How I use my Gillette Venus Razor for a perfect shave:

With this all new Gillette Venus Razor shaving is super easy as its moving head fits itself in all nooks and crannies when you use the razor. However for the best shave, take a quick warm water shower use a scrub to make ingrowns come out. Now rough dry yourself as razors work best on damp skin. Apply shaving gel (PS I love the Satin Care shaving gel). Then draw the razor towards you with minimal pressure.  Once you are done touch the area for any left hair. Shower and apply mosturiser and you are done!
