Gentle on skin, light fragrance, prevents ingrown hair. None. I have naturally wavy hair, and my beard is coarse and grows in all sorts of directions. I have never used a better, less irritating shave gel/cream (I'm 31). If you are prone to breakouts and ingrown hairs from shaving, definitely give this a try... and if you're a guy who shaves on Accutane, this is not likely to irritate your skin (I used it while on Accutane). One of the few skin products I love (btw, I use it with a Mach 3 razor-- in my experience twin/single blades are terrible to use if you have ingrown hairs due to a coarse/curly beard-- they don't shave well on one swipe, forcing you to go over the same area more than once, which only causes problems).
