We’ve all pushed our razors to the limit. You know the drill: trying to get just one more shave out of them when they’ve been dull for longer than we want to admit. I won’t lecture you about why this is a bad idea (a less-than-great shave, skin irritation, infection, etc.), but I will tell you that cost shouldn’t keep you from changing your razor blades out on the regular.
This is especially true if you buy your razors from Dollar Shave Club. They make it affordable and easy to toss your old blade cartridges as often as you need to. Below, I’ll share my favorite tips on how to save on Dollar Shave Club at Walgreens, so you can safely stay smooth.

How often should I change out my razor blades?
Most razor blade cartridges can handle about 5 – 10 shaves before they need to be changed out.
But this varies a lot depending on how often you shave, and what you’re shaving. For example, some facial hair is more thick and dense — it’ll dull your razor blades faster. I recommend changing your razor blade cartridges about once a week.

Dollar Shave Club blade refills at Walgreens cost almost half that of Schick.
More blades equal a closer shave. Dollar Shave Club razors have six blades while comparable Schick razors only have five. The clincher? Dollar Shave Club blade refills are almost half the price of the two big-brand razors.
You’ll see this when you look closely at the unit pricing or cost per refill:
- Dollar Shave Club 6 blade, 8-count refills: $19.49 ($2.44 each)
- Schick Hydro 5 blade, 4-count refills: $16.99 ($4.25 each)
