I've bought this shave cream several times when I could catch a sale at Ulta, otherwise it's just too expen$ive...but it works good. As a shave cream, I really like it. It is moisturizing, helps get a close, smooth shave, smells great if you like coconut, and it's natural, which is kinda rare in shave cream. As far as the inhibitor aspect, I'd say it's mediocre. Yes, after about 3 weeks of use, I noticed less hair in the same time span. But it's not a miracle or anything. I still must shave my underarms daily, and I never shave more than every other day, but now it feels like a fresh shave longer. So, it's worth it if I can find it on sale. Not so much if it's full price or if I'm broke.
