Boots ElectricPre Shave Freshwood
After trying dozens I have always used an expensive International Brand before. This is at least a match and in fact both sit on my shelf now, but its the Boots version I reach for!

Should have discovered this years ago
Unbelievably good - it's that simple!
I've electric shaved for years, both my face and whole head. Trying various shave oils and often just water, the shave has still been, on occasion, sore during and after - particulalrly on my barbed wire like bears hair!
I tried this Pre-Shave without expecting much; but was blown away immediatly by how good it is. Shaver glides over all stubble effortlassly, and even concentrating on one area does not cause irritation. Shaver is happier, and scalp (and face) are left smooth and clear.
Only one minor critisim - the nice perfume is quite strong, so to avoid this I shave before I shower - tones it down.
Buy this if you electri shave and you'll be much happier!

Why pay more?
I recently switched to electric shaving and, after initially disappointing results, decided to follow the advice on various forums to use a pre-shave. When I looked around I was horrified at the premium brand prices and my wife found this Boots own brand product which has been perfect for the job. I would echo a previous post regarding the maybe overpowering scent but I have adopted the same solution of showering after shaving. It also helps to hold your breath for a few seconds to avoid the worst of the alcohol fumes :o). This is the only reason it's not 5 star for quality as the value is unbeatable.
