Add a touch of class to your shaving routine with C.O. Bigelow Razors ($49-$79). Featuring handles made from imitation ivory or ebony, these blades recall the days of main street barber shops, but balance the old-timey looks with advanced, replaceable Gillette Mach 3 blades. It's the best of both worlds.
Get a close shave while saving some wildlife with the Anthony Logistics For Men Whisker Lifter ($80). Performing like a silver-tipped badger brush, this oversized brush features soft, man-made bristles that help soften and lift beard hair to give you a barbershop-like shave. The brush boasts an anti-bacterial coating on the bristles, sports a high-gloss black handle, and comes with a matching stand.
As a result of the additional moisture, steam, and warmth, shaving in the shower provides many benefits, like a closer shave, smoother skin, and less mess. But you'll need a high-quality, fogless mirror in order to get the job done right. The ACE Fogless Shower Mirror ($24) uses a "water reservoir" to equalize the temperature of the mirror and eliminate fog, draining itself of water afterwards to prevent mildew. The acrylic mirror attaches to the shower wall with strong suction cups, and provides a flexible holder for your razor.
Does that two-o'clock shadow betray the fact that you're using a sub-par electric razor? The Emjoi RotoShave Rechargeable Electric Razor ($120) might be able to help. It combines the kind of close shave you thought you could only get from a razor blade with the advantages of a portable electric shaver. Nine rotating blades moving at 270 strokes per second glide over your skin, while a patented safety guard protects your face from nicks and cuts while preventing irritation. The RotoShave has two speed settings to accommodate light or heavy beards, and charges in its travel-friendly dock in under an hour.
Hair trimming is an important, even critical part of male grooming. To help us master this delicate art form, we need the right gear. The Braun BodyCruzer Body Groomer ($60) combines their most advanced, completely water-proof electric trimmer with Gillette's Fusion razor to create the ultimate in multi-purpose shaving technology. Trim and shave longer hairs in just one stroke with the powered electric precision trimmer, using an attachable comb to control hair length. Or use the Fusion blade and enjoy an incredibly close, comfortable shave as you completely remove hair from any body area. Just be careful, there are some things you don't want to remove.
With an adjustable head, the Merkur Futur Razor ($77) is the safety razor everyone can love. It offers six settings which allow you to adjust the distance between the blade and the safety bar, letting you get the closeness you desire while saving your sensitive skin. It's a win-win.
Get a smooth shave no matter where you are with the Braun PocketGo P-70 Shaver ($12). This ultra-portable razor is powered by two AA batteries, and features a washable design, a wide floating foil for added smoothness, a long-hair trimmer, and a twisting design that locks and protects the foil when it's in you pocket or bag.
Give yourself a close, comfortable shave with Cremo Cream Superior Shave Cream ($8). Cremo Cream contains no air, leaving you with nothing but rich, thick cream full of lubricants to help your blade glide across your face and skin conditioners to leave your face soft and smooth long after your 5:00 shadow begins to reappear.
Get all the essentials in a handsome holder with the Anthony Logistics Stainless Steel Manicure Set ($18). This travel-friendly set, at home in your bag or on the bathroom counter, includes tweezers, scissors, nail clippers, and nail filer.
Usually, house brands are crap. Usually. Not so with the Grooming Lounge Greatest Shave Ever "Try Me" Kit ($20). This TSA-friendly sampler set includes the company's Mug Cleaner Face Wash (2 oz.), Beard Master Shave Oil (1 oz.), Beard Destroyer Shave Cream (2 oz.), and Best For Last Aftershave (2 oz.). Developed and perfected just for you at the Grooming Lounge barbershop in Washington, D.C.
Among the myriad of things that suck about getting old is the onslaught of hair growth in unsightly places — especially in your nose and ears. Keep these age-spurred outbursts in check with the Philips Norelco Precision Nose and Ear Trimmer ($13). Water resistant for easy clean-up, it features an angled, miniature head for better reach and control, battery power for maximum portability, and included attachments for keeping your eyebrows in check, as well.
Get clean with some help from the bar. The Zirh Cocktail Bar ($15 each) lets you pick your poison: Cucumber Martini ("light, crisp, transparent hydration"), Hurricane ("tropical rejuvenation with a twist of lime"), Long Island Iced Tea ("caffeinated citrus-cola renewal"), Sake Bomb ("an explosion of detoxifying hydration"), or Screwdriver ("cool, colorful citrus invigoration").
