Originally bought this for my father who always used powder when shaving with an electric razor. The first time we used this on his face we were both amazed at the difference in shaving...much more comfortable (smooth feel)...even if he skipped a couple of days and we'd have longer hairs to contend with.

When my dad passed, I gave my hubby the spare new container of the Remington FaceSaver. The first time he used it he was hooked! He said it made electric shaving much more comfortable, he had fewer breakouts and it didn't clog his electric razor. My hubby had always used aftershave lotions but not a pre-shave. Needless to say, he is now totally hooked! In fact, the next time I ordered from Drugstore.com he said "Don't forget to get my Remington Face Saver...in fact, go ahead and get me two this time!"

There is a very mild scent to this powder stick but it is quite pleasant, kinda of a "clean" smell, and doesn't linger or clash with cologne or deodorant scents. Hubby doesn't like strong smells and he is content with the scent.

I had higher hopes for this product. I shave after my shower and the residual moisture on my face causes the electric razor to drag. For a long time, I have used regular baby powder to solve this problem. I had hoped that this product would somehow be formulated for the task. It certainly is a convenient package and it avoid some of the inevitable mess of dealing with powder. But, in practice, it does not work any better and may work a little less well than baby powder.

        This product helps to get the hairs on the neck cut, which was difficult before. Will have to see how long it lasts.

            I've been using this product for at least 15 years now, and in general I love it. However, over the years they've reformulated it to be softer, more powdery. I believe the motivation was to have you use the product faster, so you buy more often. The result is that sometimes chunks of talc flake off the stick. What used to last me for 6 months is now used in a month or two. Still, it's a good product. I just wish they'd go back to their original formula.

            Totally changed my shaving experience. I use a top-of-the-line Braun, and haven't been totally happy with the closeness of the shave. I'd normally have to go over certain spots on my face several times, and that still didn't produce a close shave. I tried the Face Saver on a whim, and, wow... what a difference! My shave is super close and way more comfortable. After buying one Face Saver, I went back and bought 8 (can't beat the sale price). I recommend it with enthusiasm.

                I have used the Remington Shave Powder for years. It is great for drying up the grease and moisture on your face for an electric shaver. I highly recommend this product.
