As men becoming increasingly conscious of their appearance and aware of what they’re putting on their skin, now more than ever they’re turning to the age-old practice of wet shaving products. Who wouldn’t want to swap out chemical-filled shave gels for skin nourishing soaps, oils and after shave? That’s where Chisel Shave Club comes in; they stepped into the subscription box arena towards the end of 2015, and have been satisfying customers with their impressive line of men’s shaving and personal care products. They’ve put the word out that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to men’s skin care; each man’s skin and facial hair is unique, and they have an increasing amount of customers ditching their disposable cartridges and opting for the high quality shave they’ve been looking for.
I, Sarina, received Chisel Shave Club’s December box to review. I’m always excited to get something new and special for my husband to try out, as men often seem particularly difficult to shop for. This year’s Valentine’s Day gift came early this year, in the form of a handsome navy blue box filled with men’s shaving goodies. I was so excited to open this as soon as it came! I told my husband, Jon, that he had an early gift that I thought he would love – and I’m so glad I was right! Ironically, he had been considering changing up his shaving routine lately, but he hadn’t told me – so now he thinks I’m psychic!
Together we opened the subscription box, and found it jam-packed with awesome stuff: a stainless steel shaving handle, 2 packs of stainless steel blades (five in each box,) Red Leaf Shaving Soap, Dr. Squatch Citrus Soap (my personal favorite, it smelled amazing!) and Brickwell Face Wash and After Shave. The first time Jon tried out the wet shaving products, he didn’t read the directions and he only used the shaving soap and aftershave; he loved the smooth shave he got from it, but didn’t feel like it was anything special, especially because the soap didn’t really lather. I asked him why he hadn’t read all the directions and try all the products that came in the box; like any typical man, said he only wanted to use the stuff he was used to using.
After a little giggle on my part, I encouraged him to try the whole system that they sent to him. You should have heard him raving about it after that! First he showered and used the Dr. Squatch Citrus Soap (yum!) and the Brickwell Face Wash. After showering, he tried the shaving products again. This time he had gotten the hang of making a nice rich lather of the Red Leaf Shaving Soap, and got another super close shave.
He liked that the soap and single blade razor didn’t irritate his sensitive skin, and commented more than a few times how smooth his skin now felt! He finished up the the Brickwell After Shave and boom! it was like he was a new man. The only thing he said he wished he had was a special cup or small dish to lather up his shaving brush – since he loves Chisel Shave Club products so much, I think I can make that happen!
This subscription box is available for $29.99 a month, or you can opt for a prepaid option and get a 3-month subscription for $28.99/mo (razor handle and brush are an additional cost that can be added to the first box,) a 6 month prepaid plan for $27.99/mo that comes with a free safety razor handle and shaving brush in the first box, or a 1 year prepaid plan for $26.99/mo that comes with a free safety razor handle and shaving brush in the first box.
Never again will you need to fret about what to get the special man in your life when his birthday rolls around – Chisel Shave Club is the way to go! Each month they’ll send him a fabulous box of wet shaving essentials, which will always include shaving soap, razor blades, aftershave, lotion, pre-shave oils, and other men’s grooming items. There will always be something new for him to look forward to, and rest assured you’ll always have a soft cheek to kiss!
