razor bumps. Normally, once all my razor bumps are gone I can shave once, have one great day and then the next day it is razor bump city, and when the hair starts growing back and I keep shaving it the problem just builds and builds. With this razor, I was able to shave 2 days in a row without a massive problem. I had a few little bumps but they were definitely less than usual. The downfall is that whatever is keeping my skin from being irritated also doesn't allow for a really close shave. I definitely will keep this guy around because it is a strong improvement over my regular razor, but I won't be screaming about it on city corners. As the title says: good, not great.

This Gillette Venus razor for the bikini area is a dream come true. Never, ever have I been able to shave or trim my bikini area without getting razor bumps, redness, skin irritation and itching. Until now!! I was absolutely elated that I got such a clean shave with none of the awful after effects. I highly recommend this razor/trimmer.
Mal86 from Groton,SD
I have used this razor for a couple weeks now and I definitely notice less irritation than I have with other razors. It glides and turns easy making it nice to use in sensitive areas! Gets you a nice clean shave with no stubble I would recommend.
Ary83 from New Jersey
I usually take my husbands razors because I get a smoother shave with his razors. I was pleasantly surprised when I used this razor and I got a silky smooth shave all over! I no longer have to use my hubby's razors! I'm very happy with it and I'll continue to buy these razors.
Jinus97 from undisclosed
This product is really awesome. I used to get razor bumps or in grown hairs after shaving because of the razors I used. I didn't experience a lot of irritation or redness after using this product. Would recommend!
Absolutely love this!
Phoenix from undisclosed
I'm so glad I found this! This razor is so convenient to use, and I haven't experienced any irritation. I absolutely love the trimmer on the edge of the razor head. I'd never seen anything like it, and it works so well. The handle is of nice quality, has a good weight to it, and seems like it will last a long time.
kpenny from Washington
I bought this razor for the two things it was meant for clearly and let me tell you I love the way it makes my skin feel so smooth I would recommend this to anyone who uses a razor if you like your skin feels nice and smooth they you wanna try this out
Not for me
Shelby77 from Michigan
I tried the Gillette Venus for Hair and Skin, Women's Razor Handle + 2 Blade Refills because I figured it would be better for more sensitive area but it was not for me. Maybe with thinner hair types it would work best. I felt like it had 2 uses out of it before it irritated my skin.
It worked great
Aveh915 from Denver, Co
The Gillette Venus Razor worked very well. I had a hard time using at first just because it was like getting caught but once I figured out how to use it, it was great. I would really recommend using this again.
Best Razor Ever
dawny624 from undisclosed
Ladies! This is a MUST have. Let's just say that I have been neglecting my lady parts since the pandemic. It was crazy down there! Then I had the chance to try this razor free for my honest opinion. Just wow! There was absolutely no pulling or pinching or cutting! It Glided smoothly and left it so smooth and soft (Disclaimer: I did trim a little before shaving but I am not even sure that was necessary). The razor comes with 2 blades. I am in shock how good this razor is, no other razor, not even a mans has worked this well. This is one razor that is now on my shopping list.
Nice option for women!
sueQ02 from New Jersey
I didn't know that this was a choice for my care and grooming but it is nice to have this option. If dealing with ingrown hairs or razor burn, this razor can be helpful. It is designed to remove the hair while remaining slightly away from your skin. You can get a closer shave if you choose but it is just that, a choice! I found this razor to work well for preparing to get in a bathing suit!
Cash43t from Valley City, Ohio
I bought this a month ago and I am so pleased with it. This has the closest shave to my delicate areas that I've ever had. It does not cut me or cause irritation. It is very easy to handle. I would definitely recommend this product.
Starhawk from Austin
I am really enjoying my new Venus razor! It gives me an incredibly smooth shave in all the areas I shave. And the best part is no skin irritation in any of those areas! I am only giving this 4 stars because I had a hard time getting a good grip on the handle due to the soap I use. I love the sturdy handle, the grip was just a bit tough.
Hlane1977 from Pickerington, Ohio
This is by far the best razor I have ever used! My skin honestly feels like silk after I use it! I love the heavy handle, it makes it easy to navigate curves without it slipping and causing me to knick myself, which I prone to do. I haven't cut myself once with this razor, which for me is a record! The way the head moves it makes it easy to get into areas that I sometimes struggle with getting smooth such as the bikini area. I've never been brand or type specific with my razor choices before because I assumed they were all pretty much the same but I was definitely wrong. This is my new go to razor as the shave is far superior than with any other razor I've tried before.
Frankie20 from Williamsburg Kentucky
I absolutely love this razor. It shaves super close and leaves skin smooth with the irritation bar on it and that is so awesome.It glides smoothly through your creases. It has a great stylish look. It comes with two razor tips. Definitely recommend this razor.
Madmom33 from Mo
This is the perfect size for your private areas. It is too big and not too small. The blades are strong but gengle on the skin. My only hope is that the razor cartridge refills are not ungodly expensive like others!
