good for an extremely close shave!


works well, and provides protection while still achieving a close shave. awesome!

Don't use alone


I don't see this as a "stand alone" shave. I use it with the pre-shave and it works well. It is also overpriced, and too small for the home. Good travel size, but if you want it at home you'd have to buy a couple of them or keep reordering. At this price, for this little, I don't think I'd order it again.

good for sensitive skin and spots


my husband has sensitive dry skin and loves the moisturizing shaving cream but this is even better. he can get a very close shave that lasts longer and leaves his skin smooth and moisturized. no more razor bumps!!

Its messy. I dont know if I was using it correct .

Los Angeles, CA, USA




I never splurge on a shaving product, but this oil is amazing. After I was given a sample pack in a retail store I was hooked. I have very sensitive skin and a thick tough beard. I simply apply a few drops of this oil after a damp warm cloth or washing my face and use a disposable razor . Closest shave ever and my skin feels like a newborn baby. The smell is incredible.



Best of the Best.


I shave both head and face every day. Normal skin and tough beard. The oil as a prep with shave cream over it and then Shave with a 5 blade razor. This Oil gives me that TV star smooth face and head for 2 days in a row afterward. During the week or date night it provides that "Sunday fresh feeling" that you get after a 3 day growth spert of non-shaving. Bottom line. Very pricy but smell and efficacy is extraordinary. Love this product !

Columbus, OH, USA




I was happy to order another product from Dermalogica, I use many of their products. Based on other peoples reviews I ordered the shave oil. Not good, really pulls like shaving with only a wet face! I have a light beard and shave every day, I even started with a new triple blade. Also the oil makes a mess of the sink. Nice scent, you do not need any other after shave product.



The best ever...


Purchased early in the year and use when I want the absolute BEST shave ever. The razor no matter how old glides on your face with this product like no other. I've used other shaving oils and they don't - it blows them away!!! Completely recommend if you are looking for the best shave ever...

Buffalo, NY


The best shaving product I have ever used.


I have extremely tender skin but a beard like barbed wire,This is the only product I have used that will give me a very clean shave and still leave my skin intact. Before I was introduced to Dermologica Close Shave Oil I had to chose between a close shave and varying degrees of skin irritation or unmarked skin but a three o'clock shadow at noon. Now I can even go days between shaves and still get an extremely close shave with my face being left quite un-irritated and smooth.



Best Shaving Experience


I have sensitive skin, and frequently experience skin irritation when shaving with creams and lotions. When I first read about shave oils, Dermalogica close shave oil was the first that I could find. Lucky me! I've now been using this product for three years, and I'll never go back to creams or lotions. This truly gives you the best shaving experience.

Is this product now no longer made? I really like It!


Hello, I apologize that item has been discontinued. There is no replacement at this time. Thanks


Can you use this shave oil with an electric shaver? I know mine is for both wet or dry use


I don't think so. There are better ways to use an electric shaver, but no electric shaver is as good as any blade of any configuration.
