Many shaving aids foam and froth dramatically, but that doesn’t mean they’re offering your face protection through a shave. Prepping your face with a quality pre-shaving formula—one that sits directly against the skin—will ensure you’re safe from nicks, bumps, and irritation. True to its name, John Allan’s pre-shave solution creates a super slick and super protective primer coat, over which you can apply your usual shaving solution. Think of it like the Zamboni that smoothes and cools the shaving surface, allowing your razor to glide like Apolo Ohno.
This product does an acceptable job of providing protection during shaving, but I really dislike how it smells. Also, if you go for a second pass while shaving, this doesn't provide much protection the second time around.2
Shaving without this won't be the same. It's a little pricier than I'd like, but definitely worth it. Smoothest shaves ever, all do to the slick water.5
Because I love to try new products, I keep sampling other brands, but I keep going back to Slickwater. It's a cut above the pre-shave oils--provides a protective coating, of sorts, over the beard but rinses right off. The best I've found so far.5
I use this product every time I shave after first receiving a sample. When the sample ran out I quickly bought a replacement from the BirchBox store. It feels and smells great after applying/rinsing off after shaving. I have seen a drastic decrease in razor burn and my razor last much longer than before. Just a little bit goes a long way and then apply your usual shaving cream over top. I will definitely keep using this as a part of my shave routine.4
good product but kinda ridiculous how much it is for the amount they give you. I would use it if it werent so expensive. definitely a good pre-shave product though3
This stuff gives me a terrific, nick- and burn-free shave every time. It's so good that I don't even need to use shaving cream with it anymore.5
This product was AMAZING at first. A little goes a long way. So long, that the bottle lasted a very long time. The only problem was that towards the end, the consistency seemed to change. Does it expire? I don't know. All I know is the last shave was not as good as the first and I used the same shaving cream and always fresh blades.3
Great product for safety razor shaving or multi-blade. Has a nice herbal scent when you apply it. Makes the shave very smooth and conditions your stubble/beard. The scent does not linger in a bad way after shaving. John Allen makes very quality products, I also have the Cool Face aftershave, great product too.5
This is a great product. Only a little is needed so the total cost over time is quite small. But the benefit when shaving is very large. The quality of the shave, the comfort during and the feeling on my skin after have improved the whole morning routine. Great for manscaping. too.5
I tend to get a lot of razor burn and skin irritation when shaving often for work. I never found a product that really solved most of my issues shaving until this stuff. Makes shaving less awful. My only complaint would be the price for the 2 oz bottle.4
