Thanks for taking the risk and writing the review. I use Aveda Hair products. I'm pleased to see that I can buy this with confidence too.
I've had a bottle of this stuff for about a year, and I used it almost exclusively before I started with the DE. I still use it, but I actually have found that it works better for me as a pre-shave. I keep the bottle in my shower and put about 4 pumps on my face at the beginning and let it steam in for a few minutes. By the time I'm out, I'm ready to go. As with all of Aveda's products, you know you are getting first rate quality.
