Customers select shipping frequencies and can add/remove items as needed. Dollar Shave Club requires no long-term commitments and has an easy cancellation process. They also offer a full, 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. DSC currently ships to the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Australia.

What We Love About Dollar Shave Club

  • A suggested grooming plan based on a series of questions concerning body-type, use frequency and product preferences helps to self-design the starter kit.
  • Ability to fully customize product plan and shipping frequency, with monthly and quarterly subscription options.
  • A strong product assortment goes beyond razor blade cartridges and handles, with offerings such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, moisturizer, shave butter, shave gel, and shaving cream as well.
  • Some products offer trial sizes to help decide whether it is a good fit before committing to full-size products.
  • Every initial order includes a free handle inside the Dollar Shave Club razor starter kit.
  • Easy to modify or cancel online or from the Dollar Shave Club app, and offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

What You Should Know

  • Some products like higher quality razors may be more expensive than brands available for purchase in-store or online.
  • Product formulas may not be the right fit for every skin type and grooming preference, although your needs (e.g. sensitive skin) are taken into account when tailoring your subscription.
  • Some users find that you “get what you pay for” with disposable razors, and since the expansion of becoming a one-stop shop, the $1 subscription is no longer part of the pricing model.

We'd Recommend Dollar Shave Club If

  • You don’t have time to visit the drugstore or know-how to choose grooming products and want a suggested grooming regimen.
  • You're interested in trying new grooming products.
  • You prefer the convenience of delivery-to-your-door monthly subscription service.
  • The flexibility to cancel at any time and the financial security of a money-back guarantee appeals to you.

"Get it, you'll love it! No regrets!"
Love this box. For the value, quality and price it is awesome! I use the 5 blade and let me yell you ladies it gets a very very close shave. The handle is weighted so it feels nice on your hand, adds to the ergonomic shae0fⁿ

It's a simple and easy subscription. Razor blades every month or two months and whatever add on products you want. I use this for my legs and sensitive areas and it works great. $7 (for the months they ship) for 4 fresh razor heads with 4 blades is super value. I used to use my old lady razors for months because the damn refills were so expensive. Do yourself the favor and get this if you like to shave man, or woman. It's honestly not worth it just to have a cute blue or pink razor.

I have been with Dollar Shave Club for over a year now and I can't say enough about the great quality of not only their razors/blades, but their other products (shave butter, post-shave cream), and customer service! Everything about this company is amazing! I read over 200 testimonials before I subscribed to Dollar Shave Club, and almost every one was stellar! Highly recommend!

I've been subscribed to this company for almost a year. I used to get the monthly plan, but I recently switched to the every other month plan. I've saved so much money with this service, and I also use their shave butter as well. It smells so good and it's really soothing on my skin.

Just got my first box today, 4 days after subscribing, and I can say I'm impressed. The quality of the handle and cartridges are very sturdy. Just because the razor isn't pink doesn't mean a chick can't use it! Will definitely keep this subscription for a long time.

I've had this for a few months. What I really like is they offer an every other month subscription. Really helps if you're not going to/ don't have to shave that often.
