An evening skin care routine doesn’t require a lot of work.  In fact, it’s an easy two-step process that takes less than five minutes to complete.  Here’s a brief breakdown of what to do every night to improve your complexion and boost your confidence:

  • Step 1:  Use a gentle face wash.
  • Step 2:  Apply a non-SPF face moisturizer.
By incorporating this routine into your evenings before bed, you should notice an improvement in your appearance. Try to use products with little or no fragrance as synthetic scents can irritate the skin.  Also, avoid face washes that contain sulfates.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo Review Caulfield's Counter Haircare Hair Dandruff Cooling Men Women

An all-around great shampoo: Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Mint with subtle rosemary.
I Liked: the natural, refreshing scent and mild tingle.  My hair felt clean and my scalp felt energized after using this shampoo. Ideal for use on normal to oily hair.
Not a fan of: nothing. However, those with dry hair may want to explore other options or use this shampoo sparingly – maybe once every few days.

What I enjoyed most about using Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo were a) the scent and b) the cooling effect it had on my scalp.  The smell is a natural, invigorating blend of… drumroll please… rosemary and peppermint.  The fragrance is evident but not overwhelming – it’s just the right amount.  This shampoo left a pleasant, mild tingling sensation on my scalp.  I highly recommend this product for those of you with shorter hair who enjoy using a thoroughly cleansing shampoo, as it effectively lifts oil.

Aubrey Organics Men's Stock North Woods Shave Cream Review Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Shaving Male Skincare

100% Natural and Cool: Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream

Aubrey Organics Men's Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Shaving Male Skincare

Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Aubrey OrganicsDrugstore.com, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Whole Foods Market.
Scent: Natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor .
I Like: that the product is made with 100% natural ingredients.  The cool, tingling feeling of the cream.  Less foam means you can see where you’re shaving.
Not a fan of: how the cream can occasionally clog the razor.

What I enjoy most about using Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream is knowing that it is made with all-natural ingredients and therefore less likely to cause major skin irritation.  The brisk, tingling sensation of the cream may not appeal to all people, but I really enjoyed it – it wakes me up in the morning and makes shaving a bit more exhilarating.  The fragrance is distinctly masculine – a natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor.  Those seeking a lot of lather should look elsewhere – this shave cream does not generate a lot of foam, but it helps provide a slick surface for your razor to glide on.

Artisanal Natural Brand: Soap Deluxe's "Sporty Outgoing" Bar Soap

Soap Deluxe's "Sporty Outgoing" Bar Soap Ingredients List

As someone who is developing a business, I appreciate other emerging business owners who focus on being environmentally-responsible.  One such company is Soap Deluxe, a maker of  natural, cruelty-free handmade soaps based in the United Kingdom.  I met Soap Deluxe’s founder, Philip Woolley, by chance through YouTube.  Philip contacted me one day about one of my videos, “Bar Soap vs. Face or Body Wash – Which One is Better?”  In this video, I tout the advantages of using liquid body washes without really considering the benefits of bar soaps.  With Phillip’s help, I now realize I was generalizing when I spoke about both body washes and bar soaps in the video.  Not all body washes and bar soaps are made the same.  Many commercially-made big brand liquid cleansers and bar soaps contain chemicals that can over-dry and irritate your skin.  What I should have said in the video was pay close attention to the ingredients of the body washes and bar soaps you purchase.  Stick to products with more natural ingredients whenever possible.  Your skin will benefit from it.

Pictured above is Soap Deluxe’s Green bar soap, characterized as “outgoing sporty.”   The scent is a refreshing blend of basil, rosemary, ginger and fennel.  Ideal for use in the morning or after a workout.
