This Black-owned business creates razors that are made-to-order and will ship eight to 10 weeks after your order is placed. This particular purchase comes with a pack of 10 blades.

Promising review: "This razor changed my life. I have always broken out in razor burn and ingrown hairs. I could only shave once every week at the most so I always had prickly legs. Once I started using the Oui the People razor, I have smooth silky legs because I can shave as often as I want. It's gentle on my skin and my ingrown and razor burn has almost disappeared (I've only had it two weeks). This is the best investment I've made for myself." —Carson Bute

Pre-order it from Oui the People for $75.

Pulling nose hair straight from the root will give you results that can last up to FOUR weeks! With this kit you'll have 100 grams of nose wax beads, 30 wax applicators, 10 mustache protectors, a measuring cup, and 15 paper cups at your disposal.

Promising review: "I highly recommend this product. The instructions were super easy to follow and it worked perfectly! I was a little nervous to pull the sticks out once the two minutes were up, however it didn't even hurt. I expected it to hurt momentarily and my eyes to water, but neither was true! If you wanna get rid of them pesky nose hairs...snag this product!!!" —Julie J.

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these things. This was the best investment I ever made for my skin. I had so much texture, and so many layers of dead skin from exfoliating with it. This is what my skin needed to kickstart it and to allow my actives to penetrate further. These are surely professional-grade, and they need to be treated as such. I understand the price is steep, but I promise you – they are worth it!" –LeahRoll82

Get it from Sephora for $23.50.

This gentle formula uses aloe vera, vitamin E, and baby oil to protect your skin while removing hair much closer to the root. It's safe to use on your arms/underarms, legs, bikini zone, hands, and feet, but isn't recommended for your face.

Promising review: "This fab product removes unwanted hair in a jiffy. It's a great value. There is no irritation at all. I am sensitive to fragrances, but this has an all-natural smell. This does a professional job at a fraction of the cost." —Romesh

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

I use a Billie razor and love it. In fact, a bunch of people on my team do! A few of my colleagues wrote a full review on how great the Billie razor subscription service is! BTW, this starter kit includes the razor, a magnetic holder, and two five-blade razor cartridges.

Get it from Billie for $9/month (available in four colors).

It seems like there's a reason this tool has over 52,000 five star reviews! BTW this requires one AA battery, which is included.

Promising review: "This product is truly a life changer for me. I have PCOS and one of the side effects is excessive hair growth. I’ve tried so many different things to deal with the hair on my face but nothing has worked like this! Normally I use a straight razor to shave my face but it would leave razor burn and took forever to do. With this my face feels so soft and only takes about two minutes! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!" —Ashley

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in six colors).

This patented polymer formula is dermatologically tested with an anti-bacterial formula and safe to use on all skin types.

Promising review: "I first experienced Cirepil wax when getting a Brazilian done at a professional spa. I was blown away at how gentle the wax was on my skin and how I didn't look like a plucked chicken for the first time! The tin fits perfectly in my GiGi wax warmer and is so easy to use. I gave myself a Brazilian for the first time ever and it turned out great! The wax clings to the hair perfectly, which cuts down on any extra 'ouch' pulling. What also helps to attribute to less pain is that no annoying strips are required." —Madison

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

Promising review: "I love this product and brand. It has helped a lot with razor burn and just overall smoothness after a shave. It's amazing." —Erie, PA

Get it from Free People for $28.

This master of hair removal has over 28,00 five-star reviews! It comes with a charger and a battery that'll last 20 minutes on a 12-hour charge.

Promising review: "I wasn't sure I believed the hype about this razor but I figured, for the price, it was worth a shot to combat my chronic bikini area razor burn issues. Let me tell you, I will NEVER go back to shaving my bikini area with a razor again. This product is fantastic! The pop-up trimmer handled some of the longer hairs very well, I just used that all over first. Then the foil shaver got a nice smooth shave. No bumps or nicks like I used to get from shaving with a razor. I also tried it on my legs and loved it as well! I'm going to recommend this to all my female friends and will probably purchase some as gifts. I think this is a must have product for every woman! This is life-changing in the best way." —Sutton

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (also available with a bikini line attachment).

Promising review: "This is fantastic to use. It won't start showing long term results immediately but within the first treatment I did notice my hair taking longer to grow back than normal. I look forward to continuing to use it! It's relatively painless and extremely easy to use. The instruction manual is in depth and explains everything you need to know!" –Laurel Fink

Get it from Amazon for $99.98.

This kit includes a safety razor, shave brush, shave cream, priming oil, restoring balm, and 20 double-edge blades. You can also get each individual product to try out. These high-quality products are a great way to add luxury to your skincare routine while also supporting Black-owned businesses.

Promising review: "This kit is the way to go!!! I will never go back to multi blades again. I deal with razor bumps on my head and this product helped SIGNIFICANTLY!!! The products are great!!!" —Nieco

Get it from Bevel for $89.95 (or subscribe for $59.95 a month).

Promising review: "I bought these for a cruise last year. Cruise ship bathrooms are notoriously tiny, in the shower especially. Having the very short, comfortable handle made it extremely easy to shave in very tight quarters. The five blades made for a very close and smooth shave on my legs. All the better for island hopping! Seriously, I can honestly say that these are the best razors to do the job beautifully and comfortably, that I've purchased in many many years!" —CruisnTrkrs

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

This uses a low melting point, meaning your skin is far less likely to get burned, even if you've never used an at-home wax before. The entire kit includes five bags of FDA-approved waxing beans, 20 waxing sticks, 10 eyebrow waxing sticks, one pre-spray, one post-spray, 10 gloves, and five protective rings. The digital read out makes it easy to see how hot your wax is and uses colors as a fool-proof way to show you if it's too hot or not.

Promising review: "This is an amazing waxing set and I love it. I use it on my underarms and bikini areas and it's work is amazing. I was worried it wouldn't get the job done because it was so cheap but this exceeded my expectations. It melts the wax so fast on high, I then I lower it all the way down about five minutes before I use it, just to be safe. My skin is very sensitive and I don't have any problems with this. I am a cosmetologist and I would use this on my clients. You won't regret getting this wax set!" —Jennifer

Surprised that a basic pair of tweezers would be this popular? Take your doubt on over to the over 19,000 5-star reviews!

Promising review: "These are the best tweezer I've ever owned. This awesome tool really knows what it's doing. I have been plucking blindly at chin hairs for over ten years and have always been frustrated by my other tweezers. Now, with one pluck, those darn chin hairs are gone. I wish I'd known about these a long time ago. It's amazing how much life can be improved by a good pair of tweezers. I also used these the other day the get a shard of glass out from under my fingernail. I don't know how I would have gotten it out without these. I love, love, love them." —Tammy

Get them from Amazon for $7.97.

Promising review: "This is a game-changer. As someone who is mixed with Iranian and black you have an idea of how thick and dark my hair is. Unfortunately, it grows thick and dark on my upper lip and chin area. I used to go weekly to get these areas threaded or waxed and trust me, it can get pretty expensive! If I were ever strapped for cash I would be stuck with a five o'clock shadow. I have tried waxing those areas myself and I just didn't seem to have the skill or some of the kits were not strong enough for my hair. This tool is like the miracle I needed. Is it painful? Yes. But it's not anymore painful than threading. I can use this during my nightly routine and not be tied to salon hours. I absolutely love this product!" —Manijeh Brooks

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

Promising review: "I've been using this lotion for years and I love it! it definitely slows down the hair growth. Before I used this, when I would shave my legs, there would be stubble within 24 hours. Now when I shave it takes two days to come back! Even if it didn't work as a hair inhibitor I would use this for my daily lotion. It smells amazing and is a great moisturizer. I hope they never discontinue this product!" —Anonymous

Get it from Target for $10.99.

Promising review: "These razors are so amazing and easy to use. Simply angle the blade and stroke with the direction of the hair. I don't even have a lot of peach fuzz on my face, I mainly wanted to get rid of baby hairs on my hairline, and facial hair on and under my jawline continuing to my neck. The whole process took under 10 minutes. I was able to clean up my hairline, both in front of my ears (the sideburn area) as well as head hair on the back of neck (I wanted to clean up my hairline a bit). I've never heard of this brand before, but I took a chance and I'm so happy that I did! If you're wanting to do some easy, painless, quick, and cheap facial hair removal then this is exactly what you need. Enjoy you new, smooth skin!" —Brooke

This uses a rechargeable lithium battery and includes the charging port. This can be used with or without water and shaving cream (thanks fancy blades!) but it's not intended for use on your underarms.

Promising review: "I typically like to wax or epilate but during the winter I tend to let it go. I must say I am impressed with this product. I have sensitive skin, keeping me from shaving because of razor burn but this really is a great alternative. It’s nice and compact and I love that you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Even with my sensitive skin, I’ve experienced no redness or burning whatsoever. I’m guessing you could probably use it everyday." —Cait

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

This couple-founded company is a great choice if you're looking to shop small! And BTW, you can get any of these products individually if you're not looking to start with an entire kit.

Promising review: "I love how environmentally friendly these products are! The razor is very sharp and it was a little tough to get used to at first. However, I really like it and it gets a clean shave. The shaving cream bar it comes with is very nice. It smells good and really sticks to your skin. It definitely helped with shaving. I am very happy with my purchase. This was a happy switch." —Rachel Stone

Get it from Eco Roots for $48.50.

This includes a seven ounce container of hard wax (that you can microwave, save, and reuse) and eight waxing sticks. You can get extra waxing sticks if you find yourself with excess wax after getting through the sticks provided.

Promising review: "As an African American female, I highly recommend this product. I was able to wax my face, underarm, and bikini area. All the hair was removed nicely, without leaving residual bumps. I love this product." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

Promising review: "I married a hairy beast. And he vowed on our sex life to keep his back hair-free for me. Fast forward nine years and the vow went out the door. Bored on Amazon I ordered this stuff and forgot all about it until it showed up. I never believed this would work. I did a test patch and after six minutes I wiped and it looked like baby skin. Probably because the hair is so thick his skin hasn’t ever seen the light of day. I slathered that stuff on the rest of his back so fast! Voila people! It’s freaking magic! I can’t believe my eyes! I’m going to have to start buying it in the gallons! Now, if you’ll excuse me...bow chicka wow wow!" —Addicted to Prime

Get it from Amazon for $8.01.

This zero waste, lanolin-infused soap is specifically designed for shaving faces, legs, and underarms. It has bentonite clay for a sudsy lather and essential oils that'll have you smelling chic. Each bar is approximately 4.5 oz and will easily last 6–12 months if kept dry.

Promising review: "This shave bar smells great and is good for any gender. It makes my skin feel super smooth and it’s pretty large, so I know it will last a while. I love it!" —Ila Kerchenski

Get it from Zero Waste Store for $11.

Promising review: "I bought this to help line up my neck hairs since they grow out really fast. I enjoy using this neckline template to help to line up the back of neck. The adjustable strap is good quality and I feel confident it will stay in place. I really love the material of the template because it is flexible yet sturdy. The edges are tapered down thin so it helps guide the buzzer when I’m shaving the back of my neck. I've saved so much money with one purchase. This is a DIY product everyone needs. Highly recommend." —Derik

This tiny tool has over 13,000 5-star reviews! Which is no surprise, considering it can remove nose, ear, and eyebrow hair while also cleaning up edges around beards. You can use this dry, but it's also waterproof, so feel free to use it in the shower if you prefer! It includes a protective cover for the clipper and a cleaning brush. It runs on one AA battery, not included.

Promising review: "I'm not sure why I waited so long to buy one of these. Maybe I was just a masochist and enjoyed plucking nose hairs with tweezers, but not anymore! This is such an improvement over an older trimmer I had that ripped at hairs randomly and without warning. This cuts hairs cleanly with no pain, and it is quiet! No worries about an internal battery that craps out on you rendering the trimmer useless, this uses one AA battery and is super easy to replace." —Jeff

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two styles).

Promising review: "I've been using these razors for years and they're amazing. They're so gentle that I can actually shave without shaving cream to no adverse effects! Plus, they're pretty inexpensive! I'd say I switch out razors about once a month, and they're hardly dull." —Kayleigh
