Happy hump day! A few weeks ago, Influenster sent one of the new Venus Snap Razors (see Venus's whole line here) to review and let me tell you, it has been the perfect thing for weekends away! Memorial day weekend I was at the lake, then last weekend at the beach it was the perfect thing to have tucked away with me.
When I received it, it was such a happy mail day! (The mail lady was even jealous, she wanted one too) I had been seeing the advertisements for them for a while and to me they looked so fascinating. I couldn't figure out the little handle- originally I was thinking it would be next to impossible to use, it looks like theres next to nothing to hold onto!
For the longest time I was a huge fan of the BIC soleil disposable razors because that was all my mother ever used and they worked well for me. About a month or two ago I decided to give another razor a shot and tried my first Venus razor, the one for sensitive skin of course (thank you accutane). I ended up loving it! It sounds silly, but it almost feels like I finally upgraded to a "big girl" razor. (Does anyone else ever feel this way? I'm probably just crazy)
It's actually A LOT easier to use than you would think. The actual razor part has the typical five blades, and the lotion/soap/whatever that is rim is the same as a normal Venus razor. The handle is where it really gets interesting. Its made of some sort of rubber almost, that you can press into (with grips!) to get a tight hold on your razor while using it. And the cherry on top? It comes in a really sturdy case that has tiny holes in the bottom so your razor can drain out (meaning no mold & mildew!)
Now although I LOVED this for travel, I would not probably not use it as an everyday razor. If you are going somewhere this summer I definitely recommend you pick one up! (Trust me, you won't realize you need it until you don't have it.) #InASnap
