Scent: very subtle hint of geranium.
I Like: how the lotion is light and easily absorbed.  Keeps the skin moisturized without that greasy feeling.  Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Murad’s Face Defense SPF 15 lotion for men moisturizes well without leaving my skin feeling greasy, which is relatively rare for a sunscreen.  The lotion absorbs quickly, almost immediately after applying.  Its scent is hardly noticeable – those with a keen sense of smell might detect a hint of geranium.  This lightweight facial sunscreen does not come cheap – a two-ounce tube lasting 1-2 months costs $33.  If you have the disposable income to spend on an effective, non-greasy facial moisturizer with sunscreen, try using Murad Man Face Defense SPF 15.  You just might like it.

Anthony Logistics for Men Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 15 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Anthony Logistics for Men, Sephora, and Nordstrom.
Scent: Subtle citrus.
I Like: the light texture, refreshing scent, and sun protection.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean the sun’s UV rays aren’t as strong.  It’s imperative that we apply a moisturizer with sun protection if we go out during the day.  Anthony Logistics for Men’s Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 15 is a great product for those with normal/combination to oily skin to use in such situations.  Though the product claims to be fragrance free, I detected a slight citrus fragrance – it’s quite nice actually.  It has a light texture.  The lotion does a fine job at moisturizing and providing sun protection without leaving behind a heavy greasy film.  If you have extremely oily skin, however, don’t expect this moisturizer to solve your shiny face issues.

L'Occitane Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at L’OccitaneShopstyle, and Amazon.
Scent: Fresh, floral, and slightly citrusy.
I Like: the light texture, relatively high sun protection, and convenient size.
Not a fan of: the strong floral fragrance.

L’Occitane’s Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 is a great face lotion for guys on the go.  Its compact size and pump dispenser makes it easy to apply anytime, anywhere – it’s especially convenient for travelling.  Despite the lotion’s light texture, a little goes a long way.  The 1.7 fluid ounce tube should last you 2-3 months with typical use.  I am not particularly fond of the strong the floral scent – it could use a little toning down.  If you don’t mind floral fragrances, then L’Occitane’s Verdon for Men Outdoor Moisturizer SPF30 is definitely worth trying.

Do you use an aftershave balm thinking it is the only post-shave product you need to apply before leaving the house?  If so, you may want to reconsider your post-shave skincare routine as many aftershave balms contain alcohol, which can over-dry the skin, and do not possess the sustained moisturizing benefits of face lotions.  While aftershave balms can soothe the skin immediately after shaving, their effect is usually temporary.  Face moisturizers, on the other hand, soothe AND keep the skin properly moisturized throughout the day.  Also, it’s generally easier to find face moisturizers with sun protection.  The next time you’re in the men’s skincare aisle debating whether to buy the aftershave balm or face moisturizer, get both…or just buy the moisturizer if you want to keep it simple.  Just remember to use a lotion with an SPF before going out.

Kiehls Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 Review Caulfields Counter sunscreen sunblock

Kiehls Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50

Kiehls Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 Review Caulfields Counter Sunblock Sunscreen Texture

Kiehls Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 Texture

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, Grooming Lounge, and Bloomingdale’s.
Scent: No noticeable fragrance.
I liked: how easy it was to apply.  This sunscreen won’t drip into the eyes like lotions can.  The compact container and texture makes it convenient to travel with and carry without having to worry about spillage.  The high SPF is ideal for adventure seekers and summer tourists alike.
I didn’t like: the texture at first.  The solid wax-like consistency took some getting used to.  However, once applied on the skin, the product absorbed quickly.

Kiehl’s Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 is an ideal sunscreen for anyone who is exposed to the Sun for an extended period of time.  I had some doubts when I first saw the product – unlike most other sunscreens, the Cross-Terrain Face Protector has a solid texture.  I wrongly assumed the wax-like consistency meant a heavier feeling on my face.  My skin adapted quickly to the product.  It felt no weightier than the face moisturizers I typically use.  Don’t let the small size fool you – this stuff packs a protective punch and will last a while.  Those with sensitive skin will appreciate the lack of a scent.  Though this sunscreen is water and sweat resistant, I recommend reapplication after a swim or workout.  Ingredients squalane and synthetic beeswax help to keep skin moisturized.
