Shaving can be a real pain — both figuratively and literally — it's an obligatory chore for most of us that can leave your face feeling razor-burnt and raw. But there are steps you can take to make it more of a pleasure, steps like the Baxter Hot Towel Solution. All you need to do is soak a towel in hot water before your shave, and spray it with the contents of this bottle, then do the same after your shave using cold water instead. The hot water opens up your pores, while the cold water closes them back up again, making it easier to get at those stubborn hairs while helping prevent irritation. And the natural ingredients in the solution take your shaving prep just a step further, with menthol, rosemary, eucalyptus, camphor, and more all helping to tone your skin.
Thankfully, the latest innovation in shaving doesn't involve adding a number of extra blades to an existing razor body. Instead, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBall Razor adds an actual ball between the blades and the handle, allowing the head to move, adjust, and pivot to follow the contours of your face, shaving more hairs with each stoke and keeping missed hairs to a minimum. Of course, it's still a Fusion, so it also boasts a five-blade shaving surface and a Lubrastrip for a more comfortable shave.
