      So I use many different Kiehl's products regularly, and this is the newest product I've tried. I have mild rosacea on my face and was looking for something to soothe after a shave but not be too heavy since I already use and love the "Heavy Lifting" men's moisturizer. This product fits the bill. It's very lightweight, absorbed quickly, and allows me to then layer my serum and moisturizer without my face feeling like a cream ball. I understand the negative reviewers' frustration over a discontinued product. I suppose some of those reviewers liked the heavy moisturizing of that product since they claim this one dries their face... this seems less of an issue to me if you use this with a moisturizer. This product is what I want since I follow my shave routine with a heavier moisturizer. I encourage others out there looking for a soothing post-shave lightweight formulation that you can easily follow with your normal skincare routine to give this product a try; just ask for a free sample or two at a store. It certainly has helped my post-shave irritation. I like that Kiehl's is slowly removing parabens from their products as well.

      Bring Back Old "Ultimate Men's After-Shave Balm" Formula

      Please Kiehls, if you want my business again, bring back the old formula. I am now searching for another brand to replace the old formula "After-Shave Balm" version with the Blue Label that you no longer make. I have been a loyal customer for many years, and have seen other products I use discontinued, but this is the last straw, I have had it. Clearly I am not the only person that feels this way about this product, as every reviewer is in agreement that this product is not good. Hope a new version comes out soon.

          This feels good when you first apply, but leaves you unsatisfied once it dries. You feel like you need to use the entire bottle.

              This works quickly and very effectively. It really does a great job of soothing irritated skin, whether from shaving or too much wind and sun. It is not greasy and its effects are long lasting. I like this better than competing products that I have used. I find it essential.

              Great, soothing aftershave balm

              Not sure where the negative reviews come from. I think this is a great aftershave balm. It's soothing (aloe vera) with just a mild sting (peppermint), which I like. The consistency is not watery or "sludge" as others have stated. I regularly use Anthony Logistics aftershave balm and would argue the Kiehls is thicker, yet applies smoothly and cleanly. Not greasy at all. My face felt softer and less irritated even two days later. I have somewhat sensitive skin and shave every other day. I'm a believer.

              This is a great repair gel that doesn't irritate the skin or dry it out. I've been using it for three months and love the results. Don't be deterred by the negative reviews; I'm buying two more bottles as presents for my brother and father.

              My husband has been using this for years and loves it. They changed the packaging which confused him when repurchasing. Men don't like change. Did they change the formula as well. Guess we will see.

              Wonderful Product

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Post Shave Repair Gel:

              I have used this repair gel for the last six months and gotten fantastic results. I am baffled at the negative reviews. It is thinner that a lot of other products, but I find that to be a major plus. It is not greasy. It dries quickly and leaves my face feeling hydrated all day. It never runs into my eyes when I sweat. It improved dry, red skin that I suffered from shaving and from living in a dry climate (Arizona). I highly recommend this product. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

              Used the product for the first time today. Must say, that based on other reviews I was reluctant to try it but now glad I did. Very cooling and soothing and felt it left light protective shield which has now lasted for over 8 hours.

                  it doesn't feel like it lasts - too thin - really not worthy of the kiehl's name...

                  For years, I have been using your post-shave moisturizer for men which you replaced with this sludge. When using it on my neck after a shave, it produces small white particles that are near hard to get off the skin. After two decades of using the Kiehl's Post-Shave moisturizer, I'm now looking for something different
