I know I've seen this mentioned recently by a couple of members. I'm a method shaver fyi. I tried using the samples of Coral Skin food as a pre-shave today and the results were fascinating. I usually have to wait 36 to 48 hours before I can shave again because when my whiskers are longer they soften better. But this stuff softened my beard at barely 24 hours. I could really feel the difference in how the stubble felt after running my hand over it after I used the Skin Food with Kyles Prep. I finally experienced what it's like to not really hear the whiskers being cut. Thanks to the people I heard this from and I highly recommend trying this.
