It's estimated that men spend between $100 and $250 each year on shaving, and it's clear that the cost of shaving creams, razors, and the occasional close shave can really add up. But these grooming and beauty deals can cut the cost of any grooming regimen without causing any nicks. We've found deals on razors, a trimmer, a shave kit, and more.

  1. Gillette Fusion Proglide Manual Cartridge 6-Pack
    Store: Amazon
    Price: $19.79 via $3 coupon with free shipping via Subscribe & Save

    Is It Worth It?: To help the fellas (and ladies) achieve smooth skin every day, Amazon is cutting up to 34% off a selection of razors and hair grooming products. This Editors' Choice sale puts the pictured 6-pack of Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridges at a low of $20 once you've clipped the $3 coupon on the product page and saved your extra 5% by ordering via Subscribe and Save. These 5-blade razors boast a lubricating strip coated with mineral oil and a blade stabilizer to maintain optimal blade spacing for comfort.

    For the ladies, Amazon offers the Gillette Venus Bikini Kit for $6.44 via the same aforementioned instructions. The Venus Embrace razor contains 3 blades surrounded by a protective moisture ribbon. Olay Bikini Moisturizing Lotion is also enclosed.

  2. The Art of Shaving Mid-Size Kit

The namesake kit includes a 1-oz. pre-shave oil, 1.7-oz. shaving cream, 1-oz. aftershave balm, and a shaving brush, and is available in Lemon (pictured), Sandalwood, Lavender, or Unscented. And while the idea of shaving is to remove the extra, add a little something more to your order to pad it to $49 and you'll receive free shipping.

  3. Remington Precision Nose, Ear & Eyebrow Trimmer
    Store: Fry's Electronics
    Price: $3.99 with free in-store pickup

    Is It Worth It?: Our Muppet buddy and resident unibrow-sporter, Bert (pictured) looks befuddled because he's gotta get to Fry's ASAP to grab this Editors' Choice deal before Ernie beats him to it. It's easy enough, though; head to your local Fry's Electronics to dodge the $1.99 shipping charge on this $4 trimmer. It's cordless and features an advanced cutting system designed to guard against the pulling of facial hair.
