    I've actually been thinking about trying the Shiseido stuff, I first saw it a few weeks ago at Coin...

    Will let you know if it seems good if I do buy some stuff!

    Hmmm... I must try this shiseido stuff. But people tell me that I look young, so maybe the cheaper stuff is still working out for me. :lol:

    OK, I bought the Shiseido Men Cleansing Foam. I like it a lot, it's the best of its kind I've tried. My skin usually feels very dry and taut after I've washed my face, but only ever so slightly using this cleanser. It feels very good for my skin! :heart: it!

    I made sure I got a sample of the Total Revitalizer, the anti-ageing cream. It feels more like a thin gel than a cream; it has a quite slippery feel and just gliiiiiides on, a little really does go a long way. It creates a filmy layer which turns very smooth and matte after a moment. Looks and feels really nice!

    What I don't like is that the cream makes my face (especially forehead) feel a little bit stiff... Might be proof that it's working some magic, or not hydrating enough or something? I don't know, I haven't had time to evaluate these products thoroughly... They do seem to be nice!

    The biggest drawback IMO is that these products don't contain sun screen. Or if they do, they don't advertise it.

    welldone tott, glad to know the products are worth it
    and thanks for coming back with the good news.

    what if the Revitaliser is for night?
    most of them work better during sleep hours..

    i'm definatly getting the cleansing thing for my friend Frederic :heart:

    maybe you should ask them regarding the sunscreen,
    all products have sunscreen so i cant see how those will be without
    Shiseido skin technology rules :blush:

    The Revitalizer is for day as well as night, men's skincare keep it simple. Not too many complicated steps because men aren't used to following daily/nightly multiple-step programs...

    All products do not contain sun screen, unfortunately... You'd think they would, but they don't.

    :wacko:

    Just to make sure, I'll ask! ;)

    i got some samples of it today......but dont really understand the science of it :unsure:

    apparently you apply hydrating lotion on top of the t-zone to regulate it

    I use Erno Lazlo it's really super I get it at Saks but they have it at Space NK as well as Harrods but I don'tr really like Harrods I would buy it from Fortum Mason or Harvey Nichols...but I also have great skin so I don't really don't have to do too much with it thank God...I never really noticed I had good skin until I went shopping for skin care products and the sales ladys would always say my skin is so lovely :blush: I would assume someone selling skin care wouldn't say something like that to someone thats looking to buy products as they tend to point out all the bad spots on your face and tell you wot you need to do to treat them.

    pffffffft

    I LOVE my St. Ives Whipped Silk

    it's cheaper than practically everything mentioned here and it works phenomenally... at least on my skin!

    Kiehl's stuff is good, but really, I can't afford it.

    The concept of men's cosmetics is completely lost on me. Beard shader, get real! :rolleyes:
    I know somebody who dyes their goatee and think it's absolutely ridiculous.
    As far as skin care, sure, but nothing that's not already out there.
    I think it's kind of funny how "butch-y" their models look.

    face powder???
    whatever :lol:

    i dont see why men need different products to women. its all the same no?
    i can understand if a guy has really hard rouch skin because they need a higher strength formula cleanser, but apart from that its all the same ****

    I have found Gaultier's Le Beau Male line to work quite well. However some of their items can be overly fragranced.

    But for skincare I use women's, specifically la Prairie.

    Sephora has a good selection of men's skincare lines. They don't have cosmetics that I know of except for sunless tanning stuff, but they sell some of the best men's skincare products. Anthony, Zirh and Lab Series are all great.
