Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser ingredients review face wash normal oily skin Caulfield's Counter skincare beauty style

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Drugstore.com, Walgreens, and Ulta.
Scent: hard to describe “masking fragrance.”
I Like: how relatively gentle the cleanser is.  Low foaming.
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and paraben ingredients.  Don’t care for the synthetic scent.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is a good face wash to start with if you’re new to skin care.  It’s fairly inexpensive and much gentler on your skin than your typical bar soap.  This product is made for people with normal to oily skin, so if you have overly-sensitive skin, then I suggest using a face wash that is fragrance-free and made without sodium laureth sulphate, a known skin irritant.  What I like most about Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is that it’s a clear, low-foaming gel that doesn’t dry out the skin too much.  I found the synthetic fragrance a little off-putting, but not unbearable.  Give this product a try if you’re tired of using that bar of Dial on your face.

malin + goetz grapefruit face cleanser caulfields counter male skincare mens skin care sensitive product review & and malin+goetz malin&goetz

Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Malin+Goetz, Bloomingdale’s, and Bigelow Chemists.
Scent: Light grapefruit.
I liked: how gentle this cleanser was on my face.  It got rid of the dirt without over-drying my skin.  The subtle smell of grapefruit was a nice, refreshing touch.
I didn’t like: nothing.  However, guys may be hesitant to spend $30 on a face cleanser.

Less is more when it comes to Malin+Goetz’s Grapefruit Face Cleanser.  This face wash effectively removes dirt without stripping the skin of vital oils.  It is clear and colorless, with a slight grapefruit scent.   The biggest thing I notice when using this cleanser is the lack of lather – which means it is gentle and doesn’t over-dry the skin.  I used this face wash day and night with excellent  results – no breakouts or signs of irritation.  As usual, I immediately moisturized after every cleansing.  The product’s thick texture allows you to use a little each time – which, even at $30, makes it a good value.

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.

How to Prep, Shave, and Soothe Your Handsome Face Caulfields Counter

  • Properly preparing your face by washing with warm water and a gentle face wash can help you achieve a smoother shave.  Washing your face removes the dirt and debris that can hinder the glide of your razor.  Using a gentle face scrub twice a week will optimize the shaving experience.
  • When using shave cream, start by applying to the areas with toughest beard growth such as the chin.  This gives the cream more time to penetrate and soften the beard.
  • Nothing can hurt your face more than using a worn-out razor.  Switch out your blade(s) the moment you notice your razor becoming dull.  Signs include increased post-shave irritation/razor burn and frequent cuts.
  • Always moisturize and condition your face with an alcohol-free aftershave balm or lotion. Don’t skimp in this department – one layer is usually not enough.  Continue to apply until any sign of discomfort or irritation is gone and your face is properly moisturized.
  • If you shower after you shave, be sure to moisturize again after showering.
