Why You Should Use a Pre Shave Oil

pre shave oil

We like to use pre-shave oil when we shave.

It works

Here’s why:

Have sensitive skin or prone to irritation after the shave? You should eventually be using it too. Pre-shave oil helps softens your beard so that the razor can more easily cut through the hairs. Next time you get to the store to stock up on shaving product, look for pre shave oils that have the following ingredients.

Lavender Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil

Lavender oil is a soothing ingredient that helps reduce razor burn, leaving your skin more less prone to irritation. Sunflower seed oil is a light oil that won’t clog pores or leave your skin feeling greasy. Greasiness is the worst. This oil gently moisturizes and softens skin and hair, while preventing the pre-shave oil from being overly heavy.

Castor Oil and Olive Oil

Prone to drier skin? Castor oil helps moisturize the skin, keeping it soft while helping reduce dryness or irritation. Olive oil helps the pre-shave oil to cling to your face, providing lubrication as you slide the razor over your face.
