While we like to promote a pretty strict “no-shave” agenda here at Chubstr, we do understand that there are actually many men out there who like stay clean-shaven. We also have a very clear understanding of the hassle that goes along with forgetting to add something to the cart while doing your monthly or weekly necessity shopping. If that necessity you constantly forget to throw in the cart is a razor or replacement blades, then we’ve got a solution for you.
Dollar Shave Club, like other sites we’ve featured (Manpacks and Tietry, to name a few), attempts to solve at least one of life’s little annoyances, but delivering razors and replacements blades right to your door once a month. These aren’t your average drugstore razors or your fancy, overpriced brand-name razors. They are specially designed and made exclusively for and by Dollar Shave Club. The service offers three packages to choose from, ranging from $1 per month to $9 per month.
For just $1 a month ($3 total with shipping and handling) you can sign up to receive the Humble Twin razor. This razor, as it’s name implies is a basic, twin-blade. With your first month’s order you will receive the razor handle and five cartridges. Each month after that, as long as you maintain your subscription, you’ll receive five cartridges. Each cartridge is made of stainless steel with an aloe vera strip for moisture. They are constructed with a shallow pivot head to contour your face and provide a nice, clean shave.
If you want to take it up a notch and pay just a little more, for $6 a month you can try the 4X, or as the company likes to refer to it, “the Lover’s Blade.” As with the Humble Twin, you’ll receive a compatible handle with your first month’s blades. Unlike the Humble Twin, the 4X features 4 stainless steel blades with an aloe vera moisture strip and a wide, open back. The 4X also pivots 90 degrees for an even closer shave. Dollar Shave Club also touts the added bonus with the 4X is that your girlfriend can use it! The 4X subscription delivers four cartridges a month right to your doorstep.
And finally, for $9 a month, you can up your shaving game with The Executive subscription. Like the two before it, The Executive includes a compatible handle with your first month’s delivery along with three cartridges. These cartridges feature six stainless steel blades with a moisture strip that includes Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Lavender to help sooth sensitive skin. The Executive also features a rubber guard bar to bring your facial hair up for a deeper shave. This subscription features three cartridges per month, delivered to your door.
With Dollar Shave Club, you can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your subscription any time without penalty, making this a commitment-free and hassle-reducing subscription plan. The site also offers a free month of blades for every friend you refer, with the added bonus of free blades for life once you refer 1,000 friends (aim high!). So if you must insist on shaving regularly, Dollar Shave Club does offer a pretty painless way to go about keeping yourself supplied without having to think too much about it.
