The Cost of Shaving: Does OneBlade Make the Cut?
Let’s have an honest conversation about the cost of shaving.
To begin, let’s establish our baseline.
Every shaving company, and customer, will agree that when you notice any tugging, pulling, nicking, or rust you need to change your blade. Please note, when I write blade, I’m referring to all blades, from cartridges to straight edge.
Even though other shaving companies claim their blades typically last between 8 to 10 shaves, most men see noticeable differences in the feel, closeness, and comfort of their shaves after 3 to 4 shaves. Sound familiar?
So, let’s say you typically shave every other day, meaning you use one cartridge/straight edge per week.
How much would it cost to use some of the most popular razors on today’s market?
If you’re using the Gillette Fusion 5 razor, and purchase your cartridges on Amazon, you’re spending $3.62 each week, $188.24 each year.
If you’re using Harry’s and purchase cartridges through one of their shaving plans, you’re spending $2 each week, $104 every year.
If you’re using Dollar Shave Club and use their Executive cartridges , you’re spending $2.50 each week, $130 every year.
If you’re using Dollar Shave Club and use their 4X cartridge , you’re spending $1.75 each week, $91 every year.
Now, consider this:
If you’re using OneBlade and subscribe to our shaving plan (which automatically ships new blades when you need them), you’re spending $0.73 each week, $37.96 each year
