BLOCMEN Aloe Vera Pre Shave Powder Stick

BLOCMEN powder sticks are applied to the skin before dry shaving and allow for an especially smooth shave. When dry shaving, it’s important to make sure the skin is completely dry to combat skin irritation. This particular BLOCMEN contains Aloe Vera, which soothes skin that suffers from irritation, such as razor burn. With its water-binding properties, it absorbs moisture, sweat and grease on the skin. If you’re not a fan of oil, then a powder stick might be the trick for you. They’re easy to use and leave the skin feeling fresh and revitalised, with added menthol.

Shavers customer’s rate the Aloe Vera Blocman as 4.8 out of 5

BLOCMEN Derma Pre Shave Powder Stick

Shavers customer reviews the Original Blocman as 4.9 out of 5

“First you need a good electric shaver. That's not so easy, but it is possible. Then you can add Blocmen and it converts a shave into a pleasure. I have used it for a few years when it was difficult to find. It is just the best - try shaving with and without it and you will need no further convincing.” Submitted by Fine Shave

King of Shaves Sensitive Advanced Pre Shave Oil

The King of Shaves is the world’s most advanced shaving oil. Oils soften the skin and work with the hair to make sure it sticks up ready for the blade. It gives a super smooth surface for the blade to glide over the hair preventing nicks and the blade from tugging. Its convenient pump-action dispenser can offer up to 100 shaves.

Shavers customers have reviewed the King of Shaves as 5 out of 5 stars

“Over 40 years of shaving and always have to keep going over and over the same heavy growth parts but this stuff going on first and it's one glide over and a perfect shave is the result. Skin being so much smoother is an added bonus I didn't expect. 10/5 for this one .” Submitted by Kennelman

“One of the reasons I've been using a wet razor of many years is the lack of pre electric preparations in the market. Now I've found this one there is no turning back” Submitted by Bob E
