The best shave oil I have used!

I have been using the Milkman Shave Oil (apply first) in combination with the Milkman Shave Gel ( apply second) to give me the best shave for a number of years! In past years I have tried many shave products but no where near as good the Milkman products.Even my wife who is very sensitive to smells such as perfumes etc likes the Milkman products that I use for shaving. Thanks Milkman!

Great for electric shavers

Using this with a braun really helped with my sensitive skin. No neck irritation from the first time I used it to now. Just make sure you clean your shaver frequently.

No Smell: No Customere Service!!

This product had absolutely no smell of any kind. Completely unlike the sample I have had at my local barber. I can only suspect it was a manufacturing fault with a batch. I asked the question on email and received NO reply. I then asked for a refund and this was given but still no actual personal reply to my initial email. Really poor customer service. Will not be buying Milkman products again!

Hi there, we aren't sure what more we could have done here. We responded to your initial email within 3 hours. You ignored the message and followed up with an aggressive email a couple days later. We then issued an instant refund even though the batch has been checked and there was absolutely no issue with the fragrance.
