Contrary to popular belief, shaving does not make the hair grow back coarser – but the effects are very temporary. Razors have come a long way in the last few years, and personally, I think mens’ ones are a lot better than womens’. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor has extremely thin blades, a micro comb to guide hairs to the blades, a button to make it gently vibrate, so it can get even closer to the skin, and a strip that excretes mineral oil to keep your legs or under-arms moisturized.
Tip: Never dry shave, always wet the skin and use a shaving foam or oil (my favorite is The Art of Shaving’s Pre-Shave Oil) first. Make sure you replace your razor every 3-4 weeks before it gets blunt.
Razor Cost: from $10
