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.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ (over $50) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Soothing blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli.
I like: the soothing herbal scent.  Its thick texture thoroughly moisturizes without leaving a greasy film.
Not a fan of: the high price tag.

I’m a big fan of practically every offering in the Dr. Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom product line.  My favorite product in the line is the Soothing Face Cream.  I love how its intoxicating herbal scent – a natural blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli – puts me in a meditative state.  The rich cream hydrates my skin without leaving it feeling greasy.  A little goes a long way, making the higher price tag easier to digest.  It’s versatile – you can use it day or night.  As with other products in the Dr. Weil line, this cream is made without the unnecessary synthetic ingredients, such as parabens and artificial fragrances/colors, commonly found in skincare products.   I recommend this cream for anyone with sensitive skin who suffers from redness or irritation.

Zirh Protect Daily Face Moisturizer Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Zirh.
Scent: Light citrus.
I Liked: how light the product felt.  It moisturized without feeling greasy.
I didn’t like: the paraben preservatives.

Zirh’s Protect Daily Face Moisturizer is a lightweight face lotion that does a good job at moisturizing without leaving a greasy shine.  It has a light citrus-like fragrance that even those with sensitive noses should find tolerable, if not enjoyable. Avocado oil and Vitamin E moisturize while Allantoin helps to soothe the skin – which makes this an ideal post-shave moisturizer.  Fans of anti-aging products will appreciate the skin regenerating properties of its alpha-hydroxy acid content.  Because this moisturizer lacks significant sun protection, it is a better option for those days spent mainly at home or in the office.

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50) – Available at Malin + Goetz and Barneys New York.
Scent: Unscented.
I like: how well this product works on breakout-prone skin – most likely due to the salicylic acid content.  Keeps the redness and irritation in check.
I didn’t like: the rigid bottle.  I would have preferred a squeeze tube – it’s a much easier way to get the moisturizer out.

Anyone battling acne and redness of the skin should seriously consider trying the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer.  The product is lightweight, unscented, and contains salicylic acid, which effectively controls breakouts.  Vitamin E and panthenol moisturize while chamomile and allantoin soothe.  Despite its higher price tag, this face moisturizer is a great value considering what it’s capable of doing for those with problem skin.  Don’t hesitate to buy this.  It’ll boost your confidence.  Really.

Kiehl’s Ultimate Mens After Shave Balm and Moisturizer won me over as soon as I tried it.  I enjoyed how rich and thick this balm felt.  Natural ingredients such as avocado oil, sesame seed oil, olive oil, and cocoa butter helped to instantly soothe and moisturize my skin post-shave.  Because the cream is so rich, you only need to apply a small amount.  The light traces of menthol and camphor felt subtly invigorating.  You can use this product any time, day or night – not just after shaving.  This cream works particularly well in cold and/or dry weather.
