There was an unprecedented growth in facial hair last year, but I think 2017 will be the year of the clean shave. Now that's a bold statement, but all you have to do is catch up on recent interviews from Ryan Reynolds to know you don’t need a beard to be trendy.

Shaving isn’t an easy task, there’s actually a lot to contend with, not to mention the vast amount of products available to help you achieve it. Everyone’s familiar with the usual gel and foam variations of shaving cream, however I also add a shaving oil to the mix, and I’ll tell you why.

Firstly, What is Pre Shave Oil?

In basic terms, it’s an oil you use before you shave. Guys, I know that might sound a bit scary, but stay with me for a minute while I tell you the benefits.

The Pre Shave Oil from Gentlemen’s Tonic is the ideal companion for the perfect shave. It’s packed full of antioxidants to help prepare and protect your skin before shaving. The oil softens every hair in order to give you a close and comfortable shave. Oil-based products also tend to sink deeper into the skin, meaning your face will be left feeling soft after you’ve removed all your stubble.

How do you use it?

I’m going to let you in on another secret here; I use the Gentlemen’s Tonic Pre-Shave Oil after exfoliating! Because you exfoliate before shaving right? It helps the hairs stand on end to prevent your razor tugging.

Applying the oil couldn’t be simpler. Dispense a small amount into the palm of your hands, work it into your beard using your fingertips and then start shaving! You use the oil underneath your usual shave cream, as it acts as a barrier between the skin and razor blade. If you have naturally coarse facial hair, I’d recommend you leave the oil in your beard for a minute or so before you begin.

Pretty straightforward, right? As well as this pre shave oil, Gentlemen’s Tonic also have a wider range of skincare and shaving products. Their shaving sets not only look great, but they’re effective too. If you’re looking to have the best shaving experience, you should definitely consider investing in the range.
