My Venus Razor has lasted me quite a while, and I've never had any problems with it. The refill cartridges are readily available, and I really like the way they are made. There are three blades with cushioning for a comfortable shave, and the head pivots so that you can more easily shave contoured areas. There is also a blue strip of aloe and Vitamin E to help keep your skin healthy. The color of the strip fades when it is no longer working. The Venus is a very easy to hold razor, which I especially appreciate when I am in the shower. It has always given me a very nice, close shave, and my skin feels appealingly smooth after I've used it.
I have no reason to look for any other razor. I've been using the Venus right along and will continue to do so.
