Who uses a pre-shave routine before applying their main lather before shaving?

I've never used one but might give a pre-shave lotion a try, just as I have a bit of money left after Christmas, and see if i really do get a more comfortable shave. Sometimes i get spots and breakouts but nothing too wild.

Gonna give the Edwin Jagger pre-shave lotion a go i think, oils clog your razor up I've read so not using them!
