Review: Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

Hey everyone, two posts in one day? Yup! Today I have a review of the Gillette Venus & Olay razor I received in my Influenster Love VoxBox. When I saw that this was in my box, I was thrilled. Here are my thoughts...

Claims: Moisturized skin while having a close shave
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.
 My Thoughts 
The first thing I noticed when opening this razor was the smell from the moisturizing bar. It was a refreshing and soothing fragrance of Vanilla, which I really enjoyed. Since I personally dislike shaving creams, I was happy at the convenience of not needing one because the razor came with a moisturizing bar. The razor glided with ease and since it had 5 blades, I received a very close shave. I loved how silky smooth my legs felt afterwards. Sadly I wasn't thrilled at how fast the moisturizing bars dissolved while I was shaving in the shower. By the time I finished one leg, the bars was half way gone. 
Bottom line:  Is it worth the money? Yes. Will you buy it again? Definitely! 

Rating: 4 out of 5 because of how fast the moisturizing bars dissolved in the shower.


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.

Gillette Venus & Olay Razor is now in stores and can be purchased in food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.
