Benefits of Pre Shave Guard:
Effectively softens heavier, coarser beards without using skin-damaging high alkali ingredients found in most shave products. Also ideal for skin that is extremely sensitive or sensitized and requires an extra layer of defense against the razor blade. Acts as an anti-inflammatory that helps control itching caused by irritation. Provides intense additional lubricity during shaving.
Dermalogica Recommended Skin Type: All skin conditions, especially those with heavy, course beards.
Dermalogica Recommended Application:
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.
