    Default What is the "Shave Secret"?

    Bought this shave secret stuff and have been using it but dont know if it's actually working. Don't know if I can chalk it up to placebo or not. Anybody use and swear by it?

    I use it when I shave with a straight, or a particularly aggressive DE. I put about 7 drops in my palm and rub it on before my lather and it works as well as any other pre-shave oil I've tried. It advertises itself as a straight up shaving oil, no lather needed, but I've never used it alone. But as a PSO it works great.

    I've only used it as a pre-shave oil. I think that it works pretty good, though I don't use it that often. I saw it at Wal-Mart and thought I would give it a try.
    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    I used this without any goop/foam/lather for the last few years I was cart shaving. I honestly liked it much better than any canned stuff I had tried.

    I find it the same as any pre-shave oil...

    I've used it on its own years ago with cartridge shaving and liked it then, especially for travel. And the price is right.

    I don't like oils anymore, must have been a phase.

    Works as a preshave oil. I don't care for the wintergreen smell.

    I think more than a placebo, it can help make up for poor lather especially (if the lather isn't slick enough this should help). Plus maybe some other poor technique issues (blade buffing too much), so I think it can be more than a placebo. But it's only if it helps you, I don't notice a difference, yet I've used it a few times, I think I can be a little more aggressive since it helps the slickness a lot. Or maybe just be lazier with my technique.

    I use it when I shave around my goatee
    As long as your going to be thinking anyway, think big.

    I'm not big on the clove oil scent, but like it as a pre-shave oil, still using soap.
