Dollar Shave Club is a super affordable subscription that promises to deliver “a great shave for a few bucks a month”.
How affordable is “super affordable”, you ask? As low as $3 per month! That’s how flippin’ affordable. You have a choice of 3 different types of razor: The Humble Twin (2 blades, 5 cartridges) at $3/month, The 4X (4 blades, 4 cartridges) at $6/mo., or The Executive (6 blades, 4 cartridges) at $9/mo. All of those prices include shipping too!
Oh yeah, you’ll probably need a handle for those cartridges right? Welp, those are free too! Every new member gets a compatible handle for their blades of choice. B-b-but wait! — There’s more! Decide to switch up your blades later on? They’ll send you a different handle. Fo’ FREE.
Still not totally convinced that Dollar Shave Club is super duper awesome yet? Do read on!
First look. Everything was snuggly nestled beneath a black layer of cushion-y goodness.
The Bathroom Minutes – Ah, a little light “toilet reading”. This fold out booklet includes random factoids and a quote by the almighty Mitch-effing-Hedberg (RIP). Anyone who quotes Mitch automatically gets 1,000 Cool Points in my book.
Info Cards – Oh, I should probably mention that they also offer a few add-on products. These info cards tell you about ’em. (I will too.)
The Razor/Cartridges – I was sent The 4X ($6/mo.). I was super impressed with the quality of both the handle and the cartridges. The handle is a lot heavier/well made than I’m used to (I use the dollar store cheapies) and the 4-blade cartridges give a nice, smooth shave.
Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter – This is one of the monthly add-ons. It’s a non-irritating shave butter that’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. It includes a bunch of natural, plant-based ingredients including oat extract, golden barley, and organic prickly pear cactus. It’s a generously sized 6 ounce bottle and sells for $8.
Dr. Carver’s Magnanimous Post Shave Moisturizer – I do believe this is the first time the word “magnanimous” has been used on my blog. It means “very generous or forgiving” (thanks Google!). That’s a pretty smart attribute to look for in a post shave cream. Thus, this gentle moisturizer will calm and hydrate your skin, as well as hook it up with some anti-aging antioxidant action. Add-on price: $9.
One Wipe Charlies Flushable Moist Wipes – These are… asswipes. Yep. Peppermint-scented asswipes. They’re flushable, biodegradable, and infused with aloe vera, chamomile, & other gentle, butt-friendly ingredients. Add-on price: $4.
Needless to say, I was pretty impressed with Dollar Shave Club. Of course, the add-ons aren’t included in a “normal” monthly box, but just getting the high quality razors for as low as $3/mo. shipped is a GREAT deal.
