Happy Monday! Hope you all had a good weekend…if yours was anything like DC’s, like it or not– summer is here to stay!
A bit of a random topic here today, but one I’ve been wanting to share for awhile. It’s also kind of one of my only beauty secrets. The timing worked out well with Father’s Day next weekend, because we’re talking about a brand of men’s razors and why they’re equally good for women. Harry’s…have you heard of them?
Basically, Harry’s manufactures their own, high quality products and sells them directly on their website (and through select retailers), which allows them to keep costs low and be completely transparent about their manufacturing process and product construction. Their offerings are limited, but that’s actually a good thing–it’s easy what’s available and makes for a much more pleasant shopping experience.
Why I love them:
– The blades (and razors handles) are inexpensive. Anyone else cringe at the cost of women’s razor blade refills from the drugstore? That was the biggest draw for me when I started considering a switch…Harry’s blades can be as low as $1.75 each, and shipping is free for purchases over $10. I definitely use each blade them more times than I should, but probably average replacing a blade every six to eight weeks. They also offer a subscription if you don’t want to have to remember to reorder new blades.
– The branding in on point. The first time I saw a Harry’s razor is back when J was getting Birchbox Man and a the Truman razor. The sleek design and solid navy color caught my attention immediately. He already had an electric one he liked and hadn’t used the Harry’s one, so I stole it one day when I was over and needed to shave my legs. That was that–I ordered my own the next day and have used it exclusively since!
– They’re just really good razors. Plain and simple: they’re so, so good. I use the most basic version daily–buy it solo here, or spend $5 more and get the intro set with a couple of replacement blades. The Winston set is pictured in this post (or get the handle with one blade here).
– They’re easy gifts–especially for the guys. While I’m not sure I’d give a girlfriend a nice razor set as a gift (maybe a really good girlfriend who’s reluctant to spend $ on herself), Harry’s is a great gifting item for the men in your life. There’s a Father’s Day set available right now, and a limited edition Father-Son set that’s really adorable. They’d be a great option for a man on the go–the little plastic covering that snaps over the blade (pictured below) is one of my favorite features, as it makes traveling with your razor so much easier. I used to try to dry mine all the way and put it in a plastic bag to avoid having the blades come into contact with other toiletries…no more!
Harry’s provided this particular set to me for this post, but all opinions are my own–I’m happy to have discovered the brand over two years ago :)
