Most guys are now well-versed in grooming products and regimens, whether it be skincare, beard grooming or manscaping. However, we still have some learning to do. With so many different products for scrubbing, trimming, moisturizing and so on, it can be tough to remember which is which, and it can seem impossible to build a great grooming arsenal.
Luckily, men’s grooming brands have realized that it’s difficult and time-consuming to shop through hundreds of products and create a lean set for your bathroom. As a solution, many top companies have created grooming kits that include everything you need for a specific body part (i.e. beard kit, skin kit, etc). Plus, these kits are usually compact and well-packaged, making them ideal for travel.
Finding a good grooming kit has resulted in a much easier routine for most guys, and typically a boost in attractiveness as the kits feature hand-selected products that work in harmony. If you’re in need of a grooming routine upgrade, check out some of the best men’s grooming kits below.
1. King C. Gillette Complete Men’s Beard Care Gift Kit
BEST FOR BEARDS

Basically, this men’s grooming kit has everything you need to sculpt the perfect beard.

Not sure about his skincare regimen or preferences? Or do you know for a fact that he doesn’t have one?

We know some men aren’t always up to code with their skincare regimen, but Geologie offers plenty of products that any man will immediately make a part of his permanent routine.

For a one-stop-shop grooming kit with the essentials to clean and care for your face and body, the Disco Basics Kit is the way to go. It contains a charcoal face cleanser stick, a eucalyptus body wash, a eucalyptus aluminum-free natural deodorant and a lightweight eucalyptus face moisturizer. Though you can certainly pick up a lot more grooming products, this Disco men’s grooming kit is a great place to start for the basics. Sure, it is a bit pricey, but you’re getting four high-quality natural products.
7. Bevel Body Essentials Bundle
BEST FOR THE BODY
We’re massive fans of Bevel here at SPY. This Black-made brand is a modern-day essential when it comes to Black needs in grooming. There haven’t been a lot of grooming products specifically made for the Black experience, so that’s entirely why Bevel exists. Their Body Essentials Bundle is made for every kind of guy with priority toward Black men. Bevel uses a number of different enriching ingredients to provide a line of products meant to soften skin and make you smell great. With each purchase, expect six of Bevel’s top-notch body nourishing must-haves you won’t want to spend one day without. Time to get lathering.
8. Viking Revolution Safety Razor Shaving Kit
BEST SHAVING KIT
For a great shave, you need (at least) three things: a high-quality razor, something to smooth the shave out and something to soothe your skin afterward. You’ll get all that and more with the Viking Revolution Safety Razor Shaving Kit. It contains all of the above in the form of a double-edge safety razor, shave soap and pre-shave oil, aftershave balm and a badger hair brush and shave bowl to whip up the soap. Not only does this kit have everything you need, everything’s high-quality and it’s well-reviewed on Amazon too, with 82% five-star ratings on almost 3,000 ratings.
9. Firsthand Supply Hydrated Hair Set
BEST HAIR KIT
Calling a shampoo and conditioner set a full-on “kit” might be a stretch, but we recently tested out the Firsthand Supply Hydrated Hair Set and couldn’t recommend it more. The shampoo is remarkably gentle for how well it cleans and doesn’t leave your hair feeling stripped out. If your hair does feel stripped out, have no fear, the conditioner will leave your hair feeling crazy soft. Plus, they’re both a lot more natural than many competing kits and 98% of the company’s packaging comes from recycled materials.
10. Oars + Alps Everyday Essentials Kit
If you’ve ever been interested in trying a new brand full-throttle, Oars + Alps offers an easy way for buyers to check just about everything they sell out for a low price. For just $85, buyers will receive the brand’s hydrating shampoo and conditioner, a luxury body wash, a solid charcoal face wash, a hydrating lip balm, aluminum-free deodorant and a tote bag that resists water. Everything is scented gorgeously, so we’re sure you’re going to fall in love after your first package.
11. Rapid Beard Grooming & Trimming Kit
Beards have gone from extra scruff to facial art. Most beard-wearers take serious care of their masterpiece with special oils, brushes and balms, so knowing where to start with beard care can be tricky. This highly-reviewed kit from Rapid Beard takes away the guesswork and shopping hassle by hooking you up with everything you need to make that scruff look its best. Use the unscented beard oil and beard balm to moisturize and control your beard, and then the brush, comb and scissors to trim or style that beast.
12. MALIN+GOETZ Essentials Skin Care Kit
BEST TRAVEL KIT
Hitting the road? Pick up this MALIN+GOETZ Essentials Skin Care Kit. It includes a high-quality face cleanser, moisturizers, body wash, shampoo and conditioner in TSA-safe 1-ounce bottles to ensure that you can look your best while traveling. Although this kit can also be a tester for MALIN+GOETZ’s fantastic products, we recommend keeping it handy as a quick grab-and-go to make packing easier.
13. Lab Series You’re Busy Set
EASIEST SKIN CARE KIT
The Lab Series You’re Busy Set is excellent and really easy to incorporate into a routine or use to kick off a brand-new one. It may only contain the Lab Series All-In-One Multi-Action Face Wash and the Lab Series All-In-One Face Treatment, but that’s all it takes to take your skin to the next level every day. We recently had a chance to test these two out and we think they’ll be mainstays in our bathroom drawers for a long time to come.
14. CGBE Manicure Set
BEST NAIL KIT
Trimming fingernails and toenails might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to the best men’s grooming kits, but it’s an essential grooming step for the well-groomed man. The CGBE Manicure Set contains all the basics and then some to give your fingernails and toenails new life, including two nail clippers, one large nail clipper, one cuticle clipper (a must-have!), one tweezer, one nail file and a whole bunch of stuff you won’t need but that’s nice to have in the included zipper case.
15. The Ultimate Kiehl’s Skincare Kit
SPY readers already know that Kiehl’s makes the best face moisturizers for men, and we love this brand’s premium skincare products. This is easily one of the best men’s grooming kits for guys who appreciate the finer things in life, and it also makes a great gift. The Ultimate Kiehl’s Skincare Kit is a great way to discover the brand’s most popular men’s products and indulge with some much-needed self-care.
16. Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body Hybrid Electric Trimmer
BEST FACE & BODY TRIMMER
Manscaping from head to toe is a must for modern dudes, but some guys still don’t have the proper equipment. Philips Norelco just made it easier with this trimmer/shaver that features two blades: one for your body and one for your face. This is especially handy for traveling, as you don’t have to bring a razor and a body trimmer. Plus, you can use it to trim stubble for that rugged yet groomed look.
17. Meridian Grooming The Complete Package
BEST FOR MANSCAPING
If you’re a guy, you’ve likely got some amount of hair all over your body. If you like it, all the power to you, but if you want to make sure everything is looking sufficiently trimmed and groomed in case somebody’s looking, pick up the Meridian Groomer for dedicated body grooming. The Complete Package from Meridian offers both the brand’s easy-to-use cordless trimmer and a spray to keep your downstairs region smelling great at all times. We’ve tested this trimmer ourselves and have only experienced wonderful results. No nicks, no cuts, no tears, just easy hair removal.
18. Tame the Wild Grooming Gift Set
Tame the Wild is a popular grooming gift set and an “Amazon’s Choice” winner in this category. Like the other sets on this list, SPY editors have personally tested and reviewed these products, and they’re a great starter set for guys who are just discovering self-care. You can also buy a version of this bundle with a beard straightener if you’re buying a gift set for a guy whose beard is totally out of control.
