I’ve always been quite dangerous when it comes to shaving my legs and have often found myself with razor burns and cuts all over them, which really doesn’t make for a good summer look.
I’ve tried electric shavers and found they leave my legs feeling bumpy and un-smooth, supermarket and branded razors have often left me looking as though I had a fight with the razor and sadly the razor won. I’ve tried shaving foams, creams and many lotions and potions to help me achieve a smooth cut free leg but all to no avail.
In the end I went wth the realisation that it was my own ineptitude that meant I was not to be trusted with anything other than hair removal cream.
That was until I noticed social media bubble up with excitement over FFS, now I have to admit I was often to be found mumbling FFS after shaving but not for the reason I now find myself talking about FFS for.
Friction Free Shaving is a monthly/bimonthly subscription service with SHAVIOURS costings £3, £5 and £7 depending on the type of blade you require.
Being slightly cautious and wondering how much damage I could create with a five blade I found the pretty pink triple bladed Frankie pullling me in with its cries of ‘pick me , you’ve never met a razor like me’ and although the razors voice may have been my mind playing tricks on me, everything it said was true.
When my first box came through the letterbox I was excited to see what the fuss was about. Inside the box I found the pretty pink handle waiting with four blades marked Week One – Week Four.
*Next months subscription will contain four blades and a mystery gift.
I added Week One’s blade to the handle and went off to attempt my mission.
Armed with my shaviour and a shop branded shaving foam I went in pursuit of smooth legs…..
and I FOUND THEM!
I don’t know whether the FFS comes with magical fairies who help glide the blade or whether it was the fact that for the first time I had a substantially weighted shaver but I left the bathroom with smooth legs that were cut and hair free.
