Pre-Shave Oil

Pre-shave Oil might be the most underrated and effective tool for targeting razor burn, irritation, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs.  By applying a small amount underneath your cream or soap, you help boost the lubrication of your creme, soften your whiskers, and moisturize the skin before you irritate it. Especially effective if you are dealing with irritation underneath the jawline. 

Composed of simple, effective all-natural ingredients, this might be your best bang for the buck to getting a better shave without really changing anything. 

Our products are scented simply, so you really immerse yourself into your favourite smells.  Strong enough for you to enjoy during your shave, but subtle enough that it won't follow you around all day or interfere with your cologne.  

Handmade in Edmonton, Alberta in small batches to ensure the highest quality and freshest ingredients.

Cedar:  Fresh, clean, and crisp base note, like you just walked into the lumber store.

Eucalyptus:  Crisp clean top note reminiscent of the sauna or Vic's vapour rub.

Lavender:  The manliest lavender you will ever smell.  Spicy, woody and less floral.

Lime: The most popular comment is "OMG this smells just like a margarita".  It's amazing.

Sandalwood:  Classic, almost cologne like. A staple for men for generations.

Spearmint: Fresh, clean, and sweet.  A favourite if you like lime or eucalyptus.


Directions for best use: Work a dime to quarter-sized amount between your hands and into your neck and face.  lather up and shave as usual.  If you have more resilient skin, try skipping the creme and shave with just the oil.  Tips for dispensing:  cover and invert 2-3 times to get small 'dollops' or drag back and forth while slowly tipping to pour a fine line into your hand.

Ingredients: Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Essential Oil/Fragrance*

NOTE: fragrance is used on our Sandalwood scent for the Pre-shave due to sustainability concerns.  Our fragrance oils are phthalate and paraben-free and are scented at a more subtle strength to ensure even scent sensitive and sensitive skin won't have any issues.

Size: 30ml/1oz glass bottle.

Shelf Life: Approx 12-18 months

Lasts approximately 30-60 shaves depending on humidity and skin requirements

A Must Have for sensitive skinned shavers

I tapped into my Fathers Day Mystery Box this morning and decided to give the Lime Pre Shave oil a try. Up until this point I had never tried such an oil.
It worked amazingly and basically turned my routine into a two-pass shave. I always seem to irritate the skin on my neck and a get few weepers every shave. Not today. This oil is going to change that from here on in.
Thanks again Ken and Keenyn for your great products.

Solid preshave oil

I've used preshave oil quite a bit over the years, but I love how simple and clean this product is compared to others. Minimal and quality ingredients help keep my skin smooth while shaving. Makes a big difference with razor burn as well. Tried the Cedar and look forward to trying other scents here soon.

Best Product In My Kit!!!

Like Grandpa's 'PRE-SHAVE OIL' has changed the way I shave...
Although a full wet shave sure can be nice(and the pr-shave makes it even nicer) ... I love using 'Like Grandpa's' Pre-Shave Oil along with their Safety Razor and After-Shave Balm resulting in a great shave on a short timeframe.
On top of great products... Ken & Keenyn are such great people, always ready to answer all my questions, and always ready to say hello whenever I see them!!!
I highly recommend any of the 'Like Grandpa' products, but especially the Pre-Shave Oil.

A product you never knew you needed!

I had no idea what a Pre-Shave oil was until I bought this. Now, I can never shave again without putting this on first. It smells great (I have tried eucalyptus and orange), and most importantly, has reduced the amount of friction between the blade and my skin. I very rarely have irritated skin now after a shave (and if I do, their after shave balm takes care of it). I recommend using all the Like Grandpa shave products for an excellent shave every time.
