The Best Manual Razor for Most Faces Gillette’s Mach3 Sensitive
After 200 hours of research and testing, we found that the best razor is the Mach3 Sensitive Power. It shaves just as well as the latest razors but for a fraction of the price.

After 40 hours of research, surveying more than 500 Wirecutter readers, and spending a week testing trimmers with two professional barbers, the $37 Wahl Lithium Ion All-in-One is the best beard trimmer for most people. Its 2-hour runtime is above average, plus it has the sharpest blades, most reliable guides, and the most power of any cordless tool we tested.   Read More >
The Best Facial Tissue Puffs Basic Facial Tissues
We spent nearly 40 hours researching and testing more than a dozen well-liked facial tissues to find the best for most people. Puffs Basic facial tissue aced all our tests, first with a panel of sniffly humans and then with $40,000 worth equipment in an engineering lab. They're the most absorbent and softest non-lotion tissues we tested. Plus, Puffs cost the least per tissue. But if you’re looking for a lotion tissue or one made from recycled materials (shudder…), we have other recommendations as well.   Read More >
The Best Bath Towel Pottery Barn Hydrocotton
After weighing, soaking, drying, and washing a dozen of the best bath towels, we recommend the $25 Pottery Barn's Hydrocotton. It offers a great balance of softness, absorbency, affordability, and durability, and is likely to last over five years with regular use. In our testing it absorbed five times its weight in water and dried almost completely in six hours—just as quickly as the thinnest, cheapest towels we tested.    Read More >
The Best Eyelash Curlers Shiseido Eyelash Curler
We spent 20 hours researching and testing eyelash curlers—both traditional and heated. The $19 Shiseido Eyelash Curler gave us the longest-lasting curls on various eye shapes and, unlike most other traditional curlers, wasn't pinchy. We also have a heated pick, which is twice the price but creates a smooth, swooping curl that lasted four hours — longer than any other curler we tested.   Read More >

The Body Lotions We’d Get CeraVe Renewing SA
We teamed up with a chemist, interviewed five top dermatologists, and tested with a 50-person panel to find that CeraVe SA lotion is what we'd recommend for most people. Compared against the others we tested, our panel liked it the most thanks to its thick texture (without being greasy) and absorption rate. It's also fragrance-free, so it won't irritate sensitive skin.   Read More >

The Best Fogless Shaving Mirror ToiletTree Fogless Shower Mirror

The Best Razors Merkur Safety Razor
For the foreseeable future, I will be shaving my face with a Merkur Safety Razor and Feather razor blades. This type of razor takes some practice, but once you get it down, no setup can match the price, durability, comfort, and overall simplicity of a solid double-edge (DE) safety razor like the Merkur.   Read More >
The Best Tweezers Tweezerman Slant Tip
I use the Tweezerman Slant Tip to yank out my unibrow hairs. These tweezers cost about $20, are easy to grip, and have a blade sharp enough for precision work. Tweezerman will also resharpen the blades for as long as you own the tweezers. For special cases, we also have a recommendation for tweezers for removing splinters and ingrown hairs.    Read More >
The Best Electric Razor Braun Series 7 760cc
If I were buying an electric razor, I'd get the Braun Series 7 760cc.  After speaking with professional barbers, researching published reviews and literature for over 20 hours, and personally testing the finalists, we think it's the best you can buy and well worth the $175 price tag.   Read More >
