Question

Can I use preshave lotion to prepare my skin for shaving?

Answer

Yes, you can safely use an alcohol-based preshave lotion. Use of an alcohol-based preshave lotion may, however, affect the appearance of your shaver. The preshave lotion will not have any effect on the inside of the shaver or on its performance.

Note: If you use an alcohol-based preshave lotion, always wash your hands before you pick up the shaver.

  1. Spread the preshave over your beard.
  2. Allow the preshave to be absorbed by the beard hairs.
  3. Then shave as you are accustomed to.

The purpose of alcohol-based preshaves is to dry out the hairs and make them stand upright so that they can be shaved off more easily.
