Pump dispenser
I have used the sensitive soothing post shave balm for years. I like the product, but do not like the bottle now. The bottle used to come with a pump dispenser, which I really liked. I would like Nivea Men to return to using the pump dispenser.

Low Cost, Satisfactory Ingredients
Nivea advertises that there's no alcohol in their Sensitive Cooling Post Shave Balm. While that may be technically true, the second name in the list of ingredients is Isopropyl Palmitate -- which is partly derived from alcohol and over time, can end up drying the skin. Other ingredients of concern include Phenoxyethanol, potentially harmful in high amounts -- and Sodium Chloride, which offers no benefits to the skin and salt obviously will dry the skin. It's also concerning that fragrance is used in a product designed for sensitive skin. But, I will say the balm leaves my skin feeling soft and seems to last. The directions on Nivea's bottle say to "apply liberally" -- which is actually terrible advice. If used sparingly, this inexpensive after shave is quite satisfactory.

Good, could be better
Pros: light feel, not greasy at all. Nice price. Cons: glass bottle is is kind of dangerous when your hands are wet, especially with the hard-to-remove cap. (I had to buy a plastic container in order to feel comfortable and make it easier to apply.) It should really be fragrance-free.
