I dunno if you'd call it a pre-shave. It's certainly not a "pre-shave" product, and it wasn't on my face that long before I appled the "real" cream. But I rubbed a little of the La Toja stick soap into my stubble this morning a minute or so before lathering the Palmolive Classic I used for the shave itself.

For some reason I find myself doing this often, even though I doubt it makes much difference in the shave once my stubble has been soaked in the shower. Perhaps I'm looking for a scent combination: Trumper's Almond cream as PS, then Tabac in stick form as the soap (or vice versa); La Toja under Palmolive; TOBS Peppermint under Proraso Green cream (a strong menthol combo if there ever was one).
