Living in Southwest Florida, I am constantly in shorts or sundresses. Which, of course, means I have to keep my legs and underarms neatly shaved. The Venus Breeze is the answer to my prayers. It is great for a quick touch-up because you don't need to use shaving lotion. The cartridge has a built-in shave gel bar above and below the razor blades. Simply wet your leg, get the razor wet, and you're all set. The cartridge has three blades, which make for an extremely close and smooth shave. Because of the gel bars, I have noticed that I very rarely get nicks when using this razor, which is an added plus. I also recommend this razor for girls who are beginning to learn how to shave. Since it offers a smoother shave, there is less chance of injury and makes for an easier learning curve.

While you don't have to use shave gel with the Venus Breeze, I have found that the gel strips on the cartridge do not last as long as do the sharpness of the blades. Therefore, I use shaving gel when the strips have lost their lubrication. While the cartridges may seem expensive, they average about five shaving sessions for me. When you then add in the savings you get from not using shaving gel as often, the Breeze is actually quite a bargain.
