Friends, I don’t have a perfect lifestyle and while I try to incorporate as much ethical shopping as I can there is definitely so much I still need to do! Which is why I really love Annabella’s approach (post here): start one item at a time!
So I get back from vacation and open my luggage to find the Gillette Venus Razor I’ve had for years broken in half. I was about to go to CVS to buy a new one when I thought…well here’s an opportunity, so instead I went to Sustainable NYC in the East Village to see if there was a green alternative and I found one!!
This is the Preserve: Triple Razor, my new razor! The Preserve is 100% recyclable and made in the U.S. out of recycled yogurt cups and at $9 bucks it’s exactly the cost of my old Venus razor. The blade is unisex and available in all kinds of fun colors! Honestly I’m a little sad I got it in green because it comes in a great fuchsia!
Now friends, I was really afraid to try this product. I’ve been using the Venus for so long and was happy with the quality of the shave and I have super sensitive skin and am pretty wary to try anything new on it, so I was really going into this with lots of reservations.
But I’m so happy to report I LOVE this product!!! The Preserve razor is really light and the handle is made easy to grip! The quality of shave is also really great! I got a super close shave using this razor and no skin irritation from the moisture strip :).
Another feature I really love from the Preserve Triple Razor is how easy it is to remove and replace the blade. I couldn’t quite manage this in pictures so in case you wanted to see this feature of The Preserve in action I made a little video for you! My first one (well, except the one of my mama, HERE)…Be kind!
