I have used this shaving gel on my legs, bikini area, and underarms for more than five years now, and my husband has used it for about two or three. I highly recommend this product to anyone who gets ingrown hairs, nicks, and/or irritated bumps.
Regarding the "shave less often" claim, it is absolutely true for both of us. This shaving gel makes the hairs softer and thinner. We both have fair skin and a lot of brown hair. My skin is so fair that the hairs are very, very noticeable against my skin. Without regular use of this product, I need to shave my underarms everyday -- pretty much 365 days a year. When I use the gel regularly, I only need shave every other day or less --- so only 182.5 days max a year! :-)
