My face is smoother 12 hours later than it usually is right after a shave. I never realized I could get a shave this close without visiting a barber. Using this product, I was able to actually shave against the grain, instead of having to go with the grain. I thought for sure the only way to avoid painful shaving was a less then close shave. Turns out I was just using the wrong shaving cream.

I think people complain about the clogging because they're using way too much. Not actually seeing the shaving cream on your face took a bit of getting used to, but I actually prefer it now. It makes me realize just how much junk I was spreading all over my face.

Tips for best use:
-shower
-dampen your face with warm water
-spread a small amount (nickel size) on your face
-shave
-be irresistible to touch by your wife/girlfriend

This product has a nice fresh scent and only a little product goes a long way. BUT, it clogs the razor very easily. I find myself needing to take a lot more time shaving due to the fact that I have to wipe the razor and rinse it thoroughly after every sweep up my leg. It is difficult to get the perfect quantity out of the tube at once. I do find it moisturizing, but not worth the extra effort. I usually LOVE ALBA, but this one is not a keeper.

        Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Coconut Lime, 1.5 oz:

        I bought coconut lime for travel, and the first time I used it, I was shocked to find that my chin went numb as soon as it touches the product. I thought that it was jetlag so I waited two days to use it again - and it happened again. I cannot believe an all natural product can be so strong. My face loses senses once the thing is on it. I had to threw it away.

            Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Coconut Lime, 1.5 oz:

            This is the first time I've used a shave cream like this (not out of one of those normal aerosol Skintimate type cans), and I was pleasantly surprised. When the description says moisturizing, it's telling the truth. I normally have to put lotion on my legs immediately after shaving (I didn't realize the old normal shave cream was so dehydrating), but my legs still feel moisturized.
            The only problem is that using this could get expensive. I purchased the smaller tube (1.5oz), and can already tell that it may only last a maximum of 5 shaves (underarms, bikini & legs)...not sure though since I haven't finished the bottle

              I've seen some negative reviews about this clogging the razor. I think it may be that some people use more because you can not see it like you can with a standard shave gel. You only need a small bit and as long as you shave methodically, I don't find a problem. I use a little in shower shea scrub to make sure I stay moisturized anyway. That might work for you too. My underarms are sensitive and I use a little more there, but still not enough to clog my razor or chafe my skin. One wonderful thing about this is it is so non messy, you can touch up your legs before going out without the "traditional" mess. I love it!

                      It's got a great scent and has a refreshing tingle. Unfortunately, it provides very little lubrication, and doesn't give a close shave. I've found myself having to reapply the product a second time and shave again to get a close shave. It's sort of like shaving with hand lotion.

                        I used this on my boyfriend a few times while shaving his face. It took some time to get the hang of how to use it best. It has to be applied sparingly to get the best effect, but it was still difficult to get a good shave. It also ended up clogging the razor after two or three strokes. But it had a great fresh smell and washed off easily. Overall, we will be sticking to regular foam shaving cream as opposed to lotion.
