I have very sensitive skin on my legs when it comes to shaving so I was very excited to try this razor. It worked well on my legs and didn't cut me badly or give bad shaving rash like some cheap disposables do.
I don't understand the use of the 'protective ribbon'? You still need lots of shaving foam. Mine came with a shower stand included but it was useless and kept un-sticking from my bathroom tiles.
The biggest let-down for this product, as with most razors, is the price of the replacement blades. I can't believe the price of any Gillette blades but these ones are pricer than the average ones. Therefore I ended up buying the average Venus ones because they were a better price, so at least the other heads fit all Venus shavers.
