An Excellent Multi Functioning Concentrated Bottle o' Bliss

Whether a daily shave or a beard, I've found this to be the most scentsational prep product ever! Firstly, its viscosity allows for the whole, "less is more" usage. On my freshly cleansed & exfoliated skin, beneath the steam of hot water, I apply a few fingerlings of this oil to my face, neck, sideburns, and rub the remaining on my nails and backs of my hands (hence Multi Functioning). I grab my hot, damp badger brush and lather up, right on top! The closest shaves of my life, even with a disposable cheapie. I like that it's more of a naturally based brand and the ingredients listed proves the point that less is best, more can be a chore, that a close shave is at its easiest and smoothest with a prep product, and with the whole entire TAOS collection being so concentrated, my bottle lasts me forever. The "scentsational" part is my skin's reaction to synthetic perfumes and this brand seems to only use essential oils which I find to be therapeutic to my skin. My wife even uses this stuff to shave, on her nails and the ends of her hair before she shampoos. Brilliant!

Fantastic Pre shave treatment
Purchased

Put a warm wet towel on your bread and press for 15 seconds or so, and then rub in the pre shave oil; no matter if its been 2 weeks since you shaved or a day, the oil will make your bread soft and make your skin feel great. I highly recommend and think it is an essential to a great shave.

Smells so good
Purchased

Started using the sandalwood preshave oil as part of my shaving regimen. I love the smell and has helped with razor burn and keeping my skin and stubble soft through out the day.

a little goes a long way

a great preshave. yes, its expensive but all you need is a dime size amount.. massage it in.. let it sit for a minute and then apply your shaving cream.. makes the shaving glides so much smoother

Keeps away the cuts
Purchased

I use this before I apply shaving cream - does a great job lubing the beard so you don't get caught and cut yourself.

I love this stuff!

I swear by Art of Shaving products. This is the best pre-shave oil I have ever used. I have been using it for over three years!

I also recommend purchasing the shaving cream and the after-shave balm.

Love this stuff
Purchased

This stuff works great for my shave. I've noticed a lot less irritation since I started using it. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't make me break out at all.

My favorite

I love this. Use it every time I shave! Definitely repurchasing when I run out of my sample. I checked out the other scents in person too- they're all great

Okay

This product was not very useful for me because I do not need to do anything to my face before shaving it. Smelled good and works though if you like to do that step.

Average product

I was not very impressed with this product. Overall I did not feel that it improved my shave. Additionally, I did not enjoy the smell of the product.
