This Rose Gold Safety Razor Isn't Just Beautiful, It Helps Prevent Ingrown Hairs

Plus it offers a sustainable way to shave.

Body hair removal is a matter of personal preference, and if that’s part of your bathroom routine, you may want to consider investing in a safety razor. Before starting to use one myself a year ago, like many, I relied on so-called reusable razors that require constant repurchasing of refill cartridges (which, like the handle itself, are typically made partly from plastic, and not always properly recycled when disposed of). Other than being environmentally unsustainable, the disposable nature of plastic razors also means that the shaving method isn’t so ideal for your wallet in the long run. What’s even worse is when these multi-blade razors, notorious for pulling hair and harboring bacteria, cause dreaded ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

For those looking for an alternative shaving option, a traditional metal safety razor — like Bambaw‘s sleek, rose gold design — is your best bet. Read on for why this Editor’s Pick is an essential for hassle-free at-home hair removal.

WHAT IS IT: Bambaw Metal Safety Razor

WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: Unlike cartridge razors, this double-edged safety razor uses a single blade that’s sharp enough to shave hair close to the skin, instead of tugging hair and cutting it under the skin level. While first-time users may find the appearance of the razor intimidating, it doesn’t take long to get used to the shaving method. The weighted handle makes it easy and natural to glide the razor across the skin, without the need to apply a lot of pressure. I like to use Fur’s Shave Cream with my safety razor — for me, this combination has really helped keep ingrown hairs and skin irritation at bay, whether it’s on the bikini line, armpits or legs. Offering a much more sustainable way to shave than plastic razors, this product is durable and made to last, while the stainless steel blades that it uses are easily recyclable. An added bonus, the beautiful rose gold finish of the razor will appeal to those who appreciate chic toiletries.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Available in rose gold, silver and black, the Metal Safety Razor retails for €20 EUR (approximately $24 USD) — or €25 EUR ($30 USD) with a matching stand — at the Bambaw website.
