John Allan’s Slickwater Pre-Shave Solution

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.

BANG!

Tried the sample from my first BirchBox and WOW!!! I've been looking for something like this for a LONG time and now I've found it. It really "sticks" to your face and provides that "Slick as ice" feeling where your blade just glides across your face. It doen't take a lot either. A little goes a long way. I bought two bottles and plan on trying all of John Allan's products, especially the Cool Face Aftershave. GREAT Product, keep up the the good work!!!

Perfect

This is the best shaving product that I have come across. I have very sensitive skin and shaving always causes some irritation. This pre-shave really alleviates the pain I usually get after shaving.

Best pre-shave I've found
Purchased

I've been on the search for a good pre-shave oil since I bought my safety razor about 1.5 years ago. This is by far the best I've found. A little goes along way on your face and creates a slick surface to reduce friction. I still use a shaving cream on top of the product and have not tried shaving with Slick Water alone.

Just plain great!

I never really looked into have a pre-shave regiment, but now this stuff has changed all that! I cant imagine shaving without this stuff. It really made the shaving experience that much better!

Great add-on to shaving ritual

When shaving I often end up with irritated skin and bumps. After using this product I noticed a smooth shave with less irritation than usual. I only used a sample size and noticed a great improvement. The product works well with shaving cream and does not leave a messy residue.

Slick Water
Purchased

Wow, another great product. This line is just awesome. I am a fanatic shaver and use 2 types of pre-shave products, then brush on shave cream with my badger brush. I decided to try the sample of Slick Water and I'm hooked. I have switched to using Slick Water after 10 years using a different pre-shave. It makes the razor slide perfectly, keeps from getting nicks and cuts. and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. I highly recommend this pre-shave!

Better than pre-shave oil

I didn't think anything would top my pre-shave oil, and I've used quite a few, but this stuff is just plain awesome. It is super slick and smells great. Will definitely be replacing my oil with this in the future.

works great

Used this product with the Proraso shave cream, it seemed to work great. Although I don't know how necessary it is considering that shave cream is already pretty excellent. Sorta like a hat on a hat, but a really nice hat nonetheless.

Never Knew I Needed It

Never used a pre shave lotion before, but I'll be buying this from now on. Seems like such a frivolous luxury, but it really does make a difference in how my face feels.
