Though I've been wetshaving for many years, I've only recently gotten into the "hobby" of shaving. One of the things I'm looking into for the first time is pre-shaving. I've read that jojoba oil makes a great natural pre-shave and I'd like to try it, but I'm not quite sure how you use it. Do you get your face shave-ready first with hot water, then dry it, then apply the jojoba oil, or do you apply the oil while the face is still wet. And then do you immediately shave, or do you give the oil a chance to be absorbed into the skin. And one final question, are there other natural oils/balms that work well as a pre-shave? Thanks for your input.
