This product is amazing! Every other shaving cream that I have tried (and that's a lot!) have all made my legs sooooo dry. Even the "moisturizing" ones would leave me horribly dry and itchy. This cream, however, is wonderful! No more dryness or itchiness after shaving and the feeling stays with me all day. Be forewarned, though.....it's NOT a shaving cream that foams. It's more like a lotion that smooths over your skin. And as for clogging up your razor - yes, this does happen but the back of the tube does give a suggestion to rinse the razor often and I suspect that is because of this clogging issue. The fact that this is a wonderfully natural product that keeps my legs smooth and soft all day and smells great makes this a product that I will be continuing to get for a long time :)

The only shave gel that does not irritate my super sensitive skin, and one of the few that I've found that doesn't contain SLS, SLES or cocamidopropyl betaine. It does go on clear, and it is more like a gel than a cream, but it leaves my skin super soft and I get a really close shave.

It smells nice and is a good price but I wont ever buy it again. Even with using very little and following the directions I found it completely clogs the razor which is really annoying. I want to shave quickly! Also, because it is clear, I found it hard to see where I had already shaved and where I might be missing little spots...for that reason I will return to using something more foamy/white in colour.

I have been using this shaving cream (which I would say is more a gel-like-lotion) for a month now. I usually buy a different natural shaving cream which I love, but this was cheaper so I thought I would give it a go.
I am very disappointed in this product and am quite surprised by the positive reviews. The only positive thing I can say is it smells wonderful. The gel formula is clear and does not turn foamy so it is hard to see where I have applied. It gets stuck in my razor and so I must hit it constantly against my shower wall to try and unclog it. I have gone through so many more razors this month because the gel gets stuck in it and dries. It isn't very moisturizing either. I would never buy again.

I would not say that this shaving cream has a "creamy" consistency. It's more of a thick syrupy consistency. Also I would not go so far as to say it gunks up razors but it does seem to leave a bit of a film behind because it does not seem to glide over skin as well after a few uses. You definitely don't want to use too much. Not my favorite product but will probably buy again because it's cheaper than other eco-friendly brands.
