Not only does it offer a closer and more comfortable shave, but it also provides a moment of relaxation and indulgence in an otherwise hectic day.

Benefits to using Pre-Shave Oil

Posted by Keenyn Bijou on

If you're like many men, you may have a routine when it comes to shaving – lather up with some shaving cream from the drug store, take a few strokes with your razor, and rinse off. While this may be sufficient for some, adding pre-shave oil to your routine can greatly enhance your shaving experience.

Pre-shave oil is a product that is applied to your skin before you apply shaving cream or gel. It is typically made from a combination of natural oils, such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, and castor oil, which are known for their moisturizing and skin-nourishing properties.

Here are just a few reasons why pre-shave oil is a great addition to your shaving routine:

  1. Softens your skin: Pre-shave oil helps to soften your skin, making it easier for your razor to glide smoothly. This can help to reduce irritation and razor burn, making for a more comfortable shaving experience.
  2. Protects your skin: In addition to softening your skin, pre-shave oil also helps form a protective barrier on your skin. This protects your skin from the razor, which can help to reduce irritation and nicks.
  3. Provides extra moisture: Shaving can be drying on your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. Pre-shave oil helps to provide an extra layer of moisture, which can help to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
  4. Helps to prevent ingrown hairs: Ingrown hairs are a common problem for many men, and they can be uncomfortable and unsightly. Pre-shave oil can help to prevent ingrown hairs by allowing your razor to glide smoothly over your skin, reducing the risk of hairs getting trapped underneath the surface.
  5. Smells great: Many pre-shave oils like ours have a pleasant, natural scent that can help to freshen up your shaving routine. This is especially beneficial if you're a man who likes to start his day with a fresh, clean scent that isn't bad for you.

Overall, our Pre-Shave Oil is a great addition to any man's shaving routine. It can help to make your shave more comfortable, protect your skin, and even prevent ingrown hairs. So if you want to take your shaving experience to the next level like your grandpa did, consider giving pre-shave oil a try. Your skin (and your razor) will thank you.
