My husband borrowed this from me when he ran out of his usual shave gel - the usual, everyday kind in a metal can. He has sensitive skin and has used every variation of shave gel/cream out there. After he used my Alba shave cream he threw away all of his gels and lotions. This product is more then gentle for everyday use. There is absolutely no skin irritation. It easily and effortlessly softens his beard prior to shaving with no prep work and gives him a closer shave than he has ever had with any other product. He's pretty particular on how things smell, and this has no medicinal, flowery, or "manly" overwhelming scent like other products. He says it tingles slightly, but in a refreshing way, not in a crazy my face is burning way.

I keep a tube in the shower for shaving my legs. It moisturizes my legs better then other shave creams. Another thing I have noticed is that a little goes a long way! In fact, the less you use, the better it works. I have had virtually no knicks or cuts when I've used this and my husband says the same. The cream is rich, smooth, and covers easily. It doesn't clog up my razor and rinses easily. On top of it all, the ingrediants are all natural, not tested on animals, organic, eco-friendly and are top quality. A low cost, high quality product with a conscience. My family will never buy another brand of shave cream ever again!

I have been using this for several weeks and I am disappointed with it. The directions say it should be used sparingly but I cannot seem to find the right amount to use to get a close shave. It does have a very nice minty scent which I like and it does leave my face with a clean, tingly feeling. But if I can't get a close shave it defeats the whole purpose.

I'm also not thrilled that it is completely transparent when applied, although that alone would not be a deal-breaker for me. I think it also dulls/clogs my razor but that could be because I have to shave over areas of my face several times (and against the grain which I normally don't do) in an attempt to get a better shave.

I think I will switch back to using Cremo Shave Cream.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Aloe Mint, 8 oz:

    My husband uses this product everyday, in the shower. He is always clean shaven and also has sensitive skin. I have noticed a big difference in his skin since using this product. He is on his 4th tube and I don't think he will switch.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Aloe Mint, 8 oz:

      I use this when shaving my legs - really keeps them protected from razor burn and cuts. I've tried many other products over the years and this one is my favorite. The Aloe Mint works the best for my dry sensitive skin. Plus I like the smell.

            Pros: Does not irritate. Gives a close shave. Leaves skin soft.
            Cons: Mint fragrance is a bit strong. Clear cream makes it difficult to see what has been shaved and what has not. Rinsing does not easily remove residue (feels greasy).
            I'm still looking for a better product.

              This stuff is great! It is seriously the best shaving cream I've ever used. It's more like a shaving balm. It goes on clear so you can see everything. I really feel like I'm protected from my razor when I use this, and feel nice and smooth afterward. It has mint in it so it leaves my legs feeling fresh and kind of tingly. Highly recommended.

              Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Aloe Mint, 8 oz:

              I was disappointed with this product after reading the rave reviews. The cream does not lather on very well and you have to use a lot to even get a thin film to cover your legs. I found that I also had to be careful with the razor, as it did not seem that the cream provided enough protection. It's too bad because I want to start using natural products.

                This is the only Shaving Cream that doesn't irritate my dry, sensitive skin. It's so soothing and I always get a soft, clean shave. Plus it's natural and doesn't contain harmful chemicals. Won't use anything else!
