Ok, well, I have not actually tried this product. I bought it for my dad. His skin had been looking terrible and all dried out. Of course, he was still using his old alcohol based Aqua Velva that he had been using for years. That worked for him as a younger man, but it was not cutting it for his older skin.
I actually bought this product by accident, and at first he kind of pooh-poohed a lotion style aftershave. But once he tried it, he was sold! His skin started looking much better -a bit younger even because it was not all dried out looking and peeling.
The big problem with this lotion? You can't find it anywhere! I've just sent an email to the company that makes Aqua Velva to find out what the deal it. I want to know if it's been discontinued or if it's just that popular that no one can keep it in stock. I don't think my dad would use something like L'Occitane, because it's not "manly" enough for him and he would not want to pay the price (although I've used their products and love them).
I'll update the review if I hear back from the company. In the meantime, if you see this product, let me know. I'm getting a bit desparate to find more for him.
