A few days after I began my subscription, I got a shipping email with DHL tracking information. My box was scheduled to arrive on July 3rd, but got here on July 1st! The box is nicely packaged and fit easily into my mailbox. I appreciate that Dollar Shave Club doesn’t use a box any larger than it needs.

IMAG2012I first opened the handle and it is really nice. It’s got a heavy weight to it and is beautifully made with an easy to grip design. I was impressed and the quality of the handle far exceeded my expectations for this service!

The cartridges came nicely packaged as well and were clean and of high quality. I received the 4 blade cartridges ($6/month for 4 of them). These cartridges have a small moisture strip at the top and are perfect for men OR women. I’ve been using men’s razors as a woman for a while and they work just fine.

Overall, the razor blades are good quality. I shaved with them and had little trouble. The shave was smooth and I didn’t have to make any double passes on my legs. I will say the cartridge seems a bit small to me from what I’m sometimes used to in a woman’s cartridge. Maybe the 6 blade cartridge is bigger. This just meant I couldn’t cover as much surface area at once, but it was nice for places like my bikini line. Overall, I’m pleased with this razor and plan to keep the 4 blade for a while. Maybe I’ll consider upgrading to the 6 blade in the future.

Here’s the handle with the blade together.

Dollar Shave Club also included this free sample of Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter, which was very smooth and silky. I don’t usually shave with a cream (I use lotion afterwards instead) and this was a nice treat!
