I purchased this product after loving other Baxter of California products. For the record, it does provide a great shave. The scent is nice, and it feels great on the face. My only criticism of the product is the lather. You have to use a lot of the product to get a decent amount of lather on the face. It is almost like a lotion. It will not lather properly in my badger hair shave brush. Instead, I have to use my hand to apply the product.
