Like others in this thread, I usually use a basic glycerine soap as a pre-shave, mostly to hydrate and soften the whiskers and then I leave it on before applying lather which may give a marginal "uberlather."  Seems to help and is cheap.  My GF recently got me some of the Proraso pre-shave cream and it does seem to work well the few times I've tried it. In both cases I think the benefit is a bit extra residual slickness from the glycerin.  Just my 2 cents.

Hear, hear.

I'm not a fan of pre-shave oil but I do experience a positive difference with a mentholated cream like Myrsol Emulsion or Proraso Pre/Post.

Can't go wrong with a little Musgo in the morning.[Image: b3b4152b3c5d90b0ecb2500810d20169.jpg]
