Very average Review by Nicholas
This pre-shave oil is average at best. Other products on the market, including GL's pre-shave are just as good, if not better. The oil does not interact well with the shaving cream and is a tad too thick.
No Great Shakes Review by Andre
For the price point, it is very disappointing! Just barely a step up from olive oil....I've tried just about every pre-shave oil on the market. From the most obscenely expensive to the very cheap. (And yes, I've even tried regular olive oil)... Art of Shaving pre-shave oil can be described in one word...MEDIOCRE...
It's very thick, yet it doesn't help glide your razor very well and clogs easily. It will help give you a closer shave, but not as close as you would expect. When compared to the other fine shaving oil's on this site, Art of Shaving can't even compete...
If you are new to pre-shaving oils, I recommend starting out with The Grooming Lounge pre-shave oil. It is far superior and cost less than the Art of Shaving...But if you are looking for the absolute best pre-shave oil, shell out an extra 5 bucks and get the Truefitt & Hill...That is by far the best pre-shave oil on the market. And a little goes a long, long way!
Love this stuff Review by Matt
I bought this oil (sandal wood) at the recommendation of a friend and love it. The smell is warm, consistency nice and thick, it holds the cream well and makes the overall experience something to look fwd to. Highly recommended.
avoid this Review by badgerhair
very disappointing product. almost smells like the oil has been highly heated at some point: a stale, greasy smell (I got the lemon one and there is no citrus in there at all). Also doesn't seem to work nearly as well as the trufitt & hill pre-shave oil I used to have. I need to throw this away and buy another one...
Great shaving products Review by ct
Art of Shaving makes great products, and the pre-shave oil is no exception. All the scents are wonderful, refreshing without overwhelming, and make shaving a breeze.
felt like syrup Review by Duran
I thought I would give this a try and that was about as far as it went, did not use much and bought something else. Maybe I was using too much but I thought it was way too thick, this was not the first oil I had used. Would not buy again
Average Review by Derik
This products was nothing spectacular in the realm of shaving oils. It does its job just fine but I prefer Slick Water over this. The scent is pleasing though (Lavender).
Really nice as a pre-shave oil Review by Aaron
I use the sandalwood scent, and love it. I apply as a pre-shave oil, especially when my beard is thick. Helps soften and minimizes razor burn. This is my go to pre-shave oil. A bit expensive, but will last a very long time.
