Dollar Shave Club for Women February 2018 Review

Each shipment contains this super fun publication with short articles and seasonal tips. February’s issue focused on love and relationships in the modern age. Engineers for the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel, gave advice on what they’ve learned programming for the app. Another article gives advice from a relationship expect on some of the mundane realities of living together, including sharing a bathroom, your finances, and your bed. Some of her best advice: Be considerate and sympathetic, especially when it comes to some of those less-than-desirable moments. Looking for something a little lighter than relationship advice? Head to the back of the booklet to solve a puzzle and some math problems.

Replacement Cartridges, 4 pack

Adding and removing cartridges is simple, and the pack can be stored anywhere from your shower to the cabinet. I’ve found them to last about two weeks when shaving every other day. I find the quality to be better than Gillette, at just a fraction of the cost.

The Executive razor handle (pictured above, not included in replacement cartridge shipment) is made of mid to heavy-weight materials and has a solid grip on all four sides. It maneuvers well along curves, even without a swivel head, so no need to fear those little nicks and cuts due to slipping. It gives a smooth, close shave and doesn’t cause any razor burn, even in sensitive areas. Adding a shaving cream on my legs, especially Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter (received in my first shipment but can be added to refill shipments for $8) made a big difference to how long the shave lasted and I didn’t need to lotion afterward. 

The Verdict: Dollar Shave Club provides great products and at reasonable prices. I’m such a fan of this subscription box. Personally, I don’t need 4 replacement cartridges every month, so I love the option for bi-monthly shipments. I also appreciated the minimalistic approach to packaging; the carton size was small and fit in my mailbox, so there wasn’t much to store until recycling day. Ultimately, I found this to be a great deal and I look forward to exploring their other products in the future!

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? This was a cartridge refill box and is fully customizable for each order. Find their list of products here.

I was first introduced to subscription boxes when I bumped into Bluum for my little one but quickly discovered new favorites like Hello Fresh and Scentbird. I love boxes that add a fun twist to the normal day-to-day activities and anything I can share with my family.

  1. I tried the executive. Very close shave, smooth legs afterwards. I found the blade on the back side of the razor was unnecessary and didn’t fit my routine. I actually nicked myself quite a few times before I realized. Duh! There’s a blade on that side. Considering canceling

  2. I am a subscriber but I did not know there is a woman’s box. I looked around and didn’t see anything about it. Is this review about a DSC regular box or a special woman’s box?

    • Good point, Katie. This is a female perspective of the regular DSC box.

  3. Count me in the club that loves this sub! My fiancé started ordering and I found myself always covering his razor so he started buying two packs of cartridges where we could both use it and oh my goodness they are the best razors ever! So smooth and it takes half the time to shave now!

    • Smart move on buying two sets of cartridges! No need to share when it’s so reasonably priced.

  4. I love DSC. So much better than the store brands I was buying. I love the heavy handles! I have both the 6- and 4- blade but prefer the 6- blade. I’m never going back to buying razors at the grocery store.

    • Agreed. I love that it’s one less thing to remember when I’m out shopping, too.

  5. Thanks for writing this review!! I’ve been debating between DSC and Billie to help combat razor burn and treat my irritable, dry skin better. I’d so be interested if you wrote a Billie review to compare the services!

    • I haven’t, but it might be something we can do in the future. Great suggestion!

  6. Unfortunately, when I hit the link for the coupon, I get that lovely spinning circle that won’t allow the page to open. I don’t know if this is a glitch on MSA’s end, or Dollar Shave’s end? I wish it would open for me to order this tho 🙁

    • I do not think it a glitch because the link worked for me. Maybe try it on a different device. I hope it works for you.

  7. I love this sub too! I have the executive and the 4 blade ones and like each.

    • That’s awesome. I haven’t tried the 4-blade yet, but it’s nice to hear positive feedback ahead of time.

  8. This is a great sub!! I originally got it for my son over a year ago but have since bought a second handle for myself. The razors last me about 2 weeks so I changed to bimonthly shipping. We also purchase the shave butter on a regular basis and have purchased shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand cream, hair gel, tooth paste and can say that we’ve been impressed.

    • The bi-monthly option is a big win for me, too. It’s great to hear you love so many of their products! I’m excited to try more of them.
