    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!

    Does not provide close shave for my face

    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.

          This product is great...you only need a thin film, it smells excellent (minty!), and I get a better shave. No nicks or cuts...

            I have very sensitive skin, that can be very dry, but also some products over moisturize and clog my pores. Alba created a great product that actually agrees with my skin. I love the smell and it helps shaving go so much smoother. Ever since I started using it, I refuse to use anything else.

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

              I use this lotion to shave 2 or 3 times per week, alternating with an electric razor. While I like the moisturizing aspects and the closeness of the shave I get with it, the stinging is not pleasant between the time I apply it and the time I remove it. Maybe it is the mint, next time I am going to try a different flavor.

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

              The end result is okay, but I don't find it's a good experience. The cream is not slippery enough that the razor glides nicely and it feels like it drags across my skin. It is also difficult to tell where I've shaved so I end up missing spots. I prefer both Kiss My Face and King of Shaves products to this one.

                This product does not cling to the skin/beard prior to shaving. I have a thick beard and sensitive skin, so it's important to have a product to apply and let it soften my beard. This does not fulfill the hopes. I cannot recommend this product.

                Best shaving product I have found. A small amount goes a long way and it's so creamy! Legs feel smooth and the shave is so close and razor glides so easily across your legs it doesn't even feel like shaving! Great product, and the price is right!

                  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.

                    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.
