Like most of us who use electric razor, I have used other pre shave lotions for years. None of them have lived to the marketing claims of raising the brittle so the razor can shave it closer. They all have made my shaving much smoother, they have reduced irritation making the shaving heads gliding smoothly on the skin (in my experience, LAB series pre electric lotion was particularly good at that), they help making the shaving a bit closer, but my Philips shaver could not match the Gillette razor. Until I used this product.
This product takes the electric shaving to the next level. Literally. That's how good it is.
It is not as oily as Lab product and has nice delicate lemony fragrance, smells very nice. It make the skin very smooth, so the shaving heads glide effortlessly. And most importantly - this is the first product I have tried that really raises the brittle so the shave is really close.
Let me share a tip - when you done with your shaving, wet your face with water - not too much, just make it moist. It will raise all those brittles that the shaver has missed (the trick the cabinet makers use when polishing wood) And shave again for about 1 min more. The result will rival the results delivered by 3 passes of Gillette Sensor.
I am still sceptical about claims about " ancient Japanese oils", after all I can not see any of them on the ingredients list. However, this does not worry me at all - I do not think they would make this product any better.It is perfect as it is.
I will buy this as long as it stays in production.
