“Shave Time, Shave Money”
This is the motto of the Dollar Shave Club. A monthly subscription service geared towards our fella’s, they provide razors, shaving cream, after shave lotion and wipes every month for either $1,(for single blades) $6 (for 4 blades) and $9 (for six blades.) The shaving cream and other extras are available as add-ons for a small cost per item.
I was sent a box for my hubby to test and review. He received a great box full of goodies for his own personal pampering. (shhhhh, I used his shave gel without him knowing…)
Let’s see what this is all about!
As you can see he received shave butter, razor blades, the razor, wipes, after shave, a fun roll of stickers and some instructional cards. We will look at those in a sec. They’re funny.
- Buttwipes made for men.
- 40 durable 5″x7″ sheets.
- Flushable & biodegradable viscose rayon.
- Soothing, calming, and refreshing.
- Gentle peppermint scent.
(I SO wish I had been involved in the making of this concept. Whoever created it has a sense of humor right up my alley.)
Anyway, back to the wipes. They are pretty nice! (yes, I used one.) They smell of peppermint and are soft to the touch. They are wet, without being too wet. They do the job quite well.
Dr. Carvers Magnanimous Post Shave Moisturizer-
- All Business
Instantly calms and soothes before hydrating
and locking in moisture for an all-day bounce.
- No Sticky, No Greasy
Works all day; you won’t even know it’s there.
- A Mighty All in One
Continues where others stop. Renewing
actives work quietly to improve skin
texture, while protective antioxidants
fight the aging process.
This unscented after shave lotion is quite nice. Containing ingredients such as Golden Barley, Prickly Pear Cactus, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aloe Leaf Juice, Oat Extract, Vitamins A, C, and E, it is very soothing. (again, I used his stuff, on my legs. NOT MY FACE.) It isn’t so thick that it feels heavy, but it soaks in and soothes the skin.
Dr Carver’s Easy Shave Butter-
Containing ingredients such as Golden Barley, Organic Prickly Pear Cactus, Pacific Sea Algae, Black Willow Bark, Vitamins A, C, E, and Oat Extract, I love this shave butter for my legs. Unfortunately, my hubby’s face didn’t react well to it. He has uber sensitive skin, and just about anything fragranced breaks him out. It isn’t heavily scented, but there is an aroma there. Personally, I love the smell, but you can’t argue with your hubby’s handsome mug.
Anyhow, my legs were pretty darn soft after I used it, so that is a good thing, right?
The razor handle is pretty heavy duty. He was also sent a pack of four “four blade” cartridges. The blades are super sharp and work well. That saying on the packaging cracks me up. That’s one of the things I love most about this service. Whomever works for them is brilliant. Here are a couple of the inserts that came with it. And here are a couple of videos from their website. (one of them has some censored language)
Amazing advertising, excellent products. I love this company!
Check out their website- you won’t be sorry.
