How to use your Minim Eco-Razor

Shaving with our Minim Eco Razor is a sustainable and economical way to get the closest shave and the smoothest skin. Here are some steps to help you get started:

  1. Prepare your skin: Start by washing your face with warm water to open your pores and soften the hair. This will make it easier to shave and reduce the risk of nicks and cuts.

  2. Open the butterfly clasp: Rotate your Minim Eco Razor anti-clockwise to open the butterfly clasp. Carefully place the double blade into position and turn the handle on your Minim Eco-Razor clockwise to lock.

  3. Lather up: Apply a good quality shaving cream or soap to your face, legs or the area you are wanting to shave, using a brush or hands to create a rich lather. This will help to lift the hair and protect your skin.

  4. Hold the Eco-Razor correctly: Hold the handle of your Minim Eco-Razor with your dominant hand and angle the blade at about 30 degrees against your skin. Your other hand should be used to pull your skin taut.

  5. Shave with the grain: Start by shaving in the direction of the hair growth (with the grain). This will reduce the risk of irritation and provide a closer shave.

  6. Re-lather and repeat: After your first pass, re-lather and make another pass, this time going against the grain for a closer shave.

  7. Rinse and moisturise: Rinse your face or shaved area with cold water to close your pores and remove any remaining shaving cream. Finish by applying a moisturiser to soothe your skin.

It may take a bit of practice to get used to using a double edged razor, if you haven't used one before. However with time and patience, you'll find it to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Plus you're being sustainable! Remember to always use a light touch and take your time, especially when learning.

Happy Shaving!
