Summer is approaching, the warmer weather is here, and it’s time to get those pins shorts ready! Now, let me start by saying that body hair is completely natural, and you don’t have to shave if you don’t want to. Embrace your body in whatever way makes you feel comfortable. For me, though, fuss-free pins and a bit of fake tan are my go-to for feeling confident enough to wear the damn shorts for a run. I’ve been using the award winning Estrid razor for a number of years now, (I pay for a subscription) and here are my thoughts.


Why I Chose Estrid


Estrid is a brand that has been creating a buzz on social media for good reasons. Their razors, designed for women, come in a wide range of colors to match every personality and bathroom aesthetic.


One of the reasons I wanted to try Estrid is their commitment to sustainability. The brand is cruelty-free and partners with animal welfare organizations. The razor handles are made from durable, high-quality materials, reducing the need for disposable plastic razors. Additionally, their packaging is eco-friendly, and they have a recycling program for used blades.


Subscription Service


One of the standout features of Estrid is its convenient subscription service. For a busy person like me, this is a game-changer. You can set up a plan to have new razor blades delivered right to your door at intervals that suit your shaving habits—every month, every second month, or every third month. So you’ll never run out of fresh blades. It’s one less thing to remember on your shopping list.


The Shaving Experience


The handle has a good weight and ergonomic design, making it comfortable to hold and easy to manoeuvre. The five-blade cartridges are surrounded by a vegan lubricating strip, which helps to protect your skin from irritation and leaves it feeling silky smooth. I found that it provided a close shave without any nicks or cuts, even on tricky areas like knees and ankles. My only complaint is the suction on the holder. If it falls off your shower screen overnight, it will wake you in a blind panic!


If you’re looking for a new razor to get your legs summer-ready, I highly recommend giving Estrid a try. Remember, shaving is a personal choice, and it’s all about what makes you feel confident and comfortable.
