Gillette Venus Razor For Women Review + An ode to breaking stereotypes!
At every step of the life, for every decision you ever have to make, life gives you two options. You choose either this “or” that depending upon the situation and many a times when we look back at those decisions we regret thinking that it would have been better if I had chosen “this” instead of “that”. Isn’t it true? Well, I want to say *NO*! Why do we have to choose this “OR” that? Why can’t we do both – this “AND” that? Isn’t it better to choose #AND rather than #OR? Atleast we won’t feel any regret in the future for the decisions we made in the past.
This very inspiration of choosing #AND & eliminating “OR” comes from this motivational video I recently watched Gillette Venus: #UseYourAnd. It made me think about my past where I had to be something or had to do something which was expected out of me by people around me. Like the time when I got married really early in my life, which made me choose between my Masters Degree or getting married and I chose the latter one. Why didn’t I do choose #AND? Why didn’t I get married #AND continued with my studies simultaneously. Now, that I look back I realize that it was possible to choose #AND; my family especially my husband would have been supportive. This is just one of the many instances, imagine how many times we are faced with the question of “OR” & “AND”. Girls, go ahead & get rid of these labels and #UseYourAnd!
You can be a working woman #AND a great mother,a shopaholic #AND an altruistic person, a doctor #AND a dancer, a pretty girl #AND a nerd. Its high time we break the stereotypes set upon us by the society and let them know that there is much more to a woman that just one aspect of her life. I loved the concept of the #UseYourAND campaign by Gillette & I am so glad to be a part of this Gillette Venus Campaign.

I was also excited to use the Gillette Venus Razor for Women! Honestly speaking, I have always tried to avoid using a razor on my skin for obvious reasons of bumpy ingrown hair that feels harsh. Besides, the skin feels rough & dry, hair grows back sooner, ending up with hair growing in all different directions which makes life so much more difficult if you decide to wax after a few days. But, ever since I have started using the Gillette Venus Razor, I admit I will have to take half of these things back.
Price: Rs 199
Can be bought online at Flipkart & Amazon
Gillette Venus Women’s Razor has this simple looking translucent blue body with a no – slip grip handle, a saviour while using the razor in the shower as it does not slip from hands preventing accidental cuts. It has a 3 blade technology which is cushioned at the edges to give close shave in one stroke – it’s real quick. Though it’s a razor & does not cut the hair from the roots, it is highly efficient when it comes to ordinary razors leaving behind disgusting sight of ingrown hairs. Gross! Gillette Venus Razor gives a smooth & satin finish.
As far as the results are concerned, I felt the need to re-shave after a week, though the re-growth was really tiny and I could have delayed the process of shaving by another week but that insightful hair bothered me a bit. Another cool thing about this product is that it comes with an indicator which tells whether the blade is optimal to use further or you need to change it. I have used it twice till now and I think the blade will work a few more times. Gillette also recommends using it with their Satin Care Shave Gel but I use it wet with my shower gel and it works just fine.
You can also checkout Gillette Venus’ App which will answer all your queries & concerns regarding shaving.

HBM Recommendation: Gillette Venus Razor For Women is great for emergencies when you just don’t have time to go to a parlour for regular waxing or for those who feel lazy & are tired of going through the waxing pain. In my opinion, this might not replace the results of actual waxing for many but are great is perfect for times when you have to get rid of bodily hair and just don’t have time to make it for waxing.
