Prepping your face before shaving can make all the difference in the end result. Shop this selection of professionally formulated pre-shave oils that will soften your beard and prepare your skin for a close and comfortable shave without leaving an oily residue. Be sure to take note of your specific skin type when selecting a pre-shave product, as many products are specially formulated for certain skin types. Whether you have especially dry, sensitive, oily, combination, irritated or normal skin, there is a pre-shave product here designed for you. There’s also help for those of you with an especially heavy beard or those prone to razor bumps and in-grown hairs. And if you prefer to shave with an electric razor, select an enhancing formula designed to stiffen and prop up your whiskers for a closer electric shave. Loaded with essential oils like lavender, sandalwood, lemon, eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary, and in some cases combined with conditioners like vitamin E and calendula oils, these pre-shave blends will help to prevent razor burn and reduce friction while shaving, while also working to soften your beard for a close, smooth shave.
