Along with a Venus razor, shave gel is the secret to a smooth shave. It holds moisture in the hair, making it easier to cut, and contains lubricants which help the razor glide gently over skin. Want an even easier shave? Check out SatinCare for skin-loving shave gel in light, luscious scents.
Shaving regularly can actually improve the look and feel of skin by removing the top layer of dead skin cells. Another tip? Products that hydrate, like an after-shower moisturizer or shave gel such as SatinCare Dry Skin Formula, help skin feel silky smooth. And remember that Venus Embrace with its five individually adjusting blades has a protective ribbon of moisture for soft, pampered skin.
While there's no set rule, you should replace blades at the first sign of dullness or discomfort. For most women this is after about 5-10 shaves. Venus razors have interchangeable cartridges that fit all Venus handles, so you can even try a different type of blade on your current Venus razor.
Many of these physical (and unfashionable) discomforts are caused by slippage, whether it is your soapy hand losing grip of your razor or a slick shower ledge that causes you to lose your balance. Venus razors have a soft grip handle to help prevent nicks and cuts from happening. While shaving, remember to use vertical strokes rather than horizontal. And for balance, try putting your foot on a ledge or edge of the tub with face cloth underneath. It will help you stand your ground while shaving.
Of course you can! Just remember that underarm hair and bikini area hair grows in different directions. In those areas, try shaving from all three angles—up, down and sideways—for the ultimate smooth shave.
While there's technically nothing wrong with shaving facial hair (guys do it all the time!) most women prefer methods that allow for more control when it comes to hair removal for eyebrows and upper lip—like waxing, tweezing and depilatories.
When it comes to the task of hair removal, the options are numerous, but wet shaving is a quick and easy way to keep skin soft and beautiful.
•Waxing: Long lasting, but can be messy and leave skin irritated—ouch!
•Electric (dry) Shaving: Easy to do at home, but doesn't give an ultra-close shave, and razor maintenance is critical.
•Depilatories: Fast and easy, but tend to have an unpleasant odor and can irritate skin.
•Epilators: Stubble required—long lasting results may vary.
•Electrolysis: Permanent hair removal has a hefty price tag requiring a skilled professional.
•Wet Shaving: Inexpensive, convenient, quick and safe with a quality razor. Find the Venus razor that's right for you in our Razor Finder.
Hey bathing beauty, isn't it time to end razor burn once and for all? Here's a simple two-step solution that will work wonders: Replace your razor blade at the first sign of dullness, and hydrate skin with warm water for 2-3 minutes before applying a nourishing shave gel like SatinCare Skin Soothing Formula.
We've all done it—nicked a knee or ankle while shaving. The trick to getting those tricky spots? First, choose a high-quality razor, designed for a woman's curves—like Venus Embrace. Once you have the right tool, let these areas soak up as much shave gel as possible. Take it slowly, using short strokes, and don't put too much pressure on your razor for a smooth, ouch-free shave.
The more blades, the more hairs get cut. And of course, that means a smooth shave. Venus Embrace is the only women's shaving system to feature five blades that individually adjust to your natural curves. Want even more smoothness?
