Birchbox Breakdown

Your facial hair says a lot about you—so you don’t want to get complacent when it comes to trimming and shaping. This translucent oil softens up tough beard hair for an all-around smoother experience, even with electric razors. If you’re going for the fresh-faced look, the dual-purpose formula can also be used as a preshave treatment to reduce razor burn and ingrown hairs.

How to Use

Splash face with warm water, then massage a few drops of oil onto whiskers. Apply shaving cream on top, shave, and rinse—or skip the shaving cream and just shave and rinse.

I've been using this preshave oil for many years, and it's phenomenal. My skin is sensitive and I got razor burn every time I shaved. Once I started using this oil, combined with rinsing my blade under very hot water, getting razor burn became a thing of the past.

Fantastic and Understood

This is a fantastic product for a quick shave. The warming sensation stimulates the dermis (surface) and lubricates the shaving blade providing a clean, close shave. It works best under a cream or lather but works perfectly well on its own if your'e in a rush. Guys with sensitive, razor burn or break out prone skin, this is a MUST for you.

Not worth it

Wen first applied it is warm, but it is fleeting and I felt no softer than when I didn't use it.

Does not compare to Art of Shaving Oil

I gave this product a chance after using Art of Shaving oil, I figured this would be very similar, I was very wrong. I typically shave in the shower so my face is wet, I add liberal amount to my face, it does have a warming sensation however thats about the extent of the oil. While shaving I can not tell any difference with or without using this oil. I would not recommend this product.
