This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gillette Venus. The opinions and text are all mine.
Welcome back to Blush & Camo! Today I’m so excited to partner with Gillette Venus to talk about Venus’s new subscription service Venus Direct! In this post I’ll talk about my experience with Venus and why I love this brand, share some fun facts about Venus, and what you can expect from their shave club for women!
MY EXPERIENCE WITH GILLETTE VENUS
I believe I was 10 when I first started to shave my legs and when my mom took me to the store the only brand I wanted to buy was Venus! Why? Not only was this the brand my mom used, and I saw her use for years, but I knew this brand was specifically for women. I loved the various options Venus offered at the store and I was so excited to try my very first razor.
Over the years I’ve tried other brands, but nothing compared to my Venus razor. You know the myth that you need to use a guy’s razor to get a closer shave? Yeah, that isn’t the case whenever I am using my Venus handle and razor. My legs always looked their best when I use this brand!
I also used to be a swimmer for 12 years! Here’s a fun fact about swimming (you might find it a little weird, but this is VERY true!). In swimming all the girls wouldn’t shave their legs for about three to four months. If you’re asking yourself ewww, why?! Here’s the reason!
In swimming races come down to a hundredth of a second so every little piece of drag you can take off counts! There was always one big race at the end of the year I spent my entire season training for. When it came time to shave for the big meet the only brand I trusted was Venus! Every year this is the brand I would use because I love it so much!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT GILLETTE VENUS
Now that you know my love for this company is so real here’s a little bit about the company! In 2001, Gillette Venus introduced the first razor designed specifically for women, and ever since then, they’ve been listening to women to bring them a better, more comfortable shaving experience.
Did you know they have innovated around the 16 different ways women hold their razor?! I had no idea!
