Like many guys, I have a real problem with ingrown beard hairs, specially in my neck/throat area. That in combination with a mild acne problem can really be agitated from shaving and shaving related products. I thought I'd give the Advanced Shave Formula a try to see if it made any difference. I loved the fact that it contains salicylic acid, perhaps the only shave gel I've ever known to. I thought this ingredient alone might help reduce my ingrown hairs, irritation, and breakouts. Turns out, I was exactly right. MenScience really hit a homerun with this product. This, in combination with either a good quality electric shaver, or a single blade razor (forget the 3, 4, and 5 blade models) have all but completely prevented any new ingrown hairs on my face. No longer am I forced to perform minor surgery by digging out curled hairs. This stuff just works.
Simply the best!

I've used the Advanced Shave Formula for some time and it performs exactly as I would wish. It's slick, doesn't clog your razor, prevents nicks and razor burn, and then washes away effortlessly. I reconsider skin care products often in my quest to find the best, but this one is a constant.
Closer Shave without Irritation or Redness
By from  MD on 5/17/2013
I usually use other drugstore brands because I just want to look well groomed but little did I know that those creams irritate the follicles of the facial hair and they cause more redness , after I started using the shave formula from men science it helped me get the closest shave possible minus the irritation , plus no nicks and cuts associated with other creams due to bad lubrication but this cream helps me get a close shave and the soothing formula makes the blades glide effortlessly , I know even if I went against the grain or shaved in a different direction there will be no irritation so the end result is smoother skin and less irritation . I Know it worked for me so it will definitely work for your skin , also remember to purchase the post shave repair which goes along with this cream for a great shave .
Ingrown hair battlegrounds
By from Texas on 3/4/2013
I have had ingrown hairs extremely bad since I started shaving. Even though MenScience is higher in cost, I tried it, since I have tried everything else on the market that I have found. I was amazed that even after the first use of the shaving products that the problem had already started taking care of itself. I noticed the red bumps and frankly holes had started healing and any new ingrown hairs seem to just lay on top of the skin, and a pair of tweezers easily plucks them out. I used to have to dig them out a lot of the time, and my neck area always looked terrible. I am writing this review to help you folks, if you have tried everything, and nothing else has worked, then try this product... I will be using it for the rest of my life. It changed my neck from a battlefield of redness, to completely clear in 1-2 uses. I have pictures, I could be the poster face for this product easily!
No more ingrown hairs!
By from Shelby Twp, MI on 2/13/2013
For years, I have struggled with bumps and in grown hairs after shaving. I have tried many different types of shavers, gels, and other products to try to help with my issue but nothing seemed to work for me. After years of painful tweezing, I decided to try this product after reading about it on the web. I was not very confident, but after only two weeks of using it, the in grown hairs went away. My face seemed my softer which allowed the hairs to grow out instead of in. I would highly recommend this product.
The best
By from  West orange NJ on 12/26/2012
Have used this product for several years. Prior to using Advanced Shave formula would typically get bumps after shaving. Since using this product rarely ever get bumps and the shave is always smooth with very little shave burn. great product which is why I continue to use it. it works and I recommend you give it a try. best shaving product that I have found.
Better Shave
By from  Alabama on 12/11/2012
 This is an excellent product that has allow me to get a smoother shave - my skin feels cleaner and I know it softer.
Soft as a baby's butt.
By from Laguna Niguel, CA on 11/20/2012
I enjoy the product. Leave's my face as soft as a baby's butt. Have the best results if I use it on two or more days' growth.
30 years of worry.....gone!
By from Buffalo, NY  on 11/1/2012
Over 30 years...............a long time to be dependent on how my face looked to face the day. In 3 months, I no longer need to worry about the day. This is not a silly paid endorsement, just the plain truth. Thanks.
By from   on 10/17/2012
I bought the travel kit and liked most of the products. Im not so sure on this one. It doesn't provide enough protection for my face. It feels like i feel the blade scrape on my skin and i get bad irritation.
the greatest shave cream ever made
By from  brooklyn, ny on 10/17/2012
got my product this morning and was anxious to try it out for myself after reading all the reviews. the cream is thick and very effective, i shaved above my lip and was surprised i didnt cut myself after passing my blade over and over above my lip, after i washed off the cream my face felt extremely smooth, i was using a different shave cream before but after trying this product its good bye shave cream and hello to my new shave cream menscience, thanks menscience for creating this amazing product, you have now offically got a customer for life
Never stop making this product!!!
By from Elizabeth, NJ on 9/16/2012
This product was absolutely amazing. I shave with a double-edge razor and my face has not felt this good in a long time. Yeah ive tried the other "superior creams and soaps but this by far beats them all IMO. As long as you guys crank this stuff out. Ill keep buying.
So comfortable
By from  Dallas, TX on 6/10/2012
Stuff is great! This is the most comfortable/ closest shave I have ever had. One of the big plus's is that I dont always have time to take a long hot shower to soften up the hairs before I shave. I can simply moisten my face, apply the shave formula, let it sit for a few mins, shave and its still comfortable. When I do have time to take a long hot shower to soften the hair, and use this stuff, its like there's no hair on my face at all. I have been recommending this stuff to all my friends...
No more ingrown hair on my husbands face
By from  McGaheysville, Va. on 5/14/2012
I bought the shave formula for my husband because he was getting so many ingrown hairs from shaving. It would take him 30 minutes in the bathroom just to try to get them out, plus it was painful. Since using the advance shave formula, it softens the hair and makes shaving so much easier and cleaner. He no longer has to pluck hair from his face after shaving. Poor guy. Lucky me, now I can get the bathroom to myself a lot sooner. Thanks so much. He loves all of your products that he has bought so far. And believe me,he has bought a lot. And I am the one that got him started, now thanks to the samples you send with the products that he buys he always wants to try something else.
By from Tucson, AZ on 4/21/2012
Without question the BEST shave cream I have ever used. I have tried many of the foamless creams and always end up with cuts. NO cuts or nicks with Advanced Shave Formula. I only wish they would offer a scented version with a light minty, eucalyptus, or citrus type scent. That would be truly awesome and would definitely enhance the shaving experience. Are you listening, MS?  
Met my expectations and well beyond
By from  Davenport, Iowa on 4/17/2012
Unbelievable product. I use an electric rotary razor and I demand to have a product that will allow me to shave comfortably and quickly every morning. I use the product, rinse off and then shave. I have tried several foams and soaps trying to find the right combination of a close shave with as little irritation as possible. When I decided that I would try the ADVANCED SHAVE FORMULA, I was hoping for a bit better results than the other products that I have used. But to my surprise, ASF had met all my expectations and well beyond. My face is looking better, I have less irrtiations and bumps, and I just ordered to more. Excellent product!!!!
Love this stuff. Lasts long enough to justify the price.
By from  New York on 3/13/2012
I love this stuff. I have used products from just about every company and I love how this leaves no after film or greasy feeling. To those who think is too expensive how much are you using? A small amount rubbed in the hands applied to a wet face goes a long way. You don't need lathering or even to see its there. The one tube lasts forever.
I've tried the rest now I discovered the best!!!
By from  Fort Lauderdale, Fla on 3/7/2012
Wow!! After shaving with this remarkable product I apply a tiny amount all over my face then gently rinse. It eliminated ingrown hairs in just a few days!!! This product was an accidenttal discovery. The ingredients are the key components that make this product special. Bravo!!
By from San Francisco, CA.   on 2/4/2012
Unlike 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.
no results
By from   on 1/21/2012
I have been using this product for about 5 months now and haven't seen a difference whatsoever. It does seem to make the shave smoother, but as far as treating, combating ingrown hairs, it has done nothing of the sort. I also use the post shave repair twice a day even on days that I do not shave. I had really high hopes for these products because I have tried everything, but I havent seen any improvements. I envy those that have. Not saying it doesn't work at all, it just doesn't work for me.
Advanced Shave Formula
By from  Gainesville, VA on 12/22/2011
The Advanced Shave Formula has been my savior. It has amazingly helped me with combatting razor bumps. I am in it for the long haul. Thank you MenScience!!
By from  New York, NY on 11/1/2011
I bought this product thinking that it would be something exceptional, but my expectations were too high. It works fine, but I can't say that it stands head and shoulders above any other. It was expensive. So, since I can get the same results with other, less expensive brands, I'll be going with those.
Can't stop using!
By from  Glen Ellyn, IL on 9/22/2011
 I've been using this stuff for years. Have tried to use other products and keep coming back to this one. It's good stuff!
Best shave cream ever
By from Baltimore on 9/16/2011
Best shaving product ever. Here is something you can do to reduce usage. Mix with you standard shave cream. Put light layer of the Advanced Shave Formula, then layer your favorite shave cream foam (not gel) on top. That way, you get the best of both worlds.
Very Nice! Works Great!!!
By from  ohio on 7/1/2011
Decently priced, will last a while!
If only I discovered these product 5 years ago.
By from  Cleveland, OH on 4/24/2011
I've always had a problem with cutting myself, or getting bumps while shaving. I don't have sensitive skin, and I use a very high end electric razor. I decided to try this product, and WOW!!! I was truly amazed. I can now look forward to shaving. It was worth every penny, MenScience you've got a customer for life!
Smiling After Shaving
By from Athens, Alabama on 4/24/2011
I have been combating very fair skin and extremely sinsitive skin all of my life. This is an inherited problem from my Father, which he got from his, etc. In my mid twenties, after my military career, I got a job with the postal service as a mail carrier, which involved being out in the sun several hours a day. I soon began having a rash on my face, arms, and the back of my neck. After lots of tests, my doctor diagnosed my problem as photo dermatitus(sp). In short, this is an allergy to the sun, which I learned is a very common skin disorder here in the sun belt where I live. Shaving has always been a nightmare due to the sensitive areas on my face and neck. To help you to understand, this rash, if allowed to go unchecked it was a great deal like poison ivy. The shaving would make this worse and the razor no matter what kind I tried caused a very bad burn and rash on my neck. Your product has been, so far, a God send for me. I can shave now without the burning and stinging from the razor. Believe me, I have tried everything that I could find whether it was prescribed by a doctor or over the counter. The only thing I haven't tried is wet shaving with an electric razor. This is how I found your product, during this research. Would your company have some suggestions as to what device I might try, Thank you for your porduct. I am looking forward to your advice. Thanks, Tommy Walker
My Favorite Product from Mens Science
By from  Houston, TX on 1/27/2011
This is a great works perfect for my skin. The cream is really thick, makes the shaving a breeze.
By from   on 1/19/2011
i have only ever used soap or shaving foam. i have never used a gel/oil. its weird getting used to it, but it is great. my skin is smooth and not irritated, i don't really have to use a after shave or anything. face and HAIR are actually softer!
By from   on 1/12/2011
I've been using this for over a year and it's the best shaving creme I've used. The jar I have is a little less than half way full, so even though it's expensive it's goes a long way. I've had considerably less ingrown hairs since using the product as well, but I should point out that I also use the Post Shave Repair, Advanced Face Lotion, Microfine Face Scrub and traditional double edge safety razor.
Ingrown Hairs?
By from   on 12/15/2010
To put it mildly, I am thirty years old and seem to have a baby face. My beard is very light and soft The problem is that I have always had the WORST ingrown hairs. It was so bad that my face looked as though it had cystic acne. I tried everything in the book to relieve this problem to no avail. A month or so ago I ran across Menscience and bought their shaving balm, after shave spray and face lotion. At first I really couldn't tell any difference, but within a week it was like my ingrown hairs began to fade away. Keep in mind that it's only been a month, but if this continues I will be a life-long customer! I have already referred two friends. I give these three products a HUGE thumbs up...
Excellent addition to travel kit
By from Mesa, AZ on 10/21/2010
I use this stuff when I'm traveling. It makes for a quick, close shave while on the road and I don't end up with razor burn/bumps like I did with other products. If only they'd make it in a 3oz size so I could get it by the TSA...
By from OREGON on 6/2/2010
Too expensive and doesn't help with razor pumps
By from  Washington, DC on 6/1/2010
I purchased this product after reading the reviews from this site. The fast majority are positve so I decided to take a chance after many failed attempts. The product is expensive for men who will use on a daily basis and it doesn't help with my with razor pumps. I use several other menscience products that I would recommend.
A Superb Shave!
By from New York, NY on 3/1/2010 8:03:00 AM
The search for a perfect shave cream came to an end when I discovered MenScience Advanced Shave Formula. For those with sensitive skin, heavily prone to breakouts, razor bumps, irritation, and ingrown hairs, this IS for you. The product keeps the skin well lubricated and moisturized, allowing the razor to glide gently over the skin for the perfect shave. I prefer to re-lather and shave 2-3 times in one session to achieve the closest shave. MenScience clearly focuses on quality and care of their consumers.
Redefining A Smooth Shave
By from Virginia on 2/28/2010 5:02:00 PM
I never thought I would ever get a perfectly smooth shave with my sensitive skin. Having tried many, many options the MS Advanced Shave Formula is the best! One word = AWESOME!
Best shaving product ever used!
By from Durham, NC on 2/27/2010 7:02:00 PM
I'm a 32 year old black male and this has to be the greatest shaving product I've used to date. I have sensitive skin so I needed something that would drasticly reduce friction and this takes the cake! It's very light and doesn't form up like other soap based shaving creams. It's also relatively clear so you can see exactly what you are shaving. As long as MenScience sells this product, I'll be buying it!!!
Great Shave!!
By from Hampstead, NH on 2/26/2010 5:02:00 PM
I am 47 years old and have always suffered from razor burn. This product is terrific! It's concentrated and you only need a small amount. Once you get past the fact that it doesn't foam up like a standard shaving cream, you realize how effective it really is. I use this in conjunction with the post shave repair and the overall result is undeniable.
Great product
By from Miami, Fl on 2/26/2010 1:02:00 PM
Great product. Don't need to much to get the job done. By using this in combination with other Menscience products I have seen a marked overall improvement of my skin's apperance.
Smooth Shave
By from Milwaukee, WI on 2/26/2010 8:02:00 AM
I have used this product for several years. Since using the shave formula, I have not had any issues with ingrown hairs (a constant problem with other products) and the shaves have been smooth sailing. I would certainly recommend this product.
The greatest shave yet
By from Greenville SC on 1/16/2010 5:01:00 PM
Cleanest shave every,just dries out my face after.
finally, a great shave
By from dc on 10/26/2009
I've never been able to shave without feeling dry and irritated afterwards until I used this product. I rubbed it in real good and let it soak in for at least a minute. Pair this stuff with a nice safety razor for a close comfortable shave
Shave Formula

Not too bad, not my favorite but not bad at all
Best shave cream on the maret
By from SW, MO on 10/6/2009 2:10:00 PM
The main selling points for this shave cream is one, the no fragrance and dyes added in the formula. my face breaks out from any type of frgrances in facewash, soaps, etc. plus since this is a clear cream, it's able to accomidate to all my shaves during the seasons.... side burns with a clean shave, goatee, and then the full beard. the only disadvantage is the price. since my last shave cream quit making the clear cream and this is the only thing that i can find, the price is worth it, but it is a little pricey.
Shave Formula
By from fresno, ca on 8/26/2009 5:08:00 PM
the product is good, but really bad packaging. needs some type of pump container to get the accurate amount each time. Very expensive, way too expensive to not be able to measure how much you need each time.
By from New York, NY on 7/31/2009 12:07:00 PM
This shaving cream is awesome. I have never had a closer shave - and more importantly a shave with the least irritation. Before using this product I would get severe razor burn and an overwhelming amount of nics and cuts. This shaving cream changed all that, and I no longer looked like I just got mauled by an angry lion or something.
Smooth Shave with No Irritation!
By from New York, NY on 6/23/2009 6:06:00 PM
Aside from the expense, this product is incredible. Being prone to ingrown hairs and mild acne, I look for any product that will reduce irritation and redness and this one definitely does.
Best shaving cream I've used.
By from Washington, DC on 6/23/2009 12:06:00 PM
Great for your more razor burn or irritation getting a close shave.
Best Men's Products Available
By from Philadelphia, PA on 5/18/2009 12:05:00 PM
I have been a user of Department Store brand skin care & shaving products for years. I purchased the face wash, scrub, shave cream and after shave about two weeks ago. I cannot recommend these products enough! I have coarse facial hair and had learned to live with razor burn and bumps on my neck. I had never tried a product that did more than relieve them temporarily. After the 1st use I noticed a much closer shave than I was used to. After one week most of the irritation and bumps were gone. It's been two weeks and when I'm done shaving I'm left with only mild razor burn that the after shave quickly takes care of. For the first time since my teens I no longer have razor bumps! On top of that, this is the closet shave I have ever had in my life!
Works Great!
By from Virginia Beach, VA on 4/17/2009 10:04:00 AM
I bought the shave cream and spray for my husband because he gets cists on his face because of ingrown hairs. He has to shave everyday because of the military. But since he has been using this product (10 months) his face has not had one cist and he loves it. I would definately recommend this product for people suffering ingrown hairs.
Best shave ever!
By from Morehead, KY on 4/7/2009 5:04:00 PM
I first tried the shave formula as a sample and was happy with the close shave it provided. I was even more amazed with the lack of irritation; my face felt as if it had not been shaved at all! I immediately purchased a full size order of the shave formula and don't ever see myself using another shave cream or gel again.
shave formula works well
By from Gaithersburg, MD on 4/7/2009 7:04:00 AM

How much easier can shaving get?!
By from Mount Airy, NC on 4/6/2009 8:04:00 AM
I actually enjoy shaving now. I know when I use this product I'm going to come out with a superior shave. My skin feels smooth and my problem with ingrown hairs is gone. I am so glad I found out about MenScience.
Creamy & Smooth!
By from Hampstead, NH on 3/28/2009 9:03:00 PM
This cream is great! You don't need much...and it works fantastic. It may seem a bit "different" when you apply versus conventional foam or gel. I was pleasantly surprised at the small amount you need and how it really helps your shave be smoother and cleaner without being greasy. Great product!!
Never get ingrown hairs again!
By from La Jolla, CA on 1/22/2009 10:01:00 AM
I've been using Anthony Logistics for a long time and thought my shave couldn't get any better; that is until I tried this. At first the creme itself looked a bit odd and It's density made it seem like I had just wasted my money. As soon as I tried it my face has never had that smooth of a shave. I have not had one ingrown hair since, and I'm using an electric shaver so this is my miracle shave creme.
The Main Event!
By from SLC, UT on 1/12/2009 5:01:00 AM
I have used absolutely nothing but MENSCIENCE products ever since I discovered their line up 5 years ago. That being said, in my opinion, MENSCIENCE Shaving Formula has to be the pinnacle of their products! Being Military I am required to shave everyday and MENSCIENCE has since taken shaving from my "burden to bear," to my Main Event. I have tried everything from electric shavers to razors with 1-5 blades and every different cream or gel in search of the perfect shave. Only to find I've had no more success than shaving with a cheese grater. Razor bumps, nicks, and scrapes are nothing before this product.
Good Product, but not worth the money
By from Santa Barbara, Calif on 1/8/2009
This product is overpriced for what is it. Comapare to another brand's shave cream where you get two extra ounces (8oz size) for only[$] and you'll see what I mean.
Works Great
By from Mobile, AL on 12/17/2008 6:12:00 AM
The advance shave formula works very well. Makes my shave very comfortable, and I haven't had a problem with razor burn or ingrown hairs since I started using this product. I use a double blade disposable razor with it.
Enhances the shaving expierence!
By from Philadelphia, PA on 12/16/2008 1:12:00 PM
Before shaving, I always use the Microfine Face Scrub. After leaving that settle on my skin for 2 minutes, I rinse and than put on the shaving cream. I leave that settle in for about 2 minutes before I start to shave. And since using, I've yet to get razor burn. I also recommend Post-Shave Repair, as that decreases on redness or irritation.
Don't Think Twice - Get This Now.
By from Beverly Hills, CA on 11/11/2008 12:11:00 PM
I have a thick beard and I have tried so many shaving creams that promise no nicks or cuts, only to be disappointed most of the time. Also, some of the high-end shaving creams that I have tried are just way too thin - you can barely feel them on your face and the scents are often overpowering. This shaving cream feels clean, lathers well on your face and does not block up your razor. I have not nicked myself once since using it, and have not seen any razor bumps or irritation on my face. It really gives me the smoothest shave I have ever had, and am now afraid that since I found it, I am never going to be able to use anything else. If it's not apparent by now, this shaving cream is the real thing.
Great Shaving Product
By from San Diego on 11/4/2008 2:11:00 PM
I'm a young professional and have to shave every day in order to look fresh and clean shaven. I have always had a problem with razor burn and red, irritated skin after shaving (especially around my neck). I even went as far as to consider laser hair removal. I've tried using the usual, brand name, shaving products and have almost always had poor results. Since switching to the menscience shaving cream, shaving is no longer a process I dread every morning and the razor burn around my neck has cleared up significantly. The product really does make a difference and is worth the cost.
Simply great
By from Los Angeles, California on 9/26/2008
I'm a shave nut! Tried every shaving product known to man over many, many years. MedScience Advanced Shave Formula is the "final answer." Regardless of the razor one uses, MedScience Advanced Shave Formula gives the most satisfying, close, pain free shave ever. Shaves so close with so little effort that there are days I skip a shave and no one notices. The clear product allows you to see areas of the face that are missed with foams and heavy, thicker products. The best!
Excellent for Daily Comfortable Shaving
By from Mobile, AL on 9/18/2008 7:09:00 AM
I'm in the military and have to shave every day. I was having a problem with razor burn and ingrown hairs; very painful and not good to look at; This shaving cream is working wonders and haven't had a problem since I started using this product. I make sure the cream is on my face for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes and then shave with a double blade razor (with the grain). Great product!
A Soothing Effective Shave Cream
By from NYC on 9/16/2008 2:09:00 PM
This shave cream is super-light and rinses clean from my face.I allow the cream to sit on my face for a minute as I get ready for the day. I have noticed a difference in the ease of my shave.A little goes a long way with this soothing shave formula.
cleanest shave
By from Redlands CA on 8/13/2008 3:08:00 PM
This product is good because you can use it anywhere. Not only do I use it on my face, but I also use it to shave my armpits as well. It is alot smoother and feels better on the face/body.
Help for Ingrown hairs
By from Colleyville, T.X. on 7/30/2008 2:07:00 AM
This product is good for those that get ingrown hairs. This gel does not irritate skin and gives a smooth shave. Much better than any product I have tried from local stores.
Best Shaving Cream Ever!!!
By from Philadelphia, PA on 7/29/2008 2:07:00 PM
This is the best stuff ever invented. All the MenScience products seem to work extremely well together as a whole. I wash my face every morning with the Daily Face Wash and follow up with the Advanced Shave Formula. I use a double edge Merkur safety razor which is "old school" but far superior than anything out there today. I used to get nasty razor burn and ingrow hairs, but after I started using the Advanced Shave Formula, I have been smooth and clear. I absolutely love this stuff and recommend it to anyone!
Look Forward To Shaving

Menscience Advanced Shave Formula is easy to use,one step, no need to apply preshave oil. Great for traveling.
Best Shave Cream
By from Indian Head, MD on 7/18/2008 8:07:00 PM
This shaving cream is originally used for facial shaves however, I use it for shaving my head. As I was trying all kinds of shaving creams to get a close shave on my head without the razor burns and bumps, this formula is by far the best. It gives a close and clean shave with no razor burn and no, and I do mean NO razor bumps. I love this product and I am glad that I accidentally happened across your website in my pursuit of the ultimate shaving cream. Thanks - Rick
it's really good to use
By from TX on 6/16/2008 2:06:00 PM
tis shave cream is incredible! i use tis shave cream every 2 days and i dont even hav to wait for 5 minutes after putting it on, i just shave right away and it feels so clean after the shave as if you've just used a cleanser. it keeps my skin smooth all the time!
Close shave with little or no irritation
By from New York on 6/16/2008 10:06:00 AM
I've tried scores of shaving creams and this one works best for me. Tough beard with sensitive skin used to mean that I would risk ripping up my face each morning, even when using a brand new blade. I've been nickless since using the Advanced Shave Formula.

Is this a good product to prevent razor burn and irritation?

Yes. Advanced Shave Formula shaving cream for men has been scientifically formulated for men with professional ingredients that will prevent and treat razor burn. Because it is a cream-based product and not foam-based, it provides maximum protection to provide a close shave without irritation. It also has professional-grade ingredients such as Allantoin and Azulene that help prevent razor burn, irritation and soothe the skin.

Can it help treat ingrown hairs?
Its unique formulation contains Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree Extract, professional-grade ingredients that help keep pores and follicles clear and are highly effective at combating ingrown hairs. In addition, anti-inflammatory ingredients help soften and condition the skin, further reducing the chances of developing ingrown hairs or razor bumps.
Why doesn’t it “foam” like other shaving products?
Its special formula is based on Aloe and Glycerin, which provide a rich lubricating layer that protects the skin and allows the blades to glide over without scraping the skin. Most other shave products contain soap-like ingredients to produce foam, which provides minimal protection and can actually dry and damage the skin.
Should I wet the beard area prior to shaving?
Yes, we highly recommend you wet your beard area with plenty of warm water before applying Advanced Shave Formula. This will open up pores and prep the hairs to receive an even, close shave. Better yet, you should try shaving while in the shower: this plumps the hairs up even more and reduces the chance for skin irritations. After thoroughly wetting the area, allow the Advanced Shave Formula to sit on your face for a minute or more. This will allow the product to lubricate each hair to allow for smoother shaving.
Why should I shave in the shower?
Shaving in a warm, moist atmosphere like that provided in a shower allows your pores to open up and hairs to become softer and easier to cut. This reduces the risk of razor bumps and other skin irritations.
How can I get an extremely close shave?
There are several things you can do to get a more effective, complete shave. First, try shaving in the shower: this will open pores and plump hairs, making them easier to shave. Regularly exfoliate your face with a face scrub, like the Microfine Face Scrub. It will gently prime hairs and raise stubs so you can get a closer shave. Discard your shaving blade after 5 or 6 uses to make sure you're using a sharp blade every time.
Should I rinse the Advanced Shave Formula away with cold or hot water?
We recommend you use lukewarm water after shaving. Hot water causes moisture on the skin’s surface to evaporate quickly, and cold water will cause pores to contract and feel tight.
I’ve been told that applying shaving oil before applying shaving cream will produce better results. Is this true?
Pre-shave oils are sold because many shaving creams don’t provide adequate lubrication because they basically consist of soap and foam. Most shaving products are basically just soap and foam that provide little lubrication. The Advanced Shave Formula creates a slick, lubricating cushion that provides an incredibly close shave and no irritation, so it’s not necessary to use a pre-shave oil.
Why is the Advanced Shave Formula clear?
The product has a clear application to allow you to see the exact area you are shaving. This assists in maintaining sideburns, goatees, mustaches or other facial hair you want to keep trimmed.
Can I use an electric razor with the Advanced Shave Formula?
Advanced Shave Formula is formulated to be used for “wet” shaves, but can also help protect the skin when used with an electric razor.
