The start of the school term is here, and as much as I’d love it to be officially autumn, it is still very much summer (as the hot and humid weather is showing my hair at least)! I have been living in shorts and dresses as it has just been so warm for so long, and think it will carry on that way for a little longer. As a result, I am someone that chooses to shave my legs. Suffering from PCOS means I have always been hairier than my mum or my sisters, so it is something that I prefer to do to make myself feel fresh and feel more confident and happy in myself.
Finding the right razor can be tricky, because there are so many to choose from, and often when I’m short on time it would just be whatever I can grab from the supermarket. These are usually just a load of plastic, sharp single blades and then I not only have a load of plastic to throw away, but a lot of razor burn or little cuts on my legs!
Fuss Free Shaving
I really like the idea of a subscription model for your razors. There’s nothing like getting into the shower and realising that all you’ve got left are used duds, especially in the height of summer. Being able to have them delivered to you at set intervals can be really handy, which is what makes FFS exactly what it says on the tin; fuss free shaving!
FFS is a sustainable beauty brand who deliver beauty essentials right to your door. Although they do have razors, they also have a range of products and essentials that will help you to get the smoothest shave ever. They aim for it to be effortless, and after having used them, I’m inclined to agree. The razor is easy to use, not too heavy to hold, and I ended up with no nicks or cuts after using it. It hangs up in my bathroom easily, so it’s there and ready for whenever I need it.
It’s nice to know that you can save money if you choose to subscribe and save. However, I don’t think the price point is too steep anyway. A razor trial kit is £14, which includes razor, two blades, and suction holder for the bathroom. Subsequent blades cost £22 for 8, and the shaving products and creams are generally around £6 each which I don’t think is that bad. Plus, when your paying for eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and sustainable products, you can usually expect a slightly higher price tag.
Their best-selling Full Shaving Set (£28.00) contains the above beauty essentials as well as: a zinc alloy handle, four premium SmoothGlide Blades, a safety blade cover, shower holder, and travel pouch.
Colour options and free engraving
There are a range of colour options to choose for your razor. I chose rose for my handle colour, but you can also choose from blossom, fir and olive. You can also get free engraving on your razor, as I did. Onyx is the newest handle colour, but it can’t be engraved. As the razor is shiny, I didn’t find that the engraving was very obvious, but if you’re sending it as a gift, as they have a range of gift boxes, then for free, it doesn’t hurt to add it on.
Does this sound like something that you’d be interested in? Even if you don’t fancy a subscription, I think that quality of the products is great, and they do have a fab gifting section on their website too.
It would be great to hear what you think.
