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.
Worked as pre-shave, but left my face sticky afterwards. Was generally disappointed.2
I've tried a bunch of pre-shave products and this works just as well as the others. However, I am not crazy about the scent.4
After using this pre-shave and then shaving my face felt great would definitely recommend5
This really works. My face is tough and hardened from years of shaving and having a huge manly beard. This product would be a lifesaver for younger dudes whose faces are still soft and sensitive. Alas, it was too late for me, though. Still, this product is real slick and not oily at all.4
I don't really understand this type of product. Frankly, it seems to make shaving twice as much work as it should be. I use Proraso and I LOVE it and it provides the cleanest, smoothest shave I've ever had. This product doesn't enhance it. As a side note it also smells like alcohol. Which can't be good for your face.2
I've tried plenty of pre-shave serums before but this tops them all! It's light and feels clean, while not gunking up my razor.5
I was introduced to this product through my monthly Birchbox. I love the way this feels on your skin and it does just what it says. It makes your skin very slick and is a perfect undercoat for your favorite shaving cream. Makes shaving a much easier job each morning. Will be purchasing through Birchbox.com. Thanks!5
When I opened the box and saw "slick water" I had no idea what it was. But after reading up on it and seeing how to use it, I really liked the effect. It makes shaving easy and your razor really does glide like Apolo Ohno.4
I liked the feel of it, really is slick but not oily.
Still, using Proraso and a safety blade, I get a pretty good shave without this. I can see how it may help some people though.
This really helped get rid of my razorburn and ingrown hairs that occur after shaving.5
