Okay Shave oil

This is a shave oil works well enough, however, I feel in comparison to other shave oils that I have used it has a very heavy and thick feel to it, this is slightly off putting and generally after shaving with this I will feel the need to wash my face with soap to remove some of the oil that has been left on my face. Also due to this thickness it makes cleaning my blade much more difficult then similar products.

A solid oil

Art of Shaving is a solid line of products - I like the smell of this and it helped my shaves go smoother in combination with shave cream. I'd buy again.

More Trouble Than it's Worth

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.

Great product!

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.

Oily feeling lasted all day

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.

Awesome product

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 Balm

Good Shave Everytime

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.

Fantastic Product!

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!
