The Perfect Razor For Travel, Gillette Venus Snap : Review

If you have been following C&D for a while, you would know by now that I have absolutely given up on waxing as a means for hair removal. 
For the past couple of years I have just stuck to 2 ways - Epilating and Shaving (the latter being used more frequently due to lack of time and general laziness). 

So while I love the standard Gillette Venus razor a lot, and also enjoyed the Venus Breeze (I have spoken about on our Instagram page), when it comes to being on the move, neither of those are quite travel friendly. The Venus Snap was something I had seen many YouTubers talk about, and after a long long period of contemplation I finally went ahead on got it! 
Why the long time deciding? Coz this baby is not available in India...yet and I had to pay a ridiculous amount on Amazon for a razor! (I still feel guilty about it!). But it is so worth it.

Firstly, look at how cute this is! Of course that is not the reason to buy this. The Venus Snap is small enough to lob in your bag each time you travel...that's why I got it!

It comes with in a cute plastic case that has small holes in it to allow any excess water to drain out.

The best part? The small rubber disc handle fits any regular size Gillette blade! I have used this with the standard Venus blades, the Venus Breeze blades and of course, it comes with  it's own 5 blade head - I wish someday we have the 5 blades available in India too.

Just look at how small it is. Do not judge the small size though. It is brilliantly effective. The small handle does take a little while to get used to. But it's so so convenient to carry around.

This one is perfect to take along on your vacation, to throw in your gym bag, weekend trips ...whenever you are on the go. Use the Gillette Venus Breeze cartridges with this and you do not even need to carry shaving gel.
I would not say this is a must buy, but if you travel frequently, then you might want to look into this :)

The only downside is the price, since it isn't available in India yet. Gillette India are you listening?! For now, you can find it on Amazon India here.
