- A pre-shave oil to prevent redness and irritation
- Scented with sandalwood
- Made in England
Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Pre-Shave Oil comes in an attractive 30mL bottle. The scent is distinctly sandalwood (woodsy and masculine) but by no means overbearing. The small quantity here really goes a long way, so you're getting value. It requires that you get your face wet and put a very small amount on the areas of your face that tend to take the most damage from your razor. Most people like to use it under the nose and on the chin, but everyone's different in this regard, so wherever you need it, that's where it goes.
When you're ready to start shaving, put on your cream or soap as you normally would over this product. This provides you with an extra layer of protection that can really help out with avoiding the most noticeable damage and irritation. As a tip, if you keep having trouble, check your razor. Merkur and other brands make high-end products that don't cost much and that can realistically last you a lifetime. Your skin will thank you and, because the blades for these models are so cheap, you can make sure you're always using one that's fresh and ready to go, which also helps a great deal with getting rid of rash and nicks.
