    I typically use the original Venus Embrace Razor and refills which I love. This razor does provide the same smooth results as the original Venus razors, however, I found that the Olay Moisturizing strip tended to kind of dull the blades a bit quicker than normal. Having the moisturizing strips on the razor provided for a much quicker shave since you don't have to mess around with shave creams or gels so this would be perfect for travel.

    I love this razor and how smooth it leaves my legs without nicks and cuts. But it's useless after about 3 or 4 shaves, the moisturizing strips completely dissolve. I had to buy the Oil of Olay shave gel to get more use of out each razor, so I might as well save money and buy the less expensive razor and the shave gel. Too pricey not to last!!!

      I gotten the Gillette razor w/refills & LOVE it! I only have to shave my legs or underarms about once every 5 days because it shaves so close. The one thing I love about it is, you can wet your legs down with water and just shave. It has built in soap & Olay that just makes them feel so soft afterwards. I give this item 4 stars and will keep using it. Every girl needs to have one of these.

          I was only able to shave every 3 or 4 days before I used this razor. I would have razor rash BAD. Not anymore. Every other day and I am good!

              Comments about Gillette Venus & Olay Razor with Cartridge, 1 ea:

              this razor is quite expensive given how ineffective it is. the first shave with a new blade is OK -- the product gives a relatively smooth shave (although not noticeably better than other razors i've used). however, the moisturizing bars dissolve so quickly that, by the second or third use, you would really need a shaving cream to be comfortable. so, if the biggest benefit of this razor is that it can be used without a shaving cream, it fails. i'd rather buy a less expensive razor (like schick hydro silk) and use shaving cream than pay more for a razor that requires more frequent blade changes.

                  I love the Venus razors and blades so was excited to give this one a try. This one was disappointment.

                  It says it creates a light lather and you don't need shaving cream. The result was in some strokes of the leg it was fine and the next would be like dry shaving. I ended up with razor burn on my lower legs.

                  I used it the next time with shaving gel and it was acceptable but certainly not worth paying extra for. I'll be going back to my regular Venus blades.

                    I liked the razor but because of the price I would save it for travel.....as I have always used liquid soap and so I don't need the extra cost associated with the moisture bars. I do appreicate that all venus cartridges fit all the venus razors as I have a couple different razors.

                      This is a great shaver. I really enjoy not having to use shaving cream. You get a close shave and no nics the one thing that I didn't like was how quick the Olay strips were used up. I think that the shaver last longer than the moisture strips. I would use again.

                          I was so skeptical! I go through a ton of shaving gel when I shave my legs. I didn't believe you could shave them without any additional products. But it really works. A smooth shave with no shave cream or gel. Kind of amazing!
