Friction Free Shaving is the first subscription shaving club in the world that’s been designed exclusively for women. It launched two years ago because of the consumer demand for high-quality razors at affordable prices. I know that I’ve always struggled to find suitable razors myself in the shops – they’re either cheap and rubbish, or very, very expensive, so I can certainly see where the gap in the market is. There have been lots of men’s shaving boxes around for a long time, so it was about time there was something that was just for women!
With Friction Free Shaving, prices start from just £5 per month, with free delivery and you’re not tied into any contract so you can cancel at any time. The subscriptions are customisable too, as you’ll soon see below, which makes them a brilliant gift idea.
When you first sign up to Friction Free Shaving, you can choose from three different razor designs (Rose, Silvia or Frankie), and this will be included in your first box. I chose Rose because I love anything that’s Rose Gold and this razor is absolutely gorgeous! You also have the option to have your razor personalised, and naturally, I had it engraved with my name. It looks very stylish and something that I would be proud to show off in my bathroom, rather than hide away like I do with other razors!
The razor is chrome-plated to prevent rust so that it will last longer, and it has a weighted handle with a rubberised grip to make it comfortable to hold. It also features a 90 degrees pivotal head which helps you to adapt the razor so that it glides effortlessly over the natural contours of a woman’s body. Clever stuff.
In the box next to your razor, you’ll find a Shower Holder attachment, a Blade Cover and four weeks of blade heads so that you can have a clean, fresh shave as often as possible. There’s nothing worse than cutting yourself on an old blade because you forgot to buy some new blade heads, so this Friction Free Shaving subscription service will keep you fully stocked up every month.
The refillable Blade Heads have been designed with German engineering technology, and they feature six diamond-coated steel blades for the closest and smoothest shave that you’ve ever had. I’ve been incredibly impressed by these since they arrived and my legs feel so silky smooth as a result – perfect timing for all of those Summer dresses!
If you turn the blade head over, you’ll also find a clever inbuilt bikini styling blade which you can use to carefully tidy up the bikini line and get rid of any stray hairs. This razor really is ideal for taking with you on holiday, as well as everyday use in your bathroom.
To complete your Friction Free Shaving subscription, you can choose some shaving products to add to your box. Inside mine, I found a Pre-Shave Scrub, a Shave Cream and a Post Shave Balm. All of these are 100ml sized, so again, great for travelling with, and all have a really lovely fresh and clean scent. Like the razor and the heads, I’ve been very impressed with the quality of these shaving products and can definitely see myself ordering more of these with future boxes.
