My wife has this, and I've used it for the past two weeks as an after face scrub pre-shave conditioner, then jump into the shower with hot steam. I get a great shave, and use a small amount after my shave to moisturize my skin. Works great. I've since gone to Nivea soothing balm for sensitive skin, but I'd use this if I were out of the Nivea without thinking twice. Makes a great poor man's moisturizer.
