You Shave Eco-friendly Shave Kit ~ Review

Do you know how many disposable razors are dumped in US landfills each year?

Over 2 billion.

That's 2,000,000,000. Just in the US.

I had to sit and ponder that figure for some time. Not
only does the volume boggle the mind, it truly makes you consider the grander scale impact of our consumption.

I have been patting myself on the back for my family's increased recycling efforts this year. 2 billion. We don't do enough. We need to continue to challenge ourselves to keep searching for more ways to conserve, re-purpose and
recycle.


In that spirit, I truly have to extend KUDOS! to Ryan Johnson, the inventor and developer of the You Shave system: Shave Box and Natural Blade Lubricant.


"By making your razor go the distance, you are not only saving money, you're also saving our earth from kilograms upon kilograms of plastic and metal waste."

Ryan Johnson took a common problem, dulled razors, considered the cause of the problem and developed a solution that significantly lengths the life of your razor and reduces waste!

Ryan Johnson's analysis of razor "wear":
After your first shave with a brand new razor, the razor's blades begin to feel dull. After only 3 or 4 uses, the blade feels so dull that you're tempted to throw it away and start using a new blade.

The problem is... your "old" blade was never dulled from shaving in the first place.

The blade stopped cutti
ng because the blade surfaces were covered in a hard scale of solidified debris. Corrosion (rust) occurs when the metal blades come into contact with air, water, shaving cream, soap, and your body. The blades also tend to collect raw deposits of these substances. A nasty scale of deposits and
corrosion forms on the blade surfaces making them rough. This is why a brand new bl
ade is shiny silver and an older blade has a crusty or powdery appearance.

The You Shave Solution:
The Shave Box razor storage box and All Natural Blade Lubrica
nt!

The You Shave system is designed to lubricate your razor blade before shaving and prevent scale build up from forming on the blade.

The Shave Box is a compact box in which you store your razor. There is a small well at the base which holds just the right amount of Natural Blade Lubricant to keep your blade submerged. The Shave Box is easily mounted to a variety of surfaces with two suction cups, one at each end.



True to the You Shave philosophy, the You Shave system incorporates conse
rvation by design. The Shave Box is light weight, using the minimal necessary material to accomplish it's task. Both the Shave Box and the All Natural Blade Lubricant bottle, as well the system's packaging are completely recyclable. You Shave works with only eco-friendly suppliers and utilizes recyclable overstock components when previously recycled packaging solutions are not available.


My family was given the opportunity to test the You Shave system and I attest tha
t You Shave hits the mark! I immediately put it to the test on my razor, which I had felt was overdue to be replaced. It was at the point where it was just as likely to remove skin as anything else. I soaked my blade for two days and was astounded by the results! It was like shaving with a new blade! My legs were soft and silky and I began thinking about how much money we would save!


I received a You Shave Kit to explore for the purpose of creating this feature.  Statistics sourced from You Shave sites and representatives.  The opinions above are both honest and of my own experiences.  Non-original images cited above.
