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)
