Id Facial Cleanser and Shaving Cream
This rich-lathering, gentle cleanser and shaving cream contains salicylic acid for anti-acne, anti-inflammatory and exfoliating action.
Skin-safe lubricants provide gentle cleansing and smooth shaving of any skin.
Aerosol shavers can be mostly fluff: lots of lather but less skin contact, and far less moisturisation. Id's supple, hydrating cream is light, smooth and buttery (not too thick, foamy or heavy for extra-close shaves and clog-free pores.
Thoroughly removes dirt and excess oil. Helps clear up and prevent acne, ingrown hair, and other bumps on the face, underarm, legs and other shaved areas.
Keeps skin clear and smooth.
To Use as a cleanser,: 2x-a-day, massage a small amount onto damp skin. Rinse well with water.
To Use as a shaving cream: with hands or a shaving brush and cup, work into a light lather on areas to be shaved. Shave as usual. Rinse clean.

It’s about what your skin needs, period. Mapping your way from “men’s” care to skin care. Men’s skin care is a little specious. Think about the many health care products that don’t “gender-ize”. If you had a cough you’d reach for a cough syrup, not men’s cough syrup. Prescription skin drugs like imiquimod for warts, infliximab for psoriasis or isotretinoin for acne don’t come in men’s and women’s formulas.
