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 have a relatively sensitive face and shave probably about 2-3 times a week. I often let a shadow grown in and then trim it before shaving so the hair is not too long for the razor. This product did an ok job lathering up the face and making it feel "slick" for the razor, however it's not the best sample I've received from Birch Box (that would be the Lucky Tiger hands down). It's also pretty darn expensive if you were to buy.3
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
Didnt notice a terrible amount of difference with this one. Could be user error or maybe im just not a details guy.1
I have a tough wiry beard, but I have sensitive skin so this have been an amazing product for me. I use a razor that has five blades, and at times it's still tough to shave and trim my beard without encountering razor burn. The blade glides beautifully, and leaves my skin so nice and soft, without burn! Totally getting a full size bottle.4
I have never used a pre-shave before and I am so glad I started with this. I have never had such a close shave and it all washed off so easily. Everyone should give it a try.4
This solution really softens for a close shave. It mixes with shaving gel lather well and isn't too oily.4
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
