For months now I have been hearing about the Billie razor subscription service from my sister. She is a HUGE fan. While they do have other products she has only used their razors and loves them. The picture above is how pretty hers is and here are the quotes I got today over text:
“It would fit right in with your website and I love it!! Cheap razors and delivered right to your door so no need to leave the house. It comes with that little magnetic holder and they have just released other products too.”
“They are really great. And I use the blades for a long time. I haven’t necessarily needed to change when they show up so I just hold onto them.”
Since she never lies to me I figured I would do some research and check it out. Sometimes we have different ideas of what is frugal. But in this case she is 100% correct. The pricing, the quality and the online reviews are FANTASTIC. Plus they donate 1% of their revenue to causes around the world. In light of current events they are donating to local foods banks right now.
The Billie razor subscription service costs $9 per shipment, which is already impressive because competitors can charge up to $39 a month. Granted those competitors are usually men’s products. To get started, Billie has you fill out a quick, three-step survey to best understand your shaving needs. You can choose the razor color of your choice: Coral, DreamPop, Blush, Periwinkle, and Cool Blue. I read several articles that said Periwinkle was the most popular color and I think it’s beautiful.
You’ll answer questions about how often you shave to create a subscription plan that works with your personal shaving frequency (monthly, bimonthly, or even trimonthly shipments). I love that they try to just send you the quantity you will actually use. Granted it’s not like they will expire so if you have to store some no big deal.
Your first shipment is the Starter Kit, which includes a Billie handle, one magnetic razor holder, and two razor cartridges with lather bars built in. Every shipment after that will deliver four replacement cartridges — but only when you need them.
How long Billie lasts really depends on your hair growth and how often you shave, but the brand recommends to replace your blade after every seven shaves “for a tip-top shave every time.” And all their products are vegan, made without parabens, sulfates and synthetic fragrances so they are perfect for sensitive skin.
Having cartridges regularly delivered right to your door (with free shipping) makes the shaving experience so much easier. You won’t end up using a dull razor for a week because you forget to buy more. Plus the cartridges are cleaner to store than a large bulk pack of razors. Per Billie’s policy, you can cancel anytime — no strings attached.
Additionally I went online and read reviews. For about thirty minutes. And couldn’t find anyone who didn’t like them. Seriously. Every major publication I checked raved about them.
So maybe slurge today for yourself and spend $9 to check it out? With being stuck inside so much I am looking for little ways to pamper myself without going broke and this would be a great one.
In the spirit of full disclosure if you use my link to try it I will get $5 toward my purchase of products. I don’t usually work for product (cause my mortgage company won’t take it in exchange for keeping a roof over my head) but in this case I really trust my sister and think having a new razor to try would be fun! Plus once you try it you can refer your friends!
