The Art of Shaving® Pre-Shave Oil

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.

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!

Great Product!!

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!
