Pre-electric shave oil

I shave with a blade about 40% of the time, and the rest with an electric razor (Remington TCT).  When I use the electric, I use no pre-shave oil, lotion or any other goo; I use it by itself.  

Does anyone here use a pre-electric shave oil before they use an electric razor?  I looked at a few by Anthony for Men, Lab Series and others this weekend but couldn't decide if it was worth it.  The shave I get without anything is reasonably close and not terribly irritating so it's not urgent for me; nevertheless, if any of you were big fans of it (or could explain to me how it improves or facilitates your shave), I'd be curious to know.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't used an electric razor for about 3 years now, but when I did, I put some baby power over my face. This made the shave considerably less irritating, especially on my neck. You should try this at least once. I've never used the shave oil, so I really can't comment on it.
