Why I Quit Using Pink Razors
& Joined a Men’s Shave Club

By Camille Clark for DSC/ October 6th, 2017

Back when I was in high school, I got a free pink razor in the mail and thought it was one of the best days of my life. Ok, I might be exaggerating, but it is nice getting free stuff! Ever since then, I’ve been buying their blade refills at the store for $20 a pack. On top of that, I had to get a store employee to open that locked cabinet to grab a refill. Such a hassle!

On top of that, I had to get a store employee to open that locked cabinet to grab a refill. Such a hassle! It’s tough keeping my legs smooth all year round when blades are expensive and inconvenient to buy. I tried using the same blade for a while, but that got gross. I don’t advise it. Then one of my friends told me about how she joined Dollar Shave Club. Wait, isn’t that a club only for guys? Apparently women are in the Club, too. I gave it a try and want to tell you about my experience.

Dollar Shave Club Executive Razor Welcome Box

What I Ordered

I went to their website and saw that they were offering a $5 Starter Set which offered their Executive razor PLUS a 3oz tube of Shave Butter. My friend said she had tried their six-blade Executive and that it “glided” across her skin. Plus, you’ll never run out of blades. After your first box, you get replacement blades for just $9 a month. There’s no catch. You can cancel at any time, no questions asked.

I read the reviews for their Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter and it got 4.7 out of 5. People seemed to like it a lot, and I’d never shaved with “butter,” so I was excited to put it to the test. The box came in the mail a few days later, and I forgot that it came in the Starter Set. It felt like I had just received a gift in the mail, except that I paid for it. Well hey, treat yourself!

What's in The Box

So here’s what came in my box:

  • The Executive Razor handle
  • Four cartridge refills
  • 3oz tube of Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter
  • Member Handbook (leaflet with how the club works and a note from the CEO, nice touch!)


My First Time Shaving with Butter

I placed my new goodies in my shower, and my legs were ready for a shave. I slathered it on and it actually feels like butter. Surprisingly, the Shave Butter went on clear - but it helps you see where you need to shave - I get it now.

I start using the Executive, and it literally did glide. Very smooth shave, and was just as easy on my underarms and lady areas. I mean... you gotta be careful around there.

It left my legs feeling soft and moisturized. Usually I put on moisturizer after I shave, but I didn’t need it with the Butter. Plus it’s formulated without parabens and they don’t test on animals - I like that.

Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter

  • Glides on your skin - great for sensitive areas
  • Goes on clear so you can see where you’re shaving
  • Leaves skin very soft
  • No parabens
  • Free of animal-cruelty

Overall, I like it a lot. Definitely would use the butter again.


For the amount I was paying, I wasn’t sure if I was going to get the same quality or experience. But the razor is really sharp and just as good as my other ones. The one thing I wish they had was a handle holder for the shower, but for the amount of money I’m saving and convenience, I’ll take Dollar Shave Club any day.

I get a whole set of refills at a fair price (just $9 a month now since my $5 trial month ended) and it’s shipped straight to my door. One less errand to think about. Ladies, if you have been overpaying for those pink razors, give Dollar Shave Club a try and their combination of the Executive razor and Shave Butter is so popular, they made it a special first month Starter Set for just $5. Trust me.

Try the Starter Set for $5

This very popular Starter Set includes our best razor and Shave Butter for just $5. Why is it so popular? The products are amazing and the whole thing costs less than just the razor by itself.
