Doesn't affect my shave
I assume it is a good lotion that is good for your skin. However, I think applying shave cream/soap on top of this basically washes it away. I don't notice a glide and do experience drag, even with a new blade. I've previously used a heavier oil, understand about sticking to blade and sink residue, but it was far more robust as actually smoothing out razor glide.
Slickens your beard right up.
If you're using a pre-shave oil to slicken your beard, you're likely moderately satisfied with the results and unhappy how it gunks up your razor. Try this out! Great product and it lasts months, even with daily use. Single pump does it. This is my second purchase.
I've used pre shave oil in the past and, while it worked well enough, I didn't like the way it leaves an oily residue on my blade and in the sink. I wanted to try a gel product and selected this based on the excellent reviews. It did seem a bit pricey, but now that I've tried it, I have to say it's worth every penny. Also, it's an 8oz bottle and you don't need to use a lot, so it's actually reasonably priced. I'm using this in conjunction with the Taylor of Old Bond Street shaving cream. I cannot imagine a better combo. My blade glides effortlessly. There is no drag whatsoever. Highly recommend!
Great product. Helps make shaving easier and less drag on your face with your razor. BUT, shipping of this product SUCKS. Took waaaaayyyyy too long to receive. Tracking the shipment was almost impossible. Was advised through e mail the product was coming from two different cities for some reason. Must improve on the shipping.
Was a bit hesitant when I saw the pricing. I decided to give this a try based on other positive reviews. I can say that after using this product for a couple weeks, I'm totally impressed. No need for me to check out other products anymore. This stuff is awesome!!!
