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!
