Have you ever thought about whether or not you’re your razor is eco-friendly? Do you just throw it in the bin, nip to the Supermarket and pick up another?
Double edged safety razors are a little bit daunting for women, but if you could have a closer shave and reduced skin irritation all whilst doing your bit for the environment, why would you say no?
The Rose & Thorn double edge safety razor is really not as scary as it looks.
You can even get a starter kit so that you are fully kitted out right from the off. It comes with the razor blade disposal tin (genius idea!) and a pack of 5 Gillette sharp edge razor blades. Convenient or what?!
When mine arrived it was the packaging that stood out for me. Stating the obvious, completely plastic-free… duh! The razor was in a sweet little eco cotton pouch, inside a beautifully designed embossed box. Lots of lovely tissue paper too (which I always reuse). There was a big smile on my face and a quick Twitter message to say how impressed I was with it.
It is just aesthetically pleasing on all levels. I love the minimalistic design and that it’s straight to the point. No fancy colours or design, just one sleek metal razor.
The razor itself is lightweight and there was a handy little guide on the website to show you how to load the blade.
Now on to the shave. At first I was a little bit cautious, I’m sure I’m not the only one! But after a few attempts, it’s safe to say I am SO impressed by how smooth it leaves my legs and it’s true that you don’t need to apply any pressure – this beautiful Rose & Thorne eco razor ticks all of the boxes.
To keep with the eco-friendly theme I am storing mine in an up-cycled large jam jar that I’ve got. I thought it looked pretty cool in the bathroom and helps to dry the razor off.
To be fair, this is an absolute no brainer addition to your skincare regime.
Not only will you help your bank balance (add up how much you spend every time on corporate giant razors… I promise you will be shocked!) but after all, we should be sustainably shaving and changing our blade not our razor.
