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.

Benefits:

  • 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.

Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

My summary says it all,, and that is after shaving for more years than I care to remember! Makes electric shaving a pleasure and the result is as smooth as a blade shave!

Great product , poor packaging !

By Timbo

Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

My review has to echo the comments about the packaging , although the product is great and one of the best shaving products I have ever used without question ; the packaging really lets it down , after using it for a few weeks the stick starts to crumble and drop through the open base , making it very awkward , messy and difficult to use !
This could easily be resolved and make it the most perfect shaving product !

Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

I love this product. I use it all the time. It makes my face feel so cool and smooth. I can use any shave lotion with it, or and razor. Works great. I'm going to try the after shave balm soon. I love most of the dermalogica products I've tried.

Pre-shave guard could be great

By Deuces

from Alabama, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

The actual product is great! Unfortunately the change in packaging from a jar to the roll on tube has proven to be a disaster! The 'roll on' tube sits on a cross bar rather than a solid base so by the time you use around 70% of it, the remainder starts to crumble and fall to the bottom of the tube causing you lose it or scrape it out and save it in some other type of container.

Excellent when shaving with machine in the shower

By DeBoss

from Denmark

Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

I use this when using my wet-sharver..

It shaves well when using it normally - without Preshave guard.
But when applying PSG right before shaving (in the shawer), it shaves extremely close and much better.

This is the only way shaving gets just as good as with old fasion razor :)

    Poor packaging makes it pricey

    By SuperShaver

    from Deal, NJ

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard:

    Because the product itself, inside the 'roll on' tube sits on a cross bar rather than a solid base, by the time you've used slightly more than half of it, the remainder crumbles and falls to the bottom of the tube making it difficult to retrieve. If you can find this same product in jars, as it used to be packaged, it is a superb pre-shave product.

      Can this product be used for shaving the "bikini area" on women?

        A:

        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,
