If there is one theme in our bathroom in the morning, it is moisturizer. My husband is constantly, and I mean constantly, asking me to borrow moisturizer. It’s one of those things that he desperately needs but refuses to purchase for himself. I don’t know if it’s the idea of buying skincare or if he just has sticker shock, but he never, ever buys it.
Needless to say, the job is always left to me.
As a general rule, my favorite things to buy him for the holidays are things that he needs but he won’t buy himself. And this Christmas, it’s a new cell phone and moisturizer. I already have the phone but when it comes to the moisturizer, I’m interested to see what others have experience with.
I ultimately went with this Shiseido Men Moisturizing Emulsion because I love the women’s product line so much. But outside of his frequent use of the Clinique Men’s products and the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel (both of which he really liked), I don’t have much experience with other men’s products. Are there others out there worth adding to his stocking?
Out of those he’s used in the past, the Kiehl’s has been the most effective (even I noticed the difference in his skin) but I have high hopes for the Shiseido, especially after reading the reviews. That said, if anyone has anything worth writing home about, I’d love to add a few more products to the gift so I don’t spend the next 12 months letting him borrow mine…
