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.

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

Works but could be better

The pre-shave oils all have a "funny" smell to my nose and I normally use it when I am in a hurry and don't have time for a long hot shower to soften my whiskers. It works though and why I still use it until I can find an alternative.

Not a fan
Purchased

I read the reviews and bought this product, hoping for a better shave, but it seems to have made my skin worse and I did not get a closer shave. Will not be buying again.

An Excellent Multi Functioning Concentrated Bottle o' Bliss

Whether a daily shave or a beard, I've found this to be the most scentsational prep product ever! Firstly, its viscosity allows for the whole, "less is more" usage. On my freshly cleansed & exfoliated skin, beneath the steam of hot water, I apply a few fingerlings of this oil to my face, neck, sideburns, and rub the remaining on my nails and backs of my hands (hence Multi Functioning). I grab my hot, damp badger brush and lather up, right on top! The closest shaves of my life, even with a disposable cheapie. I like that it's more of a naturally based brand and the ingredients listed proves the point that less is best, more can be a chore, that a close shave is at its easiest and smoothest with a prep product, and with the whole entire TAOS collection being so concentrated, my bottle lasts me forever. The "scentsational" part is my skin's reaction to synthetic perfumes and this brand seems to only use essential oils which I find to be therapeutic to my skin. My wife even uses this stuff to shave, on her nails and the ends of her hair before she shampoos. Brilliant!
