Toni - just a little bit beauty-obsessed
Now that I have the patience to explain a bit better…
I have known about Dollar Shave Club (DSC) for a long time. I had considered subscribing, but my frustration with razor shopping had not reached a point where I felt the need to subscribe. Although the promise of four, four place razor heads popping up in my mailbox for $6 a month was an appealing idea.
Well, yesterday, Luke and I were doing our weekly grocery shopping. I had been using the Schick Hydro 3 for a few weeks. I prefer to buy mens razors as they seem to be cheaper and higher quality. Perhaps that’s because we women are expected to pay (and enjoy?) scented razor handles and other stupid nonsense. However, the Hydro 3 wasn’t cutting it and the basic Venus has never let me down. I caved, and grabbed a 4 pack of the 4 blade basic venus razor heads. The $12 price tag hurt.
I caught up with Luke, who was in the shower gel isle, and tossed the blades in the cart. He was asking the price, etc. and it was clear that $12 was insane to both of us. With my recent subscription to Ipsy & Birchbox, I thought about DSC again. ”Should I just subscribe to Dollar Shave Club?” I asked. Luke nodded and said, “Yeah, go for it”. So I returned the Venus heads, came home, and signed up for the 3 blade razor above.
Reviews for this razor seem good and I’m getting an extra blade/razor head AND delivered to my house for half the price of the Venus. I tend to use the same razor head as long as possible which leads to nicks and patchy leg hair. Now, I’ll know I’m getting 4 every month, so I’ll use a blade and toss it.
My first box is supposed to be here this week and I’ll be shipped a new box on the 23rd of every month. In case this has SOMEHOW made you want to subscribe, DSC gives each subscriber a referral link which will give me a $5 credit. Which, in case you’re wondering, I will use to get some shave butter that they make.
I’ll do pictures and a review and the whole shebang once I get them. I might shave one leg with my Hydro head and one with the 4X for a week to compare the quality of the shave and the life of the two razors.
