Good Morning loves! Welcome back to my blog. I have missed this space so much, I feel lately all I have been posting on here are just updates about my latest YouTube video. I miss chatting, and rambling, and talking about the latest products I’ve tried or the most recent look that I’ve created. Today I’m going to trying to get back into the swing of things, starting with a Dorco razor review.
When I first came across the concept of a razor subscription box via Dorco, I kind of kicked myself for not thinking up the idea myself. Who doesn’t need razors and new blades on a regular basis? Well I guess some lucky genetically blessed people don’t, but unfortunately I am not one of those – I fall more on the yeti side. I find replacing blades a little tedious, a) they’re bloody expensive and b) it becomes one of those things that you tell yourself you need to do but then just keep putting it off. I’ll be honest, and as gross as it might be, I am guilty of using a blunt razor for far too long. So when a Dorco box arrived on my doorstep, I felt like I finally found a solution that would make me feel more like an adult rather than a teenager stuck in an adult’s body. A major case of 13 going on 26 over here! It was only yesterday that I bought some back up tooth brushes, a sure sign of adulthood.
Let me tell you a little about Dorco, I don’t want to waffle on too much, but I do want to share the general gist of this brand and product itself. They are a brand that were established is 1955. What they offer is a variety of subscription boxes, which contain a razor handle and a number of blades. You can choose whether to subscribe to the box on a monthly basis or just try a box as a one off. The pack that I had the opportunity to try was one of the value packs. Retailing at just £6.75 for a razor handle and 2 blades, that to me was a good deal.
There isn’t a whole lot I can say about razors, because they aren’t makeup or skin care where there are lots more to say. I will say however that the razor provided a very good shave for me, and it was just as good as any brand I pick up at Boots or Superdrug. I was worried that the razor may be a little flimsy or poorly made but I am happy to report back that is definitely not the case and it is nice and solid. Overall, would I be purchasing the subscription box myself? The answer is yes, the price and convenience is too good to pass up.
The subscription you can opt into is for the following:
For £5.45 a month you can get 4 blades a month delivered directly to your front door and that includes free shipping too. The first month is currently £1 and will also include the razor handle. You can pick it up [here].
For me, the price is really good. 4 blades a month is a bit of overkill for me as I shave approximately once a week, so what I personally would do is stock up a few months’ worth of the boxes and then cancel my subscription once I had quite a few backups. When my stock begins to dwindle again, I would just re-subscribe and keep repeating the process.
That is it for my thoughts on Dorca. I hope you have liked my Dorco razor review, and don’t forget there a lot more options of razor blade combos on the Dorco website (here) so be sure to check that out. I feel quite good about the fact that I finally made an appearance here on the blog, so hopefully you will be hearing more from me. Speak soon, Tanzina x
