Thread: Best men's moisturiser
Body- Aveeno unscented
Face- Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream

I use Olay Sensitive Skin with SPF 15. Works well with acne prone people.
LUSH - Charity Pot
I like Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion as it hydrates the skin for many hours as the alcohol in a lot of fragraces tends to dry my skin out.

I have whiteheads and a black or two on my nose. I've start using the Jack Black liquid product that has a 2% salicylic acid content on my nose and only my nose. The whiteheads and blackhead clear up entirely when I use this product twice a day and the pore become noticeable smaller. By day's end however the pores are larger once again and the sebum in those pores is beginning to backup again but after I use the Jack Black product before bed, the whiteheads are gone and the pores are tight. My question is this: should I be using a moisturizer on my nose (I'm not). I have to say that given the oily nature of my skin there, it seems as though that area sort of moisturizes itself, producing more oil during the course of the day. I'm afraid if I start using a moisturizer on that area again its bound to clog the pores and eliminate the benefits of using the 2% saliclyic acid solution. What are your thoughts?

I use Cetaphil as well. The scent is faint and dissipates immediately. I have really dry skin which I'm trying to repair, so it is absorbing easily. I'm new to the fragrance scene so I don't know if it is improving my longevity but I would say my longevity is poor at the moment. Hoping to increase it with moisturizers/tons of water.
Yes, the Jack Black Skin Serum. I've modified my regimen a bit. I eliminated the astringent pads, and at night I now use the Jack Black moisturizer that has an 8% glycolic acid component in it. I emailed them on the link of their website to get the pH of this produce because some products having glycolic acid simply don't work because the pH is too high. The pH in the Jack Black glycolic acid product is 3.0 which is about perfect (I think its called line eraser or something like that - its more like a lotion than a cream). Also to face my face in the morning I use the Jack Black cleanser (its only one but it has no exfoliating agents in it like the Anthony Logistics stuff followed by the Black moisturizer/serum mixture (I mix on squirt of the serum with about 3 squirts of the moisturizer. At night, I use the Anthony Logistics gylycolic wash followed by the Black line eraser or whatever its called. Again dropped the astringent pads because I thought they were too drying, and they were expensive. The serum I would be as an extra kind of extravagance. I think the Black moisturized is probably all you need. When you get to be 55 you might do the serum!!! (my age). Good luck
I'm relatively young (23) and have quite oily skin so I need to be careful with what products I use, so I've been picking up and throwing out different ones for years. The ones that work really well for me are:
Face: Clinique's clarifying lotion followed by Clinique's M-Gel or Jack Black's serum as pwhinson does. I can't really split the difference.
Body: Skin Doctors Supermoist is amazing, it's scent-free and lives up to the '24h hydration'. Really.
I used Cetaphil and Eucerin for my face in the past and now I prefer CeraVe. I've used many facial moisturizers over the years and I haven't found a better one than this.
I'd go with Lush because pretty much everything they make is exceptional. Personally though I just get the big bottle of unscented moisterizer at Trader Joe's and it does the job just fine.
Normally I use a vitamin C serum, followed by CeraVe, and then a good matte broad spectrum sunscreen. I recently tried Na-PCA and it's fantastic. A great moisturizer that leaves absolutely no residue behind...and it's very inexpensive!

How are the Jack Black products anyways? I have very sensitive skin so shaving often irritates it easily. The current moisturizer I use, while it works great, tends to make my face a bit greasy after a while. I was considering buying the Jack Black trial kit or whatever it is. You know, the kit they have that have smaller bottles of all the products.
edit: sorry didn't realize this was an older thread! lol
Post pictures guys.
My favorites are: Menscience oil free, Baxter of California Oil Free, L'Occitane Youth Concentrate, and Clinique Moisture Surge.
I am very sensitive to a lot of chemicals and additives used in moisturisers and so use products made by Weleda and Salcura. They have been fantastic.
I don't usually use moisturizer, because I live in a very hot and humid weather. When I do, I use nivea.
When I feel that my skin is loosing it's glow, I apply a powerful cream of tretinoin (the acid of Vitamin A) 0.1%, that makes my skin peel and reveals a new and much more beautiful skin underneath.
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
