Author: Stephen Crook What can I say another quality product that really works
Author: Richard Tuxford I bought this product for the first time having not previously used a pre-shave oil/lotion and based on the reviews.
However, whilst I think it added to providing a smooth shave, I wouldn't use it again because it smelt and felt like I was applying chip oil!!!
Author: Robin Hughes The first pre-shave oil I have ever used. It is easy to apply, protects the skin against nicks and cuts and provides a brilliant shave. I do not use this every shave as I like to alternate my method but when I do use it I am always impressed.
Author: Pierre-Yves Claudon A good pre-shave oil. Really protects the skin from burns and nicks. However, as every oil I've tested so far, it has a very oily (sic) consitency and let your face and your razor oily. You're good for a fashwash afterwards !
Author: Rob Grey I have never used a pre-shave oil before but I bought this when I bought my straight razor a few weeks ago and I am really pleased with it, I used it every shave and it really does help protect the skin and gives a great shave.
Author: Neil Jary Picked this up to add to my collection of straight razor shaving goodies!
Didn't know what to think about oiling my face up before a shave but it was really worth it!
The product smells nice, with an almost zesty citrus undertone.
Following guidelines its just a case of applying the oil sparingly to your beard before you apply the soap. You really only need a very small amount in the palm of your hands and away you go; probably about half a teaspoon, maybe less!
the product will last ages!
I did find that the first couple of times I used it the shaving crème I use didn't foam up quite as well as it did without the oil in place (real shaving co; and I wouldn't recommend it over anything you can buy here at The Shack!!) but if you apply a little bit more then it works fine. Im awaiting some bluebeards cream to test with that.
regardless; the oil really seemed to help the smoothness of the shave; the overall flow of the blade over the skin and helped a bit with shaving rash/redness as well.
great product all in all!
Author: KMerv Not that great. A normal moisturizer does a better job.
Author: Arwel Jones This is a brilliant product, i put this on after i have put my Proraso Pre and Post Shave Cream on and it works great.
Just a small amount required on your hand to rub together and apply to face, goes on easy and does not smell to bad. But the most important thing is this really helps me get that really smooth effortless shave. Leaves my face feeling moisturize after the shave, will be using this all the time in the future.
Author: Adam Cockerill First and only pre-shave oil I use, have not tried others because this one does a great job, have tried it with a few different shaving creams and soaps and it works well with all I've used so far. Like another user mentioned you will need a quick rinse before using any balms etc.
Author: Steve Sinclair Excellent pre-shave oil, great to use before lathering up on the luxury shaving cream. Cuts down on razor burn and always gives me a smooth close shave. I recommend it highly.
Author: Lee Willis This is the first pre-shave oil i've used. I decided to try it as I get a bit of razor burn on my neck. Using the pre-shave oil along with bluebeards shaving cream helps the razor glide so effortlessly, and reduced burn.
Author: Kevin Lear Great product,would definitely recommend this for newcomers to de shaving.I get no irritation when using this oil,but suffer some without it.
Author: Tom C I'm ashamed to say I was completely taken in by the marketing scheme for this, making me think this would be the solution for my thick beard.
Despite all the hype I guess my beard is just too thick!
I would also echo other reviews saying this stuff has the consistency of chip fat.
Cheap, nasty smelling, avoid.
Author: Adam Povey Being a paid up member of the Carl Sagan school of sceptics I'm always wary of claims made by various products as they rarely ring true. But after using various products in the Bluebeards range and having great results I though I'd give it ago and yet again I wasn't disappointed. I was getting a nasty patch of shaving rash and burn on my neck and no matter how careful I was it still occurred. I switched to derby blades which made and improvement and a few days later started using this oil and the rash/burn has gone. This is a great product and a little goes along way. The smell is great and it's quite thick so it doesn't goes everywhere. It also leaves the skin feeling moisturised. to be honest I haven't experienced any problems with this and can't understand why others have. This oil is now a must have before any shave for me and I'll carry on using it.
Author: James Lewis Have tried this before shaving and without. This quality of the same was vastly better with this oil. The razor glided over my chops like a swan on a lake. Awesome. Can't recommend this highly enough. ESSENTIAL for your shaving kit. I won't be without this!
Author: Alan Hughes always use this oil if I leave my beard un-shaved for a couple of days, makes a huge difference! adds to the pleasure of shaving too. Helps avoid rash and burn also, i'd recommend
Author: Aidan Yeomans Top pre shave oil, used this as I was prone to bad rash, sorted it right out and the razor just glides, it's a great buy.
Author: Tobias Robinson Only pre shave product I've used but compared to water alone I can clearly say that I shan't be going without again.
product is easy to handle and smells great, being absorbed quickly and easily.
My only concern is the effectiveness of this on a longer growth since it has a thin consistency
