We don’t blink at the idea of men taking care of their skin anymore. And with brands like Kiehls making sure there’s plenty of choice when it comes to products aimed squarely at the masculine side of the market, there is just no excuse for unkempt skin and hair.
Facial Fuel is the name of Kiehl’s facial range for men, with the macho associations coming in the packaging (blue and straight forward) and the vehicular reference in the title.
Kiehl’s is a brand that has fantastic credentials, established over 150 years ago as a New York East Village apothecary. Their products feature a mix of technology and natural products, with minimal packaging that reflects the brand’s historical roots. The Facial Fuel range for men is well established, with its shaving and personal grooming products finding fans amongst men keen to keep their skin in perfect condition. We tried the Exfoliating Scrub, the Energising Face Wash and the Energising Moisture Treatment and we’re hooked, with the products making a great combination for everyday use.
The Energising Face Wash smells great and gives you the feel of a real deep clean without drying out the skin. You don’t need to use a lot so this makes a great cleansing wash for busy mornings.
The Energising Scrub has key ingredients of Apricot Kernel Oil – with its high vitamin E content – and Caffeine to reinvigorate tired skin. It really feels like its getting somewhere without any of the scratchiness found in lesser brands.
The Moisture Treatment is light and fresh, with a caffeine and vitamin enriched non-oily formula. It’s non greasy formula also includes menthol and you can feel the refreshing hit when you apply.
So if you’re looking to update your own facial care regime, or for gifts for Father’s Day coming up in June or treats for birthdays, we think the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel range is a great bet and good value in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
