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.

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.

I wish I would get more stuff from the Art of Shaving. Their products are amazing and I would highly recommend them to others.

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!

Every Bit Helps, Added to the Regime

I've added the Lavender Pre-Shave Oil to my shaving routine and I couldn't be happier. I've seen a noticeable reduction in razor burn/bumps and for someone who's suffered from super sensitive skin my whole life, I'll take whatever improvement from a product that I can get. Smells fantastic and really creates a nice smooth glide for the razor.

Great product, does as advertised.

I don't know why I didn't look into this earlier. This has made shaving so much more comfortable. Applying this pre-shave oil has eliminated any irritation that I have experienced in the past. The razor moves across my skin much easier now than with the shaving cream alone. I also enjoyed the lavender scent. This is a must buy.
