How to Use Pre-Shave Oil

The key to getting a close, luxurious shave is all in the prep.  The simple step of adding pre-shave oil to your shaving routine will upgrade your shave in a whole new way.  Read on to learn How to Use Pre-Shave Oil.

 

Why Use Pre-Shave Oil?

There are a variety of benefits to using pre-shave oil (we have a full blog post about it!), including:

• Adds an extra layer of lubrication to your skin
• Helps to protect your skin from knicks and cuts therefore reduces redness and irritation
• Protecting your skin makes it look and feel better than ever before

      

     

    How to Use Pre-Shave Oil

    1. Wet your face with warm water.

    This step is pretty simple – using your hands or a face cloth, wet your face with warm water to open up your pores and allow for a closer shave.

     

    2. Add a few drops of Pre-Shave oil to the palm of your hand.

    Remove the cap of your pre-shave oil and put a few drops in the palm of your hand. As you use pre-shave oil, you’ll start to learn the perfect amount for your own shave.

     

    3.Gently massage the pre-shave oil into your skin

    Some like to rub their hands together to spread the oil around first, which you can do! Then gently massage the oil into your beard or stubble bristles, working it down into your skin.

     

    4. Wait a 2-4 seconds.

    Let the pre-shave oil sit on your skin for a few seconds to allow it time to settle.

     

    5. Apply your shaving cream as you normally would.

    You can use the same scent as your pre-shave oil, or choose a complimentary scent to mix and match.  If you’re new to shaving, be sure to check out our post on How to Shave without a Shaving Brush

     

    6. Enjoy your shave.
    Shaving shouldn’t just be a chore – experience true luxury with every shave. Want to add an extra layer of luxury?  Try shaving with a shaving brush which we have available in our shop here.
