Venus Swirl Razor-is it really that great?

This post contains a product that was sent for review.  My opinion is my own and does not change regardless of whether product was sent or I forked over my own hard earned $$$

I’ve been a razor girl since I was about 15-so yes, over 20 years! I’ve tried a lot of razors over those 20+ years.  My main ‘hang up’ is that the refill cartridges can be pricey….and that the razors aren’t that great to begin with.

I decided I would gauge the effectiveness of the Swirl against a current ‘favored’ razor , the Dorco Shai.  Now, the Dorco does NOT have a Flexiball but other than that, they are fairly similar, take a look:

Dorco Shai:

Dorco Shai:

4 blades with a pivot head.  The Dorco Shai has a lubricating strip with chamomile and olive oil and rubber grip handle.

Venus Swirl:

5 blades, and moisture glade serum, as well as a microfine comb.  Also has Flexiball and rubber grip handle.

Areas tested:

Armpits, lower leg, upper leg.  Shai was used on Right side, Swirl used on the left.  I used Gillette Shave Gel for women in the scent ‘Lavendar Kiss’ on both sides.

Results:

Overall, I’ll say that both razors did a great job removing hair. I’m not showing ‘after’ results, you will have to take my word for it!!!  I will say that for areas like my armpit and knees, I did prefer the Swirl as I felt it really DID glide and flex over the curves.  Both of my legs were equally smooth but I felt better about shaving all areas with the Swirl-again, because of the flex technology.  Design-wise the Swirl wins for sure!

FYI:

The Venus Swirl will be available on February 9th at Walmart in-store and online at Walmart.ca.  Want to chat about this razor?  How about @GilletteVenus
