Today I am going to introduce you to a skincare brand I have been wanting to try for quite a while. I don’t even know why I hadn’t bought any of their products yet. I am probably too comfortable with what I am using at the moment. However, I feel like the best moment for a change is when you are used to something. Just to try something else. If you regret it, you can always go back to your previous skincare routine or give some other products a go.
The brand I am going to talk about is Recipe For Men. Most of you might have already heard of them, as they are widely available and many people have reviewed their products. It is a Swedish skincare brand created by three men who loved skiing. They wanted some products that could solve the problems Swedish men suffered on their skin due to cold weather. In fact, the aim of the whole brand is to create an effective line that is worth the money.
Under Eye Patches
I tend to go to bed quite late and wake up early in the morning. For this reason, I need to take care of my eyes. Recipe For Men’s Under Eye Patches worked perfectly for that, as they reduced my dark under-eye circles a lot. After cleaning your face, you only need to place them under your eyes for about 20-40 minutes and then leave the excess moisture until it’s absorbed. Your skin feels very hydrated afterwards and you can notice that the puffiness has been reduced. I strongly recommend these if you live a late-night lifestyle as I do. Drinking a lot of water will still be necessary though. Makeup can also help, which is why their Under Eye Primer may help us too, although I haven’t tried it yet.
I wasn’t going to include their Beard Elixir in this post because I don’t have a beard. However, I am very lazy sometimes so I don’t shave as often as I should. It is then when my stubble – if you can even call it like that – gets very itchy. For this reason, I thought I could start using the oil in these situations and it worked perfectly. You only need a few drops and your beard becomes softer and smoother. I feel it is also a great way to take care of it if you can actually grow one and even the skin under your beard. Most men tend to forget about it. Another product that I am willing to try now is their After Shave Balm, as it looks quite promising.
Ultra Sensitive Facial Cleanser
This is probably my favourite one. My skin is very oily, although it is quite sensitive as well. Because of this, some cleansers may be too harsh on it. However, Recipe For Men’s Ultra Sensitive Facial Cleanser has helped me remove the dirt I had on my face and all the excess oils taking care of my skin at the same time. The packaging is very cool. It provides you with the right amount of product that you need. Moreover, its scent is very nice. I am the worst at describing scents but I’d say it smells quite fresh. And that’s exactly how your skin feels after using it too.
Overall, I would say that Recipe For Men is a very good brand. The products I have tried do exactly what they are supposed to do and I am very happy with the results. However, it is true that they are a bit on the pricey side, although I think they are worth the money. I would love to know if you had heard of this brand before and what you think of it. As always, I am also open to any suggestions that you may have about other skincare products I should try.
