BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whether it’s running into an ex, forgetting to apply deodorant, or a stumble-while-you-strut situation, every woman faces a number of uncomfortable moments in her daily life. At Gillette Venus, we believe that her shave shouldn’t be one of them. A comfortable shave can have a strong effect on how good a woman feels in her own skin. In fact, most women rank shaving higher than a new outfit or a full night’s sleep in its ability to make them feel more comfortable and confident.** Now, Gillette Venus has a solution for the 96% of women who experience discomfort while shaving.** Only Gillette Venus ComfortGlide razors have flexible moisture bars to glide seamlessly over and into every curve of a woman’s body, offering unsurpassed* comfort without sacrificing closeness—just in time to rock beautiful, flawless skin this spring.
To better understand how shaving can affect a woman’s confidence, Gillette Venus investigated how shaving can affect their comfort levels in a wide variety of situations with a global survey. The study found that a majority of women feel much more comfortable and confident getting a massage, going out with friends, and giving a client presentation when they have a smooth shave.** With ComfortGlide razors, women can discover how a smooth shave with unsurpassed* comfort can help her step out of the shower, and confidently into whatever her day may bring.
“In speaking with women around the globe over the years, we’ve found most experience a trade-off with their current razor that prevents them from getting a comfortable shave and the smooth results they desire to feel comfortable in their own skin,” said Gillette Venus Products Researcher, Patrice James. “In addition to the designed-for-her-curves features found in all Venus razors, ComfortGlide razors were created to bring a more comfortable experience – and beautiful, smooth results, instantly.”
Gillette Venus ComfortGlide razors contain moisture bars that have been designed to flex around every contour of the body, releasing skin conditioning body butter while you shave for effortless glide. Wetting the razor activates the built-in moisture bars, releasing a light lather with each stroke, allowing the razor to glide seamlessly all over the body. Their unique flexibility allows them to be in constant contact with the skin surface, providing lubrication before and after the blades touch the skin to enable a comfortable, smooth glide with each stroke.
