Since Friction Free Shaving launched their two latest products last month to work along side their Award Winning Shave Cream and unbelievable razors, I thought it was only right that I published a round up of the the three-step process in one place. If you’ve already seen, I shared three individual, in-depth reviews of the Pre-Shave Scrub, Shave cream and finally the Post Shave Balm – all of which work together alongside my Rose razor to give me that perfect smooth shave.
If you’re new here and you’re like WTF? then I can assure you, you won’t be saying FFS (ha, ha, ha!) in a few more minutes. Stick with me BUT if you’re already sold and can’t wait any longer, you can sign up with 25% off your first order by clicking HERE or entering the DISCOUNT CODE: CJ7UED at checkout.
Before we get into this, for those that don’t know what I’m on about (you must be new)… Friction Free Shaving “is the first razor delivery service designed exclusively for women.” They provide you with a hassle free service delivering high quality razors to your doorstep every month (or every other month if you prefer). A fantastic subscription for those that have found they’re spending way too much money purchasing supermarket razors. One of the biggest issues with women’s shaving is that most of us don’t realise how soon our razors need changing and thats where FFS come in.
Girls, the thing is… Holding onto your old supermarket for ‘just another week until I go shopping again‘ is doing far more harm than you think. Even if you decide not to go ahead with the FFShaving subscription (also not a good move) – then still take my advice. The longer you use your old razor, the more likely you’re gonna’ get irritation and rashes. A big NO NO! You don’t want to put your own body at risk by bacteria harbouring in your blades and openly allowing yourself to use something thats bad for your skin. This is exactly why you receive 4 new blades every month, as FFS love to encourage you (and they even send out weekly email reminders) to change your blade to prevent any nasty rashes and irritations. So whether you’re using FFS or high street razors, make sure you make the right move and change your blades often. From personal experience and being lazy in the supermarket, this is how handy Friction Free Shaving has become for me in my life. I’m now in a regular routine of changing my blades every Sunday from my fresh clean blades being delivered through my letterbox and I’m not spending nearly half as much money on them as I used to.

Men have had their own little 3-step process when it comes to their shaving routine for years now; so Friction Free Shaving have designed three products that work smoothly (ha, do you get it?… smoothly) together for us ladies.
FIRST STEP: PRE-SHAVE SCRUB
Friction Free Shaving’s first pre shave scrub is finally available and its packed with Manuka Honey, Almond Milk and Walnut Scrub – made to exfoliate your skin which attacks ingrown hairs and promote skin rejuvenation leaving you with incredibly soft pins. Not only is it amazing for your skin but it soothes, nourishes and prevents red (irritating) razor bumps.
“Exfoliating the skin before shaving helps to remove dead skin cells and provide a smoother surface to shave on. Our walnut scrub is a gentle and all natural exfoliate made using the husk of walnuts. It helps to release ingrown hairs, reduce shaving spots, unblock pores and lift dead skin cells for smoother, clearer skin.”
Since you’ve probably already figured out, the PRE-SHAVE scrub is designed for you to use before shaving with your Friction Free Shaving Razor. Using a pre-shave scrub/exfoliator allows you to get the closest shave possible as exfoliating before shaving removes the dead layer of skin cells; allowing your razor to reach your skin and remove all those hairs. I don’t suggest using an exfoliator after shaving due to your freshly shaved skin being more sensitive, using a product like this after would cause irritation and redness which you definitely don’t want.

SECOND STEP: SHAVE CREAM
“Designed specifically for women and packed with moisturising Manuka honey, Shea butter and coconut oil, our shave cream gives your skin the treatment it deserves. Its unique ‘cationic’ formula reduces friction so you get a closer shave and smoother skin. The transparent application provides maximum visibility and offers a new sense of control and closeness.”
The shave cream is not like the usual shaving “foams” you’re probably thinking of when we talk about using a shaving cream. It literally comes as a transparent cream which is so much more beneficial than you could ever think. I remember before I started using FFS razors, I used to use a cheap shaving foam from the supermarket that would clog up my razor blades and I wouldn’t be able to tell properly whether I had shaved the whole area or not. It looks like its creating a path to show you where you’ve already shade but it actually doesn’t work as simply as that, because if your razor is getting clogged up with cheap shaving foam then its not removing all of the hairs on your legs as it should be. Along side it being a transparent cream, the ingredients of this shaving cream are incredible!

THIRD & FINAL STEP: POST SHAVE BALM
“Our post-shave balm cools, refreshes and moisturises – helping to restore your skin’s natural moisture balance and reducing irritation. Blended with Manuka honey for its anti-inflammatory, repairing and moisturising qualities and cocoa butter which is high in antioxidants, it provides deep hydration to soothe and condition your skin.”
Since Post Shave Balms that already exist are mostly aimed at men – us women may not know what the benefits of using one are. I was massively surprised to find out how amazing Post Shave Balm’s can be for our skin. For me, using it on my freshly shaved legs has kept them feeling moisturised and irritation free. It also helps me avoid feeling dry, soothes my legs after putting it through the shaving process and ensures my pores are clean and bacteria free. The ingredients in this particular product help our skin especially if we’ve accidentally cut and bled whilst shaving (it happens to the best of us, girls please tell me you’ve wrongly judged and moved your leg too quickly before, leading to a nasty little scratch… this luckily hasn’t happened to me half as often as it used to before I started using FFS but STILL!). The Post Shave Balm ensures my legs are happy and ready to hit the red carpet at any given time… well, that’s if I was called to walk the red carpet, HA!

ROUND UP, ROUND UP!
I’ve not gone into my thoughts and review on the products mentioned above since they all have their own dedicated blog post sharing an in-depth chat into the ingredients in each product, how and when I use it and exactly what I think to it so make sure you take a look at those if you take a particular interest into one or all of the products above. When subscribing to FFS you don’t have to opt into having any of these products, its all by choice completely.
I absolutely love each and every one of these products and use them in my daily shower routine. I genuinely could not live without them when I’m shaving anymore! I can’t stress enough how well these products all work alongside each other, all of the reviews speak for themselves. If you’re interested in Friction Free Shaving I have a whole bunch of posts you can check out after this to decide whether its for you or not.
