PC4MEN Soothe & Smooth is essentially a modern-day aftershave, but the fragrance-free formula goes beyond post-shave soothing with gentle exfoliation, resurfacing of irregular texture, helping skin fight signs of aging as well as clogged pores. It's a powerhouse formula that is different from any other aftershave you may have tried!

The alcohol-free formula contains 2% salicylic acid to exfoliate skin. PC4MEN Soothe & Smooth helps improve the look and feel of skin, including smoothing clogged pores, calming redness and razor burn—think of it as the Swiss Army knife of skincare products.

If you haven't used this type of product before, prepare to be shocked at the about-face your skin does, and by how much easier the morning shave becomes. (Shaving exfoliated skin means your razor will last longer and the entire shaving experience will go faster.)

Pros:
  • Fragrance-free, ultra-soothing, easy-to-apply formula.
  • Contains 2% salicylic acid to exfoliate.
  • Minimizes signs of shaving sensitivity.
  • Improves the appearance of multiple signs of aging.
  • Water-light formula is barely felt, and won't make skin look oily.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable.

The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
