Dollar Shave Club is an affordable subscription that promises to deliver “a great shave for a few bucks a month”.
When you subscribe, you’ll get your choice of a 2, 4, or 6 blade razor for just $1 shipped for the first month. From then on, they’ll ship a full cassette of cartridges every month for as little as $3. The razor choices are: The Humble Twin (2 blades, 5 cartridges) at $3/month shipped, The 4X (4 blades, 4 cartridges) at $6/mo. shipped, or The Executive (6 blades, 4 cartridges) at $9/mo. shipped.
Dollar Shave Club also offers their own line of men’s grooming products including shave butter, shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, hair products, and more. These are available as add-ons to your monthly box and for purchase on their own.
Since you can get your first box — includes a handle & 4 cartridges — for just $1.00 shipped, it’s absolutely worth trying!
Let’s see what’s in my February 2017 Dollar Shave Club box!
A peek inside! — I was sent additional products in my intro box for review purposes.
Info cards were included for each of the add-ons, letting you know how to best use them as well as highlighting some of their key ingredients.
I received Dollar Shave Club’s top-of-the-line razor — the 6-bladed “Executive”. It comes with 4 cartridges per box, which all feature 6 stainless steel blades that allow you to shave with ease. It also features a special trimmer edge built in “for the professional”. The handle itself is nice and weighty with a studded comfort grip.
This paraben/sulfate-free shave butter is designed to give you the smoothest shave ever. It’s formulated with natural, plant-based ingredients including oat extract, golden barley, Pacific sea algae, and prickly pear cactus. It’s a generously sized 6 ounce bottle and sells for only $8.
A rich, hydrating cream to help soothe the skin after shaving. It’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy, and provides long-lasting hydration with just a dime-sized drop. The formula includes aloe leaf juice, golden barley, prickly pear cactus, and protective antioxidants to help fight against environmental damage.
I believe these are newer offerings from Dollar Shave Club. The Wanderer shampoo includes hydrating pea protein and soothing balm mint that work their way down to the root for a deep clean. It’s sulfate-free so it won’t strip your hair of moisture or make your head feel dry and itchy. The conditioner is also free of sulfates, as well as parabens & synthetic dyes. It contains hair-softening chamomile & oil-controlling lemongrass to provide moisture without weighing it down. Both the shampoo and conditioner leave your scalp feeling cool and refreshed with a tingly mint finish.
Dollar Shave Club is a convenient, affordable way to get high quality shaving (and grooming!) products without having to leave the house (or pay overinflated prices). While I didn’t get to review them this time, I’m personally a big fan of their “One Wipe Charlies“. So soothing! 😉 — Remember, you can get your first box — includes a handle & 4 cartridges — for just $1.00 shipped!
