Once upon a time men would get a bit of a ribbing if they admitted to using anti-ageing products. Not any more, in fact, these days, men’s anti-ageing skincare products are pulling in some serious sales.
You might think that men could get away with using their better half’s products but men’s skin is tougher and produces more sebum than women’s so they need a different product altogether.
Here are the ten best men’s anti-ageing skincare products:
Bulldog Anti-Ageing Moisturiser – £6.02
You have to use this twice a day but it is made from oak apple tannins, millet seed and five essential oils. It is said to make the skin look younger and for the price does a pretty decent job.
B. Men Daily Moisture Cream All-in-One – £12.99
Nice product in a handy tin, it is also a multi-tasker which men love. It soothes, moisturises, comforts and dries quickly leaving no greasy residue. Great if you have dry skin.
Clinique for Men Charcoal Face Wash – £18
For those who have problems with excessive oil production or large pores this charcoal face wash will deep clean like no other cleanser. It draws out dirt and excess oil and leaves the face feeling super-cleansed.
Facial Care Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 by Jack Black, 97ml – £23.95
If you work outdoors on a daily basis you should use a moisturiser with an SPF, this one for instance has an SPF of 20 and instantly improves the skins’ texture and appearance. Contains powerful antioxidants and vitamins to help shield skin from premature aging due to sun exposure.
Burberry: Mr Burberry Face Scrub – £26
This is a new range of men’s skincare from Burberry that was a huge hit with our tester. Despite there being no instructions, he managed to work out how to use it and loved the feeling and the texture and how it made his skin feel afterwards.
No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum, 30ml – £26
Part of a well-established and loved range from Boots, this is a great serum (you only need the tiniest amount) that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Our tester has not used it for long enough to see whether wrinkles will disappear but he does say that his skin feels much smoother.
Skin Care MAX LS Age-Less Power V Lifting Cream by Lab Series, 50ml – £48.95
This serum has ingredients in it that help your own skin boost its own natural collagen production. It repairs sagging skin, lifts the jowls, minimises the look of fine lines, and tightens contours.
Kiehl’s Age Defender Dual-Action Power Serum – £49
Using Cyprus extract this concentrated serum helps to strengthen the skin around the jawline and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. There is also an exfoliating cleaner that uses Moroccan clay to reduce pores and deep clean the skin.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, 30ml – £56
There is Mediterranean algae in this marine cream which helps to add tons of moisture to dry, flaky skin. Thanks to the thick serum you only need a tiny amount and skin feels softer, smoother and hydrated.
Sisley: The Sisleÿum for Men Anti-age Global Revitaliser, 100ml – £170
As far as men’s anti ageing skincare products go, this is our most expensive by far, but the naturally-scented product is non-greasy, easily absorbed, and helps to stop razor burn whilst it softens the skin. Great if used after shaving. We also found that broken veins looked better and large pores were smaller after application.
