C.O. Bigelow Barber Hair & Body Wash Elixir Red No. 1608 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★

Price: $ ($10) – Available at C.O. Bigelow.
Scent: Potent blend of spice, red currant, fig, and sandalwood.
I Like: the versatility of the product – made for hair and body.  
Not a fan of: the strong fragrance, sulfate ingredients, and paraben preservatives.

The C.O. Bigelow Barber Elixir Red No. 1608 Hair & Body Wash is ideal for use post-workout or pre-dinner date.  Its strong scent ensures any trace of body odor is, at the very least, masked.  Trust me, you won’t need to apply cologne after using this cleanser.  Don’t use this product on your face – the potent fragrance and sulfate ingredients could potentially over-dry the skin and cause breakouts.  Those who enjoy strongly scented masculine products may want to give this hair and body wash a try.

Zirh Body Bar Alpha Hydroxy Acid AHA Review Caulfields Counter male skincare mens grooming back acne

Zirh Body Bar - Smells fresh and helps clear body acne.

Zirh Body Bar Ingredients List Alpha Hydroxy Acid AHA Review Caulfields Counter male skincare mens grooming back acne

Zirh Body Bar Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Amazon.
Scent: Fresh, cool, slightly citrusy.
I Like: how the alpha hydroxy acids help to keep body acne and breakouts at bay.  The refreshing fragrance.  This bar lasts longer than the usual drugstore-bought soaps – it doesn’t soften up in the shower.
I don’t like: how the soap can dry out the skin if used too often. 

Zirh’s Body Bar is ideal for anyone who is battling acne of the back, chest, arms, neck, or buttocks.  That’s right – our bottoms are prone to occasional acne breakouts and ingrown hairs.  The soap’s alpha hydroxy acid content helps to clear the skin.  The bar smells fresh – citrusy with a hint of menthol.   I recommend using this soap as a compliment to your everyday soap or body wash.  If you use the Zirh Body Bar all the time, you run the risk of drying out your skin – something that could actually cause more breakouts.  At $15, this soap is on the pricey side.  However,
it holds up very well in the shower.  You don’t have to worry about the bar prematurely disintegrating.  If you’re regularly experiencing body breakouts, give the Zirh Body Bar a try.  Don’t forget to moisturize after every shower.  It will help keep your body from overproducing oils, which could lead to acne.  Please note: Use this bar soap on areas other than the face. Using the Zirh Body Bar on your face may result in dryness and irritation.

Update (9/21/11): I just found out that Procter & Gamble is killing off the Zirh brand.  More info can be found here and here.  I suggest stocking up now if you like their products.

Kiehls Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap Review Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skincare mens grooming exfoliate

Kiehl's Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap with Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Refreshing citrus.
I Liked: the scent, its effectiveness at exfoliating, and how long the bar lasted.
I didn’t like: nothing.  However, those with body acne or other skin conditions may want to consider a less-abrasive exfoliating soap or cleanser.

I’m normally not a fan of bar soaps, as most of them typically contain harsh synthetic ingredients that over-dry and irritate the skin.  Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap is an exception.  It has an invigorating citrus scent that is masculine, but not overpowering.  The combination of bran, oatmeal, and pumice effectively sloughs away dull, flaky skin.  Because the soap is quite abrasive, I do not recommend using it on the face or on any area of the body with acne.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well the bar held up in the shower.  It didn’t get soft like the majority of the soaps I’ve used.  Spoil yourself by giving this refreshing, exfoliating bar soap a try.

Want a shot at winning this great Kiehl’s product?

To find out how to qualify, please visit the Contests section.  One lucky winner will be randomly selected.  The deadline to qualify for this contest is Sunday, July 10th at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time.  Good luck!
