How’s this for a holiday/festival essential? A razor with a full sized head that's made compact and therefore even better to travel with. I feel a bit silly being so impressed by this as it is a fairly straightforward idea, I just think it's really useful. It’s not like normal razors are huge but the less space they take up in my case and the more portable they are (less worry about them snapping or ripping clothes…is that just a worry I have?) the better personally.
I also have a friend – honestly, it was a friend, it wasn't me – who had been known to shave her legs in the toilets on a night out if she’d gone out straight out from work. Why she didn’t just get up 15 minutes earlier on a morning to do it rather than hacking at her legs in a bar toilets while concerned bystanders looked on I don’t know! But this would have made that slightly odd task easier I suppose...
It's not fiddly to use at all and any Gillette head fits on it for when you need a fresh razor, which means you could just keep the handle for this in your case really. I switched to disposable razors a while ago and they were awful, I quickly jumped back to using my Gillette!
This is one holiday essential that will be coming on my honeymoon to the Maldives with me in a few weeks (SO EXCITED!!!)! Normally when things have been shrunken for travel, like shampoo and toothpaste I just worry they’ll run out really quickly but nope not worried with this! I'll post soon about what else I'm taking away on holiday with me this year, even though I'm sure it's generally pretty similar every year, I much prefer to pack light and think c'est la vie about the stuff I've forgotten.
