ShaveKit, found online at ShaveKit.com, is a new United Kingdom based company which says they are able to offer their customers everything they need for “a quality shave at a smart price.”
How Does It Work?
Today’s shaving industry appears to be undergoing a revolution, with many different companies joining in and providing customers with direct delivery shaving product options so that they no longer have to the significantly higher retail prices they find at their local store.
ShaveKit is one of the newest UK providers of these kinds of services, saying that they provide their customers with the option for a great shaving experience delivered right to your doormat.
They promise that all of their products are equal in quality to some of the best respected brand name products on the market, because they work with very closely with the leading razor manufacturers to ensure that their customers are getting a product that is able to perform even better than most store bought brands, and at a better price.
The prices you will pay for a ShaveKit subscription depends on the personal choices you make you sign up. In order to see how much this subscription will cost you, you will need to let them know what kind of a razor you are interested in – one with three blades or one with five blades. All kits will come with a handle.
The website says that a four pack of the Three Blade Razors is £6.95 and a four pack of the Five Blade Razors is £8.95 per shipment, but ultimately what you will pay for your subscription over time depends on how often you want your packs to be shipped.
Customers have the option to choose whether to have them delivered monthly, bi-monthly, or tri-monthly. Customers are also welcome to pause their subscription or cancel it at any time, or if you choose to keep your subscription but want to make changes, the website says that people can upgrade or downgrade their delivery schedule or razor choice at any time.
Their website says that customers have to up 14 days from the date of receipt to return their deliveries unopened and unused for a full refund. They say that customers are welcome to return products for any reason as long as it is during this time period, but customers will be responsible for the cost of return shipping, unless they are returning a product due to damage or defect.

Invested £100 in the company when they went for public funding now can't get it out.
Its a total rip off, I made a one off purchase of £2.50, the next few weeks I was charged £36 without my authorization. I contacted them for refund, they make 1000 excuses I contacted my bank its still in dispute.
Having decided to do a trial with Shavekit.com having lost all my replacement blades - my daughter had "refiled" them as it turns out, awaited my email advising me that a new package was on its way as wanted to cancel. Package duly turned up with no prior email notice! Then, noticed that I had been charged
£36!! Contacted them by email to cancel and to get the package back to them unopened This was on the 27th July and cost me £4.70! Have finally today got confirmation that refund is on its way for the £36 but are refusing to reimburse me for the P
Signed up for this as I thought it was a good deal - rubbish cheap product - then shocked to discover charged £26. - impossible to cancel. Take advantage of people’s good trusting nature. Less than one star if possible
Absolute scam - ShaveKit refuse to let you cancel through their site until you buy more blades.
I purchased this trial kit on the 4th of May and was fully aware there was an automatic subscription to additional blades came with it, but it could be opted out of. I selected the lowest frequency of two months. My intention was to cancel the subscription upon delivery of the razor if I did not feel it was better than my current Gilette razor which it's not.
However upon delivery when I access the subscription section of the site there is no option to cancel. If I go to change the frequency it tells me the following: "It looks like you very recently signed up. Your trial order is currently being packed / on the way to you, check back here after your trial to manage your account details online." It goes on to say "Your trial ends on: 4 July 2020". This date is also the date that my next shipment gets send out.
Basically ShaveKit are forcing you to buy a lot of additional blades before they will let you cancel.
I had to call my card issuer to block them as a merchant. For anyone else who has ordered through this shame organisation, call you card issuer and advise them you want to block any further transactions from them.
Rude staff, rubbish product, offered refund numerous times still nothing recieved. Had bad experience with shave they could not care less said I need to get used to blade and handle and can take a while...ummm strange, just enough time till trial runs out and they take full amount.
Honestly I would avoid.
Be carful they never give a refund of £31 even after 3 months of returning the items .
I sent many messages but they don't answer .
I will make a claim as consumer services .
I ordered some razors and yes good value.then had a voucher for a gift box which was cheap this came was fine .
I had also placed order for razor on a set time low and behold my next order arrived and I had a complete kit and charged £31 plus the blades don't fit my handle and have shave foam etc I didn't want ...never give care details as they save them and no way to contact them at all best stay clear I think k..have tried to cancel standing debut but can't do on my bank account looking into it seems account is not uk based ..scam?????
