Lots of great things came after we hit puberty, namely getting more hands-on with our boners and with boobs. A big downside to the boners and boob touching: shaving.
It sucks and there’s no getting around that. But since it’s something many of us have to do every day or so, we’re all for spending some extra loot on a quality razor that leaves us with silky-smooth skin without causing razor burn or bumps.
Some of that falls on your choice of grooming products and your shaving technique, and some of it falls on the type of razor you’re using. In other words, if you’re after the best shave, you’ll need the best razor for your face. Yes, you can walk into any drug store or Target and run into no less than 40 razors. Some are cheap, some are quality picks. The ones we found are stylish and have personality. Check them out …
