I love this razor. Of course I don't like shaving, I don't think anyone does, and it's not the best method of hair removal but for a razor this one is great. First off, this is the only razor that I have ever used that NEVER cuts me, no matter how rushed I am. It doesn't really give me razor burn either like other razors have. It will start to drag a bit when it needs replaced, really that is the only way that I know it needs to be replaced because it lasts for quite a long time. The downfall? Its super expensive! I paid $17 for a 4 pack of replacement blades. I will say though, that all of the quality blades seem to be pricey and I will never get another cheap razor and slice up my legs. They last forever too, so the price isn't even really that bad. I have tried the disposable Venus Embrace and also the Sensitive skin versions of this razor and neither work as good as the original. The original is the only one I will swear by. I will say that you need to hang the razor up with the wall mount that it comes with. I have ruined brand new razors before by laying it blades down on the shelf in the shower. If you do this the moisture strip swells up with water and then dries that way. Then the strip is raised up so much that the blades can no longer get close enough to your skin, so make sure you mount it on the wall to dry between uses!! I would love to get lazer hair removal or something more permanent but as far as shaving goes, I don't think you are going to get any better than this!

Although it makes my skin very smooth, it makes my legs insanely itchy after I get out of the shower. I get itchy red bumps after using this which has never happened with another Venus razor before. I wish this worked for me because it does work well, however it's not worth how itchy and painful my legs feel after I shower.

Best disposable razor.The other Gillette razors such as the spa razor, come with gel strips that shrink and then fall off within 4-5 shaves!This razor doesn't have those gel attachments instead it has thin gel on the razor that never falls off. So this razor head really lasts a long time, the longest I've experienced from a disposable razor head. It leaves a clean soft and smooth shave, rarely leaves cuts, and gives a sleek feel. This is the only razor I use and I've continued to repurchase it many times since originally buying it.

This razor lasts forever! Most amazing disposable I have ever used. I've heard it helps if you make sure it can dry out between uses. It's pricier than most other disposables, but it's totally worth it!

I've been using original 3 blade venus razors for years.So i decided to give this razor a try as i thought this one maybe better than the original one.my theory was : extra blades = extra close shaving so i could save at least one day without shaving .but i was wrong.it didn't help to hairs growing back slower . in fact i get stubble quicker than usual. I can't believe how 5 blade razor can leave so much stubble.5 blade is too much for my skin btw. it didn't give me nasty cuts or nicks but gave me razor rash and itchy feeling.It is also ridiculously pricey.i would never buy again.i'll stick to my old and trusted originals,

Once you try these all other razors pale in comparison. These razors give me the closet shave I've ever had. Every time I try another razor to save money I come back to these. Incredible!!

My daughter told me about this and I thought I'd give it a try considering I shave daily or almost daily and have never been that impressed with any razor.well I am blown away by the smoothness of this razor. It glides over the skin and it is like you have the skin of a baby afterwards. I will never buy another razor..the selection of razors can be overwhelming in the store...even when viewing what you think is the same company or just the name Venus. I almostpicked up the wrong one but when I remembered to look for the words "5 blades" , I easily found the right one.I can't recommend this razor enough.

This is the best of all of the Venus razors. It is also, by far, the most comfortable razor to use as far as the way it fits in my hand. As much as I do love this razor...very close shave, no irritation, etc...the last box of cartridges I purchased must have been defective. I've used this razor for years and normally one cartridge gives me three to four weeks of use, but three of the four cartridges in the new package came apart after just one use. The turquoise bit around the blade separated and created a gap between my skin and the blade, so it left me stubbly. Gillette did send me a voucher for a free box, which I used and got the same ones as they have always been my favorite. I hope the faulty box was just a fluke because I want to continue using them, but at $18.00 for a box of four, if it happens again I won't buy any more.

These razors would be fine for getting the job done, except for the HORRIBLE, itchy bumps they gave me. I think it must be an allergic reaction to the moisturizing strips, which I have never experienced with any other product before. I experienced insanely itchy, red bumps on my legs and underarms which I finally determined was due to these razors. Will NOT be repurchasing.

It was only $6.98 at Walmart so I didn't pass it up. I'm glad I bought it! Gives me a very clean shave with no bumps, cuts, nothing! I use the sensitive ones that claim to have a touch of Aloe. Adore them!
