With summer fast approaching, these shaving must-haves are here to bring you smooth skin just in the nick of time. Refresh your arsenal with products that prep, soothe, and shave sustainably. Here’s why the following picks are a cut above the rest.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub, $42

This ultra-fine scrub exfoliates dead skin to create a smooth, hydrated canvas for shaving. When skin is soft and conditioned, expect less of the cuts and irritation that can happen from dryness. Plus, exfoliation releases trapped ingrown hairs and promotes a closer shave. The formula’s crushed cupuaçu seeds gently buff while coconut oil nourishes and heals. The salted caramel-pistachio scent will also send your senses straight to summer vacation.

Kitsch Perfect Glide Safety Razor, $29

“Perfect” is hard to live up to, but after using this razor, you’ll realize why this word is in the title. The single-blade, stainless steel design means less drag and more comfort with a seamless glide. Even sensitive areas will have less razor burn, irritation, and ingrowns. As if that weren’t enough, the sustainable razor is plastic-free with an extra-long handle for effortless handling. Pair with Kitsch Shave Butter for cushiony hydration.

Kitsch Shave Butter, $9

Swap cream for shave butter, and don’t look back. The velvety formula envelopes and conditions skin while you shave for the ultimate smoothness. Also, you don’t waste a bunch of product like when using cream. Keep in a bottle-free beauty bag to preserve the life of your bar.

Glamcor Fogless Shaving Mirror, $135

No more missed patches, period. With a shatter-proof and fogless design, this innovative addition to your shower routine has a built-in ring of HD daylight LEDs with five brightness settings. The mirror securely attaches to any shower door, so you can get clarity, detail, and accuracy every time you shave.

Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Lotion, $18

After shaving, be sure to apply a rich lotion to keep the smooth feeling going. This fast-drying formula enriches skin with key ingredients, including vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 for ultimate softness that lasts.
