Hullo there alley cats!
I have a pretty darn exciting product to share with you today. One that involves what has been a great frustration in my life. One that involves time, money, dedication and persistence. Of course by now you know I am talking about shaving.
*BTW this post is not sponsored. Nor did I receive anything for free from this company. They do not know who I am (sadly).
For years, I have struggled with the search for the perfect razor. And to me, the perfect razor should not cost an arm and a leg like they currently do.
I just want a normal razor that works well and isn’t 34938 dollars. It does not need to be cute, or feature “7 contour blades wrapped in glistening shea butter with angel tears”. It just needs to do what a freakin’ razor is supposed to. And spare me the godforsaken PINK TAX.
So when I saw an ad for this company called Billie, I was instantly intrigued. To be fair, the ads do feature hairy-legged and armpitted women, literally brushing their body hair so it is easy to be shocked by it a little. It is also funny that a company that very clearly encourages women to let their body hair grow wild and free SELLS razors. But hey, it got my attention.
Billie also sells body care products like shave cream, lotion and “sudsy” body wash (which smells like grapefruit and is ah-mazing) but the bread and butter is definitely the razors. But what made me ultimately place an order was 100% due to the price tag – a mere $9 for the razor and a set of refills. PLUS they come in fun colors. PLUS they offer a subscription service where you can automatically be sent a set of refills depending on how often you want them. AND there is no contract (cancel anytime) AND you can easily skip a shipment.
Why isn’t this company paying me?! Oh, my life.
I placed my order for the coral shade and selected the every-other-month refill delivery option. One week later, I had my $9 starter pack in hand.
Packaging is totally amazing and hipstery and here is what was inside:
From left to right: razor holder, razor, razor cartridge.
One more time for the packaging/logo lover in me!
The razor comes with one cartridge attached and one additional.
I had to snap a photo of the packing for the tiny razor holder for the shower because well, duh.
The razor design is awesome. I love the color, the weight and design of the handle, and the size.
Now onto the performance….
I was wary of how this sucker would hold up performance-wise to it’s more expensive counterparts and was VERY surprised. The blades are super sharp and there are 5 of them so it definitely gives a very close shave. The razors are encased in aloe soap that did not bother my sensitive skin one bit. And I was able to navigate everywhere I usually do with ease.
I REALLY LOVE THIS RAZOR.
I do not have one negative thing to say about it and highly recommend getting one. That is all!
