Introducing the perfect plastic-free shave starter kit!
New to stainless steel razors? This is the perfect bundle for you. This bundle includes everything you need to get started and rid of plastic from your shaving routine. We have proudly partnered with Leaf Shave to make plastic-free shaving less intimidating.
The Leaf razor combines a three-blade pivoting head with a sleek all-metal composition for a smooth shave that’s both better for your skin and better for the environment.
The Leaf’s pivoting head design helps you shave all over without the fear of nicks or cuts that traditional safety razors leave you with. You can choose to load 1, 2, or 3 pure-steel blades into The Leaf, allowing for personalization which is especially important for people with sensitive skin. It is totally customizable to suit your skin and hair!
The blades are spaced farther apart than traditional multi-blade razors, leading to less irritation, a more efficient shave, and an experience that you can look forward to. Cool right?
We know traditional metal safety razors can be intimidating, especially when shaving the more delicate areas or around curves. That’s why the Leaf has multiple blades and a pivoting head. There’s no other razor on the market that looks and works just like those cartridge razors you’re used to, but with none of the plastic.
What you get:
- 1 x Leaf Shave Razor
- 1 x 50 blade refill pack
- 1 x Razor stand
- 1 x Blade recycling tin
The blade recycling tin (included in your bundle) is a safe place to keep used blades until you’re ready to recycle them. And when you are, the tin can simply be secured and sent back to us to make things easy, or you can locate a scrap-metal recycling drop near you.
To recycle with us, secure your full tins and post them back to us at:
The Good Source RECYCLE, 38 Walton Street, Red Beach, Auckland 0932.
1. If you are having trouble shaving in tight places like directly under your nose, we recommend shaving at an angle across/against the grain to access any remaining hair.
2. If you find the razor is too aggressive, leave the bottom blade out and start loading with the middle blade. In this way, The Leaf is adjustable to suit your needs.
3. Let the weight of the razor work its magic! Do not apply extra pressure.
4. Always keep your skin and the razor wet while shaving and rinse as you shave. Use a good shave soap for glide.
5. See the image for how to load the blades into the razor.
The Leaf Razor is built to last. And as long as you care for the razor, it will care for you. Here are a few overall guidelines that you can follow:
How long do the blades last?
This can vary person-to-person; the best thing to do is swap your blades when you feel them starting to dull. On average you can expect 8 to 12 shaves. Some may swap every week, others every 3 months - so learn how it works for you.
Once a month, or as needed, perform a deep clean. Keep an old toothbrush handy and with a small amount of dish soap, scrub up some bubbly and clean out the nooks and crannies. For a finishing touch, try a dip in rubbing alcohol to disinfect
and wick away the moisture from the cleaning.
Day To Day Care
Give your razor a thorough rinse after each use. Ideally, open the head up and rinse any residual soap or hair from inside the razor and blades. Keep stored in a dry place. If you are going to store it in the shower, at least make sure it’s not directly under running water.
If you find that your razor has tough soap residue or hard water stains: prepare a bath for the razor made up of 1 part vinegar, 1 part water. Let the razor soak for 10 minutes. The vinegar will break down mineralized water and soap residue. Following the bath, scrub the razor as described above, and buff with a soft cloth or towel.
