Dollar Shave Club Review!

20141122_164342

Dollar Shave Club is a monthly subscription box focused on shaving (if you couldn’t tell by its name)! This is one of the better subscription boxes, where you really get a good bargain!

Dollar Shave Club was kind enough to send me this box to review, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it is! This is definitely an essential subscription to have.

Dollar Shave Club has three sign up options, starting at $1! Yes. ONE DOLLAR! There is a slight catch to their $1 plan though, because you have to pay $2 shipping. Still, at $3, this is a really great deal!

With their $1 ($3?) plan, you will receive 5 razor cartridges with 2 stainless steel blades. Their “The Humble Twin” razors are described as a great basic shaver for guys (or gals) who dig simplicity and precision.

With their $6 plan, you get 4 razor cartridges with 4 stainless steel blades. Their “The 4x” razor is said to give you a gentle shave in one stroke. SHIPPING IS FREE!

With their $9 plan, you will receive 4 razor cartridges with 6 stainless steel blades. Their “The Executive” razor is said to be like a personal assistant for your face. SHIPPING IS FREE!

Another great thing about Dollar Shave Club is that you can choose to receive your cartridges either monthly or bi-monthly! That is great for someone who doesn’t need to shave as often. You also get to keep the razor handle! So, even if you switch to a different plan, the handle is yours (along with the new one)! There are also extras that you can add on to your monthly box at any time.

Dollar Shave Club sent me their $6 plan with all the fixings! With that being said, let’s open it up and see what’s inside!

I love the packaging! It feels sort of masculine, and I get the barber shop vibe.

It came equipped with lots of info cards with information on all of the items with funny explanations. It really gives the box some charm!

The 4x + 4 cartridges

This is such a great razor! It has 4 stainless steel blades that give a close yet gentle shave. The handle provides great grip, so you won’t have any slip ups in the shower (or wherever you shave).

You get 4 cartridges monthly (or bi-monthly) for just $6, and SHIPPING IS FREE!

Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter (6 oz)

This shave butter is non-irritating and safe for sensitive skin! It is designed to give you the closest, gentlest shave imaginable. I love that it’s non-foaming! I prefer butters and creams, because it’s much less messy.

You can add Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter as an extra for $8 any month!

Dr. Carver’s Magnanimous Post Shave Moisturizer (3.4 oz)

This moisturizer has a featherweight formula that calms and soothes skin, while also hydrating and locking in moisture. It contains active ingredients that can improve your skin texture, as well as protective antioxidants. I love that it’s non-greasy! That is a definite plus.

You can add Dr. Carver’s Magnanimous Post Shave Moisturizer as an extra for $9 any month!

One Wipe Charlies (40 wipes)

Okay. So… These are like baby wipes, but for dudes. They feature a strong, yet soft and flushable cloth wipe with a gentle and effective cleansing solution. The Aloe Vera and Chamomile are naturally soothing, while the Cucumber and Peppermint scent leave you feeling clean. They also contain Vitamin E to leave your skin feeling hydrated. I like that they contain no parabens and are never tested on animals!

You can add One Wipe Charlies as an extra for $4 any month!

Dr. Carver’s Miracle Repair Serum (2 oz)

This Miracle Repair Serum was designed to combat razor bumps, burn, and ingrown hairs! Its concentrated formula works to calm your skin and alleviate any irritation, while also helping to reduce any signs of redness and/or inflammation.

I couldn’t find this item anywhere on their site as an add on item, so let’s just say it’s $12.

This box with the add ons (minus the repair serum), would cost you $27. You don’t have to add on any extras that you don’t need or want, so that would bring you back to $6 + FREE SHIPPING for the razors!

I love that you have the option to pick between monthly or bi-monthly, and that you can switch around your add ons (and razor!) at any time! This is a subscription that has true value. Personally, razors cost me between $18-$20 for the same amount and style, so $6 is a REALLY great deal! I definitely recommend checking them out for yourself.
