FAQ's

How does an Aphrodite Razor subscription work?

Initially we will send you an Aphrodite Razor with a box of 5 blades to get you started with your shaves. We then send you replaceable blades  at a frequency of your choice, depending on how often you shave.

How much is a subscription?

Your initial order with Aphrodite Razors is £24.90. This includes your lifetime safety razor with your first month of blades. Your razor comes with a lifetime guarantee, meaning that if it ever breaks, we'll replace it for free. Your monthly subscription thereafter is £4.90 per subscription month. Delivery for your Aphrodite Razors subscription is free for UK residents. 

How often should I change my blade?

We recommend that you change your razor blade every 3-5 shaves. This is to ensure you have the optimum shave and get the smoothest results every time you shave. Changing your blade reduces irritation and minimises the chance of snagging your skin. It's also pretty unhygienic not to; if you don't then bacteria builds up on the blade over time.

How many blades do I get in a box?

Each blade box contains 5 sharp stainless steel blades. This enables you to change your blades on a weekly basis throughout the year if you shave frequently. 

I have too many blades, what do I do? 

We hope you change your blades every 3-5 shaves to have the best shaves possible. But if you find that you aren't using your blades at the frequency they are being provided, you can fully customise your subscription in your account area. Create your account using the same email you used when signing up to your Aphrodite Razors subscription. Here you can pause your subscription, skip a month, or change how frequently you receive your blades to suit your needs. If you need any help please contact hellobeautiful@aphroditerazors.com.

When will I be charged for my subscription and when will I receive?

You will be charged for your subscription on the date of your first order every subscription month. Please allow 3-5 working days for your order to arrive after the date payment has been taken. If your order hasn't arrived after 5 working days, please contact us so we can track your order for you. 

How are Aphrodite Razors 100% plastic free?

Our plastic free razors are made out of zinc and stainless steel. To cut down on plastic packaging, our metal razors are packed in recyclable card. So you can feel confident that your shave is silky smooth for you whilst being cleaner for the planet. 

Are you really a sustainable brand?

At Aphrodite Razors we do our very best to do everything we can to be as sustainable and kind to the planet. Our plastic free razor is sophisticatedly designed to help you shave back on your plastic usage, whilst being kind to you and your skin! For every razor sold we plant a tree with One Tree at a Time.

So you're a plastic free and planet friendly razor...

Yes! We are a 100% plastic free razor. Our metal razors are traditionally known as a 'safety razor' or 'single-blade razor'. Uncommonly known, but these razors actually give you a silkier and smoother result than traditional multi-blade plastic razors. Don't believe us? Well you'll have to try for yourself... 

Okay... so what's a safety razor again?

Safety razors give you the smoothest of shaves. A single-blade razor is made to last, not dispose. They are made from stainless steel and feature a single removable blade. They weren't named to fool you, they are actually safe. A safety bar keeps the blade directly away from your skin so you can relax and feel confident when using our plastic free razor.

So because there is a safety bar, can I cut myself?

As with any razor, whether it a plastic disposable razor or a metal razor, there is a risk that you cut yourself when shaving. But don't be put off. Unlike with multi-blade plastic razors to key is to not use pressure, just let the metal razor glide over your skin and you should have no problems with cuts and grazes. We also have a shaving guide on our website to help guide you through using a safety razor for the first time.

What other benefits are there to using a metal razor?

Since a single-blade (safety razor) cuts your hair at skin level, there are fewer chances of hair regrowth getting trapped below the epidermis, the surface of the skin. When hair has to struggle through your follicles, it causes irritation, resulting in itchy, inflamed regrowth. Ingrown hairs occur when that blunt hair gets trapped in the follicle and curls back under the skin. This happens less with a safety razor because it never cuts the hair below the surface of the skin to begin with. So you're guaranteed a lasting silky smooth feeling.

Your razor is designed to last for years, with proper care. Think of it as an investment. Our razors are more durable and built to last in comparison to the plastic razors you may have used previously. A little extra money = a lot more life. So you can shave back on money spent as well as plastic used over the years.

By cutting back on your plastic usage you are reducing the amount of single use plastic in the world. This reduces fossil fuel usage, plastic manufacturing, plastic waste and plastic pollution. Plastic pollution is really bad for our oceans and for us. So with your happier, sophisticated shave you can be pleased you're doing something good for the planet.
