Disco’s Hydrating Face Moisturizer helped us reach a whole new level of confidence. After fighting breakouts, dry, flaky, and oily skin for years, we finally found a product that revived our problematic skin. The Disco moisturizer contains Vitamin E to hydrate and lock in moisture, antioxidant-rich Vitamin C to brighten complexion, and Macadamia Oil to fight the development of those nasty wrinkles. We were also impressed by how easy it was to incorporate into our daily routine!

#2 Rugged & Dapper Age + Damage Defense Facial Moisturizer

User Ratings

4/5

8.8

Overall Ranking

B +

Rugged & Dapper Age + Damage Defense is a hydrating facial moisturizer and soothing aftershave lotion in one. With natural ingredients, it helps defend against the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone & post-shave irritation. We were happy to see that this face moisturizer is fragrance-free, although it did have a slightly unpleasant scent to it.

We really wanted to like this product since we read a lot of positive reviews. However, we found that it was too harsh on our skin to apply twice a day as recommended. When we started using this product on a daily basis, we experienced a slight burning sensation. Once we began to use this product less frequently, the burning sensation went away. We also found the product consistency to be a little heavy, and left those of us with problematic skin feeling oily, greasy and weighed down.

THE BOTTOM LINE

We liked Rugged & Dapper’s facial moisturizer and found that overall it helped moisturize our skin. We do wish the product was a lighter consistency and less oily. Just be cautious if you decide to apply this product on a daily basis, as frequent use irritated our sensitive skin.

#3 Jack Black Clean Break Oil-Free Moisturizer

4/5

Overall Ranking

B

Jack Black’s Clean Break Oil-Free Moisturizer provides a lightweight burst of moisture to protect skin. It contains niacinamide, which can help improve skin tone and texture. We were super excited to see that this product is completely oil-free, since some of our skin can get pretty oily. On the other hand, this product didn’t fix our dry skin. 

We found ourselves applying this product a few times a day because the moisture was short-lasting. Before we knew it, we used the entire bottle without any major results, and this wasn’t cheap! Since this is one of the more expensive men’s face moisturizers on the market, we were happy to see that there is an auto replenishment plan, which offers 5% off plus free shipping.

#4 Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Moisturizer For Men

User Ratings

3/5

8.0

Overall Ranking

B -

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel is designed to revitalize and energize men’s skin for a healthy appearance. We were pleased that this product is not greasy, and a little can go a long way. Although we really liked the scent and cooling sensation, we were alarmed to find out that this product contains fragrance as an ingredient. Men with sensitive skin should be careful when using this product.

We found this product to be too pricey considering its small size. Fortunately, you can save 5% and get free shipping with Kiehl’s auto replenishment plan.

THE BOTTOM LINE

While this did the job, you might like other products on this list better. Kiehls will moisturize your skin but that’s pretty much it. We enjoyed the cooling sensation, but it lasts for only a few seconds.

#5 Lumin Ultra-Hydrating Moisturizing Balm

User Ratings

2/5

7.9

Overall Ranking

C +

Lumin’s Moisturizing Balm is designed to target dullness and dryness, helping your face feel more hydrated and refreshed. With key ingredients such as meadowfoam seed oil, it helps with skin dehydration, sun damage, and oil regulation. We liked that our skin felt refreshed after just a few uses. However, some of us weren’t fully impressed with this product, experiencing oily, greasy skin and breakouts after use.

Guys with sensitive skin should be careful when using this product because it contains fragrance. At this time, Lumin does not offer an auto replenishment plan for individual products.
