    Great product, but is it a duplicate of Earth Sourced?
    • I got this facial wash after I got the Earth sourced cleansing gel, and as much as I love the product and how natural and gentle it is, it does look and feel/smell exactly the same compared to each other.. even the ingredients are 100% the same. Is there a reason for this? Or is there a difference that I'm not spotting?

    The two cleansers are identical. The Earth Sourced cleansing gel is a favorite of our male customers, so when we were looking for options for PC4MEN Face Wash, we turned to this existing formula to join the PC4MEN grouping.

    Very Nice! Generous Amount of Foam
    • I only tried a sample of this product. It's a gel type cleanser that generates a lot of foam. It's gentle, basic, and does the job. The simplicity of this cleanser is exactly what a no frills guy would want. I feel like the product team decided to have it generate foam on purpose to appeal more to men. Which I feel is true, because I feel more clean after using a foaming cleanser. So don't change that! The only problem I could see is those who prefer a cream type cleanser for more moisture.

    Generally Great
    • This is a repackaged version of Earth Sourced cleansing gel, which is ingredient-wise a perfect facial cleanser, and I'm more than satisfied with the content. What disappoints me is, though the package doesn't look like a baby's product anymore, its lid is too tight to flip open and press down with one hand. I highly recommend PC4Men to have this cleanser come in a huge bottle with a pump, with will be much easier to use.

    Mild and Effective
    • I wasn't sure about this face wash as I've usually used a more lotion-like cleanser to deal with my sensitive skin but this stuff is great. It's mild but effectively removes sunscreen, sweat, dirt and oil and the packaging is perfect for the gym bag. Leaves my face feeling clean, but not dry or stripped. Has a very slight lather, no fragrance, really like it.

    Better Than Expected
    • I have oily, acne-prone skin. This is my first gel facewash; it doesn't lather as much as other facewashes but it cleans better than anything else I've tried. My skin doesn't feel tight because this product cleans as well as adds some moisture on my skin. If my face is really dirty, like after being at the beach all day, I'll wash twice but the second time just a little to finish it off. Very happy with this.

    Not smelly!
    • This is really a spectacular product, the scent was neutral (I'm super scent driven). It washed off squeaky clean and left my face feeling moisturized and not dry.

    Mild, didn't dry my face out
    • Doesn't dry out my skin, washes away clean (no film common with "moisturizing" products). Left my skin feeling smooth, clean, not shiny.

    Great Gentle Cleanser
    • Ive tried a few of Paula's cleansers and they're all great. This one is nice because its of its natural ingredients, doesn't dry out my skin, lathers slightly, and is gentle on my breakout prone skin. Works great with my Clarisonic Mia too!

    Meh as a face wash, awesome as a shaving gel!
    • I don't know why I strayed from the hydralight cleanser, which I have been using for years and years. The formula is just a tad on the drying side for me, but I discovered it makes a brilliant shaving gel.

Can I use PC4Men Face Wash as my shampoo?

You can, yes, but it's best reserved for facial use. A regular shampoo is a better bet for guys especially if they use styling products (like pomades or waxes) as PC4Men Face Wash isn’t strong enough to remove buildup from these types of products. Even if you don’t use heavier hairstyling products, washing with our All Over Hair and Body Shampoo would work for that dual action in the shower.

How does PC4Men Face Wash differ from other Paula's Choice cleansers?

Our PC4Men Face Wash is actually identical to our Earth Sourced Cleanser, except for the packaging and the placement in our men’s line. While most of our cleansers are a balanced mix of beneficial natural and synthetic ingredients designed for specific skin types, PC4Men Face Wash was formulated for all skin types. Like all Paula’s Choice cleansers, PC4Men Face Wash is designed to be water-soluble, cleanse gently yet thoroughly, and is fragrance- and colorant-free, because that’s what’s best for skin.

What if there isn’t a product for my needs in PC4MEN?

No problem! Chances are, there’s a Paula’s Choice product in one of our other collections that will get the job done—without any fancy (re: girly) packaging or fragrance. Our Clear line is a great add-on for men struggling with moderate to severe acne, or you can mix and match between Clear and PC4MEN as needed. Same thing if you see a product in any of our other lines (Resist, Skin Balancing, Earth Sourced, etc.) that you think may work best for your skin type or concerns. Not sure if you should shop outside the PC4MEN line? Give us a call or chat us up, and we’ll steer you in the right direction!
