Back in December, I attended my first ever blogger event in Birmingham. It was needless to say I was absolutely terrified; I didn’t know what to expect, who would be there and if I would make a fool of myself.
Now, it really wasn’t that bad, everyone was lovely and I settled in after we made our first drink (it was a cocktail making class). If you want to read up about what I got up to at the event, have a read here. I went through all the items gifted in the goodie bag on my Instagram stories a few weeks after, it’s still saved on my highlights if you fancy a watch.
Since then I have had the chance to try out the razor we were gifted in our goodie bags, so I have finally got around to writing a review which I’m going to be 100% honest with. So let’s take a look at ‘Rose’ the aptly named razor from Friction Free Shaving…
Yes I know, it’s an extremely aesthetically pleasing razor. I’m aware some of you are probably sick of that rose gold hype but I am so not over it, sorry (not sorry!) Who cares if half of your friends are onto another colour scheme if you love all things rose gold.. step right this way. Just to mention, there is another handle ‘Silvia’ and yes it is silver so if rose gold isn’t your bag then fear not, there are other options!
Reading the reviews of FFS and hearing what Amber and Melissa had to say is one thing, but trying out the products for yourself and giving your own opinion is another. It’s amazing hearing rave reviews of how fantastic something is but that same product may not work for you, so I always advise testing it yourself (unless the review is absolutely bloody awful – I think I’d believe that one!)
Now I’ve rambled on for a bit, I better introduce you to the wonderful Rose:
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.
- 4 German-engineered razor refills per month
- 6 diamond-coated steel blades per head
- 1 styling bikini blade built into the back of the cartridge
- Full 90-degree pivot head contours the body’s curves
- Weighted handle for optimal control and comfort
- Head turning rose gold finish, with chrome plating to prevent rust (source)
My thoughts: At first glance, the razor is very pretty but does pretty mean it’s going to work or will it end up on the shelf just ‘looking nice’? I can confirm I will be sticking to using this over my usual razor for a number of reasons. Firstly, the look is extremely deceiving, I thought it was going to be heavy and awkward to use but it’s the complete opposite; the slightly heavier model makes it easier to grip and isn’t flimsy, neither did I have any blade escaping disasters!
To add to this, the Vitamin E strip is perfect because it limits any sore spots you may get from your average shaver and helps it to glide easily as you shave. Let’s just say it gets the job done, no faffing about, no red marks and no disasters.
Fellow shavers, you have my word!
