Doesn’t the name of this product just sound enticing? I know that as soon as I opened it up, I couldn’t wait to try it. Babor have a range of skincare products specifically for men.
I don’t actually use a lot of face moisturisers that come in a gel form – purely because I find they’re not hydrating enough, but I was still excited to try this. Can we just address the packaging before we get into it? The product looks and feels amazing! It just looks luxurious to me, don’t you agree?
On first impressions, the face moisturiser felt amazing on my skin. It’s got that cooling sensation that seems to be standard in many products targeted toward men, and I’m not mad about it. It didn’t feel greasy on my skin, and actually left my skin looking matte.
Unfortunately, that’s where the fun ends. I had high hopes for this product, and it didn’t live up to them. My skin almost felt too matte. For someone with dry skin, it felt hydrating at first, and then as the day went on, my skin just got drier. Not a good look!
Many skincare products that are targeted specifically toward men, tend to tailor for oily skin as this is the most common skin type amongst us males. Not for me though! My skin is on the drier side and I find that most male products don’t work for me. Unfortunately, that’s the same for this moisturiser from Babor. It might be good in summer when I need less moisture, but definitely not for me in the colder months.
I know this that is a problem that will only effect a small portion of us, since if you have oily skin, this will probably be great for you!
