Intelligent cream-gel is a multi-talented solution: it moisturizes, cools, repairs and improves the look and feel of skin. Goes on light, but substantial enough to let a chap know it's working. Doubles as a stellar aftershave balm.

I'm going to sound pretty much like a previous review but he got it spot on for me as well. I have used various moisturizers by Jack Black and Kiehls, and most recently Malin + Goetz. The latter is good and will be my fall-back but my first choice is the Bia Ji. I'm a big fan of most anything by Molton Brown and this one of my favorites. Also, as has already been stated, the only thing I wish that could be different is the packaging as it's difficult to get that last part of the lotion the way the pump is set up.
mI come back to this product after every experiment with another. Alchime Forever is excellent, and a reasonable alternative if I'm out of Bai Ji. Jack Black and Kiehls are both good. Clarins for Men and Urth are just OK--both dry down to a bit of a greasy residue for me, and don't have the same staying power. But this one is the best of the dozen or so I've tried...by far. It is at once light and substantial. The fragrance is fresh and clean but subtle. After 10 hours, my skin feels hydrated, firm, and calm, even after a workout and shower. I use it as an aftershave moisturizer and always wonder why I use anything else. The only negative is the packaging. As the pump empties the jar, there always remains lots of product around the sides of the container. My solution is to twist off the top and scoop the moisturizer on the interior pump tube...not ideal, but it gives me another 2-3 weeks of daily use. But this is a minor inconvenience for a truly superior product. BTW, this doesn't lose its clean fragrance after 3-6 months on the shelf like some (i.e. Malin + Goetz). I've been meaning to write this review for 2 years now...
There are several products for which the difference between the high end and low end is not that discernible. That is not the case for moisturizers. This is a quality product which I've been using for about two years; using it in the morning and night.
I've used a lot of different products but love this stuff from Molton Brown. It's not got a fragrant smell and left skin really soft and nutured after shaving.....I even put it on whenever I don't shave just to moisturize the lines around my eyes (age is not kind sometimes) and it's acutally reducing them! Never thought I would be that guy talking about moisturizers but this is good stuff.
and says, "ahhh...thanks man," every time I use the Molton Brown Bai Ji Hydrator. I've used this product for over 5 years, and I know it does the job, and feels awesome every time I rub it on my face. Ignoring the commerical lingo above, bottom line is, I strongly recommend this product if you are considering what moisturer to use.
