I actually quit using preshave altogether. I found it wasn't helping my shaves at all. I found that quality soap gut rid of the need for preshave.

how lucky.  blood was out of the equation as soon as i started using it.  i don't mean cuts.  i forgot about cuts a while ago.  i mean that little blood that appears that let you know that you went a little too far with the exfoliation.  the one that rinses away and doesn't come back.  ahhh.  the thing is that when i took that step forward, i went after the ultimate bbs a step further.  it seems that i just like knocking on the limits door.

i don't think that the soaps i am using are any bad.  i mean:  viking, shannons, tabac, cold river, dr. harris, checkz and speake, la cigale, cella, saponifico, bigelow, proraso, etc.  

i gess i have soft skin and tough whiskers!

I used to, sometimes, but, then I got the shaving soap that matched it, and, the menthol in the soap, &, cream make up for that in the pre-shave.  I tried to give up the pre-shave, but, no, I need it.  It is basically a milder form of cold cream/skin cream.  I love it.  It is one of my favourite grooming consumables.

I wash my face with Noxzema Moisturizing Cleansing Cream (the one that doesn't smell like menthol). Rinse and apply a pre-shave cream to wet face then lather.

In my case a warm 10 minute shower is the best preshave, I only use Pure Greek Olive Oil Soap with only three ingredients; Sodium Olivate (saponified olive oil), Aqua, Sodium Chloride, and Citric Acid (a natural pH balancer) , leaves you squeaky clean without using liquid oil for the Oil Cleansing Method, which does work... goodbye dry, flaky skin

I don't usually use preshave oil anymore but will put mango butter sometimes now before I shower. But I have used the SV preshave oil in similar fashion as you mention as pre and then before lathering on 2nd and 3rd passes.
