Is your partner begging you to shave because your scruff is irritating when they try to give you a smooch? Are you postponing that shave because you forgot to get a new razor or more shaving cream at the store? A shaving club can prevent this from happening by delivering your shaving gear to your door.

Take your shaving up a notch with one of these shaving club companies. Although they’re designed with the face in mind, some of them may work well for legs too.

Article Overview

Harry’s Review


Visit Website

Harry’s has personalized shaving plans to fit your specific shaving habits. Choose how many blades, shaving creams, foaming gels and post-shave balms you want and have them shipped to your door every 1 to 6 months. This is perfect since everyone’s shaving needs vary.

Although this shaving club is designed towards men, it has many female subscribers as well. We like that this shaving club has a trial set for you to test out the razor and shaving cream before you have to pay a subscription fee.

Harry’s raves about its razors being made in its own factory in Germany. The steel is from Sweden, and the handles were designed in New York and assembled in Hong Kong. The shave cream, shave gel and post shave balm are manufactured on the East Coast of the U.S.

Dollar Shave Club Review


Visit Website

The Dollar Shave Club (DSC) starts you out with one of its Starter Sets which features a razor, replacement blades and some shave butter. You can then select how often you want to receive a restock box, which includes replacement blades and more shave butter. You can choose this based on how frequently you shave.

You can also purchase additional bathroom products like toothpaste, toothbrushes, beard oil, travel size items and more for a Handsome Discount on your total order. Overall, we think this is a great shaving club, but it has a few more negative reviews than our #1 pick, and it is missing an element of sleek elegance, which is why it’s our #2 pick.

Gillette Review


Visit Website

Gillette on Demand isn’t set up like Harry’s and Dollar Shave Club. You select the Gillette blade, then choose if you want to order blades one-time or set up a subscription to have your blades delivered. (Subscribing to blades is a better deal since you can get every fourth order free.)

If you opt for Gillette’s subscription, you don’t have the choice of having shaving cream or other shave related products shipped to your doorstep, which is odd since Gillette has these products available.

Other Shaving Companies


Dorco Review

Dorco logo

View on Amazon

We also wanted to mention Dorco as an option for your shaving needs. It offers razors for men and women but there is no subscription option, so it’s not a true shaving club. This is why we have chosen not to include it in our top 3.

Dorco offers many different razor systems including replacement razor cartridges and disposable razors. It also sells shaving creams and aftershave to help you get a close shave.

Attention All Bearded People

If you have a beard (or want to grow one), you may not need a shaving club since you are using a straight razor too often. Instead, you may want to learn more about beard care kits and beard growth oil, both of which we have written about.
