The Personal Barber Samurai Ultimate Pre-Shave Oil
We may be biased but this is the best pre-shave oil on the market!
Why is this special? Unlike other shaving oils, ours has been made from the finest cold-pressed oils which means every drop of skin loving benefits have been preserved.
Our unique formula showcases oils that have been selected specifically for their anti-inflammation properties which makes them ideal when used as part of a shaving routine. They're also extremely low on the comedogenic scale making them suitable for all skin types (yes, even oily skin) without clogging pores or causing breakouts. The chosen oils are light and fast absorbing so they don’t leave the skin feeling greasy or stick to the sink.
Featuring cold-pressed blackcurrant seed oil, jojoba seed oil, hemp seed oil, safflower seed oil and a refined watermelon seed oil.
The Samurai scent is our popular fragrance described as a heady blend with top notes of bergamot, orange, eucalyptus, and rosemary rounded out with notes of ginger, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg on a base of sandalwood, cedarwood, amber and musk.
How To Use
Our ultimate pre-shave oil has been specially formulated to be used in tandem with your shaving lather as it adds an extra layer of protection to allow for a close shave without any hint of irritation, particularly useful if you have sensitive skin.
The light, fast-absorbing oils fill in the tiny cracks in your skin to create a smooth surface for the razor to glide over, as well as softening your hairs and locking in moisture so the blade glides through without any resistance.
For best results, use after a shower/cleansing and before applying your shaving lather.
To use: Massage 5-10 drops of oil into your beard. Leave for a full minute whilst you build up your shaving lather and then apply that directly on top. Then shave!
Why does cold-pressed matter? Most oils are extracted with heat and/or solvents to maximise their yield, and then deodorised and bleached to remove scent and colour. This process helps maximise yield at a cheaper cost with an increased shelf life, but it degrades the fatty acids and precious plant-specific compounds that give individual oils their nutritional, healing and antioxidant properties.
We have sourced cold pressed, British blackcurrant seed oil, jojoba seed oil, hemp seed oil, safflower seed oil and a lightly refined watermelon seed oil to create a pure and premium product for your skin.
