We get it, you're busy. Let's fast-forward to the good parts.
A great shave comes down to a great razor. But for the men out there who were raised to think the electric shaver is an end-all-be-all, knowing where to start is half the battle. It comes down to a couple of different questions that you need to answer before you take that trip to the bathroom. What should you look for in a razor? The close, personal shave of a safety/double-edged razor? The old-school charm of a classic straight razor? Or the ease of a men’s electric razor?
For the guys who are ready for that next-level shave, we put together some of the best men’s razors out there.
From lightweight lotions that cool and refresh to re-charging lotions that deliver a dose of black pepper to the skin, these are the seven best body lotions for guys.SHOP ALL RAZORS
Chances are you’ve already seen something like the Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Classic Double-Edged Safety Razor in an old-school barbershop. This handcrafted, chrome-finished, double-edged razor is a standard for barbers, experienced wet shavers, and amateurs on the scene. A little extra bulk on the handle allows for a smoother shave with a lighter grip while the two-piece design makes changing the blade a breeze.
If you’re looking for your new go-to razor, you’ve found it. Our very own Grooming Lounge 1745 Double Edge Safety Razor has been tested and re-tested for quality, offering exceptional results for newbies and aficionados alike. These are the razors we use in our barbershops, so you know it’s gotta be good.
Hard to pronounce, but easy to use, the Merkur Futur Adjustable Safety Razor is a solid adjustable razor for every skill level, beard length, and skin type. For sensitive skin, use the #1 setting to expose less skin to the blade or the #6 setting for a more aggressive shave — the power is literally in your hands.
With a handle sculpted to resemble an old-school barber pole, the Parker Vintage Butterfly Safety Razor 99R offers straight-up class with a modern edge. The classic “twist To open” mechanism makes changing your blade safe and simple, while the non-slip handle gives you the confidence for a flawlessly smooth shave.
We’ll be the first to admit that the Parker SRX Heavy Duty Straight Razor can look a little intimidating for first-time users. Different from most shavettes, the Parker SRX razor has a heavyweight stainless steel blade arm and a stainless steel handle along with a blade thatneverneeds sharpening. Pick your favorite double edge blade, snap it in half, insert it into the razor, and shave. It's that easy.
There’s beauty in simplicity and that sentiment rings true with the Dovo Shavette. With a durable and sleek design reminiscent of the barbershops of the past, this industry-grade shavette is an ideal introduction to open blade straight razors.
Don’t let this beauty intimidate you; the Dovo Classic Cut Throat has “smooooooth” written all over it. Made for grooming mustaches and sideburns, the Dovo Classic Cut Throat means business. Just make sure you do your homework before you bring this beauty into the bathroom.
