I made a thread about men, who uses female fragrances.
I said I don't use tid but ONLY because I never smelled a female frag I actually liked enough (to wear)
When it comes to skin care products I sure can tell you and prove that I really use what works and often female skin care products are better designed and more advanced than male products.
Yes, a women's skin is thinner and drier than men's but if you know your skin care, you can adapt and find products that work.
I have used Clinique skin care products for men since I was 20 - so 20 years of skin care on my face
I bought a truck load of Lancome for men since I liked their products and still have 8 Reenergy Yeux frag free left, 3 age fight and 3 Reenergy 3D.
But they may smell mosky and manly but I have EDT for that stuff. Skin care products should be (close to) fragrance and scent free IMHO !!
And Lancome For men is full of perfume and parabens.
Mind you - I'm a skin care freak for a man.
Being 40 years old, I need to take care to stay good looking.
My skin care program takes me 20 minutes each day - shaving not included.
I use Clinique or Lancome face scrub 1-2 times a week. Then Clinique extra mild face soap followed by shave, then I use a fragrance free after shave balm from either Proraso or Speick (cheap stuff, but the BEST)
followed one of 3 Mühle After shave balm lotions ( I have Mint, sandalwood and seathorn ) with a little bit of alcohol.
Then I use Clinique Scruffing lotion strength 1 during winter and strength 2 during summer
Then Clinique M Lotion during winter and M Lotion Gel during summer.
Then Clinique Laser repair serum on forehead and around eyes. (this is female only product)
Then Clinique all about eyes ( female priduct) followed by Lancome for men Reenergy Yeux.
Then Clinique Youth Surge SPF 15 day cream or Youth surge night cream - depending on time of day.
If I need extra moisture during the day I use either Lancone for men age fight gel or Truefitt & Hill advanced antiage moisturiser.
This is my skin care ritual
I'm a fanatic and I use female products as long as they are scent less. I don't mind using female products, as they often are made in 2-3 versions depending on your skin type. So I just get the dryest/less fat version, as men has more oily skin than women.
I sometimes use Helena Rubinstein Prodigy Day or Night Tisular creams instead if youth surge when I want some extra luxurious
