This one goes out to all the ladies out there who have been trying to coerce their other halves into some sort of skincare routine that doesn’t involve shower gel and body lotion, for I have the solution. I’ve done it. It’s taken almost five years, but we’ve got there. My boyfriend, Mark, is now the proud owner of a two-part skincare routine. A routine that he loves so much that he pesters me to refill his stocks when they deplete. Result. The two products in question: Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15 Energizing Treatment for Men and their Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash Gel Cleanser for Men. I asked him his thoughts on them and this is what I got…
“The Facial Fuel moisturiser feels nice on my face and I err like the smell. I don’t really know what to say. I feel the effects of it all day, when I get back from work my face still feels nice, errrrrm. I don’t need to use that much of it either.” That’s where I interject and call B.S, I’ve see him use a golf ball size each morning.
“I think the cleanser feels quite fresh, it’s nice without it being aggressively fresh – you know when things have bloomin’ mint in them (this is where I interject again and explain that’s why shower gel is not to be used on the face). I use it in the shower every morning and my face just feels clean after I’ve used it.”
Who knows? Maybe his skincare stash will come to rival mine and then we’ll have real storage issues in the bathroom. With just two products in his routine at the moment I don’t think I need to worry about that just yet though.
