This is without question the very best pre shave oil I have used. The scent is simply divine and the lubrication is awesome.

I just received and try this product, really nice scent. I'm a beginner with safety razor and I usually have some irritations after shaving which didn't occur this time using pre shave oil from Executive shaving compare with another brand previously used. Highly recommended.

Came across this product when viewing the how to shave with a safety razor video. I have a tough stubbble and this oil certainly has made shaving easier for me, two pumps onto a wet beard, rub it in, leave some on, apply cream on top for a smooth shave. I cannot recommend this pre shave oil enough. Great value for money also.

Since I started using this oil my shaving rash is gone, no irrtation, no burning sensation when shaving, I took advice from Executive Shaving, they made some suggestions on how I can improve how I shave, so I ditched the Feather blades for Personas and bought the oil - great advice!!

WOWSER! Everything a pre shave oil should be and more besides. Delivers lubrication, softens the beard hairs and smells awesome. Best of all, as claimed by the makers, no messy residue, no brush damage.

This oil is good, very good in fact. As described, no clogging up of brush and razor and no mess afterwards, is it a 'magic' oil? Leaves a non-sticky layer of oil on the skin aiding razor glide. I'll buy it agin.

This is not really an oil as I would know one, it has been most likley emulsified so it really does not act like a true oil, that being said it's a wonderful product, it does lubricate, protect and smell as nice as claimed. Good value for money and next day delivery!!! Hats off guys, well done.

I've only ever used one other shave oil - I won't name it as that isn't what this review is about. This isn't oily like most shaving oils - however it doesn't clog up the blade, it smells great, softens the beard, delivers lubrication and does exactly what it says on the tin!! Can't fault it and its reasonably priced too. TBH I bought it on a whim as it was the No 1 selling pre shave product according to the site - well they would say that wouldn't they? Its their product on their site!! HOWEVER now I've used it I can well believe that it is the best selling pre shave on this site. Give it a whirl, I cannot imagine that you'd be disappointed.

I tried pre-shave oils in the past (The Art of Shaving). Fairly happy with the results, but didn't like the gloopy, slimy feel of it, nor the mess it leaves in the sink. It also smelt like cloves and although the results were good, it stayed on the shelve. This is great in comparison! Recommended by the folks at Executive Shaving; I am delighted with the results. It feels nice to apply, shave with, and no mess. No nicks, irritations, or slimy face afterwards. Shaving just got a whole lot easier.

Great little product, that does the job. Scent is pleasing and mild will not interfere with your Soap/Cream scent. Not one to use a pre-shave as I believe a decent soap or cream should be able to stand alone; however this product gives you that extra comfort and glide in-between passes that helps with reducing irritation. I would say packaging and labeling could be improved to make it more pleasing on the eye, however definitely not a show stopper...Will be buying another when mine runs out. It is fair to say that I now buy all my Traditional shaving gear from Exec Shaving. The service is truly exceptional; if that is speaking with Brian or Alan, their passion and experience in TS always leads to a great conversation and sound advice. I have called numerous times and gone with their recommendations; I have never been let down. I just wish they were down in London so I could meet them face to face.

5 stars for how it works, ease of use, the scent, very joyful to use ! 3 stars because it isn't an oil !!! It's an emulsion… 1st ingredient water, 2nd glycerine, then 3 kinds of grease conjugated with potassium for making some foam when you rub it on the face and lovely scents. This means you need the double quantity (or drops) respect a "true" oil where there is no water. Then the average is 4 stars.

This stuff is absolutely fantastic! I couldn't imagine shaving without it now. I just ordered 3 more bottles (one for a friend, one for my Dad and another for me!). You can read the description, but to me the scent reminds me of lemons and pine trees, and is not overpowering - just awesome. Noticeably better shave using this oil, and probably 90% of why I look forward to shaving now.

Delivered to Singapore with a number of other things very promptly. This is a great product and is far superior to the other pre-shave treatments I've used. Now, I rarely use anything else. The scent is one of the best bits of the morning; wakes me up a treat.

A great pre shave oil, with a great fragrance. Well pleased with this product.

I had given a marking and recommendation on the Pre shave oil part of this product offer as requested by Brian ( which can be found there ) I was very pleased with the oil ,anyone wishing to try this no doubt will not be disappointed by the duel offer of the pre shave oil and moisturising balm , which has to be a bargain .

Used this twice so far and what a difference to my normal oil.. I have only been shaving with a safety razor for about 6 months and was going to give it up because of issue.. Not now though. Watching the videos on this site and now using their products.. Much better shave. Loving it.

Excellent pre-shave prep: I was dubious about pre-shaves after using Truefitt and Prorasso's versions but, having been advised by Brian to try this, I, sceptically, ordered it. I'm delighted that I did and this is now an integral part of my shaving routine. The razor glides so smoothly that I initially thought that it wasn't cutting, but the result was a very close, smooth shave; I highly recommend this!

Excellent pre-shave. Super smooth over the skin, goes on really well, smells great and overall adds to the shaving experience. I believe that I am getting a closer shave as a result. If you are looking a product to make life better...... Start the morning with this one..... Does not cost a fortune and does the job.

An excellent product. It rubs in to a milky emulsion criticised by others but I like this quality. And there is no denying its effectiveness, marvellous. More comfort, I'm all for it. On first use I was surprised by its unexpected lovely fruity scent.

If you wet shave, buy this...give a protective layer, leaves face feeling smooth, smells great & does clog up a convert. Great site & great advice from Brian.

Please allow me to revisit my earlier review. After a month of daily use I can summarise this product in one word: indispensable. For comfort and smoothness I will never omit this. I've just ordered a second to be sure there's a spare ready when this eventually gives up.

Just got the Executive Shaving Pre Shave and used it in my shave prep today. Really impressed with it! Firstly it's the perfect consistency, rather like pure glycerin but perhaps a little thicker. I wet my face with warm water and then massaged a single pump worth from the dispenser bottle into my whole beard area. Really lubricates and softens the whiskers and skin. I even added another dollop for my final pass which was very successful. I've also got Castle Forbes water soluble pre shave which is good but a little to thin and watery and therefore this beats it for lubrication and glide. Will stick to this from now on. Highly recommended! Thanks to the Executive Shaving people!

amazing pre shave oil, i like the way it lathers up and doesnt leave any kind of messy residue around the sink. Definately helps with softening the bristles up and helps with giving a great close shave. One or two pumps is good enough for 2 passes.

By far the most superior pre shave oil that I have ever used. I have really sensitive skin that has been cut to ribbons over the years as well as being prone to razor burn but this oil has totally eliminated that. There are oils that are available to men but to be quite honest, I would purchase this one. The smell is fantastic and though it's advised to wash a little off your face before shaving I prefer to keep it on for added protection. This pre shave oil is an essential piece of kit for your shaving equipment.

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating

Outstanding product! Yes, as others have said it is not a true "oil", but is all the better for it. Maybe a name change might be appropriate though? I would also add that it lasts a lot longer than you might think - especially if you only use one pump, rather than the two or three recommended. The product is so concentrated that I find one is enough, especially if you wash your face first. Smells lovely too, managing to be simultaneously stimulating and calming! Not sure how that works mind...!

The smell of the product is amazing. The mixture of lime and patchouli plus the intensity of the aroma is spot on. Brian, seriously you have to look at doing an aftershave balm with this fragrance! One to two pumps is all you need so a bottle will last ages. It really does help the razor glide across the skin. I used just this with a Shavette to finely edge my sideburns after an initial full shave combined with ES's shaving cream. I couldn't be more delighted with this. Thanks ES!

Prep is the key before a shaving, people expect every products to work the magic! Any face scrub or face wash cleaning the skin with a warm water soften the beard to me is important. Using Executive Pre Shave Oil on top works superb to prepare for the shave! it add i only use this if i'm using a shaving soaps and the Braveheart razor, it makes the difference those who like to do 2 or 3 pass shave, no mess or oily residue. Will be buying more soon

Have been using this for a while now, probably the best pre shave product I have used smells great too. Good on the skin and provides a good shave the only issue I have with is product is that I am unable to stop my wife from using it, much to my annoyance. I have had to label it NOT FOR GIRLS but this failed.

Love this product. I've used a few pre-shave products, and they don't seem to do much. This works like it's supposed to, has a nice scent, and is an all round nice addition to my shave routine.

I purchased your own brand Pre Shave Oil and thought it excellent. However, when the time came to purchase again I thought I would have a change and opted for the American Crew version. Big mistake!! It's nowhere near as good as yours. You can rest assured when this runs out I won't be making the same mistake twice!

Let no-one say that price is an indicator of quality. Having been used to Prorazo menthol as a pre-shave, this product was just a punt for me as I was happy with my usual routine. I am so glad I tried it, it is top notch and great value. Used with Fitjar or AdP SC the combination is a great, safe shave, even though I am using the Rocca and a feather blade. Well done ES, worth every penny of your investment and time to bring such a quality product to the market.
