Products featured in this beauty story:
Axiom for Men PH Balanced Hair Removal Cream ($19.50)
This hair removal cream is much more appealing than the ladies' versions that have been touting the drugstores for years. Calcium thioglycolate is an organic compound that breaks the bonds in the cortex of hair. Apply the hair removal cream to clean, dry skin, allow the cream to sit for 9 minutes, then rinse away. Do not use soap to wash away the removal cream; instead, use a wash cloth to gently wipe/work away the cream from the hair in the shower.
Axiom For Men Face & Body Shave Cream ($14.50)
This shave cream is full of moisturizing ingredients, which make it much easier for a razor to glide across and give you the closest smooth shave. While skin is still warm and wet from the shower, apply the lather to areas where hair is to be removed and shave with a razor. Notice the lack of nicks and cuts.
Dior Homme Sport Deodorant ($22.00)
With citron, cedarwood accords, and ginger accords, this scent leaves a man feeling energized. Apply to clean underarms freshly out of the shower.
Tom Ford Oil-Free Daily Moisturizer ($105.00)
This product is both luxurious and lightweight, giving men the best of both worlds. Loaded with skin calming ingredients for after shave, it helps to minimize redness and skin irritation, as well as keep skin looking matte. Apply all over face after cleansing.
Murad Renewing Eye Cream ($75.00) Full of peptides, this eye cream is a triple threat by firming, brightening, and hydrating the delicate skin around your eyes. After cleansing skin, take a small amount on your ring fingers and gently pat the cream onto the undereye skin area, as well as the browbone.
Recipe For Men Facial Moisturizer+ ($39.00)
Great for men when the winter starts to hit or for men with dryer skin, this moisturizer is slightly heavier and continues to keep working for up to 12 hours. Apply to skin after cleansing or after shaving.
Axiom For Men Pearlized Cleansing Gel ($19.50)
This cleanser is ideally used after shaving/hair removal. It contains aloe to moisturize, chamomile to soothe and repair, and triclosan to keep bacteria at bay. After shaving, while skin is still damp, work the cleansing gel into a lather and massage into face while being careful to avoid the eyes. After about 30 seconds, rinse skin and splash with cold water to close the pores.
Zirh Reverse-Anti Aging Serum ($45.00)
One of the only instant gratification anti-aging MEN'S skin care products out there, this serum has a silicone base that creates a soft focus for fine lines and works as an instant filter for your face. Apply to a clean face and neck in the morning.
Nickel Super Pecs – Pectoral Pumping Cream ($54.00/€39.00)
A quick lift in a bottle, this pumping cream gives an immediate lift and firm to pecs. For best results, apply daily to pecs with gentle massaging motions until completely absorbed into skin.
Josh Rosebrook Deep Hydrating Serum ($70.00)
Unlike most skin care products out there, this organic serum has live, active extracts that immediately go to work on repairing skin. Apply both in the morning and at night to clean skin (face and neck) in circular motions, massaging the serum into the skin.
Hanz De Fuko Claymation – High Hold Matte Finish ($18.50)
This hybrid hair product gives you the hold and slight shine that you’re looking for from a wax product, with the workability and extra hold that you get from stronger clay products. Apply nickel- to quarter-sized amounts to dry hair to piece and mold your hair to the desired shape, or apply to damp hair for well groomed locks with a natural sheen.
Axiom For Men Daily Restorative Moisturizer ($19.50)
This moisturizer is a bit of an all-in-one. Essentially a face and body moisturizer, this one is great for the man on the go. Apply to face and body freshly out of the shower, and you’re good to go.
