AD- I was gifted an Estrid Start Kit in exchange for my honest thoughts
I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited for Summer! I love it when it starts to get warmer, and everything just seems a bit brighter when you can head out to the pub garden after work, or get a bit of sun on the weekends.
During the Summer months, I love to shave my legs- and that’s my choice! So when Estrid contacted me and asked if I’d like to try one of their razors- the answer was a no-brainer.
In this post, find out about Estrid Razors and how I’m going to use my new start kit to get ready for Summer!
Who are Estrid?
Estrid are a vegan-friendly razor company who specialise in creating ethical razors that people love to use!
They have a fantastic ethos, using their brand to promote the idea that it’s okay to be hairy- and it’s okay to be smooth too. Shaving should always be a choice- and whether you want to shave or not that’s absolutely fine.
I love their body positive mantra, and they recently featured one of my favourite skin/body positive Instagram influencers on their account. From encouraging confidence for all body sizes, to showing that it’s okay to be hairy or smooth, I’ve admired their social media channels for a while.
All of their packaging also promotes body positivity and confidence- and it’s also completely recyclable (and gorgeous too).
Getting ready for summer with Estrid
I’m ashamed to say that I normally just buy cheap, plastic razors from Boots. There’s nothing wrong with the razors I’ve used, but they don’t last very long- and they definitely don’t always give me a clean shave without any cuts.
I absolutely loved using my Estrid razor- and I’m going to use this razor to stay on top of shaving while I wear short dresses and shorts in the Summer.
My start kit came with a metal razor (fit with a blade all ready to go), an extra blade, a holder for my shower and some cute body positive stickers that I’m going to put on one of my notebooks!
This razor was amazing to use- and now that I know what I’ve been missing I’m never going back. Unlike disposable plastic razors that I’ve used in the past, this razor moved with me. It moved around the contours of my leg as I shaved, and I didn’t cut myself once!
This razor felt smooth against my skin, and it gave me a really clean shave. Normally I have to go over my leg a couple of times to get all the hairs, but this razor got them all the first time over- and I’m sure that will be the case for the first couple of times I use it.
I’ve not tried the razor under my arms yet, but I think the way it bends will help with those tricky corners where I normally cut myself by accident.
As well as getting my legs out during summer, I also regularly go swimming- and I love to stay on top of my shaving when I can. I love the Estrid branding, and I love the message that it’s okay whether I shave or not.
I also love that can keep buying the razor blades whenever I need new ones (which will work out cheaper than buying a disposable razor each time).
I would really recommend Estrid razors if you’re looking for a long-lasting razor with fantastic values behind it. It comes in adorable packaging and everything in the start kit is vegan.
I agree with Estrid- all bodies are beautiful and they should be celebrated!
