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.

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.

L'Occitane Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at L’OccitaneShopstyle, and Amazon.
Scent: Fresh, floral, and slightly citrusy.
I Like: the light texture, relatively high sun protection, and convenient size.
Not a fan of: the strong floral fragrance.

L’Occitane’s Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 is a great face lotion for guys on the go.  Its compact size and pump dispenser makes it easy to apply anytime, anywhere – it’s especially convenient for travelling.  Despite the lotion’s light texture, a little goes a long way.  The 1.7 fluid ounce tube should last you 2-3 months with typical use.  I am not particularly fond of the strong the floral scent – it could use a little toning down.  If you don’t mind floral fragrances, then L’Occitane’s Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 is definitely worth trying.

Burts Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS .
Scent: Natural earthy blend of patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, and calendula.
I Liked: the scent as well as the product’s purity.
I didn’t like: the shave cream’s thin consistency.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream smells wonderful, reminiscent of the scents in some Aveda products.  This 100% natural cream contains a calming blend of a variety of essential oils and extracts including patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, fir, chamomile, and calendula.  In addition to smelling great, this cream soothes while you shave and does not over-dry your skin.  It’s more of an everyday shave cream – I suggest using this product on lighter, one-to-two day beard growth.  The cream’s relatively thin consistency may not be ideal for shaving a thicker, heavier beard.

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.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream Texture

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) 4 oz. tube – Available at Malin+Goetz, Grooming Lounge, and Barneys New York.
Scent: Menthol.
I liked: how cooling and invigorating it felt – no other shave cream comes close in this department.  It rinsed easily off the blade and did not dry out my skin.
I didn’t like: Nothing.  However, the major cooling sensation and price tag may take some getting used to.

It felt as if my face was in the Arctic when I used the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream.  I have never experienced a more cooling shave cream.  The menthol really packs a powerful punch – ideal for those mornings when you need a little help waking up.  Because this shave cream doesn’t really lather up it didn’t over-dry my skin – I’m sure the extra boost of vitamin e doesn’t hurt.  Unlike some thick creams out there, this one didn’t clog up my razor cartridge – which I greatly appreciate since they cost a fortune to replace.  Four ounces of this frigid goodness will cost you $22 – worth trying if you’re man enough to face its chill.
