While rosehip seed oil has long been a natural beauty staple for women, men have yet to widely adopt and experience its remarkable skin care benefits.  There is no reason men can’t implement rosehip seed oil into their grooming routines.  Rosehip seed oil is packed with essential fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-3, as well as pro-vitamin A, all of which contribute to smoother, healthier skin.  Here are three simple ways guys can use rosehip seed oil to achieve a better complexion:

  1. Rosehip Seed Oil as an Aftershave
    Once you’re done shaving, rinse and pat dry your face.  Next, rub a couple drops of rosehip seed oil between your fingertips and palms and gently apply to your cheeks, chin, neck, and area around your mouth.
  2. Rosehip Seed Oil as a Daytime Moisturizer
    Rosehip seed oil will keep your skin properly moisturized throughout the day when applied every morning.  After every face wash, simply rub a couple drops between the fingertips and palms and gently apply to all areas of the face, paying particular attention to areas susceptible to fine lines and creases.
  3. Rosehip Seed Oil as a Nighttime Moisturizer/Anti-Aging Serum
    When used every night before bedtime, rosehip seed oil produces a noticeable improvement in facial complexion and skin tone.  Wash your face very night with water or a mild cleanser to get rid dirt and debris accumulated throughout the day. Next, rub a couple drops between the fingertips and palms and gently apply to all areas of the face and neck. Don’t forget to moisturize your forehead as well.  Follow these steps and you will wake up flake-free with a confident glow.

Adopting rosehip seed oil into your daily skin care routine might take a little time to get used to, but the results are undoubtedly worth it.  If you’re constantly battling a dry face and uneven complexion, maybe it’s time you consider ditching what you’re using as a moisturizer and experience the natural skin care wonder that is rosehip seed oil.  May this bit of advice help you achieve greater confidence.  Cheers!

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender review Caulfield's Counter men's grooming male skincare

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender ingredients list review Caulfield's Counter men's grooming male skincare

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at eShave and Amazon.
Scent: natural lavender.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively soothes and moisturizes skin.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Many of us underestimate the importance of moisturizing immediately after shaving.  In addition to getting rid of hair, shaving removes a fine layer of skin (troubling thought, right?).  If you don’t apply an alcohol-free aftershave balm or moisturizer, your skin suffers – first with redness and irritation, and ultimately with premature aging.  eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother helps to keep skin soothed and nourished throughout the day.  It’s a relatively light lotion with a relaxing lavender scent.  The lotion absorbs easily into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy shine.  At $27 for a six ounce bottle, eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother is a healthy but worthwhile investment for those looking to maintain their youthful, good looks.

Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades Review Caulfield's Counter Men's Grooming Male Skincare

Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Amazon, West Coast Shaving and Grooming Lounge.
Scent: N/A
I like: the quality of the blades.  Gives you a close shave with minimal irritation (as long as you change the blade out every 3-5 shaves).  Great value.
Not a fan of: nothing.

Different blades work well with different people.  While the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades worked very well with my skin and beard, they might not be as effective for others.  If you’re new to wet shaving, buy a sample pack of various blades and test them to see which ones give you the smoothest shaves with minimal cuts and irritation.  I used the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades with my old school Gillette Tech razor made decades ago.  It was a match made in shave heaven.  These fine Astra blades balanced out my relatively heavy Gillette Tech razor nicely.  All I had to do was guide the razor across the surface of my skin – no pressure was necessary.  The best thing about the Astra Superior Premium Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades is the price.  If you’re switching from disposable cartridge razors, you will notice the savings immediately.  Thanks to all of you who suggested I switch to wet shaving.  I am converted.

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub review ingredients list male skincare men's grooming Caulfield's Counter exfoliate

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Lucky Tiger, Amazon, & Swanson Vitamins.
Scent: citrus with a hint of honey.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively gets rid of dead skin and debris.  Great for before shaving
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and BHT ingredients.

Gently exfoliating once or twice a week can help keep your complexion clear.  Face scrubs lift debris and dead skin cells that may be trapped in pores.  Lucky Tiger Face Scrub works particularly well for me before I shave.  The scent is a pleasant, uplifting blend of citrus and honey.  It contains some great natural ingredients including jojoba oil, green tea, hibiscus, borage oil, and honey.  Those with sensitive skin take note: the product’s exfoliating bits are not very fine, so you have to be extra gentle when scrubbing your skin.
