Oil can clog safety razors; smells of olive oil.
Performance: If you prefer a dryer, mess-free shave, you'll love this shaving oil! While it's designed to be used as a pre-shave conditioner for your skin and hair, it can be used in place of shaving cream for a dry shave. Just a few drops of this oil will soften your hair, making it easier for your razor to slice through them. It will also coat your face with a protective layer to reduce friction and prevent rashes.
It's an all-natural product, made with seven different essential oils (grapeseed, cranberry, wheat germ, neem, and Vitamin E among them) that help to soften and moisturize your skin. It claims to be made with sandalwood, but it has a mild scent of olive oil--to be expected given that organic olive oil is one of the primary ingredients.
The oil may clog your safety razor, so you'll need to wash it out carefully. However, you'll find that it leaves a thin film of oil, protecting you from dryness and nourishing your skin throughout the day.
Price: $13 may seem like a high price to pay for a small bottle of oil, but you'll find that the combination of ingredients makes it a good pre-shave/dry shave product. It will help to moisturize and nourish your skin and give you a much better shave.
