The future of shaving is here
It’s kind of crazy to think that I’ve been shaving my legs for more than 30 years. Sure, I started with an electric razor before moving on to the Flicker (you can get one on Etsy for $76!) and finally graduating to those pink disposable razors that I can’t remember the name of. Other than a few additional blades, the shaving scene hasn’t changed all that much over the past few decades—but then the Aveline razor landed on my doorstep.
I wasn’t really sure what to make of it at first. Although it bears resemblance to the head razors some men use, I obviously have no experience with this sort of personal grooming. The innovative design essentially eliminates the long handle and features a “ring” for your middle finger so the razor can actually sit in the palm of your hand. There are also three rollerballs to help guide the razor—and it has a suspension system that allows the razor head to adapt to curves (such as around your knees). All this is meant to give you more control along with a close shave and less risk of nicking yourself.
I’ll admit it takes a little getting used to—and you can hold it like a tradition razor (albeit with an abbreviated handle)—but the results have been great. I definitely noticed smoother skin as compared to my usual razor (although I think it’s time to replace my cartridge) and I haven’t cut myself at all.
In an effort to transform your entire shaving experience, Avenine has also introduced the Salt & Sugar Body Scrub, Shea Butter Shave Cream and Botanical Body Lotion. You can get product as well as the razor a la carte for $8 each (which is a pretty decent price), or splurge for the starter kit for $29. From there, you can subscribe to have replacement cartridges sent your way on your schedule—and Aveline is decidedly anti-Pink Tax so you know you’re not paying extra just because you’re a woman (and we like that, right?).
