BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gillette® Venus is teaming up with Olympic All-Around Gold Medalist
Gabby Douglas this summer, to celebrate how, as an accredited female
gymnast, she moves like no other. Gabby will show women a part of her
life they haven’t seen before – the everyday moves she makes that lead
up to her performing her best – in and out of the gym.
“Venus has always been in my shower for as long as I can remember and I
am so excited to be their new ambassador for this campaign. It’s about
celebrating movement and as a gymnast, that’s at the core of everything
I do,” said Gabby Douglas. “Even out of the gym, my day is made up of
all different kinds of movements, big and small – some the same as
everyone else. I’m excited to bring this side of me to my fans and show
them how having confidence is the key to rocking all of their moves!”
Gabby’s passion for movement started at the early age of six, when she
began formal gymnastics training. At only 14, Gabby moved from her
Virginia Beach hometown to Des Moines, Iowa to begin elite training in
pursuit of her dream to compete in the London 2012 Olympics Games. Gabby
will attempt to defend her Gold medal title at the Rio 2016 Olympic
Games this summer, and strives to become the first gymnast to win
back-to-back All-Around Gold medals in The Olympics since 1968.
“Venus has always been dedicated to empowering women to reveal their
most confident and beautiful selves, inside and out, so we are thrilled
to support Gabby on her road to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games,” said Carlos
DeJesus, North America Gillette and Venus Brand Director. “Gabby is
strong and self-assured and her dedication to her sport is an
inspiration to girls everywhere; with her confidence as both an athlete
and a young woman, she truly embodies the Venus brand ideals.”
Just like Gabby, the Gillette Venus Swirl™ razor (Venus’ most advanced
razor) has moves like no other with proprietary FLEXIBALL™ technology
for multi-dimensional movement around all of women’s tricky areas.
Offering a flawless finish every time, Venus Swirl™ gives Gabby the
confidence she needs to perform at her best – both on and off the mat.
Designed by women for women, Swirl offers smooth, flawless results, so
women can save their best moves for outside the shower.
The suggested retail price of the Venus Swirl™ shaving system, which
includes 1 razor + 2 blade refills, is approximately $8.99-$13.59 MSRP. Please
