I jumped on this Dollar Shave Club bandwagon, and let me just tell you now: I am satisfied.
I ran out of my last set of razors, and decided to try the new fad, especially after seeing how many women switched over. It may be marketed toward men, but it is just as good for the ladies!
Dollar Shave Club Subscription Options
DSC has three different razor sizes: 2 (Humble Twin), 4 (4x), and 6 (Executive) blades. I splurged and got the Executive 6 blade razor.
You can select how often you want your refills to come in, and add additional items before your shipment processes. You can also cancel at any time, no contracts.
All sizes are only $1 the first month you order. Below are the prices for subsequent months.
Humble Twin (2 blades): $1/month with $2 shipping and handling. Includes 5 cartridges in each refill.
The 4x (4 blades): $6/month with free shipping and handling. Includes 4 cartridges in each refill.
The Executive (6 blades): $9/month with free shipping and handling. Includes 4 cartridges in each refill.
Add-Ons: There are a ton of additional products you can add to your subscription, like sunscreen and other stuff. I got the shave butter for $8.
Bonus: If you ever decide to change sizes, the new handle is free.
Hairy men. But like I said, women use it, too! I actually think it’s better for women, because a lot of guys use electric razors these days.
I ordered my executive blade on January 22nd, and it came in on the 28th. Here’s what was inside:
My executive handle and 4 blade cartridges.
Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter: this stuff has an interesting aroma to it, that ended up smelling way better once I was using it in the shower. It’s got like an earthy scent. The butter has ingredients to help with irritation, soothe and moisturize during your shave. You don’t need a lot to go a long way.
Before, I was using a Venus 4-blade razor with cartridges that had the shaving lotion built into the blade. I used to like that because I didn’t have to buy shaving cream, and I knew I needed a refill when the lotion ran out. Those refills cost around $20 for 6 cartridges, which blows! Especially if the blade had more life left, which I need as a broke chick.
I’m definitely staying with Dollar Shave Club for good. Whenever I need a refill, that comes down to $9 for 4 cartridges, which is much cheaper, especially for an extra 2 blades. And it was one of the best shaves I’ve ever had. It was cleaner, and I loved the shave butter. It ended up smelling really good, and helped with the clean shave. For only $8, it beats any other product I might get to make up for the built-in shaving lotion.
Try out Dollar Shave Club for yourself and see how great of a shave you can get, and at an even better deal!
