EO Everyone Lotion Coconut and Lemon Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at EO Products, Drugstore.com and Amazon.
Scent: Delicious blend of lemon tart with a hint of coconut.
I like: the price, light consistency, lemony scent, and versatility.  Made with mostly natural ingredients.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a great moisturizer, especially for warm weather.

EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon effectively moisturizes the body and face.  The first thing I notice when using the lotion is the lovely lemony scent.  It’s what I imagine a freshly baked lemon custard and toasted coconut pie would smell like if grandma made it.  The smell is that good.  The light consistency of the lotion makes it easy to spread.  You can feel confident about using this product on your face as it absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.  Because the lotion is so light, you’ll want to reapply it throughout the day to keep your skin properly moisturized.  At under ten dollars for thirty-two fluid ounces, EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon is a must-try.

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.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 ingredients list review Caulfield's Counter face sunscreen

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Walgreens, Target, and Drugstore.com.
Scent: none
I Like: how well the unscented moisturizer works on dry skin.  Also provides UVA/UVB sun protection.
Not a fan of: the silicone (cyclomethicone) and plastic (polymethyl methacrylate) based ingredients.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 was my go-to face moisturizer for a number of years when I first got into skin care.  The product is very basic, but effective for those with dry skin.  It’s unscented, provides moderate sun protection, and moisturizes quite well.  While this moisturizer is lightweight compared to other facial sunscreens I have used, it can leave some shine.  I have combination skin and this product worked particularly well on the dry areas.  While I didn’t experience breakouts using this moisturizer, I have heard of people with sensitive skin experiencing a slight stinging sensation when using it.  If you’re looking for a fragrance-free face moisturizer with UVA/UVB sun protection, Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 is worth trying at least once.  Who knows – maybe it will be your go-to face lotion for years to come.

Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion Review Caulfield's Counter Male Skincare men's grooming pimples zits salicylic acid treatment

Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion Ingredients List review Caulfield's Counter

Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and Walmart.
Scent: Lemongrass
I Like: that it’s an all-natural acne treatment lotion. Great for use as an aftershave as well.
Not a fan of: the thick, somewhat sticky feel.

Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion is a reliable all-natural acne treatment if used daily.  Its active ingredient is salicylic acid, an anti-inflammatory compound sourced from willow bark.  Because this product contains salicylic acid and provides no sun protection, I suggest combining it during the day with your go-to SPF lotion to obtain the benefits of both moisturizers.  Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Daily Moisturizing Lotion also works well as an aftershave due to its anti-inflammatory properties – this especially applies to those who frequently suffer from razor burn or razor bumps.  One drawback is the lotion’s texture – my face felt a bit sticky and tight immediately after application.  I suppose it’s one of the trade-offs of using an all-natural moisturizing acne treatment.  The product has a light lemongrass scent – slightly herbal and lemony.  I suggest trying this face lotion if you want to manage occasional breakouts.  Its relatively low one percent salicylic acid content may not be enough to make a noticeable difference for those with highly problematic skin.

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Murad, Ulta, and Amazon.
Scent: very subtle hint of geranium.
I Like: how the lotion is light and easily absorbed.  Keeps the skin moisturized without that greasy feeling.  Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Murad’s Face Defense SPF 15 lotion for men moisturizes well without leaving my skin feeling greasy, which is relatively rare for a sunscreen.  The lotion absorbs quickly, almost immediately after applying.  Its scent is hardly noticeable – those with a keen sense of smell might detect a hint of geranium.  This lightweight facial sunscreen does not come cheap – a two-ounce tube lasting 1-2 months costs $33.  If you have the disposable income to spend on an effective, non-greasy facial moisturizer with sunscreen, try using Murad Man Face Defense SPF 15.  You just might like it.

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.
