If you're looking to step up your shaving routine, look no further than shaving oils. We love shaving oils because they moisturize your face and help prep it so you can master the perfect shave. Shaving oils can also help you get your closest shave yet.

Here are our recommendations for shaving oil that hydrates and moisturizes your skin. 

Pacific Shaving Co's Natural Shaving Oil

We love this oil because it might be tiny, but it's super powerful and full of essential oils. This is sensitive skin-friendly and can used for men and women. This shaving oil applies clear, so you don't have to worry about accidentally knicking yourself. It also moisturizes and conditions your face. The key ingredients in this are vitamin E, aloe vera, and avocado oil. Vitamin E will nourish your skin, and aloe vera will soothe your skin and help with redness. Avocado oil can help you stay hydrated while minimizing your inflammation.  

Leaf Shave Oil

This formula is unscented, vegan, and not tested on animals. It softens your hair and keeps it moisturized while protecting your skin. Another feature we love is that it promises to help reduce irritation and doesn't leave you greasy. This contains sunflower, grapeseed, and jojoba oils to moisturize, hydrate, and soothe your skin. It also uses sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and rosehip oil to calm your skin and help your skin fight inflammation and hyperpigmentation. 

Van der Hagen Shave Oil 

Other than adding hydration to your skin, it also can help reduce ingrown hairs and razor bumps. We also love that it uses natural ingredients and can be used pre or post-shave. It can also help reduce irritation and redness.  

Woody's Shave Oil

Woody's made our list because it is super affordable and helps hydrate and nourish your skin while giving you a close shave. This product helps prevent razor burns and uses a lot of natural ingredients. Some of the key ingredients in these are avocado oil, evening primrose oil, and aloe barbadensis leaf extract, which can help hydrate and protect your skin. 

Anthony Pre-Shave + Conditioning Beard Oil

We love this product because it works as a pre-shave oil and also as a beard oil! It's also cruelty-free and allergy-tested, so you can use it no matter your skin type. It helps to prevent irritation and softens your beard and your skin. It uses tea tree oil, olive oil, calendula oil, and vitamin E to help hydrate, nourish, and smooth your skin. It also uses rosemary and basil essential oils, so it smells as good as it feels.
