T3 rate Cornerstone #1 in the razor subscription market

Sam Horti of T3 discusses how to take the hassle out of shave shopping with the best online subscription razors

If you haven’t fallen victim to the hipster revolution, and favour a wet shave over electric, then you’ll need to buy razor blades – and that’s where a subscription service can help you. Forget the hassle of going to Boots and working out which of the infinite range of razors to purchase – as if having to shave every day isn’t hardship enough – instead, buy them online.

Set up a shaving subscription, and you can release yourself from the drudgery of shopping, secure in the knowledge that fresh blades will drop through your letterbox at regular intervals of your choosing. And it’s not just razors you can buy, but the whole shaving shebang including shave gels and creams, post-shave balms and facial scrubs, not to mention gift sets, fancy washbags and the like.

Oh, and if you do prefer just going to the shops to buy razors we do actually have a more olde-worlde best razors top 10 for you.

HOW TO BUY THE BEST RAZOR SUBSCRIPTIONS

First, pour yourself a whisky/craft beer/glass of wine or quaffage of your choice (non-alcoholic is also acceptable). Then, sit back and peruse the websites mentioned below to find your preferred purveyor of shaving products. Finally, select your subscription, pay up and congratulate yourself on a job well done.

Complicated subscription model

Cornerstone is a relative newcomer to the market, offering razor subscription boxes that arrive on your doorstep as and when you choose.

It’s relatively affordable: if you order 6 razor blades for £14 in your first box you get the handle for free. The only downside is that the ordering process is more complex than with other razors (you pick a delivery schedule for boxes to arrive every X weeks), but you can cancel and adjust at any time or order one-off items. Overall, very impressive.
