This Women’s Razor Is My New Holy Grail Shaving Tool

Ladies, I’ve already told you about my strawberry legs, but I’ll continue to indulge your morbid curiosity about my body hair and bumpy skin by talking about my shaving problems. 

My hair is crazy thick, and I’m not just talking about the hair on my head — I mean the hair all over my entire body. When I was really young and afraid of shaving I tried every hair removal cream on the market. None of them worked because my hair was simply too thick. 

I also tried all the razors out there. The only ones that even kind of worked were men’s razors. For years I settled for shaving with men’s disposable razors — they were cheap enough that I could toss them after every couple shaves, and sharp enough that they did a fairly good job of removing my hair.

Recently, though, I decided it was time for an upgrade.


My Review of Billie Razors

I looked into Dollar Shave Club and Billie and decided to go with Billie. I got my starter kit, which included the handle, 2 razors, and the magnetic holder, for $9, and I set up my refill schedule (4 razors for $9) to be delivered every 2 months.

First I want to talk about the holder, because that thing seriously is magic. You know that problem with other razors where if you put them in the holder even slightly askew, they fall? Yeah, not with Billie’s — it’s magnetic, so I just place my razor on the holder and it’s never fallen down once.

Now, for the shaving experience. It’s great. Billie has a commercial I’ve seen dozens of times where a woman shaves her armpits in one swipe. I doubted that would be the case for me since, again, my hair is crazy thick. But when I tested my razor for the first time and my hair came off in a single swipe, I was sold.

Then I shaved my legs with the razor, and I’m not joking when I say I got the best shave of my entire life. But even besides the amazing shave, I love that Billie is a company targeted toward women. They were determined to do away with the pink tax so often applied to razors, and really, how could I say no to a cheap, effective razor delivered to my door on a set schedule? It’s a no-lose situation, IMO.

Billie also supports Black and AAPI-owned companies, which I love, and they have “zero-tolerance for racism and systemic oppression.” To make matters even better, their products (which go beyond just razors to include shave cream, lip balm, dry shampoo, and more) are all clean.
