Working full-time, running a blog and trying to maintain a half decent social life is exhausting and if you’re anything like me, pamper nights and time to myself come very far and few between falling asleep eating tea or staying up ’til early hours of the morning wrapping presents.. it is the festive season after all! After spotting FFS (Friction Free shaving) over on Debra’s blog, I knew this was something I needed to get my hands on.
FFS offer quality razors that are sent straight to your doorstep once a month.. the first brand to create a metal razor specifically designed for women – yaas. You’re given a choice of 3 different ‘Shaviours’, one of which is blooming ROSE GOLD. I repeat.. Rose Gold!! You then get 4 razors sent every month, one for each week for just £5 which is a complete bargain in my eyes. It’s recommended that you change your razor every 5-7 uses so it works out perfectly however, if you wanted to use the razors over a longer period there’s also the option to pause your subscription. Additions to this package also include their Pre-Shave Scrub, award winning Shave Cream and Post Shave Balm which come at a small price of just £6 each!
“Oh. My. God. Wow.” are the words I’m sure I uttered at my work desk when I opened a parcel containing my FFS Gift Box. This packaging is by far the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, I couldn’t stop looking at it! With the box, I received lots of little leaflets that honestly had me creasing. Isn’t it just the best when a brand have a sense of humour? I felt like I could relate with this brand already and I hadn’t even got to the products yet!
‘I’VE GOT A ROSE GOLD RAZOR HEAD WITH MY NAME ENGRAVED ON IT!!!!’ I shouted over in excitement to my dad’s desk (sorry dad) as he looked back at me completely glassy-eyed wondering what the hell I was rambling on about. Now, this isn’t just a razor, this is a friction free, rose gold, engraved little beauty that I’m positive is about to change my life for the better. The box also contained a shower holder, blade cover, 4 blades, the Pre-Shave Scrub, Shave Cream and the Post Shave Balm which for £25 (with contents worth £32) is an absolute steal, if I do say so myself.
“Hello you. I’m Rose, the world’s first metal razor designed especially for women. I’ve got a lubricating Vitamin E strip and 6 stainless steel blades, which are diamond coated to help me glide across your skin effortlessly. I can’t wait to light up your bathroom with my rose gold finish, while my special bikini blade is primed to tighten up the edges of any hairs you’re keen to keep. Let’s face it, I was made for you.” -FFS.
Please excuse my (slightly gross) ignorance, but I have never changed my razor blades every week so this is going to be a huge learning curve for me. By over using your blades, you can experience rashes and little bumps from shaving, which is obviously something that I’d like to avoid at all costs! If you can’t already tell, I’m really, really excited to try this out and I’ll be writing up a full review once I’ve tried all of these products out fully!
