Gillette Venus Extra Smooth Green Women’s Razor

This 5-blade razor is a favorite for what the brand calls its “lubrastrip,” which allows it to glide over your skin and reduce cuts. While not really enough lubrication to shave with, it really helps the glide factor when used with a shaving gel or oil. This set comes with the razor handle and two replacement blades.

You’ve probably read us wax on about how much we love this razor, as well as the brand’s newest hair and body care offerings. For just $9, you’ll receive a razor (in a choice of five colors), the Mag(net)ic holder and two 5-blade razor cartridges. Once you choose your razor, you’ll have the choice to decide how often you want to receive four replacement blades ($9). I shave pretty often so I chose once a month, but you can also do every other month or every three months. Then, add on shave cream ($8) a travel case ($5) biodegradable face wipes ($9) or body lotion ($12). Ta-da! No more shopping at the drugstore for razors again.

Safety razors use a single double-edge blade that doesn’t tug and pull and you don’t even need to apply much pressure to the skin while shaving. Although the initial price might yield a sticker shock, you’ll save money in the long run on disposable cartridges. (20 blades are just $10!) Plus, no plastic makes these much more eco-friendly.

If you’re looking to support Black-owned beauty brands, you can’t go wrong with this rose gold sensitive skin safety razor. Karen Young, the founder of Oui the People, was tired of dealing with razor burn and ingrown hairs.

Each razor comes with 10 replacement blades and is made-to-order so you’ll have to wait up to 10 weeks for your purchase. Still, once you get it in your hands, you won’t remember how you lived without it. Add on the hydrating body gloss ($65) for especially smooth skin.
