Dollar Shave Club – Delivery

One of the guys at work told me about the Dollar Shave Club a few weeks ago.  After watching the funny website video I knew I had to give this a try.

Within 3 days of my order I received the following email:

Wow. We’re blushing.

Over the past week, you have validated more than 18 months of hard work & preparation. We are thrilled you think there’s a better way to shop for a shave, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to prove you right.

Safe to say, we weren’t expecting the demand we saw. After all, this was our label printer last week:

Well, I’m happy to report my order arrived today & everything looks pretty good.  More updates after I try these razors out for a few days.

Dollar Shave Club

This company has received a lot of coverage on the Internet lately & I ended up giving it a try to see if it’s really worth it or not.  Check out the video below (funny) and the details are below that.

I signed up for the $6 a month plan & will report back after I’ve had a chance to try the blades out.  If these things are any good it’s going to be a big cost savings, especially if I can get other members of the household to sign up too.

Five Blades Really Are Better Than Three!

After a LONG run with the Mach-3 I decided to take a chance with the newest crop of razor systems on the market.  I picked up a Gillette Fusion Power razor at the local megamart & gave it a try.

I must admit I was pretty skeptical that this “new and improved” razor would be any better than my current kit.

I’m a firm believer that shave prep is what makes the difference.  I always shave in the shower after letting by shave cream of choice do it’s magic.

The Fusion razor has 5 tightly spaced blades on the front and a single blade on the back for those hard to reach places.  The Power model has a vibrating handle that is supposed to make the razors work even better.

To be honest it was love at first stroke.  There was a noticeable difference in the feel of this razor as opposed to the 3-blade unit I’ve been using for years.  The initial thought was that I was not applying enough pressure.  It just did not feel like it was doing anything.

I quickly found out it was not only doing something it was doing it with far less effort than I’ve ever had to use before!  I’m a pretty meticulous shaver and I actually ended up overdoing it.  Afterward I did have a slight case of razor burn but that was my own fault.  Subsequent uses have cured that problem  (as did a liberal use of Zirh Sooth) & I’m growing more and more impressed with this razor every day.

If you are growing tired of your current shaving regimen and you’re looking for a change, check out the Gillette Fusion series of razors.  Like anything in the shaving world, the refills are where Gillette makes their money.  I’ve read online that people are getting over a month out of each cartridge.  I can live with that!  I’ll plan on reporting back later this year with a long-term review of the Gillette Fusion Power razor.
