I tried this oil when I was looking for an all natural facial moisturizer. Before this I had tried extra virgin olive oil, and after this I tried avocado oil. All three oils had the exact same result on my skin when I used them as a moisturizer. My skin looked glowy within the first couple of days of using them, and then it became really dry and flaky. That was just a long explanation as to why I recommend you not try oils as a facial moisturizer. I believe the drying out of my skin is because all of the oils have natural astringent properties. This oil is however great for removing eye makeup and for using as a facial cleanser. Apply it to dry skin and gently massage all over for a couple of minutes and then place a warm wet wash cloth over your face. Allow the cloth to cool and then gently wipe the oil off. Oil dissolves oil, so this is a natural and effective way to cleanse your face. And the antioxidants in the oil will help to repair and protect your skin from environmental aggressors.
Awful, just awful. Within minutes of putting this cream on my face began to burn and my skin turned red. And I'm not crazy about the scent either, it just smells odd. Pass on this product, even my drugstore Ponds is better.

I ADORE this shave cream! I like the dry skin formula better than the formula for sensitive skin because it feels more soothing and nourishing to my skin. And the dry skin formula is still brilliant for sensitive skin, which I have. This has never given me irritation. After I shave with this cream and my Venus razors my skin is always super smooth without any bumps. This is my new must have shave cream, they better not stop making it or change the formula! I'd be really bummed if they did.
