(Review): Venus ProSkin MoistureRich Razor

We all want our skin to be smooth, soft to the touch and radiant. This means, there’s no place for nicks and cuts.

And we’ve tried countless razors, creams, after-shave lotions (the feminine versions, of course), and moisturizers. And of course, we’ve tried more than our fair share of depilatories.

Gillette Venus ProSkin MoistureRich Razor

We’ve always been huge fans of Venus razors (thank goodness they didn’t name it “Mars” or “Luna”). True to the name, the elegant, ergonomically-shaped razors leave your skin stubble free and clean. Our Venus journey has included the purple Embrace (the brand’s first five-blade razor with a ribbon of moisture), and the Spa Breeze 2 +1 Razor and Shave Gel combined.

Now, the brand has launched ProSkin MoistureRich Razor whose shave gel bars are enriched by a triple blend of body butters. This enhances the skin’s protection and leaves it soft and as smooth as pelt.

The razor is actually one of my favorites: it has a pivoting head that hugs your curves and contours and reaches all those hard to reach areas. The only pet peeve I have about this razor is that the shave gel bars dissolve pretty quickly in the shower, so you’re encouraged to store them in an area where your shower water can’t reach them (if you leave them by the tub, they just end up a tad messy).

Other than that, I had a very pleasant experience shaving with the ProSkin MoistureRich Razor. The unit comes with two replacement razor cartridges and a shower hook and retails at drugstores for $9.79.

Have you tried ProSkin? What do you think about it?

  1. I’M A AVID FAN OF VENUS EMBRACE WHICH LEAVES MY LEGS FLAWLESS,HOWEVER I WOULD LOVE TO TRY VENUS PRO-SKIN WITH ALL THE ADDED BENEFITS OF THE GEL BARS TO INCREASE MOISTURE,IT SOUNDS LIKE A WINNER..:))…….

  2. I use to love Venus too, but I bought the new Venus Proskin a couple of weeks ago. I still had a good Venus, so I used it until the moisture bar ran dry. To make a long story short I decided to use my new Proskin today. I opened it and used it today, well after I got out of the shower I had scratches/gashes on my legs and they were burning. I looked at the razor to see if something was wrong with it. Sure enough one of the blades had half of a chunk missing out of it. My legs hurt so bad. I just can’t believe that I will now have to check a Venus over for missing blades before I can use it. I have been a loyal customer for many years. The scares that my legs will have will make it very hard for my to buy anything from Gillette Venus again. I do have pictures of both the new razor and of my legs.
    Good luck Ladies, but please check your shaver before placing it on your legs.

  3. To Lorinda,
    I’m the Community Manager for Venus razors, and I want to respond to your comment – that is definitely not normal for our product and I would encourage you to report it directly to our customer service line at 1-800-GILLETTE so we can help you out. We’ll probably want to get that razor back if you still have it and do some testing. Again, sorry for the bad experience, and please get in touch with us! You can also reach me via venusrazors@gmail.com.

  4. While the Venus Proskin, is most likely a great product,
    I would still recommend switching over to using an epilator.
    While to some it hurts a little, clearly it beats having to purchase creams and buying razors, getting razor burns, bumps and ingrown hairs.

  5. I have used the Venus ProSkin for about two weeks now. I was looking for reviews to see if others were having similar problems to mine. My problem with this razor is that I still have to use soap/shaving cream or else the razor will cut and scratch my legs and under arms. I believe that I will be switching razor blades ASAP.
