Question Replacing razor receptacle with gfci

So in my bathroom I had a light switch that use to control a light and a razor only outlet.
I don't have a razor and I want to use my electric toothbrush charger in the bathroom.

So I decided to change it for a gfci. I would really like if the outlet was not dependent of the light.

breaker and gcfi are 15 amps

I looked at a lot of diagrams and I think I found how to. Could somebody double check on my drawing? I just don't want to do all this and then its just not working.

Power source is at the ceiling in the light outlet box
a 4 cable (ground, black, red, white) start there and is going to the razor outlet box
then a 2 cable (black white) from the razor outlet goes to the light switch

I did not draw the ground cables because it was confusing but I plan on wire them all, don't worry

thank you!!

a 4 cable
Actually 3-conductor cable. Ground isn't counted. Your diagram should work. Remember to remove the isolation transformer for the razor receptacle.
