wellness wednesday: why I started using the billie razor
I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve really been enjoying our Wellness Wednesday series every week! If you’re new around here, you can catch up on all of our Wellness Wednesday posts here. Today’s post is a little unique and to be honest, is covering a topic I hadn’t given much thought prior to connecting with the brand. But the more I learned about Billie – their product, their purpose – the more I realized just how important it was for me to try + share with y’all!
It may seem pretty random to dedicate an entire blog post to the razor I use, but hear me out. There are parts of my beauty routine that I put a lot of thought, research, and care into. When it comes to beauty and skincare, I won’t use just anything – I’m pretty sure y’all know that by now. I really scrutinize the products I put on my face from foundation to moisturizer. I have tested out every concealer and self-tanner under the sun. I’m super particular about hair products and tools. But when it comes to shaving my legs? I literally just grab whatever razor has the most appealing packaging and seems most familiar to me. I don’t pay close attention to ingredients, pricing, or anything like that. SO when I had the opportunity to learn more about Billie, I decided it was definitely worth a look. I mean, if not every foundation is created equally, that same logic probably applies to razors, right?
All about the Billie brand
Billie is a female-first brand that delivers both razors and body products (of amazing quality!) at a super discounted price. I had honestly never thought of getting my razors delivered, but then I realized just how convenient and, tbh, sanitary this is. (Am I the only one who forgets to regularly replace their razors/cartridges?!) A key part of the Billie brand, which I love, is the belief that women not only desire the same quality as men when it comes to shaving, but that it should be available at a reasonable price point too. If you think about it, when you hear about ‘quality shaving companies’ you most likely don’t think about products and services aimed at women. You think of guys taking care of their faces/beards, etc. You can read more about their brand and mission here.
The products + my personal review
When I received my Starter Kit a couple of months ago it contained the razor base/handle, magic holder (super convenient!), and two 5-blade razor cartridges. I also got some of the body products to test out and review, too. The Billie razor is uniquely designed to give you a close shave without being harsh on your skin. I have super sensitive skin and didn’t have any issues with any of the Billie products. My skin was insanely smooth and soft, and I didn’t have any bumps or irritation after shaving. Seriously y’all, it gives you the BEST shave! The blades are actually framed with aloe so I found that to be extra soothing on my skin. Another thing I love about the razor and all of the products is that they are totally toxin-free and made with natural, high quality ingredients.
I also tried out some of the Billie body products: the lotion, the shave cream, and the body wash. All of their products are made with natural ingredients and the price point is extremely reasonable (the lotion is only $12). My fave was probably the lotion because my skin needs all the hydration it can get, but I honestly loved all of them! Every products smells AMAZING and is designed with the goal of leaving your skin smooth, hydrated, and healthy.
How the Billie subscription services work
When you sign up for the Billie razor service, they’ll deliver your Starter Kit which includes a razor handle, magnetic razor holder, and two razor cartridges for $9. The price point is seriously unreal, especially for the quality! Then, Billie will send you four replacement cartridges however often you need them for $9. Another amazing part is you don’t have to pay for shipping! Shipping is free and you can always add on other products to your orders – like the body lotion, super luxe shaving cream, etc. It’s really that simple! You can get started by ordering your starter kit here.
I wanted to share this post with y’all today because I think it’s important to evaluate every aspect of your beauty routine and seek wellness in those areas. Shaving is something I do all the time and now I’m confident I’m using quality products for that. I’ve had the best experience with my Billie razor and I’m hopeful that y’all will too! Thanks for reading!
