Perfect Guy Friendly Facial Products!
Not many skin care products are formulated specifically for men, which is why we were excited to discover Mënaji while browsing The Plaza Shops. The brand was founded by celebrity makeup artist Michele Probst, who was inspired by her male clients - the likes of Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Prez Obama are noted fans - to create formulas that would make for an easy, at home skin care regimen.
The products, which come in black and brown tubes, range from face and body scrubs, to aftershave lotions and concealers. We tried the deep cleansing mask ($26), which uses vitamins A,C, and E, as well as anti-oxidents and natural clays and botanicals to gently clean skin. The masque has a refreshing scent, but isn't laden down with fruity, artificial fragrances. The face and body scrub ($30) is equally invigorating, made with jojoba beads, ginseng, sea kelp, aloe vera and organic lime juice. And while most men are hesitant to use Makeup, the fragrance free Camo concealer ($26) comes in a black tube that looks like chap-stick and rubs in for a undetectable finish. Why should men have to suffer from unsightly breakouts? The moisturizing shave cream is another must have, it soothes skin with ingredients including chamomile, viatmin E and green tea while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We know boys will be boys, but now there's no need to ignore your skin! -- AMANDA LIBBY
