Being able to mix and match cartridges was fun and functional! I certainly enjoyed being able to mix and match the colors to suit mood.

Venus Embrace 5 blade - excellent shave.

I like the purple handle from Venus Breeze the best as it matched my decor and the cartridge is the Venus Embrace.

The cartridges with the moisturizing features are okay but some the the Olay ones gave me a rash in the sensitive areas of the groin.

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
I enjoyed mixing the different cartridges and handles given to me. It is nice that Venus makes a universal click-in cartridge system which allows you to use different cartridges with different handles. It's fun to mix and match the colors, and different functions of the razors. Some cartridges have more moisture bars than others and its fun mix the colors and personalize the razor the way i want it.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
My favorite cartridge is by far the venus + Olay moisture bars. I find i can use this razor without any shaving cream and my skin is still smooth to the touch all while catching all the hairs with only 1 stroke. I feel with the Olay added to it it leaves my skin feeling soft all day long.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
My favorite handle is the one from the Divine razor. I find this razor is not a pure plastic texture i like the rubbery texture of the handle that lets me grip on it even more and give me more precision while shaving. I also love that the color is not a solid color but a soft frosted blue. I feel this razor handle is formed exactly for my hand shape and allows me to hold the razor with more precision.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
My favorite combination was from the Pro-Skin cartridge and the Divine Handle. I feel the shape and texture of the handle allowed me to hold the razor naturally in my hands which allowed me to pass over my legs with alot of precision and control. That plus the Pro-Skin cartridge cut the hair effortlessly all while deeply moisturizing my skin. This combination is my favorite for the look of the assembled razor with the maximum benefits.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Using various styles of razors i found that Venus does provide outstanding moisturizing properties compared to other brands. That being said, different razors within the Venus brand have more moisturizing properties than others. I found that the Venus+ Olay and the Pro-Skin razors are the razors in the Venus brand that provide optimum moisturizing properties for the skin.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Using various styles of razors i found that Venus provides razor handles shaped and formed specially to fit the unique shape of the hand. I found that while holding the handles regardless of the specific Venus razor name (Pro-Skin, Embrace, etc) they are all form fitting and provide maximum grip to shave closer and better. While i believe all Venus razors have the same basic handle shape, i feel that the Divine razor provides the best grip possible from the rubbery type material of the handle instead of traditional plastic handle.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
My skin did indeed feel silky smooth after using Venus razors. My skin was soft and smooth to the touch with no missed spots or bumps. I feel these razors are simple yet maximized to offer the best, most precise close shave that other razors cant offer. These razors are comfortable to use easy to maintain and give u a long lasting shave that many others cant. The added moisture on top is just a bonus and an undeniable part to achieve silky smooth skin days after you shaved.

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?

venus breeze - purple one, liked the shave gel bars and the scent

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
all seemed similar so no specific favourite

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
didn't get a chance to try all but I liked the olay one (sorry, I didn't save the package for that one but the handle was the darker pink) with the blade it was meant for

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
all the ones with the gel bars were pretty good, sometimes had to re-wet them midway or angle the gel part to allow it to get moisturized

yes, all have ridges and the shape is nice to hold and don't slip while you are using them

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes. I didn't try them all, but it was nice to have the option to combine them according to one's personal preferences.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
Venus Breeze Venus with Olay

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
Venus (the one with the "grippy", rubbery handle)

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
A Venus handle with a Venus Breeze cartridge. It was the right combination of grip, control and ease. I really liked the "lather and shave" aspect.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes, I did. They are excellent in both smoothness and gentleness. My skin didn't feel dry or rough if I didn't moisturize afterwards.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Yes, for the most part. It is very true of the rubbery handles, which really have superior grip.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes, I was pleased with the result. I've been very satisfied with all of the products I tried. I'm planning on sticking with Venus from here on.

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes, I did not know that all the handles were interchangeable.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
I think the one I liked the most was the Venus ProSkin. It was a hard decision to pick a favorite as all the razors were good, easy to use and gave a nice shave.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
Can not pick a favorite handle. I liked each one and the fact that they can be interchanged is great.

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
Again here, I cannot pick a combination. Tired mixing them several times and cannot come up with a favorite.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Truthfully, Venus is the only razor that I have used for many many many years, so I cannot comment on other razor handles.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
yes, I have always gotten a great shave with Venus razors and my skin has that nice smooth feeling afterwards.

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Yes! Loved all the scents! Sugarberry was my favorite;)

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
The venus & Olay cartridge was an amazingly smooth shave!

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
The Venus & Olay handle's grooves make for a comfortable hold!

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
The Venus & Olay with its own cartridge.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
Yes, and the Venus &Olay especially, until the moisture bar ran out....

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Very much so, especially Venus & Olay.

Soooo smooth. Like a baby's butt!

Did you enjoy mixing and matching the Venus cartridges and handles you received?
Not usually. All the handles were pretty similar. And I prefer using the handles with the corresponding cartridge so the colours matched.

Tell us about your favorite cartridge(s):
The Venus Embrace was my favourite because of the large moisture strip that ran around the entire cartridge. I also liked the 5 blades that provided a closer and smoother shave.

Tell us about your favorite handle(s):
As stated above, all the handles were fairly similar except for the original Venus one and the Venus Devine one. Those two had less grip (rubber surfaces) and I didn't like them as much. I suppose overall, my favourite would be the Venus Breeze because it provided both grip and a pleasing shade of purple :)

What was your favorite cartridge and handle combination?
The blue Proskin MoistureRich handle and blue/green Embrace cartridge.

Did you find that Venus cartridges have outstanding moisturizing properties?
They didn't really leave my skin particularly moisturized by the time I got out of the shower. I still have to use lotion afterwards.

Did you find that Venus handles have a better grip than other razor handles?
Most Venus handles have textured rubber grips which provide better comfort and grip during use compared to other razor handle I have used so far. They were also light weight.

Did your skin feel silky smooth after using Venus razors?
Yes :)
