FFS Friction Free Shaving eco-friendly razor subscription review

FFS shaving review

I do love a good subscription, but for me I love one that is useful.  One that allows me to find brands I genuinely love or one that supplies me with something that is convenient and I no longer have to remember to buy, like razor blades.  In this blog post I am going to review the Friction Free Shaving razor subscription box for women, also known as FFS or FFS beauty.  I will also explain how the FFS shaving razor blades are an eco-friendly hair removal option supporting a zero waste lifestyle.

What is FFS?

FFS is a women’s shaving club that provides a razor handle in the first package along with high quality razor blades.  Then as part of a paid subscription plan you can continue to receive replacement razor blades every one or two months.  Personally I use a razor blade more than once so I have my account set to send me a new set of four razors every other month.  This works out cheaper for me and means I change blades every two weeks.

They offer a cheaper plastic handle and cheaper blades, but I’d highly recommended choosing a metal handle in either silver or rose gold and having it engraved with your name!  I chose rose gold and had my name Victoria engraved.  Plus the metal handles come with an even higher quality 6 blade head.

Get a great discount on your first box

They always have a great deal on your first box.  You usually get engraving, a handle and set of blades for a cheaper price than usual.

Then you’ll pay either monthly or every other month to receive a set of four more replacement razor blade heads.  You can skip deliveries at any time, pause or cancel.

Here’s what else is included:

  • Free delivery
  • Cancel anytime
  • Pause whenever you need to
  • Delivery straight to your door
  • In my second package I received a convenient holder which I now hang my razor on in the bathroom.

As an optional extra you can add their pre-shave scrub, shave cream or post-shave scrub to your order. 

Be eco-friendly and support zero waste with FFS

FFS Beauty have a blade recycling scheme so you can collect up your used razor blade heads and send them back for recycling!  This means zero waste from your hair removal and shaving!

I have a box in my bathroom cupboard where I put all my used blades.  Then when I have quite a lot, I will send them back.  I do the same with our toothbrush heads too.  It's really good to find companies with closed loop recycling systems so you prevent throwing bathroom waste like razor blades and toothbrush heads into landfill.

My Friction Free Shaving review

As you can probably guess I’m really pleased with my razor and the convenience of having blades posted to me every other month.  It’s also great to have a high quality razor as before I often picked up cheap plastic throwaway razors which always felt like they dragged on the skin giving me lumps and itchy patches.  The FFS razor blades leave me silky smooth and haven’t irritated my skin at all.

They are also quick at sorting any problems.  The first razor handle I received unfortunately had a misshapen bit of plastic so the blade head wouldn’t stay attached.  They quickly responded to me and sent out a replacement handle immediately.  The second handle was perfect and I’ve been using it a few months with great results.

I’ve had no problems with the blade heads themselves, they don’t rust quickly, they don’t scratch my legs to bits and I’ve not had any nicks since using them.  I get four replacement blades every two months for £9.  That’s £4.50 a month for my shaving efforts.  Not bad.

Plus I am collecting my razor blade heads for their recycling scheme so I don't have to throw anything in landfill!

July 2020 update!

Just to let you know, I am STILL using this subscription service after almost two years!  Since I signed up, I also signed up my husband and he got a silver handle.  Now we just share one subscription for the blades as we don't get through many.  We are sent blades every two months.

Our handles are still perfect and we are always impressed with the high quality of the razor blades.

Still highly recommended.
