Every man and woman knows that a clean shave can turn a whole day around.
However, a good razor does not come cheap. With Dollar Shave Club changing the way we access our razors, it can be hard to not just go with what's been advertised all over. Luckily, we've compiled a list of alternative subscription services that are both affordable, and as high-quality as DSC.
Sensitive skin? No problem. Specifically designed to help people of color shave without having to worry about razor irritation, this luxurious shave club will send along a full pack every three months straight to your door. For $29.95 every three months, each packet will include a razor, shave brush, 2 ounces of Priming Oil, and over 60 blades. It also comes with a restoring balm for after your shave.
