Alvarez Gomez Barberia Shaving Cream - is it supposed to be grainy?

When I use it I've been noticing that there seems to be little grainy pieces mixed in - not a lot, just 5 or 6 per shave. Is this normal for this cream? I do tend to treat it as a croap and face-lather.


Not normal, per my experience with Gomez.
Perhaps some temperature extremes.
Try to stir a bit or contact your vendor?
My Cella did that when I neared the bottom of its container. At first I thought maybe the grains had settled to the bottom during manufacture. I later came to the conclusion it was simply getting older and becoming crystallized. The graininess became so much of a problem I tossed the remaining part away. Still not sure the reason...

BTW I'm not familiar with Gomez, but maybe the same thing is going on as my Cella.


I can’t feel it, but it looks a little grainy. I works wonderfully and smells amazing.
