Excerpt from Sharpologist’s The Best Pre Shave Oil: A Comprehensive Comparison Of Shaving Oils

By Mantic59

Taconic Organic Pre-Shave Oil

Taconic Shave’s Pre-Shave Oil creates a layer over the skin to protect you from the repeated contact of the razor on your skin. This will help prevent skin rashes, bumps and razor burn. It also softens stubborn hairs so shaving will be easier, smoother, closer and more comfortable than ever before.”

Ingredients: Carthamus Tinctorius (*Safflower) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (*Castor) Seed Oil, Vitas Vinifera (Grape Seed) Oil, Citrus Latifolia Tanaka (Lime) Oil, and Tocopherol (Vitamin E). *organic ingredient

My comments:

I find this to be an excellent pre-shave oil. However, like some other reviewers, I do find I need to use a bit more compared to some of the other oils on this list. Mild citrus scent.

Other Reviews:

“Shaving my sensitive neck area can be brutal but this pre-shave oil made the difference. At first, I tried two pumps but after several shaves, it looks like four pumps works best for my shaves. Highly recommend.”

“When shaving with this oil applied, it provided moderate comfort. The slickness from the oil helped to allow the razor blade to glide along the surface of the skin with very little irritation.”

“If you are looking for a good pre-shave oil that does the job without trying to be the star of the show, then this is a good pick. Two or three squirts will do the job nicely, giving the razor a smooth glide over your skin, and the very light citrus scent won’t interfere with your after shave or cologne scent. “
