Although I can’t get behind “guyliner” and “manscara”, I CAN support guys taking good care of their skin with products like those in the XY Homme range, a new men’s-only line from skincare experts La Roche-Posay. (Check out my review of Hydreane Teinte, their latest tinted moisturizer, here.)
The collection was designed with men’s specific skin needs in mind: compared to women, they have thicker and oilier skin that’s more prone to redness, ingrown hairs and dehydration.
The Hydrating Barrier Gel ($27) and Normalizing Anti-Redness Balm ($27) won’t clog pores while hydrating dry skin and soothing irritation.
For shaving, there’s the Soap-Free Emollient Shaving Foam ($15) and the Micro-Exfoliating Emollient Shaving Gel ($15). Both suit sensitive skin, with the latter providing a gentle buffing action to prevent ingrown hairs.
Available at drugstores across Canada.
