Need some advice on toiletries

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Obviously there are many personal care products on on the market. I need to know where to start. I've used Neutrogena and Edge shave gels, Neutrogena face lotion, Neutrogena face scrub, Mitchum gel antipersperant/deodorant(which I hear has a tendancy to cause stains), Pantene Pro V for dry hair... I have somethat sensitive skin. What shaving gel/prep are you generally happy with? What's a good after-shower facial moisturizer? I've been generally happy with Neutrogena but haven't tried anything else and am open to trying something else as my bottle of Neutrogena is almost empty. What's good for washing one's face in the evening? I've been using Neutrogena, but when the bottle finishes I would be open to trying something else. What's a good non-staining deodorant? Something without that aluminum stuff would be good. What's a good shampoo? I've used Pantene Pro V for dry hair for years, but would be open to trying something else. And what's a good toothpaste?

I use the Clinique men's line: liquid face cleanser, M shave gel, scruffing lotion, M gel lotion, Happy body wash.  I use OxyFresh toothpaste and mouthwash.  I used to use Mitchum roll on deodorant/antiperspirant,, but it caused too many stains.  Now I use Weleda deodorant. edit: Corrected spelling of Clinique.

Thanks, HopkinsStudent. I haven't even heard of the brands you mentioned. I guess that gives me something to start with. Any more suggestions?

That was supposed to be Clinique, not Cinique.

Yeah, it's expensive, but it's really the only thing I've found that works on the bad halitosis I occassionally get. As far as the Weleda deodorant, I imagine you can get it at Whole Foods, but I ordered it online.

if you want a good overall premium brand with no premium prices, try baxter of california's line of products for shaving, you likely need a shave product for senstive skin and there are dozens on the market - i use baxter of california's shave product which has some anti-inflammation component to it to help soothe razor burn or sensitive skin issues from shaving for a facial moisturizer, i've had good results for my oily and sensitive skin from the following: korres borage anti-shine moisturizer kiehl's abyssine facial moisturizer baxter of california oil free moisturizer for washing your face in the evening, you may want to try the following: baxter of california facial wash korres sage fluid gel cleanser menscience facial cleanser anthony logistics glycolic facial wash good non-staining deodorant, you can try: anthony logistics sharps happy me pit guard good shampoo, depends on your hair type: korres makes a nice ph neutral aloe and soapwort shampoo for everyday use and baxter of california makes a nice daily protein shampoo - you may need a good conditioner for your dry hair as well i also second that you visit the forums at menessentials.com for additional advice
