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.

      No better or worse than any other shave cream/gel/foam. It doesn't moisturize nearly as much as I hoped it would. It's hard to wash out of the razor blades.

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

        I am 67 with physical limitations and have tried many different shave creams for my legs. This is the best shave cream I have used! The Vanilla Mango fragrance is really nice! I don't want to have to spend a lot of time and care shaving my legs, and this cream protects so well. My only caveat is that it is does clog the razor, which requires more rinsing, but I will trade that any day for the great moisturizing and close shave with no nicks!

        " Too emollient"

          Maybe it's my fault because the name says it all but this shave cream was a little too emollient and thick for me. It clogged my razor, and made it extra greasy. Plus the smell is not very fragrant.

            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.

              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.
