Create a protective layer on your skin to prevent irritation and razor burn

The Art of Shaving's Pre-Shave Oil is near and dear to our hearts at M Penner. Applying it is the first step in their trademarked 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave™, helping protect against irritation and razor burn by increasing glide. It was also the first product created by Co-Founder, Myriam Zaoui, when she and her husband started the brand back in 1996.

The Sandalwood Pre-Shave Oil is made with Sandalwood essential oil 100% sustainably sourced from Western Australia's Gibson Desert - a remote region whose harsh climate is known to produce the highest-quality Sandalwood. Sandalwood essential oil is known to help nourish dry skin, and has a warm, masculine aroma that promotes calmness and improves mood.

The Pre-Shave Oil softens facial hair and reduces tug and pull, all with a lightweight feel that leaves no oily residue. It's formulated with a unique blend of botanical ingredients and essential oils and is suitable for all beard types.

How To Use:

Applying Pre-Shave Oil is the first step in The Art of Shaving's trademarked 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave™. Before shaving, place a few drops of Pre-Shave Oil onto your fingertips. Massage the oil into the area to be shaved (including the neck) to help soften and lift facial hair. You'll need just enough to provide a light coating over the beard area. Do not rinse off before shaving. Instead, apply Shaving Cream directly on top.
