Old-school shaving meets new-school tech.
Enter the safety razor, a favorite for in-the-know barbers when it comes to keeping themselves clean shaven. Not only does it give you a higher degree of control for a better shave, but it’s also a fraction of the cost, since blade refills are pennies on the dollar compared to cartridge refills.
Learn the finer points of using one at home (it’s easy, we promise) alongside this lineup of stubble-fighting add-ons. It’ll be your morning ritual’s new MVP.
A thoroughly modern take on a tried-and-true piece of tech. Standard Razors gave the razor a major upgrade, both in looks and performance, by adding a sleek and minimal design and then machining it from aircraft-grade aluminum. With its carefully engineered, low-profile design, it’s easy to find the right angle for a smooth and clean shave.
You’ll be in closer control of your shave, since safety razors more sharply cut away your whiskers, reducing irritation compared to other methods. Use it with the included blades, then when you run out, pick up some new ones without draining your wallet. That means you get a better (and, let’s face it, cooler) shave while also saving yourself some cash.
Made by the no-nonsense experts at The New York Shaving Company, this cream will give you a rich lather to protect your face as you shave, whether you’re using it with or without a brush. The moisturizing formula keeps your skin from drying out, and the thick foam safeguards you from nicks and irritation. All with a fresh, soapy barbershop scent.
Not all razor blades are created equal. Since everyone’s skin and facial hair are different, choosing your own perfect blade involves a bit of trial and error. To start you off, we’re including two different five-packs of blades so that you can fine-tune (and personalize) your routine. The Derby is smoother and more comfortable, while the Gillette is extra sharp and close-cutting.
Fight razor burn with this naturally effective mineral block. It halts bleeding, tones your skin, and closes up your pores for an easy and effective post-shave treatment. It’s the same stuff that’s been used as an antiseptic ever since Egyptian times. Talk about old school.
Soak this in hot water and hold it against your face before you shave to open your pores, then do the same with cold water once you’re done to snap ‘em shut.
