Ask a Question

A beard-softening shave prep for tough, coarse beards. Cooling formula ads an extra layer of defense during shaving to help minimize razor burn and bumps. Maximizes beard softening without the high-alkaline ingredients that can aggravate and dry skin. Cooling camphor helps tone to lift beard away from skin for maximum razor closeness. Help relieve razor burn with clove flower oil. Combat aggravation, reddening and mechanical peeling associated with shaving with soothing Wheat Germ and Yeast Extract. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.


  • Effectively softens heavier, coarser beards without skin-damaging high alkali.
  • Adds an extra layer of defense against the razor blade.
  • Increases lubricity during shaving.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

After cleansing, apply a thin layer to beard. Do not rinse off. Apply Soothing Shave Cream over Pre-Shave Guard. Shave, rinsing blade often. Rinse with warm water. For use only underneath Soothing Shave Cream.

Precautions: Use only underneath Soothing Shave Cream for an ultra-lubricating, skin-protecting shave.

        Thank you for your inquiry. All of our Shave products can be used to shave the bikini area. Pre-Shave Guard should be applied directly to clean skin under your shaving medium. For best results use post shave balm after shaving to sooth and protect your skin.

        Kindest Regards,
