Having tried and been disappointed with the Schick Intuition, I decided to take a stab at using the Gillette Venus Breeze.

I decided to give the Gillette Venus Breeze a try because unlike the awkward bulky handle and soap topper of the Schick Intuition, the Venus Breeze has a nice standard handle that also has a non-slip grip. The Venus Breeze also has two pads of lotiony soap, one on either side of the razor, that Gillette calls shave gel bars. These shave gel bars are not actually attached to the razor, but rather glide onto the skin before and after the razor, so that they do not interfere with the closeness of the shave. The shave gel bars are also not bulky and do allow for the razor to fit into a standard razor holder on a shower rack.

While the set up of the Venus Breeze worked very well the first couple of times I used it, the shave gel bar at the top of the razor fell off on the 3rd or 4th use. Upon speaking with a couple of friends of mine who had also tried this model razor, I found that the same thing happened to them.

In conclusion, I found that the Gillette Venus Breeze was not cost efficient as the extra money that was spent for the shave gel bars could not be fully taken advantage of. It is better to use a plain razor and a separate shave cream or soap and lotion.
