*Gillette Venus Swirl Razor & Gillette Venus Violet Swirl Shaving Gel - #ChooseToSmooth | Review

Gillette Venus Swirl Flexiball Razor

Gillette Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl Shaving Gel

I was so excited to receive this razor and gel from Influenster! I've been wanting to try them for a long time!

This is my first 2-in-1 review so let's start with the razor.

Gillette Venus Swirl Flexiball Razor

"4 blades for a longer-lasting shave and flexiball that contours to your body for virtually no missed hairs. The Venus Swirl head features 4 of our Thinnest & Sharpest Blade, Lubrastrip for glide and a Ribbon of Moisture surround the blades for glide. The handle has a Flexi-Ball that pivots to your body and takes any Venus Refill fits Venus handles." - Gillette Product info

I've seen this razor everywhere. I always use the 3-4 use disposable razors so I've been wanting to try something that has more uses. I've heard that this razor is a better shave and had it on my list to try. So Influenster sent me this razor in the new Glam VoxBox I was so excited to try it!

My legs were defiantly smoother with this razor. I was so happy with it! The hair grew back kind of fast though. I felt stubble in a few hours. The razor is great and my legs felt smoother and softer than other disposable razors but at the same time the hair grew back faster than other razors I've used.

I really loved the moisture bar around the razor. It made shaving with just water really easy. Though the cream bar runs out a lot fast than the razor dulls down so you end up with no moisture bar after about 6-7 shaves. But the razor can still do an wonderful job with some shaving cream or soap.

Gillette Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl Shaving Gel

With 5X more moisturizers then our previous gels, Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shave gel, helps protect skin against moisture loss while shaving. Venus' most advanced shave gel formula for a flawless shave, every time you shave. Remarkable coverage helps prevent missed spots. The ultra-creamy formula helps protect against nicks, redness and feel of razor burn." - Gillette Product Info

I shaved one leg with only the razor and one leg with the gel and the razor. Both legs were softer than they were with other razors but the one with the gel was softer! The hair on the leg with the gel also grew back slower.  My right leg, the leg without the gel, had noticeable hair growth within the same day. The left leg didn't have hair growth until late the next day. My hair usually takes a day or two to grow back so the gel didn't extend my growth time but my legs were super soft with this gel.

I love that the gel foamed up when you rubbed it in your hands. Foam is my preferred shaving aid. I just find the foam is easier to get full coverage and a smoother glide. I haven't had any razor burns using this gel. The gel is really moisturising and helps get a really close shave and overall I loved it.

Overall I was really happy with this duo. I've definitely adopted this as my new shaving method. I'm so happy Influenster sent this to me! I'm excited that I won't be tossing out so much plastic now. These last longer than the 10 pack of throw away razors and I'm only tossing out the heads.

Have you guys tried this razor or shaving gel? What did you think?

Thanks for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed it!
