What pre shave did you use today?

Somerset's Pre Shave Face Scrub
Own Mix: Argan Oil/Castor Oil/Jojoba Oil/Coconut Oil/Sweet Almond/Tee Tree & Eucalyptus Smithii fragrance
 
Mitchell's lanolin before going in the shower (pre-shave) and Trumper's Indian Limes Skin Food (pre-shave) after showering and before starting to shave. I also exfoliate my beard with a hot flannel between passes, as my stubble is like copper wire! Result: super close shave even when using a mild razor and blade
 
Dove Beauty Bar. Rubbed it on dry, wetted my beard and lathered up with Cella. Seemed to permit an extra bit of closeness (I think).

Will likely try others, as I like experimenting with products re-tasked as pre-shaves. I've already had good luck with Noxzema, a shave gel and hair conditioners, but Dove seems better. And, of course, one of these days I'll break down and try some dedicated pre-shave products (Cube, Grooming Dept., etc.)

That said, nothing beats a good, well-beaten lather generously applied.

As of now, I only have one preshave lotion, Proraso White. I'll try others once this tub is done. It seems to do a nice job, but I have nothing else to compare it to.

Nivea For Men Cool Kick Arctic Freeze wash and Shave Gel. Used it as a face wash and then left it on and lathered the Nivea Cream over the shave gel. Have a great shave.
