All about women’s razors Gillette Venus
The razor is currently the most popular and common option for hair removal. In today’s market there are a large number of manufacturers of such cosmetic products. Highly in demand among customers razors, produced by Gillette. Today we will talk about the features of these female razors.
How to choose a cassette for shaving?
Most men do not know how to choose a cassette for shaving and prefer inexpensive products, although in most cases the cheap blades spoil faster and there is no sense in such savings.
Good cassettes with blades should be expensive, because the production involves environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic, quality and durable materials, as well as the latest production technologies.
The following criteria should be used to select replacement cassettes for your machine tool:
- Manufacturer’s name. It is desirable that the brand of the machine tool and cassettes are the same, in any case, a man should trust the proven brands.
- Price. As has already been said, cheap pens for looms are consumed much faster than branded ones made of quality materials, which can still be sharpened to extend their life.
- Materials of manufacture. A good product will be the one that is made of durable steel, has protective coatings, and implies a long service life.
- Skin type. For each skin type, manufacturers offer a variety of blade finenesses. The sharpest are suitable for men with oily or normal skin, and with experience in handling a razor. For dry or sensitive skin, it’s best to choose a softer blade.
Loom compatibility was also a deciding factor in my choice, as the wrong cassette might not fit properly in the head of the loom, increasing the risk of facial trauma. In the market for such products you can often come across a knockoff, so you need to choose branded cassettes with special care.
Gillette SWORD shaving blades
Today was the day I started testing the new blades and it took me a long time to choose which ones I want to use.
After platinum Gillette, blades of this company became interesting to me, so I decided to try their new product SWORD.
The envelope is nice and neatly made, apparently the designer tried.
But the back of the envelope is not thought out at all, the inscriptions can not read until you open it, I think it should not be, the impression that the Chinese in a hurry made, very suspicious.
When I removed the first envelope I was even more surprised. Very hackneyed, this does not look like Gillette products. I have never seen anything like this before, the second envelope did not even cover part of the blade itself.
The blade itself turned out to be black, the impression is that it is just painted, there is a sharp burr on the side, the edge already looks uneven. Definitely, it is something of a series of fakes, or technical blades. On sale are very similar to these blades, but to which people have few complaints. They have a similar name, but more complete Gillette “Wilkinson” Sword.
As I expected, shaving with fake blades without the word “Wilkinson” in the name was impossible, they did not cope with the hair at all, they just pulled on the mustache, shave something unable to. I had to immediately replace this blade with another. The result is 0 sessions, qualified as unfit for shaving, I do not recommend it, most likely a fake.
There are many ways to get rid of unwanted body hair. The most painless shave. Women often complain of irritation, itching, and lack of absolute smoothness after treatment. With Gillette Venus you can forget about these problems.

Replacement razor blade cassettes
If you purchase a machine with interchangeable cassettes, then after using all the accessories that came with it, you do not need to buy a new one. To continue working with your existing model, simply purchase replacement cassettes.
The cassettes can fit a variety of models, but there are exceptions. In order to avoid misunderstandings, it is worth checking with the seller.
The second most popular series of replaceable cassettes after Mach3 (link to article) at Gillette is Fusion5. fusion).
This series was born in 2007, and admittedly, really good shaves. Unlike “Mac3”, which replaced the “Sensor” and did not bring anything revolutionary to the process (do not count as such a lubricating strip), “Fusion” gillette fusion proglide cassettes buy, in fact, does a great job. And if I had to choose gillett blades, I’d go with the Fusion5.
There are six flavors in all: Fusion5, Fusion5 Power, Fusion5 Proglide, Fusion5 Proglide Power, Fusion5 ProShield and Fusion5 ProShield Chill. And every one of them goes with any Fusion machine, t.е. Interchangeability is complete.
5 anti-friction (whatever that means) blades, improved lubricating strip indicator, trimmer for grass on the back of the cassette for a precise shave, 15 micro ridges under the blades. that’s what the basic Fusion5. The blades are even thinner and sharper than before. I wonder what they’re comparing it to? With “poppy”, with disposable looms, or with third-party cassette manufacturers in general. The micro ridges smooth the skin better in front of the blades, and the lubricating strip lasts longer (better blades would last longer). The only major plus and innovation is the grass trimmer on the back of the cassette to trim hard-to-reach places.
You can’t tell the difference between Fusion5 and Fusion5 Power cartridges except for the color (even the price is the same): only the tools are different, and the blades are interchangeable. “The Fusion Power is a battery-operated AA machine that creates microvibrations. Magically it has some effect on no irritation if you have sensitive skin, but there’s no proof of that, of course, so let’s take the manufacturer’s word for it. By the way, our inquisitive mind did find an insignificant difference between two cassettes: the indicator strip in Fusion5 Power contains avocado oil and grape-seed oil. This, of course, changes a lot! (sarcasm)
Fusion5 Proglide blades. glide) are already at least somewhat different from the basic model: the indicator strip is wider; micro combs, on the contrary, are smaller (there are 10 of them) and softer; and the grass trimmer blade is now easier to wash due to the redesigned. Besides, from the advertising booklet we read that 4 out of 5 blades (and why not all 5, I wonder?) is thinner and sharper than the standard Fusion. According to subjective sensations, the Proglide is really better than the basic Fusion, but maybe it just seems like. It costs a bit more too, though. the price difference is about 20%.
The Fusion5 ProGlide Power blade has significant external differences from the stock “proglide”. Subjected to rolling, micro comb, which became smaller and now has 5 strips; also directly under the blades appeared micro-comb, which is designed to guide the bristles to the blades for a cleaner shave. In reality, the same cassette on average, 35% more expensive than the basic “proglide” and almost 60%. standard “Fusion” and the difference in shaving quality with Fusion5 ProGlide is not felt.

The Fusion5 ProShield blade is. shield) are very similar to ProGlide Power: the first similarity. the price, both cassettes cost the same; the second thing they have in common. this little micro comb, and the third. the presence of micro comb. By the way, this comb came to the best advantage here.
ProShield cassette has two lubricating strips (and this is its main difference from ProShield Paeur), the first of which is located in front of the blades. So when the machine is on the skin, this strip simply presses the bristles, while micro-comb detaches hairs, lifts them and directs them precisely under the blade blade.
Gillette Fusion5 ProShield Chill (photo from the official site Gillette)
Fusion5 ProShield Chill. chill) differs from the previous model the presence of menthol in the lubricating strip, which gives a feeling of coolness on the skin after passing the blade. Chill costs 65% more than the stock Fusion5 in Russian stores, but at the same time is on par with the basic ProShield.
In the end it’s impossible not to mention the looms. Fusion5 ProGlide and ProShield, and their Power variants are machines with FlexBall technology that allows the head to rotate not only up/down like the standard Mach3 and Fusion, but also to the right/left. Thus, the blade swings in four directions and, in theory, should easily pass any curves in the face and neck. In reality, our testing showed that the benefits of this “feature” is sucked out of thin air and only raises the price of the machine.
What would I choose if I were you? Definitely, the Fusion5 ProGlide. it’s not much more expensive than the basic “fusion. If only the fact that Bolin Webb and Muehle machines come with these blades by default speaks in favor of these cassettes.
Muehle Sophist shaving set with faora handle
Let’s be fair. the Fusion5 shaves cleaner and more comfortably than the Mac3, Sensor, and Slalom. Another thing is that it, like all other Jillet blades, lacks longevity. The manufacturer claims one month of confident use. I don’t know if you shave once a week, it’s good for a month, but not really. Here we were already lamenting the fact that Gillette’s replacement cassettes aren’t what they used to be. And definitely, all these “proshildy” and “Power”. clearly a marketing strategy of Gillette to pump money out of men, and all the extra “pluses” is simply not necessary.
Inexpensive cassettes for a family of looms Gillette Fusion. There are nuances
Hello, folks! A long time ago, in the days of greener grass and the dollar at 30, I used to shave with the most sophisticated loom at the time. Gillette Fusion Power (the one with 5 blade cassettes and a vibrating action). But then dark times came, and the price of the cassette was too biting. I had to switch to something easier.
As suddenly, just after New Year’s Eve 2021, comes my push ad for a super discount on cassettes for Gillette Fusion: 20 cassettes for a little over a thousand. How can I refuse, when the supermarkets for that money can not even buy a pack of 4 pieces? Especially the machine itself was carefully lying around somewhere in the toolbox. So the order was placed without long deliberation.
After 17 days, the standard yellow package arrived at the post office, with no additional packaging, inside which were 5 standard plastic boxes, 4 cassettes each, packed in plastic bags.
Boxes are pretty strong, and the cassettes themselves are not fragile, for this reason, the seller probably did not bother with the bubble wrap. The absence of Gillette logo on the box is immediately apparent.
Also missing the back cover. This shows that the cassettes in front of us are obviously not original cassettes.
Although the machine fits as native. The cassette clicks and locks firmly into place. Nothing wiggles or snaps.
In fact, here’s how it sits on the machine. A perfect fit for the contour. But it’s definitely not the original cassettes.
Except for the lack of a logo, the cassette has no extra blade on the back side. Although it’s a very important blade that’s good for trimming the area just under your nose. I can’t shave well with a 5-blade cassette. And besides, on the front side above the blades, the usual plastic nape, instead of the soap composition, which should provide additional sliding.
Otherwise, the cassettes are identical to the original. Almost identical. During use it became clear that the blades themselves are of inferior quality to the original. If the original cassette enough for 4-5 comfortable shave and as much more uncomfortable. That these blades blunt for 3-4 shaves to the state at which they no longer shave, and pull bristles.
If you shave no more than twice a week and don’t have stiff bristles that are comparable to wire, you can buy the cassette without a problem. Even if you have to change the cassette more often, it’s still 30% cheaper. Otherwise, one cassette will be enough only for weeks or less. Then the price will be comparable to the original.
“The first blade shaves cleaner, the second even cleaner, and the 25th polishes the bone.”. It was in the KVN back in the early 2000s.
