Many shaving aids foam and froth dramatically, but that doesn’t mean they’re offering your face protection through a shave. Prepping your face with a quality pre-shaving formula—one that sits directly against the skin—will ensure you’re safe from nicks, bumps, and irritation. True to its name, John Allan’s pre-shave solution creates a super slick and super protective primer coat, over which you can apply your usual shaving solution. Think of it like the Zamboni that smoothes and cools the shaving surface, allowing your razor to glide like Apolo Ohno.
i just dont see the use of this. i use a shave cream and it works just fine with out this stuff
It's good at what it does, I never really use these types of products though..
I don't always shave, but when I do, I use a straight razor. A good lather will always keep me smooth enough to get a close shave. This stuff might work for a mamby, pamby Gillette, but I don't need the extra step.
Didnt notice a terrible amount of difference with this one. Could be user error or maybe im just not a details guy.
not happy i got this in my box; it will sit in the back of my cabinet since i shave with an electric
This seems like too much work to use a primer and then shaving cream.
I shave daily for my job and this is one of my least favorite products. The scent and texture were off putting then didn't work as well as my favorites by far. Won't buy
The product smells great, but I honestly couldn't tell any difference between using this with a shave cream, or just using a shave cream alone.
I've tried this on a few shaves. It felt good going on but I didn't notice and difference during my shave. I use a shave brush and either a bar of shave soap or the Proraso shaving cream. I think using those in tandem does more than the pre-shave lotion.
Worked as pre-shave, but left my face sticky afterwards. Was generally disappointed.
