Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant review face scrub exfoliant male skincare Caulfield's Counter men's grooming

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Ingredients List review male skincare men's grooming Caulfield's Counter

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-$50 for 2.6 oz) – Available at Dermalogica, Drugstore.com, and Ulta.
Scent: faint citrus-like fragrance.
I Like: the mild grittiness.  Makes it an ideal face scrub for sensitive skin.  Also contains salicylic acid, which helps keep acne and ingrown hairs at bay.
Not a fan of: the paraben ingredients.

Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Talc, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Colloidal Oatmeal, Oryza Sativa Bran (Rice), Oryza Sativa Starch (Rice), PCA, Allyl Methacrylates Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Limonene, Methylparaben, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Allantoin (Comfrey Root), Salicylic Acid, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil (Grapefruit), Papain, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract (Licorice), Cyclodextrin, Melaleuca Altemifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil (Tea Tree)

Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant may be the best face scrub for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.  This product differs from traditional exfoliants as it comes in powder form.  All you need to do is add water to activate the scrub.  It’s very gentle with a slightly noticeable grittiness.  While this exfoliant is marketed for daily use, I tend to use it about two to three times a week to help keep pores clear.  Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant comes with a hefty price tag, but a full-size 2.6 ounce bottle should last you at least six months.

Quality at a reasonable price: The Real Shaving Company Sensitive Shaving Gel

The Real Shaving Company Shave Gel ingredients list review sensitive skin Caulfield's Counter metrosexual men's grooming male skincare

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.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Ingredients review dry sensitive skin male skincare mens grooming

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Walmart, Target, and Walgreens.
Scent: Fragrance free
I Like: how rich and easily spreadable the cream is.  Moisturizes body and face.  Effectively treats dry, irritated skin.  A good value.
Not a fan of: the petroleum-based ingredients.

Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream is a fantastic gateway moisturizer for those who are not too concerned about how natural their skin care products are.  This widely-available unscented cream effectively moisturizes dry, sensitive skin on the body as well as the face.  Its consistency is extremely thick – similar to that of Crisco, but nowhere near as greasy.  What impresses me most about the cream is how quickly it alleviates dryness.  The product leaves behind a slightly greasy film, but it becomes hardly noticeable ten minutes after application.  If you’re still using your girlfriend’s synthetic berry-scented lotion, you should consider moving on to a fragrance-free alternative such as Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream.  It does a better job at moisturizing without making you smell like an air freshener.

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.

Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees and Drugstore.com.
Scent: Woodsy & citrusy blend of bergamot, lemon, sweet orange, patchouli, and fir.
I like: that the product is all natural. The scent is masculine without being overpowering.  It cleans without leaving your skin feeling dry.
Not a fan of: nothing.  Just don’t expect a lot of lather.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash is a wonderful smelling all-natural shower gel that doesn’t over-dry your skin.  The scent is a fresh and woodsy blend of bergamot, lemon, sweet orange, patchouli, and fir.  Because the body wash is all-natural, it doesn’t produce a lot of suds – which makes the product ideal for those with dry or sensitive skin.  To maximize lathering, I suggest using a shower sponge.   Otherwise, you’ll end up using a lot of product in a short amount of time.  At under ten dollars, this Burt’s Bees body wash is definitely worth trying.

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Target, Every Man Jack, Drugstore.com, and Walgreens.com.
Scent: Fragrance free.
I Liked: the thick consistency, which made for a smooth, comfortable shave.  The unscented cream is especially ideal for those with sensitive skin.  Paraben-free, SLS-free, and not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: nothing.  However, please note that this is a low-foaming shave cream – it does not lather up well with a shave brush.

Every Man Jack’s Fragrance Free Shave Cream is an effective, no frills shaving product with a conscience.  It’s fragrance free and doesn’t contain a lot of the unnecessary synthetic ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin.  The cream’s thick texture allows for a close, comfortable shave.  This shave cream is low-lathering, which is a good thing.  Chances are that if you’re using a cream that lathers up well, it’s probably drying up your skin.  At under ten dollars, Every Man Jack Fragrance Free is one of the best shave cream values available.
