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.

Perfect. My favorite shaving cream.


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



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!

Saved My Shave


I hated shaving. Dreaded it. My skin would always feel raw and irritated, and I just thought it was because I had such a rough thick beard. This stuff made my skin feel so smooth, I couldn't stop touching it. I don't feel bad about shaving any more, and if I want a clean shaven look I know it won't have to come with any pain involved. Definitely going to get the Smooth and Smooth exfoliator to pair with this.

Will purchase ongoing forever...


I don't often review products, but my experience with PC has been so results driven. This shave cream is all I will ever need, face, body, down there lol It does the job. I couldn't even bring myself to finish my over fragranced, over alcoholic and over irritating 'sensitive' foam I was using. This is the only shave cream I will use again, you really have to try it to experience the actual difference. Great stuff.



Beautiful shaving cream


Excellent. Lathers beautifully for a rich creamy foam with a brush. Though it doesn't foam as crazily as my previous cream from Bluebeard's Revenge, my skin is much more comfortable and moisturised after using this. There's also the added bonus of it being fragrance free and full of anti-irritants. The whole PC4Men line is ridiculously amazing.

Exceeded my expectations


This shaving cream is amazing, I couldn't wait to try it out! Lathers well especially with a badger shaving brush. Love that it has only great for you skin ingredients. Ive tried the Art of Shaving and Jack Black and this is by far my favorite. I will definitely be reordering it. Thanks Paula's Choice!



Was a skeptic


The shaving cream was actually a lot better than what I currently use. I would use this as my normal shaving cream. I'm used to a foamy shaving cream and was skeptical this product would work, but loved how well it performed, Great shave, smooth, only takes a little.
