For those of you who know me, you know I am a product queen, and I know how hard it is for me to narrow the products down for this feature. What you may not have realized is that currently men are the largest and fastest-growing demographic in this industry, spending $17.5 billion a year on skin care products. Well, here are my picks:
Skin Sense – Pure Hyaluronic Serum (2 oz. – $50) – Urban Retreat has custom formulated Skin Sense with FDA-cleared labs. This is the serum I talked about in the spa feature and it’s amazing. You literally see results the instant you apply it.
You cannot go wrong with any product in the Ormedic Image Skincare line. This revolutionary product line is a synthesis of the purest organic ingredients combined with medical effectiveness to achieve clinically-proven results.
The philosophy of Ormedic is to balance the skin’s health with certified organic ingredients, highly potent antioxidants and essential botanicals, without the use of chemicals, acids or parabens (Google how bad parabens are for men). Formulated for all skin types to balance, restore and deliver health — the natural way.
Balancing Eye Lift Gel – A balancing, hydrating, and lifting eye gel with organic ingredients and medical effectiveness. The multipeptide formula reverses the signs of aging.
Balancing Lip Enhancement Complex – Specifically designed to enhance the appearance and volume of lip contours. This ultra-hydrating, powerful polypeptide lip enhancement complex will add up to 40% of moisture volume with repeated usage. Diminishes fine lines as well as reduces inflammation after lip injections. Use of this product will complement and enhance the effects of professional dermal fillers.
