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.

Love This!

This is one of those products you don't know you need until you try it. It makes shaving so much more efficient and comfortable, especially if you have sensitive skin. I absolutely love this stuff.

I n order to get a good basis for the quality of this item you need to give us a larger sample that we can use for 3 to 4 days to gauge how it will work on our skin. This is a VERY small sample.

But doesn't fit into my schedule. Maybe for date night or something.

I am always in a rush so another step is just too much. Nice product though.

Couldn't really tell that much of a difference when used with the eshu shave gel.

This product is a pre shave gel, however when I used it I noticed no difference in the up and down strokes. The place I did see a difference was around my jaw, when I was rounding the curve. I usually have alot of tugging, and this product cut that down to almost none. That being said, I can get a similar result simply by slowing down to an extremely slow rate of shaving around the jaw line, and while that is annoying, it does save alot of money compared to using this product.

Best Pre-Shave routine

This is one of the best pre-shave lotions on the market right now, it's like teflon for the face, razors glide so smoothly
