I absolutely love this product. I'm lucky in that I have a fair complexion and I only have to shave perhaps once a week, but when it's time to shave, it's time to shave. This pre-shave gel does an outstanding job softening my whiskers and moisturizing my skin before the razor touches it. I find that the more I use it, the less shaving irritation I have and, even though I don't usually have issues with "shaving bumps" (I get them sometimes), this product seems to reduce the frequency with which they occur. This gel has a very pleasing scent and doesn't feel greasy or oily. Don't take my word for it, though. Try it out and see for yourself.
