You see the rumour is, womens skincare products work noiticably better than any mens skincare products. not to mention a much wider range of products.

I have oily skin, suffer from spots (which btw gets worse this time if year)
and have dark circles around my eyes.

What products are people using? whats your skincare routine?

I just wanna skip all the trial and error. Thought that getting an opinion off of this forum would save a lot of time.

Thanks in advance!!!

Yeah, whoever told you that was probably trying to sell you more expensive products. Besides there's nothing that makes a product "women's" aside from marketing, packaging colors, and fragrance.

my boyfriend uses garnier nutrise products for his skin. i use their hair products so he thought he would try their skin care line - he loves them. says he wont put anything else on his face.

and ya, the only difference between the products for men and women is marketing, packaging, and fragrance. i would ignore any gender differences and not think of it as womens or mens skin care, simply think of it as skin care.

Hey..

The rumor is total nonsense. Women skin care products may have a wider variety to boast of but then nowadays there are many interesting men skin care products in the market as well.

And yeah, apart from the packaging and fragrance differences, men's skin care products cater to the special skin requirements of men. Men have rougher skin than women courtesy hormones and other activities like shaving etc. Therefore, its best to use products designed for your gender. Trust me.. There is more to it than marketing


Good luck,

I had quite a spotty chin and i bought [well, my boyfriends neighbor bought me] Priori perfection face gel and its been really good on my spots, blackheads, closing my pores and leaving my skin nice. At first i found it was good on everything i just listed but my skin was still kind of blotchy in places but the more ive used it its got rid of all that and my skin is really soft. Also ive just started using Botanics moisturizer, cleanser and exfoliator which so far seems to be working better than anything ive tried before and is leaving my skin glowing. I dont have the oil free moisturiser myself i have the pore perfection one but they do have an oil free one which would proabably be better for you because of your oily skin.

:]

Ohh okay, yeahh it was a friend who told me that and they have great skin.
Im gonna check out those recommendations, the botanics and garnier sound like good bets. I had a feeling they would be top of the list.

Thanks people!!!

Skin creams can be unisex, I have been reviewing some creams that are mainly aimed at the female market, and there are only a few that I may draw the line at


Citrus based fragrance is perhaps the one most guys like, it is that clean smell it creates without making you smell like a flower
The musky stuff is a bit old hat, sandal wood can work well though.

Where I would go for the male skin products is on the shaving oils, that or baby oil works well, but the oil cannot be too heavy.

I must admit I don't really think about creams for myself but ever since trying them out, they are really quite enjoyable, skin becomes flexible and the fragrance is appealing, makes me feel fairly clean throughout the day.

I think the main thing is that you want a product that works and doesn't leave you smelling like you are wearing womens skin creams.

Skin is skin, as long as it addresses your needs, such as combination or oily skin types, then you should be ok. As Mike said though, look for products that are light on scents and don't leave you smelling like a girl and you'll be ok.
