This brilliant eco-friendly Shower and Shave Set will help cut plastic by swapping out disposable razor and/or razor blades for this plastic free safety razor, with replacable blades. Switching will also save money in the lnog run as this razor will last longer and blades are super cheap to replace (£1.25 for 5 blades!). Instead of an aerosol, use this soap bar which lathers well and creates a good foam for a clean shave.
This set contains:
- Double Edge Safety Razor with Bamboo Handle - Bambaw
- Red Clay Shaving Soap Bar - Zero Waste Path
- Shower Block (5 Scents plus unscented
Return to traditional plastic-free shaving with Bambaw’s stylish safety razor for both men and women. Each razor handle is made of a unique stem of bamboo (so they will have slightly different colours and patterns). With a long bamboo handle to ensure a safe grip, this unique bamboo razor is great for shaving the face and the body. Whether it is used in the shower, bath or over the sink: The long bamboo handle will stay grippy.
A useless marketing battle has led cartridge razors to embed 5 blades. That many blades irritate the skin and favours ingrown hair. All you need is one razor sharp blade to achieve that perfect shave. It's been designed so it's easy to use and ideal for beginners, as the closed comb makes it less aggressive than an open comb however shaving with an eco-friendly razor is different from a cartridge razor so a complete and illustrated online user manual is included.
In the box you will find 1 Bambaw safety razor, 1 Astra razor blade and an in-depth digital user manual.
Red Clay Soap
This forest scented soap is a wonderful shaving bar thanks to its soft lather, and can still be used on your hands, body and face bar, thanks to its detoxifying and moisturising properties.
A variation of ZWP's Shea Butter Soap, it shares the same moisturising base recipe, with the addition of red clay and a different, more powerful, blend of essential oils! The shea butter and coconut oil used are pure and organic, in addition to this, our soaps are made using the cold process method, helping to preserve the wonderful properties of our ingredients.
100% Vegan and Cruelty-free, made using 100% renewable energy.
Packaging is 100% recycled, unbleached cardboard. Recyclable and/or compostable.
Please note that because this product is handmade, therefore, slight variations in shape, colour, scent and weight may occur.
Shower Blocks ( 5 scents and unscented) - a totally plastic free alternative to shower gel! Bubbly and hydrating, they'll leave you feeling good inside and out. They also smell amazing and very uplifting. My favourite is Grapefruit and Mint but there isn't one I wouldn't use. I would say the Lime and Sandalwood has a slightly more traditional masculine scent.

Shower and Shave Set
Takes some time to get used to - This is a great ans easy swap but you need to take more time over a shave and be more mindful and gentle, letting the razor do the work and guiding it rather than dragging it. It does a great job, will save money in the long run as replacement blades are so cheap, handles nicely and feels great and saves a huge amount of 'disposable' throwaway plastic!
Soap - This soap makes a good lather so shaving with it is easy. You may find you need to buy a soap dish to help it dry and stopping it slipping around everywhere.
Shower Block - Super easy - just swap plastic packaging for biodegradable, recyclable packagaing instead! These bars are heralded as being less 'squeaky' than others. I live in a hard water area and have found it still to be a little squeaky but Showerblocks makers are on it and working to improve this as we speak! Still it smells amazing, lathers well and also supports Toiletries Amnesty so is still a feel good swap.
Do take a look at the manual, it gives you a great overview. Make sure you have some time set aside to enjoy and do not rush this task. It's actaully pretty therapeutic.
This soap bar can be used for washing your hands, body or face and also as a shaving soap, with or without the use of a shaving brush.
Keep this soap on a soap dish and let it dry evenly to make it last longer.
