Maxim Grooming Awards: Best Shaving Products



Bet you never thought the words "oily" and "balmy" could be good things.




1. BEST POWER TOOL/SYSTEM
Braun Series 7 Shaving System

The flexing head, crazy oscillation, and self-cleaning/lubricating system make this the closest we’ll get to shaving like RoboCop. $229–$289

2. BEST HANDHELD RAZOR
Schick Hydro

The Advanced Hydrating Gel Reservoir feeds aloe vera and vitamin E right into your skin. Bonus: It also sounds like a play set for your Star Wars action figures! $9

Thanks to its handy blade stabilizer and precision trimmer, you could probably use this razor on a roller coaster and get a perfect shave. (But don’t.) $13

Philips Norelco Bodygroom

Avoid letting your man fur reach Robin Williams levels with this handy trimmer that works (and reaches) everywhere. $40
