Since I have been in America for some reason I have seen the Dollar Shave Club come up way too many times! So finally I caved and joined the club. The first month of the Dollar Shave Club is literally just that a dollar!! What? Yes, that's right just $1 for a brand new razor and 4 razor blades but honey there is a catch. After your first month, your blades will be sent at their normal rates." However, the blades are super affordable starting at $1 and shipping is cheap too. Not too bad eh. . . BUT just how good can a $1 razor be?
Read more to find out my experience.
First off the razor comes in a super cute box and with some random pamphlets and a free tester too. The whole design is super indie and really Instagram worthy. No complaints there.
The products are designed to be very appealing to the eye. But let's be honest for a second.
In terms of practicality, I would give them a 3/10. The razor handle feels like it is going to break at any second. I have read a lot of reviews about them actually breaking in the first month! The razor blades are honestly horrible! I attempted to shave my arms, which have barely any hair, and that didn't even work. I had to go over the same spot several times! My legs are a whole nother story. I have no idea how grown men are expected to shave their beards with these razors. The razors I picked out are supposed to be their best. So I can only imagine what the others are like.
Would I use them again? Yes, simply in the hopes of seeing an improvement.
Would I buy them again? Nope, I am canceling my membership immediately.
Would I recommend them to a friend: Yes, if that friend had a teenage child who was just starting to shave. Since the blades are so blunt that they won't cut themselves!
Bonus: It came with a cute sample of thier "shave butter".
The Turkey pamphlet is super random but fun to read. The "members handbook" is a bit more practical and it explains more about the Dollar Shave Clubs.
