Kiehl's Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Light menthol with a hint of citrus.
I Like: how light the moisturizer feels.  The cooling effect helps to wake me up.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men effectively moisturizes your face without making it feel overly greasy.  I enjoy how the lotion feels slightly cool – perfect for the mornings or any time I need a recharge.  It contains caffeine, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties – great for soothing razor burn.  Because this product doesn’t provide sun protection, it’s more ideal for use indoors or at night.  Sun worshippers needn’t worry – Kiehl’s also makes a sunscreen version of this moisturizer with a sun protection factor of 15.

Lab Series Max LS Instant Eye Lift Tube with Pump Dispenser

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50) – Available at Lab Series, Macy’s, and Sephora.
Scent: None
I liked: how it tightened the area around my eyes and made my dark circles less noticeable.
I didn’t like: the pump dispenser.

The MAX LS Instant Eye Lift by Lab Series is a great eye cream specifically targeted at men.  It is very light in texture and fragrance-free.   What I noticed first when using this product was how effective it was at lightening the dark circles around my eyes – note: the effect was temporary but much appreciated nonetheless.  In addition to providing a slight tingling sensation to awaken my eyes, this cream tightened the skin which made my crows feet a little less noticeable.  It did a fairly good job at minimizing eye puffiness.  Standout ingredients include: cucumber, caffeine, algae, sweet almond, green tea, aloe, and vitamin E.  Some may appreciate the unique pump dispenser – I, however, was not a big fan of it.  I worry that when I get to the end of the tube I’ll have to cut it open to dispense the remaining amount.  If you have the cash to spend on a higher-end eye cream that works well at treating dark circles, lines, and puffiness around the eyes, Lab Series Max LS Instant Eye Lift is a candidate worth considering.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream Texture

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Undetectable.
I liked: that the eye cream was effective at lightening dark circles and decreasing puffiness around the eyes.  Its thick texture helped to keep the area around my eyes moisturized.
I didn’t like: the initial invigorating sensation.  It almost does too good a job at “waking” your eyes up.

Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream is a great non-gender specific moisturizer that effectively lightens dark circles and  decreases puffiness around the eyes.  It contains panax ginseng, caffeine from coffee, and “natural optic brighteners” to revive tired-looking eyes.  Be careful not to apply too much of this eye cream at once.  My eyes initially watered because I used a generous amount of the product around the eyes – they felt way too invigorated (perhaps too much of a good thing?).  At .5 ounces, a jar of Origins Ginzing eye cream is easy to carry around and will come in handy on mornings after those fun but rough nights.
