Rated 1 out of 5 by from You really blew it attempting to replace the Ultimate with this. You discontinued it once before and brought it back. Don't you people learn. Now you have a product that nobody wants. That was a smart move. I've already started looking for replacements from Dove, Nivea, The Art of Shaving After Shave Balm, Baxter of California After Shave Balm, Anthony Logistics After Shave Balm , and others. You discontinue a very popular product which many others including myself used for years. Whether you care or not, you've lost my business and I would hope that others should look to these different companies to find a product comparable to the Ultimate Men"s Shaving Balm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed Kiehls had what was, in my opinion, the best after-shave product on the market - the ultimate men's after-shave balm and moisturizer. For some reason this product has been discontinued and replaced with this post shave repair gel. This new gel product does not feel soothing and dries out the skin. Not only will I never order it again but after using it twice I will not even use it again. Kiehl's original product was best in class. This one is not even close. I am praying that Kiehs resurrects the original Ultimate Men's After-Shave Balm and Moisturizer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please Bring Back Balm Unfortunately, this is a poor substitute for the after shave balm. It is not really moisturizing and it does not smell good. I bought a few bottles and may throw them out. There are no products on the market that compare to the after shave balm. Kiehl's has a bad habit of stopping products. First, the eucalyptus shave balm was discontinued. Now the ultimate moisturizing balm is no longer available. It is really annoying to have products that you have depended on for a decade disappear. I am not sure what the motivation is, but please bring back the balm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 from Insulting I was more than a little surprised when I went to replace my dwindling supply of after shave balm and told that it had been discontinued. I was given a sample of the replacement product and was on my way. Not to echo most of the other reviews, let it suffice for me to say that it is beyond disappointing. Like the other reviewers, I was a loyal customer (twenty+ years) and am now back on the street looking for something that can even come close which this "replacement" does not. It is thin, ineffective, and expensive, none of the things that the believers want nor need. Parting is never easy, but relationships are a two way street, and when one throws the other under the bus, you have to keep going - the other way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back the "old" formula Sorry but i have to agree with the other negative reviewers. Im a big Kiehls fan and use a range of products but this was a disappointment. Ive used the moisturizing after shave for years and loved it. This is a very different product. I felt it dried the skin and it certainly doesn't moisturize (although to be fair - it doesn't claim to be a moisturizer like its predecessor). Maybe I'm being harsh but i certainly found the previous formula much better. I'll need to look elsewhere for my aftershave lotion now.
