FAQ: Shaving Kits for Men

What items are typically contained in a male shaving kit?

A standard male shaving kit usually comprises of a reusable razor, shaving cream or soap, replacement blades and a bag to store your accessories. Some male grooming kits also offer a brush, shaving balm, a stand for the items and a lathering bowl.

How do I pick the best men's shaving kit for myself?

Consider your skin type, shaving habits, and personal preferences. If you have sensitive skin, look for a male grooming kit with hypoallergenic products. For those who prefer a classic shave, a safety razor kit might be the best fit. Electric shaver kits are more suitable for those who want a quick and convenient shaving experience.

How essential is a shaving brush in a shaving kit for men?

A shaving brush is great for generating a warm, thick lather, ensuring hair lift and skin exfoliation for an efficient, smooth shave. It's also beneficial for evenly spreading the shaving soap or cream.

However you don't have to use a shaving brush. You can apply the lather created by your shaving soap bar with your hands. Each shaving set for men will be different, so have fun curating it.

In a shaving gift set for men, what role does aftershave play?

Aftershave is employed to disinfect and soothe the skin after a shave, minimising any irritation. It frequently contains beneficial ingredients such as witch hazel or aloe vera for their healing effects.

We recommend using an aftershave that uses natural ingredients with a low-alcohol content. This will be much gentler on your skin. 

Men's shaving kits increase in price when aftershave is part of the set, so make sure you pick wisely.

Which razor should I opt for when choose a male grooming kit?

The "perfect" razor varies for each individual. Safety razors provide a clean, close shave and are cost-effective in the long run, while cartridge razors are straightforward to use but might cost more due to frequent blade replacements.

Many cartridge razors are also disposable, too, so they are not eco-friendly towards the planet. Getting the balance between convenience and planet-friendly products is vital.

The best shaving kits for men usually take the environment into account when they're put together.

Is it possible to travel with a shaving kit for men?

Of course, men always travel with their shaving kits. Just remember to check the liquid restrictions for carry-on luggage if flying. Razor blades should be checked in with your hold luggage, too.

It's recommended to choose a travel-sized shaving setand make sure to check the airline's guidelines on bladed products and liquids.

What is the longevity of a shaving brush?

With proper maintenance, a high-quality shaving brush should endure for many years. To prolong its life, it should be thoroughly rinsed after every use and properly dried.

When should I change my razor blade?

Typically, a razor blade should be replaced every 5-7 shaves. However, if you observe any dullness, skin tugging, or frequent nicks, it's time to change the blade.

How should I store my men's shaving kit?

It's best to store your shaving kit in a dry, ventilated area. After each use, make sure to clean and dry all the items properly to prevent rusting and bacterial growth.
