Our Editors Review: Dollar Shave Club vs Manscaped - The Best Razor For Every Man’s Family Jewels

Of course, guys everywhere have been regularly shaving their beards, staches, and even sideburns. Lately, more and more dudes have also started to trim down below – there’s an entire industry of razors, trimmers, and accessories devoted to helping guys safely groom their family jewels.

But with so many options on the market, how do you know which is right for you?

Luckily, our editors recently took to the internet looking for effective products that will leave you with the best trim or shave and, most importantly, virtually no-nicks possible.

Across their social media feeds, we kept seeing two brands pop up time and time again: MANSCAPED® and Dollar Shave Club.

We put them head-to-head to see which would be the best trimmer for you:


With MANSCAPED®, grooming below the waist is easier than you think. Their innovative tech helps you avoid nicks and cuts, especially in those sensitive areas.

MANSCAPED® 's The Lawn Mower® 4.0 is the ultimate groin and body trimmer. Its SkinSafe™ Technology* features ceramic blades that are 3mm from the edge, ensuring maximum confidence while buzzing about the body's most sensitive area. Replaceable ceramic blades have rounded edges, providing a smoother cut while reducing the risks of nicks and snags.

Bonus: It’s wireless and waterproof**.

MANSCAPED® is the brand for all your male grooming needs. Sure, The Lawn Mower® 4.0 is their bread and butter, but they offer much more.

Our editors highly recommend The Performance Package 4.0 for an awesome all-in-one grooming kit:

  • The Lawn Mower® 4.0 - Trimmer for the family jewels
  • Weed Whacker® 2.0 - Ear & nose hair trimmer
  • Crop Preserver® - Anti-chafing ball deodorant
  • Crop Reviver® - Ball spray toner
  • Magic Mat® - Disposable shaving mats
  • The Shed - Travel bag ($39.99 value) - FREE
  • MANSCAPED® Boxers - Anti-chafing and comfortable ($19.99 value) - FREE

Dollar Shave Club

The company is known for their razors - their most popular, the Dollar Shave Club 4-Blade Starter Set, features four-spaced blades, a lube strip, and a trimmer edge, intended to get the job done pretty quickly. Though, in our hands, there was less grip than we expected, and it felt like any other $4 razor.

We appreciate that Dollar Shave Club’s pricing strategy is transparent. They offer a few different razor options, ranging in price from $3 to $10 per month, depending on the number of blades, the frequency of delivery, and the subscription – yes, to get the most out of the service, you’ll want to subscribe.

Many users online have complained about the lack of personalization when it comes to shipping replacements: The standard plan sends you four blades/per month, and the Not So Hairy Plan sends them every other month. Other than these two options, you can only choose to pause your membership for up to three months or cancel altogether.

Our Verdict

In the end, we’d be lying if we said one brand’s razors and trimmers worked while the other didn’t. But once you look beyond the surface, it’s clear that MANSCAPED® is the better choice.

With Dollar Shave Club, you get exactly what you pay for – low-quality razors at an affordable price. MANSCAPED®, on the other hand, streamlines your grooming routine with innovative, high-quality products, so you can look and feel your best anytime, anywhere.

MANSCAPED®’s The Lawn Mower® 4.0 and The Performance Package 4.0 provides a smoother and easier shave than anything we’ve seen from other brands. And in the end, that’s all guys truly want.

Let MANSCAPED® introduce you to the joy of shaving and help keep you looking like the champion of champions, no matter where life takes you.
