Take care of all your shaving needs for the next month, season, or year in one purchase with Harry's Fall/Winter Truman Set ($20). This limited edition set includes a Truman handle, in your choice of seasonally-appropriate color schemes: ash fox, headily grange, nautilus captain, or woodsman. It also comes with three blades and shave cream — everything you'd need to avoid stubble for a month. Or, opt for a shaving plan and have blades shipped to your door every month, making picking up shaving supplies one less thing you ever have to worry about.
The buy one, give one movement is going strong with companies like Toms and Warby Parker — now Bogobrush ($40) has entered the mix. They offer a fairly-straightforward concept: a subscription service delivering a simply-made, environmentally- and socially-conscious toothbrush every three months (and for every one you get, an American in need gets one as well). The toothbrushes feature an entirely-biodegradable design, thanks to their bamboo construction. This helps you avoid contributing to the 450 million toothbrushes thrown away annually in the USA, all while helping spread good dental hygiene.
Shaving irritation — also known as burn — is a fact of life for most guys that rely on a electric razor. The Braun CoolTec Shaver ($200) aims to put that problem on ice. Literally. It's the first razor to incorporate Thermo-Electric-Cooling technology, cooling down as it runs, and using an aluminum cooling bar to soothe your skin with every stroke. Of course, it still needs to cut down tough hairs to be effective, and for that it has a three-stage cutting system with a SensoBlade that's designed to cut down hairs both short and long in a single pass, no matter which direction they're growing. Adding a touch of cool to the shaving aisle in August.
It's time to step up your shave game. Co-founded by one of the guys who started Warby Parker, Harry's is a new company that aims to shake up the grooming world, giving guys "a great shave at a fair price". Their launch collection includes two expertly-designed and super ergonomic razors ($10-$20) plus 5-blade replacement cartridges ($2) made by German engineers, and a special shave cream ($8) that's full of good vitamins and extracts. You can order all the Harry's stuff separately, or you can get everything in a set. Sayonara, stubble.
