Take your daily shaving to a whole new level with Dollar Shave Club! Spending money on razor can be pretty inexpensive – if you go with the dinky dollar store razors that scratch, cut, burn and tear up your skin. Can anyone really get a good shave with a single blade that lasts for a few uses at most? We post drugstore deals matching up coupons and rewards quite frequently on the blog – and they are pretty awesome deals. But what if you could save even MORE money, get better quality razors, AND not have to mess with collecting coupons and running to the store for the deals? Introducing Dollar Shave Club!
This unique monthly subscription box program isn’t like others we’ve seen. You get the items you NEED for way less than you’ll pay in the stores. How? Dollar Shave Club offers monthly boxes delivered to your door on the razor packs you prefer, plus they have some awesome extras you can add onto your order, if you want to go the extra mile! Although the site is geared toward men, women can use these razors, too. Here’s how it works:
Pick your razor. There are 3 options:
The Humble Twin: For only $1 a month (+ $2 shipping), you’ll score a great basic shaver with 2 stainless steel blades and a lubricating strip to soothe the skin. You’ll get a new handle and 5 cartridges per month for this option. That’s just 60¢ per cartridge, delivered to your door!
The 4X: This is the member favorite. These razors feature 4 stainless steel blades and an open back for fast, easy rinsing. You’ll get a new handle and 4 cartridges per month for $6 + FREE shipping. That’s equivalent to $1.50 per cartridge. Compare that to $2.49 for each Gillette Mach 3 cartridge you can get at the drugstore ($29.99 for 12). And delivery is FREE, saving you time, gas and coupon collecting.
The Executive: 6 stainless steel blades with a lubricating strip make up this razor. You’ll get a new handle and 4 cartridges per month for $9 + FREE shipping. That’s only $2.25 for each razor head, compared to the Gillette Fusion ProGlide refills for $4.74 each ($18.99 for 4).
Loving the comparisons and options so far? How about a personal take on these? I (Jeni), was sent the 4X razor with some of the extras you can order to review.
The 4X comes with a handle and 4 cartridges. For only $6 + free shipping every month, I’m seriously impressed. Kyle and I each claimed a cartridge and took turns testing this razor, to get the men’s and women’s point of view. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles like a fancy turning or rotating head, or a curve in the razor itself – but it doesn’t need those things.
Jeni’s opinion: I’m loving this razor! I can shave my legs quickly and efficiently – and love the closeness it gets. As a daily shaver, it’s nice to have the extra cartridges, knowing that when one goes dull, I can replace it quickly. It’s a GREAT razor and for only $6 a month, I’m definitely sold. I never realized just how influenced I’ve become from razor ads and commercials – thinking that I NEEDED the curved blades and rotating handle. The grips on the handle are simple, but perfect for what needs to get done. I love this razor, and I’m definitely continuing my subscription.
Kyle’s opinion: I hate shaving, but I definitely need to. This razor was really smooth and gave me a surprisingly close shave. I’d say it’s about the same as far as comfort and closeness to the other razors I buy when they are on sale (Schick, Gillette, etc.). I paired the razor with the Shave Butter (below), and it was pretty incredible. My face feels smooth and soft, and I’m actually not minding having to shave again tomorrow. It’s a great value, that I’ll pay only $6 a month for, definitely.
If the awesome value of these razors isn’t enough, when you create your monthly box, you’ll have the option to add on some fun items to enhance your shaving experience.
The One Wipe Charlies aren’t meant for shaving – but for other things you’ll do in your bathroom. These peppermint infused wipes help make you feel super clean after “taking care of business” and are even flushable! These would be really cool for camping or road trip adventures, because they are individually wrapped, and small enough to take anywhere.
When shaving gets out of hand (maybe the rock concert you’re performing gets too wild?), or your blade is too dull, razor burn sets in. Yuck. Men know how uncomfortable this is on their face, and women feel that burn under their arms and on their legs all too often. This Dr. Carver’s Miracle Repair Serum helps calm the skin and reduces signs of redness after shaving. Getting the bumps and burns from razors won’t be painful for too long with this stuff! It really works, too – Kyle has a sensitive spot on his chin that constantly gets razor bumps. He dabbed on a drop or two of this stuff, and within 10 minutes, the redness was gone and the bump was barely visible! You can use this all over your skin, or keep it for spot treatment of troubled areas.
Instead of shaving cream, this Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter is your new go-to tool for shaving! With very minimal scent, this butter is nice and creamy, which makes it easy to spread around on your face (or legs for the ladies!). Letting your skin “marinate” with the butter for about 15 seconds will enhance your experience. It goes on clear, and helps make your shave even closer and softer.
After shaving, men need a little more than a splash of water on their face to relieve the irritation. Dr. Carver’s Magnanimous Post Shave has a soft, sweet, manly scent and is nice and thick. It hydrates and calms your face down after being brutalized by razors. Kyle LOVES this product, and has continued to use it every day. He says that it doesn’t feel like he just shaved after he puts it on, and his face feels smooth and refreshed all day.
