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.

Ditch the shaving cream!!

Wow! From the moment I applied Slickwater I instantly knew I probably would use cream anymore. Although it is a pre-shave, I felt it was perfect to shave once applied. Top honors on closeness it allows you to shave with. Thumbs up

Can tell a difference
Sampled

This is a pleasant surprise. It doesn't completely prevent the razor from pulling the hair, but it certainly helps somewhat.

Good Stuff

Received a sample and have tried it on 2-3 shaves. Haven't noticed any real difference, but certainly doesn't hurt. Have noticed that my Razor glides easier over my face now. Give it a try!

This stuff works pretty well. The sample size in the Box was a bit skimpy, but it still seemed effective.

Same as others

This product was okay. It seemed to do the same as other products in the past. It did work well with an electric razor.

BEST Pre-Shave on the market
Sampled

I cannot say enough good things about this pre-shave "oil", I'd say it more like magic water sent here to give you a manly close shave. It smells amazing, is super slick, isn't oily, prolongs the life of my razor (double edge), and drives the ladies wild! By far one of the best quality products I have ever touched.

One of the better out there
Sampled

I have tried many pre-shave products, mostly pre-shave oils so this is a different texture. Quite nice. However, I am happy with my current brand, which though similarly priced has a more pleasing scent and luxurious packaging.

Eh

I did not notice any real difference between this and any other pre-shave oil that i've used in the past. It worked ok, but nothing special.
