There’s a reason barbershops do hot towel shaves beyond the fact that they’re super relaxing. A hot towel releases steam to open up the pores, soften hair and soothe irritated skin. In turn, you get a close shave and easily remove dead skin cells, oil and dirt.

Gillette’s Heated Razor can give you a similarly luxurious experience and an ultra-smooth finish at home. The five-blade razor heats up to the temperature of your choice in less than one second, and its swivel blade gently glides over your skin. Plus, it’s completely waterproof, so you can shave at the sink or in the shower.

You do have to charge it, but its battery should give you up to six shaves on a single charge. Nonetheless, it comes with a small magnetic dock for wireless charging.

That said, this Gillette Heated Razor Starter Kit on Amazon includes the heated razor handle, two blade refills, a wireless charging dock and a smart plug.

I recently got my hands on a sample of this heated razor and swiftly handed it over to my boyfriend. After one shave, he physically ran to show me just how smooth his face was. He said it was the best razor he’s ever used — no nicks, cuts, razor burn or leftover stubble. I felt his face, and it was indeed incredibly soft and even a bit glowy.

Now, one thing I will say about my boyfriend is that he can be brutally honest — it’s part of his British charm. When he says he likes something, he means it. And when it comes to spending money, he prefers to invest in high-quality items that will last him a while.

He said he would buy this heated razor over and over again, and he even recommended I get one for my dad and brother for Christmas. Now that it’s on sale, I most definitely will.
