If you've had trouble finding a power razor that suits your needs, perhaps you should give the Schick Hydro 5 Power Select Razor ($4) a try. Thanks to its comfort control system, it offers three different vibration settings so you can find one that suits your skin, a digital interface with LED screen, a solid, sleek design, and a single button that makes controlling it as easy as can be.
Style your 'stache like you style your hair with Moustache Pomade ($10). Made with organic ingredients and lightly scented with essential oils, it'll keep your upper lip in tip-top shape while keeping your growth under control.
Ask any significant other that's had to clean up stray hairs off the bathroom counter: beard trimming is messy business. Thanks to the Philips Norelco Vacuum Beard Trimmer ($40), you can finally ditch the tarp-like towel you've been using to keep your cut hairs at bay and trim with freedom. Features include a precision length selector from 1/32 to 23/32 of an inch, maintenance-free blades, a lithium ion battery good for 50 minutes of trimming, and, of course, an integrated vacuum system to ensure a clean counter and happy housemates.
Whether you're going for a clean shave or transforming your Movember 'stache into a full-on beard, the Braun Cruzer 6 Face Shaver ($65) has you covered. Unlike most all-in-one trimmer/shavers, the Cruzer 6 has an extra wide shaving foil so it takes fewer strokes to mow the hair down, while the adjustable guard cuts things to just the right length, and the twistable trimmer gives you wide and narrow sides so you can get as close — and detailed — as you want.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Thanksgiving to bring you the best new product of 2011: The Bear Deodorant Protector ($20) from Old Spice. Buy one and protect the stuff that protects you from sweat and stank, while displaying a noble trophy of manliness right beside your sink for all to see. Available in limited quantities, so order yours fast if you think your Matterhorn needs protecting.
Is your Movember 'stache — and any accompanying growth — getting a bit unruly? Spread a couple drops of Wild Man Beard Conditioner ($13) around your hairy mug. A special blend of sweet almond oil, Vitamin E, and Essential Oils of rosemary, lavender, cedar, and lime, it'll prevent blemishes, keep your growth feeling soft, and give your face a subtle yet manly scent.
Leave it to one of TV's most impressive 'staches to come up with the perfect comb.

Just the thing for keeping your Movember growth in check.
If you're both a) serious about grooming and b) flush with cash but c) don't live near a proper barber shop, then The Art of Shaving Power Shave Collection ($400-$450) is for you. This incredibly stylish set includes a first-of-its-kind brush, featuring either pure or fine badger hair, that uses powered oscillations designed to lift the beard and produce a rich lather, helping the weighted, powered, spotlight-boasting razor to shave that much closer. Polished chrome and black lacquered accents abound on the brush, razor, and included stand, making it one of the most impressive grooming sets we've seen.
When you think about it, changing tiny plastic combs out just to try and get your facial hair the right length is pretty archaic. The Remington Touch Control Beard & Stubble Trimmer ($50) does away with this concept for good by giving you control of an LED touchscreen, offering up 175 different lengths from 0.4mm to 18.0mm, or a wide enough range to handle nearly every style, from standard stubble to a moderate moustache.
Forget to shave in your rush to make out of the house on time? That wouldn't be an issue if you were rocking a Carzor ($17). This handy gadget combines a razor, blade storage, and a mirror in a collapsible, credit card-sized package, making it a no-brainer to carry with you at pretty much all times — just be careful when flying, as we doubt the TSA will find the tricky design to be as novel.

Is your handsome mug insured for several million dollars? Then perhaps you can justify buying a Zafirro Iridium Razor ($100,000). This insanely-expensive razor is also insanely advanced, featuring a handle made from pure iridium — which is mainly derived from meteorites — particle-sharpened solid white sapphire blades with edges that are less than 100 atoms across — roughly 5,000 times thinner than a human hair — and pure platinum screws to hold the whole thing together. Limited to just 99 razors, although we suspect they may have trouble finding that many buyers. [Thanks, Arrick]
It only makes sense that one of the most expensive shaving kits we've ever seen was designed by the same guy who designed one of the most expensive cars we've ever laid eyes on: the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The TwinLuxe Chrome Edition Shave Set ($800-$1,600) is a good match for the Phantom driver, featuring a devastatingly simple design with an integrated razor that packs Gillette Fusion blades, and a holder for the included dry TwinLuxe Shave Brush, all adorned in perfectly-polished chrome, solid white alumina ceramic, or a highly wear-resistant PVD coating. And if you're needing some skin and shaving creams, gels, and other products, they've got 'em, with bottles designed by the same Phantom vet.
We're giving away one these amazing chrome shave sets, thanks to the folks at TwinLuxe. To enter, just make sure you're subscribed to our daily email. We'll choose one of you gents at random.
It might look a little odd, with its oversized head, but it's that head that helps the Panasonic Vortex Arc Shaver ($180) deliver a consistently close shave. Capable of wet or dry operation, the Arc features an ultra-thin foil, Nanotech blades that cut hairs off at their bases, Multi-Arc floating blades for uniform, even pressure on hard-to-shave spots like the chin, a blue LCD status display, a pop-up trimmer, and a fully automatic cleaning and charging system to ensure it's ready to go when you need it.
Finally decide to get rid of your 5 o'clock shadow once and for all? Ensure it stays gone with the Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D Shaver ($240). This flagship shaver features three dynamic cutting elements mounted on a GyroFlex 3D platform, allowing it to conform to the curves and angles of your face, while the AquaTec seal lets you shave wet or dry. Other features include an automatic travel lock and carrying case, a zinc liquid metal frame, and a touch control display that lets you know when it's time to charge up.
You'd think that after all these years, someone would have figured out how to make a better nail clipper. And now they have. The Klhip is the result of reverse engineering the standard clipper, featuring a design that has you applying pressure directly above the blade, leading to smoother nails and no clippings on the floor. Made in the USA from surgical stainless steel and finished in an attractive satin, the Klhip may well be the cure for that nasty nail biting habit.
Do you really need another excuse to splash booze on your face? If the answer's yes, check out Kyoku Sake Infused Shave Cream ($35). Apparently, sake "softens and intensely moisturizes the skin" — which would have only served as more incentive to down a bottle of Wakatake Daiginjo — and this mixture also includes silicone micro particles to help your blade glide across your burly, wind-hardened skin.
If you haven't noticed, we dig black around here. So it's no surprise that we're enchanted by the Baxter 45th Anniversary Razor ($345). Produced in a limited run, this commemorative cut throat razor features a handmade, blackened Hart Steel blade, a special black Horse Butt Leather sleeve from Makr Carry Goods, and a black handle to round out the darkness, which is broken up only by the 14k gold inlay "45" on the spine. Good for serious groomers and deranged, black-obsessed killers alike.
Prefer a permanent five o'clock shadow to a perfectly clean face? Then the Philips Norelco Stubble Trimmer ($35) may be right up your alley. Sporting nine length settings, this precise powerhouse can trim as close as 1mm, and does so comfortably thanks to a flexing guide comb and self-sharpening, hardened Inox steel blades. Just remember that it's for facial use only, lest you end up with an itchier downstairs than your buddy who picked up crabs on his last trip to Panama.
