For those wondering what Influenster is, it's [essentially] a hub for beauty and product lovers everywhere to review the items they need in their lives. The most Influential get exclusive access to what's called a VoxBox, wherein you get a box in the mail with product inside of it that the company has sent out for honest and open reviews. You can unlock Brand Badges while doing VoxBoxes, and you can unlock Life Badges based on YOUR personal interests in life. It helps you see others who enjoy what you do, and open you to products you might not otherwise have found, while simultaneously letting you see what people like YOU really think of it! It's a wonderful place, really, and while some may complain about singular-product boxes: I for one can't. I enjoy new products, and finding out what I do or do not like, and sharing my thoughts with others. :)
That being said, My latest VoxBox [as the title informs] was from Venus/Gillette. They've marketed a razor for "in a snap" use, for the go-go-go ladies [...and men? Any men out there?] and have cleverly called it "The Venus Snap" [Ha.. haha... see what they did there? Venus SNAP? As in the venus fly trap that snaps shut? .... Don't judge. Those buggers are adorable.]
I haven't had much time recently to really enjoy a good hot bath, so I have put off testing this out. Until now. And by god, it was worth it!
First, the packaging has the razor inside a hard blue plastic clamshell. The razor itself is securely snapped into position, and there are holes in the bottom for water and air to pass in/out of. It's compact, and quite discreet should you not want anyone to know your secret to stubble-banishment.
Second, the razor itself is small, fitting within the palm of your hand, though uses a standard-sized blade head. These specifically came with Venus Embrace attached. The handle is circular, with a soft and flexible rubber pad in the center to stabilize. It was this circular shape that I found was most impressive! I didn't anticipate how much this would make shaving with either hand, and in harder to reach areas, EASIER!
Truly, genuinely, it did though! It bent over the curve of my knee, and behind, and around ankles [not to mention the underarms! DREAM-like!!] like a figure skater in the olympics. It was AWESOME.
Thirdly, the choice in blade head was perfect. So smooth, it really doesn't need anything more than a little wetting to work [Just like its advertised!]. There was a coupon for some more of these heads and you can bet I will be using it!
Please note: I DID receive this for free, in exchange for testing and reviewing the product. Venus/Gillette and Influenster have in no way endorsed my post, nor have they altered anything I have said about the product. I do swear my review is my own, and I have been honest to the best of my ability. :)
