The AOS products that I have tried have been good but perhaps a little overpriced with a couple of small exceptions. First, I don't think that the cream is especially overpriced. Yes, it is expensive, but it is within a resonable range (IMHO) and it is a great cream. Second, I have no use for the pre-shae oil (AOS or other brand). I just do not find these to be of any benefit to me, though YMMV.
