I really like this product. It does provide for a near perfect shave, especially when paired with another mentholated soap or cream, though it will enhance with anything I imagine. You can use more or less to get a light menthol flair or a heavy sensation. If I were to find any fault with this product, it would be that pairing it with a non menthol soap or cream can be an issue. It does what it is supposed to, but paired with, say... an almond cream, the menthol kind of over powers any almond sweetness, no matter how little you may use. I rotate a number of various creams and soaps daily for variety's sake, and find that as much as I would like to use it with each, it can take away the the original pleasure of another product. That aside, I highly recommend it. I have a very sensitive face, and this has caused me no issues whatsoever. And paired with Proraso's own cream, it's a real treat! The combination is unbelievable. I like to tone it down afterwards with Nivea's Sensitive Post Shave Balm.
