Dollar Shave Club: The 4x Razor Review

Dollar Shave Club: The 4x Razor Review

Last month, I ended my long-term relationship with my Mach 3 razors for the Dollar Shave Club’s Executive Razor. I loved it, the price was right and it magically appeared at my door every month. But I was curious, would the cheaper models be just as good? Could I save even more money? Well… the short answer is no.

Dollar Shave Club review The 4x Lovers Blade
The 4x Razor handle is just as ergonomic and well-built as The Executive model. It has anti-slip grip and is made from high quality plastic and metal. Still a +1 from the Mach 3 plastic connecting parts.

So in comparison to the Mach 3, the handle is just as good if not better. Mach 3 has a lot more plastic in the high tension areas, which means if you’re clumsy and drop it, it may break.

The locking mechanism is still extremely well thought out and the head pivots, again just like The Executive razor I reviewed.

Now I’ll get into the razors. You get 4 a month for $6.50 CAD plus tax. That is a freakin’ steal when compared to Mach 3s. But sometimes, you get what you pay for…

Dollar Shave Club review The 4x Lovers Blade 5
The razor itself is quite underwhelming. It has 4 blades, which sounds good in theory. The aloe moisturizing strip doesn’t really do anything and I found my skin quite irritated after.
I’ll be honest, this razor kinda sucks. I got razor burn for the first time in probably 10 years!

So in summary, the Dollar Shave program is AMAZING, but this razor is not. I have already switched back to The Executive razor at $9.50 CAD/month.

  • Hmm, you make me want to try The Executive. I subscribed to Dollar Shave Club for a while and got these blades … I thought they were *okay* but not amazing or anything.

  • Aw that’s too bad that the cheaper option wasn’t a winner! 🙁

    Would you happen to know if the blades and heads are interchangeable? Could I use the 4x blades on my executive handle?
