As much as its called Menscience you guys must have mad scientists working there because your products are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Purchased the Post-Shave Repair Spray along with the Advanced Face Tonic and as I said about the face tonic I will say about the spray..... SIMPLY THE BEST!!!! no burning, no itching, no redness, no irritation what so ever and yes it even works "down there" and its just amazing. Skin is so smooth and conditioned its unlike anything I have ever used. For those guys who hate shaving because of razor burn and that 'AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH" feeling when you use those alcohol based products trust me this is the way to go. Again menscience keep up the good work and please keep the products comming because I plan on buy a whole lot more of your products
Results after just a couple weeks
By Nick from Washington
Bought this after doing a lot of research into how to prevent ingrowns after shaving. Of all the products I could find online, this one had the best mix of ingredients. Most of what I read encouraged using either allantoin, tea tree extract, salicylic acid, or witch hazel, so I figured, "Why not try them all at once?"
Fast-forward two weeks: no ingrowns whatsoever. Initially, it's a little weird just spraying the product on your face and having it just dry there, but it doesn't sting or anything and it's certainly worth it because it does the trick. If you use another aftershave or fragrance, just apply this stuff first. Highly recommended.
What an awesome product
By Chuk from Philadelphia
This product is awesome, i have been having this terrible bumps for over 2 years, and nothing could ever get rid of it. Immeditely i tried this product my shaving experience has never been the same. I reoccommend this product to people that have been trying other after shave products without any success. Try this product you will see a difference in the outcome
Post-Shave Repair makes shaving worth it!
By Peggy Dahlberg from Tampa, FL
Thanks to your company and the great products you offer, Father's Day, birthdays and "just because" are made soooo much easier. My husband has "his display" of the seven different products he uses from your company on his sink and in the shower.
Of course he likes all of them, but his favorite is the Post-Shave Repair. He says he has never found a product that even comes close to the results he gets from this product.
Don't miss out on Post-Shave Repair
By Mike H. from Troy, MI.
Fantastic product!! I have tried a few different post shave products and this one tops them all by far. I just love how refreshed I feel after using Post-Shave Repair! This product not only is very soothing it makes my skin tone come alive! Try it, you will only be sorry if you don't!
This is good stuff
By kenneth gustavis from
Wow this really works when most things i have tried dont come close....so worth the money
Not Sure How Well This Works
By Benjamin G. from Washington, DC
I've been trying this product for a few weeks now and it certainly hasn't eliminated all razor bumps but it's better than nothing.
By JP from Philadelphia, PA
The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is it's price. I commonly develop ingrown hairs and acne related to this. After using this product for 3 weeks, I have not developed any in grown hairs and my face complexion has improved. I would definitely recommend this product.
Issue Using Post Shave Repair
By Tom T from Leola PA
The product is good at reducing the irritation caused by shaving. I am not able to identify the scent associated with the product; my spouse says it is more medicinal like than the standard after shave fragrances. The only problem I have is with the application method. The spray is hard to direct and it is somewhat difficult to control the amount being applied. I have found that spraying the liquid into my hand and then applying it to my face works best. It would be easier to use if the product had more of a lotion or gel consistency than the liquid.
By Martin Gutierrez from Miami, Fl.
This is an amazing product that I would highly recommend to anyone suffering from razor burn/bumps. I have an oily face; I use it as a moisturizer and my face looks great after.
Very Good product
By Gordon W. from Jamaica,NY
I am a man who will get ingrown hairs and will bump up after shaving. This product is great for getting rid of those problems. I would recommend this product. It is pricey!
By Jacob E. from Sacramento, CA
It was pretty good. It's obviously not a miracle cream but it does the job, I think it may have been a bit expensive for its actual affect, though.
Didnt help..but neither has anything else
By Michael I from New York, NY
unfortunately the stuff didnt do much for me. But then again nothing has, Ive tried various remedies for the constant razor bumps but this has not helped just like everything else.
The Miracle B
By Myke Casey from Boston, MA
This Post Shave Repair is hands down AMAZING.!! I'm an African American, and have battled with razor bumps and ingrown hairs aka PFB for years and I'm pleased to say that after just 3 weeks using it twice a day I've seen great improvement, my skin has gotten clearer and I have less unsightly ingrown hairs and razor bumps. My skin looks more radiant and even has GLOW.. How sick is that? This miracle bottle not only fights your unsightly ingrown hairs and razor bumps but also soothes and moisturizes your skin. Great for my sensitive & oily skin, doesn't clog or give you a greasy look. I recommend spraying it on as soon as you get out of the shower. If you've ever battle with ingrown hairs & razors bumps THIS IS A MUST HAVE!
Having used various products to handle issues with ingrown hairs and razor bumps, as many African Males face, my experience with Post-Shave Repair was not significantly better in comparison. I tried the product for about 3-4weeks with little advances in the reduction of ingrown hairs and even experienced what some would consider an increase in ingrown hairs and razor bumps, though I was hoping for the contrary. The effectiveness of this product is average to less than average. I wouldn't go as far to say that the product was the cause of increased irritation I experienced, but for the cost, I expected much better results. Some of its previous reviews addressing the experience of African American males led me to believe that I may have FINALLY found a great remedy for this chronic issue, but that simply is not the truth in this case. I hope this comes as a help to other African American males as a honest and fair review without any misleading hype for or against this product. For me, it just didn't make the cut, therefore I will not be purchasing this product again, nor would I recommend it to other African American Males experiencing mild to significant skin irritation resulting from ingrown hairs or razor bumps.
By Dustin H. from
I have been using this product along with the shave gel for about 5 months with no results. I use the post shave repair twice a day even on days that I do not shave. I have just as many ingrown hairs now as I ever have. I am not saying it doesn't work at all, it just doesn't work for me. I had really high hopes for these products because everyone said how great they were. On to the next...
Best after shave out there for sensitive skin
By David C. from Washington, DC
Just spritz it on your face and you're good to go.
For a product that's so easy to use--you don't even massage it into your face--the Post-Shave Repair really makes my face feel good and look fresh. I've got sensitive skin that I often get bumps and redness on my neck even with an expensive fresh multi-blade razor. The Post-Shave Repair makes those immediately go away and stay away.
I expected more.
By Tim from San Francisco, CA.
Like the other Menscience products I've recently purchased, it worked fine but it didn't "WOW" me. And for the price I paid, I expected more.
expensive but great
By david from dubai
Its amazing, and it works, i tried it and i am happy with it,
A+ for Post-Shave Repair It's the Real Deal
By Mark from Temple Hills MD
I been searching and use a lot of products for treating Ingrown hairs. Unfortunately none of them worked, until I came across this product. I use it two times a day in the morning and in the evening. I'm a black male, and it appears that Ingrown hairs affect us more often than any other culture. I have seen a lot of men who would get there heck faded with hair bumps popping out. This is the BEST product to use for fighting Ingrown hairs.....
Expensive.... But Works Great
By Mike from Florence, SC
This is a great product that I would highly recommend to anyone suffering from razor burn/bumps. This does a superb job at combating razor burn and removing redness. I've also noticed the ingrown hairs that I used to get on my neck the day after shaving are gone.. Thanks
By Michael B from Houston, TX
Wow...very happy with this purchase. It does the job.
So far so good
By Tony I from Hackensack, NJ
With other products after I use it for about 2 weeks, my skin seems to adapt and the product stop working. However, i've been using this for about 6 weeks, and still no breakouts as bad as I used to. I am going to wait for about 6 more weeks, before I agree that it is definitely doing it's job.
By Dustin Dis from
I've been using this product daily for over a year and love it. It's something I look forward to after shaving or washing my face. It's a must have in my travel bag, along with several other Menscience products.
This is a great product
By David L. from Orange, CA
This post-shave spray is the greatest. I was skeptical when I first purchased this, but after trying it, I was amazed. It refreshes your face and helps keep your face skin soft. Just spray it on after you shave and leave it. Your skin will soak it up. Great product.
Not just for aftershave use!!
By Daniel Groth from New York, NY
This is definitely one of the products to have in your shaving tool belt. Not only does it help combat ingrown hairs or just after-shaving sensitivity, this product can AND should be used every day. When sprayed all over, it leaves your face feeling even cleaner and less oily throughout the day, and you only need a little bit. 1 bottle, used every morning, should last you at least 5-6 weeks.
By Jonathan P from Sheffield, UK
When I first purchased this I'll admit I was skeptical. Could a simple spray really do the job? The Verdict: Awesome! I love this product. When you spray it on you'll feel all it's powerful ingredients going to work. I find that it itches slightly when I spray it on (not the burning you sometimes get with other products). I follow it with my a good quality aftershave balm that has cooling agents and it leaves my skin healthy and well conditioned.
I use it alongside other Menscience products; facial scrub, daily face wash and advanced shave formula.
Works as Advertised
By classic shaver guy from San Francisco
on 3/1/2010 12:03:00 PM
This product does seem to do a better job of preventing razor burn and ingrown hairs than the product I was using before--a similarly priced cream from Taylor of Old Bond Street. Usually I experience some irritation several days after shaving, as the hair begins to grow out again, but that has not happened with this product.
The fact that it's a spray instead of a cream has some interesting pros and cons. In the past I've found that rubbing my face after shaving can contribute to formation of ingrown hairs, and using a spray instead of a cream eliminates the need to rub. On the flip side, I find it somewhat difficult to apply a spray efficiently. In each squirt I use an appreciable amount, and I feel like I have to use 3 or 4 squirts from different angles to get really good coverage of my face and neck.
The best aftershave ever!
By Burlee from Dallas, TX
on 3/1/2010 8:03:00 AM
This product greatly improves the shaving experience. It relieves your skin after you shave without burning. Use this along with the Advanced Face Lotion and you'll feel like you just stepped out of a spa.

Helps repair skin. Minimizes in grown hairs regardless of the closeness of the shave. Skin feels great after shave.
NO MORE INGROWN HAIRS!!!
By Viva la Vida from Reading, PA
on 2/25/2010 8:02:00 PM
With coarse hair, I like to have a clean close shave. I was always dealing with ingrown hairs. Since using the Post-shave repair balm, I have really minimized ingrown hairs not just on my face but chest as well. Easy to use and one bottle goes a long way.
Best product I've ever used.....
By Drew from Chicago, IL
on 7/24/2009 11:07:00 AM
I've used a lot of products in the past that claim to soothe sensitve skin after shaving (including Tend Skin), all of which have failed...since using MS's post-shave repair, I have not ONCE had a razor bump or irritated area..top notch product guys...don't ever go out of business or discontinue...I don't know what I'd do...:)
Works on Black skin too
By fazjam from Boston, MA
on 6/24/2009 7:06:00 AM
I found this product through google search. At first, i thought its for white skins only but i decided to give it a try. I am black, i have a problem of ingrown hair that causes bumps. I have used Post Shave repair with my cousin, it really works perfect. My ingrown hair has reduced drastically and my bumps. It does not burn and smells normal. This is the first product i have used that really work, its worth the money. Black men with a problem of hair bumps should try it
Excellent for military
By JC from Tacoma, WA
on 6/16/2009 1:06:00 PM
Read a great review about this, got it for my husband a few years ago - now it's a staple. He's military and has to shave every morning and used to get the most horrible razor bumps and ingrown hairs - since he started using this, they've all gone away. Highly recommend for anyone with thick, fast growing beards or sensitive skin who has to stay clean shaven.
Razor Burn Is Banished...
By OC Chief from Orange County, California
on 5/27/2009 8:05:00 AM
This is a terrific blend of herbal compounds that doesn't dry your skin and helps banish razor burn. Ideal for sensitive skin. The ease of application (spray mist) further makes it easy and mess free. I have pretty sensitive skin and my neck is prone to razor burn... this item has done well by me and kept me "out of the red zone" on my neck.
By Richard from Colchester, Vt.
on 5/20/2009 10:05:00 AM
The spray feature is great. No irritation from rubbing, this is a great product.
Must for heavy beards and ingrown hairs
By EZE from Denver, CO
on 4/6/2009 9:04:00 AM
Everyday I have to shave and by 5 I already have a nice shadow. Because of this I always have problems with ingrown hairs. I have noticed considerable less with this product. It's a god send. Thanks!
Outstanding!!!! Prayers answered!
By Brent from NYC and Chicago
on 4/6/2009 8:04:00 AM
This product is outstanding and I want to thank you. My fiance bought me this for my birthday. I am a white male, 31 years old and have struggled w/ ingrown hairs since high school. They became infected, irritated, painful and embarrasing to the point I was cancelling business meetings b/c they were so bad. I've tried everything, TendSkin, microdermabrasion etc... and nothing worked or it dried my skin out so bad and smelled terrible. I use the spray 2 x per day and i have yet to have a severe ingrown hair after shaving. I travel a lot as well so the 4 oz. container is perfect. I really must say this has been a life saver for me. I have used the product for just over 1 month now coupled with your shaving cream and am going to place my next order today. A sincere thank you for developing a product that is so efficient. I have had dermatologists that gave me all kinds of samples etc... and none of them hold a candle to this. Much appreciated.
This product really works!!!
By Matty T. from Mount Airy, NC
on 4/6/2009 8:04:00 AM
The post shave repair is a miracle product! My ingrown hairs are completely gone. I have tried everything and nothing has worked until now. I thought I was going to have to see a dermatologist but not now after finding this product.
IT REALLY WORKS!
By Big Joe from Hampstead, NH
on 3/25/2009 7:03:00 PM
I grew a beard that I maintained for over 8 years because I was so tired of razor burn. My kids couldn't even remember what I looked like underneath! My wife begged me to shave and found this product...what a difference!! They only reason it doesn't work is if I forget to use it! I would recommend it whole heartedly!!
By Don from Miami
on 1/22/2009 6:01:00 PM
This product repairs your skin as advertised. I periodically nick myself when shaving. This product quickly stops the bleeding and soothes my skin. I don't have to spend time waiting for it to heal or the sting of aftershave on it.
By Dan from Orchard Park, NY
on 1/14/2009 11:01:00 AM
This product does just what it says it will do. The cool spray on my face is quite soothing, and I notice future shaves are close and easier to endure. Highly recommend this product.

By San Andreas from Madison, WI
on 12/16/2008 2:12:00 PM
This product ties my favorites among all MenScience product. It's unlike anything I've used before. My only advice is just to go out and buy this stuff. Now, sleep easy knowing that your skin is going to feel like a cool, Alaskan wave sprinkled w/ diamonds.
As good as it says
By Woo from TX
on 12/16/2008 1:12:00 PM
I use it every time after I shave. It feels so great on my skin and leaves no oily feeling, NO IRRITATIONS at all. By combining the Menscience Advanced Shave Formula and this Post-Shave Repair, I don't see any blackheads or ingrown hairs anymore like I used to.
And also, this bottle can last you FOREVER. So, I would definitely keep using it (not gonna change to other products). I would definitely recommend this thing to whoever needs a after-shave that's non-irritating, clears up ingrown hair, and LONG-LASTING.
No More Red Bumps
By John the Plumber from Beverly Hills, CA
on 11/11/2008 12:11:00 PM
I love this product for one reason: I have a thick beard and on my neck, I get a lot of red bumps from ingrown hairs. After spraying this on my face and neck post-shave, the red bumps have disappeared. Even when wearing a tight collared shirt and tie, my neck is finally smooth and the ingrown hairs are gone. Also, it feels great when you spray it on, like it is cooling your skin.
This product is great!
By loving wife from upstate New York
on 11/4/2008 12:11:00 PM
I bought this product for my husband who was experiencing flaking skin and serious skin irritation after shaving. His face was very dry, and the after-shave he was using appeared to make it even worse! I set out to find him an after-shave that was alcohol-free to provide him comfort, as well as help repair and heal his incredibly dry skin. This product, coupled with the MenScience advanced moisturizer did the trick in bringing back a healthy face, and provide comfort and soothing after shaving.
HOT HOT HOT..... I hope it works

Heavenly Spray Toner
By EKarl from Coral Gables, FL
on 9/18/2008 7:09:00 AM
This is the greatest toner I have ever used - it cools my skin down in cold weather and refreshes it on off-shave days. It's ideal for everyday use and the scent is masculine yet high energy.

It Does Work!
By Wishful close shaver from Louisville, Kentucky
on 9/14/2008 1:09:00 PM
I have a severe ingrown hair problem, to the tune of having several laser treatments done to remove all the hair in my cheek area (both). I still grow a normal beard other than my cheeks & I do experience ingrown hair problmes in those areas. The post shave repair along with Men Science shave creme, face scrub, lotion etc...has really helped my problem. I am 34 years old now & I have battled this for 12 years. I can honestly say I am at my best now with my condition that I have been in 12 years.
Works better than anything we've tried.
By Lisa from Towson, MD
on 8/12/2008 1:08:00 PM
I purchased this product with the daily face wash for my African American teenaged son. The combination of these two products improved his skin tremendously. He was suffering with terrible clogged pores, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. We saw results within 24 hours of the first use. The Post Shave Repair soothed and healed his skin and it looks better than it has in a very long time.
Best Post Shave Soothing Solution
By Rick from Indian Head, MD
on 7/20/2008 12:07:00 AM
I use this product after I shave my head to minimize any possibility of razor burn. By and far this is the best solution to minimize and calm an area after shaving. Once I spray it all over my head it feels cool and I have NO bumps or irritation. I also use it on my face but since my head is more sensitive, I mainly use it on my head. The best post shave solution for the bald head minded people like myself.
Thanks - Rick
Like Splashing Vitamins on Your Face
By Joe from Santa Fe, NM
on 7/17/2008 8:07:00 PM
Once again, a great menscience product. I use this product every morning and spray it all over my face before applying the Ultralight Advanced Skin Lotion. The spray makes the lotion apply more evenly, smoother, and goes farther. But it's a great product by itself when you just want to spray and go without lotion...and still feed your face!
By hd from Illinios

It is very soothing when applied after a shave.

This products does soothe face and neck after shave.
• Immediately calms redness and razor burn with anti-inflammatory ingredients
• Helps stressed skin recover and heal after shaving
• Resolves and prevents ingrown hairs, and keeps pores free from clogging
• Softens, refreshes, and improves overall skin conditions
How to Use :
To help prevent irritation, razor burn or ingrown hairs spray over clean beard area after shaving.
Allow to completely absorb into skin before applying other products.
Repeat twice daily to help treat and prevent ingrown hairs.
To cleanse and refresh the whole face, spray over face area and allow it to evaporate or pat dry with a towel.
Additional Tips :
• The Post-Shave Repair can be used as a gentle toner for the entire face. Its skin-conditioning ingredients like Witch Hazel, Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree Extract are ideal for keeping the face clean and refreshed.
• For oily skin, use the Post-Shave Repair in place of a moisturizer.
Is the Post-Shave Repair appropriate for all skin types?
It is recommended for all men’s skin types: from oily to sensitive to acne-prone skin because it does not contain alcohol, oil, fragrance or other irritants.
Why doesn’t the Post-Shave Repair contain alcohol?
Alcohol has a tendency to dehydrate skin, causing irritations, inflammation and provoking razor problems such as ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Post-Shave Repair uses gentle, nourishing ingredients to keep the skin cleared and conditioned after shaving.
How long does it take to see results?
The Post-Shave Repair begins working as soon as it is applied to help decrease shaving redness, irritation and razor burn. When used regularly over several weeks in conjunction with proper shaving techniques (see our article A Definitive Therapy for Ingrown Hairs or Razor Bumps), the Post-Shave Repair can help keep your skin and pores cleared and in top condition, as well as improve ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Your skin will show significant improvements in terms of its appearance and overall conditioning. If you have severe or frequent cases of ingrown hairs (psedufolliculitis barbae or PFB) we highly recommend you consult a physician.
How much Post Shave Repair should I use?
Apply it generously to your skin by spraying 4-6 times directly from the bottle and allowing it to completely absorb into your face. Repeat twice daily to help combat ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
Is the Post-Shave Repair supposed to be sprayed or splashed on like an aftershave?
It is designed to be applied with the fine mister. Once you have applied it, you can also use your hands or a piece of cotton to gently spread (don’t rub) over the beard area and the rest of your face.
How does the product help prevent ingrown hairs?
Salicylic Acid (less than 1% concentration) helps dissolve the top layer of dry skin cells, allowing the Tea Tree Extract to effectively clear pores and help prevent hairs from becoming trapped in follicles. Allantoin, Azulene and Rosemary help prevent irritation and soothe the skin.
Can the Post-Shave Repair be used on areas other than the face?
Yes, the product has been designed to be used externally on exposed skin surfaces. It is both a post-shave healer and a skin toner for men, and can be used to cleanse and refresh the skin at any point during the day. Keep away from eyes, membranes and mucus areas.
