Pre shave products

I've tried several pre shave products and some home made stuff. I've used hot towels and sometimes spent a lot of time on pre shave action.

These days?

After my shower, I just rinse mt face again in hot /warm water and leave it wet. Then apply my lather.


Great shaves every time. I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying anything. But a fairly simple pre shave routine works just fine for me.


  1. Like you, I've tried numerous pre-shave strategies, but find that all it does is add time... No perceivable benefits.

    Hot shower, warm water splash and lather away.

  2. I don't like to discourage people from trying these things but for me too, they are a waste of time and money.

  3. My theory

    Preshaves work for guys like me, fellows with very coarse beards. Preshaves spell the difference between a close and comfortable shave and lesser shaving experience.

    I think most guys who write they find preshaves unnecessary are right because they have relatively light beards and so don't need the extras a preshave offer.

  4. I totally accept that. Common sense suggests that there is continuing demand for a reason. They just don't help me.
