A Closer Shave

Heated Razor by GilletteLabs

The hot towels wrapped around your face during a classic straight-razor shave at a barbershop aren’t just a relaxing ritual—they’re a way to ensure the closest, most comfortable shave by softening facial hair and skin. Now, with GilletteLab’s Heated Razor, the luxurious warmth of a hot shave is possible with every shave at home. The rechargeable razor, which costs $200, features a stainless steel warming bar that sits beneath five blades to warm your face as you shave. Once the heat is turned on, users can switch between two different levels of heat that is evenly distributed throughout the shave thanks to four heat sensors, while Gillette’s FlexDisc technology ensures that every facial contour and crevice is covered. With a fully waterproof design, the razor can also be used in the sink or shower. —Cady Lang
