Dollar Shave Club Review - Men's Subscription Box

Dollar Shave Club is the original razor subscription service, and they recently added a few new products to their line up, so I thought it deserved a mini-review!

The Box: Dollar Shave Club

The Cost: $6 a month for 4 razor cartridges and a handle. (Other options available).

The Products: Dollar Shave Club offers 3 razor options: $1, $6 and $9 a month. They also recently added shave cream and wipes.

Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter – Value $8

The 4X Blade Cartridge Pack – Value $6

My boyfriend and brother both find the razor blades from Dollar Shave Club to be equivalent in quality to Gillette, etc., and a lot cheaper! This Shave Butter is a new item so I thought we should add it to our subscription to check it out. I like that it isn’t an overpowering scent – I think this could probably work for men and women. It also is made with natural and organic ingredients – impressive for only $8!

Verdict: For $14 a month, I think the Dollar Shave Club combo of razor blades and shave butter is a really good value. (Of course you don’t have to buy both – you can pick and choose what you want each month). My brother just went back to college for the fall semester, and I’ve been setting him up with some practical subscription boxes (Honest Company) and some more fun subscription boxes (Bespoke Post), and I’m going to sign him up for Dollar Shave Club today – I definitely recommend it!

  1. New subscriber here. Would like to see all three boxes you guys offer. Where do I look? Is there any promo codes for November?

  2. So – I’ve tried this dollar shave club in the past. The shave butter is excellent. Absolutely worth the $6. Great product – and easy to use. The problem though is that I have a very rough and thick beard (basically have a full beard by lunch). And compared to Gillette or other razors on the market – these can wear down a lot faster. For me, I was able to get one shave out of these before I had to switch to the next blade. Which – I suppose is the point – but if you get 4-5 per month one blade should last you 3-5 shaves.
    Not so much for me. By shave 3 ended up with a couple of knicks and over the course of 2-3 weeks the handle wore down enough to the point where it didn’t snap in half – but folded in half over the weight of the blade.
    Definitely worth the try – not for me – but for those with a more “normal” beard a good alternative.
    For me – I’ll stick with buying my Gillette razors from at $16. Four of those will last me 2 months easy.
