Chisel Shave Club Review & Coupon Code January 2016
Chisel Shave Club is a brand new subscription box that launched at the end of last year. It is a subscription box dedicated to helping men discover the lost art of wet shaving, which is something I recently started to learn a little about. When I think of wet shaving I think of men from my Grandpa’s era, not necessarily today’s generation. However, I think this art form is making a come back, and for good reason.
If you aren’t familiar with Chisel Shave Club it is a box of awesome wet shaving products delivered to you every month. Discover new blades, soaps, aftershaves, and more. Your face will thank you.

When subscribers sign up for a 6 or 12-month subscription they will receive a free safety razor handle and shaving brush in their first box, this is the box I am reviewing today. Right away I was impressed with the packing. I LOVE to see a box ship inside a box…….or in other words, I like to see the pretty box ship inside the ugly box.
Dr. Squatch Natural Soap Cedar Citrus – I’m a huge fan of men’s soap, not because I use it, but because men should definitely have their own soap. All of my soap is pink and smells candy, not exactly the scent most men or going for…..or at least I hope not.
Brickell Clarifying Gel Face Wash & Brickell Instant Relief Aftershave – Brickell is an amazing men’s brand, FYI. I’ve received their products in a few different men’s subscription boxes and am always happy with them.
Shaving Brush – This item comes in your first box when you sign up for a 6 or 12 month subscription. I read on another blog that the shaving brush is the single biggest factor in achieving an outstanding shave. The main reason for using a shave brush rather than your hand is because the bristles help to create a dense and cushioning lather needed for a comfortable shave. Can girls use shave brushes? Is that a dumb question?
Red Leaf Black Tea Shaving Soap – Sooooo, I made the mistake of researching the benefits of shave soap and discovered that this whole wet shave thing is actually quite complicated….beneficial but complicated. The short story is…… soaps offer more cushion and slickness, which is better for straight razor shavers, and creams offer more protection, which is better for safety razors shavers.
Astra Superior Platinum Blades & Shark Super Stainless Blades – My head hurts after researching the shave soap so I don’t have anything witty left to say about the blades……sorry.
Double Edge Safety Razor Handle – This is the other item that comes with 6 and 12 months subscriptions and I love how bad ass it looks. Seriously, this is so much more “manly” than the dinky little plastic razors you get at the grocery store. If I was a guy this is the razor I would use.
Thoughts: For a new subscription box they definitely have their crap together. The packaging is on point, the website is easy to navigate, and the price point is very reasonable when compared to other boxes in the same category. I also like that they included some established brands – Brickell and Dr. Squatch. I’m a brand snob and often judge a box based on the brands they work with. All-in-all I am happy with my first Chisel Shave Club box and I think guys would really love it also. Men hate to shave, and I’m told that the main issue is red marks and shitty shave cream (not my words since I don’t swear). This whole wet shave thing does away with both of those issues, so I would recommend this box to any guy who hates the shaving process…..so pretty much every guy who’s not growing a Duck Dynasty beard…….this box is for you.
