It's got a great kick in the nose from the essential oils, but leaves something to be desired on the face. It's somewhat tacky, even applied over wet skin.
More annoying, the combination of oils act to numb the skin. You could be shaving terribly (or with a bad razor) and not feel it until a few minutes after you rinse this off.
Sometimes a bracing shave oil is the right thing for that morning. This could work, but there are drugstore alternatives I've liked better.
