Pre Shave Oil

I've never used any pre shave oil before. I this pre shave oil and was amazed at how it made me feel while shaving. I didn't feel any tugging on my face as the blades passed over. it was almost as if I wasn't shaving any hair at all. I would recommend to all of my friends.

Very good product

This oil actually has the consistency of what you would expect an oil to have and it leaves your skin extremely smooth. Highly recomended.

Really like this

I have been using this for about a week and have not cut myself nor have had any irritation. I apply it then let it work while I lather up my hair and then shave. Feels good and smells good too.

Great product!

I received this in my first box and have nothing but good things to say about it. I've been wetshaving for a while now, but never felt like dropping the money on shave oil as I thought I was already getting a good shave. This made shaving even more comfortable. I recommend this to anyone that shaves, especially on a daily basis.

Not bad

It helped get a close shave. My sons got it and liked it and would recommend it. I would recommend it to other friends to use. I'm a shave fanatic and it helped.

Stuff really does help...

The pre-shave oil really does add a little something to my routine. Manly smell with a practical use that I would have not known about if it were not for brichbox.. Thanks!

Great product, great scent.

I received a sample of this product in the Lavender scent, and was immediately impressed when I first used it. AoS is a hit or a miss with their products, for me at least, but this one is definitely worth purchasing. It's definitely an oil, but doesn't leave your face feeling greasy after you shave - in fact, it adds a nice amount of moisture, protection, and soothing qualities with the lavender oil, and makes the entire experience of your daily shave a lot more pleasant.

Not Really For Me

It's not bad, but I keep a beard so I kinda felt like it was wasted on me. I can see the appeal for guys that shave their entire faces though. I don't know that I got a better shave with this, but I certainly didn't get a worse one which I suppose is something.

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.
