This week, we reviewed the Bevel shave system and have to say that it’s pretty unique. We like to think that we’ve tried our fair share of razors, creams, etc. and we think that Bevel is a great option for the right person.
What is Bevel?:
Bevel is a premium shave company that targets those of us who are looking for an upgraded shaving experience, and who aren’t afraid to shell out a few extra pennies to get it. If you’re more interested in the bare bones, check out our reviews for dollar shave club and harry’s (insert links). Bevel separates themselves from the crowd by selling a group of premium products that, so they claim, allows for a pretty awesome shave.
Bevel offers a subscription box option that comes with all of their products and has monthly, quarterly, and annual payment options. For this option, they send refill kits 4 times a year. You can also buy each of their products individually, but it adds up to a lot more if you want the whole package. Finally, their top-of-line trimmer is an add on option for $235 (it’s pretty darn nice though).
We decided to check out everything and opted for the subscription box.
What’s in the Box???!!
In addition to a razor (a retro single-blade razor refitted with new technology), in the box you get shave cream, restoring balm, priming oil and even a shave brush (getting very fancy now). When you take the top off the box, the razor is the first thing you see and the unboxing frankly reminded me of the unboxing of an iphone, which is high praise. The creams, brush, and razor blades sit underneath that.
Ok, Sounds Great. Does it work?:
Yes. I shave almost every day, and my experience was significantly improved. The creams and balm felt like premium products, and the brush was a nice touch (although somewhat over the top in my opinion). Bevel released a “How to use” video, which you can check out here. The company claims that the system helps reduce razor bumps; we’ll have to get back to you on that, but the shave felt as smooth and as comfortable as any I’ve experienced before. If you’re looking to get rid of razor bumps, you can check out our article(link here) as well.
In our opinion, if you’re going to opt for Bevel, you should get the full subscription box option. The individual products are great, but the experience is what really ties it together.
What’s the damage?:
Quarterly: $19.98/MO (Save $120/YR)
Annually $16.67/MO (Save $160/YR)
Yep, the prices are high, but you often have to pay top-of-market price for the best products. You can cancel your subscription anytime if you aren’t satisfied.
Wrap It Up Already:
If a shaving experience is something that you’re looking for, then this is a great option. If you just want a razor and shaving cream, Harry’s or Dollar Shave club might be a better choice for you. Personally I’m going to keep it through the holiday season and see if my classically critical aunt says something at thanksgiving.
