Best face cream for men: ThalgoMen Regenerating Cream Review - The Spa Man

Best face cream for men: Thalgo Men Regenerating Cream

THE STORY: Spending a month in the heat of the Australian sun puts any skin cream to the test and for my bi-annual pilgrimage home I decided to trial Thalgo Men Regenerating Cream. I like a lot of things about this moisturiser. The consistency is fairly thick which ensures it applies well and gives the feeling of a good coverage. It’s got a light marine-like scent, but definitely subtle as I’m not a huge fan of scented face creams – this passed that hurdle. I always felt hydrated and protected which is exactly what it promises. Best face cream for men? Thalgo is a bit of an unsung hero in the men’s grooming arena. I visited the head quarters in Southern France in 2014 to check out the production facilities and the research and development is all done in-house. The men’s range is a capsule collection – but has everything you need. I am also a big fan of the shaving gel and the ThalgoMen Intensive Hydrating Cream which is an ultra-fresh, blue non-sticky gel that …

Energizing Cleanser

THE STORY: Cleansing is essential for clean, healthy skin. Most guys give their face the once over with a face wash (at best) the others – usually a shower gel – stripping the natural moisture in an instant. I tend to use a face wash in the shower for speed, but when I remember to cleanse properly, my skin does look cleaner, clearer and it reduces the size of my pores. I’ve recently been converted to cleansing by Sothys and its Energizing Face Cleanser.  It’s a cross between a cream cleanser and light scrub. It doesn’t strip the skin nor does it leave the skin squeaky clean – which is actually a good thing. When it’s left feeling squeaky clean you have usually stripped away the healthy natural oils. With the Energizing Face Cleanser your skin is cleansed and hydrated, leaving the pores cleaner and healthier – job done. THE SCIENCE: It comes in a creamy formula that’s ease to use and based on Rhyolite grains. These exfoliating particles help to gently free the skin …

VitaMan Face Moisturiser

THE STORY: I’ve tried a lot of moisturisers in my life and there are few I return to – except for this, the VitaMan Face Moisturiser. It’s just the right consistency for me, it’s rich and quite thick but glides over the skin with ease and you know it’s instantly forming a protective barrier – which is great if you are a lazy shaver (like me). I wear it in all seasons, it’s not greasy and I love the Aussie natural ingredients – they give it a light, fresh smell of the Aussie outback. THE SCIENCE: With hydrating Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E and A it’s the Aussie bush ingredients that make this so unique. Grass Lily promotes rapid healing of the skin. It hydrates, moisturises and heals skin irritations. Blue Cypress Oil has anti-bacterial properties that is cleansing and helps relieve sore, sunburnt, itchy, dehydrated skin. THE VERDICT: It lasts for months and your face will love it, especially if you suffer from dehydrated, sun-damaged skin. THE DETAILS: 150ml – £41
