I am not a preshave prep user, so I have no idea. We do have some folks who swear either by or at PSO. Perhaps they will register their experiences?murchmb said:
I don't think I would mess with success! If that preshave prep oil seems to do the trick, buy! buy!murchmb said:I tried an oil for the firt time this morning. A sample of KOS shaving oil. I was running around crazy after my shower and let my face get dry. To add to everything, there wasn't any more hot water by the time I got around to shaving. Expecting an awful shave, I slopped some luke warm water on my face, applied the oil and some Taylor's Avocado, and went to it with my Merkur HD and new Israeli blade in. I threw technique out the window and made it a quick one. After all that, it was one of the best shaves I've had since I started with a DE. I don't know if it was the oil, the new blade (iIusually use Merkurs), or pure dumb luck. I'm interested in preshave oils now. I guess some PSO is in my future, but the Wal-Mart product caught my eye.
