Birchbox Breakdown

These days, preshave treatment is less a suggestion, and more a vital requisite. As proof, we offer this maritime gel. Made from the selfsame plant of the sea, its nourishing formula hydrates and softens even the most resilient scruff, prepping your face for a shave in a way no cream can. Moreover, as a gel, this preshave wonder won’t leave an oily residue: Just ultrasoft skin, and a freshly shorn face.

How to Use

After treating your face to a hot shower or a thorough splash from the sink, rub a small dab of gel into your palms and apply to damp skin. Add the usual layer of shaving lather on top, and you’re ready to let your razor glide.

Won't shave without this stuff

I absolutely love this product. I'm lucky in that I have a fair complexion and I only have to shave perhaps once a week, but when it's time to shave, it's time to shave. This pre-shave gel does an outstanding job softening my whiskers and moisturizing my skin before the razor touches it. I find that the more I use it, the less shaving irritation I have and, even though I don't usually have issues with "shaving bumps" (I get them sometimes), this product seems to reduce the frequency with which they occur. This gel has a very pleasing scent and doesn't feel greasy or oily. Don't take my word for it, though. Try it out and see for yourself.
