Apricot Kernel Oil is an effective, all-natural way to regulate your skin’s oil production.  High in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E, this light oil is ideal for oily and normal skin types.  Apricot Kernel Oil also works well on mature skin, especially on the areas around the eyes and throat, because of its tightening and astringent properties.  When purchasing natural beauty oils, be sure they are cold- or expeller-pressed.  I also recommend buying natural beauty oils that come in amber-colored bottles.  The colored bottles help protect the precious oils from light, thus maintaining the oil’s effectiveness.

Kiehl's Imperial Body Balm review male skincare caulfield's counter stretch marks

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm

Kiehl's Imperial Body Balm Ingredients List review caulfield's counter skincare stretch marks

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50) – Was available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom (now discontinued).
Scent: Sweet blend of honey and spices.
I like: how well this rich body balm moisturizes – contains nourishing ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter.  It smells amazing and puts me in a great mood.
Not a fan of: the price tag, though an eight-ounce tub should last one to two months.

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm is one of my favorite body moisturizers.  This body balm has so much to like – from its wonderful scent, a calming blend of honey and spices, to its rich, luxurious consistency.  Nourishing ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter help to keep the skin properly moisturized throughout the day.  I especially enjoyed using the product on my arms, legs, back, and chest – the balm prevented my skin from getting dry and itchy.  While this moisturizer does not come cheap (it costs $42 USD for an eight-ounce tub), it certainly spoils you with its relaxing scent and nourishing properties.  Give Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm a try to experience what I just described.

Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunscreen Fragrance Free Mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunscreen Fragrance Free Mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Ingredients List Caulfield's Counter Skincare review beauty grooming skin cancer prevention

Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunscreen Fragrance Free Mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (approximately $10) – Available at Alba Botanica, Vitacost, and Whole Foods Markets.
Scent: Fragrance free.
I like: that this is a mineral sunscreen.  Effective in preventing sunburn.  Stays on while you swim.
Not a fan of: the very thick consistency – makes it a little harder to apply.  May leave a white film on the skin.  Great stuff nonetheless.

Alba Botanica’s Natural Very Emollient Mineral Sunblock SPF 30 is a fantastic alternative to the chemical sunscreens that are commonly found in drug stores.  Mineral and chemical sunscreens differ in one major way.  Mineral sunscreens provide a physical barrier of protection (usually consisting of  zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide) between the skin and the sun.  They block and deflect the Sun’s harmful rays.  Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand,  absorb Sun rays.  This relatively natural, unscented product works quite well at preventing sunburn as long as you reapply after swimming or excessive sweating.  The cream’s texture is thick, making it a little harder to spread, and can leave a white film.  That’s the tradeoff of using a mineral sunblock.  Nourishing ingredients in this product include grapeseed oil and jojoba oil. Try Alba Botanica’s Natural Very Emollient Mineral Sunblock SPF 30 if you’re thinking about making the switch from chemical sunscreens.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream review dry sensitive skin caulfields counter male skincare mens grooming

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Ingredients review dry sensitive skin male skincare mens grooming

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Walmart, Target, and Walgreens.
Scent: Fragrance free
I Like: how rich and easily spreadable the cream is.  Moisturizes body and face.  Effectively treats dry, irritated skin.  A good value.
Not a fan of: the petroleum-based ingredients.

Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream is a fantastic gateway moisturizer for those who are not too concerned about how natural their skin care products are.  This widely-available unscented cream effectively moisturizes dry, sensitive skin on the body as well as the face.  Its consistency is extremely thick – similar to that of Crisco, but nowhere near as greasy.  What impresses me most about the cream is how quickly it alleviates dryness.  The product leaves behind a slightly greasy film, but it becomes hardly noticeable ten minutes after application.  If you’re still using your girlfriend’s synthetic berry-scented lotion, you should consider moving on to a fragrance-free alternative such as Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream.  It does a better job at moisturizing without making you smell like an air freshener.

Argan oil for acne, skin, face, hair and more. Beta Naturals Argan Oil review.

Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil

Argan oil for acne, skin, face, hair and more. Beta Naturals Argan Oil review and ingredients.

Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Beta Naturals and Amazon.
Scent: None.
I like: how well this product moisturizes without leaving your skin greasy. It is all-natural and absorbs easily into the skin.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a phenomenal versatile moisturizer that works particularly well for those with dry skin.

Argan oil might be the single most nourishing natural skin care ingredient available on the market.  My research into this awesome extract eventually led me to launch a skin care company.  Prior to starting Beta Naturals,  I couldn’t find a lot of information relating to men on the use of argan oil.  If you’re a guy and this is the first time you’re hearing about argan oil, then it is my absolute pleasure to educate you on its benefits.  I love how versatile Beta Naturals Pure Argan Oil is.  I use it in the morning as a naturally soothing aftershave and before bed as a nighttime moisturizer for the face and eye area.  The high vitamin e content in this product helps the skin recover quickly from shaving.  Essential fatty acids make Beta Naturals Argan Oil an ideal anti-aging product as well.  Don’t let the word “oil” fool you into thinking it is thick and greasy – on the contrary, the consistency of the product is very light and absorbs easily into the skin.  Any initial shine dissipates quickly.  It does not clog pores and works well at regulating oil production – my skin does not overcompensate and produce excess oil whenever I use the product.  Beta Naturals Pure Argan Oil has no scent, nutty or otherwise, and won’t interfere with any fragrances you might be wearing.  The one ounce bottle may seem small, but it packs a punch – a little goes a very long way in moisturizing – I usually just rub 1-2 drops between the fingertips and apply.  Now that I have opened your eyes to the wonderful world of Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil, are adventurous enough to try it?
