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.

Eh.

It was alright I didn't really feel a difference in shaving. It smells good though. It's too bad though I really wanted this product to work for me.

Better than pre-shave oil

I didn't think anything would top my pre-shave oil, and I've used quite a few, but this stuff is just plain awesome. It is super slick and smells great. Will definitely be replacing my oil with this in the future.

works great
Sampled

Used this product with the Proraso shave cream, it seemed to work great. Although I don't know how necessary it is considering that shave cream is already pretty excellent. Sorta like a hat on a hat, but a really nice hat nonetheless.

Smells nice, but thats about it
Sampled

The product smells great, but I honestly couldn't tell any difference between using this with a shave cream, or just using a shave cream alone.

Not for sensitive types...
Sampled

My skin is extremely sensitive and the use of pre-shave oils and creams worries me. Compared to the products I've used in the past and this one I didn't see a benefit.

New Staple in my shave kit

I loved this from the start. Razor glides perfectly without the product being sticky or goopy. I have worked it into my routine already.

Wow - this was like putting a skating rink on my face with how easily the razor moved over my beard!

Never Knew I Needed It
Sampled

Never used a pre shave lotion before, but I'll be buying this from now on. Seems like such a frivolous luxury, but it really does make a difference in how my face feels.

Pre-Shave Love

This is the ULTIMATE pre-shave! a very little goes a very long way! Super slick and easy to spread out, does not leave a scent or a film after shaving. The best product for baby-soft facial skin!
