Got this as a gift, and it was perfect! Razor: The weight is just right and balanced to get a great handle on your shave, and for any part of the body. This means it takes curves like butter, and leaves no razor burn, no ingrown hairs, and no nicks. I thought there would be a much larger learning curve going from disposable 2-3 razor plastic and disposable cartridge heads to this double edge safety razor, but turns out it is basically the same. You might want to start slower just to get used it, but otherwise, especially if you've been shaving for a few years already, it's an easy and seamless switch. Soap: I've used it both with and without the soap, and would say the soap makes the razor simply glide across your skin like skates on ice (smooth!!), allows for an even closer shave, and leaves you feeling fresh and ready to take on the day. The smell - I got the west coast bar - is also a nice and invigorating addition!
Hi Erick - it's great to hear that the Just Shave bundle is a great gift! Switching to a safety razor can take a little bit to adjust but it's totally worth it! Also we're glad that you're enjoying the west coast breeze bar as well!
I love the razor, it's quite hefty and feels very durable. I've been using it for 2 months now and still love it. I get a close shave without damaging my skin. I'm prone to getting razor burn and often got nicked while using disposable/5 blade razors. I think I've gotten maaaaaybe 3 nicks since I've switched and zero razor burns! That's a huge bonus for me. The shave bar lathered very nicely but didn't last too long. To be fair, I dohave course leg hair and shave often. Thankfully my bar of soap worked just as well to get the shaving job done! The razor blades last a reasonably long time as well. I've decided to use the tin that my shave bar came in as a used blade bank.
Hi Julie - we're so stoked that you're loving our Just Shave Bundle! So happy for you that it works well and that you're making an impact on your plastic consumption. We're grateful!
I was surprised how easy the razor was to use. I was worried it would have more of a learning curve but it is basically the same as using disposable or cartridge razors. I wouldn’t say it is a closer shave but it is comparable and gets around curvy places like knees, ankles and armpits just as well as a cartridge. I haven’t had any razor burn either. The kit overall might be unnecessary. It’s a pretty small bar of shave soap and my normal bar of soap works just as well for shaving.
Hi Heahter - thank you so much for your detailed review!! Happy you're enjoying our razor!
I am loving each product that I have purchased so much! It makes me feel good that I am making as many changes as possible to reduce plastic as much as I can. Will continue to buy as gifts and spread the word. Let us join together in helping the Environment!

End of Life
Bamboo Safety Razor:
Your bamboo razor handle will last you for years to come, we guarantee it.*
In the unlikely event you need to dispose of your bamboo razor handle, unscrew the pieces from each other, recycle the stainless steel bits, and compost the bamboo handle.
*Life span will vary based on frequency of use, storage conditions, handling, etc.
Safety Razor Blades:
Typical Life Span: 5-10 shaves (per blade)*
If your city specifies that they collect scrap metal with their curbside recycling, you can toss your razor blades in there. Be sure to put them in an aluminum can or other small container so no one is injured.
Most city recycling programs, however, collect scrap metal separately.
Collect your blades in a blade bank made from an aluminum can or other small container. Be sure it is clearly labelled and keep it away from children and pets.
When the can is close to full, tape the opening to seal it and drop it off at your local scrap metal collection site for recycling.
*Life span will vary based on thickness of hair, storage conditions, etc.
Travel Size Shave Bar:
Your shave bar will dissolve to nothing so you don’t need to worry about disposing of it, unlike an aerosol can!
*Life span will vary based on storage conditions, desired foaminess, etc.
Your travel tin will last you for years to come, so keep it and use it again and again.*
In the unlikely event you need to dispose of your travel tin or insert, they can be tossed in your recycling bin.
A garbage truck’s worth of plastic is dumped into our oceans each minute, adding to the growing Global Pacific Garbage Patch (which is now twice the size of Texas).
Join Just Shavers everywhere picking planet over plastic and refills over landfills!
