The Soleil range is my go-to razor brand and the Bella is no different!
The package is all blue, which is nice for people like me that like more gender neutral colours for their products instead of a super feminine pink with flowers and such. It's quite easy to open, though you may need a pair of scissors if your nails aren't particularly long. The razors themselves as neat and simple, with a moisturising blue strip around the edge of the razor blades. These blades aren't scented but they are quite fresh-smelling anyway.
Using them is really easy and the blades are sharp and clean for the first 5-10 uses.
It leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft, without an itchiness or soreness of the skin. You should still be careful about the angle that you shave at, as razors are always prone to catching your skin instead of the hairs.
Personally, I feel that these razors don't last as long as some of the other variations in this range, usually lasting about 2 weeks rather than the usual 3-4 weeks. The quality doesn't suffer but it can be very frustrating.
Overall, these are some very good razors for the price and I would highly recommend them!
What Do I Think?
Hair removal...sadly, one of those mundane but essential daily (or near enough!) tasks, unless you favour the hairy look! I'm far too much of a wuss to experience waxing (OK, so I braved and survived childbirth, but waxing my legs or bikini line...not on your nelly!), hair removal creams irritate my skin and don't work, so shaving has always been my preferred method of hair removal. It's the easiest, quickest and probably cheapest method in my opinion. I'm normally a 'Venus' girl, but only because back in the day when I bought my first razor that was probably on offer in Boots! For me, the things I look for in a razor are affordability (often the blades cost a horrendous amount, and it's cheaper to buy a new razor each time!), ease of use (easy grip handle etc), blades that don't blunt too quickly and a flexible head so you can manoeuvre around the knees/ankles without cutting yourself - why is it shaving cuts hurt and bleed so much?! The last razor I had was a Venus Embrace, and it was categorically the WORST razor I have ever used, even disposable ones from the £1 shop were better! It cut me and went mouldy in the space of about two seconds, gross! I was asked to try these razors from BIC (first time I've used their products), and have been really pleasantly surprised. You get 3 per pack, and the razor heads themselves have 4 blades and pivot nicely so you can effortlessly avoid nicking your ankles. After having my baby, and having had a C-Section, I didn't manage to shave my legs for a shameful 5 weeks, so I certainly put these to the test the first time I used them! I didn't really know what to expect, but was really pleased that they glided through my hair (and trust me, it wasn't a pretty sight before!) and left me silky smooth - like a babies bum ;) They are affordable, easy to hold and use, and I can't really think of anything negative about them! Thumbs up!
Where Are They Available?
BIC razors are available from Boots, Superdrug, Sainsburys and Tesco in the UK.
How Much Will They Cost?
An absolute bargain price of £4.99 - for 3 razors!
Would I Recommend Them?
Yes, they are so much cheaper than other razors and remove hair just as efficiently, so what's not to love?! I will be repurchasing once my packs have run out.
