Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace (Travel Razor)

Summer, summer, summer. Wow I can't wait. I can't wait to hit the beach and be outside after being in for so long studying. I've been plotting for some time about the things I want to do this summer and I just can't wait to walk out from my last exam on Friday.

When you hear about summer, what's the first thing that comes to mind? For me it's the beach, and with the beach comes bikinis, and with bikinis you've just got to have your legs looking on point.

Something that I've been testing out for a little while now is this Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace* travel-sized razor.

One of the things that I like about this travel-sized razor, it that it's travel-sized. With the case and everything it fits into my palm and the razor itself it the size as a bottle of nail polish, which means that I can take it anywhere with me; in my handbag, school bag, beach bag. I could put it anywhere I could put my phone really, except for in my pockets though - that would just be weird.

I don't have to use shaving cream when I'm using this. All I have to do is wet my skin before I use this and I'm good to go. Remember though, wet your skin first, don't let those adds fool you with those people that are seemingly shaving there legs right on the spot. Wet your skin. The water acts as a kind of lubricant that lets the blue band framing the razor glide over the skin.

In my experience using this razor, it has left my skin feeling soft and smooth. It manages to give such a close shave. Never have I ever had such a great outcome with a regular razor from the drugstore, yeah this is definitely a bit more costly than a drugstore brand razor, but I guess you get what you pay for. The squishy, pink circle thing is what makes that short handle so easy to deal with. It gives me a comfortable grip on the razor. 

The blades of this are replaceable and are the exact same as the normal sized Venus Embrace razors so when ever I need a refill I wont have to go around looking for a special sized cartridge, I could just use the ones that are already on the market.

The little blue compact that houses the razor features vents to keep the razor fresh after each use; the razor also snaps into place inside.

Overall with the experience that I've had with this razor, I would definitely say that this will be something that I'll continue to use, even after summer, but I'll leave it more for travel purposes I think. I'd definitely recommend it.

I haven't been to the beach in ages and I miss it, I've planned for this summer to be one packed full of visits to the beach so definitely lookout for some lifestyle and summer themed post. 

T'is all, summer here I come!

Bye everyone and I'll talk to you in the next post.
