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.

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.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo Review Caulfield's Counter Haircare Hair Dandruff Cooling Men Women

An all-around great shampoo: Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Mint with subtle rosemary.
I Liked: the natural, refreshing scent and mild tingle.  My hair felt clean and my scalp felt energized after using this shampoo. Ideal for use on normal to oily hair.
Not a fan of: nothing. However, those with dry hair may want to explore other options or use this shampoo sparingly – maybe once every few days.

What I enjoyed most about using Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo were a) the scent and b) the cooling effect it had on my scalp.  The smell is a natural, invigorating blend of… drumroll please… rosemary and peppermint.  The fragrance is evident but not overwhelming – it’s just the right amount.  This shampoo left a pleasant, mild tingling sensation on my scalp.  I highly recommend this product for those of you with shorter hair who enjoy using a thoroughly cleansing shampoo, as it effectively lifts oil.

Kiehls Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap Review Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skincare mens grooming exfoliate

Kiehl's Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap with Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Refreshing citrus.
I Liked: the scent, its effectiveness at exfoliating, and how long the bar lasted.
I didn’t like: nothing.  However, those with body acne or other skin conditions may want to consider a less-abrasive exfoliating soap or cleanser.

I’m normally not a fan of bar soaps, as most of them typically contain harsh synthetic ingredients that over-dry and irritate the skin.  Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap is an exception.  It has an invigorating citrus scent that is masculine, but not overpowering.  The combination of bran, oatmeal, and pumice effectively sloughs away dull, flaky skin.  Because the soap is quite abrasive, I do not recommend using it on the face or on any area of the body with acne.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well the bar held up in the shower.  It didn’t get soft like the majority of the soaps I’ve used.  Spoil yourself by giving this refreshing, exfoliating bar soap a try.

Want a shot at winning this great Kiehl’s product?

Stretch marks suck.  They occur when the skin can’t keep up with the rapid growth of the body due to weight gain,  hormones/puberty/growth spurts, or muscle building.  They easily appear but they don’t naturally completely disappear.  Try stretching a thick, old rubber band and you’ll see what essentially happens to the skin when it expands too quickly.  Stretch marks affect a number of people, from pregnant women to male athletes.  We can’t escape them, but we can do our best to avoid them.  Here are some simple over-the-counter tips to keep the stretch marks to a minimum:

Prevention

Regularly moisturize any areas of the body that stretch with lotions or creams containing shea or cocoa butter as well as vitamin e.  Natural serums and oils rich in vitamin e, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids such as 100% pure argan oil also work well at preventing stretch marks and scars by nourishing the skin and helping to increase the skin’s elasticity.  Areas of the body that are susceptible to stretch marks include the upper arms, underarms, pectorals, thighs, hips, back, breasts, around the knees, belly (front and sides), and buttocks.  If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try using pure shea or cocoa butter.  While extremely viscous and nutty smelling, these butters help make the skin much more elastic and thus more adaptable to rapid expansion.

Body creams made with shea or cocoa butter aid in making the skin more elastic.

Over-the Counter Treatment

There is no true natural remedy for treating existing stretch marks.  You can, however, help diminish the appearance of stretch marks by regularly applying scar gels such as Mederma and Derma E.  Keep in mind that if you use scar gels, they should be applied five times daily in order for them to be somewhat effective.  Don’t expect miracles.  If you’re lucky, you may notice some slight improvement over a two month period of using scar gels.
