Many guys don’t like to spend the time to shop for skin care.  Even I sometimes get exhausted just trying to figure out what grooming products to try next.  Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer was developed to help men simplify their shaving routines.  It’s basically a shaving oil and an aftershave balm/moisturizer in one convenient all-natural product.  It provides a nice glide for your razor while you shave and helps your skin recover post-shave.   The Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer has a very light consistency and absorbs well into the skin.  It won’t clog pores or razors.  Oils of argan, jojoba, and grapeseed nourish and soothe while peppermint and rosemary refresh and cool.  Lavender (sensitive skin) and Earl Grey (all skin types) options are also available.  If you want to streamline your grooming routine while minimizing bumps and razor burn, try Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer.  It could change the way you shave.

Dermalogica Close Shave Oil Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Dermalogica, Amazon, and other retailers.
Scent: Subtle clove with slight traces of lavender, tea tree, and orange.
I liked: The mild yet masculine scent.  The texture of the oil was light and easy to apply.  I did not experience any cuts when using this product.  It can be used alone or with a shave cream.  This pre-shave oil does not contain artificial fragrances or color.
Suggested improvements: The camphor was hardly noticeable. I would have liked more of a cooling effect.

Dermalogica’s Close Shave Oil effectively minimizes the risk of getting nicks and razor burn.  Though this product can be used alone, I usually combine it with a shave cream to create a protective buffer between my face and the razor.  If you have never used a pre-shave oil before, I highly recommend trying one out – it may change the way you shave.  Just be sure to use a pre-shave oil that is natural and does not contain petroleum-based ingredients, e.g., mineral oil, or synthetic fragrances.  A video of me using Dermalogica’s Close Shave Oil can be found here.

From Sandpaper to Baby Bottom

Note: Be careful when selecting a pre-shave oil.  Make sure it is made of all natural ingredients such as grapeseed oil and jojoba oil.  Avoid products with synthetic or petroleum-based ingredients such as mineral oil as they tend to clog your pores and contribute to breakouts and other types of skin irritation.
