We all know when it comes to shaving we all have our own routines. Unless you get your beard groomed at the barbers I feel like when it comes to home shaving there is room for change. Ideally if your shaving it all off your looking for 3 things in a shaving kit; Easy to use, no pull, close shave - There are plenty out their that will tick all three of those boxes so what makes you use the one you've got now? The cost? The style or the quality? We've been searching online for some of the best and affordable shaving kits to bring an element of luxury to your shaving experience and we have picked our top 5 for you!

The first one is German shaving brand Muhle. The brand offers a range of shaving sets from a traditional style to the modern look. For this guide we have chosen is the Muhle sophist ironwood 4 piece silvertip / safety razor shaving set. This set sells it's self, the Ironwood - one of the hardest woods in the world is extremely high density makes it incredibly resistant. The set just screams luxury, with the silver traditional shaving brush and bowl helps to give that dark brown ironwood that silky look finish. The Safety Blaze razor is thought to be one of the easiest to use and you can get your very own set for just £272.00.

Russell's Shave club is our next choice is a British shaving brand. Normally with 'Shaving Clubs', you are looking at cheap products promising to be something their not but, at Russell's shave club they have changed the perspective, the brand is providing quality shaving kits for an affordable cost.

Parker Shaving are next to feature in our guide, with this sleek looking SR1 Barber Razor and Pure Badger 3-piece shave set. Again another feature for the cut throat barbers razor. Offering that close shave its one of the hardest razors to beat. This elegant looking 3 piece set features shaving brush and a stand for the set.
