Do you use a different moisturizer before bed than you do in the morning?

    Right now I'm using the Jack Black moisturizer in the morning and at night.

    With there being night creams out there, are they that much different than a morning moisturizer? What do you use?

    I'm uncircumcised, so I don't need to use lotion in the morning or the night. And I prefer to bang my wife instead of jacking off, anyway.

    I usually jerk off in the shower with conditioner. Suave apple scented is very nice.

    In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

    Wait let me get this straight:

    You'll spend $500 on a pair of shoes, $1000 on a winter jacket, and $2000+ on a suit, along with various other items that cost over $100, but there's something wrong with using a $50 creme that will last 2-3 months and protects your face?

    So it's more important to pose as if you're rich to impress others than to take care of your face and not age faster than you should?

    According to Dr Hauschka's advice it might be a better idea not to use a moisturizer at night to let your skin breathe and balance itself while sleeping.
    I usually follow this advice. If you absolutely want to use a night treatment, maybe a good choice would be a serum like the Ren Omega 3 that I have tried and is excellent or the Zirh correct which I have also tried but is a bit more sticky and annoys me when I put my cheek on the pillow. Still very good as an aftershave.

    I pretty much feel like the OP owned everyone who posted mocking his thread. I also feel like everyone who posted making fun of the OP not only uses a different moisturizer in the morning and at night, but also uses a third moisturizer after lunch every day.

    I do

    For day, it's usually whatever is the most lightweight, or sunscreen. I dont like the feeling of heavy moisturizers, so I use them at night when I sleep. For night time, nothing is better than pure apricot or jojoba oil. Sometimes I use Korres yogurt cooling gel. It's not as moisturizing, but the cool feeling is very relaxing.

    I don't at the moment use moisturiser but am considering it as im in my mid 20s - might delay the aging process a bit.

    Fuck me, does every thread have to be met with a sarcasm and derision. This place run by teenagers or something?

    I have dry hands....like crackly dry. I use some Vaseline aloe stuff on them. Then I rub my face with my hands. Then I'm moisturised. This is called being a boy.

    Sunscreen that blocks UVA rays is the best thing for delaying aging. 80% of wrinkles are caused by sun damage.

    The sarcasm and derision comes not from using a moisturizer, but rather asking other men about using a different moisturizer before bed. One moisturizer should be sufficient for your purposes, unless you go with a ylang-scented lotion in the morning, and a lavender-scented cream in the evening, with some unscented body butter hidden in your sock drawer so you don't get found out while rubbing one out. But the broader issue is that men shouldn't be too pretty or look like they worked at their grooming. you nance.
