I have been using this pre shave oil for the last week with great results , I must admit , and I'm here to tell you , that if you want to spend your money on a good pre shave oil , this could be a great choice.

Lets check its ingredients :

As you can read , this pre shave oil is a combination of natural oils of Avocado , Wheat Germ , Sweet Almond Oil , Sunflower , Jojoba , Grape Seeds...Well , sounds good to me and its more complex than others , like the Art of Shaving ones.

Its presentation is quiet sober , just on a 50ml plastic tube , good if you want to travel with it.

It doesn't have a scent , I mean , it does , but its very subtle. Its not strong like the unscented Art of Shaving pre shave oil.You can smell the natural oils but its not over powering at all.

You also don't need a lot of it , so 50 ml will last you a lot.I have very dry skin ,specially now in winter (oh Utah winter) and I only need 3 drops to cover all my face with it.

Its has a light texture so its not going to clog your razor : actually it will increase the razor gliding , as well as protecting the skin like a champ.

Its price its 9,95 pounds for the 50 ml , but its cheaper than some others like the Truefitt and Hill or the Art of Shaving ones (the AoS comes in bottles of 60 ml)

A great pre shave oil.

If you can get it try the german nivea creme, cheaper and just as good.

Thank you for the review Teiste. I have not yet tried the pre-shave oil (I generally do not go for oils) but may give this a try based on your description.

Same here, thanks Teiste. Was wondering on their preshave oil as I too have tried the AOS and wasn't too excited about using it again.

I got it for free with a brush, I have given away it, didn't do anything for me to improve my shave, the person who received the pre shave oil liked it.

I don't use pre shave oil, but your review Teiste has tempted me to give it a try...

What Ben 74 said. I'm always looking for an excuse to try something new.

Good lord, and I've been giving my tubes away. I usually do not go for oils as I cannot imagine extra oil is good for the brush ..... but this review is tempting me to revisit this thought.

I received a tube of Simpsons oil as a gift.  I feel it has made my shaves better.  The scent is natural and fairly light.  A few (2-3) drops goes a long way.

I use this on occasion, not regularly -- typically after I've skipped a day. It is helpful.
