After a short delay, the first razors sent out by the Dollar Shave Club — a startup that sells shaving razors for $1 — finally arrived Friday.It works just as well as any other razor, but it’s much better because you don’t have to pay north of $30 per month on razor blades.

The Dollar Shave Club offers three options that increase in price as the quality of the razorblades improve.

You get between three (on the premium end) and six (on the cheaper end) blades per month sent directly to your house. The cheapest option costs $1 per month, plus shipping and handling.

We ordered both the low-end $1 version and the middle-option $6 version. The most expensive set costs $9 per month.

Here’s the verdict:

  • It works exactly how you would expect it to work. The razors are sharp and more than safe enough for your face (or anywhere else).
  • Go for the $6 model, because you’ll get free shipping. You have to pay $2 for shipping and handling for the $1 version, and the one we ordered had a broken razor handle.
  • The Dollar Shave Club is still one of the most exciting propositions this year. It was started by improv actor Michael Dubin and took off like a rocket as soon as it launched. There’s no reason to not be excited about this.

It comes in a small package like this, mailed directly to your home.

Three things come in the package altogether.

Welcome to the Dollar Shave club!

Here's the handle...

... and the cartridges.

You'll receive razorblades once a month.

They look pretty much just like normal razor blades...

It's well designed and works just like you'd expect it.

The packaging for the whole product is quirky and fun to go through.

It's pretty obvious these guys know how to make people excited.
