How does a razor repair your skin? Let's start from scratch. We've been conditioned to think that more blades are better, but for sensitive skin, that's far from the truth.
Our single-blade safety razor gently removes hair from the surface of the skin, unlike multi-blade razors that cause hair to dive below the skins surface, irritating follicles as they grow back.
THE SENSITIVE RAZOR is weighted, made of stainless steel, and designed to provide a close, smooth shave without damaging your skin and hair follicles in the process. Meaning ingrowns and razor burn are a thing of the past.

If you're new to the single-blade it can definitely be intimidating. Here's how to get your best shave:
Apply SUGARCOAT to wet skin in the shower, massage in.
Using no pressure at all, remember the razor is weighted, proceed to shave using short strokes on legs, underarms, or bikini areas.
Rejoice, as you'll have no razor burn to speak of.
I purchased the rose gold safety razor after getting tired of the pain that is epilating. The regular, 5-blade razors always irritated my skin. Combined with the shave gel-to-milk, my skin feels amazing after I shave! I love using this razor! The best part is the lack of pain involved. When beauty ISN’T pain, well, that’s a truly beautiful thing.
I was initially nervous to try this, but it is so easy to use! I have had no nicks or bumps. It's a clean, easy shave even on underarms and bikini line. It's also just a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing razor. Would definitely recommend!
Absolutely phenomenal - this is THE razor + shave gel you need and the only duo that will actually make you want to shave. It makes the task of shaving luxurious instead of painstaking and is completely worth the money. It's time we stopped with the plastic disposable nonsense and leveled up - for our skin. Oh, and zero irritation - I have very sensitive skin and haven't had any irritation. That is rare. Obsessed.
We've Made Shaving Even Easier
Our curated sets make sure you get the closest shave.
Shave by Design
Stainless steel: We made our razor from stainless steel because it’s the traditional metal of safety razors and lasts longer than most metals.
Angle: Oui the People's blade and safety razor head is designed to cut through the hair at a clean angle. This prevents hair from growing back sideways into the skin, which results in ingrown hairs.
Weight: Our razor is weighted so no added pressure is needed for a close shave. Multi-blade razors are designed with blunt blades so that you have to push in order to achieve a close shave.
Handle length: We designed the handle for maximum comfort. Shaving your ankles is much different than shaving your face - sometimes you need a little more reach.

Is shaving with a safety razor dangerous?
Safety razors are not dangerous as long as you follow our directions. THE SINGLE Sensitive Skin Razor is weighted, so you do not need to apply additional pressure while shaving. Applying pressure with a weighted razor can cause nicks and razor burn, especially on those boney areas. Take your time with this - shave with slow, longer strokes. The best advice we’ve ever heard came from one of our customers “shave as if you were tracing a feather”. Y’all are so smart. Additionally, be sure you're using a shave gel (not soap!) that provides enough cushion, like SUGARCOAT Moisturizing Shave-to-Gel Milk.
Will a safety razor prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn?
Since a single-blade (safety razor) shaves your hair at skin level, there are fewer chances of hair regrowth getting trapped below the epidermis, the surface of the skin. When hair has to struggle through your follicles, it causes irritation of those very follicles, resulting in itchy, inflamed regrowth. Ingrowns occur when that blunt hair gets trapped in the follicle and curls back under the skin. This happens less with a safety razor because it never shaves the hair below the surface of the skin to begin with. The rest is up to you, and it's rooted in skincare - especially for us curly people. Help your skin thrive by exfoliating and moisturizing.
How often should I change the blade?
We recommend that you change your blades every 5-7 shaves. Yeah, that'll probably be new to you! But shavingisskincare and skincare is shaving well. Changing your blade also directly correlates to the issues you experience with your skin, so just as you’d wash your makeup brushes to prevent bacteria-fueled breakouts, you should change your blade to prevent nicks and inflammation of your follicles (i.e. bacteria fueled breakouts on your legs).
How long does the razor last and how do I care for it?
Your razor is designed to last for years with proper care.
Proper care includes:
- Store your razor out of the shower, leaving it exposed to steam and moisture can cause rust.
- Drying your razor after each use, both the handle and the blade. Two seconds to do this really extends the life of your razor.
If rust develops - use a gentle castile soap, an old soft toothbrush, and gently scrub any rust. You can disassemble it and soak it in warm water for a few minutes before scrubbing if there is a lot of buildup. Dry with a towel and store when done.
If your razor seems to be prone to rust (say you live in a very humid environment) apply a little oil after cleaning, as it prevents corrosion by repelling water.
Can I travel with a safety razor?
A safety razor can only be packed in checked luggage, not carry-ons. *Shakes fist at TSA*
Can I use a safety razor on facial hair?
Yes, but note that the angle and exposure on this razor is very tight, making it gentler and great for sensitive skin, but may require multiple passes to go over facial hair if it is coarse.
