Not for me

The product left my whiskers feeling softer, and probably better prepared for the shave. Personally, I am not a huge fan of rubbing oil on my face, however, so I will probably not be purchasing again.

Great product

Was thrilled to get AoS preshave oil in my first box. I have been using this stuff for years and love. This is the first scented oil that I have used and like it quite a bit.

My Husband's face is softer than mine
Purchased

This is amazing. I am even considering buying it for myself.I have never felt my husbands face so smooth. He loves it and no longer gets any ingrown hairs or razor burn

Shaving oil

This gave a closer shave and left the face soft to the touch. An added touch of moisture is always a bonus.

Surprisingly good

I'm usually a pretty basic shaver. Shave cream and a razor with some aftershave. But when I received this sample, I decided to give it a shot, and wow, it sure did make the whole shaving experience a lot more pleasant. This is something I will definitely purchase for myself.

Oil softens coarse skin for amazing shave!
Purchased

I've wasted plenty of money on shave products that were suppose to help get rid of nicks and cuts that have come standard with my shaves. I've tried different razors and pre-shave gels. This Pre-Shave Oil is amazing and much different than anything I've ever used before. I will be buying this product and highly recommend to all reading this review!

Product works great
Purchased

I have very thick facial hair and it is sometimes very heard to shave, even with a new blade. This pre shave oil is fantastic and leaves your face with a great feeling afterward.

Skeptical of AoS, but overall a good product

I don't trust AoS because it's owned by Gillette, but this was a pleasant surprise. The oil really does help with my shave, and it's as good as, maybe better than, the Anthony Brands preshave oil I'd been using before. When the sample that came with my Birchbox runs out I may actually buy a whole bottle and save the Anthony Brands stuff for later.

1st time preshave oil user...life changing!

This product does everything it supposed to. Softens skin and creates that barrier between skin and razor blade. The gliding of the blade is actually smoother, and so is the condition of my skin afterwards! Great product and will continue using.

Skeptical, but my shave improved

I use a safety razor with mug and brush. I was pretty happy with my routine shave and really didn't see the need to add pre-shave oil. Tried the sample this morning and was quite surprised.
The oil seems to separate the lather from skin, creating a very smooth drag. No breakouts. No razor burn (amazingly). Definitely going to buy another bottle after the sample is empty.
