TORO Shave Oil

From bike chains to body builders, most things perform better when they’re well oiled—so it’s no surprise that razors perform better on slick skin. Unlike traditional shaving foam, this slippery oil won’t hang up your blade and its all-natural ingredients will soften your beard hairs without drying your skin out.

It was ok

Although it was a smooth shave and had a nice fragrance this product did not mix well with my skin type. It left my face overly greasy.

Sure, it smells nice
Sampled

It's got a great kick in the nose from the essential oils, but leaves something to be desired on the face. It's somewhat tacky, even applied over wet skin.

More annoying, the combination of oils act to numb the skin. You could be shaving terribly (or with a bad razor) and not feel it until a few minutes after you rinse this off.

Sometimes a bracing shave oil is the right thing for that morning. This could work, but there are drugstore alternatives I've liked better.

Soft skin and great smell
Purchased

The only downside to this product is that there might be too much tug when shaving compared to more standard shave creams. The big upside is that the essential oils are very cooling to the skin and smell great.

My Husband Loves It
Purchased

My husband rarely asks for anything cosmetic, he isn't picky. I asked him if he wanted any of the items he had received on Birchbox and this immediately came to mind. His skin looks and smells great!

Better then Shaving cream
Purchased

I like how you can feel the menthol on your skin and you can tell it makes your hair stand up. You get a nice smooth close shave and now I see what the rage is about when it comes to oils vs creams.

Give up the foamy shave creams

Why store a huge can of the foamy stuff in your medicine cabinet or gym bag? This tiny little vial of oil gives a great shave. Best used on one to two days' growth of beard; if the hairs get longer the oil isn't as effective. This smells strongly of eucalyptus/menthol/tea tree, so if you like that medicinal aroma you'll like it. Not my favorite, though; that's why I knocked off a star.

Closest Shave Since I was a teenager

This was my first time using "shaving oil" and I was skeptical. Turns out, I got the closest shave I have had in years. Very impressive and no oily residue. Great for a sensitive neck.

not bad

I agree with another reviewer that the oil seems to work best when you have shorter stubble. I definitely enjoy the menthol feeling

Left skin nice and cool.
Sampled

Got it in my December Box. Really liked it. I don't shave everyday, so I think it would work better if I had a little less stubble to fight through. Left my skin feeling nice and cool. When it runs out, I plan to buy more. TIP- Make sure to wet face first, and then apply. Three pumps for me.
