Dollar Shave Club Review

Shaving is expensive, no matter where on the gender spectrum you are. Between my husband and I we use to spend about $30 a month on just razor blades alone. That is a lot of money for something that is basically just a sharp edge and a handle. While poking around on Twitter one day someone I follow mentioned signing up for a subscription program called The Dollar Shave Club. The Dollar Shave Club works like this, you choose the plan you want (more on that in a bit) and every month a fresh pack of razors is shipped to your door for a fraction of that it would cost me at the store.

There are three options to choose from, a $1 plan, a $6 plan, and a $9. The $1 plan consists of a regular handle that holds a 2 bladed razor head and 5 cartridges a month. This isn't a bad deal and if it was just me ordering it I'd probably do this plan. And for a buck you can't beat that, these are way nicer than the crappy disposable ones you can get for cheap.

The next plan up, the $6 a month plan, is what we have. You get a really nice handle, comparable to the ones my husband use to pay $30+ on, and 4 of the 4 bladed razor heads a month. We share these since my husband doesn't shave very often (though he should, dude can grow a FULL beard in just over a week or feel like a cheese grater just a few hours after shaving) so we go through a cartridge a week, which works out perfectly. And about every year or so they seem to send out new handles, though you can purchase a new one from them at any point for just a few dollars.

The final plan, the $9 a month one, is a 6 bladed head that has a personal trimmer edge built in. This is also a 4 cartridge a month plan, and is basically the Chanel of razors. If my husband shaved on a regular basis he'd use this one for sure.

No matter which plan you choose you'll be saving money and you can even have it delivered every other month if you want. They have other add ones too, like shaving cream or adult wet wipes. We are super happy with our subscription and have had it for almost 3 years now and will continue using them.
