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.

Products 1-12 of 59

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.

Pre-Shave Reviews
Works as advertised. Great smell
Taylor of Old Bond Street Pre-shave Oil "Works as advertised. Great smell and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. Would buy again
Proraso green set
Proraso Set, Menthol and Eucalyptus "I love this set. The green is so far the only one I've tried and it's wonderful. Love the scent and the menthol kick. The aftershave splash really stands out, its truly awesome.
Great smelling pre-shave
Baxter of California Shave Tonic "Spray it on a hot, damp towel and place on your face and massage it in. Helps provide a smooth shave with a relaxing mint aroma.
Very good preshave oil
Imperial Barber Products Pre-shave oil "I have used the Art of Shaving so the Imperial is a nice change. It is much less viscous and you only need a small amount. It comes in a dropper bottle. I employ it mostly in the tough areas around the mouth and chin. It can certainly help with razor glide. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try or currently using a simi product. No real negative though it could come in a bigger size. wish it came in a bigger bottle.
Proraso works the best for me
Proraso Pre & Post Cream, Menthol & Eucalyptus, 100ml "I use the Proraso pre-shave cream before every shave and have to apply it quite liberally, as I have very sensitive skin but a tough beard. I have to re-wet, re-lather, and re-shave a number of times, especially on my short neck and beside my mouth around the chin. Because of Proraso and more experience using my double-edged razor, I have dramatically reduced cuts. But I have to use a good bit of it and rub it in thoroughly to make sure I can re-wet, re-lather, and re-shave. For me, it provides better protection than the oils.
Taconic Organic Pre-Shave Oil
Taconic Organic Pre-Shave Oil, Unscented "Nice, While unscented it does have a slight pleasant odor, and does not negativley impact lather.
Best Cooling Tonic Ever
Baxter of California Shave Tonic "Smells great, very cooling, and very solid packaging.
Love This Product
Taylor of Old Bond Street Pre-shave Oil "This pre-shave old by Taylor of Old Bond Street not only smells fantastic, it really prepares me for a smoother and more pleasant shave. This is my second bottle -- my first bottle was a gift from my daughter and I liked it so much I bought another bottle when the first one was empty.
