Dollar Shave Club Launch Grooming Starter Sets

Anyone that's into podcasts would have heard the name Dollar Shave Club. They're front and centre at the beginning of nearly all the shows I listen to; Bill Burr, Adam Carolla etc. Maybe one day they'd like to jump onboard the MenswearStyle podcast (hint hint?). What you may not know is that there is more to Dollar Shave Club than just shaving products. They have now expanded their range into oral care, skin, hair and shower products. This week I was given the opportunity to road test their Wanderer Shower Gel and Body Cleanser with 'awakening mint' and the Wanderer Hydrating Daily Face Cleanser. You can also buy body bars (is that what we're calling soap these days?), hair and scalp shampoos and another shower gel infused with amber and lavender.

The packaging design features solid purple with translucent lids and white lettering. I also like how the shape of the products are different; another brand I won't mention failed to realise that men are simple creatures and often go buy touch and instinct when shopping. We need our bottles to look different so we can safely discern which is which. The shower gel lathers up well, smells vibrant and has a thick texture to it, so spreads evenly over your body. I got more cedarwood than mint, but the missus who is also hogging the gel right now said she got more mint than cedarwood.

As the Americans would say, go figure. She liked the fact that I'm now showering multiple times a day. Generally, I find constant showering unnecessary. But that could explain why I was single for the best part of my adult life. The Daily Face Cleanser also enlivened my morning grooming routine. Dollar Shave Club is a fantastic gateway into grooming. Their starter kits include Shave, Shower or Oral Care Starter Sets for just $5 each. The convenience and the discipline of having this subscription will pay dividends. Trust me, if you can't do it for yourself, do it for your partner and those around you. Click Here to get DSC’s shower, oral care and shave starter sets for just $5 each.
