This week I've been trying out a subscription box with a difference - friction free shaving sent direct to your door. Because, if there's anything I hate, it's shaving. It's time consuming, often painful, and costs a fortune in disposables. And, yet, I'm not quite radical enough to say to hell with it and go au natural.
So, as a happy medium, I figured I'd try out FFS: the UK's first razor delivery service designed for women. When you sign up you get to choose between a rose gold or silver razor with four sets of blades, whether or not you want it engraved, and what extras - if any - you want included. After that first month you get regular deliveries of four heads (each with six diamond-coated steel blades) for £9, monthly or every other depending on how often you shave, again with the option to add extras.
I went for the rose gold, and had a couple of coupon codes at the ready to get a free gift and a post-shave balm. I also got the handle engraved with my initials which makes it look very fancy! In fact, the presentation of the whole thing was really nice, and each item is good quality.
The real test, of course, is how well it deals with the job it was designed to do... I tried it out for the first time today and I'm happy to report that the answer is excellently! Seriously, it's the best razor I've ever used, and I've tried out pretty much all the major brands (including the mens') over the years.
If you fancy trying Friction Free Shaving out yourself, you can get a razor and your first set of blades for just £9 at the moment. If you use my referral code - VY58IX - you can get free engraving worth £6. Even better, you can also use a separate promo code - try HEALTH8 or CARE8 for a free gift - and go through Quidco or Topcashback to get 25% cashback too. :)
