If you're used to shaving cream in a can, this is going to be a refreshing change for you! I bought it because I loved the smell, kind of like a tropical suntan lotion scent, but I continued buying it because it works like a charm! At first I had trouble missing spots, because once you smooth it on (sparingly, of course) it sort of disappears. I have really sensitive skin, and using this product doesn't make my skin break out, dry out, or allow nicks or cuts. It reminds me of shaving with a lotion, and I have used it to dry shave spots I forgot and it works just as well! I won't be switching from this one!

I bought this based on reviews and find it is exactly what people stated. It smells great, if you use too much it will clog your razor quickly, a little (meaning a pea for an entire leg) goes a long way. Haven't had any issues with razor bumps or irritation and it rinses clean.

Perfect For Terribly Sensitive Skin

      Comments about Alba Botanica Moisturizing Shave Cream, Mango Vanilla, 1.5 fl oz:

      I tred the small size, because every product isn't perfect for everyone and I've used it several times before writing this review. I am absolutely impressed and satisfied. I have crazy sensitive skin so I can only shave my legs twice a week at the most. I have NOT gotten razon burn once after using this. Not even under my arms-- and that is impressive coming from me. I also love the fact that I can use it in the bath tub and I don't feel like I'm sitting in a tub of chemicals. A little goes a long way and I've not had the issue of it clogging the razor, just rinse after every other pass or so. Great for bikini line-- you can actually see what you're doing! Love it! Buying the big tube next time.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Moisturizing Shave Cream, Mango Vanilla, 1.5 fl oz:

      Thought I would try this more natural solution as opposed to the basic brands that I usually buy. It was too expensive, and almost sticky. It prevents the razor from going in a smooth motion up the leg. Then it leaves a film on the blades, so shave is not close. Not a fan.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Moisturizing Shave Cream, Mango Vanilla, 1.5 fl oz:

      I use this product for shaving my underarms and legs. I like the smell and that it leaves my skin feeling moisturized after I rinse it off. I don't like that it's invisible, which doesn't allow me to see where I've already shaved. The texture is also a little sticky and I feel that the razor doesn't glide as well as with other shaving creams.

        Comments about Alba Botanica Moisturizing Shave Cream, Mango Vanilla, 1.5 fl oz:

        I like nice smelling products for bath/shower time. I have dry skin and really hate shaving becuase of this. I found that this product moistured well while shaving, and doesn't clog the razor if you rinse it while you shave which is normally what you do anyway. I didn't have to use as much lotion after I shaved so I liked that too. I would buy this again!

            I have been using this product for years, I think under the [...] brand. I started using this as it's a nice tube for travel. I really like the smell and feel on my legs. I only took a star off because it does clog the razor up a bit.

              I have very sensitive skin and I use this for my legs and armpits. If you follow the directions and use a very thin layer, it works perfectly. Love it!

                Would work best if you didn't have a tough beard. Thought this would be good for using in colder weather to keep my face from drying out but if your stubblle is heavy at all it doesn't work very well.
