    Default Best men's moisturiser

    What do you all think the best men's moisturiser is to apply in the areas you put fragrances to extend the longevity of the scent?

    Obviously I'm looking for an un scented moisturiser and one that works well for hands, wrists, face and neck area. Basically an all purpose high quality un scented moisturiser.

    I like Nivea essentially enriched, works well on my skin which tends to be very dry. But I have not tried it to lock in perfume, so I don't know how it would work for the purpose.

    I like Cetaphil as an unscented daily moisturizer.

    I use Aveeno unscented moisturizer to extend longevity.

    Petrolatum -- petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) or mineral oil.

    It's cheap, neutral smelling, and does not contain masking agents, such as some "unscented" products do.

    If you use it judiciously it is not at all greasy.
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I like all the products from Men Science. They're so good my wife starting using them because they're superior to her overpriced Chanel.

    Cetaphil or Olay with SPF 15. Non fragrant and non-comedogenic.

    Kiehl's or Anthony's. Jack Black is crap.

    This. Its the only unscented lotion ive used that actually has no scent after about 5-10 minutes. Ive used cetaphil and it left a slight scent for quite a while, granted it was a few years old.

    I also use Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, it's unscented, and it does the job the few times I have done side by side comparisons between with lotion and without lotion sprays.

    Every Man Jack Signature Mint

    Amazing, and amazingly cheap. It has a faint mint smell that fades quickly so it shouldn't interfere with the frags. I don't know about locking in the fragrance, but it's worth a shot being that it's so inexpensive...here in the U.S. at least, I don't know about England.

    I simply use the in-house budget line Balea of the German cosmetics retailer DM - apart from being dirt cheap, even their scented products are sufficiently neutral-scented not clash with the fragrance worn, while still effective enough to enhance the very same fragrance applied.

    I only moisturise my face and neck, ten to fifteen minutes after shaving, and like The Gentleman's Refinery unscented balm. They have a scented version, which smells of rose geranium and a mote of sandalwood, but it interferes with fragrances and isn't that appealing in its own right. It is very good for extending the longevity of fragrances, but am thinking of trying something that also protects somewhat against the sun.

    As a side note, applying fragrances with bergamot or oak moss to the neck seems to be a bad idea, as I understand that they work as photosensitisers. That is to say, the skin becomes more sensitive to the sun. Hence why bergamot used to be used in suntanning lotions, as opposed to sunscreens. Sad to say, I have become increasingly wary of applying scents with these things in them to my neck. A great pity, as that is the most enjoyable way to enjoy classic eaux des colognes on hot days. Those with beards seem rather sensible in this respect.

    Just moisturise at night before you go to bed so you don't have to worry about scents etc the next day. I find Nivea to work well.

    I went with an all natural organic moisturiser in the end, no nasty chemicals and un scented so that should work nicely it's not a well known name but is just what I was after

    I like both and I've ended up using a mix of the products of the two different companies. You need above all to research and them look into the ingredients of each product line. The Anthony Logistics moisturizer has nut oils in it while the Black moisturizers are oil free. While the nut oils provide various goodies they're also oil and any oil can block your pores.

    I'm using the following regimen: (1) Anthony Logistics glycoiic wash (this product provides a daily "chemical" exfoliation of the skin; i prefer a chemical exfoliation over the "gritty" scrubs - anything gritty is going to exfoliate but it is also going to some degree inflict some inflammation onto the skin so I prefer to avoid the gritty scrubs). (2) the Anthony Logistics astringent pads (I have combination skin with an oily forehead area and I find that if I use this it helps prevent pimples). (3) The Black skin serum (this is admittedly a bit oily but it has all kinds of vitamins and antioxidants which is beneficial when you're my age and I hate to admit it because I used to think such claims were ridiculous but I really have noticed that my two horizontal thin age lines across my forehead have all but disappeared - granted they were shallow but I can tell a real difference and I attribute it to the skin serum (4) Black oil free moisturizer with sunscreen. Definitely - whatever moisturizer you choose - make sure it has a sunscreen in it. Dermatologists insist everyone should be using a daily sunscreen moisturizer on their face.

    I know that sounds like a lot to do in the mornings (and a pain) but it takes only a few minutes. If you're not 54 (me) you probably only need to worry about deep cleaning and moisturizing and can exfoliate only once a week or so with the Anthony glycolic wash. Also if you have dry skin the Anthony glycolic wash may dry you out in which case I think I would use the Black moisturizer. Also - I tried the Baxter products - they are good products and they are great about sending you free samples of anything you'd like but I personally think both the Black and Anthony products are superior. Baxter does make a great shave cream product which I like.

    Try one of the following:

    - Geo F Trumpers unscented moisturiser

    - Korres Men's Borage Anti-Shine moisturiser (ideal as an after shave too)

    It depends on your skin type. I'd suggest the humble Simple 'Kind to skin' range: 'Hydrating Light' is you've oily or blemished skin or 'Replenishing Rich' if you're normal or dry skin. For £1.50 odd, you can't really go wrong.

    Another coupe for the marketing men.

    My Grandad has never used any and my Dad hasn't used any.

    Neither of their faces have melted or even burst into flames and they both look 10 years younger than their actual years.

    So do I.

    Okay, this is the best aftershave/lotion I've used by far! It is incredible. And I've seriously tried sooooo many different ones. It lasts a long time so don't get too freaked about the price.

    Oh yeah, it's Proraso.
