The Best Shaving Oil
Shaving oils are a leap of faith. The first time you oil up your face, you'll swear there's nothing there. But for some, shaving oils are the wave of the future. They're small in size which makes them ideal to travel with. A few drops cover your entire face, so they last forever. Shave for shave they're the best bang for the buck.
Shaving oils are not for everyone. Experience indicates that they're best for lighter beards and heartier skin, but that's an unscientific survey of only a couple people. Also, shaving oils shouldn't be confused with pre-shave oils, which go on before a layer of shaving cream or gel. When using shaving oil, you don't use anythng else.
The two best shaving oils we've tried are the all-natural Pacific Shaving Oil and the mostly natural King of Shaves Formula Alpha Shaving Oil Supercooled Menthol. Both are available online for about six bucks, and King of Shaves has recently become available at local drugstores. You can read the ShavingStuff review of Pacific Shaving Oil here. You can read the review of King of Shaves... oh wait - you can't read the review because the reviewer never wrote one. (You know who you are.) But I have heard back from him that King of Shaves scored very highly, and he used up the whole bottle.

The best shaving oil I've come across is The Village Barber. 100% natural and not just a surface oil like King of Shaves - this stuff actually nourishes the skin as well and it's much smoother under the razor. Since I started using it my razor rash has completly disappeared. I also use the same company's aftershave balm. The guy who makes them is a professional straight-edege razor shaver - so he should know his stuff. There's a useful guide to wet shaving on his site, too. Apparently, it's all about preparation.
" ...and King of Shaves has recently become available at local drugstores."
Local to what? You're on the world-wide-web.
(I looked in every local store in Ulaan Bator, Mongolia, and I couldn't find any King of Shaves. ha ha)
