I Thought Razors Were All The Same – Then I Tried the One My Friends Swear By

Call me a born skeptic, but while on vacation with my BFF this summer, she began to tell me about this new razor subscription with Athena Club, and I instantly had my doubts. Aren’t all razors the same? It was hard for me to believe that Athena Club’s promises of a closer shave, less irritation, less nicks and cuts, and less ingrowns were true.

I refused to turn my back on the razors I’d been using since high school, so I held out ordering for months. Eventually I gave in to the peer pressure and ordered my set. Here’s what I found when I opened up my package and jumped in the shower…

First impressions

After I shaved my legs, I immediately noticed how smooth and silky my legs felt. The shave was so close that I didn’t have to shave again for 4 days, when I usually have to shave every other day with my drugstore razor. I have to say, my favorite part of the razor was the ergonomic handle–I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and when I hold an object for a long period of time, my wrist begins to ache. But not with Athena Club’s razor! I was also able to get to the hard to reach places with little effort.

Athena Club’s razors are effective and unique

Things like a dull blade, dry skin, or shaving with an old razor can all contribute to pesky shaving bumps or razor burn. Athena Club is here to save the day–no matter how many times you shave in a day, every blade is designed to glide across your skin smoothly, thanks in part due to the hydrating hyaluronic acid serum strip.

The ergonomic handle expertly designed to glide over every curve on my body is the perfect partner to the 5 blades that get more hair in one swipe than any other razor I've ever used. The aluminum body and fiberglass internal core mean that the Athena Club razor is built to last, and when you combine that with the shea butter and skin-soothing serum, you know you're getting a product that works, but more importantly, works well.

Athena Club’s razors are affordable

For as effective as the Athena Club razor is, you’d think it would come with some massive sticker shock. Quite the opposite, actually! Athena Club’s razor kit is under $10 and includes 2 five-blade cartridges, 1 razor handle, and a handy magnetic hook for storing your razor in the shower with ease. Plus, with free shipping, you really can’t go wrong. Also, Athena Club razors come in eight different colors, so you can pick the one that brings you the most joy.

When it’s time for a deodorant refill or you’re out of shaving cream, look no further than Athena Club’s Bundle & Save options. It’s simple: when you’re shopping for things like body wash, lotion, shaving cream, and even period products or probiotics, you get a discount when you bundle in groups of 3, 4 or 5, saving you 5%, 10%, and 15%, respectively. This makes Athena Club cheaper than my drugstore razor, and you can get all kinds of goodies delivered to your door.

My final thoughts

Though I started out a true skeptic, the prices and quality of Athena Club can’t be beat. It’s no wonder they are one of the most popular brands among shaving subscriptions! My sensitive skin remained blissfully calm, but my coarse hair was removed in one swipe.

For smooth, long-lasting comfort, I think Athena Club offers one of the best razors out there. Don’t hold out like I did–secure your razor kit today!
