Milkman shave oil - my new go-to shave oil.

So happy with this find. I've been using a great product for years, King of Shaves alphaoil shave oil, cooling menthol. However found it not stocked by the supermarket any more. So went searching elsewhere and gave this product a go, especially as it was Australian made and on my local Sunshine Coast. Excellent, even on a cold water shave, it's my go-to now and look at the ingredients...all natural, great smell, great feel, great shave. I don't have a beard but sometimes go 3 - 4 days till I shave and it's a pleasure using this product not a chore. Haven't tried with an electric shaver but judging by some of the other reviews it seems to work well. Thanks for this excellent product Milkman dudes 😊.

Shaving oil I can not shave without mow

Generally I have dry, easily irritated skin, always problematic day after shaving. Applying shaving oil before I shave ( with Phillips electric shaver) makes skin feel smooth and well moisturized with almost no irritations

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.
