The inconvenience of the morning shaving routine is only made worse with cuts, skin irritation, and dryness. These are all signs that you have the wrong shaving equipment – a blade in need of changing, a bad aftershave, or, more likely, the wrong shaving cream. We dug through drug stores and barbershops to find the best creams, serums, and oils that will allow for a smooth, moisturizing shave for every kind of skin.
Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream
You won't see a ton of evidence that Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shaving Cream is working, but you'll definitely feel it tingling nicely as it softens your stubble. Unlike most of the shaving creams on this list, the scent is minimal, so it's great for men who aren't into olfactory face products. The combination of Sesame Oil, Olive Oil and Sodium PCA – a natural humectant that binds moisture to the skin – makes for a waterless, lather-less, and seriously smooth shave. You'll pass the blade over your face and wonder what the hell just happened. [$16, kiehls.com]
