Unlike other reviews that said they needed to use a lot, I did not. I found you can use the smallest amount and I did NOT even get any razor burn, which always happens with other creams and lotions. A little goes a long way! I will NEVER shave without this again! After years of nicks and the dreaded underarm razor burn I have finally found a fix. I know it may not work for everyone, but if you haven't found anything that works so far, please give this a shot. I do not have course hair, so this might make a difference. The smell is awesome and the cream left my skin soft. I will be purchasing this again (and again!), as well as the other scents. I felt it was a GREAT deal for the price.

Yuck!! This stuff is the worst. I thought I knew what to expect after reading other reviews (use sparingly; doesn't foam, obviously) but boy was I disappointed. It doesn't allow the razor to glide smoothly across the skin, so didn't provide me with a close shave and I ended up with razor burn. Seriously, I've had better shaves using hair conditioner or plain soap when I've run out of my regular shaving foam . Even with using a small amount it gunked up my razor. I would give it 0 stars if that were an option. This stuff will be going straight in the garbage.

    Absolute perfection. I wouldn't change a thing about this product. Goes on smoothly, shaves off cleanly, never feels greasy or heavy, leaves my legs moistened.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Cream Shave, Mango Vanilla, 8 fl oz:

      I have used this product for several years and always make sure I have an extra one on hand. The Mango Vanilla scent is refreshing and tropical - very beachy . Use sparingly and it will not clog - it's not like the foam sprays, it takes very little. My legs come out smooth, moisturized, and without nicks; it's the only one I'll use for legs.

            I have very dry skin that's easily irritated by shaving, and this cream completely solved the problem! My skin is left moisturized, rash-free, and smelling wonderful. I do notice that I have to rinse the razor more frequently to prevent clogging, but that's a very minor price to pay for such amazing results.

                My husband was a fan of this product and I was a fan of how smooth and nice smelling he was after using it. But something changed in the formula, it still smells great, but now it won't foam, so I get a cranky husband rather than a smooth happy one.

                I use this product to shave with a Gillette Fusion razor and my husband uses it with his safety razor. Both of us have sensitive skin, and this is product is rare in that it smells amazing but does not cause irritation for either of us. It does clog the blade in my case but rinses out easily in the shower. Additionally, this cream is very moisturizing. It does not lather and works best if used sparingly.

                    This was probably the worst shaving cream I've ever used. Not impressed at all. Did not glide smoothly for a close shave because it clogs the razor up. Save your money and buy something else.

                    This shave cream smells amazing! It works best if you use a very small amount. It's also different from other shave creams in that it doesn't lather at all - just apply a thin film like a moisturizer and shave. It does clog the razor quickly but rinses off easily, so this doesn't bother me. I have very sensitive skin and was wary of using a scented product for shaving, but it doesn't seem to cause problems. It doesn't dry out my skin, either.

                      Great smell, and great clean shave. It says to use just a small amount and you REALLY should. Spread it like you're putting on lotion. Otherwise it will clog the razor. And using a tiny bit makes it last a lot longer!
