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.

Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Earthy, woodsy.
I Liked: the scent and the gentleness of the shampoo.
I didn’t like: nothing.

The Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo is one of the best I’ve tried in recent memory.  What I enjoyed most about it is the scent – it’s masculine but not overpowering, with that great Aveda earthy, woodsy fragrance I’ve grown to love.  This shampoo is kind to the hair as well as the scalp.  My scalp typically feels itchy when I use a shampoo that isn’t gentle enough.  This has not been the case with the Pure-Formance shampoo.  It cleans without stripping the hair and scalp of vital oils.  I highly recommend trying it out.

Zirh Protect Daily Face Moisturizer Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Zirh.
Scent: Light citrus.
I Liked: how light the product felt.  It moisturized without feeling greasy.
I didn’t like: the paraben preservatives.

Zirh’s Protect Daily Face Moisturizer is a lightweight face lotion that does a good job at moisturizing without leaving a greasy shine.  It has a light citrus-like fragrance that even those with sensitive noses should find tolerable, if not enjoyable. Avocado oil and Vitamin E moisturize while Allantoin helps to soothe the skin – which makes this an ideal post-shave moisturizer.  Fans of anti-aging products will appreciate the skin regenerating properties of its alpha-hydroxy acid content.  Because this moisturizer lacks significant sun protection, it is a better option for those days spent mainly at home or in the office.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream Texture

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) 4 oz. tube – Available at Malin+Goetz, Grooming Lounge, and Barneys New York.
Scent: Menthol.
I liked: how cooling and invigorating it felt – no other shave cream comes close in this department.  It rinsed easily off the blade and did not dry out my skin.
I didn’t like: Nothing.  However, the major cooling sensation and price tag may take some getting used to.

It felt as if my face was in the Arctic when I used the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream.  I have never experienced a more cooling shave cream.  The menthol really packs a powerful punch – ideal for those mornings when you need a little help waking up.  Because this shave cream doesn’t really lather up it didn’t over-dry my skin – I’m sure the extra boost of vitamin e doesn’t hurt.  Unlike some thick creams out there, this one didn’t clog up my razor cartridge – which I greatly appreciate since they cost a fortune to replace.  Four ounces of this frigid goodness will cost you $22 – worth trying if you’re man enough to face its chill.
