Pre-Shave

Some would argue that conditioning your whiskers prior to shaving is the only way to ensure an easy, comfortable shave. For those of you who abide by those principles, we carry a wide variety of pre-shave products to prepare your skin for its next encounter with a sharp blade and to soften up that bristly beard.

To reduce irritation, these products do two things; 1) soften the hair to make it easier to cut and 2) provide extra lubrication to protect the skin. Correct prep is especially useful for those with sensitive skin and thick or wiry facial hair. We offer pre-shave lotions, oils, creams, soaps, and gels for every beard type. You name it, we probably carry it! And if we don't, ask us and we'll see if we can get it in the store.

Prep Cream, jar I used PREP several years ago, for shaving, skin irritations, sweat-galling, etcetera. It's fantastic on ALL counts! I'm so glad that I've been able to find it again! After waiting several weeks/months, PREP was finally available from WCS again!

Thank you, WCS!

Musgo Real Glyce Classic Scent Oil Soap This is a wonderful soap. As suggested I used it prior to applying shave cream. I experienced a nice close shave. A little goes a long ways.

Proraso Set, Menthol and Eucalyptus After using the sampler pack that came with the kit I bought from here, I decided to do some reading on which were good soaps and creams to try. Almost hands down everyone said Proraso green was a great starter and they were right! The menthol and eucalyptus is not over powering and after application, it fades about a half-hour later. My wife loves the smell and she does not care for strong scents. I use the pre/post shave cream just after I shower and after I am done shaving, I think it has made a difference in prepping my face for a shave, but that is just me. The cream is excellent, a little does go a long way! So there is no need to squeeze a lot out, just make sure to add enough water. The splash is refreshing and does disinfect your face. It is not over powering either. This is a great starter for beginners. I will be a life-long Proraso user.

Prep Cream, tube Now that I'm into 'wet' shaving with DE blades, I noticed I was stockpiling an enormous quantity of "shaving gear." I'm going on vacation in July, and wanted a tube of SOMETHING that I could use as both a PRE-shave, and a AFTER-shave balm. This stuff fills the bill...and you can use it on sunburns, too! (Except--like a vampire--I hate being out in the sun!!) I have other AFTER shave balms that I like better--when I'm at home--but for a week on the road, this one tube saves space in my bag!
