Have tried Kiehl's hand salve and enjoyed it. Was nice to see this product in the Nov '17 box. I tried it out for my next shave and was pleasantly surprised. I had been using Harry's shaving cream and find, that while it smells nice, it doesn't provide a non-burning sensation that this Kiehl's Shave cream offers.
It stated on there that no water was needed but I did try it out during my shower so can't put any input in on a dry face shave. I would recommend this product for shaving.
