We’d like to officialy welcome you to the launch of our men’s section here on EQ! We’ve been on the search for quite sometime now to decide on what products we’d like to bring to our audience. Thanks to our guy friends, who constantly have questions on what to use on their skin, the products sort of fell into our lap.
Hopefully, our audience that consists of men start to feel more included and our girls out there looking for the perfect gift will always consult one of our articles.
The first product we chose to discuss with you has been a favorite for quite sometime now and we’ve had numerous men try it, along with women. Shaving is unisex, although I think men enjoy it; women dread it. This product is all about making the shaving experience somewhat more pleasant. As we know, shaving is known to cause irritation to the skin such as razor bumps and ingrown hair. After shaving the hair follicle, the tip of the hair becomes sharp. Once it grows again, it curls and re-enters the follicle. Depending on one’s skin and surface they choose to shave, the results will vary.
This product is an excellent aftershave. It’s a soothing formula that’ll reduce the appearance of razor bumps and redness. One of its key ingredients is ginger root extract which provides gingerols that are known to have a soothing effect. This product will work on both men and women and can be applied in all shaving areas, even the sensitive ones. It does not have a strong scent; some men do prefer a product that leaves one but this is not the case with the Kiehl’s product. It is not greasy and will not leave your skin looking shiny in all the wrong places; if anything it’ll offer a healthy glow.
After shaving, go ahead and apply a small amount of the formula with a cotton ball or clean fingertips and pat it on the skin. Best results will be achieved with systematic, every day use, especially those who shave on the clock. Add some SPF afterwards, please.
Which is an absolute must product for those who shave on the regular? Enlighten the rest of the audience, we need to know what else is out there. Sound off in the comments below.
- While this aftershave works wonders, it's important to choose a proper razor. Do extensive research before purchasing a razor.
- Change your razor blade frequently.
