    Just quit Dollar Shave Club

    I wanted to like it so much. But after one week I missed my Fusion so much I couldn't stand it.

    Unfortunately, Gillette really is the best a man can get.

    Re: Just quit Dollar Shave Club

    I wondered about this business...would you relate the razors to a cheap disposable razor?

    I'm all about cutting costs, but I love my fusion proglide too much.

    Re: Just quit Dollar Shave Club

    I converted to my conair istubble and haven't looked back. I go for the .4 MM stubble look now instead and trim it every other day or so. I only shaved once last year, and my wife thought I looked dumb.

    Re: Just quit Dollar Shave Club

    I got a coupon for a free Schick Hydro 5...used it...now I am hooked! I was a Gillette Mach 3 Turbo guy...not anymore...

    I wish I could use cheap disposables but they tear my skin apart.! Shaving is expensive. That is my justification for doing it every 3rd day or so...

    I would say they were better than disposable but not by a wide margin.

    True. The $1 plan there is a shipping charge. The mid and high plans there is no shipping but they are $6 and $9 a month. You can opt for every other month if you don't shave everyday.

    I might try the subscribe and save option with Amazon.


    I had two main complaints. First, I missed the trim blade on the back of my Fusion for getting into tight places. Secondly, I just didn't get that smooth feeling. I guess from a distance the shave looks ok, but it has that "patchy" feeling.

    I switched to electric after college and have been happy. Way easier, and almost as close of a shave.

    It works for some people but it must depend on what kind of beard you have. Mine is like barbed wire. I have tried electric before but it took me longer than manual and I didn't get as good of a shave.

    Yeah it works better if I shave everyday, which I do because I'm OCD like that.
