This week I got my first shipment from The Dollar Shave Club.
That's the company that has the funny commercials about shaving and their subscription-based solution - delivering razors straight to you, every month.
Second truth - I'm an even bigger fan of convenience that keeps me from having to leave my house.
Third truth - I'm a HUGE fan of saving money
While I know that most people assume that we beauty blogging folks are spending our days rolling around in our piles of money and new product, that can't be further from the truth for this mom - plus, I'm cheap... so I can someday buy my own private island... or a latte. Whatever I can afford to enjoy - but I digress...
When I posted the image on Instagram of my first delivery from the folks at Dollar Shave, I was quite impressed.
Soon after, I was inundated with comments from friends about how they all love it.
Is the first rule of Dollar Shave Club to not TALK about Dollar Shave Club?
I couldn't believe how many of my friends - men and women alike - who were all commenting on their love of the service. Dang. Where have I been?
Needless to say - I'm out of the loop. I was also out of my cheap, throwaway razors so I was super excited this arrived. A few more days and I could be on one of those TV shows being hunted down with night vision.
Yes... I paid $6 and got the heavy, nicely crafted handle, 4 heads with 4 blades each and even a sample of their shave butter. SIX DOLLARS! No shipping costs either? Heck - put that down as another truth.. I love FREE shipping.
There will be a longer blog on this whole thing once I've really put it through the trials of lady shaving but, already, I'm digging it. It's like I stole my husband's razor but didn't.
Even he remarked on how impressive it appeared to him and he's talking of signing up, too.
More to come but so far - so good.

Speaking of cheap, easy and convenient - one of my favorite subscription-based services I enjoy is ipsy.
For $10 per month, a cute bag of beauty items to try shows up at my door. I LOVE ipsy day! I just got a sneak peek into my next glam bag and it has 2 items that I'm drooling over (including an HD powder) as well as some other goodies I've got some anticipation for. I can't wait!
I'm currently playing with new goodies like these - click the images to see more info for yourself..
Be smart, be safe, be well :)
