8 Of The Best Razors For Women

Many of us are missing out on professional hair removal treatments and having to use razors instead. Whether you’re a shaving novice, or a seasoned pro, we’ve scouted out some of the best…

Amazon Solimo Female 5 Blade Razor, £7.84

Unlike some razors, this Amazon best-seller is made with an anti-clog cartridge, so the blades never rust or go blunt. The solid handle is moulded to fit your hand, so it’s comfortable to hold and allows for a precise shave. As for the razor, it uses five blades that cling to the skin for maximum hair removal, while in-built botanical oils keep ingrown hairs and bumps at bay.

BiC Soleil Bella Lady Blade Shaver, £4.99

It’s always good to have some disposable razors handy. These BiC ones are reliable, not to mention affordable. With a lubricated strip, they keep skin smooth, while added coconut milk means even sensitive skin types can use them. While there isn’t much tilt to the head, you can still get a close shave. Four blades reach even the smallest of hairs – fantastic value for money.

Friction Free Shaver (FFS), £9

One of the first subscription shaving boxes, FFS (Friction-Free Shaving) is a monthly service where you pay £9 for the initial razor, then pay monthly for refills. The six-bladed razor head has a curve in the base that contours for a close shave. It’s also easy to hold and manoeuvre, so you get smooth results every time. What’s more, you can personalise your tool with a subtle engraving, and choose between silver or rose-gold for extra style points.

Gilette Venus Snap Portable Razor, £9.99

This is the razor for girls on the go. Despite its smaller size, it performs exactly like a full-size Gillette, but all in a convenient case, with holes in the bottom to prevent water from accumulating. It’s easy to grip, and comes with a refill so you’re not caught out. Best for larger surface areas where you can grab all the hairs in one sweep – this is best used on legs and underarms.

Parker 28L Lavender Women’s Safety Razor, £21.99

Created for those with thick or curly hair, this razor has just one blade that is weighted, so it glides evenly and safely over skin. Having tried it ourselves, we saw zero ingrown hairs or irritation post-use. Another bonus? It’s not throwaway plastic – the heavy, brass material will last for years, while the singular, gentle blade makes it far less likely you’ll cut yourself.

Venus Gillette Embrace Swirl Razor, £11.99

This razor’s unique Flexiball feature makes even those hard-to-reach areas easy to shave, so you get a smooth finish every time. The blades are surrounded by a water-activated serum, too, that helps moisturise the skin and keep irritation at bay. It also comes with two refills for those who find they have to shave often.

Wilkinson Sword Intuition FAB Women’s Razor, £11.99

Aimed at simplifying every woman’s shaving routine, this simple razor can be moved up and down without needing to be lifted from the skin. The bi-directional blades – the top shave up, the bottom shave down – work together for a smooth, close result. Meanwhile, built-in skin guards infused with a moisturising gel significantly reduce the chance of razor burn, too. A host of rave reviews have dubbed it the ‘best and most effective razor’ on the market.

Estrid Razor, £7.95

Just like FFS, Estrid is a monthly subscription that starts from £7.95. That said, you can choose how often you want new blades, so you’re never forced to over spend. Available in four Instagram-chic shades, each razor uses aloe vera and vitamin E to nourish and moisturise, while the weighted steel handle has a rubber underside for a steady grip. What’s more, for every razor you buy, Estrid donates a portion to Kvinna till Kvinna – a Swedish organisation supporting women’s rights in more than 20 conflict-ridden countries.
