Rated 4 out of 5 by xSoundwave Pre-shave Oil? Pre-shave goodness!
Before trying the "unscented" pre-shave oil in the Art of ShavingÂ® Lexington Gift Set I have never heard of or used a pre-shave oil
The description says that the pre-shave oil is "unscented". However, I must say that the scent totally reminds me of tree sap? I wasn't too fond of the scent but I applied the pre-shave oil anyway. On the skin, the pre-shave oil felt like liquid wax that is used in hair removal. It gave a slight warm sensation and was a little sticky to the touch. I wasn't sure if this was going to help with my shave or not.
Honestly, I could not say that the oil softened my facial hair. I would say that the pre-shave oil definitely helps protect against irritation and razor burn. With the combination of the shaving cream, it definitely promotes razor glide. However, my only complaint is you will find that your facial hair gets stuck in the razor blade very easily. The combination of the pre-shave oil and shaving cream creates a very sticky texture. Expect to use really hot water in order to rinse it off.
In the end, I would gladly recommend adding this to your shaving routine for an extra smooth shave!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillyC03 Like it, but I'm still not sold on the benefits
I've used the unscented pre shave oil 10+ times now. The trickiest part of reviewing this product is truly understanding and realizing the benefit. Why is that? It's because it's a pre-shave use product. Immediately following the use of it, I lather on the cream, shave and then use the after-shave balm. My face feels wonderful after I shave, and (for what it's worth according to my wife) "very smooth and kissable".
I did shave a few times without using the pre-shave oil and my face didn't feel as nice during the shave, but still felt nice after my shave was completion.
Would I buy the pre-shave oil again? Absolutely as part of the total package, but individually I'm not sure I'd go running out to the store to buy it. It's just not as vital (to me) as the cream and after-shave products which are 5 star.
What does this mean for you? Give it a shot and judge for yourself. It might be just what you need to improve your shave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joeypaul63 Great Step For Shave Prep
After receiving The Art of Shaving Lexington Gift Set, I opened the box and found products to help me produce an awesome shaving experience. The very first product that I used when I started prepping for my shave is the unscented pre-shave oil. I will honestly say that I have never used a pre-shave oil before and did not know what to expect but was quite open-minded in trying. I liked that it didn't have a scent that over power and overtake my experience. It felt quite nice when i applied it and it really lives up to what it says it does. it softened my facial hair especially my beard that my wife has been after me to shave off. It also softened my face face which helps when I am shaving close to prevent any cuts. I especially liked how it didn't have that "greasy" feel on my skin or leave a "greasy" residue after shaving. I really liked the oil so much that I will now continue to use a pre-shave oil whenever I shave. It really does make a huge difference in the shaving experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 The Art of ShavingÂ® Lexington - Pre Shave Oil
First time ever using this, but The Art of ShavingÂ® Lexington Pre Shave Oil. Seemed to make facial hair soft and ready to be shaved off. Would use again for sure.
