Gillette Venus Proskin Sensitive Razor Review


Hi guys!

I hope you’re all well and are having a good week! I have no school this week so I’m thoroughly enjoying being off and having a less than productive week, haha, but it’s not all been a waste so far because the girls and I have organised our girls holiday, yay! Now we just need to get through the next few months and get our exams out of the way and we’re there!

Today I’m sharing a slightly different product review with you, rather than makeup I’m going to be focusing on a different type of beauty product, razors. As I mentioned before I have very sensitive skin and suffer from eczema on my arms and legs which can make finding products that work well for my skin more difficult. In the next week I will be sharing my favourite skin products with you so keep an eye out!

So I bought the Gillette Venus Proskin Sensitive razor before Christmas and I really like this product. It’s really is good for sensitive skin, because my legs are so sensitive I have found that the majority of razors I’ve tried cause my legs to break out in a really bad rash and become super irritated, but I haven’t had this problem with this razor! While my legs can still become quite irritated if I rush shaving, using this razor really has prevented this and as long as I take the time to shave properly I have no irritation!


This razor also has 5 blades which makes for a lovely close shave. The 5 blades means that you’re able to shave even the shortest hairs which leaves your legs feeling so smooth. The head of the razor moves to follow the shape of your leg which makes shaving around your knees so much easier, this is another huge plus. The extra moisture strip also allows for a smoother shave and helps to prevent irritation.


Another great feature this razor as is the handle, it has a cushioned effect which makes the razor much easier and more comfortable to hold.

The only downside to the product is the price! It’s pretty pricey at £10.50 for the handle and cartridge and then £18.99 for 6 refills, this is more than I would ideally like to spend on a razor but I do feel it’s worth it for me because my skin has been so much better after shaving since using this product.

Overall I would definitely recommend this product, it’s the best razor I’ve tried and makes shaving a much more pleasant experience for me because of the reduced irritation. Great product!
