Hugo Naturals All Over Face & Body Lotion - Energizing Grapefruit Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Hugo Naturals, Drugstore.com, and Amazon.
Scent: Honeysuckle and grapefruit – similar to bubblegum.
I like: how natural and versatile (for face and body)  the lotion is.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a great all-around moisturizer.  I look forward to trying some of Hugo’s other products.

Hugo Naturals is a natural skin care brand known for its great smelling products.  Their Energizing Grapefruit All Over Face & Body Lotion is ideal for those who want to keep an uncluttered vanity counter.  I feel comfortable using this product on my face as well as my body because of how natural it is – they keep the synthetic “filler” ingredients to a minimum.  Upon opening the bottle, you will notice a sweet, almost bubblegum-like aroma – I attribute the sweetness to a blend of grapefruit and honeysuckle extracts.  This lotion contains a number of ingredients that benefit the skin including willow bark, shea butter, olive oil, aloe, and chamomile.  If you’re looking for a versatile moisturizer to use on the face and body and don’t mind the sweet smell of honeysuckle, I suggest trying Hugo Naturals Energizing Grapefruit All Over Face & Body Lotion.

Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Aubrey OrganicsDrugstore.com, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Whole Foods Market.
Scent: Natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor .
I Like: that the product is made with 100% natural ingredients.  The cool, tingling feeling of the cream.  Less foam means you can see where you’re shaving.
Not a fan of: how the cream can occasionally clog the razor.

What I enjoy most about using Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream is knowing that it is made with all-natural ingredients and therefore less likely to cause major skin irritation.  The brisk, tingling sensation of the cream may not appeal to all people, but I really enjoyed it – it wakes me up in the morning and makes shaving a bit more exhilarating.  The fragrance is distinctly masculine – a natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor.  Those seeking a lot of lather should look elsewhere – this shave cream does not generate a lot of foam, but it helps provide a slick surface for your razor to glide on.

Soap Deluxe's "Sporty Outgoing" Bar Soap Ingredients List

As someone who is developing a business, I appreciate other emerging business owners who focus on being environmentally-responsible.  One such company is Soap Deluxe, a maker of  natural, cruelty-free handmade soaps based in the United Kingdom.  I met Soap Deluxe’s founder, Philip Woolley, by chance through YouTube.  Philip contacted me one day about one of my videos, “Bar Soap vs. Face or Body Wash – Which One is Better?”  In this video, I tout the advantages of using liquid body washes without really considering the benefits of bar soaps.  With Phillip’s help, I now realize I was generalizing when I spoke about both body washes and bar soaps in the video.  Not all body washes and bar soaps are made the same.  Many commercially-made big brand liquid cleansers and bar soaps contain chemicals that can over-dry and irritate your skin.  What I should have said in the video was pay close attention to the ingredients of the body washes and bar soaps you purchase.  Stick to products with more natural ingredients whenever possible.  Your skin will benefit from it.

Pictured above is Soap Deluxe’s Green bar soap, characterized as “outgoing sporty.”   The scent is a refreshing blend of basil, rosemary, ginger and fennel.  Ideal for use in the morning or after a workout.

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.

Great Value: The Real Shaving Company Shave Cream Sensitive Formula

Scent: Pine with a hint of citrus.
Benefits:  Thick texture allows for a comfortable shave; does not over-dry the skin; great value.

The Real Shaving Company’s Sensitive Formula Shave Cream is an exceptional value.  It outperforms some higher-end brands that cost three to four times as much.  The cream has a wonderfully thick texture that allows for a close, comfortable shave.  A little goes a long way.  I enjoyed its unique masculine scent – pine slightly infused with citrus.  However, some with sensitive noses may find the smell a bit strong.  This shave cream is definitely worth a try.

Burts Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS .
Scent: Natural earthy blend of patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, and calendula.
I Liked: the scent as well as the product’s purity.
I didn’t like: the shave cream’s thin consistency.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream smells wonderful, reminiscent of the scents in some Aveda products.  This 100% natural cream contains a calming blend of a variety of essential oils and extracts including patchouli, bergamot, rosemary, fir, chamomile, and calendula.  In addition to smelling great, this cream soothes while you shave and does not over-dry your skin.  It’s more of an everyday shave cream – I suggest using this product on lighter, one-to-two day beard growth.  The cream’s relatively thin consistency may not be ideal for shaving a thicker, heavier beard.
