Do you have the time in your morning for pre-shave, shave, and post-shave lotions and such? No? Congratulations, you are like most guys who only have so much time in their morning to devote to clearing whiskers off their faces.
THAT SAID: You might want to take the time to apply this before getting that razor ready. It's a cool-mint base that smells and feels great, like you're really prepping and cleaning your face for a decent shave, without spending a ton of time.
My only caveat is to avoid pairing it with a facewash or shaving cream that's also heavily-scented (I tried this sample with another BB sample shaving cream with a similar smell/feel), or it might be a little too much of a good thing.
Also: The sample bottle's tiny red-lettered instructions are downright impossible to read, so just assume the directions are "apply to face, do not eat."
All About The Preshave!
If you don't have a pre-shave routine, you're not doing it right! Pre-shaving is important for a clean, smooth, close shave. Trim, scrub, and then shave. This product will also provide excellent post-shave conditions. Get on the pre-shave wagon, boys! You won't regret it!
Wow, you can really feel it!
This stuff will give your skin an almost unsettling "cooling" feeling. It's interesting, though, and I think results in a nice shave, since it seems to both prep the skin and exfoliate before. Worth a try for something different.
Nice n easy
I haven't gone completely hairless on my face in years. The only time I use a razor is to get my neck smooth and stubble free. I never use any type of pre-shave treatment before, and after using this, I'll never make that mistake again. My neck was always red and irritated after shaving. Probably because I don't use a fresh blade as often as I should. Even so, Game Day's pre-shave scrub made the process painless and left my neck the same color as the rest of my skin! bye bye red bumps~*
I love the scrub and will use it. The cleanser is effective and feels like it cleans well. packaging is nice, but a little too dark.
I used this product a few times before shaving. I have really sensitive skin but this product helped with the razor bumps I normally get. It leaves your skin with a really clean sensation.
The scrub was nice, refreshing scent to it, but I have other products that I currently use that are similar so it's hard to compare. I also keep a long beard year round so I don't use the presage scrub as much. Overall good product.
Such a great scrub
This product is pretty phenomenal! The menthol in this product produces a fantastic invigorating feeling and is a great way to start the day! Highly recommended.
This does help leave and provide smoother skin post shave. Also a very good skin feel after use---invigorating probably the best word to describe!
I feel the scrub is very effective, but something in the recipe burns for a while after use. I'd suggest toning down whatever mint is in it.
