Additional Information

Why is it different?
You may think it’s your razor causing your skin to hurt, but often it’s actually your shave product that causes the discomfort, redness, and bumps. PC4MEN Shave will quickly calm and comfort skin instead, and omits skin-aggravating ingredients such as fragrance and menthol, which are surprisingly present in many shave products (and after shaves). It’s classic shaving with a modern, gentle twist!
What does it do?
Brings you a concentrated, performance-driven formula that allows for a fast, smooth, skin-softening shave.The innovative, ultra-soothing formula's cushiony texture safeguards skin and ensures a close yet comfortable shave. The light, non-irritating formula rinses easily, leaving your skin smooth to the touch, not red, bumpy, or dry.
How to use
Apply to damp skin, shave as usual, rinse, and then pat skin dry with a clean towel. Follow with PC4MEN Soothe + Smooth and the rest of your PC4MEN product routine.

The best shaving cream I've used


I've used dozens of different gels and creams. This is best one by far. I tossed all the other stuff and just make sure I always have a spare of this. It has a tendency to clog my razor, which is easily remedied by blowing it out or dipping in water.

Great samples; women can use it, too!


I have to admit, I am a bit of a shaving product fanatic. I've never epillated or waxed professionally(one time with the Sally Hansen home kit was enough for me-ouch!)but I really like a close shave. My skin is normal to dry on my body, and a lot of shaving products irritate me. With a surplus of highly fragranced, colored, and "cooling" hair removal products on the market, I often find myself perusing the isles of the drugstore trying to find one marketed for sensitive skin; and even those contain fragrant oils. When I ordered a bunch of samples from Paula's Choice, I randomly added one of these to my basket. I was pleasantly surprised!The consistency is more of a whipped texture, and it spread easily across my underarms and legs. One sample size was enough to cover both underarms and one of my ankles. I thought I'd try it this way for a good reason: the skin on different parts of my body reacts differently to creams and razors. (?) My underarms are smooth, and my ankles(a more finicky area)aren't showing any signs of irritation. Best of all, no itchiness afterward! I like that it didn't lather like a lot of mainstream shaving creams do, as those can be drying. However, unlike more minimal-ingredient shave creams, it didn't go watery either. I love that this contains no nasty stuff, and that it's cruelty-free. Once I finish up my EOS Vanilla(not cruelty-free)and my recently discontinued can of Olay Shea, I'll be purchasing a full-size of this. :)

Great Product


My boyfriend said it was the best shaving cream he has used, which was only three different ones, but it was still the best.






Bought this for my husband to try. He's a big fan of Murads Men's Cleansing Shave and I wanted to give him a frangrance free option. Sadly this doesn't compare in quality and doesn't do much for his skin. He even experienced breakouts after switching to this. He went back to Murad.

Perfect. My favorite shaving cream.


I use this cream with my shaving brush to create perfect lather. It's the best.



Excellent Shave Cream


With only a handful of shaving creams available that I'd consider using, it's hard not to like having another choice. After PC discontinued the previous version and after I had a mini-tantrum, customer service kindly referred me to a Beautypedia recommended brand which I mostly enjoyed. This one is very similar in texture but it rinses a bit easier from the blade----although it does leave residue on your face after shaving. Whether or not you like that residue is probably personal taste. I'm a bit fearful of leaving it on my acne prone skin so I usually wash it away. Shaving remains an irritating event for the face but products like this make it a bit more tolerable. If you enjoy lightweight gels like the previous version, this may not be for you.

Great shave cream


I have gone through two of these great shave creams and I strongly doubt I will change to anything else. I have several other high end shaving products in my beauty products closet and will occasionally use them, but always go back to the PC4Men shave cream because it does not irritate my skin as I shave every three days. I find my skin feels as though it is being moisturized as well while I'm shaving. It took some getting used to, but so worth the learning curve. Thank you PC Team!!!

Will buy again and again!


I'm a 40 yr old male with very sensitive skin that shaves daily, and this product is excellent for getting a close comfortable shave with no redness or irritation. I've purchased this item before, and will continue to do so as it's one of the best on the market (in my opinion). I love the fact that it's completely fragrance-free and the packaing works quite well for me. I follow with a PC toner and spf moisturizer and couldn't be happier! Another gem from Paula's Choice!

Shave is great; after, not so much.


Shaving was great. Had enough slip for the razor to glide easily. The problem I had was after. My skin was parched! It felt as if I had shaved with harsh bar soap! My legs were left itchy and red; I think if u had shaved dry it wouldn't have felt as bad! I used the anti redness relief over my entire legs after. (thankfully THAT works!) I realize that this is for men and to be used on the face but, unless your skin is oily, I can't see this being comfortable after. Very disappointed!
