Here’s why Hip2Save readers love these razors:

These are the most amazing razors!!! I shaved my legs almost a week ago, still no stubble!!!!! I have never had such a close shave, ever….I use men’s razors to begin with, this is by far the best I’ve used!


I ordered DSC last time Hip2Save posted the deal, and I am super pleased! I was having problems with razor bumps and little nicks but since I’ve been using DSC razors, I haven’t had those problems! You’ll get a close shave minus the irritation! I’m a fan!


I absolutely love the blades from here. I get a month’s worth usually from each blade with no nicks or cuts. I also love the shave butter. Never any shaving rash and always baby-soft smooth skin which is a must for sensitive places!

    Best razors ever!! My family also likes their aluminum free deodorant and bathroom peppermint wipes. Lol

    • Niko

      I liked them and used them for years but they took a hit this year, rightly so.

  2. Shelly Watson

    I just received my kit! Do you use prep scrub THEN shave butter to shave?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! It looks like you will use the prep scrub first, which – “Prepares hair and skin for a closer shave”. Then you can use the shave butter.
      Here are the tips on how to use the shave butter –

      “1. Squeeze a half dollar‑sized amount of butter into your palm.
      2. Gently pat the butter onto your skin and spread. You want a nice layer across the entire shaveable area.
      3. Let your skin marinate in the butter for about 15 seconds.
      4. Shave, preferably with a fresh blade. The butter is clear, so you can see where you’re going.
      5. Enjoy your buttery smooth skin.”

      Hope this helps!

    Do you have to do the refill for 20?

    • jennap

      Hi there, Mama2Nine! According to their website, you do not have to get the refill for $20 if you cancel before it ships. It looks like they send out an email reminder before it ships, so you’ll have time to cancel or modify your order. I hope this helps!

      • Mama2Nine

        Thanks so much. I looked and couldn’t find the info you found. Thank you!!!
        I’m going to send this to my 19 year old in college. He doesn’t shave much right now bc with a mask it’s okay to have a beard for a bit he says.

        • Mama2Nine

          I was able to order two for my older boys. 🙌
          Now.. I’m thinking stocking stuffer. 🎄

          • Mama2Nine

            And.. my husband had hurt feelings so now 3 boxes. 🙄

            • Tammy

              How do you order more than one?

          • jennap

            Those are wonderful ideas! These are the perfect kit for a college student! And they certainly will make great stocking stuffers!

    Thank you! Got one for a Christmas gift!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Perfect!

  5. Living4fridays

    My 15 yo started shaving this month. Great timing! Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome!

  6. PATRICK COSMATO

    HOW DO I PLACE AONE TIME ORDER?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Patrick! Here are the details I found on that – “All of our products are available by subscription except for razor handles, the DSC Traveler, and Trial Kits, which can only be purchased on an as needed basis.”

      Hope this helps!

  7. Ani

    Just a heads up… I ordered two kits as gifts and only received one razor. I chatted with them and they told me that that’s how it is, you only get one razor even if you order more than one, but that they would send me another one

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the helpful warning, Ani!

  8. Amanda

    Awesome!! Snagged one for my hubby!!

  9. Denise

    My husband is picky about his razors because of his sensitive skin he has had no issues using these and likes them very much would recommend

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s great to hear! Everyone has such different skin, too! I’m glad his sensitive skin works well with these razors!

  10. Susan Newman

    When I try to order…it gives me a total of 20.00! Is the 5.00 promotion over?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m still seeing $5 total, Susan Newman. You may want to try another browser.

  11. Megan

    Does anyone know if it will arrive before Christmas?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I looked and can’t find the answer for you, Megan. It doesn’t say how soon the first one ships.

  12. Cat

    I’m a subscriber of the razors, but I want to order one of these as a gift for someone at another address. Does anyone know if I will get the $5 price?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, I do see that they have gift sets, but I’m not finding a way to gift this offer. Maybe try contacting them to see if they can look into that for you. Hoping this helps!

    • MamaBear

      If you need it by Christmas, I wouldn’t recommend it. I purchased and subscribed at the start of the month and it’s now the 17th. It literally shipped this morning. I kept checking their site since I read somewhere on their site that items are shipped in 3-5 days. I was starting to worry that it didn’t have tracking info, but I’m glad to see it does. I’m a little bummed it took so long, but nothing beats having something to track an item with. Also, it says on their site that they are having delays in shipping and if you needed something by the holidays to order by Dec. 14th. Not sure if that help, but it is a great price! I’m anxiously waiting for mine….I refuse to buy any more razors and I tossed out my old one. LOL

      • Denise

        I ordered over a month ago and still haven’t received razors. Shipping is slow but razors are good

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Oh darn! Maybe try contacting customer service to see if they can check on the status of your order. Hoping it arrives soon!

    Saw this in Walmart and several other stores.I thought they went out of business?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nope! You can still purchase their items!
