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.

This product creates a super slick surface for your razor to glide over. I love it.

Impressive.

I was impressed with the smoothness of my shave after using this product; especially, when I used it with the Suki exfoliating face wash. It left my face feeling much smoother than normal. Not a fan of the price but great product.

Best pre-shave lotion I've tried
Sampled

I've tried at least two other brands of Pre-Shave product (both of them were oils), and this is hands down the best. It isn't oily... its kind of hard to describe. Just a very slick, clean smelling substance. Provides a great shave.

Not too good
Sampled

I currently use The Art of Shaving pre-shave oil. I LOVE this oil I use. This may influence my opinion on this product, but this doesn't compare to the pre-shave oil I use. Perhaps it could be good with those with oily skin who are looking to avoid oils. Otherwise, this just isn't the best available product.

I was so surprised as to how well this actually worked. I had never gotten a closer cleaner shave than when i used this. It felt so smooth.

Meh

Not a big fan of the pre shave stuff. I do however use the art of shaving pre shave oil. I'm more satisfied with that product over this one.

Smells weird

Didn't love the scent of this product. Maybe I'll give it another go before I decide on tossing it or not.

I semi-enjoyed this product. Ill stick with my regular product though. Mine is a little cheaper and does the job just as well.
