This Valentine’s Day, give the gift of grooming to the man in your life to keep him smooth and supple and ready for kissing. With all the fabulous men’s products on the market these days, you might have to guide him to take care of his skin, but trust me once he gets started, he won’t stop. All you need to do is compliment him like crazy, and he’ll keep using them. Men love compliments about their looks just as much as women do so telling him his skin looks young and fresh will encourage him to keep going.
I field-tested some products using my dad, brother and a few friends’ husbands and boyfriends as guinea pigs, and here is the final outcome: Kiehl’s products topped the list based on packaging alone. And with tried and true amazing results, the boys were very happy. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No Shine Lip Balm was favored because most men didn’t want shiny lips that they get with most lip balms. This balm nourished and protected but stayed matte. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash gave the guys a clean and fresh feeling face without leaving a slimy residue.
Even men worry about aging, so a couple of the older guys were digging the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream to keep their skin soft and line-free. Eye cream is a product that more and more men are starting to pay attention to as they age and the top two were SkinCeuticals AOX Eye Gel, which fights photo damage and combats under-eye fatigue and Menscience Eye Rescue Formula for dark circles and puffiness.
A few times a week a guy needs a good scrub which helps keep their skin smooth and prevents ingrown hairs. Baxter Of California Facial Scrub is the perfect scrub to use once or twice a week to promote cell renewal and revitalize the complexion. So splurge on skincare for your love, and then gush over how handsome he is!
