I have one complaint about Billie Razors, just one.
Have you seen the advertisements on social media for this trendy razor brand called Billie? If so, you know they have some pretty neat, attention-grabbing advertisements. If not, you’ll still want to keep reading. The following post outlines my experience with Billie Razor, and my ONE complaint with the brand: They weren’t around decades ago when I first began shaving my legs.
Look, it’s rare that I become one of those psycho self-imposed brand ambassador types. I am not affiliated with Billie, don’t get any kickbacks, freebies, or affiliate pay for carrying on about them. I’m just a random gal who has been shaving for, well, close to 30 years (ugh). Albeit, there have been significant periods where I’ve used an epilator (legs only), but that was primarily because I hated razors. Hated them. Severe, angry, “I really despise you” type of anger. There was no joy for me in shaving my legs: constant nicks, constant razor burn, constant nicks because of the previous day’s razor burn, stinging, irritation, etc. – my legs just don’t like razors, but that changed in 2020.
Sometime in early 2020 I began seeing tons of Facebook ads for these new razors. They looked cute enough, but I’ve bought cute before and cute has always sliced, diced, mangled and annoyed the living @!^&#! out of my legs. So, I didn’t bite, but the ads kept coming. Usually, repetitive ads super annoy me. For whatever reason, I didn’t click the whole “dont’ show me this again” option on Billie ads, and thank goodness for that. Eventually, I clicked one of the Facebook ads and began reading the comments. There sure was a lot of positive hype circulating around these razors. My internal eye-roll was in full force. “Razors that don’t ruin the !@&#% out of my legs? Right. Sure. Okay. Uh huh. Heard it before.” At some point, despite my doubt, I decided that for 9 bucks, I might as well try these razors out. I’d have to go buy some razors locally at some point, and I’d spend more than $9 on those – and I already know I hate those, so why not spend my 9 bucks and just give it a shot?
I’m wordy, so let’s just fast forward to the day my little $9 box arrived. Inside the box was my razor handle (in color of my choosing – cool, right?), a neat magnetic holder for the handle, and 2 5-blade razor cartridges. Cute factor: 10 of 10, but we all know that the cute-factor often leads to totally bogus garbage. A little later, I and my new 9-dollar shaving supplies were headed to the shower. Oh, by the way – I also added their shaving cream to my cart when I ordered, so I had that too (cost is separate).
After I wet everything down with water (myself and the razor) – I squeezed out some of that shaving cream and got to work. First use of the razor – my mind is all like “What is happening? Where am I?” I think I had a brief out of body experience, or some sort of mystical moment – who knows? Anyhow, I was in shock. This razor was SLICK, and I mean slick like snail slime – which would be gross if it were snail slime, but in this case that whole snail-slime-slick business was absolute shaving perfection. It wasn’t just the shave cream though. The shave cream is incredible, but the razor itself has the slickest little strip on the edge that I’ve ever experienced and it will 1000% change your shaving life if you’ve ever suffered with lots of razor burn no matter what brand you’ve used.
This Stuff HAS to be Made by Unicorns.
It’s that good.
No nicks. No cuts. No dragging. No irritation. No razor burn. No stinging. No blood.
It’s magical, really.
By now, I’m sure you’ve come to the conclusion that I highly recommend Billie Razors, and you’re right. I do – I SO do.
No, I’m not an Affiliate
Sadly, Billie doesn’t even have an affiliate program that I’m aware of. If they did, I would totally be pressing all the buttons and typing in all the info required to get on to that wagon, because I would have everyone I know getting Billie Razors and I would love that referral bonus. They’re great enough that I’m more than happy to tell everyone about them – with the only incentive being just sharing a great product with people who may be missing out on it.
A Few Tips for When You Try Billie
- Even though Billie razors come with this cute magnetic shower holder, avoid leaving your razor in a spot where it can’t dry out between uses. Those slick strips on the edge will last a lot longer this way.
- Make sure the razor head isn’t touching whatever surface you leave it on between uses. If the razor head gets tilted and is touching, say, the edge of a surface on your tub or shower – the awesome strip on it will sort of glue itself to the surface as it dries, and though it’ll easily pull off – you’re just damaging the life span of the strip.
- If you decide to use the shave cream, get that skin super wet with water first, and then use a SMALL amount of the shave cream. Seriously – you do not need much. If your legs are wet, you can likely get a dime to nickel size amount to go from ankle to thigh. You can always add a bit more if you need it, but start with less. This stuff is crazy slick, so a tiny bit goes a long way. Throw out everything you know about old school shave creams and gels – this is something altogether different.
Ok, Go Grab the Magic!
So you’ve made it to the end of this review and you’re going “Surely not. No shave can be that great.” It is. Order the set. Add the shave cream if you want to be extra magical. Their Dry-Bye Lotion is fabulous as well (never experienced a matte body lotion before – and it does NOT disappoint).
Go for it, and when you get your kit and try it out for the first time – stop back by and:
