I am wondering how it is possible that anyone cut themselves using this razor! I used to have the Venus Divine and thought it was the best and that gillette just keeps making new razors as a gimmick to make money, but after using the Embrace, I was shocked at how much better it really is. I do not find the size of the head awkward at all; I think it is great. My legs are the smoothest they have ever been with the least amount of effort and I have not once experienced razor burn. The colors are also very cute and brighten my day in the shower. The only bad thing is that the refills are just sooo expensive, but I guess it's that way with most razors.

This razor was okay. If this is Venus's "Closest Shave Ever!" Than I'll buy a different brand. I bet the blades are sharp enough...the head is just too big and the blades are too far in! I have VERY thin and sparse leg hair so I was very surprised. Basically, you need to press pretty hard to get a close shave. BUT I did not get any nicks or cuts, so it would be ideal for those just starting out. I prefer Schick Triple Blade disposable over this. Another thing I didn't like was that the shower caddy suction cups were really weak and I could never get the darn thing to stay up. This razor is also more expensive than others. Word of advice...get many sharp blades and small razor head for the closest shave ever!

    Comments about Gillette Venus Embrace Razor, Blue/Green, 1 ea:

    Best razor I've ever used. I used to change the blade weekly on every razor I ever used, including all of the previous Gillette models. But I can use an Embrace blade for 2-3 weeks or more, easily, and still get a close shave.

          This is the best razor that I have ever used. They are quite expensive in the store so I was very happy to get a good price on them at this online store.

            I use it in the shower and it gives you a fast and overall smooth shave every time. The blades last a long time, too.

                  Seriously, this razor is amazing, my legs have never felt softer! It doesn't even feel like you're shaving your legs with this, no cuts, my legs feel so soft. I can't describe how great it is. It is a bit on the pricey side, but it is so worth it, you will never need another razor ever again.

                  I bought this razor when it was on sale. It is a good buy and great for shaving my legs when I haven't shaved in a week. I wouldn't recommend shaving anywhere else because it is a very large razor (get my drift.) I actually have to use another razor for bikini area. It doesn't curve very well on my thighs. I would use this only if the price stays low. IF not find something else that works much better.
