This month I finally bit the bullet and signed up for the Wet Shave Club.
I've wanted to try shaving with an old school safety razor for years. They're better for your skin, they cost less than buying cartridges in the long run, they need a little skill to use properly, and basically I think they're just kinda badass!! You can literally feel you testosterone levels rising while you use a safety razor...true story.
Wet Shave Club is a monthly subscription box service that sends you natural shaving supplies each month plus new blades. The first box also included a safety razor and badger hair shave brush.
I used it for the first time yesterday, and I was seriously impressed. I was a little bit worried about doing some damage to my face since I've never used one of these razors before, so I warned my wife before hand that she may hear some screaming coming from the bathroom and she shouldn't worry. But I might need her to be ready to call an ambulance in case of severe blood loss...
As I said there is a bit of skill needed to shave properly with one of these things, as well as some extra prep time compared with using a disposable to cartridge razor:
I managed to get through my first shave with no cuts, nicks or razor burn. It's safe to say that I am now a convert, no more disposables for me unless I'm in a huge rush to get to work or something. But since I only really need to shave every 3-4 days, I don't foresee that as being much of a problem. Being baby-faced has it's advantages sometimes.
If you've never tried Wet Shaving before I highly recommend it. A razor isn't expensive these days, and you can order everything you need online. The Wet Shave Club subscription box is a super easy and convenient way to get into it, and don't worry, you can cancel your subscription any time if it gets too costly.
