Talk to any seasoned painter, and they’ll tell you that painting a room is 90 percent preparation. The Art of Shaving® feels the same way about removing scruff from your face. In the same way that you’d prime your walls, you’ve got to make sure your shaving surface is prepped for a smooth razor glide. That’s where this slick pre-shave oil comes in—it softens and moisturizes skin and beard for an irritation-free shave.
I just can't recommend this product. The pre-shave oil causes whiskers to clump between the blades on my razor, requiring a rinse under the faucet after every stroke. I didn't notice any benefit with regards to irritation, and it left a greasy feel on my face for a couple hours after shaving. That said, even though the unscented oil is "unscented," it smells fantastic. It has a masculine but subtle fragrance similar to an old-fashioned barber shop - I love it! That saves it from being a total disaster.2
This stuff really makes a difference and smells great. The trick is to rub it on and leave it for at least 60 seconds before adding shaving cream. I shave with a straight razor and the blade slides more smoothly when I start with this stuff. I highly recommend it.5
I'm not sure if I used too much of the pre-shave oil but I felt like my face was oily for the rest of the day after using this. I don't have that much beard to shave off and used it on 2 day stubble but I really didn't like the oily feeling that remained on my face for the day.2
Works great, especially for electric shavers. Leaves me with a clean, closer feeling shave. I highly recommend this product, especially in combination with the Art of Shaving Balm5
i have sensitive skin and this product makes my shave so much easier/better. no more razor bumps and redness! it was a gift from my gf but i will definitely be buying this again.5
Using this pre-shave oil is the only way I've found to guarantee a close shave without any cuts. I always try to keep some on hand.5
I wish I would get more stuff from the Art of Shaving. Their products are amazing and I would highly recommend them to others.5
This stuff makes my shave way smoother and before I got this in my box I was always quite hesitant to shave, fearing how the blade might be too rough. This stuff does the trick!4
I always have an issue with bleeding after shaving (tiny nicks that can't be seen but do bleed). I have tried several things that have minimized this: I only use Schick razors (quattro and hydro 5...haven't decided which I like more), I use Noxzema cream on my face prior to shaving, always shave after a shower, have tried several creams, and yet I could never get my issue to subside completely until I tried this pre-shave product. I will never shave again without it!5
Absolutely love this pre-shave oil. thank you birchbox man! i waited a few days to shave. i dont typically get much facial hair, but when i do i will definitely use this product!4
