Question from Jack.
Michael from The Chap Blog has kindly offered this question for me! Here is his answer below:
“I’m no skin care professional, however my skin can get temperamental dependent on what products I use and the type of ingredients it has in it. I try to use products which don’t have Parabens, SLS or SLES in them because generally they will be good for all types of skin.
Some of my favourite Face Scrubs have to be Green People Organic Skincare for Men, The Real Shaving Co., The Gentry Grooming Co., and Bulldog. They all do a fantastic job of getting rid of dead, dry skin, plus they help to soften and lift the beard before shaving so they’re great pre- shave products as well.
If it’s a face wash your after then I would recommend Bulldog, however Green People, and Murad have a two in one Face Wash/Cleanser and Shaving Gel/Cream in one tube which does a great job of minimising shave bumps and shave burn whilst keeping your face feeling lovely and clean and hydrated.
Two Moisturisers I’ve used and really like are Murads Face Defence SPF15 and The Real Shaving Co. SPF15 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. The latter is a lot thicker and seems to soak in quicker but both provide some protection against the elements. However any moisturiser will not replace proper sun block!
All of these products vary in price from the standard pharmaceutical store to the more high end premium, but if you choose any of the products I’ve mentioned I don’t think you’ll be disappointed”.
