#007 - Grooming Subscription

Mail orders have been getting another upgrade in recent years. Not only that we can order lunch, dinner and snack at any time thru the use of app like Seamless, innovating companies are now sending you deluxe grooming products thru subscription service. Just enter your credit card and the rest will be taken care of. If you have not known the following companies, here are some of the up risings we would like to introduce:

The Goods: Choose from one of three types of the upstart brand's signature blades: the Humble Twin, the 4X, or the Executive.
The Strategy: Four or five cartridges a month land on your welcome mat, making last-minute drug-store runs obsolete. Founder Michael Dubin also recently added, uh, butt wipes to the line. (Seriously. Watch the promo video.)

The Price: Blades are $1, $6, or $9 a month, depending on the style; wipes are $4.

The Goods: Deluxe-size samples of scrubs, pomades, and colognes from tried-and-true brands like Kiehl's and Baxter of California, plus goodie prizes like a Men in Cities woven-cotton belt.
The Strategy: Fill out an online profile about your grooming habits and physical traits (e.g., bald? Hair gels are nixed). Every month, expect a themed box of four or five items tailored to you. Anything you fall in love with can be bought in full size on the site (which also offers free shipping).
The Price: $20 a month

The Goods: Think full-size bathroom essentials—deodorant, toothpaste, and shampoo—that you blow through quickly. There's a solid selection of nightstand necessities, like condoms and Chapstick, as well.
The Strategy: Build a customized "pack" online that can be sent to you once or every three months.
Urban Cargo

The Goods: Expect a mix of mainstream and up-and-coming indie brands. Past boxes have doled out Evolution Man moisturizers, Wash With Joe body washes, and Hanz de Fuko hairstyling products.
The Strategy: Fill out a questionnaire about your hair and skin and receive a batch of products every three months that treat your problem areas. Each shipment comes with a $5 credit toward the online store.
The Price: $17.95 (quarterly)
