Although many women find stubble sexy, it can be a pain—literally. For a close, comfortable shave, opt for Gilette’s Fusion ProGlide Power Razor ($12)

The optional battery-powered switch sends out soothing micro-pulses to make your shave effortless, helping the blades glide with ease—you’ll barely feel them against your skin—and she won’t feel your prickly stubble against her's.
Available at most drug stores.

Prefer a little scruff? Go for it. But too much can leave you looking beastly as opposed to rugged. Keep it tame with Remington’s Beard and Goatee Groomer ($35)
. With four trimming length options, it’s cordless, easy to use and comes with a nose, ear and brow trimmer—if you’re trying to pull out all the stops.
