Kiehls facial fuel for men moisturiser

Being a beauty blogger, you can imagine that I try a lot of skin care for myself, and while you would think this might mean my husband has a skin care shelf too, believe me he doesn't. I get the odd complaint here and there that he needs a moisturiser, or sometimes he will ask what face wash he should buy instead of using shower gel, I cringe too, but overall he has decent skin. A black head or two once in a while, but other than it being dry and flaky hes pretty much jolly without skin care. So what happened when I forced him to try this moisturiser? 

When I went to the Kiehl's on wheels event, you can find my post all about it here, they were kind enough to give us a goody bag with samples in, and this was one of them. I was so pleased to see a men's sample in there as I know that a lot of the time the goody bags are focused on more female targeted skin care. I know skin care is not gender specific in a lot of ways, but it was refreshing to go to an event with all females and yet walk away with a product my husband could test out and see if he enjoyed.

The product has the slightest hint of s blue tint to it, but it is almost white. The texture is a light cream with a thinner consistency which works into the face easily. My husband applies a few dots of the moisturiser to his face and works the product into the skin. The moisturiser rubs in easily and doesn't leave any residue or greasy feeling on the skin. 

After getting a few uses from the sachet, we could see a noticeable difference in my husbands skin. He no longer looked as flaky, a few slightly drier areas were still showing signs of dryness but were also showing improvements on what they were to begin with. I wish I had taken before and after photos, but believe me, it was like he had dandruff on his face on the worst flaky days before moisturising with this! My husband was particularly fond that there wasn't a residue left on the skin as he isn't keen on those sorts of things, hence his avoidance of skin care. 

Overall, when asked, my husband said he would buy this again, I asked him based on him not knowing the brand or price point of the product. At £21.50 for 75ml and £33 for 125ml this isn't the cheapest moisturiser on the market, but it worked well and definitely did what it was supposed to. After sharing the price point, my husband said he would repurchase based on the price, however, he would want to try some cheaper, drug store alternatives before doing so in order to compare it to some cheaper things on the market and get a feel for what else is out there now he has seen the difference a moisturiser would make as a permanent feature in his routine. You can find out more about the products on the Kiehl's site here if you are interested. Let me know in the comments if you like reading up on male related products as I can bring my husband back into the field of beauty testing if you would like to know more!
