Where some of the Mach3 and Venus razors used to be…
Here, most all stores have the Venus Vibrance and Mach 3 cartridges behind the counter or under lock. Wal-mart, Save-on’s/Osco, Long’s/ Wal-greens, all have them removed from the shelf. Here the cost of a four pack is about twelve dollars. I myself think the whole thing is silly. I bought fifteen four packs on ebay at $4.00 each. Considering my last cartridge lasted me eight great shaves, I don’t plan on buying any other shaving device anytime soon. However, I do want to try out that aqua blue/green non-vibrating Venus shaver. I like the big round thing at the handle’s end. It seems it would be easy to grasp and move around quickly. When I grab the Venus Vibrance by the end ball, I can feel it flex at the joint part. I think water will eventually leak into it as it stresses the joint.
As for the Fusion, I wonder if they will make the head kind of large the way the Venus is, so it’ll align with the skin’s surface angle better. Also, how much are heads going to cost? I can’t imagine them costing less than fifteen dollars for four cartridges. They’ll probably give an extremely smooth shave, with more skin cell exfoliation than any other razor. I just wouldn’t want to nick myself with one. That could catch some serious skin.
With each new razor, we seem to get accustomed to higher and higher prices, like gasoline. But the improving products yield better, more convenient results. I thoroughly love the Vibrance. Using a better razor makes the whole process quicker, nick-free, and less of an arduous task.
