There is a new razor in town – designed just for us gals. The Gillette Venus Embrace razor has five blades. It also has a “Ribbon of Moisturizer” encircling the blades. Let’s back up a moment and let me repeat something important here…five blades. Five. Not two or three or even four; five. Now, unless you’re in a family of Sasquatch, five blades are at least two blades too many. I can understand two blades; one to scrape off those pesky hairs, and one to clean up the places the first blade might have missed. Three blades catch all the hairs plus a few layers of skin you didn’t know you had. Four blades and we’re in Sweeney Todd territory. But five blades could conceivably clear out your front lawn and lay bare a substrata deep enough to make a grown archeologist cry. I’m all for innovation and I’m always interested in gadgets that may save me some time and effort. But I’m not planning on buying the Gillette Venus Embrace. Nope, not unless they add a Ribbon of Neosporin and throw in a free tourniquet.
