    Default Coconut oil as a pre shave?

    Has anyone used this as a pre shave? I have actually shaved with it when I was using carts. It works fairly well.

    make sure it is labeled virgin coconut oil or it can be pore clogging. Only those labeled virgin for coconut oil are ok.

    I use grapeseed oil or jojoba oil, both are great and neither one is comedogenic

    I use Almond Oil from Weleda ( Extraordinary).. and Argan Oil ( sempre Vivo, spain). Both are amazing and almost scent free.
    Coconut oil is pretty nice, but should be virgin

    I used to use coconut oil as a pre-shave and as a shave oil. It worked great.

    In my experience other oils are better for the task.

    If you want to use an oil I highly recommend "Shave Secret" easily found at Wal Mart for less than 5 dollars. 3 drops is all you need. This stuff changed my shaves dramatically for the better...

    I have just started using grapeseed oil as a pre shave. I am also using it after and before bed. Although its a little early to be sure, so far I have had excellent results.

    Also, it tastes good.

    Plus a giant bottle of grapeseed oil is only $3.49, it will last a very, very long time

    +1 on the above-mentioned alternative oils. I do my own mix--including castor oil, essential oils, and a bit of lanolin and glycerin--which I use as my aftershave. Even if I use a drying soap like Williams, my skin ends up being moisturized and soft.
