I have tried quite a few different shaving creams and gels over the years, and have stuck with Gillette's Gel for a while now. I prefer their gel because it seems to go on a little thicker than the shaving cream, which I prefer. It seems to give a more comfortable shave. Another think I really like about this gel is the different types you can get, such as moisturizing, sensitive skin, etc. I have a very sensitive neck so the sensitive skin is great for me. Truth be told, I don't know if I can actually tell a difference between the sensitive and the others, but I guess it makes me feel better that the bottle says so. I still get razor burn more than I would like, but overall I like this product and will most likely continue to use it.
