Dollar Shave Club sent a welcome handbook explaining how the program works and the type of add-on products I can place for future shipments.

They also reiterate that I’m never locked into a plan and can cancel at any time.  This note also mentions that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if I’m unhappy with any products, they’ll gladly refund.

The welcome booklet, like their website, has little jokes throughout and they are pretty funny. (I wish this one were true!)

They also include a monthly newsletter called, “The Bathroom Minutes” for some quality bathroom reading material. This month featured little notes on how to treat sunburn and some fun facts on everything to know about footlong hotdogs.

Let’s take a look at what’s in my first shipment!

The Executive Razor – $9 for 4 blades

This 6-blade razor sure did a nice job on its first shave. The stainless steel blades are quite sharp and paired with the Easy Shave Butter, and I didn’t cut myself once!

The Executive Handle, which is included for free in your first shipment, has a great weight to it and feels extremely well made and substantial. Anytime you switch to a different level of blades, a free handle is always included.

Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter – Cost to add: $8.00

This was my first time using this shave butter and I really liked it! It’s non-foaming, smells clean, and felt great on my skin during and after my shave. It’s also paraben and sulfate free for those with sensitive skin like myself.

Dr. Carver’s Magnanimous Post Shave Cream – Cost to add: $9

I used this cream after shaving my neck in the morning and my skin still felt soft and moisturized at the end of the day! The herbal smell is subtle, but quite nice and doesn’t compete with my cologne, which I appreciate.

Verdict: I really enjoyed my first experience with Dollar Shave Club! From the quirky humor on their site to the low priced razors and free shipping, I’m quite pleased. I look forward to trying out some of their other products like body wash and hair care in future shipments!

Do you know anyone that uses Dollar Shave Club? I’d love to hear more about the other products and what others are saying about them.

  1. Just got my first box for 1$ yesterday and i have to say i love it 🙂
    i chose the executer which comes with 6 blades and a sample of the shave butter.
    The handle is heavy and i actually got all around my knee with it where i normally don’t get all the hair 😉
    Once i used all of this box i might make this a longer sub.

    Definitely go get the 1$ box!! 🙂

  2. I can’t say enough good things about this sub. It’s really great and everyone I’ve recommended it to agrees! I originally got it for my 2 sons but decided it is great for women too. We’ve tried many of the products; shave butter, hair products, lip product, wipes, etc and we love them all. My 27 year old son usually uses products much more expensive than these and he says Dollar shave products are superior.

    • Thanks for the feedback! I can’t wait to try the other products they offer!

    • I agree with you!!

  3. The razors for this subscription are actually from a company called Dorco. If you buy them direct from the manufacturer, you can get them quite a bit cheaper and they run specials all the time. Fast shipping too!

    • While true, DSC has started carrying much more than the Dorco blades. The shave butter really is divine, and I kept my subscription with them for the longest time just for that. My husband loves the moisturizer with sunscreen.

      Of course, now you can order the other products without having to order the blades, but that wasn’t always the case.

  4. My daughter and I get this, but the 4X shaver. The handle is heavy on that one also and it just glides over my legs. I’m really impressed with this sub and the quality – especially for the price! We get new razors delivered every 3 months.
