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.
Was looking for something that was not as oily as my previous pre shave. Found it!5
This is a great product. It adds a new level to shaving that regular creams don't achieve. Worked well with this months shaving cream.5
I like it! It feels good on the skin... my face felt smooth after using it along with my shaving routine. Would absolutely purchase full size if it wasn't quite so pricey.
Overall - great product!! Recommended.
I've tried many pre-shave lotions and think this is among the best. This lotion actually sticks to your face/beard and does a great job of lubricating the face. Other lotions are either oily or gel and don't really stick to the face, or work fast enough for me to be useful, This worked one second after applying and provided a slick surface to shave.4
Great stylish sock with the quality to match. Very functional.4
I enjoyed the close shaves I got using this product, but at $30 a bottle, it's very expensive. I have been moving more toward shaving with a safety razor and you really dont need this type of product for that.4
this stuff works but i'd highly recommend jack black beard lube, its more of an all in one as opposed to multiple steps with slick water then cream etc. it does work though, very well4
I normally shave in the shower after I'm done with everything else to make sure things are as pliable as possible and use shaving gel and a traditional razor to do the job. I did two tests with the sample I got of this product in my June box. First I used it at the normal time after the shower, secondly I used it right away as soon as I got in the shower. This product made a noticeable difference in both cases. Using it at the normal time after taking a shower, the razor glided over my face like silk. At the "cold shave" it felt like it normally does after a shower. I also really liked the tingling sensation that the tea tree oil imparts. The 0.25oz sample bottle is comical to look at, but this product appears to go a long way -- I expect to get 4 or 5 shaves out of the tiny bottle and will buy a full-size bottle when that runs out.5
As far as pre-shave oils go, this is one of the better products I've tried. It's not too heavy or "oily" and I don't feel like it keeps the razor from actually getting to my face. The scent is nearly non-existent, which I like. Overall I'd recommend it.4
It worked really well, but it's definitely not worth $30.3
