It’s the bane of man’s life. Shaving – and what’s more it just gets more and more expensive. Step in our new grooming heroes Close Shave Society – a brand new company that will change the way you shave.
Anyone who wears contact lenses and gets their lenses through the post already knows what a life and time saver the service is – well the clever peeps (Zach and Dane) at the Close Shave Society have opened their doors, delivering razor blades to your letterbox – at a fraction of the cost of buying them from your local supermarket. It’s 2013’s Light Bulb Moment, as far as we’re concerned.
Simplicity is the key here, you choose your razor type, 3 or 5 blades (we recommend the 5 blade razor), you choose your subscription: monthly, bi-monthly or annual – and then wait (with nose pressed against the window) for your postie to arrive with your razor delivery. Sound like something expensive? You’ll be surprised. They have subscriptions as cheap as £39 for the year (for the 5 blade razors, on a bi monthly subscription – you’ll get 28 cartridges over the year)
So a quick run down of the product:
- German engineered and manufactured five blade razor:
- 5 Gothic Arch II design, stainless steel blades
- Flexible razor head provides a smooth even shave
- Aloe vera glide strip cools and soothes the skin as you shave
- Free handle with ergonomic grip
- 4 cartridges per pack
- Postage & Packaging Included
There are three subscriptions: £6 per month – which gets you four cartridges (razors), sent directly to your door every month. The Bi-Monthly subscription, costs £6.50 every two months and if you find yourself falling head over heels in love with the Close Shave Society you can part with a whole £66.00 for a complete year’s supply of razors.
I road tested the blade and I’m very happy to report a nick free, close, comfortable shave. Confidence abound – not too shabby for this man!
Bish Bash Bosh. We’re in love.
