Alba Botanica® Very Emollient Cream Shave Mango Vanilla -- 8 oz
great shave cream
I switched to this shave cream in 2007 and have never looked back. I even use the travel size versions when backpacking or on the road. You will love this stuff. I believe that it works just as well for women.

My husband loves this shaving cream and only uses this now with his razor for a close, smooth shave. It also smells heavenly!

Great Shave, but Very Messy
This shave product smells good and works very well as a shave product. I have very sensitive skin, and this worked great (no breakouts, was moisturizing, etc.).
If someone is new to more natural shave options, they should know that is is a non-foaming, very thick and slightly sticky lotion.
The problem with the product is that it makes SUCH a mess, both in the shower and in my razor. It's bothersome enough on those fronts that I will not purchase this product again.
The ingredient list is great and it works well, but the gunk and mess outweighs the benefits.
I also tried the Coconut Lime version of this product with the same results.

Not my favorite product
It works okay but it's a bit too thick and I feel like it doesn't give me a close, smooth shave like other products I have used.

Not what I was expecting. :(
I usually use a Trader Joe's product that looks remarkably similar in packaging and scent which I love. Sadly this one fell short of my expectations.
By "Very Emollient" I imagined "rich and silky" and that it would allow the razor to glide effortlessly across my legs. While I found this to have a nice scent and somewhat creamy texture, it seemed to me that it just wasn't as silky as I would like and I have to work a bit harder to get the razor to move, yet alone glide.
I'll use it but I wouldn't buy it again.
