Struggling to get a close, comfortable shave? A pre-shave oil may help. Pre-shave oils are designed to give your skin an added layer of defence before applying a shaving cream or soap. Moisturising the skin and protecting it from irritation and razor burn, pre-shave preparations allow you to achieve a closer shave without the fear of nicks or cuts. Pairing a pre-shave oil with a pre-shave cream or lotion provides the ultimate in pre-shave skin care.
