Friction Free Shaving Subscription Service Review


If you’re anything like me, you barely have time to shave your legs (or underarms!) for a night out, let alone remember to regularly change your razor blades?! So when I noticed that the UK’s first monthly shaving subscription service were looking for bloggers to review for them, I was really interested in how useful I would find it!

The lovely people over at Friction Free Shaving agreed to send me a razor and a months’ worth of new razors to try out. They believe that busy people, like me, do not change their razor blades often enough, causing bacteria to build up in the blade over time, leading to skin irritation. I have relatively sensitive skin and I’m always aware when I have been using my razor blade for too long as it causes a rash or irritation especially under my arms. I never think about changing my blades until I get to this point as, if I’m honest, it’s not at the top of my priority list however I do find it frustrating when I get to the shop and the blades seem to cost a small fortune. It does put me off changing them as regularly as I should do!


The Friction Free Shaving subscription service offers 3 different razor handles to choose from (which start from £5) and each one can also be engraved with your own message! Once chosen, you are sent out refills straight to your door on a monthly basis, in a simply designed, recyclable cardboard box. You can change your preferences or cancel at any time. I was sent the ‘Rose’ razor which has been designed with 6 diamond-coated steel blades per head. As soon as I opened up the box I could tell it was a really good quality razor. My previous razor is lightweight and I can’t really tell when the blades need changing. Also the razor itself goes a bit funny after a while however; I love this Friction Free razor!

As well as this you can also choose to add the pre shave scrub, shave cream, and post shave balm to your box. I absolutely love these products as I never use anything normally and can definitely see the benefits! The pre shave scrub exfoliates your skin leaving it ready to be shaved. The shave cream reduces friction between skin and blade so as to give a closer and smoother shave and finally the post shave cream cools, refreshes and moisturisers your legs leaving them feeling ready for the day ahead!

The shaver itself is lovely and weighty so feels great when shaving with it. It leaves my skin feeling really smooth and gives me a much closer, cleaner shave than I’m used to. As someone with sensitive skin, this is really important for me as I struggle to get a nice smooth shave unless my blade is brand spanking new. The Friction Free shaving razors eliminate this problem as the blades are new and ready to go when I am! I love the design and the fact I no longer have to even give blades a second thought, I am an absolute convert! I have immediately replaced my old razor and I will not be going back!


With free postage and packaging, there is nothing to dislike about Friction Free Shaving, they have got it completely right! For such a small monthly cost, you cannot go wrong. As a busy mum, I need things like this to be done for me so I don’t need to worry or even think about them! As soon as I use my last blade next week, I will be subscribing as I honestly can’t see why anyone wouldn’t!

    I use hubby’s razor and blades because I never think of picking up my own when out shopping as it’s all about getting things for kids and hubby. I really need to practise self care more and so glad to find this review as never heard of it before and will be subscribing asap. Thanks x

    Looks like a good razor. I use a fresh razor every time I shave, but I buy disposables so don’t have the ones with the replaceable heads. Great review and love the name of this product, FFS! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

      I know I love the name too! Think its great! They really have a great idea there and for someone like me, who doesn’t change blades very often, its something I will definitely use 🙂

    Now this is interesting. A shaving service for women?? I’ve reviewed many for men but not heard of one for women but it makes complete sense. That razor looks v high quality. Nice review. #BinkyLinky
