Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS.
Scent: Mildly masculine blend of bergamot, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.
I like: the lotion’s gentleness, light consistency, all natural ingredients, mild scent, and versatility – it works as an aftershave/moisturizer. Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: nothing.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave works well on practically any skin type.  Just because the packaging says “aftershave” doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an everyday moisturizer – it’s versatile, though you’ll need to apply a facial sunscreen with this product if you’re going out during the day .  Because the lotion is 100% natural, it is ideal for those with sensitive skin who tend to breakout when using products with synthetic fragrances.  The subtle, naturally masculine scent is just right – it’s a blend of bergamot, lemon, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.  If you’ve been using synthetic or alcohol-based aftershaves, now is the time for you to transition to more natural alternatives.  Start by trying this great moisturizer.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ (over $50) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Soothing blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli.
I like: the soothing herbal scent.  Its thick texture thoroughly moisturizes without leaving a greasy film.
Not a fan of: the high price tag.

I’m a big fan of practically every offering in the Dr. Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom product line.  My favorite product in the line is the Soothing Face Cream.  I love how its intoxicating herbal scent – a natural blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli – puts me in a meditative state.  The rich cream hydrates my skin without leaving it feeling greasy.  A little goes a long way, making the higher price tag easier to digest.  It’s versatile – you can use it day or night.  As with other products in the Dr. Weil line, this cream is made without the unnecessary synthetic ingredients, such as parabens and artificial fragrances/colors, commonly found in skincare products.   I recommend this cream for anyone with sensitive skin who suffers from redness or irritation.

Burts Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS .
Scent: Natural earthy blend of patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, and calendula.
I Liked: the scent as well as the product’s purity.
I didn’t like: the shave cream’s thin consistency.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream smells wonderful, reminiscent of the scents in some Aveda products.  This 100% natural cream contains a calming blend of a variety of essential oils and extracts including patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, fir, chamomile, and calendula.  In addition to smelling great, this cream soothes while you shave and does not over-dry your skin.  It’s more of an everyday shave cream – I suggest using this product on lighter, one-to-two day beard growth.  The cream’s relatively thin consistency may not be ideal for shaving a thicker, heavier beard.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion Caulfields Counter Male Skincare Mens Grooming Toner Product Review

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Light blend of chamomile, lavender, patchouli, and orange.
I liked: the product’s unique ayurvedic scent as well as its soothing and hydrating properties.
I didn’t like: nothing.  This is a great toner for sensitive skin.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion works very well as an aftershave splash and refreshing skin toner.  I’m normally not a big fan of face toners and astringents as they usually contain alcohol and do more harm than good.  However, this “lotion” (which is really a splash) is alcohol-free and contains a number of plant-based ingredients that help soothe and hydrate the skin.  I really enjoyed the product’s calming scent, which is a light blend of chamomile, lavender, patchouli, and orange.  As with all toners the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion should be used after washing and before moisturizing.
