By smoothing on Trumper's skin food after a shave, the new tender skin is soothed, sealed and offered nourishing relief.

All time favourite Review by: Matty B 23/11/2019
This is my favourite after shave balm coupled with TOBS rose cream and Thayers Rose Witch Hazel its gives you great rose scented shaving experience. Scent doesn't last that long, gives excellent moisturizing feel to the skin. Highly recommend this if you aren't a fan of rose they have other scents. Their sandalwood is also quite nice.
Still love this product Review by: Scott 15/12/2018
I have tried other scents in the Gft skin food and i have come back to the Coral. The rose water scent has an old world sophistication that i really enjoy. It is gentle and calming with a simple silky texture that quickly disappears to leave your skin feeling rejeuventated and natural.
Excellent product Review by: John 7/12/2018
I got this to take my order up to the free shipping amount! But now I'm ordering it for its own sake. It's a great product and I've actually had compliments on my skin since I started using it. It has a nice fragrance, and leaves my skin feeling soft and happy.
Great smell and feeling on the skin Review by: Brodie 24/04/2017
I find that GFT products are always worth it. The Coral Skin Food is no different, it has a fantastic scent (musk/rose water) and a small drop goes a long way leaving my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. I'll definitely be reordering this product in the future.
Great for the skin Review by: Glen 25/01/2017
I had this originally in the GFT sample pack. I find it really great for the skin. A bit odd to use at first as it is not like other aftershave products in application. Don't have wet hands when you use this and you only need a small amount. It seems moist when applying then gets to a point where it becomes tacky. That's when you stop applying. It dries almost instantly after that leaving the skin feeling sealed and refreshed. I like the fragrance which is probably closer to a rose scent but I don't think it is feminine. If you are having doubts about the scent go the Sandalwood version. Excellent product.
Soothing and subtle Review by: Scott 9/11/2016
Have found this product to be excellent for pre and post shave. The initial slick feel settles out nicely as does the scent. The gentle but complex rosewater based scent is relaxing on application but fades to nothing quickly enough that it doesn't clash with your cologne.
Not my cup of tea Review by: Esquire 17/02/2016
I'm not a fan of the scent, as can be seen from other reviewers you are either into it or not. Personally I think its a bit feminine.
As a soothing balm though its great, once I run out I will be trying the Sandalwood version
Excellent post-shave Review by: Adam 4/11/2013
The scent isn't just rose - I think there's a subtle citrus element to it as well. Lovely scent, whatever it is.

Calms down razor burn nicely - more so than the lime or sandalwood versions, in my experience.

You only want to use a tiny amount - a dab the size of a 5 cent piece (AFTER the liquid has had a chance to settle and spread out - it's thick stuff. You don't want a whole stack of 5 cent pieces, that's too much).

If you use too much, your face will look and feel weird. If you use the right amount, it's fantastic stuff.
Great Pre-Shave Review by: Cecu 21/06/2013
Reading the reviews, most people have used this as a post shave.. I have only used it so far as a pre-shave (came as a sample) and it works a treat!

Even with blades that normally would irritate and feel harsh on the skin, if I apply coral skin food 2 minutes before shaving and then apply shaving soap, the blades now just glide smoothly and don't irritate at all.

I'll definitively be ordering a 100ML tube now..

Nice Product Review by: BlackBear 23/12/2012
A very nice product, I use it as an after shave balm, a little goes a long way and the scent is quite pleasant for a floral one. It doesn't linger too long.

Although my skin feels nice after applying this, it doesn't quite feel as moisturised as I'd hoped for. I did have a sample of the Lime Skin Food and that one seems to be slightly more oily and moisturising, so I think I will go with that one when my Coral runs out.

Other than that, a fine product from Trumpers.
Perfect Review by: Raag 3/07/2012
Cured any issues I had with razor bumps and the scent is refreshing but fades quickly so doesn't clash with other products. Great gear.
Your face will love this Review by: Gus 8/02/2012
I had my doubts about this product when I first opened the sample that I received with an order from Men'sBiz. The smell of Roses was not what I was expecting although the colour should have given it away. With a little hesitation I placed the smallest amount on the end of my finger and proceeded to rub it in to my freshly shaved face. The rose scent is not long lasting which is a bonus. The effect on freshly shaved skin is simply astounding. It has a very instant soothing affect and leaves your sking feeling like a million dollars. I'm still working my way through the tiny sample bottle. A little goes a long way. I actually prefer the Rose scented Coral to the Extract of Limes but I've got the Sandalwood on my list of future purchases as I am partial to the Sandalwood scent. An excellent product from GFT.
very pleased with results Review by: J.B. 10/11/2011
I used the Coral Skin Food as a post-shave balm. I'm not normally a fan of rose scented products but the rose scent is very light and the 'coral' scent is very refreshing. as soon as I applied it I knew that my skin loved it. soothing, rich & luxurious. it performs as well as any other post-shave balm I have ever used.
damn you Men's Biz..... another little sampler that has got me hooked!
Good, but not as good as the sandalwood Review by: Aussie 8/03/2011
This product is just as effective as the Trumper's sandalwood skin food, but personally I am not that partial to the scent. The scent of the coral lasts a little while and while I dont apply an au de toilette directly after my shave I could imagine that the strong scent may interupt what you put on top. For my money, I would stick with the sandalwood.
Pretty good, not sure about fragrance. Review by: Eamon 8/03/2011
I received a small sample of this with a purchase. The balm does help well to soothe the skin after a shave, and stops my skin from drying out too much. The fragrance is an odd choice but seems to be masked by cologne anyway.
Not as good as the lime Review by: Anthony 8/03/2011
I decided to try the new coral skin food since the lime one was out of stock. I found the alcohol burned my skin yet the lime one did not despite the fact that they are made of roughly the same ingredients (both have alcohol in them).

It seems the lime one is far more soothing and the smell is less strong and more pleasent. If you're looking to buy skin food give this one a miss and grab the lime and you won't be disappointed it is every bit as soothing as it should be.
What's wrong with the scent? Review by: Tim D 8/03/2011
I had to review this, if only to give some support to the Coral's rosewater scent.

I am definitely partial to Turkish Delight, and that's what this is. It is sweet and floral, and smells like that gelatinous heaven that comes in chunks dusted with sugar.

The arguments that have been made in previous reviews have primarily been about the scent. It may polarise some (they say the same about Tabac, and that stuff is incredible) but I love it and the performance is fantastic. If you are a fan of extremely sweet scents, give this a go. Layer it with D&G's The One as a cologne, and smell irresistible to hungry women everywhere.

I really wish Trumpers made a shave cream of this scent. I would spread it on crackers.
