Billie ~cuts~ your razor costs by delivering four cartridges at a time for only $9! Your first kit also comes with a chic handle and any extras you may need, majorly cutting down your list of things you need to remember to get at the store.


Billie

What you get: The starter kit comes with a handle, a magnetic holder, and two razor cartridges. Four replacement cartridges are sent every one, two, or three months, depending on how often you need them. Shave gel, lotion, and other extras can be added as well!

Promising review from a fellow BuzzFeed Shopping & Products writer, Yi Yang: “Shaving is probably one of my least favorite things to do, but after discovering Billie, somehow it doesn’t seem so terrible anymore. The main issue I run into while shaving is having no place to store my razor (I don’t like resting my razor on surfaces that haven’t been disinfected). Billie razors come with a magnetic holder that you can stick anywhere, and it just makes the whole shaving process So. Much. Easier. I just pop the razor on the holder whenever I need to rinse off or take a break and I feel at ease knowing it stays clean and within reach. It’s also safer than leaving the razor on the tub rim, where it can easily slip down into the tub and cut my feet! Also, I’m not a very hairy person so I like to re-use my razors for as long as I can, but they would always get rusty within a couple of days. The blades on my Bille razor have stayed rust-free and sharp at least twice as long as regular ones (I do keep it on a wall right outside the shower so it can dry off properly). As for the razor itself, it’s probably the smoothest one I’ve ever used. It almost makes shaving feel like a luxurious experience. I just love it so much!”

Get it from Billie starting at $9.

Atlas Coffee Club gathers delicious coffee from all around the world and brings it right to you and your mug. This subscription understands that you’re useless without your hot, hot bean juice and is 100% here to help.


instagram.com

What you get: Coffee and postcard from a new country each month, tasting notes and brewing tips for each batch. You can also set personalized preferences for roast and grind types.

Promising review from a fellow BuzzFeed Shopping & Products writer, Kayla Suazo: “My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN’-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it’s heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. Both of them were incredible both in taste and quality. I genuinely enjoyed waking up every morning and sitting on the couch with my coffee. There’s no better way to start the day, so if you’re asking me if I think this subscription is worth it I have a very easy answer: 100% YES.”

Get it from Atlas Coffee Club for $9+/month (choose from half a bag, full bag, or double bag).

Available in women’s sizes 0–24W (XS–3X) and men’s sizes S–XXL.

I’ve used Wantable and LOVE IT SO MUCH. I opted for the fitness edit and had some annoyingly specific requests for types of items I wanted. I didn’t use the option to pick something from the stream, instead just trusting the stylist to know the inventory and pull some killer stuff. It totally paid off! I was sent a box full of incredible items that were 10/10 and fit just the way I like them to. I kept five of the seven items and wear them all the time. Huge fan!

Get it from Wantable starting at $20/styling fee per box.

Enjoy your practical — and totally justified — subscriptions, everyone!
