Gillette Venus Swirl Shaver: A quick review

Gillette Venus Swirl Shaver and Venus Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shave gel: A quick review

What is it: An innovative new women's razor featuring a flex ball that allows the razor to move in multiple directions for a smooth, quick shave.

Beauty bonus: A micro-fine comb guides hair toward the blade ensuring fewer missed hairs.

Beauty bummer: For delicate areas, the profile of this razor is a bit big.

Overall: Just in time for bikini season, this combo is sure to get you beach-ready!

The shave gel is very luxurious, lathering to a rich, moisturizing foam. It leaves skin feeling smooth and sun-dress ready.

We also tried the shaver without the shave gel and were pleased with the amount of serum included on the razor head — no excuse for dry shaving and subsequent razor burn here!

Would recommend? Yes, for legs and underarms —but maybe not for smaller bikini-area work.
Price: Approximately $4.99 (shave gel) and $15 (razor and refill)
Where to buy: Mass retailers nationwide
