Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Day Face Oil Review

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Day Face Oil Ingredients List Review Image

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-50 for 1.0 fl oz.) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: subtle orange.
I like: how easily the oil absorbs into the skin. The liquid is non-greasy and leaves a satin feel.
Not a fan of: nothing. This is one of the better face serums available on the market that is actually worth the higher price.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate is a light, effective daily facial moisturizer worth its price. The liquid is vividly golden with a subtle orange scent. The consistency of the serum is very light and absorbs into the skin incredibly well, leaving a smooth satin finish. The directions instruct the user to massage 2-3 drops per application, but you might need more depending on your skin type. I use approximately five drops per application for my entire face as the weather in Southern California is consistently dry. One bottle (1 fl oz.) should last about one to two months. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate is definitely worth the investment if you’re seeking a light, non-greasy nourishing daily face moisturizer.

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub review ingredients list male skincare men's grooming Caulfield's Counter exfoliate

Lucky Tiger Face Scrub Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Lucky Tiger, Amazon, & Swanson Vitamins.
Scent: citrus with a hint of honey.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively gets rid of dead skin and debris.  Great for before shaving
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and BHT ingredients.

Gently exfoliating once or twice a week can help keep your complexion clear.  Face scrubs lift debris and dead skin cells that may be trapped in pores.  Lucky Tiger Face Scrub works particularly well for me before I shave.  The scent is a pleasant, uplifting blend of citrus and honey.  It contains some great natural ingredients including jojoba oil, green tea, hibiscus, borage oil, and honey.  Those with sensitive skin take note: the product’s exfoliating bits are not very fine, so you have to be extra gentle when scrubbing your skin.

Bulldog Original Shave Gel Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Bulldog, Abe’s Market, and Whole Foods Markets.
Scent: Natural masculine blend of patchouli, lime and other citrus oils.
I like: the natural ingredients and gentleness of the product.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a fantastic shave gel without the harsh synthetic ingredients generally found in many shave gels and foams

Bulldog Natural Skincare’s Original Shave Gel does one thing incredibly well: it provides a clear, thick layer of protection between my razor and skin without the use of synthetic fragrances that can typically irritate sensitive skin.  The scent is the same as other Bulldog products – a natural blend of citrus and patchouli.  Considering its reasonable price of ten dollars and that it’s made in England with some awesome ingredients, this shave gel is a great value and definitely worth trying.

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.

Anthony Logistics For Men Oil Free Facial Lotion Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Anthony.com, Sephora, and Amazon.
Scent: Very slight hint of citrus.
I Like: the light consistency. This lotion effectively moisturizes without leaving your skin feeling greasy.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Anthony Logistics for Men Oil Free Facial Lotion is an ideal moisturizer for those with oily and combination skin.  This lightweight lotion hydrates your skin without leaving behind a greasy shine.  Though the lotion claims to be fragrance free, it does have a slight citrusy scent.  This moisturizer does not provide sun protection – remember to put on a sunscreen to complement it if you plan on going out during the day.  I would have given this product five stars if it didn’t contain paraben preservatives.  It’s still a reliable non-greasy men’s face moisturizer nonetheless.

Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS.
Scent: Mildly masculine blend of bergamot, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.
I like: the lotion’s gentleness, light consistency, all natural ingredients, mild scent, and versatility – it works as an aftershave/moisturizer. Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: nothing.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave works well on practically any skin type.  Just because the packaging says “aftershave” doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an everyday moisturizer – it’s versatile, though you’ll need to apply a facial sunscreen with this product if you’re going out during the day .  Because the lotion is 100% natural, it is ideal for those with sensitive skin who tend to breakout when using products with synthetic fragrances.  The subtle, naturally masculine scent is just right – it’s a blend of bergamot, lemon, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.  If you’ve been using synthetic or alcohol-based aftershaves, now is the time for you to transition to more natural alternatives.  Start by trying this great moisturizer.
