Most men don’t have a lot of toiletries to purchase. A stick of deodorant, some body wash or soap, and a few hair products usually do the trick – oh, and a razor. The humble razor is easily the most bothersome part of any man’s toiletry purchasing routine. You know you have to shave your face, but purchasing those razor blades on a monthly basis can get costly (not to mention the fact that it’s really easy to forget to buy blades – and what is a person supposed to do when a company stops making the right kind of blade for your razor?!).
So, what’s a guy to do? Well, a few other guys have thought and thought about the many problems associated with razors, and they have come up with a solution in the form of a website. This site is called DollarShave.com and it’s a great site based on a really simple notion. Want to know more? Here’s the scoop:
What Is DollarShave.com?
Remember when getting a shave used to cost just one dollar? No? Well, that’s okay, your grandpa probably does! Anyway, DollarShave.com is a website that will send you one razor blade per month for just one dollar. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “who wants to use a cheap blade? I’ll just cut up my face!” Well, here’s where you’re wrong: DollarShave.com can send you a new blade each month for $1, but these aren’t cheap blades. In fact, they are high quality blades that come in stainless steel form (no plastic here!).
All you have to do is choose the type of plan you want (more on that in a minute), and the company will send you your blade each month. That’s it; no more running to the pharmacy looking for a blade or trying to decide between a blade that squirts foam and one that vibrates – just plain old, top-notch, quality, razor blades at excellent prices sent straight to your doorstep. Simple, right?
Plans and Pricing Details
I didn’t lie when I stated that DollarShave.com can send you one blade per month for one dollar. You can purchase the one dollar plan, no problem, and you’ll get a free steel handle, five cartridges per month, and two blades per month – for one dollar. The other options are: The 4X (4 cartridges per month and four blades, and a double-blade razor) for $6 per month and The Executive (the best razor the site offers) for $9 per month (comes with three cartridges and six blades per month).
Really, guys, this couldn’t be cheaper. Unfortunately though, DollarShave.com only ships to addresses within the United States for the time being. One other small problem, when yours truly tested the sign up process, I was met with a small pop-up window that informed me that the site is currently overwhelmed, and I couldn’t actually start receiving razors until May 10th. I’m guessing that this startup gained a larger following than was anticipated earlier, and that the guys behind DollarShave.com are trying to keep up with demand (great work, guys!). But if you want to wait a few weeks, you can book your spot in line right now by signing up with your billing and shipping info. Before you know it, new quality razors will be at your doorstep.
