My face is incredibly sensitive. Sadly, it always has been. As a young teen, I struggled with acne and now as a man leaving my teenage years behind I get painful, razor bumps when shaving too often. It also probably doesn’t help that I use generic soaps and lotions to wash and care for my face…
So, when I was given the opportunity to partner with Neutrogena I jumped at the chance. My friends have always spoken highly of their products and have pushed me to spend the extra few bucks to get a face wash, lotion and shave cream that was not only made for sensitive skin but maintained a great smell upon application. Now, I understand why their recommendations were always so strong and why America has made Neutrogena the #1 skin-care line for men!
Neutrogena sent me a bottle of Invigorating Face Wash which is clinically proven to improve skin’s healthy look while not over-drying; the gel cleanser also has a really great cooling lather. Additionally, I received not one, but two, products from the Razor Defense Line: The Shave gel and Daily Face Scrub. The Shave Gel protects the face from both cuts and razor bumps and The Daily Face Scrub actually builds your skin’s resistance to razor irritation! Finally I received the Triple Protect Face Lotion which has SPF 20 sunscreen. As I am going abroad in the next few months, having a lotion that protects my face from my own silly mistakes and the sun’s harmful effects is a must!
These neutrogena products have really made me reevaluate the way I care for myself. As a man, I find that there is not enough stress placed on how important our face actually is (not just for attracting people) but for overall health. It may seem silly but caring for my face in this way and watching my skin really light up has encouraged me to care for my body more completely and I know it will only get better from here!
