A couple weeks ago while scrolling through my Instagram feed ( As you do ) I came across a snap of a beautiful engraved rose gold razor, call me crazy I know its just a razor but things like this really catch my eye, I love seeing pretty things that I would use daily it really makes me want it instantly! so I clicked the link and I was taken to the Friction free shaving website and I’m not going to lie I was instantly sold, I mean I’m already a sucker for a subscription box, theres nothing like having treats delivered to your door each month, regardless if you know what your little box contains or not, and how amazing to have something delivered to your door that you actually need and use each month. If your anything like me I’m so useless when it comes to buying razors I rather always forget to buy them and then find myself using the same razor until I finally remember, and Im constantly buying new razors when they are on offer because buying the blades sepratly form any drugstore can be pretty pricy..
So while I was scrolling through the FFS website I couldn’t believe how affordable there razors were, I mean even the beautiful rose gold one was £9 and the regular razor £5 witch I think is really reasonable considering your also getting 4 razor blades included for each week throughout the month, so there I was sitting on my lunch break purchasing a razor blade subscription box. At the check out there is an option to include the friction free shaving cream, which I also jumped on straight away because I never buy shaving cream, I always mean too and always forget so I never end up buying it, its pretty easy to forget, anytime I ever bought shaving cream from any drugstore in the UK its always right there on the lowest shelf right under all the razors, so its pretty easy to just walk past and forget, now I won’t forget because each month its getting delivered right to my door step.
So I thought I would write this post to give you a bit of a look into the shaving subscription box that has a lot of bloggers talking, heres a sneak peek into my first box..
As you can see the box comes beautifully packaged, its simple but all so pretty, it might just be me and I’m strongly over excited about this, the contents of the box are so cute, you get a little card that explains the basics of the razor and a little bit about the brand, there is also a fun little Craig David inspired FFS lyrics on the lid of the box which I thought was really quirky and fun.
Until I looked into signing up to this subscription box there was a lot of things I didn’t know about shaving, I mean did you know how much bacteria your razor collects while its just sitting in your bathroom? you really should be changing your razor blade weekly, and after using your razor and just having it sitting on the side your razor slowly becomes rusty and not so hygienic, so changing your razor blade weekly will actually keep your legs feeling a lot sleeker and softer.
“Change your blades once a week, and your legs shall be smooth & sleek.”

FFS have created the first ever metal razor for women I mean apart from the razor being rose gold it is so beautiful and it isn’t too light and isn’t too heavy, the grip is perfect and the whole round design of the razor is just perfect, its got the FFS logo at the bottom and I was lucky enough to have mine engraved, I obviously would of gone for Katharine but you can only choose up to 8 characters and Katharine just wouldn’t of fit, so I went for my initials instead, but I still think its the coolest thing ever, who can say the have there initials on there razor?!?!
Using the razor obviously isn’t any different to using any other razor except for the fact that I felt a huge difference in the glide, it was the most comfortable shave I’ve had in a while, and that could be because my previous razor was destined for the bin or because the blades on this razor are incredible, no pinching no cuts, nothing. After I had finished with my shave I just popped on the razor cap that comes inside the box, which I would highly recommend just so the Vitamin E strips don’t dry out. Your box also comes with 1 styling bikini blade built into the back of the cartridge so you can keep everything tidy!

The Shave cream has to be the best smelling shaving cream ever, it’s enriched with Manuka honey, Shea butter and coconut oil you can probably imagine how amazing it smells, as soon as I started rubbing it over my legs they felt so soft and defiantly something that would make shaving a whole lot better, in the past I used to use conditioner for my legs while shaving, ( Hence me forgetting to buy shaving cream all the time!) but this is a game changer, my legs felt so soft once I got out the shower I’m so happy I decided to add the shaving cream to my box it was defiantly worth the extra £6.
Im so happy I decided to go Friction Free, I love the fact that I no longer have to worry about buying new razors each month or having to huff and puff when I forget to buy one, because now I don’t need to remember because its getting delivered right to my door, the great thing about FFS is that your not locked into a contract you can pause or cancel your subscription at anytime so theres no long term commitment, and there are two razors to choose from there is the Frankie Razor which is only £5 a month and is such a cutie and comes with 3 razor blades per head and added victim E strips to each razor head, and has a 90 degree pivot head so its easy to get all them pesky hairs that you can never seem to get rid of no matter how many times you think you’ve been over them. Then of course there is Rose my new BBF Which is £9 a month and in my eyes completely worth it, I’m so happy I come across FFS and now ill never have to worry about rough legs or blunt razors ever again!
