Best pre-shave

What are peoples opinions on what is the best pre-shave?

I use proraso pre-shave cream and really enjoy it. But if there is something that is far better out there I would love to hear peoples opinions. I used to use pre-shave oils a lot but they're too messy and I find they clog the razor.
Totally agree! I’ve used Nuage shave oil but it’s nowhere near as good as the Proraso.

The BBA shave oil is worth a try though - I found that good too! [emoji1360]

I always apply a hot flannel, the preshave, let it soak, then apply a hot flannel until the preshave is removed. That way the oily preshave oils do not affect the razor.

Having said that, Proraso is still my favourite.

Go to be Proraso for me - I like white the best but King of Shaves Oil is ok too - I have some Somersets Shaving Oil but I haven't tried that yet - anyone have an opinion on that?

I have almost exclusively used the classic green Proraso pre shave so far. I have yet to try the white one, of which I have heard positive things, and I have another classic yet to prove (Prep). However, if I have to say which pre-shave is, IMHO, the best, I would say Geo F. Trumper Skin Food (I've used the Lime ones which idk if still in production, but I suppose that the coral and the sandal would be the same, just with different scent).

When I use a pre-shave it's mainly Proraso Sandalwood. I find the mentholated one overpowers the scent of the shave soap. The white one is good but I prefer the warmth of the sandalwood.
I also like Argan oil - it soaks into your skin very easily and doesn't seem to affect the lather.
Other than that you could try Noxzema cleansing cream. It's a bit pongy though.
