No.1 Shave Club is a UK subscription that offers high quality shaving razors made with stainless steel and titanium coating. Subscribers can choose from either three and five blade razors and opt for monthly or every other month delivery.
The packaging is compact and easily fits through any letterbox. First orders also come with a free non-slip ergonomically designed handle with “quick release” button.
I received the three blade razors, which have a lubricating strip with aloe vera. Each box includes 4 razors and, as this was my first box, I also received the free handle.
The non-slip handle has an appealing and comfortable design. It is quick and easy to attach and detach the blades.
My first impressions were that the blades look pretty basic. My husband shared this observation – he thought they looked similar to his disposable blades. However, once he tried the blades out he found they offered a closer, smoother shave than disposables. He really liked the handle and found the blades to be pretty good – not amazing, but good.
I also tested out the razor on my legs. I thought the blades were great, the aloe vera strip helped it glide easily and smoothly, giving my legs a really close shave. This product is very clearly marketed towards men, but there’s no reason why a woman shouldn’t partake!
I would recommend this subscription box to men and women alike. At either £4 + p&p or £8 for a each month’s supply of nice quality blades, this box is a solid value.
What do you think of this month’s box?
