I've used this project for many years now, but sadly I'm beginning to look elsewhere. It use to be the best. It really moisturized your face. I'd put the Neutorgena astringent first and then the lotion and that was it. Now it seems I have to put several coats of the lotion so that my face does not dry up. You can put this lotion at night too, supposadly to help you with your next morning's shave. I don't buy that. It's a good product if you are use to putting several coats of your aftershave moisturizer.
