Have been shaving with a Merkur 33C safety razor for years and using the supermarket brand shave foam. The shave oil and shave cream combination is a huge step up. Try it; you’ll love the result.
The oil glides on and softens the bristles, while the shave cream stays where you want it. The razor glides across my skin giving me a close smooth shave. My skin feels refreshed and hydrated after wards......great products!
A winning combination--I like the oil better than the cream.
I can’t get over how much I love the pre shave oil! It has a delightful scent of cloves (and possibly other spices) and feels warming on the face. The pump dispenser makes it very easy to use also. The shave cream does make it very easy to shave with as well.
