Shakespeare must be turning in his grave these days. The famous Hamlet line “vanity (frailty) thy name is woman” no longer holds true. The modern man is no longer afraid to take pride in his looks. Gone are the blemished skin, cracked lips and unwanted body hair. He wants to look and smell his best like his female counterpart. To prove my point, you only need to look at the business statistics; male beauty products have become one of the fastest growing segment of the cosmetic industry.
For your benefit, we have listed down the top 10 male beauty products, and the reason why they are the tops.
A face mask is an essential beauty product for removing dirt and grime on your face.
So why Montagne Jeunesse?
Well, for one, this mask is self-warming and is loaded with ginger and cinnamon that open the pores of your skin to get rid of dirt and grime. The experience will leave you with a tighter skin and smooth complexion that feels light and fresh. The ginger in the mask has antioxidant properties that nourishes and refreshes the skin.
A shaving cream is a must, but why Dirty Shaving Cream from Lush?
This shaving cream contains oat milk and shea butter that protect your skin while you shave to give you an irresistible smooth skin. These two ingredients soften the facial hair to make it easy for the shaving blade to cut them. It also contains oils that serve as a lubricating wall that prevents the blade from injuring the skin’s surface. Plus, it has a lavender and sandalwood scent that makes you imagine a forbidden lark in the woodlands.
A facial scrub exfoliates the skin. It gets rid of old, dry and dead skin to allow a new, fresher skin to emerge, making it softer, more youthful and glowing. .
Why this Face Scrub for men from Dove?
Dove face scrub for men gets rid of oil and dirt gently and does not strip the skin and leave it dry. It washes off quickly leaving a soft and smooth skin.
Men too are susceptible to dry and chapped lips which is not only unsightly but painful too since the skin on the lips is thinner than those in other parts of the body. It does not have a top protective layer making it vulnerable to dryness.
Vaseline Lip therapy instantaneously soothes and softens the skin of the lips, helping repair the skin of the lips and not just coat it. It also protects the lip barrier from the effects of exposure and the weather.
Body wash is a better alternative to bath soap since bath soaps usually contain alkaline and have a tendency to dry the skin.
The Re-Charge Black Pepper Body Wash from Molton Brown not only cleanse the body like soap does, it also recharges and revitalizes both mind and body with its warm and spicy scent. A shower with this body wash is the perfect start of a new day.
Wearing fragrance is not for women only. Men have worn fragrance from as far back as one can remember.
1 Million Paco Rabanne for men is the kind of fragrance that makes men feel like a million. Its spicy scent comes from a blend of sparkling grapefruit, rose, mint, red orange, cinnamon, amber, patchouli, blond wood, blond leather and spices.
Both men and women use hair styling products to add volume and shine to hair and also to keep hair in place.
The American Crew Boost Powder is a professional hair styling product for men that maximizes lift, enhances volume and gives hair a soft matte finish. This anti-gravity styling product also softens the hair and maintains its natural moisture as well as revitalizes and repair hair.
Applying a moisturizer increases the moisture level of the skin, prevents it from becoming dry and, if it includes a sunscreen, protects the skin from sun damage.
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15 is a moisturizer and sunscreen for men that re-energizes and brings back to life tired and dull skin. It also provides antioxidant protection with ingredients like Vitamin C and E and chestnut and caffeine extracts.
A sun-kissed skin is as desirable to women as it is to men. When you don't have the time to go to the beach to achieve a tan, the next best thing is a self tan with a tanning lotion for a healthy bronze look.
This bronzing mousse from St Tropez has an all-natural tanning agent that combines with the dead skin cells’ amino acid to create a darker skin hue. It has a fast drying and longer-wear capabilities as well as a fresh scent.
In lieu of facial soap, women who care for their skin use a facial cleanser or facial wash to prevent the skin from drying. Men too need a facial wash for exactly the same reason.
The Fantastic Face Wash from Ursa Major not only deep cleanses the skin for a clearer, cleaner and healthier skin, it also smoothens, soothes and hydrates the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. It has a manly scent coming from essential oils such as spearmint, cedar, lavender and rosemary among other.
