Dollar Shave Club Subscription Box Review – October 2015
Dollar Shave Club is a monthly razor blade subscription, with the option to add on shaving accessories.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. For more information on how we review boxes, please read the Review Process post.
The box: Dollar Shave Club
The cost: Varies by which option you choose. Subscriptions begin at $1.00, then up to $6.00, and then up to $9.00.
The products: Razors, shaving products, hair products, and…the One Wipe Charlie. I’ll let you click to check that one out.
Dollar Shave Club included a little newsletter this month, and it was all about Halloween. Fitting for an October box! (And not terrifying, like something I received in one of my other boxes! Review on that one to come…) If you’ve never looked at their website, I would recommend it for a laugh. Their marketing is quite amusing. The marketing is mostly directed toward men, but I’ve used many of their products and would recommend them all.
This serum is intended to be used after shaving, and it’s purpose is to soothe razor burn, ingrown hairs, and irritation. I used it after shaving my legs this morning. I did notice that I didn’t have any razor burn, even though I keep forgetting to swap out my blade. I can’t definitively say it was this (or the moisturizer), but I do think it made a difference.
This is a very emollient moisturizer. I used this after the serum this morning, and I still feel adequately moisturized at the end of the day. The size is a bit small, but it will work perfectly to go with me on vacation this weekend!
I currently am working my way through my previous shipment of the executive razor from Dollar Shave Club, so I haven’t tried these out yet. These were on my list to try next, because they claim this blade works well for men and women. They call it the “Lover’s Blade” because it was designed for both men and women, and they anticipate that your significant other will steal it.
The 4X Razor handle – Included free with your first shipment
Dollar Shave Club includes your first handle free. When you switch blades, they also ship you a free handle for the new blade. You can add on additional handles to your shipment at any time.
I’ve been using this shave butter for the past few months and really like it! It is non-foaming, and a little bit seems to go a long way. The price tag initially turned me off, but I think they have made me a repeat customer. It lasts forever and smells great!
The verdict: Dollar Shave Club is one of those subscriptions that saves me money each month. If I were to buy the razors I was previously using every month, I would be spending at least double on razor blades. These blades seem to do the job just as well, and I don’t even have to tempt fate by entering Target (anyone who can get out of Target under $100 is my hero…) when I run out of razors! The add on products all are high quality and reasonably priced for what you’re getting. I would highly recommend this subscription to anyone that shaves…which is most everyone!
