So being a newbie, I've never heard of using a pre-sahve oil before lather. I anyone using one? Toss our your recommendations and experience.

I guess my concern would be if you applying oil to your face then using a brush to apply lather, are you going to get all that oil on your brush? Does not seem like a good thing to do, as far as brush care is concerned.

I do, however, use (fairly often, but not always) Pacific Shave Oil. It makes the best creams and soaps better by putting a few drops in the lather.
If I REALLY want smooth (meaning that I won't hardly feel whiskers when I go to bed that night), I use my Feather-loaded Slantbar and PSO with a good soap. It really makes any nicks or razorburn a guaranteed non-event.
moses said:Has anyone here tried T&H UC oil? I remember hearing somewhere that it was very light - similar to PSO. Also, any suggestions on where to buy PSO? I know you can get it from the website, but it would be especially great if Charles or someone carried it, so I could combine with other goodies.
