Traditionally men do not wear makeup, but that’s why we have beards! Warm, stylish, and versatile, it’s no wonder beards are back in style. But like any other part of your body, you get what you put in. Caring for your facial hair is best done with a good razor that fits your needs.

Here is a list of razors for every use and any budget.

Weishi Nostalgic Long Handle Butterfly Open Double Edge Safety Razor

This razor shaves close and smooth and offers everything you'd expect from a double edge and then some. The grip is great and feels well-balanced. Less than $20 but handles and feels like a razor at a much higher price point. WEISHI edges out the competition by upping the quality for the price.

Gillette ProGlide Men's Razor Handle + 2 Blade Refills

No list of razors is complete without an entry by Gillette so here is the best they have. Five precision blades, lubrication, and a flex ball for pristine mobility during the shave. This is a great option for trimming around the nose and other hard-to-reach places.

BIC Single Blade Razor, Sensitive, 12 ct (3 packs of 12)

Simply put, everyone needs a stockpile of cheap disposable single blades. They will never be the number one option, but they get the job done and can be bought in quantity for practically nothing. BIC’s Sensitive single blades get the nod over the competition because they are just a tad bit kinder to the skin.

Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Safety Razor

A great wet shaver for a first timer. Also another safety blade, but at a higher price point. This razor is more maneuverable than other wet shavers and has a great grip. In general, the Merkur is very similar to the WEISHI, just slightly better and more expensive.

BIC Comfort 3 Hybrid Men's 3-Blade Disposable Razor, 1 Handle and 12 Cartridges

A disposable razor of higher quality, the nice ergonomic handle and three blades ensures a smooth experience. There is added value in the overall package. Each purchase comes with 12 cartridges and a replacement handle.

Bevel Safety Razor - Double Edge Safety Razor for Men

“These razors are nice and all, but I have curly rough hair and it causes too many problems.” You’re in luck! Bevel engineered this single-blade razor for all the curly-haired people of the world. However, if your hair is normal there are better options out there. Definitely a blade with a particular niche in mind.

Schick Hydro 5 Sense Sensitive Skin Razor with Shock Absorb Technology for Men, 1 Handle with 2 Refills

This is another steal. There is a lot of technology stuffed in this under-$10 razor and it works great. The pressure-sensing technology and the slight skin-energizing lubricant stand out. The blade feels okay and isn’t too hard to move around, but for the price there isn’t much to complain about.

$7.00
