Making the change from disposable razors and razor heads to a metal razor will dramatically cut down your plastic use throughout your lifetime! Switching to a safety razor has been one of my FAVE plastic free swaps yet. It saves money, so much waste and gives the smoothest shave whilst looking stunning in your bathroom!
If this is your first time switching to a safety razor then be prepared… to be amazed! The quality of the shave you get with a safety razor is incredible and once you get over ‘the fear’ you’ll wonder why you didn’t switch before!
You do not need to apply pressure when using this razor, just hold the handle in your fingertips, and let the weight of the razor head glide over your skin, giving you the closest shave and the smoothest skin.
Even for the more intimate zones of your body, these razors do the trick in a gentle way! We recommend using our gentle foaming shaving soap for optimal results.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
- 1 bamboo safety razor
- 1 Astra razor blade
- 1 In-depth digital user manual
Included with this razor is 1 blade but you can buy replacement packs of blades on the shop too! It’s easy to change too:
- Unscrew handle
- Remove the top part of the razor
- Slot in the new blade
- Screw back together
tip – make sure the grooved part of the top of the razor is facing up!
The zero-waste razors use one single blade made from stainless steel, so the blades are easily recyclable! Please do check with your local recycling point for information about recycling the blades!
How often the blades need to be replaced depends on shave frequency and hair type, this can vary from a few weeks to months. Double edge safety razor blades are economical and can be bought in most supermarkets or online. We offer refill razor blades too!
