As a newbie to wetshaving I have been looking about (and keeping my wallet in my pocket) and I found this site :

http://www.wetshaveclub.com/

They send a box of shaving stuff to your house and refill it monthly. What do you think of these products? Any good?

I would say not to do it. You will be getting a ton of ideas of what to buy from the guys on the site and that will give you the freedom to buy what you want when you want rather than have an outside company take control of your buying power.

While it sounds like a great idea, I mean who wouldn't like to try tons of product for under a buck a day, much of what you will receive are samples, and a lot of the other items are pure junk. I know a couple people who have tried it and ended up with cheap Chinese brushes and Col. Conk soap. Ask around for some good ideas on how to start out. Personally I'd go to one of several known retailers and pick up one of their decent (not bargain basement) starter sets. To get things going a decent badger or horse hair brush, a Merkur 34C, some Proraso in a tube, and a selection of DE blades is enough to get you going.

Freddy and Wingdo say it all.

There are many very effective shave products on the market today ranging from very inexpensive to luxury.  However there are many junk products out there as well.

Perhaps the easiest way to get started would be to select a "starter kit" from a reputable vendor such as Italian Barber, Maggard's Razor or Bullgooseshaving.

There are quite a few reviews on the contents of these boxes out there and it just doesn't seem like a good value to me.  You'll be better off picking out your own stuff or buying a kit from one of the vendors.

I joined a similar club that i thought had better products than the wetshaveclub and it didn't take long to see it isn't worth the money.

Agree with the replies. Do a bit of reading or watching of youtube videos on the subject and go from there. The only benefit and its a small one I think given the amount of info out there on the brands and products in wet shaving is it may force you to try something you might not have if you had to purchase it yourself. With this you may find you enjoy some things/scents that perhaps after reading or hearing about them you may not have thought you would. Other than that I cant think of any reason to do a subscription to anything shave related.

i did it and dont regret it, though i recommend getting a better brush. try omega. the 1006 (i think) is around 9$. I want to get the Omega S brush, since im trying to move away from animal brushes (except for that vie long horse hair i want). anyways...you get the point. its a good place to start.

You don't need all sorts of products, focus on your technique,!!
