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.

The Real Shaving Company Sensitive Shaving Gel Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at The Real Shaving Company and Rite Aid Pharmacy.
Scent: masculine cologne-like fragrance.
I Like: the product’s clarity and thick consistency.  Great value.
Not a fan of: the strong scent.

Are you a shaving aficionado on a tight budget?  The Real Shaving Company’s Sensitive Shaving Gel is proof that you can get a quality English-made shave product for about five dollars.  What I enjoy most about this shave gel is its thickness and clarity.  The thickness provides a nice buffer to protect your skin while getting a close shave.  The clear gel allows you to see exactly what you’re shaving – ideal for those delicate, hard to reach places near the earlobes and under nose.  The aloe in the product helps to alleviate razor burn.  The cologne-like scent is quite strong, but I suppose you can’t ask for too much when you’re paying five bucks.

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.

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.
