Best Budget Buy:
Gillette Custom Plus Ultra Grip Disposables

This disposable gave testers a “slick shave that worked even without shaving cream.” What sealed the deal was its affordability: Sold in a 10-pack, the razors come out to just 80 cents apiece.

To buy: $8 for 10, at drugstores.



Bic Comfort 3 Advance Shavers

Best for Butterfingers:
Bic Comfort 3 Advance Shavers

If you nick yourself because you tend to lose your grip on a razor, this is for you. The weighted, ergonomic handle is thicker than the average razor’s and is covered in rubber, so it’s easy to hang on to in the shower.

To buy: $5.50 for four, at drugstores.



Preserve Triple Razor

The Eco-Option:
Preserve Triple Razor

Most razors aren’t recyclable, so if “environmentally-friendly” tops your wish list, try the Preserve Triple Razor (Starting at $7, Yahoo! Shopping). With a pivoting head and a trio of blades, it gives a great shave. What’s more, the handle is made entirely of repurposed plastic. And when the razor wears out, dispose of the blades in the trash, pop the handle into the included envelope, and mail it back to Preserve. Or find a drop-off recycling location on Preserve’s website. The company will turn the handles into plastic lumber for playgrounds.

    • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast.
