I purchased this shave balm with their shave cream (it appears that these products are new). This is really good. Usually I use Tabac shave balm (nice product), but thought I need a change. It has the consistency of an emulsion paint with a faint pink colour. Becuase of its loose consistency opening the wide-mouth bottle needs a little care or you will end up with a splash all over as happened to me. Besides this, the quality is very good and together with their shave cream you don't get any after shave rashes. As the other reviewers mentioned, the fragrance is very subtle. Its likely last a long time and therefore very good value.
