As you know, all of us here at Bleacher Nation (me, Brett, Luis, Eli, and Bryan) love what we do every day, and would do it for free, if we could. But that’s obviously not possible – Brett has a very expensive ice cream habit – so we need to do things to keep the lights on. And to that end, I’m very excited to announce a partnership with Dollar Shave Club for this post! And we’re gonna have some fun with it.
Some of you may be out there walking around with a vintage, mountain-man style Jake Arrieta beard (circa 2017), and that’s totally fine …
… but many more of us are dealing with the sort of facial that needs to be addressed every couple of days, less we look like patchy teenagers at the end of #NoShaveNovember …
And while there are some alternatives out there like photoshop:
And even wearable options:
The best thing to do is just freakin’ shave.
I’ve actually been subscribing to Dollar Shave Club for the past three years now, and I really love it – anything that I can order online/through the app and get delivered straight to my door (for cheaper than the store) is a no-brainer for me.
Typically, I’ve ordered the four-blade razor (there’s a 2-blade, 4-blade, and 6-blade at different price points), but Dollar Shave Club recently sent me their Shave Starter Set which includes the “executive handle” (#fancy), two six-blade razors, and some of their Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter … and I gotta say, the difference was hilariously and wonderfully noticeable.
(The shave butter is actually transparent, which makes shaving a lot easier … frankly, all shaving cream should be transparent, as far as I’m now concerned).
If you visit DollarShaveClub.com/BleacherNation you can get that same starter set for just $5. After that, if you want, the regular restock box with full-sized products and more razors ships monthly at the regular price (and you can adjust what you get in that box/how much you pay straight through the app pretty easily).
Oh, and by the way: Dollar Shave Club does more than just razors. They’ve got you covered on all your grooming needs – shower, oral care, deodorants, dude wipes for after you have too many hot dogs from Hot Doug’s in right field (if you know, you know) … I may have ordered those (one hundred times) before.
By the way … while I suggest just getting this stuff for yourself, I’m sure some of you still haven’t gotten gifts for your dads/brothers/friends/significant others, and this is such a quick and obvious, but also awesome answer. We’ve all gotta shave, and using that same old crummy, disposable blade sitting next to your sink (because you’re too lazy to run to the store) is gross, man. Be an adult. Get new razors delivered every week. They’re awesome. They’re cheap. They make the whole experience better.
So if you’re not leaving your house like Jake everyday, sign up for the starter set (or something more for yourself/gifts!) at DollarShaveClub.com/BleacherNation.
Hey, maybe he already did …
