On the fence.. I think i might prefer Gillette Fusion (men's) because i feel it gives a closer shave. I dunno, lately it seems as though my legs aren't perfectly smooth using this, but i remember that they felt like silk with Gillette Fusion. I think it's overall good, i just prefer the men's.

Pretty decent razor. Gets the job done but honestly it's the exact same as those gillette daisy pink one blade razors, it just has more blades and a bigger razor head.

I liked it until I switched my Venus heads to the original three-blade cartridges. Wow, what a difference. A much closer, smoother and more gentle shave, and no more having to deal with such a massive-sized cartridge. Won't buy these again.

I don't like this, the regular Venus is my favorite razor and I'd give that one 5 lippies and a buy again and again and again! but this one sadly wasn't as good as its sister. I find that the strip that surround the blades bothers me and doesn't allow a really close shave, so I have to swipe the razor a lot to get rid of all the hairs and still my legs are not soft.. and it's more expensive than regular Venus... never again!

I have been cursed with having to shave my legs everyday in order to prevent stubble and keep them smooth. My hair does not grow finely, but rather thick. With the average razor(even 4 blades) I have to definitely stick to this rule. However,with the Venus Embrace I get a much closer shave and can bend the rules a little. I feel I shave so much faster with the Embrace because of the way the head moves. The razor lasts a good amount of time before it gets dull.
I agree with the other review that states you do need to be careful not to press so hard because these are very good blades. I have never cut myself with Venus Embrace, but I could imagine someone who is used to the 2 blade razors cutting themselves with this if not careful.
I have to say this is the best I have tried so far and that is a compliment from someone that shaves their legs all the time. I have tried all the cheapies, schick quattro, and other venus razors. l ♥this one the most.
The only drawback for me is the price..It's pretty expensive although I can justify the price because of my hair type. If you don't grow thick hair, and don't normally have to shave often you can get away with something less $$.
I would repurchase.

I have used Venus (the org.) since 2004 and haven't purchased any of the newer versions - so I figured it was time to see if there was anything new that I was missing out on.
First of all, my shaving routine: I have to shave daily, I am fair skinned with nauturally dark hair. My legs tend to show regrowth after 8 hours and I can see it even before then whether I can feel it or not. I have the org. Venus which has three blades and before this I could never get a close and smooth shave without hurting myself.
In walks Venus Embrace. First impression - bulky. But, I remained hopeful that I could tell the difference with five blades. I honestly can not tell the difference. Three blades or five I get the same shave:( My skin felt fine, the razor did not irritate me at all. Also, the buffer around the razor made shaving feel really comfortable and the razor glides across my skin.
Bottom line: Smooth, comfortable shave without irritation. However, not noticeably different from the org. Venus razor with three blades. I get the same shave regardless. I would not repurchase - I know it gets no love but BIC Soleil is the best razor I have ever tried.

I bought the disposable ones and they work great. Only cut myself twice and there was not much irritation

I didn't like this razor, I think 5 blades were too much for my skin. Everytime I shaved my legs or underarms with it, there was always a slight afterburn and irritation. Yes that was with a shaving gel sitting on my legs for a few minutes prior to shaving. I would never buy the cartridges again. I prefer the Venus Spa Breeze.

Finally a razor that I don't cut my legs or get razor bumps with. It's too big to get close enough for a good shave on my underarms/bikini so I use a mens refill on one of these handles for that, and this refill on another handle for my legs. I only go through one refill a week so the price isn't that bad. I'm only giving it a 4 because I can't use it for my underarms/bikini.

Love it! Kinda pricey, so I usually just get a whole new kit instead of buying refill cartridges. I have repurchased and will continue to do so. Been using the Venus line since it came out. Love how it is light weight too. Only drawback is the head of the razor is a little big, so its a bit difficult to shave certain areas.
