Crafted to accommodate women’s sensitive skin and busy lifestyles, these online razor brands are doing things differently by making incredible products and feel-good brands you can get behind, plus they ship the goods straight to your door! Say goodbye to the days of razor burn, pink bumps and stubble thanks to a dull razor. Let’s do ourselves a favor and talk about fair pricing too. If you’re woke about Pink Taxes (refresher: on average we pay  7% more on consumer goods just because we’re women, that’s an estimated $40K of added expenses if you were born in 1989), then you’ll appreciate that these brands have done their part by making prices fair.



Meet Flamingo– the razor taking things to a whole new level. Flamingo was created by Harry’s employees Allie and Brittania to give women the same reliable shave men were getting. This razor is known for its light aloe strip and rounded edges that makes those quick, in-a-rush shaving sessions a breeze.
