I’m not the most organised person in the world, so I love a good subscription box (did you read my Top 10 list?).
I have one from Amazon that delivers all my toiletries on cue, and another timed to ensure I never run out of skincare and cosmetics. I also have a regular supply of women’s subscription razors delivered straight to my door, via the clever team at Friction Free Shaving.
I first discovered these guys when they first set up a couple of years ago and thought the idea was genius. It always annoyed me when my razors were past their prime, but buying new ones was just one of those things I never quite got around to sorting out (plus they were so expensive I resented forking out for them).
Friction Free Shaving isn’t just reasonably priced (plus, the money comes out by direct debit each month, so I barely notice it’s gone) but a new set of razors drops through my mailbox each month with absolutely no additional effort required of me. Perfect for my ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants’ lifestyle.
Originally launched with three handle and blade combinations (called ‘Shaviours’ – see what they did there?!), ranging from £5 – £9, the FFS range has now expanded to include a very special box set.
Inside is your choice of either the chrome Silvia or the rose-gold Rose handle – the first metal razor designed specifically for women – which can be engraved with your name for no extra cost. Also included is a set of four refills, each with six diamond-coated steel blades, a 90-degree pivot head and a specialist bikini blade built into the back of the cartridge.
But that’s not all, as each pack also includes:
• FFS Pre-Shave Scrub. Rich in almond milk and manuka honey (which has natural antibiotic properties), this also includes walnut husk to act as a natural exfoliant to prepare your skin for shaving, keeping it soft and smooth and reducing the occurrence of ingrown hairs.
• FFS In-Shower Shave Cream. Step away from the soap or body wash; this shave cream is specially formulated with coconut oil, witch hazel and manuka honey to allow the blades to glide over your skin, reducing irritation and avoiding annoying nicks and cuts.
• FFS Post-Shave Balm. The hot water of your shower and shaving itself can dry out your skin. Replace moisture by using the balm on your damp skin; the manuka honey, almond milk and cocoa butter sink into those parched layers, soothing your skin and leaving it looking smooth and hydrated.
• Shower Holder & Blade Cover
This set is worth £32 and brings a touch of luxury to your grooming routine. Order the full set in a handy gift box, or buy the toiletries individually as add-ons to your monthly refill delivery.
