Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Review Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming razor burn bumps ingrown hairs

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Ingredients Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming razor burn bumps ingrown hair

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at ZirhBeauty.com, Beautybar.com, and Amazon.
Scent: Subtle classic barbershop aftershave smell with a hint of citrus mixed in.
I Like: how the tonic soothes razor burn. Made from witch hazel, not alcohol. Pleasant masculine fragrance.
Not a fan of: the price. I’m accustomed to paying more for moisturizers, not toners.

Zirh’s Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic is one the few post-shave splashes I can recommend as it does not contain alcohol.  The calendula and chamomile ingredients are effective at soothing razor burn.  I’m not so sure about how well Zirh Erase works to treat razor bumps and ingrown hair.  It comes in a masculine-looking bottle – the dispenser has a small hole, which allows you to use the tonic sparingly.  One bottle should last you about 3-4 months with normal use.  This product does not moisturize so you’ll need to complement it with a face lotion.

Buy this product while you still can.  The Zirh brand is going away soon 😦

L'Occitane CADE Youth Concentrate For Men Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at L’Occitane and Nordstrom.
Scent: Juniper wood. Warm, masculine, and woodsy.
I Like: the juniper-based scent.  I was impressed by how well the cream moisturized my skin.  It was effective at decreasing the appearance of fine lines over time.
Not a fan of: the small size.

Because of its intense hydrating properties and lack of sun protection, I found L’Occitane’s Cade Youth Concentrate for Men most ideal as a nighttime moisturizer.  It worked especially well on the fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes.   Over time (two weeks to be exact), the moisturizer gradually, though not completely, diminished the appearance of those lines.  I enjoyed the scent – a warm, masculine juniper wood fragrance.  Though you only need to apply a little amount each time, I wish the size of this product was larger.  For those of you looking for a relatively natural men’s anti-aging moisturizer, try using L’Occitane’s Cade Youth Concentrate for Men.

Anthony Logistics For Men Oil Free Facial Lotion Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Anthony.com, Sephora, and Amazon.
Scent: Very slight hint of citrus.
I Like: the light consistency. This lotion effectively moisturizes without leaving your skin feeling greasy.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Anthony Logistics for Men Oil Free Facial Lotion is an ideal moisturizer for those with oily and combination skin.  This lightweight lotion hydrates your skin without leaving behind a greasy shine.  Though the lotion claims to be fragrance free, it does have a slight citrusy scent.  This moisturizer does not provide sun protection – remember to put on a sunscreen to complement it if you plan on going out during the day.  I would have given this product five stars if it didn’t contain paraben preservatives.  It’s still a reliable non-greasy men’s face moisturizer nonetheless.

Every Man Jack Fragrance Free Shave Cream Review Sensitive Skin Contest Giveaway Competition Review Caulfields Counter Shaving Men's Grooming

Every Man Jack Fragrance Free Shave Cream

Every Man Jack Fragrance Free Shave Cream Ingredients List Sensitive Skin Review Caulfields Counter Shaving Mens Grooming Male Skin Care

Every Man Jack Fragrance Free Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Target, Every Man Jack, Drugstore.com, and Walgreens.com.
Scent: Fragrance free.
I Liked: the thick consistency, which made for a smooth, comfortable shave.  The unscented cream is especially ideal for those with sensitive skin.  Paraben-free, SLS-free, and not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: nothing.  However, please note that this is a low-foaming shave cream – it does not lather up well with a shave brush.

Every Man Jack’s Fragrance Free Shave Cream is an effective, no frills shaving product with a conscience.  It’s fragrance free and doesn’t contain a lot of the unnecessary synthetic ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin.  The cream’s thick texture allows for a close, comfortable shave.  This shave cream is low-lathering, which is a good thing.  Chances are that if you’re using a cream that lathers up well, it’s probably drying up your skin.  At under ten dollars, Every Man Jack Fragrance Free is one of the best shave cream values available.
