Razor subscriptions are extremely popular and so many people I know are switching from traditional in-store razors to razor subscriptions – not just because of the convenience, but because of the entire experience and quality of products. After a year of using the Athena Club razor, I can boldly say it is the best razor I have ever used and I am just as in love with it today as I was the day I used my first Athena Club razor. If you are reading this, you are likely on the fence about ordering your first Athena Club Razor or trying to decide if it’s right for you – so let me break down the entire ordering process and walk you through my full Athena Club review.
THE INITIAL ORDER
The Athena Club website is extremely easy to navigate. For most people, I know the term “subscription” can leave you a little worried about how long you are “locked in” to a subscription. With Athena Club, you don’t have to worry. You can easily see all of your account information, as well as, stop, skip and start the subscription at any time, so you have complete control. I have personally stopped, skipped and started different subscriptions with Athena Club and it is literally as easy as clicking a button in your account.
For my initial order, I ordered their Athena Club razor kit in White, which was $9 and included the handle, magnetic holder and 2 5-blade cartridges. I also purchased their 6.7oz Cloud Shave Foam for $9, so my total was $19.57. After that, the price varies based on how many blades you purchase. Price Structure: 4 blades every 2 months for $3/blade, 8 blades every 4 months for $2.50/blade, and 12 blades every 6 months for $2.25/blade.
SHIPPING & PACKAGING
Athena Club offers FREE SHIPPING and they have a very prompt shipping time. My Athena Club order arrived in a brown box with a navy logo. When I opened the package, it had an upscale feel and was in a luxury keepsake-like white box to match.
Now, lets talk about the actual, physical product starting with the handles, how they grip and the blades.
THE HANDLE AND DESIGN
The Athena Club razor handle has a luxury feel. It seems like the handle is made with more of a lightweight metal, but its still very light. I love the modern look of the design/grip and it feels solid in your hand. The blade is smooth and they offer the razor in 6 different colors including light blue, blue, white, black, blush and coral. The razor also comes with a magnetic holder that is minimalistic and works extremely well. Now, on to the most important part – the shave!
The shave is arguably the most important part, so lets get down to business. My Athena Club razor always leaves my legs feeling incredibly smooth and silky. The Athena Club blade feels firm and precise as it glides smoothly over my legs and leaves a silky soft feeling. After a year of using this razor, I can say it has never given me razor burn and I am incredibly happy with the quality of the shave. I love it so much.
Over the course of the past year, I have tried almost all of the other Athena Club products in their lineup as well, so I wanted to give you my quick thoughts on a few of my favorites.
Cloud Shave Foam: I use shaving cream every time I shave, so this is really important to me. The Athena Club Cloud Shave Foam is exactly that – It feels like a cloud of foam and a little bit goes a long way. I really like the texture of the foam and it works very well to compliment the razor.
Silk Scrunchies: The Athena Club silk scrunchies are made with the highest quality of mulberry silk. They feel very luxurious to the touch and hold your hair back while preventing any breakage or frizz. They come in a pack of 3 with great colors!
Soft Face Wipes: I like using these wipes when I am traveling, because they are incredibly easy to use. They are a great option for taking your makeup off on the go, or even for everyday.
All Day Deo: Their all day deo is the first plant based deo I ever tried and I have been using it ever since! I have tried their Tropical Bergamot scent and their Rose Vanilla. While I like both, I typically reach for the Rose Vanilla more than the tropical bergamot.
