Close Comfort Shave Gel, for All Skin Types is a cushiony, soothing shave gel for men or women. The concentrated formula does not foam or lather, yet rinses easily from the razor blade while also protecting your skin from nicks and cuts. It is one of the only truly fragrance-free shaving gels available anywhere and is compatible with any type of disposable razor blade.
Concentrated, skin-conditioning formula for a smooth, efficient shave. Non-aerosol formula is economical and creates a cushiony layer of protection between your skin and the blade.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Another one bites the dust!
    • Just amazing! I used to use conditioner to shave my legs, but it made the tub slippery. I bought this and, despite not being as slick as conditioner, it allowed my razor to glide over my skin. No nicks or cuts...ever! (which is more than I could say for conditioner!) I just went to order more and *surprise*, it's discontinued! I see that you're replacing it but would it be too much to ask you keep this one until the other is ready? Why do you try to fix what is NOT broken?! Ugh!

    Hi, and thanks for your comments! Close Comfort was discontinued for a variety of reasons, but we are introducing a new shave cream that's even better with our new PC4Men line. It should be available by mid to late-2014!

    • This is the only shaving product I can use, everything else gives me rashes, bumps and in grown hairs. Please, please, please bring this back! I've been using this for 7 years and it's simply the best for shaving.

    Hope to see this product available again also.
    • I was surprised to see this product discontinued and wish I had realized ahead of time. This is definitely a special product. I'm not sure if there is anything comparable (even a little bit) on the market.
