Having previously only used body wash for shaving, this shave gel is seriously a shaving grace! I like that it dispenses as a gel and then lathers up into a rich foam immediately, so a little goes a very long way. I like this better than just light shave foams, which I feel like I go through way too fast. You just need a dab of this and a can will last for months. It also smells wonderful and feels quite moisturizing, although I still always apply lotion after.
