I got to know Shaves2U through my brother when he was talking about their products at dinner one day. He explained to me their concept which can be summarised as low price shaving products in a box delivered to your home. According to what he learned from Shaves2U’s ad, you can save a lot of money this way.
I went to search their Facebook page later as I was curious. I realized that their ads probably did not appear on my feed because their target audience is mainly men. (Yes, I’m a woman.)
But I thought, why should I be left out from all the fun? RM6.50 for shaving essentials? Count me in. So I signed up for their subscription plan anyway.
Getting my Shaves2U trial kit
Five days after I placed my order, the Shaves2U trial kit arrived with three smiling men of different races on the box greeting me.
I opened the box to see a razor and a tube of shaving cream inside. Everything about its design just screams ‘THIS IS FOR MEN,’ but I guess it was never intended to be in my hands in the first place.
But enough about that, what matters is the product, right?
I don’t have facial hair like my brother, so I had to try the products on my legs. The razor is sharp and it didn’t really take long for it to clear an area. The shaving cream lathers quite pretty quickly and makes the shaving experience smoother.
Overall, it doesn’t feel like there’s much difference compared to women’s shaving products. But for RM6.50, I’ll say it’s worth it! I’m not sure if it’s worth to keep subscribing to the shave plan, but according to the website, it says it will save you a lot of money compared to buying from other branded products.
I may not be the target audience of Shaves2U, but I’ll speak for myself anyway. I thought the products are great, but personally, I don’t think catering it to only men makes sense to me. At the end of the day, it’s a razor that works with a lower price.
