Kiehls Cross-Terrain All-In-One Refueling Wash Product Review Caulfields Counter Body Face Shampoo Men Male Skincare Mens Grooming

Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain All-In-One Refueling Wash

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
Scent: Somewhat woodsy with a hint of pear.  Menthol provides a tingling sensation.
I liked: how refreshing it felt in the shower.  This all-one-cleanser is free of parabens and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  Guys will find this product convenient – it really is gentle enough to use all over your body.
I didn’t like: the scent at first.  The fragrance was quite strong when I smelled it out of the tube.  However, I grew to like the scent after a couple of uses.

Here it is, guys.  An all-in-one cleanser I can finally advocate using.  Unlike a number of other all-in-one washes for the body, face, and hair, Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain ‘All-in-One’ Refueling Wash effectively cleans you from head to toe and wakes up the senses with a crisp, clean scent – all without the use of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and parabens.  The scent was a bit strong at first (note: I sniffed it directly from the tube).  However, when I used it in the shower, the fragrance was more balanced and pleasant.  Menthol and citrus oils help energize while aloe vera and vitamin E help soothe and keep the skin from over-drying.  If you need an all-in-one wash for the gym, consider this gentle yet effective option.

Kiehls Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 Texture

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, Grooming Lounge, and Bloomingdale’s.
Scent: No noticeable fragrance.
I liked: how easy it was to apply.  This sunscreen won’t drip into the eyes like lotions can.  The compact container and texture makes it convenient to travel with and carry without having to worry about spillage.  The high SPF is ideal for adventure seekers and summer tourists alike.
I didn’t like: the texture at first.  The solid wax-like consistency took some getting used to.  However, once applied on the skin, the product absorbed quickly.

Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 is an ideal sunscreen for anyone who is exposed to the Sun for an extended period of time.  I had some doubts when I first saw the product – unlike most other sunscreens, the Cross-Terrain Face Protector has a solid texture.  I wrongly assumed the wax-like consistency meant a heavier feeling on my face.  My skin adapted quickly to the product.  It felt no weightier than the face moisturizers I typically use.  Don’t let the small size fool you – this stuff packs a protective punch and will last a while.  Those with sensitive skin will appreciate the lack of a scent.  Though this sunscreen is water and sweat resistant, I recommend reapplication after a swim or workout.  Ingredients squalane and synthetic beeswax help to keep skin moisturized.
