Clinique for men
Hey! I'm sorry if this has been posted about b4 but I couldn't find any posts regarding it.

I take really good care of my skin and I always exfoliate, moisturize, cleanse etc to keep it looking good and recently I saw that clinique has a mens skin care range.

I was wondering if anyone has tried them and if theyre any good/better than other less expensive products?

Lab Series. i really like it. and Clarins Men.

those are cheaper than La Mer, if you don't want to/cannot pony up the cash for LM.

Clinque products tend to be very drying. A good (less expensive) start might be Kiehls. Thier products tend to be more gentle and they have a great line for men, but dont feel you have to be tied to a line that is for men. Try everything.

I'm sorry I hadn't been able to reply t this earlier but I'd been on vacation and had almost forgotten about my post until I saw an email.

I have purchased the Clinique scrub, cleanser and moisturizer and to be honest I really should've listened to Ianastar they really are quite awful.

I think I'm gonna have to try Kiehl's as I've seen another post about them and everyone seems to be obssesed with them.

Thanks everyone x

M Shave Aloe Gel is the only shaving gel I can use, no redness, no itchiness... love it so much. I haven't use that aftershave, it's not available in my country, I've tried the original one wich is great but I don't use products with alcohol anymore, I use the hydrating serum from La Prairie instead of it, love it!

Thanks for the quick response, I've heard nothing but raves about the M Shave Aloe Gel. I haven't read all that much about the Anti-Blemish formula. But since the regular healer has been rated so well, I'm going to look into that more before I make a purchase. I think a visit to the Clinique counter is in order. Anymore products you'd recommend? I'm new to the whole Clinique range.

^ I really liked the M lotion. Light and smelled fresh. I'm going to buy the M protect lotion with SPF in it before I go on vacation this Christmas

I'd really recommend the Age Defense cream, it's very light reduces oil, it's very moisturizing as well. It has really good antioxidants and anti-irritants, glucosamine and vit C to exfoliate and make skin smoother, love it so much. It's like a very light version of Superdefense wich is great too.

By the way the scrub it's one of the best because it' so good before shaving, liftes all the hair so the shave is very comfortable and easy (I hate shaving hehe).

I ended up getting both the M Shave Aloe Gel and Post-Shave Anti-Blemish formula products. They've turned out to be wonderful (thus far). I assume with more usage the products will prove more of themselves, I'm excited. How often do you guys wait until you see results?

Thanks for your recommendations. My parents have me some Clarins items tailored for men's skin for birthday. I think one of them has age defence formula, the Revitalizing Gel that is. I had a few samples and I loved the results within hours.
