Hair removal; it’s one of those things we hate to do but love the results of doing. I was lucky enough to work with a doctor who’s sister offered employees complimentary laser hair removal, so I had it done on my armpits. Let me just say, it is amazing! If I had the funds, I’d get it all lasered. 😜
Since lasering nearly my entire body isn’t a possibility at the moment, the next best thing (after waxing) is shaving. I loved my Schick Quattro razor, I’ve used it for years. But I’m sick of paying the $16+ price tag for replacement blades. My hair is super thick and coarse, and considering how sensitive my skin is, I have to replace my razor blade at least every other week or I’m left with angry, irritated skin. I’ve seen the commercials for Dollar Shave Club, I’ve seen the ads online. Well, one of those ads happened to pop up on my Facebook feed after I discovered my future in-law’s Chocolate Lab ate my Schick Quattro. Okay, she didn’t eat it, but she did chew it all to Hell. And that gave me the perfect excuse to join the club. 😊
•CHOOSE YOUR BLADE• There are three types of blades to choose from; the Humble Twin, the 4X, and the Executive. The Humble Twin offers, you guessed it, two blades. The 4X, you guessed it again, 4 blades. And the Executive boasts an impressive 6 blades. All blades are stainless steel. I went all in and opted for the Executive. You can read more about each blade by clicking HERE.
•PRICE• The prices range from $1.00 to $9.00; all handles are included in your initial shipment for free. Choose the Humble Twin for only $1.00 per month, and receive five replacement blades every month. You’ll have to pay an additional $2.00 for shipping every month, making your grand total $3.00. The 4X will cost you $6.00, the Executive is yours for $9.00. You’ll receive four replacement blades for these every month, and cost of shipping is included. Don’t think you’ll use four blades every month? You can choose to receive shipments every other month, or even freeze your account until you’re ready for more.
•PERSONALIZE• You can personalize your order every month by adding one or more of their awesome products to your box. This service was originally intended for men (they’re working on some prettier razor handles for us ladies), so some of these products don’t exactly wow me like they do our male counterparts.

Visit Dollar Shave Club to read about what each product is for. I added two bottles of Shave Butter to my order; I’m so happy I did! My sensitive skin loves that stuff, and I’ll definitely purchase it again in the future. It really is like shaving with butter!… clear butter that doesn’t clog your razor. 😉
•MY EXPERIENCE• I love the idea of receiving fresh blades delivered to my front door. I probably won’t need four new blades every month, so I’ve adjusted my shipments to arrive every other month. $9.00 for four blades, including shipping, is well worth it to me. The blades are of excellent quality, the handle feels nice in my hand, and I like the design. I’ve never gotten a closer shave. Usually when I shave in the morning I feel like I need to shave again that night, but alas!… it’s night and I’m still silky smooth. The blades are incredibly sharp, but I had no issues with cuts. The Shave Butter is, as previously stated, amazing. I like the formula and how smooth my skin felt after use. I also love that it’s clear. Ingredients include Golden Barley, Organic Prickly Pear Cactus, Pacific Sea Algae, Black Willow Bark, Oat Extract, and vitamins A, C, and E. It helps fight ingrown hairs, redness, dryness, and other irritations. The only even slightly negative thing I have to say about this subscription is there are no feminine razor handles to choose from, but really, that’s not a big deal at all. I added a feminine touch to mine by using nail polish to paint the white portion of the handle. This is Black Cherry Cordial, by Top Shelf Lacquer. Voila!… it’s pretty now. 💁🏻
•MY VERDICT• So, do I think you should give Dollar Shave Club a try? Absolutely. There’s zero obligation to stay subscribed, and if you’re not happy with your purchase, let them know; they’ll give you a full refund, guaranteed. There’s nothing to lose!… except your unwanted hair.
