Is a razor subscription right for you?

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 vs Safety Razors

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.
