If you want the convenience of shaving products delivered to your door, don’t settle for expensive grocery store razors that leave you with razor burn and an empty wallet. Online shave clubs have a lot to offer, including variety, quality and savings. There are tons of online shaving clubs to choose from, many of which offer high-quality razors, specialization, and other perks.
Most of these services aren’t limited to razors either – you can pick up other great toiletries like shaving gel, shaving oil, body gel, aloe vera, shea butter and aftershave. Some companies even offer products for sensitive skin. By including supplements like shaving cream and gel, Dollar Shave Club, BillyHarry’s and other shaving subscriptions aim to offer you more value than if you had to create Subscribe and save on Amazon for your favorite razor.
And don’t assume that the shave club is limited to guys. Many of these services offer products aimed at all genders.

One of the original razor subscription services known for its 2012 viral video, Dollar Shave Club razors offer three razor options for your everyday shave: two-blade, four-blade, and six-blade. All are under $9 per month for replacement blades and the one-time cost of the handle.
The Dollar Shave brand started as just a subscription razor brand and has now expanded into several lines of men’s care products, including skin care, hair care, fragrance, deodorant, shaving and oral care.
For your first order, Dollar Shave Club recommends you pick up a starter pack that includes two refills, a handle and shaving oil for $5. In two weeks, you’ll automatically receive a restocking shipment of two razors with cartridges for $20 (or more if you add additional products). You can customize both your Dollar Shave starter kit and restocking shipments to also include body gel, face gel, shampoo, aftershave, toothpaste, and toothbrush.
Although the Dollar Shave brand is aimed at men, I have purchased and used Dollar Shave Club razors in the past and they have done well with ingrown hairs on my legs and underarms.
Harry’s focuses on simplicity, style and superior craftsmanship for its shaving and grooming products. There are only two handles to choose from for their men’s razors and one type of razor cartridge. Its Winston handle is metal with non-slip rubber grips for $20. For $9, you can get the Truman, which has a rubber coating all over and comes in orange, navy and green.
Like Dollar Shave Club, Harry’s has a $5 shaving care starter kit that comes with one razor cartridge and shave gel. With a subscription to Harry’s shave club, you get eight new cartridges for $16 (plus shaving gel for an additional $6), every two, three or five months, depending on how often you shave.
In addition to blades, Harry’s also sells facial gel, aftershave, soap and other body care products.
PS I have also used Harry’s razors with good shaving results. If you really want a women’s razor for a close shave, Harry’s owns a brand called Flamingo that sells them, but doesn’t offer subscription boxes. The Flamingo razor has a weighted ergonomic handle and rubber handle for easy shaving.
Billie’s ambition as a shave club is to provide quality women’s razors and body care products that don’t cost more than men’s. Women’s personal care and shaving products are often subject to the “pink tax,” meaning they cost more simply because they are marketed to women.
The brand sells one style of razor available in seven Instagram-worthy colors. It has five blades and a strip of charcoal soap around the blades to help the razor glide easily for a comfortable shave.
Billie’s $10 starter kit includes a handle, two cartridges and a magnetic holder to store the razor in the shower. The company then sends you four replacement cartridges per month (or whatever frequency you choose to get the blade refilled), which also costs $10. Billie also sells body lotion, body gel and shaving cream.
What I especially love about this company is that it celebrates and normalizes body hair for women, whether you choose to shave or not, with its Project Body Hair campaign. Anyone can submit a photo of their body hair and you can see photos from others who have contributed. In a society that often demonizes any kind of physical flaw in women, this approach is downright refreshing.
Coarse facial hair can be difficult to shave, but kinky or curly hair is even more difficult. The Bevel Shaving Kit was designed with men of color in mind to meet their specific skin and shaving needs.
The shaving kit mimics what you’d see in a barbershop, with a shaving brush, skin oil, shaving cream and aftershave balm. All of these skin products contain moisturizing oils to prevent breakouts, razor burn, and ingrown hairs on your face and neck.
When it comes to the hair removal itself, instead of a multi-blade cartridge, you use a single-blade safety razor. The complete set costs $85 with a subscription (or $90 without), and Bevel will send you refills of razor blades, oil, shaving cream, and conditioner.
For men who love a close shave, or who just consider themselves a bit of a hipster, there’s the Supply razor. This sleek single-edge razor is made from aerospace-grade stainless steel and uses injector-style blades that are easy to replace. Its unique design helps it stand out from the typical safety razor. Oh, and this premium razor comes with a 100-year warranty.
Why yes, of course there is a starter kit. It includes the razor handle with three months of blades, a shaving brush, shaving cream and aftershave for $99. The razor alone is $59, and the new blades are $6 for eight blades — which the company says will last you months.
Like the Bevel, the Supply single edge razor is designed to minimize skin irritation, razor bumps, ingrown hairs and razor burn. Its unique, high-quality design helps it stand out from the typical safety razor.
Yes, these prices are high, but Supply offers you a 100-day trial. If you don’t like it after trying it, you can get a refund.
The delivery also sells a few extras. For $39 you can get a beautiful, if redundant, leather case.
Ah yes, Gillette. I bet you’ve used one of his razors in your life. In response to all those razor subscriptions that have popped up in recent years, Gillette also offers its own shave club to help you save money.
You can choose between two starter kits, the ProGlide Shield and the SkinGuard kit. Both are normally priced at $14, but are free with a subscription and come with a handle, blade, and travel case. Refills cost $26 and you can get them every one, three or six months.
These prices are actually competitive with Amazon, at least for some of the products, and not all Gillette refills on Amazon offer Subscribe & Save. If you really want to “set and forget” with your razors, Gillette On Demand isn’t a bad deal.
Oh, and for the ladies, you can get Gillette’s Venus razor on demand. For $7 you get a free handle, blade cartridge, plus shower gel and shower hook. Refills, which also include four cartridges, cost $18. You can sign up to receive these recharges every month, every three months, or every six months.
