This preshave oil sets the standard for simple, no-frills skincare. To finish your shave the way you started, cap your routine with Schulz & Malley Soothing Aftershave.

Schulz & Malley

Birchbox Breakdown

Rich, botanical oils have been a skincare staple since the days of ancient Greece. Now, Schulz & Malley continues the tradition with their preshave oil, specially designed to prep your face for a close, luxurious shave. Its unscented formula softens scruff, stands up hairs, and moisturizes skin to head off postshave irritation. No additives, no nonsense, and no Achilles Heel: just easy, reliable skincare.

How it Works

Free of scents, harsh chemicals, and campy ostentation, this simple formula is like a fast-acting conditioner for both skin and scruff. Plant-based oils soften hairs for a closer shave, while soothing the skin beneath to prevent redness and razor burn.

How to Use

After cleansing, pour a small dollop of oil into your hand, then massage into damp skin. Layer your favorite shave cream on top—no rinsing required—and shave as usual.

A Pretty Good Shaving Assistant

Not long ago, when I started wet shaving for the first time, I had done quite a bit of research and found that many people use a pre-shave oil under the shave soap. Since I had this incredibly deep seated fear of the safety razor, overcome only by my intense desire to change my grooming habits, I was going to get every advantage I could. This was one of my preparation purchases.

I am honestly unsure how to rate a pre-shave oil product but I can tell you that it has a subtle pleasant scent and it does not take much to cover your face. When used in conjunction with the soap, I am getting extremely close and comfortable shaves with very minimal razor burn, even after two or more passes. In short, a very good shaving assistant.

I would be lying if I said that the old fashioned label played no role in my decision to purchase this product. In my mind, the only thing that would make this product better, would be a glass bottle for the complete old fashioned feel. I don't suppose oily hands and glass bottles over a sink would be a good idea, would it?

Yes, Schulz and Malley Men's Pre-Shave oil works well and I would recommend this to anyone.

Schulz & Malley - The only oil for me! (At least for now, anyway)
