Using shave oil is a great way to help prevent razor burn and pesky bumps.

TORO

Birchbox Breakdown

From bike chains to body builders, most things perform better when they’re well oiled—so it’s no surprise that razors perform better on slick skin. Unlike traditional shaving foam, this slippery oil won’t hang up your blade and its all-natural ingredients will soften your beard hairs without drying your skin out.

How it Works

Upon application, a bull run of essential oils (including olive, eucalyptus, and Australian tea tree) charge at whiskers, propping hairs up for easy shearing. As menthol provides a soothing cool to the shaving area, Vitamins C and E refresh and revitalize skin.

How to Use

Wet face with warm water and massage one to two pumps of shave oil into beard. Wait a moment, allowing the oil to sink into the skin and condition whiskers, then shave normally, making sure to keep the blade wet with warm water as you go. When finished, rinse face with cold water.

Smooth shave!

My husband was very glad I bought him this shave oil. The fragrance is nice. He always had dry skin and this product left his skin nice and moisturized.

Soft skin and great smell

The only downside to this product is that there might be too much tug when shaving compared to more standard shave creams. The big upside is that the essential oils are very cooling to the skin and smell great.

Perfect Shave Every Time

I was skeptical at first about using just an oil to shave my face but I couldn't be happier with the results. I have tried a combination of shaving solutions including 7 different creams, balms, or oils that have been sent to me by Birchbox and various other products from the supermarket. Toro shave oil is the only product that gives me the same results every time. The oil creates a smooth protective layer on the skin allowing for a close, irritation free shave. I never have any cuts or razor burn with this product. This stuff also smells great. My only complaint is that the oil is sticky and cut hairs and oil can be tough to rinse off when finished shaving.

Not too oily

Toro has a great scent, is not too oily and preps whiskers nicely for a refreshingly smooth shave. I use it daily and highly recommend.

Great stuff

Go easy on the amount you use. If you're clogging up your blade, you're using too much. It's best on light stubble. If you need to plow through a few days worth of hair I'd use a cream instead.

That being said, I really like it! Makes your face feel very cool after shaving.

Great Shave Oil

This was the first time I used just oil for shaving. I was very pleased with this product and may purchase this again when I run out. It cools the skin when you apply it and helps the blade run across the skin smoothly as you shave. It also has a great smell. The small size is great for traveling.

Excellent value, great product and wonderful results

For such a small bottle, the product will last for months. I've become a convert tin regards to shave oils and Toro has been the best that I've found so far. It has a refreshing smell and there's a noticeable difference in the smoothness of the shave. Will definitely purchase again.

Super shave

I have oily skin and a heavy beard, so I have always been hesitant to use a shave oil with fear of a nasty break out. The Toro oil was GREAT! It had a great tingle on my skin and gave me a good shave without irritating my skin. There were no in growns or nicks, hello!! The travel size sample was perfect, but it did spill in my travel bag... : /
