Thanks to Dollar Shave Club for sponsoring this blog post! #ad As always, all words and opinions shared are honest and my own.
Whenever I accept a sponsored post, it first has to pass through some filters. Is it a product/brand I already use and love or is it something I’ve been curious about trying? Do I think my readers would be interested? If the answers to those questions are yes, then I usually agree without hesitation. When this opportunity came through, though, I hesitated. Would I have to shave my legs on my blog? And that gave me pause! So, I did a ton of research on Dollar Shave Club and came away from that research excited to try it. Many non-sponsored reviews I read raved about the razors, the toiletries, the convenience, and the cost-savings.
Okay, I’m intrigued and I think my readers might be, too.
Don’t worry… I’m not going to shave for an audience, but you might see a little leg. Put your sunglasses on.
So, let’s dive in. First of all, I assumed that the Dollar Shave Club was just a thing for men, but that’s not the case. Just because the razor is blue instead of some shade of pink, purple, or turquoise does not mean it’s not for women, too. A good razor is a good razor. And you know what I learned after using this blue razor?
…well, I’m getting ahead of myself.
Let me start with the box. Everyone was very interested in the box. (See the kitties peeking in?) I received the Ultimate Shave Starter set that contains Dollar Shave Club’s Prep Scrub, Shave Butter, Post Shave Dew, Executive Razor Handle, and 2pck cartridge. This starter set costs $5.00, which is a great price given the quality of the contents and a low-cost way to see if they’re right for you. In addition, I received the Post Shave Cream to test out. That was good of them, because Minnesota winters are rough on the skin!
- Executive Handle and Blades – weighty handle and high quality 6 blades
- 1 oz Tube of Dr. Carver’s Prep Scrub – exfoliate dead skin cells and helps release and prevent ingrown hairs
- 1 oz Tube of Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter – transparent for a more precise shave, helps fights razor bumps
- 1 oz Tube of Dr. Carver’s Post Shave Dew – helps provide hydration and relieves on contact
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the experience $5 will get you!
