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.
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.4
This is my favorite pre-shave oils. Gives you a cooling feel, smooths you skin and reduces razor burn and bumps5
I have always had a problem with razor bumps after shaving against the grain. I have very coarse facial hair and its always been painful. I tried this product and a new world has been opened to me. I can shave against the grain and feel perfectly pain free. It also smooths and conditions my skin leaving it feeling better than before I shaved. This is now a much have in my grooming kit.5
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.4
Best product I've learned about from birchbox. It wasn't part of a birchbox, but saw it on one of the monthly videos. Love the smell. Love the texture. And love the way it feels on my skin. I have used it as either a preshave oil or shave oil without cream and it works great both ways. Better than products I've tried from Art of Shaving or Kiehls. Thanks birchbox for introducing me to this great product.5
My face smells like Vicks after application. It does a good job of coating my face and stays until I am done shaving. If I have grown my beard out for sometime, I do need to revert to a thicker cream, but this works great for daily use.5
I agree with another reviewer that the oil seems to work best when you have shorter stubble. I definitely enjoy the menthol feeling4
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.2
I have a very thick beard and have tried almost everything on the market, including shave creams, gels, pre-shave oils, oils, you name it. This is now my favorite shaving product. I used to, and still do, swear by Cremo shave cream (the price can't be beat). This seems to work a little bit better than that.
And, on the plus side, it is airplane travel compliant in the size container that it is sold.
Really great product. You need three to four pumps for the face and neck not two. I threw all my shaving cream away!5
