(This product was sent to me for review)

Getting the perfect shave can be a challenge and if you don't get the legs right people to tend to notice. With the huge range of razors out there that it's hard to know which one is quite right for you. I want a great shave but not at the expense of the environment, sorry legs but I have to have my priorities in order and you come second when it comes to shaving that's why I was super excited to try the Bambaw safety razor!

Millions of razors are thrown away each year, according to the EPA, in the USA alone an estimated 2 Billion plastic razors are thrown away each year. So many people don't know how they are meant to recycle them, or it's too much hassle keeping them all aside to send back to the company for recycling if the company even offers such a thing. Only having to worry about replacing blades rather than adding to the tonnes of plastic crap that ends up in landfill every year. Bambaw's razors are completely recyclable, the blades can be recycled back into other metal products and the handle is bamboo and will compost.

Bambaw safety razors, priced at £16.99 a razor is an incredibly beautiful bamboo sustainable razor, they have a very weighty body and I can't get over how gorgeous the bamboo handle is. The blades are super easy to change you just wind the head off the handle and slip a new blade in and presto you are good to go again.

At first, I was nervous about using the Bambaw razor as I could see the blade more than the plastic disposable razors but after shaving the first leg and not seeing one nick or scrape that I was so accustomed to I continued to shave the other and the results are amazing... smoother than they have ever been and I love it! I would recommend that you make sure the razor is not left wet, dry after each use as to prevent any rusting or water damage to the bamboo handle.

Overall I am really impressed with Bambaw's Safety Razors, they are very affordable, I would be happy to pay another £10 on top of what they are asking for these razors. You can see and feel the quality the razors and I honestly believe I will never go back to disposables again after having experienced Bambaw for myself.
