The thing about shaving is that it requires a lot of products: shaving oil, shaving cream, aftershave, razor. It seems like every time we turn around, there’s a new product (and new step) that we’re supposed to add to our routine. Whether you’re the kind of guy whose whole routine lasts five minutes, or you can spend most of an hour in front of the mirror, creating a shaving routine can be a lot of work.
That’s why we love razors – they can take the guesswork out of what to use. Instead of walking around the store with a basket full of products, razors offer the chance to get everything you need in one place (bonus points if it also includes a razor). Sure, most razors are designed as gifts for men, but we say give it to yourself first. They are the perfect opportunity to try new products, discover new brands, and maybe even improve the efficiency of your shave with very little bone work. So whether you already have a favorite brand or are trying to burn out, these are the 18 best shaving kits for every type of guy and shaving style.

Frederick Benjamin The Shaving Regimen
Any red-blooded man knows that not all shaving products are created equal, and this is especially evident if you have sensitive skin or are struggling with shaving lumps or irritation. This set is specifically designed with sensitive skin in mind. It contains a pre-shaving oil to protect your skin against the razor’s blade and a moisturizer that cleans bumps for afterwards. This is one of the few shaving kits that is not only focused on the act of shaving, but to keep your skin fresh before and after.

Jack Black Shave Essentials Set
Perhaps this set can be classified as a skincare set as well as a shaving set — it’s not just about shaving. It compensates for the lack of razor by including a facial cleanser, an essential first step for any shave, and a moisturizer that doubles as a aftershave. It is a valuable investment even if you do not shave every day, because we hope you wash your face and apply moisturizer even if you do not remove the razor.
Best shaving kit for sensitive skin
Bevel Shave System Starter Kit
Guys with sensitive skin know that shaving can be a struggle that causes skin irritation and lumps razor burn. The Bavel shaving system is specifically designed to reduce razor bumps, ingrown hairs and post-shaving irritation. The safety razor may get a little used, but it may be a game changer.
Best luxury razor set
The art of shaving Heated razor with sandalwood razor
Is a heated razor worth taking out some Benjamins for this ultra-luxurious set? Absolutely yes. The innovative razor makes it a dream to get a nose shave (it is a Men’s health Grooming Award winner for a reason) and coupled with the rich, sandalwood-scented Art of Shaving products, this set instantly transforms your bathroom into a flashy barber shop.
Gillette Fusion Proshield Men’s Shaving Gift Set
Even guys without sensitive skin can benefit from the soothing protection of both the Gillette Fusion Proshield razor and the Pure shaving cream, both of which help protect the skin from irritation while shaving. The best part of this set is that it includes 4 razors; on their own they would cost more than the set itself.
Gentleman Jon Complete Wet Shave Kit
Shaving is not always a means to an end – sometimes it’s about the experience. This very traditional set does not have modern elements, such as a multi-blade pattern razor or even shaving cream in a tube. Instead, it’s about as classic as it gets. It has a safety razor, a brush, shaving soap and a special bowl to lather it in – just like your hairdresser does. It is not for the shaving beginner, but anyone who likes to slow down and take their time with their shaving will appreciate it.
Best beard friendly shaving kit
King C. Gillette Complete Beard Care Kit
Just because you have a beard does not mean you have to put the razor away forever. This cool shaving kit contains a safety razor and transparent shaving gel to easily clean the neck and edges of a beard, but there are also beard care products to make facial hair shine. It’s perfect for a guy who treats his beard with the utmost care or likes to experiment with facial hair every now and then.
Best eco-conscious razor set
Bulldog shaver set
Although no additional razor patterns are included with this set, we still love it, because the durable bamboo handle razor is the shining star (we love it so much that we have a Men’s health Care grant). The shaving gel and moisturizer in this set have the same eco-friendly clean atmosphere and still deliver a great shave.
Dollar Shave Club Ultimate Shave Trial Kit
Whether you are completely new to shaving or just looking for your routine, the best thing about shaving kits is that it offers a chance to be more streamlined. Case in point: this complete set, which comes with everything you need for an easy, smooth shave. We love that there are enough shaving patterns included to realistically get a full month of shaving out of this set alone – something that not many other kits can offer.
Acqua Di Parma Barber Essential Shaving Kit
Harry’s Holiday Gift Set
This shaving kit contains everything you want Men’s health Harry’s favorite: a rubberized razor handle in a limited edition blue tint, three sharp, German-manipulated razor cartridges, and the brand’s classic shaving gel.
Caswell-Massey ROS Premium Shaving Gift Set
If it is not broken, why fix it? Classic American pharmacist brand Caswell-Massey has been around for over two centuries and little has changed to their naturally-derived products (which is a good thing). This shaving kit is for the guy who does not want a lot of bells and whistles, but knows his way around a shaving brush. On top of that, it contains a bottle of the brand’s famous Ros cologne as a bonus.
Every Man Jack Natural Menthol Shave Kit
Tinting shaving products applied with menthol help a lot to make your daily shaving feel like an experience. It lets you know with a tingling, o-so-clean feeling that ordinary shaving cream just does not deliver. As much as we love the minty shaving cream and the matching razor in this razor set, the real winner is the Dopp set, which you will use over and over again, even after the products run out.
Chanel Bleu de Chanel Shaving
It does not become more luxurious than that. Chanel’s limited edition shaving kit includes a full-size shaving cream and magnetic shaving brush, all housed in a distinctive pouch. The gentle Chanel scent elevates the shaving experience to new heights.
Harry’s Winston Razor
The beauty of this razor set lies in the simplicity: shaving cream, razor, patterns. But the reason to get this one, especially if you’re a true Harry’s fan, is the special edition copper razor handle. It still has the rubber handles you want, but feels firmer and more luxurious in your hand than the classic plastic. On top of that, it looks damn good in your medicine cabinet.
Gillette Fusion ProShield Bundle
This razor set includes the Gillette Fusion ProShield, one of the best pattern razors on the market to deliver smooth, close-cut razors every time. However, the real attraction of this set is the game-destroying eight cartridges included – far more than any set out there and enough to last about two months.
Barbasol Shave Club Starter Kit
Barbasol is one of the original barber shop brands and still makes some of the best shaving products out there, even after a hundred years. With six ultra-thin blades, plus a refill cartridge, you can not go wrong.
CO Bigelow Premium men’s shears
A simple shaving set like this is not about bells and whistles – it’s for the guy who demands the best in everything, including his shaving products. New York City pharmacist CO Bigelow has been around for almost 200 years and does not take its products lightly. The Italian-made shaving cream is thick and luxurious, and the weighty razor handle is made in England and both speak for themselves.
