Facial oils are everywhere these days, but Perfectionist Oil is in a league of its own. Meticulously formulated for one purpose: giving you an unparalleled shaving experience for your face. Say goodbye to basic dermaplaning and hello to oilplaning, setting a new standard for smoothness.

Perfectionist is the trailblazer in the world of oilplaning—no more shaving your face on dry skin risking irritation and sensitivity post shave. This luxurious oil is designed to serve as a shield, helping your razor glide with precision and less jeopardy of damaging the skin. Its unique blend of soothing and hydrating ingredients help seal in moisture, which helps in stabilize and fortify your freshly-exfoliated skin long after you’re done.

Beyond shaving, Perfectionist also functions as luxurious facial oil, helping to lock in moisture while keeping environmental stressors and other bad things out. Use in the AM as a pre-treatment for a facial roller, gua sha, or massage, or in your evening routine (we love mixing 2 drops with Hydrating Lotion!) to let the antioxidants and fatty acids soak in overnight, helping skin feel remarkably soft and supple.

Using Perfectionist

How to Use as a Shave Oil: We recommend oilplaning at night so it's not immediately followed by makeup or sun exposure. Start by double cleansing then prepping your skin with our Toning Pads (II). This helps prevent breakouts and sets the stage for a smooth and soothing shave. Apply one dropper full of Perfectionist liberally to your face. Shave slowly in an upward or downward motion using short, gentle strokes. Post shave, rinse with cool water, pat dry and apply Overachiever and Hydrating Lotion.

How to Use as a Facial Oil: Apply one dropper full (spread evenly across the face) as a base for facial roller, gua sha or massage.
