Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★½
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, and Barneys New York.
Scent: subtle floral notes.
I Like: how well the shampoo nourishes and cleans without stripping away oil.
Not a fan of: the SLS and parfum/fragrance ingredients.

Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is one of the most nourishing shampoos I’ve used in some time.  The shampoo has a creamy texture that squeezes out cleanly.  The scent is slightly floral with very subtle citrus notes.  Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is concentrated, so a little goes a long way.  That little amount of shampoo thoroughly cleans without leaving the hair feeling dry and stripped of its natural oil.  If you have dry hair, Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo is a luxurious splurge worth investing in.

EO Everyone Lotion Coconut and Lemon Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at EO Products, Drugstore.com and Amazon.
Scent: Delicious blend of lemon tart with a hint of coconut.
I like: the price, light consistency, lemony scent, and versatility.  Made with mostly natural ingredients.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a great moisturizer, especially for warm weather.

EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon effectively moisturizes the body and face.  The first thing I notice when using the lotion is the lovely lemony scent.  It’s what I imagine a freshly baked lemon custard and toasted coconut pie would smell like if grandma made it.  The smell is that good.  The light consistency of the lotion makes it easy to spread.  You can feel confident about using this product on your face as it absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.  Because the lotion is so light, you’ll want to reapply it throughout the day to keep your skin properly moisturized.  At under ten dollars for thirty-two fluid ounces, EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon is a must-try.

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Baxter of California, Beauty.com, and Barneys New York.
Scent: mild blend of mint and tea tree.
I Like: the subtle, refreshing mint and tea tree scent.
Not a fan of: the SLS and methylparaben.

Baxter of California’s Daily Protein Shampoo is a minty smelling hair wash that invigorates the senses.  The shampoo comes in a nice-looking opaque blue bottle with a convenient pump dispenser.  The refreshing scent is a mild blend of mint and tea tree – perfect for those mornings when you need an extra boost to help wake you up.  The shampoo produces a noticeable amount of lather and cleans hair very well, which makes the product better suited for those with oily hair.  Guys with fine hair may want to limit usage of this shampoo to 2-3 times a week.  Splurge on Baxter of California’s Daily Protein Shampoo if you have oily hair and some extra cash.

Apricot Kernel Oil is an effective, all-natural way to regulate your skin’s oil production.  High in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E, this light oil is ideal for oily and normal skin types.  Apricot Kernel Oil also works well on mature skin, especially on the areas around the eyes and throat, because of its tightening and astringent properties.  When purchasing natural beauty oils, be sure they are cold- or expeller-pressed.  I also recommend buying natural beauty oils that come in amber-colored bottles.  The colored bottles help protect the precious oils from light, thus maintaining the oil’s effectiveness.

Every Man Jack Age Defying Eye Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Every Man Jack and Drugstore.com.
Scent: no noticeable fragrance.
I Like: how the product effectively reduces puffiness around the eyes.  Convenient packaging with a pump dispenser.
Not a fan of: how long it can take to notice lessening dark circles.

As I get older, I’m noticing more fine lines and puffiness around my eyes.  Thankfully, Every Man Jack recently released their Age Defying Eye Cream for those of us battling tired-looking eyes – not all of us can successfully pull off the puffy-eyed, constantly stoned look like Johnny Depp and still look like a million bucks.  At just under ten dollars, Every Man Jack’s Age Defying Eye Cream is a reasonably priced, effective moisturizer that works well at reducing the appearance of fine lines and puffiness.  The area around my eyes felt firmer and refreshed immediately after applying the product.  The cream is light, non-greasy, and absorbs easily into the skin.  I haven’t noticed a big decrease in dark circles, but I expect that to change with regular use.

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender ingredients list review Caulfield's Counter men's grooming male skincare

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at eShave and Amazon.
Scent: natural lavender.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively soothes and moisturizes skin.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Many of us underestimate the importance of moisturizing immediately after shaving.  In addition to getting rid of hair, shaving removes a fine layer of skin (troubling thought, right?).  If you don’t apply an alcohol-free aftershave balm or moisturizer, your skin suffers – first with redness and irritation, and ultimately with premature aging.  eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother helps to keep skin soothed and nourished throughout the day.  It’s a relatively light lotion with a relaxing lavender scent.  The lotion absorbs easily into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy shine.  At $27 for a six ounce bottle, eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother is a healthy but worthwhile investment for those looking to maintain their youthful, good looks.
