Dollar Shave Club
A while ago I heard about Dollar Shave Club and thought it was a brilliant idea, and very well marketed. More recently, I was offered the chance to test their blades through a perk on Klout. I signed up for it and waited for it to arrive. I was sent a razor and 4 of their mid-range blades.
So far I’ve been very impressed with them, they are probably the closest shave I’ve ever had, but the blades do dull a little quicker than what I am used to from my Gillette Mach-3 blades. Still, 4 blades should easily last a month, and they send you new ones each month for the cost of $7 per month.
If I shaved often enough, I would probably sign up for the service, but I am rather lax in my shaving habits, and my 5 pack of Gillette blades usually lasts me about 2-3 months. If you shave regularly, I highly recommend the service. It’s cheaper than buying blades at the supermarket, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to buy them either, and the product is brilliant. 8 out of 10 from me.
