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.
This stuff definitely is "slick." The point of a pre-shave is to lubricate the face and this stuff does that without being greasy.5
For someone like me who is prone to razor bumps and redness after a shave, this product is great. Nice tea tree oil smell and it actually does help! Wish the sample was bigger though.5
This does a great job of lathering up pre-shave. I tend to break out after using new products, but this caused no flare up, and gave a great, close shave.5
really helped cut down on the razor burn and bumps.5
...and I'm still thinking about how wonderfully this product worked. I'm a white dude that uses black men's shaving products because I have a terribly sensitive neck. This pre-shave completely reduced my problems dramatically, and while I continue to try other per-shaves, this has been, hands down, my favorite so far.5
Compared to the pre-shave oils from Art of Shaving & Toro, this one's a standout. Applies smooth without an oily consistency, and also lacks the intense scent the oils always seem to have. The shave is burn, bump, and nick-free, this stuff just works.5
What a wonderful shave I've had everytime after using this slick water. Makes the shave very smooth and precise and is a must try and buy.5
I've really enjoyed using this product. I've always had issues with post-shave razor burn, but with Slick Water, I finally have found a solution! On top of the effectiveness, it has a refreshing scent that is great in the mornings. Also, a little goes a long way, so you really get a great product at a great cost.5
this is by far the best of all the pre-shaves i have tried. even longer hairs come right off with no pain using this.5
I have tried many pre-shave solutions including one from The Art of Shaving. This is by far the best. I recommend using Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream afterwards.
However, none of this really matters if you aren't using a real shaving system (i.e. blades).
