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 like preshave oils and balms, and this stuff was great for my face. Simple to use under your shave soap (or cream), coats well without feeling gloppy or uneven.5
I have a tough beard and sometimes bleed while shaving. I've tried a couple of pre-shaves and had some wins, but this one succeeds for a reason.
I use proraso shaving gel along with this and a gilette proglide razor. The texture is like thick sugar syrup which is the reason why its so good. Unlike other pre-shaves that have an oily consistency and tend to drip before you've even hit your face this one forms a layer and stays there while you lather up. Must have. The sample is good for the travel kit too..
This is a great pre-shave tonic. It smells great and a little bit goes a long way. When paired with a premium shave soap and a fresh razor it will be hard to get a better shave.5
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
