THE ALL ROUNDER: Estrid, £7.95

Known for creating quality, long-lasting vegan razors, Estrid also encourages more open conversation around women’s health and body confidence via its social media accounts. Its inventive subscription service means razor heads can be sent as frequently as needed – ensuring commitment to one great-quality tool, and reducing waste in the process. Most importantly, its blades offer an immaculate shave, designed with strips of vitamin E to nourish and moisturise. Plus, the weighted steel handle feels luxe while still being affordable. Finally, Estrid donates a portion of funds to charity – an all-round winner.

THE MOST VERSATILE DESIGN: Grüum Precision Razor Set, £11.25

This mechanical high-performance tool is far from single use – it’s designed to be used over and over. The set contains a metal razor handle, a twin pack of six-blade cartridges and a protective blade cover – all of which are made to create the ultimate shave. With a focus on precision and smoothness, the razor set is crafted using a durable zinc alloy plus platinum-coated blades. The razor heads use perfectly angled blades with optimum spacing to ensure a clog-free experience, fewer drags or pesky snags. Even better, the heads have a 90° pivot which means they can shape the body’s natural contours perfectly to make the process as easy and safe as possible.
