This is a fairly runny product once sprayed onto the sin, but it dries quickly. It is completely transparent and I haven't had this stain any clothing or fabrics it's come in contact with. If you get overzealous and spray on a lot it may drip a bit, but if you hold it a few inches from your skin and spray it should stay where it is well.
After spraying this on, it's fairly obvious that it forms a protective coat. It's not greasy or tacky at all, but it does make your skin feel a bit... rubbery? It's not at all unpleasant and it feels nice on my skin against fabrics. It takes about 5-10 minutes to completely dry on my skin.
In comparison to the other aftershave I use, Coochy Protection, this has a very light scent. It's very botanical, and reminds me of green tea with a hint of peppermint. It's not overpowering and it won't interfere with any other perfumes or scented products that you use. It also won't rub off on clothing or other people.
Overall, this scent fades very quickly. After it dries completely I can only smell it faintly and if I try. At the end of the day you can't smell it even if you smell your panties directly, so it's very discreet. I wouldn't recommend tasting this because of some of the ingredients.
As far as the actual performance goes, this may actually be a bit more effective at calming irritation and preventing infection than its competitor. I have been using this for several days (I shaved the day I got it, and shaved yesterday, as well, and I used it all the days in between) and have noticed only slight irritation where the sides of my panties rubbed against my skin.
The one thing that really stands out to me as the difference is that this one does sting upon application. Looking at some of the ingredients, a lot of them are anti-fungal or anti-bacterial agents, which I feel is to kill any preexisting bacteria on your skin before tightening your pores and forming a protective barrier.
This tends to wear off on its own, but it is definitely washed off by the time I get out of the shower. If you have an adverse reaction this can be easily washed off with soap and water or wiped off by using a moist towel or a baby wipe.
I REALLY like this product because, before I found out that they made aftershaves for your neither bits, I was resigned to having painful, puffy, infected pores for about 2 days after shaving. If you have issues with irritation after shaving, you need to try this.
This product comes in a very well made plastic bottle. It's waterproof and it comes with a lid, so you can travel with this if you wish. It has a spray top that has a great design (which seems to defy physics) that can spray upside down, so it's easy to spritz any newly shaved areas without having to keep it upright.
There weren't very many instructions on the bottle, but it didn't really need very many. It lists all of the ingredients and a bit about the brand, but is very discreet and unless someone reads the label it looks like some sort of hair care product.
Overall, I really enjoy this aftershave. It really is giving Coochy a run for its money, but I'm going to have to decide when I run out of both if the higher effectiveness is worth the slight stinging when I first apply it. I personally wish that some of the ingredients were more straightforward and safer, but I really like not being in pain all day after shaving to complain.
I'm giving this product 5 out of 5 stars, but I would encourage everyone to read up on the ingredients beforehand and to do a spot test to avoid any adverse reactions.
