There are always a lot of questions that all of us guys have about when it comes to grooming and shaving. Should Should we use shaving cream? What shaving cream is good for my skin? What razor is best for my skin? I think you get where we are going here. We have done our research and all of the products below are great for your skin and are backed by dermatologists and thousands of 5 star reviews. Here is our favorite shaving and beard products that all guys need in 2021.
Shaving & Beard:
The Bevel Safety Razor is first up on our list. If you are not familiar with safety razors it might be time to take a deeper look at getting one for yourself. This razor is designed to help prevent razor bumps and irritation using double edge razor blades. Thanks to the heavier handle this allows gravity to do the work for you so there is less pulling and dragging of the razor.
A disposable razor with 2 replaceable blades for only $6.64? That’s something you can’t beat and your wallet will be thanking you later. The Schick Hydro Skin Comfort can comfortable shave up to 7 days of stubble. Shaving causes irritation of the skin but the blade has 19 Gel Pools infused with hydrating green tea to soothe and refresh your skin backed by dermatologists.
Electric Razors need love too. The Philips Norelco has been tested to be one of the best electric razors for a close and comfortable shave. The one blade has great technology which integrates a fast moving cutter (200x per second) with a dual protection system. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs but make sure you still follow up with one of our favorite after shaves below.
The Gillette Styler has been around for awhile now but we feel like it is an underdog when it comes to the electric razor aisle. For only $19.99 you can’t beat it. Just like the Philips this electric razor is waterproof so you are able to take this in the shower with you. This beard trimmer has Braun engineered technology and an easy grip handle for precise trimming. To top it off it comes with 3 different combs for your desired length (2mm, 4mm, 6mm).
The art of shaving is actually owned by Gillette, did you know that? This shaving cream is great for your skin since it contains hydrating glycerin and coconut oil. The sandalwood scent is relatively light which is a nice added touch. With almost 4,000 reviews and an average of 4.8 stars on Amazon you can’t go wrong.
This shaving gel is alcohol free which is great for people with sensitive skin. It contains a blend of soothing ingredients like chamomile, witch hazel and vitamin E. You might as well pick up two or three of these for the price.
Every after shave cream says that it helps with bumps and soothes the skin after freshly shaven skin. The Kiehls is formulated with Aloe Vera, Lipo Hydroxy Acid, Willow Herb Extract and Vitamin E, this post-shave solution instantly hydrating your skin. Aloe Vera helps with cooling of the skin. While, Lipo Hydroxy Acid is a derivative of Salicylic Acid which is commonly found in face wash that has renewing, exfoliating and acne fighting properties.
This after shave cream does not contain alcohol as well which means this product is smooth and gentle on your skin. The key ingredients found in this after shave includes sun flower seed oil which also helps with hydrating the skin. Overall this product helps reduce, eliminate and prevent razor bumps, ingrown hairs and razor rash.
Beard oil. Should you use it? Absolutely. A good beard oil should contain jojoba oil, argan oil, grape-seed oil, avocado oil – or a least one of the four. Jojoba oil is the closet oil in your skin, which helps with not clogging your pores. This Grave Before Shave Oil contains Jojoba oil along with a tea tree oil to help sooth skin underneath that stylish beard. You don’t want a beard that feels like sand paper, do you? If you do, we are not judging though!
Want to spend half the price but still get a decent beard oil? Check out this oil from Honest Amish; say that ten times for us. If you are concerned about the ingredients within these products we already did the research on them, so you don’t have to worry. This oil is a blend of different organic oils, such as jojoba, avocado, pumpkin seed, sweet almond, and argan. This is also a great oil to use if you are trying to grow out your beard. We wish you luck.
Last but not least is this beard balm from Cremo. Cremo is in almost every store front from Target, to Walmart and is now on Amazon. They are upfront with their ingredients which we love. This one includes a blend of beeswax, shea butter, and essential oils. This is a great product if you are looking to give your beard a small pick me up.
