The Dollar Shaving Club

Have you heard of The Dollar Shave Club?  (this is not a paid post!)

I hadn't. Until The Husband introduced it to me. To put it mildly my husband has a "thing" against razors. He is always complaining about how expensive they are.  Until he found The Dollar Shave Club. 

Here is a little question and answer session I had with The Husband. 

Me: Explain, dear Husband, what is your beef with shaving razors?

The Husband: I've been using the same brand of razors for years. So long I can't even put a number on it. Replacement blades costs over $3 each and  I just can't seem to buy them anymore. I guess I'm getting cheap in my advanced age. I'd use the same blades for weeks, until it was rusted and pulling the whiskers out of my chin. Oh, and I HATE disposable razors. They all suck.

Me: How did you hear about The Dollar Shaving Club?

The Husband: I heard about the Dollar Shave Club though a friend at work. He's extremely risk adverse and cheaper than me. He knew I have this pet peeve about expensive razor blades. He figured I'd join the Dollar Shave Club and he could get an honest review once I started using the product.


Me: How long have you been a member of The Dollar Shaving Club?

The Husband:  I joined the Dollar Shave Club a little over three months ago.

Me: Are you pleased with their product?

The Husband:  I'm very happy with these razors. As stated above, I used the same razor for years. That being said, it took a little time to get used to the handle and they way the blade pivots on the head. By a little time, I mean three weeks or so. The handle has a little heft to it and feels good in the hand. It feels quality, like it'll last a long time. I'm equally as pleased with the razors. They are very sharp right out of the box, I mean there's not much that's better than running a brand new razor blade over your chin whiskers! And at a little over a buck a blade, I can afford to change my blades more often.

Me:Any last thoughts or comments you would like to express?

The Husband: Addition comments? Well, my buddy asked me how I liked the razors, he's now a Dollar Shave Club member as well as another friend that over heard out conversation about the Dollar Shave Club. The Club gave me a little account credit for the referrals which was really cool. I put that credit towards some One Wipe Charlies. I ordered three packages. One for myself and two for Christmas gifts. I mean who doesn't deserve to have their backsides to be minty fresh for the holidays?

The Dollar Shave Club cost $6.00 a month. The first month you get a razor handle and 4 blades. Every month after that you get 4 blades. That is $1.25 per blade. They also have twin blades and in case you need more, they have an eight blade deal as well.  The super cool thing; there is no commitment  You can cancel this membership at any time and walk away. I love their humor. Each package comes with a funny card. Their video's make me laugh. 

The Boy is now shaving so I purchased him a membership. The holiday's are right around the corner. Do you have a shaver in your life that might appreciate The Dollar Shave Club?  If so, use the link below and check it out!

  1. That sounds awesome! I feel his pain about expense and shaving in general, but being female it is a bit of a faux pas to be running around looking like Chewbacca, or in my case, since I am so short and ewok! I just might have to look into this!
