How To Apply Your Pre-Shave Oil

  • Start by wetting your face and beard slightly
  • Place a few drops of your pre-shave oil in the palm of your hand, then massage it in until it is completely absorbed. 
  • Gently apply a hot towel to your face. This heats the oil and allows it to hydrate your skin, and leave it pliable and supple. 
  • Lather up and shave as normal. 

How To Customize Your Pre-Shave Oil

Shaving Oil

1. Choose your favorite base ingredient

HAZELNUT oil is both an emollient and a moisturizer; it softens the skin and increases elasticity.

JOJOBA oil is structurally and chemically very similar to human sebum. This enables it to trick the skin into halting its own natural oil production, making it especially good at balancing out oily skin. It will not clog pores, and as such can be used on acne-prone skin.

Specialized Oils

2. Enrich with rare, specialized oils

TAMANU oil has very powerful anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibiotic properties, making it ideal for those with persistent acne. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat rheumatism and skin infections.

VITAMIN E oil is a phenomenal alternative to synthetic preservatives. Its antioxidant properties will help prolong the shelf life of any serum and keep it from going rancid.

3. Create an original fragrance using essential oils

FRANKINCENSE essential oil features a complex fragrance, both woody and earthy with notes of fruit and spice. It helps protect skin cells and will even lift and tighten the skin, which naturally minimizes signs of aging.

LEMONGRASS essential oil has a fresh, lemony smell with a slightly earthy aroma. Its astringent properties help sterilize your pores and make it an effective cleanser for all skin types.

PEPPERMINT essential oil is an antiseptic that stimulates blood circulation in a way that feels at first cooling and refreshing, then gently warming.

CEDARWOOD essential oil has a pleasant, wood-like scent. It can cure inflammation and tighten loose muscles for a smooth-yet-firm feel.

How To Apply Your Aftershave

  1. After shaving, rinse off any remaining shaving foam and pat your face dry. 
  2. Place one or two drops of your DIY aftershave on the palm of your hand, and gently apply to the freshly-shaved area.

Apple cider vinegar is one of nature’s most powerful astringents, making it perfectly suited for oily or acne-prone skin. Witch hazel tightens the skin, fights off bacteria and reduces inflammation. This natural astringent also helps remove excess oil and works wonders on normal to oily skin.
