Once a week, Birchbox’s resident yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will give us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.
Given that summer is officially here, I have moved into using lightweight facial moisturizers. As my skin tends to get oily in the summer, I like products with a gel texture that minimize shine. In my search for the right summer moisturizer, I have come across two products that are lightweight, have balancing properties, and deliver a wonderful effect—they actually perk up your skin! Summer is the time for long weekends and late nights (and hopefully both are punctuated by plenty of margaritas). Don’t spend your days with a tired-looking complexion—try my picks below.
Action Anthony For Men Rescue Gel Treatment: I recently discovered this gel treatment and I am really loving it. The fresh scent and slick gel texture is perfect for warm summer mornings when your skin needs that extra zing to wake up. It goes on so smoothly and easily you’d have no idea how much it does for your skin. It has acqua cacteen stem extract for intense hydration, chlorella vulgaris extract for anti-aging, and caffeine to help circulation. It’s a great product from a line that really knows men’s skin.
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Moisturizer: The Facial Fuel line from Kiehl’s has become a favorite for men seeking a simple way to hydrate and invigorate skin. This moisturizer is slick and light and while it’s not as hydrating as the Anthony product, it does leave skin feeling fresh and looking bright. When you need something that’s quick, this ‘facial recovery accelerator’ gives you instant results.
