Say it isn’t so! This shaving cream, which is more old-fashioned than modern, had all the potential in the world to be a great option for those with dry, sensitive skin—but it contains the potent irritant menthol, which is a deal-breaker because irritation, especially when shaving, always damages skin. Also included is the topical anesthetic lidocaine, but this isn’t a great ingredient in shaving creams, either. Why? Because lidocaine numbs the skin, so you may not notice when you’ve gone too far with shaving certain areas or the irritation caused by the ingredients in skin-care products aimed at men, leading to redness, nicks, and razor burn.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
