Who makes the best hair/face product? kiehls? aveda? malin? etc. - Page 2

post #16 of 28
Sorry gents, but the only moderately high-end stuff I use is my shaving soaps/creams, and even with those I keep it modest unless a killer deal pops up.

It's mostly the fragrance that makes the product "for men". I use odorless stuff.

I've been using Dior Homme Émulsion Hydratante Réparatrice and I must say I'm impressed. It delivers intense moisture, but leaves no shine at all. I have combination skin (shiny at the T zone) and it's the best anti-shine moisturizer I've ever tried (and I've tried all the major brands) but also delivers rich moisture to your skin.

I tried the DH exfoliant cleanser as well, it's pretty good, nothing special. I'd rather use a 2x a week exfoliant and a regular cleanser daily.

Have any of you guys tried the DH Serum (face serum, not the eye serum)? I'm looking for a feedback before buying it.

Flip side of this, a number of my female friends tell me the men's stuff is often repackaged women's product that sells far cheaper than theirs. I like Kiehl's face creams (last forever) and their astringents. I'm actually planning on buying some of their abyssine eye cream, too.

Is there no love in this forum for Neutrogena products? I've been using their stuff contentedly for years, but I must admit that I've never done any cross brand comparisons.

I really like Aesop's products. It's really expensive compared to what I used before (Clean & Clear for face wash, Aveda for moisturizer) but I like it. I try to calculate how much it costs over the lifetime of the bottle and then it doesn't seem so bad.

Keep in mind, a lot with how well a product works depends on what kind of skin you have. Whether it's oily, dry, or combination-skin.

The majority of designer products aren't advertised with that in mind, so what might work great for one guy may not work at all for you. I've used several name brands in the past that had great packaging and style, but either didn't work or made things worse.

I have oily skin and it seems a lot of the designer brands cater more to dry-skinned people. I've been using a brand called Paula's Choice (yeah, not exactly designer stuff!) for the last several years. I use their exfoliate and anti-blemish cream. For ordinary face washing, I use a Neutragena soap bar for oily skin.

bumpin this thread, I just bought a travel kit of Malin and Goetz, has like 6 of their products, since I last posted this thread I have been using:
Cetaphil
Complex 15
Aveda Toner spray
and Bumble & Bumble creme shampoo/conditioner... figured its time to try something new.

Anyone tried any of the Malin products?

Forgive me for my blunt ignorance but has any one of you tried the eucalyptus deodorant that Malin + Goetz has on the market? How is it in terms of smell, durability/effectiveness of protection against armpit odours, clog etc? What are the up - and downsides of this product?

I have to say that Lush's coalface cleanser, lip service lip balm, and soak and float solid shampoo are all really great products. My wife has bought a bunch of their stuff, and I think the only real dud we've seen are the bath jellies. http://www.lushusa.com/shop/

I am pretty much bald and I cut what hair I have left pretty short. I do keep a pretty short beard though. Fancy hair care products really are a thing of the past for me.

I just use the regular drug store shampoo on my hair and beard and then use kiehls moisturizer/sunscreen on my face and exposed head. It seems to work pretty well.

Does anybody use anything different for their beard?
