Why is Preshave Soap BETTER Than Preshave Oil?

Well first off, as with anything in life, it all comes down to personal preference. I can tell you why I think it's better, but in the end, do what works for you! First off, unlike using oil, a Preshave Soap will not gunk up your gear and rinses away easy.

I was seriously turned off by all the clean up involved when using oils. Plus I was always concerned about it getting into my favorite brushes undetected and going rancid. Also, applying oil with your hands then holding onto a blade is not the safest move in my book. [That said, if you currently use an oil, apply it with your non-shaver hand!] In short, Preshave Oils inspired me to find a better way!

Why a Preshave Soap is More Effective.

A preshave soap really offers more bang for your buck; for one, it's more affordable and longer lasting. Use it first to clean the face before you shave, then rinse. Then reapply the soap prior to whipping up lather: First in a circular motion, then against the grain. The soap gets under the hairs, slightly propping them up, giving the blade more surface area to "bite" onto. The glycerin acts as a humectant pulling more water into the hair, prepping and softening it, thus making it a bigger target to mow down!

Another benefit is the Menthol option! With our mentholated preshave soap you can turn any shave into a cooling, mentholated shave despite what scent or brand of shave soap you choose to use!

Effective pre-shave

This is a good pre-shave that adds slickness to your shave, and has an invigorating effect thanks to the menthol. I like this product and it has a regular place in my rotation. It certainly wakes you up in the mornings!

But I do have two caveats. Firstly, the ‘cube’ shtick is fun, but perhaps not the most practical form factor. It is quite slippery and the form factor does nothing to make picking it up and applying it to your face easy. I would have preferred a more traditional soap shape that was easier to handle. Secondly, a soap dish is a must. If you already have one, great. Otherwise, the PAA dock (pictured) is good.

Pre shave dominance

This block of magic is great. Super mentholated so quite cool on the face at winter time. Come summer, this will be my preferred preshave. I find it hand lathers on the face incredibly well, smells and feels warm and awesome. Gives an extra layer of protection that when left on and lathered on top of, will provide a worry free first pass. Your face remains slick and cooling throughout your shave. So it does exactly what it is meant to, clean, hydrate, soothe, lubricate, and boost your lather. I get next to zero alum feedback no matter what soap or cream I use. I am positive it is better than the famous brand preshave cream.
