I was impressed with this product - it might not necessarily give me a closer shave, but it smells amazing and leaves a cool, soothing feeling on my face. As I begin to shave, that coolness really helps soothe my skin almost immediately.
It's a face scrub, so it's gritty, but the grit is very gentle. In fact, it's so gentle that I wouldn't recommend it as your face scrub, but as a nice mid-week refresher for your whole face. Again, it smells amazing, so you have that going for you as well.
