Dollar Shave Club Razor Review
Update (July 7, 2015)
It's been 2.5 years and I'm still using the Dollar Shave Club Razors.
They have expanded their product line and everything is solid (and inexpensive!). I haven't bought a regular razor in 3 years.
Check them out, you'll never go back to buying average, overpriced razors ever again.
If you want spend only $3/month on solid razors (maybe less), here's a nice little recommendation for you-
- Dollar Shave Club
(fyi- if you go through my link I get some free razors, I genuine appreciate it if you do, but this is worth signing up for regardless)
You can actually get a 4 decent twin-blades razors for $3/month ($1 Razors, $2 Shipping).
I usually don't default to a YouTube video (and I HATE watching ones that aren't funny) but this will give you the scoop.
Funny Commercial - Dollar Shave Club
I vehemently HATE spending money on razors that I know they are worth $.02 each and are marked up probably 100,000,000%.
How do I [think I] know this?!
Well, lets figure - this place, Dollar Shave Club, is in business to make money as well as possibly contribute to society.
They seem to be willing to send us 4-5 razor higher-end blade cartridges with 4+ blades for $6-9 and a new razor head for free when you need it.
6 cartridges for [a manual] Gillette Pro-Glide Fusion (the other best razor I've used) costs $21 and $30+ if you buy it retail.
That's about 3x more if you want a good razor.
So maybe it's not marked up 100,000,000% but I honestly refuse to believe that in the year 2013 that there are hundreds of millions of dollars spent on "developing razor technology," but maybe I'm wrong. Obviously we're paying for the research, market research, freight and all the expenses that it takes to bring a product to the market to be distributing via retail stores- but we're overpaying and we know it.
To spend $3 or $6 on 4 or 5 razors you would need to buy completely shitty generic razors that only cut slits in your face (or other areas) and are as good as useless pretty quickly. If you are bleeding and wondered if it's your shaving cream or gel, nope- it's your dreadful, awful, terrible cheap razor.
So it's a better deal (and as good as) high-quality razors.
And it's higher-quality than those dreadful, awful, terrible cheap razors.
I'm not going to go on-and-on- there's only so much I can say. The only reason this "Dollar Shave Review" isn't 2 sentences is because I'm trying to get some Google action on this post.
You can use the money you saved on a AK-47 assault rifle to defend your loved ones or some trail mix if guns aren't your thing.
Obviously I don't recommend anything I haven't tried or don't use, if you are interested, here is my subscription to Dollar Shave Club-
(I get the higher-end razors because I'm a huge snob)
In May 2013, I upgraded to the 'Executive' razor.
It's definitely as good as any razor I've ever used. It has the single blade on the head to do sideburns and precise areas-
(the Dr. Carver's Shave Butter isn't all that great, I'd skip that. The razor is awesome though.)
