F Amenity Kit

A rather micro detail question that perhaps a regular F traveller may be able to help me with please.
Flying LHR-SCL F at the end of next week (the longest BA flight I believe). It's been several years since our last BA F flight.

Looking at photos online of the current F amenity kit it appears to contain shaving gel - which is good - but no razor to use it with !

Is this normal ? Maybe as with some other airlines one can obtain items such as this from the CC ?

Thank you

I think they set them up in the bathroom, but I'm not sure. I think I saw them in June and August, and I didn't see them in the September and October flights

The razors given out by most airlines are not really fit for purpose so easier/better just to take your own which you more than likely will need later anyhow (just wrap it up along side your fluids).

No razor in the standard on board amenity kit but if you ask at the shower reception to the left of the CCR entrance they will give you a small boxed set including a disposable razor and a tube of shaving foam. The razor is of usual disposable quality and perfectly serviceable IMO.

Available on request as mentioned above or from the SPA. Gone are the days you used to get a good Wilkinson Sword dispossable one which lasted quite a while.

Gone are the days of the spa - where you could get a (not geat!) wet shave!

They're available on request. If the crew aren't sure where they are, they're in the back up toiletries canister.

Well they should as that’s where you go if you need to replace the toiletries In the loos.

On a related topic, the Elemis shave gel is very nice (as are the two moisturizers that come in the kit). Much better IMO than shave cream.

I like the pen, deodorant and socks in the amenity kit. If I want a wet shave I have always been able to get a razor from the crew.

Data point...Cathay Lounge Terminal 3 has razors in the private shower stalls. You can buy condoms and gum in the public washrooms..but can you buy a razer? Anyone?
