Works good, cuts good
Bareaya Safety Razor
I had bought my first Bareaya safety razor in 2020 because I wanted to stop contributing to landfill through the plastic disposable razor heads which are impossible to recycle. I loved my rose gold razor but I had to accept I was never going to get any better at not slicing ribbons off my legs. Fast forward to 2023 and my original purchase had welded together - the head couldn't be removed from the handle - and, having purchased 100 blades at the start of the pandemic and being unwilling to go back to plastic, I figured I would buy a new one. I was surprised at the new design (and if I'm honest I didn't like it as much as the OG version) but OMG the improvement in the design is massive. It now feels like using any of the plastic pre-lubricated razors with protective bars. I'm not constantly bleeding out in the shower, nor are my legs covered in plastics or strawberry bumps. Yes it's still possible to cut yourself if you move the razor horizontally around your ankle but my legs look beautiful now and I'm so thrilled to continue using my stockpile of blades, which I'm storing securely to take to recycling. Bravo to the redesign team on this.
I'm satisfied with the purchase, I liked the sustainable packaging, everything looks really neat. I'm still getting used to the razor, as the experience is a bit different with commercial razors I'm used to. In a good way of course. I absolutely love the fact they are looking out for our Mother Earth and to lessen the impact we have.
It works amazing. And is the best shaving tool. Sadly I lost mine, so I am about to order a new one 🙃
