You got caught stealing lotion from the woman in your life and she pointed out, to your shame, what you already knew: Her lotions are expensive. Women get paid less than men. Men’s lotions are cheaper. It’s already unfair. Why would you steal from her? Why not just buy your own?
The year is 2019. You are emancipated from the shackles of manly expectation. Enough to buy lotion anyway. But you have no idea what to get.
We got you. Here are he lotions other men use. We know this because they admit it freely on Amazon. See? No stigma. You can do this!
Could 1,100 guys be wrong about this? Because they are raving about this men’s daily moisturizer.
This lotion is super light, like a refreshing drink for dry skin. And the scent? Nothing girly about it. In fact, it’s almost invisible.
The trick, with all facial moisturizers, is not to use too much. And to use it every day. You can’t slather it on once a month and hope for a cure — or for prevention. Get into the habit and you’ll prevent all sorts of awful results and you’re skin will feel great.
Not ready for the high price of that Brickell Face Moisturizer? Sure. Neutrogena is a go-to drugstore brand moisturizer that will get the job done. This one is an “Age Fighter” because it has a broad-spectrum sunscreen in it. Wearing sunscreen every day is the first step toward protecting your skin from damage — and cancer.
This gets pretty high marks from the guys on Amazon. Worth a try, right?
If you hate the dry, tight feeling of your skin after a shower but you are worried that applying lotion will cause a breakout, try an oil-free lotion. (And cut back on the fast food.) IT adds moisture without layering oil onto your skin.
This one is particularly light and has no odor. So if those breakouts are cause by a reaction to scents, this will be safe from that as well.
L’Oreal Paris Skincare Men Expert Vita Lift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Face Moisturizer with SPF 15 and Pro-Retinol
You looked in the mirror and the guy looking back at you, looked older than he did yesterday. And now — only now? — you are thinking about prevention. It’s time for some big guns. Retinol!
This lotion has both a sunscreen and a bit of the miracle anti-wrinkle stuff called Retinol. It will dial back those wrinkles and prevent you from getting more of them.
Still not sure about this lotion idea? This one is, like, $6. Can you handle six bucks? It’s got a sunscreen in it, too. And is says, “Men” right on the package.
Seriously. You can do this.
