I admit it, I'm a skin care freak, at least for a man I am Blush

During winter I use a mild Clinique facial soap to wash my face with in the shower, then use a Lancome Scrub cream (very very little - half a pea in size).

After shaving I use a Clinique mild Scruffing Lotion on a piece of cotton or an alum bloq all over my face.

Then it's time for the after shave balm or splash or sometimes both in combination.

Finally I add a Clinique M-Lotion Gel followed by Lancome Eye Gel and 4 drops of Cliniques Laser RepairWear Focus gel.

If I have really dry skin I will add a pea size of my GF's Helena Rubinstein day cream with sun protection built in.

I only use very small amount of cream, so my face still feels nice and smooth after this skin care routine.

What do you guys use Biggrin

Don't know if I would classify myself as a skin care freak, but I do like to take care of my face. I used to use the Clinique mens line, but a couple years ago I got lazy and stopped buying it. I've been using my wife stuff layely, which is Bare Essentials, a mineral based line. I use the facial cleanser, moisturizer, etc. and it works well.

I've tried everything.

A good,gentle, non-oil based, non-comedogenic face wash followed by USB beats everything hands down.
Cleansed and moisturized. Nothing else needed. Anti-aging benefits, vitamins,protection, etc. built right in. Smile

+3 now I think. I use a bit of a different routine as my face is pretty oily but dehydrated. My aftershave is cold water rinse then Krampert's Finest. KFBR gives me the moisturizing I need without any tackiness or greasiness. At night before bed I use the Unrefined Shea Butter. I've only been using USB for a little over a week & I can already say my face & neck have never looked nor felt better.

I'd advise getting away from as many chemicals as possible. Skin is the largest organ we have so the more you put on it daily the more you are absorbing into your system. I don't think Clinique is a company focused on natural products but that's only a guess. I hope their products are very natural.

+4. Can't beat unrefined Shea. And it's not even close.

I'd recommend drying your face with a clean paper towel, ridding debris with a cotton ball & the Thayers of your choice, and finish off with a Penhaligon's After Shave Balm.

Add up the price of all the goops around your bathroom, ask yourself "would it be nice to have ONE TUBE of goop to use on my face?". One that works better than all the others combined and isn't made with ingredients that cause the very problems they claim to cure,,... and happens to smell better than just about anything you have ever experienced?

I use the Rodan + Fields brand for my skin care needs. I use their microdermabrasion paste to exfoliate (I find it also helps give me a closer shave) and then follow up with their Soothe regimen to help calm, soothe and protect my skin. All are prescription based products created by two dermatologists with a money-back guarantee; I figured it couldn't hurt to try them. Very pleased with my results. I order here http://mrockford.myrandf.com

For the last month, I have had a rash on the checks due to overshaving and dry air from heating. I found CeraVe moisturizing cream and Aveeno Aftershave lotion to help a lot. At first I had to add a little cortisone cream.

It's too bad, because I have a lot of Myrsol, Proraso, Musgo Real and other after shave splashes. I just splash them on my chest and back now.

Oh, as someone said, cold water all the way for me.

OK, I'm in. I've been a skin care freak for 20 years, after a girlfriend of mine worked for cl unique and hooked me on it. Since then I've tried a variety of lines including Kiehls, but by far the best I've used is Nancy Boy.

After a shave I use witch hazel, alum block or both, then a nice after shave balm like the gentleman's refinery or Simpsons. After that I use the Nancy boy replenishing cream. At night I use the Nancy boy balancing facial toner on a face pad, and then the Nancy boy night cream. I've been using this combo for years and its absolutely fantastic. Im frequently told i look very young for my age.

And a final plug, their soap is fantastic. Great scent, very mild and lasts forever.

I like the USB performance, but my wife just can't stand the scent... To her it smells like fat, and I guess I can relate.
I'm going to have to buy some USB with a scent, just have to decide which one... Maybe grapefruit or vanilla.

You may want to try using a couple of drops of your favorite AS with the USB to add the scent of your choice.

That is a good idea, providing it does not end up giving any kind of burn. I'm already thinking of USB with the AdP scent... Biggrin

Warm water. Period.

Only soap/product that touches it is from shaving.

Nothing on the hair either. Short hair, scalp brush, warm water. Hair is clean and shiny.

I have never heard of anything like that. I am sure it was nothing that the dentist did.
