A CENTURYIN THE MAKING
Back in 1901, King Gillette invented a safety razor that completely changed the way men shaved—and led to a new company dedicated to smooth skin. 100 years later, that company introduced the original Gillette Venus razor, forever transforming women’s shaving.
Raising the Bar
Although Venus has a deep heritage within the Gillette family, this was no men’s razor colored pink!
Designed especially for the way a woman shaves, the Venus Original set our standard for women’s razors. It navigated feminine curves with a rounded, pivoting head. Felt natural in a woman’s hands with a contoured, Soft Grip® handle. Protected against nicks and cuts with protective cushions. And made short work of shaving with individually adjusting blades.
Every razor we’ve created since has been designed especially for the way a woman shaves. With such a passionate understanding of what should go into a women’s razor, it’s no surprise that we’re the #1 female shaving brand in the world!
