      I think the key to using this product is to use much less than you think you should. I use between a pea or a garbanzo bean's worth for each leg. If you go easy on the product it works really well. If you use too much it will clog your razor. Given that you only have to use a tiny amount, this product is a real bargain and I'm glad I made the switch from the steel-can shave gels and creams. I think I've been using one container for 4-5 months. (Granted, I shave less in winter) I'm saving money and producing much less waste in terms of empty shave cans/bottles.

      It also smells great and doesn't seem to dry my skin.

      SCENT: Although this says coconut lime, it has a strong peppermint scent with a hint of coconut and lime (peppermint it IS one of the ingredients in this shave cream.) I like the smell of mint so this is not a problem. APPLICATION: It doesn't foam up even a little bit, even if you rub it vigorously between your hands - truly a cream so you seem to have to use more than other products. It does go on smoothly.
      SHAVE: Not bad, not good. I did get a clean shave on my legs but I didn't feel (or look) like I got a close shave under my arms or my bikini area. It also seemed a little harder to rinse from the razor. AFTER: My legs aren't even close to dry and they are smooth, but can someone pass me some REAL shave gel for my underarms and bikini area? Would I use it again? I'm going to use the rest of my sample I found at a local store but I probably won't buy this again which is why I gave it 2 stars. ALBA is a good brand overall, but I just wasn't impressed with this.

        this is a great creamy shave gel and you don't need much to get a nice close shave. it doesn't really smell like coconut lime though...more of an overall herbal scent.

              I agree with the reviews that recommend just using a pea-sized dollop of the product at a time. You don't need much and it produces a clean, smooth shave. I just love the smell of the coconut and lime. I'm very sensitive to fragrances and I find this one to be refreshing.

                    If you want a more coconut scent, try the Mango Vanilla - it smells a lot like coconut. Use sparingly for proper use. I get a clean shave every time, and it moisturizes my very dry skin in the process.

                    Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Coconut Lime, 8 oz:

                    I was looking for something that I could use for shaving while I am deployed. The showers are not comfortable or large by any means so I needed something I could slap on and shave. This product works well for this. It goes on easy and a little bit goes a long way. This does not foam up or lather but provides a nice barrier on your skin for the razor to glide. It leaves your legs smooth and protects from nicks & cuts. The only negative thing is that this in no way, shape or form smells remotely like coconut or lime but like peppermint. It also provides a minty, coolness while shaving which is nice. So if you aren't completely hung up by the smell of this product (or lack of...what is the advertised scent) this product is great for shaving and especially in confined spaces.

                      Hated this stuff! Disliked the smell, the weirdly slick feel, and it burned my skin. I kept trying to convince myself the burning sensation was "natural" or "medicinal," but no - the burning was my skin pleading "GET IT OFF ME." Finally listened and chucked the half-full tube in the trash. Coconut lime? What was I thinking?

                          I love this companies products and have been using this shave cream for years. It leaves your skin smooth and not greasy. It is reasonibly priced and I like the scent too. You do not need a lot of product to get the job done.

                              This product is great. It doesnt irritate my skin like shave gels and my favorite thing about it is it will never leave a rust ring on your bathtub! The only thing wrong with it is that because its so thick it is hard to rinse off my razor with my soft water pressure. It is so thick and moisturizing! A great scent and tingly feeling, overall a great shave!
