What comes in a shaving kit for men? What comes in a shaving kit for women?
Shaving kits for men and women will not be that different. Razor, razor blades, brush, and lubricant (shaving soap / shaving cream) are fairly universal items in every kit. Some differences that you might discover in specific shaving kits might be the razor handle length. Woman wet shavers sometimes prefer a long handle for longer strokes over legs. Colors, scents, and add-ons might differ from kit to kit as well so you can pick the one that is right for you.
What comes in a safety razor shaving kit?
A safety razor shaving kit can be an excellent and economical way to break into the wet shaving gig. The most basic kit will likely contain a brush, safety razor with blades, and shaving soap / shaving cream. With these items you should be able to complete the necessary steps for classic wet shaving - from whipping up the lather, to applying it to your face, to shaving.
Many safety razor kits come with additional items to enhance your shave. Shaving stands for razor and/or brush, mugs/bowls for whipping up a lather, and aftershave splashes are common add-ons.
