I have sensitive skin. Like, really sensitive skin. And turns out, I’m not alone. According to a survey by Gillette Venus, 60 percent of women feel like their sensitive skin is getting in the way of a close, smooth shave. I can totally relate — whenever I shave it feels like my skin is stripped of moisture and left dry and flaky. And don’t even get me started on my bikini line … I’m not sure what’s worse: the red bumps or the stinging!

I always assumed these issues were just because of my super sensitive skin, but it turns out that I may have been wrong. While I may indeed have sensitive skin (note: I’m allergic to random things like sunscreen and lots of lotions), my bikini rash may be made much, much worse because of something that is super easy to fix: my razor! Doh! Oh, how I’ve wasted years using the wrong dang razor!

So, what’s this perfect razor that I’ve found? It’s the Venus Embrace Sensitive. It’s a perfect match for women with sensitive skin — like me! — and can totally help with all the issues I jabbered about above.


The new Venus Embrace Sensitive has five blades for an ultra-close shave, and it has a protective ribbon of moisture with a touch of aloe. This not only keeps your legs smooth post-shower, but also it helps the blades to glide so that you can get a great shave with less irritation, even on sensitive skin. No wonder Venus is the No. 1 razor brand used by female dermatologists. Woot!

I’ve been using the Venus Embrace Sensitive and, ladies, it does not even begin to compare to my previous razors that just had two or three blades. After I shave, my legs feel so smooth and beautiful. Just how I like ‘em before I head out for a run in the spring sun. And shaving with the Venus Embrace Sensitive helps me to focus on that run — not my itchy and red legs! And while I haven’t hit the beach or pool yet, I’m anxious to feel less self-conscious about my bikini line. Me and my Venus Embrace Sensitive are a match made in heaven! (Plus, it’s a pretty little thing, huh?)


Turns out, my skin isn’t nearly as sensitive as I thought it was — I just needed a different razor! If you think you have sensitive skin like I did, you should totally give the Venus Embrace Sensitive a try.
