Hello gents,

So I just have a question regarding pre-shave products. My typical routine is shower and then shave which is great. However, I use soap that removes most if not all of the natural oils on my face (I have semi-oily skin). When I go to shave, my skin sometimes feels to dry (oil-free) making the shave very uncomfortable. Tried using pre-shave oil but didn't really feel much of a difference, other than that haven't tried much else. Anyone else going through something similar? Any advice on what product might help resolve this problem? Thanks.

Perhaps try a different soap on your face when you shower.  Also, some guys shave before they shower and it works well for them.

With specific response to your questions I would highly recommend Baume. Be pre shave gel. Adds hydration and is extremely slick!!

I use Myrsol Emulsion every day as a pre-shave. It's the only product I use every day, except for my trusty scuttle.

Solution for you :

If you continue to shave after your shower, use Myrsol Emulsion Pre Shave cream. It rocks your world.
Start using a milder soap for your face, when you shower.
I use these two facial cleansers, both are mild, and will most likely help you to keep your face feeling less dry after your shower:
Osmium Clean & Refresh (arguably the most luxurious and gentle face wash ever made)
Baxter of California Daily face wash
(Mild cleanser with coconut oil and aloe Vera)

you might try using baby lotion or baby oil as a pre shave. the oil works good for me. and cold water shaving after the shower.

I just use Nivea Creme before the shave.  Works great for me.

Noxema!  Just a bit on a damp face goes a long way.
