Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Rub a small amount of oil on your palms, and then work it in to your beard. Do not rinse it off. Next, layer your shaving cream or soap on top of the oil, and shave as usual.

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.

The search is over!

My husband has been searching for a descent pre-shave oil for awhile. After Trying so many products, he has been happy with this. It allows for a smooth shave and skin without a greasy feeling. A little goes a long way. He plans to stick with this product.

Tried others, back to the best!
Purchased

I am always willing to try new brands (hence my Birchbox membership). I enjoy exploring the wide range of shaving products that are out there. I have tried some that are okay, some good...but very few that I would go back to again and again. The Art of Shaving pre-shave oil is the best I have tried to date. I have found some that are close, but not quite good enough to get me to switch brands long term. Great product!

The Very Best in Shaving Oil!
Purchased

After having tried more than a few shaving oils, I had just about written off trying to find a shaving oil that either wasn't too thick or was too thin to be ineffective. Then enter this product! I was very pleased in the consistency and thickness of this product - it's perfect! Goes on clean, spreads well and really helps get a smooth, comfortable shave every time. But I think what I really love about this product is the scent (Sandalwood). It's a masculine scent that stays subtly on the skin even after shaving and rinsing, but it certainly isn't overpowering or lingering.

This isn't just for Men!

I bought this for my husband and I ended up using the Lavender pre-shave oil myself because it smells lovely and it prepares the skin and I no longer had razor burn.

Great Oil

I received this as a gift and love it pre shave oil is a must. No More Razor Burn soothes the skin and helps for a nice close shave.

Goes on smooth

Ever since I've used the pre shave oil I haven't had any Knicks on my bald head or face. This is a must have for my pre shave routine. I shave in the shower (use a mirror) 1. Put on the pre shave oil before getting in the shower (no need to wet head) 2. Put on shaving cream with badger brush (wet the brush before hand). 3. Shave clean. And my head hasn't looked this good in a long time.

Great Pre-shave oil
Purchased

I've always had skin irritation when shaving. But once I discovered this pre-shave oil it has gone away. It also smells great and mixes with any shaving cream or aftershave without the smells getting to strong.

They have a store close to my house. Yes, shaving my head is way easier than it used to be, and its a little pricey, but so worth it
