Rated 1 out of 5 by RichardNY Post Shave Repair Gel
This is probably the worst product Kiehl's has ever released. I am not against change, but their Ultimate Men's After Shave Balm and Moisturizer was a perfect product I used for many years. The replacement, if used with the Post Shave Healer (the blue astringent) immediately clumps and leaves dandruff-like flakes all over your skin and collar. I informed the staff, and they suggested I simply wait a few minutes before putting it on - which I tried, but the effect was essentially the same. I returned the bottle and received a refund and the staff member confided to me even when they do their demos it clumps up in their hands. So my only question is when will the Ultimate Men's After Shave Balm and Moisturizer return?
Rated 1 out of 5 by SoCalAustin Nothing compared to Ultimate Mens After Shave Balm and Moisturizer
You're probably looking for a substitute to the awesome Kiehl's Ultimate Mens After Shave Balm and Moisturizer. Well, this isn't it. Pretty sure the only option is to find the balm on other retails if there's any left or hope that Kiehl's brings it back. This slimy replacement isn't worth your time. This feels greasy and leaves a residue.

As much as I'd like to have good things to say about this product, I can't think of any. Every time I've tried to use this product after shaving, my skin feels filmy and gross. At this point in time, there is no good alternative that Kiehl's has to offer for an aftershave.
If you do end up getting this, try to use a tiny tiny amount.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ZAPPATORE This product is not worth $1
So, we went from having two great aftershave products which were discontuned to be left with this!
I'm not sure who is buying this or why they still make it.
Who is making the executive decisions on what men like to use?
It does not keep the skin moisturized and certainly does not compare fractionally to its predecessor .
It's time to either bring back the "close shavers squadron " ultimate men's aftershave balm & multi purpose facial formula! Or make another quality product! What we have now is far from good !

Jeez, what a bunch of whiners!f I have used Kiehl's products since before I could buy them on the internet and could only get them at Neiman Marcus. Over the years Kiehl's has discontinued, changed, re-formulated, and re-introduced many of their products. In my opinion, all for the best. Yes, I liked the old after shave balm, but this formulation, I think is better. it's cooling, soothing and is the perfect lotion for my face after a shave. I use a double edge safety razor, and I have sensitive skin. This stuff does the job. If you are a newcomer to Kiehl's, I'm sure you will like it. If you are a regular and can't handle change, you probably won't like it. Making comments like "it's just like water" don't gain any credibility. Come on, man up. Handle it. Or vote for Trump. He'll make your face great again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by beagle19 the trend continues
Horrible product. Does nothing for my skin. I echo the sentiments of those who have said that the Ultimate After Shave Balm was the best thing going. That was one great product. However, as has been an all to frequent trend, you keep changing or discontinuing great products. What is your thinking? Have you ever heard of the saying "Don't reinvent the wheel?" If so, apply the principle to your proven winners and favorites.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Movingon It's time to say good-bye to Kiehls for post shaving products
This new gel does not cut it from a post shave perspective. It forces you to use the moisturizer which is not great.
As a majority of all recent reviews have stated, Kiehl's really screwed the pooch on discontinuing the Ultimate Mens Aftershave & Moisturizer product. I was a user since it came out perhaps two + decades ago. It was a truly great post shave and moisturizer product.
Though the brushless shave cream is still great and work using, it might be time to find a new company with products that are worth paying for. Kiehls, smarten up and bring back Ultimate Mens Aftershave & Moisturizer please.

Repairs nothing. Provides no soothing effect. Nourishment must be provided by an additional moisturizer after applying this garbage. It would be refreshing if this product was reclassified from lightweight to non existent. I used ultimate shave balm for 10 years and now I have to use two products for a similar effect. If I can't find a replacement I will use zero kiehl's products instead.
