Dollar Shave Club Review (Starter Box Deal Inside)

Dollar shave club review

Here’s my Dollar Shave Club Review!

I think we can all agree that paying for razors at the store is NOT fun. Those darn things are expensive!

For the longest time, I got away with buying whatever razors were on sale or cheap/free with coupons, but my frugal razor days came to an end when the hubs informed me they just weren’t cutting it anymore. Literally. He wanted the expensive Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors… I want to cry every time I purchase that package of 4 cartridges for around $25! Yikes!


So, after hearing about Dollar Shave Club from a friend, I decided I needed to test it out for myself. It seemed too good to be true! That’s why I decided to write this Dollar Shave Club review!

P.S. – I’m going to be very honest here and let you know that after watching my hubby use these lovely 6-blaze razors, I started using Dollar Shave Club razors for MYSELF! That’s right… I use these razors on my legs and pits too! 😀 This is an awesome shave club for women. You can watch my Dollar Shave Club Review on Facebook Live HERE!

Enter The Dollar Shave Club!

Like I said, years ago a friend told me about this awesome company he started ordering razors from. He said they were great and we really needed to give it a try, so I did!

First of all, shipping is FAST! And I was impressed with all I got for just $5!! You’ll totally “shave” time and money with Dollar Shave Club’s $5 Starter Kitover a $14 value!

Each starter kit includes ALL OF THIS!!

  • The Executive handle, which is Dollar Shave Club’s top of the line razor
  • Four Executive cartridges
  • Dr. Carver’s Easy Shave Butter (1 oz)
  • Wanderer Calming Body Cleanser (1 oz)
  • One Wipe Charlies (3 individually packaged flushable wipes)
  • Bathroom Minutes – DSC’s monthly newsletter
  • Best of all, free shipping!

My total came to $5 with tax and shipping included! Let’s not even factor in the extra cool things that are in the box, OR the really nice handle… but for FOUR blades, that comes to just only $1.25 per 6 blade razor. You’ll seriously pay about $6.25 for comparable razors from the store!

The “Executive” blade is the most expensive cartridge (and the best one… it has SIX blades and shaves SOOO nice!) and still comes to only $2.25 per cartridge per month after the initial Starter Kit! Pretty fab if you ask me!

How the Dollar Shave Club Works

You can buy the Dollar Shave Club’s Starter Kit for only $5 dollars, and after that, you’ll get a restock box about a month later with full-sized products of the trial sized ones you just got.

Don’t want full sized? You can TOTALLY customize what shows up in your box. It’s SOOO easy! You can pick your delivery day and the more items that are in your box, the higher your discount! Just want razor blades? No problem! Need to skip a shipment? No problem! Want to add some shave butter, shower gel, or toothpaste to your next box? You can do that too!

The Dollar Shave Club Starter Kit also has additional items like trial sizes of the One Wipe Charlies and Shave Butter, that you can add full sizes to your order every month or just when needed!

I ordered the full-size Shave Butter and the hubs loves it! It gets the job done and has a nice manly smell to it. We’ve been using Dollar Shave Club for years now and will NEVER go back to our old days of cheap razors!

Final Thoughts

Overall, I am very pleased with the ordering process, quick delivery time and product quality of the Dollar Shave Club. It’s been AWESOME to STOP spending so much money on razors at the store!! AND now my college-aged son is using Dollar Shave Club as well! (Hint: it’s an excellent gift idea!)

The only complaint I have about the Dollar Shave Club is that I wish I would have signed up sooner! Make sure to get your $5 starter kit as soon as you can, you will not regret it!

  • Melissa H.

    Looks like it comes in a nice box too … with a little bit of pretty paper, it could make a nice gift box.

    • Jessica

      I don’t have it in the photo but it does come packaged in paper. The box is a brown cardboard box but it’s sturdy and compact enough to fit in a typical sized mailbox.

  • Dana

    Just curious, how did your hubby like them compared to the Gillette razors he was using?

    • Jessica

      Sorry for the delay! He says they are very comparable. He thinks the Gillette’s give him a slightly closer shave but not enough to justify the price. The Dollar Shave Club razors get the job done.

  • Aimee

    I just joined off of your link! Excited to get the shipment. Thanks for the info.

  • Carrie

    Thanks a bunch!! I’m ordering right now. I was reluctant at first thinking they would be crap razors but I guess I was wrong. Excited to not have to worry about razors every month.

  • Helen in Meridian

    Well, did you ever pay full price for blades? We always have such great coupons that I never pay full price. I ended up with more whole razors that replacement blades only, but the price is right. You used to actually use coupons, not just get free credit from your followers. Wouldn’t 4 blades last more than a month unless you shaved your head?

    • Cathy

      Helen, you’re right… we USED to get free razors. But haven’t for quite awhile. And the first time I did this, I put my membership on hold because those 4 blades lasted me quite awhile. That’s with both my husband and I using the razors. You seem to be offended that we shared this deal with our readers. And no, I am not getting free credit by sharing this post, but the beauty is… others can!

  • Chris

    Hated shaving with these razors. Got a two month supply and the blazes were so cheap they felt used and jagged on the first shave. I was bleeding soon after I stopped shaving.

    • Becky

      Bummer you had a bad experience. In all honesty, they added a bunch of foul month stuff to their website, and we stopped actively promoting them several months ago, so I’m not sure if their quality changed. When we were promoting them, we had several fabs use their service, and they all liked it. It’s a shame when a product/company starts off great, and goes downhill 🙁

      • laura

        i just checked the video out at the top and yes i saw that i was a bit surprised but not offended but i know everyone is different i understand some people do not like that type of language i suggested on the facebook page o edit it lol i have no idea if they care or not. i will still be ordering from them as i am not offended easily and if it is a great product will have my orders forever . sorry for not seeing that sooner. best wishes

        • Becky

          No problem at all! We want to be sensitive to everyone out there, and for sure that will set off alarm bells with some of our readers, so we just choose to avoid it. I’m happy you like their products 😀

  • Anne Klein

    So, you are no longer using this?

    • Becky

      They updated their advertising and website to include unnecessary bad language. While the product hasn’t changed, we don’t promote or support those types of businesses.

      • laura

        um….i looked through there whole website and did not find anything foul mouthed or rude the only thing i found that SOME ONE might take offensive is on the butt wipes the comment “Extract the bad guy quickly.
        Get back to the base.” is that what you are talking about?

  • Sharla

    I am very skeptical about ordering these razors. I have pretty sensitive skin so I have to be careful on what type of razor I use. It would definitely be cheaper if I order these razors however, is the quality going to be just as good as what I use now?

  • Friend

    Links are no longer working. Just thought I’d let you know. I was definitely trying to order by going through someone’s blog, but eventually went straight to the product. If it makes you feel better. I was going to purchase before I read any blog posts. DH asked for it for Christmas.
