OUI Shave Review

I’m so excited to finally share with you guys my experience with OUI Shave-yay!  I couldn’t wait to dish on this product.  For starters, I just love Karen’s story, the founder of OUI Shave.  She was just like one of us- going about life, and had an epiphany moment.  Her epiphany moment was about razor burn.  It not only changed her life, but is changing the lives of so many women worldwide!  I love women who not only see a problem, but create a solution.  Karen is a serious Girl Boss in my opinion.

Karen realized shaving didn’t need to include razor burn and red legs.  It should be a luxurious experience.  Plus, she quickly became aware of the toxic chemicals in all of the shave creams, and knew something needed to be done.  Not only did she create a timeless razor and oil, but an entire new way to shave.  Irritation and toxin free of course!

Ok, so now that you know the story behind this amazing company, let me fill you in on the products themselves.  There are three types of razors essentially, Carrie, Charlotte and Samantha. Carrie and Samantha are the same except for the colors and length of handle.  Carrie is gold, with a shorter handle, and is made for women 5′ 6″ and under.  The Samantha is silver with a longer handle, and is made for women who are 5′ 7″ and taller.  The Charlotte razor is a different model altogether than the Samantha or Carrie.  It is a two blade razor, and is for hair type that is fine or slow growing.  The Carrie and Samantha razor are the opposite.  They are for coarse, thick, curly and those prone to ingrown hair.  They also have four double edged razor blades.


 My Experience-

I’m a tall girl, who has coarser hair, so I received the Samantha razor.  Can I just say I’ve never seen a more beautiful razor!  It’s heavy feeling and luxurious.  I also received the OUI Neroli Shave Oil-a truly luxe product in itself.  OUI has a full tutorial video on their website on how to use the razor properly.  First step is to let the warm water soften the skin for a couple minutes.  Then apply 2-3 pumps of the OUI Shave Oil.  A lot of women are used to having to press hard with conventional razors, but that’s not the case with OUI.  Since the razor is so weighted it does the work for you.  Just glide it over the area.  And just like that your legs are smooth, soft, and razor burn free.  My legs have never felt softer-ask my hubs!  Did I mention the smell of the OUI Neroli Shave Oil?  Well, it’s amazing.

Environmentally Friendly Razor-

What’s better than a great shaving experience?  How about an environmentally friendly one.  OUI razor is a one time purchase, because it lasts a lifetime.  The last razor you need to buy?  Need I say more?!  OUI razors are sourced from one of the best, and oldest, manufacturers in Germany.  Made of stainless steel and then coated in either chrome(Samantha) or gold(Carrie).  Once the blade is dull, you just switch it out for a new blade.  I’m seriously hooked! Plus, there is no plastic involved!  Think about how many plastic razors get thrown away every year!  Unfortunately, there is no where for them to go.  OUI Shave is changing this.

You can use the razor anywhere you shave-not just on your legs.  They even have a dopp kit in rose gold that fits your razor and blades-perfect for travel.  I’ve been eyeing it-so cute!

My legs have never been smoother.  OUI Shave has changed the razor scene, and for the better!  What better way to get your legs ready for summer than with OUI Shave!  Shop all their products here.  Also, head to my Instagram to enter to win the Samantha razor I’ve fallen hard for!!
