Harry's Review - March 2015 - Men's Grooming Subscription Box
What is it? Harry's
How Much? $15-$38 per shipment, plus $6 per box shipping to Canada (US$)
What’s in it? Harry's shave supplies, automatically delivered to your door, based on how often you shave.
Harry's is a shaving product company that aims to give men "the best possible shaving experience – and always at a fair price". Harry's keeps costs down by manufacturing their own blades and selling them direct to the consumer.
We design and manufacture our own products using an exacting construction process and only the finest materials. By selling directly to you online, we're able to shave away the excess and offer a great shave at a price accessible to every Tom, Dick and…(sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).My boyfriend received a Harry's gift set for Christmas. We were looking online at how to reorder blades and discovered the subscription service. In addition to the subscription Shave Plans, Harry's sells their products a la carte, or in curated gift sets in their storefront. Blades cost $2 each or less. The more you buy, the more you save.
Harry's isn't a usual subscription service. The shave plans, products, price, and shipping frequency is all based on your (or your man's) shaving needs.
- Shave 5-7 days per week - boxes ship every 2 months
- Shave 2-4 days per week - boxes ship every 3 months
- Shave 1 day per week - boxes ship every 5 months
- Blades Only - 8 blades ($15 per shipment).
- Blades & Gel - 8 blades & 2 Foaming Shave Gels ($30 per shipment)
- Blades, Gel & Aftershave - Same as above + 1 After Shave Moisturizer ($38 per shipment)
Next select your free razor handle. This comes with your first shipment and is designed to last a lifetime (or so they say).
Harry's was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and most importantly for guys who know they shouldn't have to overpay for a great shave.
Harry's Foaming Shave Gel (2 x Large 6.7oz, $24)
Our foaming shave gel lathers up to help your razor glide smoothly over your skin. And unlike many other foams, it's packed with natural ingredients that soothe irritation and hydrate your face. Say goodbye to dry.
BF normally uses the Shave Cream so this gel is new to him. Hopefully he likes it!
Harry's After Shave Moisturizer (Regular 1.7oz, $10)
For those of us with more sensitive, dry, or otherwise temperamental skin, we went the extra mile. Our light aftershave moisturizer is packed with soothing ingredients that refresh and hydrate your skin post-shave and absorb quickly, leaving no shiny or oily residue.
This is another new product for him, but I'm trying to encourage moisturizer (and sunscreen) since he's getting up there in age. (Mwhaha!)
The magic of a great blade is strength at the base and sharpness at the tip. We grind steel into a specialized “Gothic Arch” angle to deliver just that. Our razor cartridge has 5 precision-angled blades to spread pressure evenly across your face for maximum ease and comfort.
He's a fan of these 5-blade cartridges. The more you buy, the more you save. Order 16 at once (4 packs), and it's only $1.56 per cartridge.
The Truman Handle ($10)
The Truman handle was designed for comfort and control. The handle has a weighted core for substance, and the molded exterior provides an ergonomic grip. It may be the best-looking thing in your bathroom. (Other than you.)
BF already has a handle so we didn't get one this shipment. The handle comes with a protective travel cover. Your first shipment will come with a free handle, with colour of your preference.
Harry's shipment included all the supplies to meet his shaving needs for the next few months. This bundle cost $38 US plus $6 shipping ($44 US total) and contains $49 worth of products. I think for future shipments we are going to downgrade to the middle plan, or $30 per shipment. That's $36 every 3 months for 8 blades and two shave gels, or $12 per month, with shipping. G really likes Harry's products. I think he feels kind of posh using such fancy stuff! The susbcription plan is easy and convenient, so it's perfect for a busy 9-5 guy like him.
