It’s summertime, it’s hot, and I’m showing more bare legs. And you know what that means. I have to shave my legs. Overall I prefer shaving my legs for hair removal over waxing. I think I like the convenience of being able to shave my legs whenever I can and can easily do it while I shower. Waxing requires a bit more effort. I have to make sure I go to a reputable salon, it costs more, and I have to dedicate time for it and make an appointment.
Billie Razor Review
If you’ve already heard of Billie, then you know a lot of influencers were sponsored by them. My post is not sponsored. I paid for it with my own money and have no obligation to share except for my own curiosity and seems like you all were curious too on Instagram!
I discovered Billie razor on social media. I would see it all over Instagram. More recently, I’ve seen a lot of Influencers talking about it and being sponsored by Billie Razor. So I became curious if it is really worth the hype. I decided to give their razor a try when my old razor was no longer usable. Especially since I did not want to go to a store to only buy a shaving razor. Ever since coronavirus, I want to make sure every trip to the store is a big trip and worth my time.
So I saw this as a perfect opportunity to try out Billie razors. It gets shipped directly to me and I was surprised by the price.
How Does the Billie Razor Subscription Work
Select Your Razor Starter Kit
The starter kit includes a razor handle, 2 razor blades, and a magnetic holder. There are four different colors to choose from. I went with blush. The starter kit costs only $9.
Select Subscription Frequency
After you select your preferred color, you will select how often you shave. The options are:
- every day
- few times a week
- once a week
How frequently you shave your legs will determine when they’ll deliver a new one. I shave once a week, so they will deliver to me every three months. Every shipment contains 4 razor cartridges.
If at any time you need to modify your subscription / change frequency, you can easily do so by logging into your account and making a change. You have the option to adjust, skip, or cancel. Or you can also email them at [email protected] Personally, I did not need to change my subscription. Ive been using Billie for about 2 months so I’m only on my first shipment.
Cost of Subscription
The cost of each subscription is only $9 with FREE SHIPPING! This is my favorite part because initially I thought Billie razors would cost more than buying at the stores. It turns out Billie is much cheaper (especially since your first purchase comes with 2 blades and a holder). The price is what convinced me to try them out. And overall, I thought they shipped pretty quickly.
In addition to purchasing the starter kit, I also purchased the Razor Travel Case. It’s only $5 and that way I can always take it with me.
No Pink Tax
That’s right no extra fee associated with the cost of the razor. A pink tax is the extra amount of money women pay for their products such as razors, shampoos, tampons, etc. The pink tax can be built into the retail price. Most razor brands have the pink tax. Billie eliminated this extra amount.
What I Like About The Billie Razor
As I mentioned earlier, the price is what convinced me that I should give it a try. It’s only $9 for the entire set with free shipping. And it will only cost $9 for every new shipment going forward. In my opinion, it is cheaper than buying at a store and the quality is way better!
All of Billie’s products are made with clean ingredients and no synthetic fragrance. They use the EWG (Environmental Working Group) standards and ensure these are non-toxic products. You guys know I’m all about safe beauty! Their EWG scores are between 1-2. That’s the safest score to get! There’s no parabens, synthetic dyes, sulfates, cheap foaming agents, etc.
Their razor glides so smoothly on my skin. The razor head has 5 super sharp blades. I got zero knicks and it gives you a very close shave. Overall, I need to shave every week. Now it’s more like every 10 days because of the extra close shave. Wooho!! So to me, that is a huge improvement. I also did not get any razor burn.
Also, the razor blade is rust-free. I switched out my blade after a month and still didn’t see any rust even when it was due for a replacement.
The Billie handle is ergonomic. It is made with a matte rubber back so that it never slips in the shower. I can confirm that so far it has not yet slipped from my hands.
Made For Sensitive Skin
I have sensitive skin and experienced no issues. Billie’s products are specifically made and designed to accommodate people with sensitive skin.
This might sound silly but I love Billie’s razor holder. First of all, no more suctioning the holder to the shower. I hate suction holders because they never last long. It comes with a sticky tab that you apply to the back of the holder and stick to your shower wall. As I mentioned, I have had this for over 2 months and it has not moved at all.
The holder and razor handle have magnets in them so that they can automatically latch on to each other. Again, have never experienced my razor falling off my shower wall yet. It’s amazing!
Is Billie Razor Worth It
So after trying it out for over 2 months, do I think the Billie razors are worth it? 100% it is! I was hesitant at first because every influencer in the world was sponsored by them. But honestly, it lived up to its hype. And you can’t beat the price. It’s $9, free shipping, and ships fairly quickly.
I love that I get the smoothest and closest shave without any knicks, and I only need to shave every 10 days. I can’t imagine using another razor brand. Some of you told me on Instagram that you love their shave cream. So I’m going to add that in my next shipment. Honestly, since their products are all clean, I’m going to try them. Below are their other products.
Have you tried Billie Razor? If so, what did you think of them?
