Eucalyptus Extract / Eucalyptus Oil 

Eucalyptus Extract is an aromatic oil native to Australia. It has been regarded by both Aborigines and European settlers as a general cure-all in herbal remedies. The pale, volatile liquid is taken from fresh eucalyptus leaves, and the most important component of the liquid is Eucalyptol. Used to refresh skin. Produces an aromatic odor.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary Oil, extracted from the leaf of the Rosemary plant, contains a variety of Amino Acids, Caffaic Acid, Rosemary Acid and Apigenen. It has been shown to contain strong antioxidant activity. It is also utilized for its fragrance in a wide variety of skin care products.

Spearmint Leaf Oil

Used by the ancients to scent their bath water and as a restorative, spearmint has made its way up through the centuries as a useful culinary and medicinal herb. Its therapeutic properties resemble that of peppermint, it is a stimulant, however, spearmint’s effects are gentler and its taste is sweeter. Aromatherapists use spearmint to energize the mind and body. A few drops in bath water has a refreshing effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by So Fresh and So Clean Clean! I forgot how much I love this product. I ran out and boy did I pay for it. I am so spoiled with how soft & warm your beard gets after applying the oil . Now shaving without it for that week or two , was like going back to the dark ages.. why?? Men if you haven't tried this product and you have a thick beard .. then you should try this product. 5/23/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crucial for razor bump free shaves This is the best shaving oil on the market. No camphor or menthol, and quality oils. Just enough rosemary and spearmint to give a bit of a pleasant scent. Works well under a shave cream, and won't thin out your cream. Helps the razor glide, especially if you apply and allow to soak in and soften up your beard. My only concern is that it takes a little more of this , as opposed to the thicker oils out there. It's a good value , so if you use a little more, you're probably still ahead. 5/22/14

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have been moving from using a modern razor towards using a safety razor. Regardless of which razor and soap I use I always prep with 31-0 Close-Shavers. It opens my skin up, raises the hair, smells great and really improves my shave. Incredible product. It really allowed me to experiment with my safety razor minimizing slips. When I got back to the modern razor the 31-O provides the modern razor with an added personal touch. Also helps prevent razor burn and has really cleared my skin up post-shave. Highly recommended no matter how you shave. 9/13/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My husband has very thick hair and is prone to ingrown hairs and razor burn but once he started useing the kiehls products, he has had great results!! 8/30/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised! I have used "high-end" pre shave oils in the past from other companies and have found that although I like the effect that they give I don't wind up using them for two reasons. 1.) Most of them are abnormally thick and require me to have to rewash my face w/ cleanser after shaving to get all of the excess product off. That's not really good to do considering you just stripped your skin of a lot of its natural moisture from shaving. 2.) Most of the ones I have tried come in a glass bottle and you usually have to pour it out to get the product out. This can be dangerous being that the product is used with wet skin and hands. Wet hands+glass packaging=bad idea. Well not this one! Initially I was concerned by the minty scent, often times products containing menthol can dry out or irritate the skin. This one doesn't actually use menthol to get that scent, it uses peppermint oil which my skin personally like a lot better. It's only slightly thick compared to the others I have tried and doesn't contain mineral oil. I have been using the Blue Eagle Brushless Shaving Cream from Kiehls for years and didn't think I would need this product because the cream works so well on its own, well this product works with the Blue Eagle SOOOO WELLL! Usually I would have to apply more cream after the first initial shave to make another pass to get a perfect baby smooth shave. When I use this oil only one pass is needed for a perfect shave. I also notice that my facial hair doesn't feel as tough when it starts to grow in...not sure if it is because of this though. P.S. FYI I have VERY oily acne prone skin and this didn't break me out, 3/4/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Pre-shave oil on the market I've tried just about every Pre-shave oil on the market and hands down this is the best. Compared up to the likes of Art of Shaving, Anthony logistics, and jack black just to name a few. I have paired this stuff up with C.O. Bigelo shave cream and it's like ice skating on your face. I have not had the opportunity to try it with any Kiehls creams to date due to inavalability in my area. The oil has nice consistency at first, pleasant aroma, and goes in very nicely without making your skin super oily. I normally allow it to set long enough to later up shave cream. With the addition of shave cream your going to have one of the smoothest shaves ever. After you rinse your face will be nice and smooth with no oily feeling. Top it off with the kiehls shave balm. My wife cannot keep her hands of my face and face it gentleman, this is why we do this morning ritual. 1/23/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the Bomb! I used to use, and still do occasionally and do recommend highly, the other Close Shavers shaving creams, until this came out a year or so ago. It's totally the bomb! I heard about it in Details or some other men's magazine, and knew that shaving oil always got good reviews, but Kiehl's never had one. But once they did, man I was first in line! I can shave daily M-F with this and have no issue come Friday w/ a burned face. 8/31/10
