HEAVY LIFT­ING

Fashion (Canada) - - Beauty Fix - —Souzan Michael

Since Gil­lette in­tro­duced the first Venus ra­zor— specif­i­cally de­signed with women’s needs in mind—in 2001, the brand has built up an im­pres­sive of­fer­ing of six dif­fer­ent women’s ra­zors. So re­searchers were un­der­stand­ably baf­fled to learn that many women favour the weight and con­trol of men’s ra­zors. This led to the cre­ation of the line’s most re­cent ad­di­tion, the Gil­lette Venus Plat­inum Ex­tra Smooth ($15), with a metal han­dle that sim­u­lates the feel­ing of us­ing a sturdy men’s ra­zor. An added bonus: Its blades are cov­ered with a di­a­mond-like coat­ing that strength­ens them, al­low­ing them to be thin­ner and sharper than ever with­out com­pro­mis­ing com­fort.
