Inside a regular publication that I receive through the post, I found a leaflet advertising the Dollar Shave Club, an online and mail-order shaving experience, that will regularly send you razor blades, shaving handles, shave creme and other shaving products through the post.
I had tried one of these in the past and I did not like it, but then the six-bladed razor caught my eye and I became interested, and as it was only £5.00, using the promo code, for a shaving handle, a pack of four six-bladed razors and ‘shave butter’ (as they call it), I decided to give it a try.
Ordering From The Dollar Shave Club.
I went to the website and looked at the available shave products, and noticed that there were three types of razor blades available, a twin-bladed razor, a four-bladed razor and a six-bladed razor, there was also an assortment of shave creams, prep scrubs, repair serums etc. I also noticed that these products were available in handy travel size tubes that one could take into an aircraft cabin with ones hand luggage. I thought that this is very handy for when you want to go away for a few days with a budget airline.
I decided on the executive six-bladed razor and ordered the trial pack for £5.00, ordering was pretty straightforward, and there are options to pay securely with debit or credit cards and PayPal if you wish to.
A few days later I received my order via a parcel courier, and I opened up the small package with great anticipation. I was taken aback by the stunning razor handle that I saw, the pack of six-bladed razors, a tube of Dr Carver’s ‘shave butter’, a mini magazine called ‘Mel’, that seemed to contain useful or useless information, depending on how you viewed it, and as it was a Saturday I couldn’t wait till later on to try my new razor.
The Actual Shave.
In the bath that evening, I applied the shave butter, grabbed my shave handle with a brand new six-bladed razor attached, and began shaving my bearded growth off. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness of the blade as it cut through my whiskers and the nice scent of the shave butter. I was able to reach all of those hard to get contours on my face, and my skin was left feeling smooth and moist with no razor burn.
Dollar Shave Club recommends that you change your razor blade once a week, so a pack of four blades will last you about a month. Blades will be sent automatically but you are able to change the frequency of your order to suit. You can also add to your next order, change it completely or buy more products on demand, an e-mail confirmation will be sent when your next order has despatched.
My old razor handle was battery powered and vibrated when in use, but handles from the Dollar Shave Club do not have this feature, something that I thought I would miss, but I haven’t so far.
The Dollar Shave Club is a very convenient and modern way to buy your shaving kit, ensuring that you will never have to shave with a blunt razor again. I have quite often had to use a blunt razor because I have either forgotten to buy blades, or the supermarket is out of stock.
It has also opened my eyes to skin care products that I would never have dreamt of buying. Let’s face it, by shaving you are running a very sharp blade over your skin every day and this cannot be good for the skin. So the shave, for me, seems to be much better and my skin feels a lot better even hours after I have shaved.
If you are thinking of having your razor blades and shave kit delivered in the post, Dollar Shave Club offers a referral program and you can get your trial kit for £5.00 by going to the Dollar Shave Club I would definitely recommend that you try it now.
