The Best Razor Clubs for Women 2019
There are SO many things to consider when shopping for a new razor. So we tested five up-and-coming women’s razor clubs… read more
Razor subscriptions and shaving clubs allow you to get all of your shaving needs, including razors and shaving cream, auto-shipped to you, usually for less than you’d pay at the store. The question is: is a shave club right for you? We’ve reviewed the top brands to help you decide!
Best One-Stop Grooming Brand. This well-known shaving club features lots of options for razors (number of blades, handle styles) and more—it’s a one-stop shop for shaving and shower products, skincare, hair care, and even oral care products that you can get auto-shipped to you on a regular basis! Buy it here.
Best for Shaving in the Shower. Billie is lightweight, comes in 5 colors, and features a large charcoal strip to soothe skin while shaving. We love that their razor comes with a magnetic holder for your shower wall. Billie also offers a small selection of body care, skincare, and hair care products. Buy it here.
Best Feel. Harry’s cartridges feature quality German blades—they actually have their own blade factory that’s almost a century old! Harry’s reusable handle has a soft grip, yet is perfectly weighted for a great shave. Check out their body products, too. Buy it here.
Best for the Environment. This rose-gold safety razor is pricey, but it creates less waste and promises a close shave with less irritation than most cartridge razors. Oui Shave is our pick for sensitive skin and people with coarse hair. Buy it here.
Best for Those Who Don’t Shave Often. Flamingo (Harry’s women-focused counterpart) comes in 3 colors and has a great weight and grip. Flamingo doesn’t have a subscription option, so it’s best for people who don’t shave regularly. They also offer wax strips for face and body (something we’ve only seen from this shave club). Buy it here.
I’ve been seeing a lot about Billie and Flamingo, two new subscriptions for women’s razors. I’m a current Dollar Shave Club… read more

Yes, if you prefer:
Refills shipped right to your door, plus shaving cream and other grooming products. All of the brands we recommend allow you to easily manage your subscription online - choose when you get your refills, add or remove products from each order, and cancel as you see fit.
No, if you prefer:
New blades only on an as-needed basis, as opposed to refills on a regular schedule. Also, if you like a specific brand of shaving cream or other shaving supplies, know that each of these subscriptions only offers their own brand of grooming products.
Cartridge razors are the type most commonly found in shave clubs. Most companies offer their own brand of razors with reusable plastic or metal handles and disposable blade cartridges, which you can have auto-shipped to you. Cartridge razor clubs are usually more affordable to get started with (all of the clubs we recommend are priced competitively with each other), and we find that these multi-blade razors are easy to use and convenient.
Safety razors are a newer addition to the subscription space, but these shaving tools have been around for over 100 years. They come in 3 simple parts and only require a single blade that gets replaced every 1-5 shaves, depending on the brand. (New packs of blades can be auto-shipped to you.) While they take some practice to master and have a higher cost of entry, they are more eco-friendly and promise a closer shave with fewer ingrown hairs, particularly for those with coarse and curly hair.
