UpCircle Safety Razor - Cream
Switching to a safety razor has been one of my FAVE plastic free swaps yet! It saves money, so much waste and gives the smoothest shave whilst looking stunning in your bathroom!
If this is your first time switching to a safety razor then be prepared... to be amazed!! The quality of the shave you get with a safety razor is incredible and once you get over 'the fear' you'll wonder why you didn't switch before!
Just check out my Instagram for so many people raving about making the swap!
- x1 Chrome Cream Razor
- x2 Razor Blades
- Cardboard Box
CHANGING THE BLADE
Included with this razor are x2 blades but you can buy replacement packs of blades on my site too! It's easy to change too:
- Unscrew handle
- Remove the top part of the razor
- Slot in the new blade
- Screw back together
- tip - make sure the grooved part of the top of the razor is facing up!
MY TOP TIPS
- Don't apply force when shaving - These are heavier than a normal razor so you really just need the lightest touch
- Angle correctly - This will take some getting used to but use trial & error to make sure the hair is being cut, when you get it right you'll have the smoothest shave ever!
- Use a good shaving soap - This will stop any shaving rash as you need to give a good barrier for the blade to glide!
- Start with your legs - When you're then super confident and no longer scared, move onto EVERYWHERE ELSE!
THE BENEFITS OF SAFETY RAZORS
- YOU SAVE MONEY - Think about how many razors you've bought over your lifetime, plus the blades that go on them are so expensive! When you switch to a safety razor you are buying once and the blades are about Â£3 for a pack of 5 which will last months!
- ZERO PLASTIC PACKAGING - Not only are 'normal' razors not designed to last but the sheer amount of plastic packaging on the razor and the blade packs is just insane! By buying one of the brands I stock you can be rest assured that they are 100% plastic free packaging and they are sent to me plastic free too!
Smooth shave, feels great and looks great!
Ive bought a number of safety razors now to gift to friends, this one is particularly good as a gift because of the lovely box. The extra blades inside mean it will last possibly a year and the cream colour is swish
I love this. Super easy to use and looks so great. Honestly one of the easiest swaps you’ll make. I debated it for ages and needn’t have. I was careful the first time I used it but now it’s as easy as a plastic one. I use it with some delicious Wild Sage soap!
Easy to use, you don’t need much to get a good hold and it lasts a couple of days with just a water refresh needed! Been using for three years and haven’t looked back!
Lovely head towel. Does dry my hair quickly and isn’t soaked after. The towel seems to be super absorbent. Very impressed. Always lovely to order from Beth at Plastic Freedom. Excellent customer service and she’s so responsive on instagram. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It’s first time I buy Zao lipstick and over browser it took me a while to choose the colour. I’m pleased with the colour though. I got the red orange 464, I am Mediterranean starchy skinned and it looks natural on me. I also like the consistency and texture on my lips, I can’t stand neither too dry or too greasy lipsticks and that hit right.
This bag has made my travel wishes come true in every way! I’m a touring musician and have needed a gig bag to sit on top of my suitcase for so long. I’ve purchased a few other ‘eco’ brands but nothing does the job. Then comes along Baggu! It’s large, structured enough to hold shape but soft enough to pack away into a pouch! You can still carry it separately with the brilliant long padded handles.
It slots through the suitcase handles and best of all is made of recycled materials. Travel dreams come true. Thank you!
This TanOrganic Moisterising serum is one of best on the market - lovely fresh scent of lemon. Thank you
A little goes a long way with this moisturiser, it's going to last me at least 6 months! The scent is lovely but it stays strong for quite a while, so something to keep in mind if you're looking for a more delicate scented lotion. Also really lightweight and not greasy at all
Very pleased this worked on our dirty dishcloths. I think it might have converted my husband to wean himself off horrible-smelling chlorine bleach.
This conditioner bar took a while to adjust to and initially made my scalp a little itchy but after a few weeks, I adjusted and my hair has been well conditioned. It is easily applied and the bar is a good shape, meaning you can get an even coverage. I will stick with this bar and hope to see evidence of growth in my fine hair as time goes on.
I love these. They have lovely scents and make you feel clean and fresh for the day ahead.
These are great dryer balls, made from waste material and biodegradable. They are much quieter than previous kinds I have used, and do not give off the odour that sheep's wool ones do. These are perfect and very effective.
Really great will be buying more. Very few ingredients that are gentle and good for sensitive skin and microbiome. May be needing to use a little more than other brands but with all the chemicals and risk of irritation are definitely not worth it! Thanks for making something so natural and gentle that can be used with condoms. Smells really good and aloe vera is good for you down there :))
It's going to be a relief not avoiding buying a drink at an event to avoid plastic
Have tried lots of shampoo bars over the years so though I’d give this a try after all the hype. I’ve been using it for 10 days (3 washes) my hair feels silky and smooth, lathers really well. No residue on hair. Am waiting to see the long term results for more hair growth/fuller hair. Give it a go
It is my first sex toy and it was a total suprise: functional, easy to use, discreet and it's different rythms are perfect for different moods.....
These were great Epsom salts - did as they are meant to. Plastic Freedom provide an excellent service.
