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.

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.

L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Nordstrom, Amazon, and L’Occitane.
Scent: Woodsy blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch.
I Liked: how well this product worked as a moisturizer.  The balm effectively soothed my skin and provided relief from razor burn.
Not a fan of: the potency of the scent.  I would like this product even more if the scent was less obvious.

L’Occitane’s Cade After Shave Balm is more like a face cream.  Its texture is very thick, which makes it better suited as a fall/winter moisturizer.  At $30 for a 2.5 ounce tube, this balm is relatively expensive.  However, a little of it goes a long way.  You should be able to get at least  four months of use out of one tube.  I enjoyed the scent despite how strong it was.  The fragrance is a blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch with a hint of baby powder – it sounds like an odd combination but those scents somehow work well together.  Try it if you have dry skin or constantly suffer from razor burn.

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.

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.

How to Prep, Shave, and Soothe Your Handsome Face Caulfields Counter

  • Properly preparing your face by washing with warm water and a gentle face wash can help you achieve a smoother shave.  Washing your face removes the dirt and debris that can hinder the glide of your razor.  Using a gentle face scrub twice a week will optimize the shaving experience.
  • When using shave cream, start by applying to the areas with toughest beard growth such as the chin.  This gives the cream more time to penetrate and soften the beard.
  • Nothing can hurt your face more than using a worn-out razor.  Switch out your blade(s) the moment you notice your razor becoming dull.  Signs include increased post-shave irritation/razor burn and frequent cuts.
  • Always moisturize and condition your face with an alcohol-free aftershave balm or lotion. Don’t skimp in this department – one layer is usually not enough.  Continue to apply until any sign of discomfort or irritation is gone and your face is properly moisturized.
  • If you shower after you shave, be sure to moisturize again after showering.

Check out the video below for a step-by-step demonstration:
