Regenerist is a good line of products.

That said, if you want to moisturize at night, you're best bet is using pure oils or liquid waxes IMO.

I frequently put on pure jojoba oil(really a wax though), apricot oil, or emu oil.

Emu oil is the best. It will cause a huge change in how moisturized your skin is in a single night. These days it's refined in such a way that there is no gamy scent, but it is still very heavy. My combo to kick my week off to a good start is to mask Sunday night, then exfoliate, then shave, then use emu oil while I sleep.

So my biotherm homme supply is pretty much out. Any other thoughts. I'm in the young 20s range.

Most important thing of all - sunscreen. This will be the one product that if you use it regularly (and if you wear a hat in the summertime), at age 40 you'll look like you're 30, or if you don't use it you'll look like you're 50. Seriously. The more preventative stuff you can do while you're young will ensure a youthful appearance as you age.

Keeping the moisture in your face is the second most important thing you can do to prevent the signs of aging. Products with Hyaluronic Acid in them are the most water retentive serums currently available.

Also do the Jack LaLanne facial exercises at least a few times a week which will prevent you from getting those telltale signs of aging - jowls.

Thanks for the info. I don't put on sunscreen much at the moment but have been trying to do it more. Do you think the moisturizers with sunscreen are good enough? Or should I use a stronger sunscreen?

As long as it's SPF 30 or more it doesn't matter

Get Shisheido, all of it. Best brand in that price range imo and I've pretty much tried all of them (Clarins, Clinique, Lancome, Biotherm). Shisheido for Men feels natural and soft on the skin. Like you, I have dry skin too and the Moisturizing Emulsion is really excellent. Also you could get the Cleansing Foam and the Hydrating Lotion. Good stuff.

I like Shiseido as well, but one down side is that the moisturizer doesn't seem to have any sun protection. The cleansing foam is like washing your face with puffy clouds.

What do people think of Biotherm?

This as my daily: http://www.amazon.com/Olay-Moisture-Lotion-Light-Combination/dp/B000NURWEO

This for night: http://www.paulaschoice.com/product/two-percent-beta-hydroxy-acid-liquid/bha-aha-exfoliants

If I do not use the daily, I notice breakouts--always moisturize the face in the morning after rinse, prevents dirt build up imo. Only downside to this is I wish it was SPF 30+. The moisturizer acts as a 'defensive mask' throughout the day. The night is more preventive, though I am trying to find something else atm.

Been using the Paula's Choice for a long time now, I want to say 4+ years...the daily lotion 1+ year (switched from older one, Aveeno had higher SPF I think but felt too oily/heavy)

Happy to say I finally found something that works for me after so long. Also, for those thinking about breakouts, diet plays an important role in skincare too...I noticed after I cut out dairy completely, I get no more breakouts/large or small zits etc. I am lactose anyways so it all works out.

Labs series for men
post #29 of 37
big + on the nancy boy ultramarine, works sooooo well. also helps if you mask once a week and shave with a decent cream. truefitt & hill anything is pretty nice, better than labs series, although i used to use lab series, it has something in it that really makes your face feel great, kind of tingly, now i kind of miss that weird feeling. okay later.

Bio Therm and Shisheido products are just average in terms of product performance....no different that going to your local Walgreens or CVS and buying stuff there.

My suggestion is either you buy the stuff at your CVS (ie. Neutrogena products) or you go very high end to get stuff that really works but is more expensive (ie. Twinluxe or Truefitt & Hill products)
