Although razors are the fastest and most painless form of hair removal, they are not without drawbacks.
When your blades become dull with wear and tear, they’re immediately less efficient at leaving your skin silky smooth, and buying new ones is a to-do task we often forget.
That’s why it can be useful to sign up for a razor subscription.
Many brands offer the option to have new blades delivered to your home automatically as often as necessary.
Often they can work out cheaper than buying them at your local supermarket or Boots.
We’ve hand-picked our top-rated women’s shaver plans to help you find one that’s right for you.
They include a range of budgets and packages that will make your hair removal routine much easier.
