I have been hearing so much about the benefits of Pre-shave oil that I want to give it a try. I am a little concerned about the effects on my skin. While I am 35, I still have fairly oily skin and tend to have my pores clog pretty easily. I currently use Edge ActiveCare Cleansing shave cream because it is light with little lather and does not leave me with oily skin all day. Historically, I have had success with cleansing types of shave gels/creams.
Given that, will shave oil leave me with oily skin? I have been considering the CO Bigelow Pre-shave Oil for sensitive skin. I would like something I can get locally, so this would fit the bill, plus it is priced right.
For what it is worth, I currently use a Gillette Fusion Power razor with the previously mentioned shave cream in the shower. My prep includes a face scrub and face wash to both prep the beard and clean my face. My facial hair does not grow too quickly (I get a five o'clock shadow after a day and a half) but my facial hair is quite thick so I tend to shave every day. Going longer than that is too tough on the blade.
Thanks for your help.
