A better oil for a better shave! King of Shaves Advanced Silicone Shave Oil Sensitive is formulated to give you a superbly close and comfortable shave. It delivers enhanced razor glide and excellent blade performance leaving your skin incredibly smooth, supple and moisturised, not dry and tight. It makes a great Beard Oil too!
HOW TO USE:
PREPARE: Give your stubble a good wash and soak. Wet stubble is so much easier to cut, which means less tug and pull, less irritation and more comfort so shave during (or straight after) a warm bath or shower. Cleanse face first with quality face wash or gentle exfoliating scrub.
Work 2–3 pumps of Shave Oil thoroughly into your beard, to ensure even coverage and to lift the stubble away from the skin. Pay particular attention to anywhere you get any shaving rash, remembering the bit of the shave prep that does all the work during your shave is the thin film-like barrier between your skin and the blade.
SHAVE: Using a clean sharp blade, shave carefully in the direction of hair growth taking care around the sensitive neck area. Take it slow and steady, rinsing the razor frequently to prevent clogging and to ensure you get the most bristles in a single pass. For heavy stubble or several days’ growth focus on short strokes and thorough rinsing. Shaving with the grain, in the direction hair grows, will reduce the tug and pull and lessen the chance of irritation. If closeness is a problem, re-apply Oil and then shave across the grain (XTG) in a second pass.
Tip: Only a few missed bristles separate a good shave from a great shave. Use your finger tips to feel for any missed bristles before you finish and rinse.
PROTECT: After shaving, thoroughly rinse off with cool clean water as this helps close up the skin’s pores. Pat dry and protect skin immediately with a moisturiser or balm.
Wet Electric: After cleansing, massage in 1–2 pumps of Shave Oil and shave as normal.
Dry Electric: Massage 1–2 pumps of Oil onto clean dry skin. Wait 30 seconds, then shave as normal.
Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
Keep out of reach of children.
BEARD OIL INSTRUCTIONS:
Our Shave Oil also works as a highly effective conditioning Beard Oil. It helps prevent any unwanted itching or scratchy feeling and leaves your beard with a healthy shine.
Apply to a clean and towel dried beard. As a rule of thumb for a small beard you will need 1–2 pumps of Oil, a medium beard 3-5 pumps, and a big beard 6+. Don’t use too much, better to start with less, you can easily add more.
Pump Oil into your palms and then massage into beard, starting at the top and working down (with the grain), then working up from the bottom (against the grain) using your fingers like a large comb. Finish off by combing through holding the comb at 90 degrees to your beard so it fully penetrates the beard, not just the top layer. For more shine add a little more Oil.

Bought to try something new. This was perfectly good, and my skin tolerates it much better than foams or shaving soaps. Great for travel, as the bottle is small, and will last a while. The only thing I noticed was that the razor needed a bit more attention/rinsing to clear the stubble, but that's nothing to dock a star over. I'll keep using this and buy more when mine runs low.

This stuff is great. I've been using KOS oil for over 10 years now and I'd never use shaving cream again. I travel a lot and it's the best thing for just throwing into your kit. Small, light and easy to use.

I've been using the KOS oils for years, and simply wouldn't be without them.
I had sensitive skin and used to get really bad shaving rash, and a friend recommended I try this product. My shaving rash disappeared overnight.
I apply it to my face after the shower and let is sit while making a lather with my shaving brush and cream, I think giving it time to penetrate seems to help (with me it does anyway).
Some people seem to be able to shave using just this oil, but I certainly couldn't, I have to add some sort of lather on top.
If you suffer from shaving rash I would highly recommend you give this product a try.

I wished I'd tried this before. Have used it for both electric and blade shave. The burn of electric dry shaving just doesn't happen, and the oil lubricates the foil.

Much of the oil wasted on my hands or lost when dripping

Average product. For some reason, I get more nicks and cuts when using this product than i do if i use shaving gel.
