For most people, myself included, keeping your legs hairless is an absolute chore that we would all rather skip. Unfortunately a hairy female leg is enough to cause scandal so we do what we can to keep on top of the stubble.
I have been shaving my legs since I was in Junior school as I had enough to be self conscious about without feeling like my legs were too hairy in PE. In the last 14 years I have tried a lot of different razors, but they all had one thing in common… They were the cheapest disposable drugstore razors you could find. They did the job for the most part, but I would cut my leg at least once without fail and the shave was never close enough.
Recently I discovered a company called Friction Free Shaving that offers shaving products as a subscription package and I was intrigued. First of all, the whole company is so down to earth with their marketing and humour. How could you not be when your company abbreviates to FFS? Their tv adverts even show people shaving actual hair and not just running a razor over baby smooth legs.
I decided it was time to get myself an adult razor so I signed up then and there. I went for the Silvia razor which is a sturdy silver chrome finish handle that holds the 6 blade heads. Each head has a vitamin E enriched lubricating strip, 6 diamond coated steel blades and a built in bikini blade. My starter package was only £9 and included the weighty handle, 4 razor heads and delivery straight to my door.
When my parcel first arrived I was so excited to try it that I took a couple of quick snaps then put it straight to the test. The packaging was simple and minimal with an extra information leaflet to get you started. This was equally as funny as their website material with quips like “We totes know what else FFS stands for – it’s how blunt blades make us f-ing feel!” Me too sis! So the box is neatly laid out and makes it very clear and simple to use. You just slide out your shiny new handle, click in your first blade straight from the casing and you’re ready to go. It’s such a smooth experience before you even get to touch your legs!
How did the razor perform though? Well, believe me when I say it was the most satisfying shaving experience I’ve ever had. Just one swipe and the hairs were gone! I was most shocked by the fact that I barely felt it against my skin. There was no dragging or bumping, the vitamin E strip just glided over every curve and kept the razor comfortably close to my skin. The movement in the head made it easy to reach every angle without a fuss and I didn’t cut myself! I stepped out of the shower feeling so silky soft that I wanted to leave a review then and there.
I have only been using my new FFS razor for a couple of weeks now, but I no longer dread having to shave my legs. Another crazy thing that I have noticed is that my hairs seem to be growing back slower! I think this is mostly due to the fact that the blades are able to give me a far closer shave than I am used to. I don’t think I will ever have the need to buy another drugstore razor ever again which is such a relief in itself.
As well as offering top notch razors, FFS also have lotions and potions to make your shaving experience even easier! Before you put blades to skin, prep using the Pre-Shave Scrub with all natural walnut husk to gently exfoliate away dead skin. There is an indulgent Shave Cream packed with Manuka honey, shea butter and coconut oil to keep your skin super moisturised during your shave. If that wasn’t enough, finish off with the Post-Shave Balm to soothe and hydrate your skin until next time.

Not only that but right now you can get started for just £5 (Usually £9), which includes your gorgeous new handle, 4 replacement blades and delivery. You can set your subscription to be every 1 or 2 months or you can pause or cancel any time if it’s not for you. What could be easier?

Of course, you don’t have to, but it’s always nice to get something back for my time 🙂
