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.
Tried the sample from my first BirchBox and WOW!!! I've been looking for something like this for a LONG time and now I've found it. It really "sticks" to your face and provides that "Slick as ice" feeling where your blade just glides across your face. It doen't take a lot either. A little goes a long way. I bought two bottles and plan on trying all of John Allan's products, especially the Cool Face Aftershave. GREAT Product, keep up the the good work!!!5
This is the best shaving product that I have come across. I have very sensitive skin and shaving always causes some irritation. This pre-shave really alleviates the pain I usually get after shaving.5
I've been on the search for a good pre-shave oil since I bought my safety razor about 1.5 years ago. This is by far the best I've found. A little goes along way on your face and creates a slick surface to reduce friction. I still use a shaving cream on top of the product and have not tried shaving with Slick Water alone.5
Using this product enhances the entire shaving process and shaving experience. While the results may not be noticeable, the pre-shave solutions makes my face feel fresh and clean before my shave each day.4
Found this to be similar to some non-lather shave gels. Lubricates the blade, but couldn't tell a big difference between using this and just using a gel.3
I have never had too much of an issue with razor burn so maybe I don't need this product as much as others do. It seems to help but I can't really tell much of a difference between this and shave cream alone.3
I never really looked into have a pre-shave regiment, but now this stuff has changed all that! I cant imagine shaving without this stuff. It really made the shaving experience that much better!5
When shaving I often end up with irritated skin and bumps. After using this product I noticed a smooth shave with less irritation than usual. I only used a sample size and noticed a great improvement. The product works well with shaving cream and does not leave a messy residue.5
Wow, another great product. This line is just awesome. I am a fanatic shaver and use 2 types of pre-shave products, then brush on shave cream with my badger brush. I decided to try the sample of Slick Water and I'm hooked. I have switched to using Slick Water after 10 years using a different pre-shave. It makes the razor slide perfectly, keeps from getting nicks and cuts. and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. I highly recommend this pre-shave!5
using this before my shave is great, and works even better when paired with its after shave of the same brand. not quite as smooth as other pre shave oils, but still works.4
