Shaving Oil vs Shaving Cream – Which one is for me?


Shaving cream and aftershave are the current standards when it comes to men’s shaving products, but that’s changing – fast. Shaving oil is becoming more popular – here’s why!

Where Shaving Cream Falls Short

Most guys learn to shave with a standard, from-the-can shaving cream or foam. The issue with shaving creams is that they contain harmful ingredients that you really don’t want to be putting on your skin – if you care what you look like, that is. Petroleum-based mineral oil, for example, clogs pores. Triethanolamine is another culprit. Not only is it linked to cancer, it dries out the skin, making it more prone to irritation. Yep – that means: flakes, razor burn, dryness. Not attractive. Mature Man Gesturing Ok Sign

Shaving Oil – The Perfect Solution

Shaving oil  works so much better. The advantages include:

  • Transparent, so you can actually see what you’re doing! Fewer “missed a spot” moments means fewer strokes across your face and less irritation. Not to mention, it’s much more efficient!
  • Beard hair readily absorbs the oil and becomes softer and more manageable.
  • Oil moisturizes and strengthens the skin, so it stands up to shaving and looks a million times better when you’re beard-free.
  • One product replaces an annoying regimen of multiple products saving you time and making travel much more simple.

Here are our tips on how to get the best shave with shaving oil:

  1. Shaving OFTEN minimizes irritation, as the shorter hair minimizes razor drag.
  2. Applying a pre-shave oil can eliminate irritation.
  3. Using a clean, sharp razor is key.
  4. Shave after your shower, when your skin is clean and damp and your pores are open.
  5. Shave in the direction that your hair grows to minimize irritation.

This isn’t just theory – we’ve seen it firsthand! We’ve heard from so many men who use skin solution™ as a shaving oil say that their skin is better than it has been in years. Don’t just take our word for it… See for yourself!
