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.

Didn't notice a difference
Sampled

I've tried this on a few shaves. It felt good going on but I didn't notice and difference during my shave. I use a shave brush and either a bar of shave soap or the Proraso shaving cream. I think using those in tandem does more than the pre-shave lotion.

Effective

Effective pre-shave solution. Razor glides more smoothly along the face but it also collects more gunk.

Worth it!

Reality: Sometimes you just have to pony up the big bucks, for big results.
Slick Water is one of those products. Clean, smooth shave just doesn't describe the experience.
Try it! You'll like it!

Not for me...
Sampled

Although I have sensitive skin, I'm not a huge fan of pre-shave oils. This product worked as well as other products I've tried in the past. I'm just not much on oiling up before shaving. Instead, I prefer to shave while taking a hot shower.

Prepare for a Close Shave

Good pre-shave solution and smells awesome! This applies in a thicker layer and adds a nice protective barrier.
