Did I ever tell you guys about my hubby’s beard? Well, right now it’s shaved down to a scruffle (kinda like when a cat shed’s his winter coat), but come Fall, that beard is its own entity. And, it needs an army of assistants to keep it looking so fresh and so clean. A great shaving subscription for the win here, guys.

I feel like shaving subscriptions for men (and woman) are a must – especially when said guy has a big, manly beard (and bald head) to contend with. We stumbled across Great America Shave Co a couple of months ago (one of you lucky readers won a kit from them) and this month, the hubs got to try them first hand!
WHO IS GREAT AMERICA SHAVE CO?
Great America Shave Co. offers convenient shave subscriptions plans that deliver 3-blade or 5-blade razors to your home, business, office or dorm as frequently as you decide. Thier blades are made in America, with tough-as-nails craftsmanship. Here you’ll find high-quality shave and beard care products crafted with natural ingredients. You’ll shop satisfied knowing (they) believe in giving back with every purchase you make. Subscriptions start at $7 per month.
I love a brand that gives back and these guys do just that – For every razor they sell, they donate shave care products to Active Duty Military Troops overseas (under their Shave-A-Soldier Program in partnership with PackagesFromHome.org). They also donate a percentage to local charities that support our American Heroes (Reservists, Active Duty, Retired and Disabled Veterans).
MY HUBBY’S NEW SHAVE KIT
The hubs received a box filled with goodies for his face (and head) – just in time for Father’s Day!
First up was the razor handle. This handle is sturdy. We’ve tried other shaving subscriptions in the past and this razor handle is one of the heftier versions we’ve received.
It’s also made a bit differently than the others – in fact, we thought it was broken when we opened up the box, but it actually is just part of the ergonomic design. You get the razor free with your first delivery.
Next up were the blades. This box came with four, five blade cartridges. These guys have a Vitamin E lubrication strip, rubber fin for extra comfort and top trimmer for hard to reach areas.
The added bonus in this box was the 4 oz container of Shave Cream (Original Scent). You know I love smelling stuff, so I went straight to smelling it and it smelled….clean. Really, nice, man-clean.
The best part is that they only use the “best” natural (vegan) ingredients to make their products (which, PS are all American Made).
We invest in natural ingredients that are better for your skin, so you can focus on life (and leave skincare to the experts.) In our formulas, you’ll find soothing aloe vera, natural oils and eucalyptus. Every product we offer is vegan-friendly, and made with fresh-from-the-earth ingredients. You’ll look good, and you’ll feel good knowing that what you’re using is all-natural and safe even for the most sensitive skin.
The box arrived mid-shave-week for the hubs, so he won’t get to try everything until this weekend. BUT, I couldn’t wait, so I totally tried the razors and cream myself (for testing purposes, duh) and was very pleasantly surprised with the outcome!
This shave plan subscription my hubby received was the Razor, Cartridges and Shave Cream plan ($17 every 3 months). You choose your frequency either 1, 2 or 3 months and then they deliver the goods to you right when you need em’.
Other Shave Plans include the Razor and Cartridges Plan ($7 every 3 months) and the Razor, Cartridges, Shave Cream and After Shave Plan ($27 every three months).
DON’T FORGET YOUR BEARD!
I like that these guys have a plan focused on a guy’s beard. I mean, there have been points when my man’s beard (and corresponding handlebar mustache) has literally stopped us in the streets (meaning people would actually stop him to tell him how awesome his beard was).
It was at it’s beardy-est when our daughter was born 4 years ago and because he couldn’t get close enough to her face with it, he shaved it in the hospital. This is how that looked. Did I mention this would make a great Father’s Day gift?
What a weirdo.
Like the Shave Plans, there a few options for bearding dudes: the Beard Oil Beard Plan ($12 every 3 months), Beard Oil & Beard Balm ($24 every three months) and the Beard Oil, Beard Balm and Beard Wash Plan ($38 every 3 months).
YOUR NEXT SHAVING SUBSCRIPTION?
If you’re not already using a shaving subscription, definitely recommend Great America Shave Co. They’re products are super great quality and they are very reasonably priced.
And, for every purchase you make they donate to our Active-Duty troops overseas and veterans. Sounds like a win to me!
Stay tuned because these guys are giving away another box to a lucky winner next month! Subscribe here to receive an email alert when the giveaway goes live!
