This post is in collaboration with the “Female-First Razor Brand” called..
Estrid is a cruelty-free and super stylish razor that supports female empowerment and our beautiful planet at the same time! While many beauty and lifestyle brands choose to still show an outdated, old-fashioned image of women, Estrid is nothing like that. The “female-first” brand shows women of each and every body type and even more important: that it is totally up to you, how you want to shave: Your body, your control!
Also, you may have heard of the “pink tax” and that women often need to pay more than men for the same products? Especially shaving companies mostly aimed at men and ask women to overpay for female razors. And this is exactly why Estrid has been created:
“to make shaving a bit more convenient, and a lot more affordable”.
A VEGAN RAZOR?
You might be asking yourself now – wait, isn’t every razor vegan?! Well, that was my thought as well so I found it even more interesting, that most razor brands actually use animal substances in their strips. Whilst Estrid chose to only include vegan ingredients: aloe vera, shea butter and cocoa butter. Sounds good, right? And it also feels amazing – I definitely don’t want to miss Estrid in my bathroom now!
But that’s not all: the packaging is recyclable and steel-handles make it more sustainable and durable as well! Estrid does not only feel different, they also want to make a difference. For every purchase you make, they donate a portion to the foundation Kvinna till Kvinna, a Swedish organisation that has been working for and supporting women’s rights since 1993 in more than 20 war and conflict-ridden countries in the world! #GirlPower!
Let me introduce you to my new little vegan-friendly friend that was kindly *gifted* by Estrid! I say little, but it actually has a bit of weight to it! Estrid kindly *gifted* me their vegan-friendly starter kit (£7.95) which includes:
💗 Your Razor (Choice of 4 Colours: Peach, Cloud, Blush, Space)
💗 2x 5-Blade Cartridges
💗 Matching Wall Mount
Now I don’t normally shave, but lockdown made me do it, and I have to say that I’m pretty pleased with how silky & smooth my skin feels!
Any type of hair removal has got to be my most hated beauty chores, but shaving is probably the worst!. Doing endless yoga poses in the bath and shower doesn’t exactly make for a relaxing experience. Especially when you have a darker skin tone, and therefore have VERY naturally dark hair. However one thing that can make it a more enjoyable experience is having a razor that is a pleasure to use!
A vegan and cruelty free shaving brand who are changing the razor game! With a ‘shave if you want to’ attitude, and a focus on making a luxury shaving experience accessible to all, prices start at £7.95! I love the product, the branding, and the message:
“𝐀𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫: 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥, 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞, 𝐚𝐦𝐚𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐢𝐭, 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐚 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐝.” – Estrid
MY BODY, MY HAIR, MY CHOICE…
Shaving has to be quick and effective for me. With quite a bit of hair I want to remove on a regular basis, I look for a razor that makes this easy! Being naturally dark haired means that anywhere I have hair, that hair is black. Legs, arms, bikini line, fingers, toes, tummy. Yep. While this body hair is completely natural, I personally would rather remove it! And when I do choose to shave, my new razor of choice is the Estrid razor in Blush.
With my first swipe of the Estrid razor over my calf I was stunned. It literally felt like it was floating along my leg! I have never used a razor that was so smooth and such a joy to shave with before. In addition to this, it left the skin underneath feeling soft and smooth long after I got out the shower!
With a weighted metal handle and in the cutest of colours including Peach (soft orange), Cloud (light grey), Blush (soft pink) or Space (lilac), the Estrid razors are made to be displayed! Arriving with a metal shower wall mount and your choice of refills based on how often you shave, they are simple yet effective! Most razors use animal products to create a smooth gel strip, however Estrid are completely vegan and cruelty free using Aloe Vera and Shea Butter instead – WIN WIN!
The minimalist Scandinavian design process inspired by nature has resulted in fluid and smooth lines — a true bathroom accessory! Estrid razors are made to last, and only the heads need changing. You can sign up to a subscription to have 4 new razor blades delivered every 1, 2 or 3 months for just £9.95 depending on how often you would like them to be delivered to you, & you can cancel at anytime!
Unfortunately at the moment Estrid don’t have an option to send the razor heads back to be recycled. However last year Gilette teamed up with Terracycle to offer a free recycling service for razors and razor heads from any brand. How amazing is that?! On the plus side however, Estrid do offer free, climate compensated shipping with every order!
I am really impressed with both how the Estrid razor is a joy to use, and the moves they are making to be better for the environment as a new brand. This razor is a great addition to my sustainable journey, and I can’t wait for you to try it out!
