Kiehl's Imperial Body Balm review male skincare caulfield's counter stretch marks

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm

Kiehl's Imperial Body Balm Ingredients List review caulfield's counter skincare stretch marks

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50) – Was available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom (now discontinued).
Scent: Sweet blend of honey and spices.
I like: how well this rich body balm moisturizes – contains nourishing ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter.  It smells amazing and puts me in a great mood.
Not a fan of: the price tag, though an eight-ounce tub should last one to two months.

Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm is one of my favorite body moisturizers.  This body balm has so much to like – from its wonderful scent, a calming blend of honey and spices, to its rich, luxurious consistency.  Nourishing ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter help to keep the skin properly moisturized throughout the day.  I especially enjoyed using the product on my arms, legs, back, and chest – the balm prevented my skin from getting dry and itchy.  While this moisturizer does not come cheap (it costs $42 USD for an eight-ounce tub), it certainly spoils you with its relaxing scent and nourishing properties.  Give Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm a try to experience what I just described.

Many guys don’t like to spend the time to shop for skin care.  Even I sometimes get exhausted just trying to figure out what grooming products to try next.  Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer was developed to help men simplify their shaving routines.  It’s basically a shaving oil and an aftershave balm/moisturizer in one convenient all-natural product.  It provides a nice glide for your razor while you shave and helps your skin recover post-shave.   The Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer has a very light consistency and absorbs well into the skin.  It won’t clog pores or razors.  Oils of argan, jojoba, and grapeseed nourish and soothe while peppermint and rosemary refresh and cool.  Lavender (sensitive skin) and Earl Grey (all skin types) options are also available.  If you want to streamline your grooming routine while minimizing bumps and razor burn, try Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer.  It could change the way you shave.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 review Caulfield's Counter face sunscreen

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 ingredients list review Caulfield's Counter face sunscreen

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Walgreens, Target, and Drugstore.com.
Scent: none
I Like: how well the unscented moisturizer works on dry skin.  Also provides UVA/UVB sun protection.
Not a fan of: the silicone (cyclomethicone) and plastic (polymethyl methacrylate) based ingredients.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 was my go-to face moisturizer for a number of years when I first got into skin care.  The product is very basic, but effective for those with dry skin.  It’s unscented, provides moderate sun protection, and moisturizes quite well.  While this moisturizer is lightweight compared to other facial sunscreens I have used, it can leave some shine.  I have combination skin and this product worked particularly well on the dry areas.  While I didn’t experience breakouts using this moisturizer, I have heard of people with sensitive skin experiencing a slight stinging sensation when using it.  If you’re looking for a fragrance-free face moisturizer with UVA/UVB sun protection, Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 is worth trying at least once.  Who knows – maybe it will be your go-to face lotion for years to come.

The Organic Bath Co. Mountain Sage Moisturizer for Men Review Caulfields Counter Male Skin Care Grooming

The Organic Bath Co. Mountain Sage Face & Body Moisturizer for Men

The Organic Bath Co. Mountain Sage Moisturizer for Men Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skin Care Grooming

The Organic Bath Co. Mountain Sage Face & Body Moisturizer for Men Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at The Vitamin Shoppe and Amazon.
Scent: Fresh blend of lemon, eucalyptus, and sage.
I like: how natural the product is.  This versatile lotion absorbs easily into the skin.
Not a fan of: nothing really.  The scent is a bit too lemony for my taste.  However, the smell quickly fades away.

Prior to a recent chance visit to my local Vitamin Shoppe, I had never heard of The Organic Bath Company’s Mountain Sage Face & Body Moisturizer for Men.  The product’s packaging is nothing to write home about.  Let’s be honest – it’s pretty ugly.  What convinced me to purchase this moisturizer was what the product didn’t have: sulfates, parabens, artificial scents, petroleum by-products, and a high price tag.  Nowhere else could I find such a large-sized (14.2 fluid ounces) natural face and body moisturizer for men for under eight dollars.  I like the lotion’s versatility – it really is effective at moisturizing both the face and body.  The lotion’s jojoba oil content nourishes without making your skin feel greasy.  The lemon scent may take some getting used to, but it’s a small price to pay for using such a natural, effective moisturizer.

Soothes Sensitive Skin: Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face Cream

Dr Andrew Weil Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face Cream Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skincare

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Face Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ (over $50) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Soothing blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli.
I like: the soothing herbal scent.  Its thick texture thoroughly moisturizes without leaving a greasy film.
Not a fan of: the high price tag.

I’m a big fan of practically every offering in the Dr. Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom product line.  My favorite product in the line is the Soothing Face Cream.  I love how its intoxicating herbal scent – a natural blend of lavender, orange, and patchouli – puts me in a meditative state.  The rich cream hydrates my skin without leaving it feeling greasy.  A little goes a long way, making the higher price tag easier to digest.  It’s versatile – you can use it day or night.  As with other products in the Dr. Weil line, this cream is made without the unnecessary synthetic ingredients, such as parabens and artificial fragrances/colors, commonly found in skincare products.   I recommend this cream for anyone with sensitive skin who suffers from redness or irritation.
