Ok I know many of you have heard of this before, but I’m just catching on. Thanks to a klout perk I was introduced to Dollar Shave Club
Thoughts on the Products
First a little history… I hate shaving! Some may call it lazy but I don’t shave unless I am having clients that day other wise I’ll go days with out shaving (went two weeks once). The price of razors also contributes to that. I’ll make a razor last a month sometimes (painful but true) and then buy the cheapest I can find (just as painful).
My klout perk had the Dollar Shave Club send me a razor handle, (4) four blade razors and their shaving butter. The day it arrived it so happen that I needed to run a razor across my face and it had been awhile.
I must say I was expecting cheap razors. I was quite surprised when I held the handle in my hand and it felt solid, well built. Razors as well were solid construction and work very well. Along with the shave butter it was one of the better shaves I have had.
The club offers 3 different razor levels, a twin blade, 4 blade , and a ‘why’ 6 blade. Monthly fees depend on which razor you wish, $1, $6, or $9 respectively, plus shipping. Although I wasn’t charged shipping on my first order when I joined. It was quite Simple to sign up (even sign up with Facebook) then you receive your razors in the mail each month. Your first order will include your handle at no charge.
Figure normally you will pay up to $15 for 5 razors or first time around $10 for handle and 2 razors. Then you have the time and hassle to go out and get them when needed. Ok you normally you will get them when you are out shopping any way, but this way you dont have to even think about it. They just show up and a whole lot cheaper as well. You can also add the shaving butter to your order when you run out.
Want to upgrade/downgrade your razor… no problem, just log in and click a button. If your facial hair is not as shaggy you can even change to every other month if you wish.
This is one of those “Why didn’t I think of this” ideas that should do well. At least I hope they do because as long as they are around I won’t be shopping for a razor again! Maybe I’ll shave a little more often now…
