Eric has developed a pre-shave oil, just like you find in the high-end stores and at the fancier barber shops.
It's the first step in a pampering, close shave. The oil is used before shaving to soften the beard and prepare the skin for a close and comfortable shave without leaving an oily residue. It's ideal for men with sensitive skin, ingrown hair, razor burn, or tough beards.
They're formulated with only natural, healthy, skin-loving oils and essential oils for scent.
Why do I like it? Because after Eric soaks his face with a hot, wet washcloth, then uses his pre-shave oil, and then his shaving soap to shave, he's got a really smooth face and it doesn't scratch me when I try to kiss him, that's why!
He's done two scents so far, to match our current line of shaving soaps. That means there's a Clean Cut Shaving Oil, made with patchouli, fir, lavender, and rosemary essential oils and there's a Smooth Operator Shaving Oil, made with just lavender essential oil.
You can find them on their own on the Reef Botanicals site, or as part of our special Father's Day gift basket, also on the site. The basket's got one Clean Cut shaving soap and matching oil, one Smooth Operator shaving soap and matching oil, one Mashed In bar soap, and one sage green, very soft organic cotton washcloth for that great pre-oil soak before shaving.
The baskets are currently listed at $40, but look for a sale from June 7-15, when they'll be 25% off!
