Using Pre-Shave Oil
Here is what you need to know before you use your Blade’s Grim Pre-Shave Oil. It’s necessary to test products on your skin to see how it may react. When using pre-shave oil, you may have to use more or less of it based on your skin type. Most natural oils in your skin will react well to pre-shave oil and will help protect your skin while shaving. However, if your skin is naturally oily, adding additional oil may block pores and cause break outs. It is always a good idea to test how much you think you will need on a small area of skin before starting your shaving process.
The purpose of using pre-shave oil is to help soften and enrich facial hair, and create a protective layer between your skin and the razor. This layer will prevent any razor burn, bumps, nicks or cuts.
Use pre-shave oil before starting your shaving process. Pre-shave oil is especially helpful for those who have dry skin, thick hair, and sensitive skin. The oil will help soften the hair and create a smooth glide for an effortless shave.
- Prepare your skin. Make sure your face is clean and moist when you apply your pre-shave oil. Using warm water will help to soften the hair even more.
- Applying pre-shave oil to your face. You will most likely need 3-8 drops for full coverage. Put the oil in your hands and gently rub it on your face. Your skin will absorb it quickly. You'll want to leave it looking a little shiny as this this will create the protective layer you want.
- Shave on! You're now ready to begin your shaving process. Build your lather and apply on top of your pre-shave oil. Your brush will not remove the oil when you apply your lather.
