I had been eyeing this Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace mini razor since it appeared on Target shelves while I was browsing the beauty aisles a few weeks back. I knew I wanted to try it, but since I didn’t have immediate need of it, I put it on my mental list (as well as on my Paperless app’s Must-Buy list).
Lo and behold, a week later I took an Influenster survey to see if I qualified for a *trial run of it and ended up with a little package in the mail. I was so excited, because I had plans to get it anyway for an upcoming trip to Seattle and Portland. I needed something portable, small, lightweight – this Venus Snap razor with five blades fit the bill perfectly.
My first time using it was when I didn’t shave that morning and needed to go for a run after work. The Wisconsin weather finally kicked up to summer temperatures and shorts were in order. This razor was a quick solution and the perfect time to test it. The small, easy-to-hold design made quick work of guiding the blades and I was able to have smooth legs in very little time. The five blades allowed for me to run over my skin only once – which is saying a lot, since I have thick leg hair. It dried quickly, especially because the handy little case it comes with has holes on the bottom for air circulation.
What a perfect little package to have. I am so excited Influenster gave me a chance to try this; I had full intentions of buying it regardless of the program’s compliments, but the opportunity to receive it really added to the whole positive experience. This was a well-designed product, so convenient and great for any person who needs it for travel, the gym bag, the beach bag (in case you missed a spot!) or just to save space in your own private bathroom. I’ll be sure to make use of the coupon provided in the box for replacement blades. This little beauty tool is a must-have for any woman.
