A razor extension is changing the game for pregnant women, as it lets them shave their legs with ease.
The ‘Giraffe Razor Extension Handle’ has been racking up the positive reviews online, with women praising the product.
The £39 handle comes with a changeable head that will fit most razors, and allows people who struggle with bending down to shave their legs.
Amazon describes it thus: “Giraffe Bath & Body designed the Giraffe Razor Extension Handle specifically to assist women who were unable to shave their legs due to limitations in flexibility and mobility.”
The listing details the conditions that might make shaving hard, including pregnancy, sports injuries, hip and knee surgery or a chronic medical condition like arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, and shoulder, neck or back pain.
It continues: “All of these conditions decrease flexibility and mobility and therefore, make shaving difficult if not impossible with a short-handled razor.
“And as a result, some women just ‘give up’ on shaving their legs entirely or resort to a caregiver or loved one to carry out this personal daily care routine.”
The positive reviews have been flying in, with one woman saying: “This helped me out big time! I’m currently pregnant and it was difficult to shave during the shower due to my growing belly.
“With the razor extender, it did not put any pressure on my back. If you’re a pregnant woman, I highly recommend this product.”
Another added: “I NEVER take the time to write reviews. So let me say how amazing this tool is! I don’t shave nearly as often as I should because it’s such a pain.
“I have back pain and we have a tiny shower. This gave me the freedom to shave without bending over at all.”
While it’s currently sold out on Amazon – there are other brands selling a similar product on there, though – you can still grab them from the manufacturer’s website here.
Greggs launches new vegan sausage butty and vegan ham and cheese baguette
Good news for vegans
In some good news for vegans, Greggs has announced it will be launching a vegan sausage butty and a vegan ham and cheese baguette.
The bakery chain has introduced vegan products in the past, including the now iconic vegan sausage roll – which caused much debate among the public.
Greggs also has a vegan steak bake on the menu, which is set to be joined by the Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll.
A Greggs spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: “Over the coming weeks we’ll be trialling our delicious Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll in a very small number of shops, with a wider launch planned for later in the year.”
This means vegans will soon have the option to grab a vegan breakfast butty and a baguette for their dinner.
The new sausages will be made with Quorn mycoprotein, and the breakfast butty will set you back £1.90.
Meanwhile, the ham and cheeze baguette will set you back £2.95, and will be made with Quorn mycoprotein ‘ham’ and cheddar flavoured vegan cheese slices.
It’s not yet been confirmed which shops will initially trial these two new additions to the menu.
Fingers crossed they land in a Manchester branch soon!
