  • 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. Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your PC4Men products can be found in our Men's Skincare article.
  • How much shave cream do I need for my beard area?

    A nickel-sized amount should be plenty to cover the beard area (including the neck and under the chin). A thin, even layer provides the best results. Rinse the razor blade with water after every two to three strokes.

    Can I use PC4Men Shave to remove hair…down there?

    Yes! PC4Men Shave may be used to shave unwanted or excess hair from anywhere on the body. It will not sting or burn delicate skin areas, though we encourage you to use extra caution when shaving around sensitive parts!

    Will this work just as well if I prefer to shave in the shower?

    Yes. Whether you shave while showering or at your bathroom sink, PC4Men Shave works to provide a close, smooth, comfortable shave you can see and feel—and best of all, you won’t be dealing with unsightly red bumps or razor burn (but do be good about changing your razor blade as needed; a dull blade puts your skin on the fast track to razor burn).

    What type of razor works best with this?

    For best results, we recommend using a razor with at least three blades (such as Gillette Mach 3 or Schick Hydro 3) or those with four or five blades, all of which are readily available at drugstores.

    Does it matter if I use this before or after washing my face?

    No, that’s more about personal preference. Some men feel they get a closer shave if they wash their face prior to shaving, while others find it doesn’t matter if they wash first or when they’re done shaving. Experiment to see which method works best for you!

    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!
