Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street Pre-Shave Gel, 50ml
- Product Review (submitted on 13 May 2012):
First off in case you are wondering about the scent, yes, it smells absolutely identical to the rest of the Jermyn street line. (Which in my opinion is fantastic)
I'm pretty hesitant about the idea of a preshave in general being much use, but I do have to say I geared up with my Jermyn st shave soap (and a dab of the cream too... cant have too much of a good thing right?) and this preshave, and got one of the best shaves I've had in weeks. I do think it helped keep the razor gliding really well. Subsequent shaves might not have totally sold me on the idea of preshaves, but this is by far the best one I have tried, and possibly the only one I felt actually makes a difference.
So if you are considering trying this and you like the rest of this line of products, you could do worse than give it a shot. The only downside? Yeah... it's very expensive. And you probably need slightly more than just a little dab.
However on the plus side, you will get a great laugh when you see the box it comes in. What were they thinking when instead of a plain black TOBS box, they put a picture of what looks to me like Justin Beiber shaving on the front??
