Friction Free Shaving – Review.

I heard of FFS razors from a friend’s instagram post, I liked the look of the razor so looked them up, and decided to give them a try.

You pay £9 for the set up of a beautiful razor in rose gold, and 4 blades which are designed to be used 1 per week, you can have the razor engraved with your name for £6.

The razor comes in a slim lined white box that easily fits through your letter box. On a bed of pink shredded paper, the razor is gorgeous, slim fits nicely in your hand, and quite heavy, (compared to plastic razors) It’s beautiful rose gold, with a flexible head making it glide over knees perfectly, the blade comes with a precision blade, and 6 diamond coated blades with an Aloe Vera lubrication strip. This razor was voted Best Women’s Razor at the Product of the Year awards 2019.

The blades are in a plastic case which you use the razor to attach to the blades to safely get them out.

The first time I used it I hadn’t shaved my legs for a few days to test how good it is, and I was really impressed my legs felt smooth and not at all irritated like they do with the cheap plastic throw away razors, I’ve also used it for those small stubbly hairs when you just need a top up because it’s hot out and you wanna wear a dress, or shorts or you’re going swimming etc but where the cheap razors then give you razor rash, this doesn’t, my legs felt lovely after.

I haven’t tried any of their other products yet, but I’m hoping they’ll be just as good.

You sign up to a monthly subscription which you can cancel at any time or just skip a month here and there, the subscription is £9 per month which means you’re paying £2.25 per week for a razor, which probably does sound a lot, but when you look at other makes of razor refills those are anywhere form £8.99 for 4 to £12.99 for 4. And comparable razors are still all mostly plastic so I really like this product with it being metal.

I had my razor engraved with my name.

Friction Free offer a blade recycling scheme, so you just pop your blades back in their plastic box and send it all back to them, you do have to pay postage costs but you can send them back second class large letter to save on costs.

They have the leaping bunny certificate, cruelty free products and none tested on animals, which is excellent, all their products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

And they’re fighting the pink tax, by making their blades £1 less (average price) then some of the big named brands.

For £9 it’s worth a try if nothing else, but I’m sure everyone who tries this will love it.
