Shaving kits are not a one-size fits all item. The world of facial and body hair is vast and finding a shaving kit that fits your needs can mean the difference between happily showing off your smooth face and grumpily starting the day with a beard you accidentally trimmed too short.
When it comes to shaving kits, there are three main categories: there’s the wet shave, which is ideal for those who want a close, clean shave on their face; there are the body hair trimmers, which are sets that include attachments that can tackle ear, nose, chest, face, and head hair, as well as other areas (you know which areas we mean); and then there are shaving kits that are designed for beards, which we should probably call “non-shaving” shaving kits. These kits come equipped with products that will make your beard look and feel soft, while also moisturizing and conditioning the skin under your facial hair.
We’ve highlighted all three types of shaving kits on our list because sometimes one kit per person isn’t going to cut it. That was a shaving pun.
Whether you’re buying a new shaving kit for yourself or giving one as a gift (sure, giving a shaving kit isn’t an original gift idea, but it’s timeless and practical with a little bit of frivolous thrown in to make it fun), these shaving kits will help you look and feel your best.
1. Gentleman Jon Wet Shave Kit
Packed with everything you need for a quality wet shave, the Gentleman Jon Kit includes eight must-have shaving items all conveniently packaged in a reusable toiletry bag. Perfect for those who want a clean, comfortable and close shave, the Gentleman Jon kit comes with a safety razor, a badge hair shave brush, a shave stand, an alum block, sandalwood-scented shave soap, a stainless steel shave bowl, Astra SP razor blades, and a leather and canvas toiletry bag that is ideal for traveling.
Pros: The Gentleman Jon is a great bridge between traditional wet shaves, thanks to its shave brush, and the convenience of using a disposable razor, but one that will last long, give a great shave and not leave knicks and cuts.
Cons: Provided shaving bowl is small, making it difficult to create a lather.
2. Remington Head To Toe Lithium-Powered Body Groomer Kit
Get rid of unwanted hair everywhere on your body with the Remington Head To Toe Lithium Powered Body Groomer Kit, which includes attachments for nose and ear trimmers.
If you’re looking for a razor that will help get rid of unwanted body hair, we recommend the Remington. The lithium-powered electric razor comes with a full-sized trimmer for the face, a foil shaver, nose, ear and detail trimmer, a vertical body hair trimmer, a hair clipper comb for beards and hair, and three beard and stubble combs.
The hair clipper comb has eight length settings, enabling users to easily trim their hair to their desired length. The surgical steel blades are durable and can easily be rinsed with water.
Pros: We like that the Remington can last 70 minutes on a single charge, making it perfect for traveling as well as home use.
Cons: The Remington is a trimmer and not a shaver, which means it’s not well-suited for giving users a clean shave.
3. Fulllight Tech Beard Kit For Men
Using natural ingredients in their shampoo, balm and oil, the Fulllight Tech Beard Kit For Men will have you both looking and feeling your best.
Pros: The Fulllight Tech comes with a 2 oz. shampoo bottle, 1 oz. balm container, and 1 oz. of oil to promote hair growth and moisturize the skin under the beard. Also included in the kit is a boars’ hair brush, a comb and stainless steel scissors for quick trims. Recommended for daily use, the shampoo won’t strip your hair of its natural oils and helps to keep your beard healthy and shiny by adding vitamins and oils. We like that the Fullltech also comes with an E-book about how to properly care for your beard.
Cons: Though designated as unscented, the shampoo has a lingering smell.
