Good assortment for all skin types, but could be better

Comments about PC4MEN Kit - Complete Kit:
I've used every product in this kit, but not all together, rather when they were packaged under the original line (i.e., earthsource, Resist nrml to oily, skin bala, etc). The only thing that was brand new was the shaving cream, which I love! I'll start with that first. It comes out of the tube and looks like cake icing. It's very lubricating, I don't have to wait long to start shaving, and although my beard is heavy I don't have to shave twice. It rinses clean, and the toner I use that day (either the Resist, or the Earth-source or Skin Recovery)removes any lingering residue. Then it's on to the smooth and soothe or the Resist 8% gel, just depending on how my skin is feeling and acting. I turned 55 in March and my skin type has been changing from Normal to Dry/Oily combo to Normal or N/D combo with the nose area only getting shiny. No breakouts, but it has taken some time to get used to changing my routine. I tried the SPF daytime moisturizer when it was part of Skin Balancing, but chemical-based SPF products cause awful itching and pain, so I stay far away.The face wash is the Earthsource gel based cleanser, and it cleans well and rinses away, leaving your face clean and grime free. The night time face cream is the Resist Barrier Repair lotion, and I've been using it for 4 years. It's lightweight yet substantial enough for most guys to find it good, especiall those in the younger years. If you feel you need lighter, or something stronger, call Customer Service, they'll help guide you to the right product, even if PC doesn't make it. True! The CS is legendary for a reason.So what would make this a better skin care line? Adding a toner, and a serum, are no brainers. Work on education guys as to why they need these items. And please, broaden the products to include other skin types! Ot at least a questionnaire on the "Mens Products" page to help them see what is on the other pages…something that's inclusionary and educational (a reminder that none of us are getting younger, and if you find yourself job hunting you have to look your best and present your experience and job qualifications, etc..) So, all in all this is a great start. Now add a little more...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Some products work some don't
from Jamaica NY
Bought this for my husband since I'm a pc products fan. Unfortunately he didn't love everything. The face wash felt like it didn't do the job right. His skin still felt not clean. And he said the shaving cream made his skin get irritated and hard to shave. The toner made him get forehead breakouts. But he loves the daytime and nighttime moisturizers. So far they didn't cause any breakouts and has worked well with his skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not for all skin types..
By Skin care obsessed
from Livingston, NJ
I am a 43 yr old female who has been obsessed with skin care for many years. I have a medical background (physician assistant) so I understand the science behind skin care quite well, plus I incessantly read medical journals re: skin care, and of course I read the fabulous information on this incredible web site! I purchased all the PC4MEN items within this set individually vs. buying the ready-made kit for my father. Since he uses an electric razor, there is no reason for the shave cream, otherwise I would have bought the actual kit. Sadly, my father is displeased with results from PC4MEN. I switched my father from Josie Maran's products to PC4MEN. The reason I did so was because he loves Josie's daily face moisturizer (which contains SPF) so much that he has been using it AM and PM for almost 2 years. My father is 72 ys old, but can seriously pass for 58-60. His skin feels baby smooth and he loves his current regimen, but I was hoping to start him on Paula's lime which I personally love so much. Plus I'd like to get him away from using a face cream with SPF at night, despite how luxurious it feels. (Although I don't think the titanium dioxide & zinc oxide in the PM as not harming his skin, nor has he had clogged pores?). After my father switched to all PC4men products, he has continuously told me his skin has never been so dry. SO, I bought him "Moisture Boost, " by PC to add his regimen, but still, he is not happy. I told him I would return the items, but he insists on finishing the products as he feels badly returning anything I give him. (I wonder if he is even using the multiple products by PC4MEN any longer?) I as thinking... Why not offer a PC4MEN for men choice for men with dry skin? Or "dry/very dry" like they offer for women? Or for those men with sensitive skin? I realize the PC items in general are unisex, but the packaging isn't and some men don't like using what looks like products for women. Since PC has a fabulous men's line which is nice for some men that like to use products "formulated particularly men," why not offer a selection by skin type? Thank you!!

he likes it!
I bought this for my husband as a birthday gift, since I LOVE PC. . He like all the men's products except the shaving cream, it is just too creamy and not enough foaming.I use it now to shave my legs and I like the creaminess.

Good...but not yet great
I've been using PC products for years and was mightily pleased when a men's range was finally launched. I've used every product in the range and of course they're quality. Only thing is...they seem designed primarily for men with normal/oily skin and not all men have this skin type! This being winter in England, I find the range slightly too drying/mattifying for skin. I sure hope Paula addresses this in future development.
Customer Service Response: Hello, and thank you for your comments! We're always looking to improve our products, so we can take this under consideration!

A must have for men
By Gail W.
I am a PC fan, and I bought this set for my hubby. At first he was a little reluctant-it seemed like alot of work.....but after a few days he told he his skin "felt better" It also looked better-no more redness or dryness. The other day a friend who hadn't seen him in months noticed a difference. It's amazing how men get neglected in the skin care dept-they really aren't aware. My only request with the mens line, is to make something for men who dry shave vs use the razor.

The complete package
By Robert H
I love everything about it. From the package design, the lack of fragrance, and to the quality of the product, PC4Men just got it right. No need to hide... these stand proudly on my shelves.
Loving this kit so far. Even though these are products already in the PC line the change of packaging & the simplicity of the routine is much appreciated. I always dreaded the possibility of people looking in my bathroom cabinets and seeing "girly" products, that's no longer a concern. Also as I am getting older my skin is starting to change & I was becoming very confused as to which PC products I should use so this kit just makes things a lot easier for me. Pls keep the mens line in production!
