Has anyone with sensitive skin used Geo F Trumper skin food? I have sensitive skin and am wondering if this is a suitable product for me?

It’s ok. Glycerin is one its main ingredients which makes it feel slick/tacky after application. Speick aftershave was much more healing for me than this.

I've had the Coral (rose) and Limes versions... To be blunt I found it good for nothing. As Mike points out, it has virtually no healing/soothing properties whatsoever. TOBS aftershave gels are superior products in this regard, they leave your face feeling silky smooth like latex.

I've used GFT Skin Food in Sandalwood, Coral and Extract of Limes.  It's a good product which has been around a long time.  Some guys like it, while others don't care for the sticky feeling from the glycerin.  You'll have to try it and decide for yourself.  

I have found that plain, 100% Jojoba oil is excellent as a post shave product.  Jojoba oil is the primary ingredient in the expensive and well regarded post shave serums from Sebum.

My goal for a post shave product is to moisturize my dry skin, a nice moderate scent and not an "all day" scent.  Pacifying post-shave irritation and aggravation is lower on my requirements list (also normally a 2 pass shaver).

GFT Skin Food in Sandalwood is a favorite product.  The glycerine attracts moisture to the face and the scent is nice and short lived.

Terrible skin and facial injuries.  Been under dermatologist care since a child.  GFT OK but if you have the money, ABC balms by far the very best on the market - have literally tried them all.  Of serum, have used both Grooming Dept and Sebum Gold (not rest of line) - both about equally good with GD being much less expensive.  A real AS star marketed as skin food is ETHOS - this stuff is incredible!  Combining layering ETHOS Skin Food, GD Serum and ABC Balm (in sequence) is the best solution found to date - each require minimal amount to yield results

Thanks for advice folks. I think I will pass on GFT skin food and look into the other options suggested.
