Soothing Shaving Cream has a name that is in direct opposition to what this poorly formulated shaving cream does to skin. The sandalwood, lime, and eucalyptus oils and menthol are not soothing in the least, nor can they help shield skin from an aggressive shave. Aramis Lab Series, Aveeno, Clinique, and Every Man Jack (sold at Target) all offer better shaving creams that omit the irritants.

Claims

Calm down and get close. For a super-close shave that won’t leave skin feeling sore, apply this ultra-lubricating cream. It helps skin recover from damage and helps prevent aggravation brought on by shaving. Ideal for those who prefer to shave with a cream. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Brand Overview

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
