Prep as a pre-shave

Postby lladets » Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:38 am

I don't know whether it is just my sense of smell.........When I use it with certain soaps and creams it seems to develop a faint smell of ammonia when lathering over the prep. Possibly a chemical reaction between the two? Has anyone else noticed this or is it all in my mind??
Comments would be interesting? :old :hmmm

Prep has that camphor / menthol type scent. It could be mixing up with the prep. When I use the prep as a pre shave I don't smear it on too thick. I use it very watery. I call it Prep-water :)

I also smear a very thin layer onto my wet face

The only way I use Prep is as an aftershave balm. I find it works so well like that.

There used to be a Prep shaving cream and soap from Italy which I loved.
