Hey men, I’m so sorry. The world of eco beauty products has completely flourished, but it’s left you behind. These days, you can find a blog post for every type of beauty product or regime possible, but the word ‘woman’ is always in the title. You’ve been reduced to one little section on beauty sites titled ‘men’ (which you can’t often find as it’s so hidden), and if you want to find a good product review or recommendation, not even Google lends a hand.
I see you. I hear you. You have skin and a body that needs looking after in an eco way too. So this one’s for you. A post on super cool eco beauty products for men (finally!):
I could use soft words like nourishing, rejuvenating, and silky smooth, but let’s cut to the chase. This moisturiser will help protect your face from the harsh elements the world throws back at you daily. Sunspots, shaving rash, razor burn… this will definitely help.
Scratch off that dry skin with fair trade coffee grounds and the healing power of Manuka honey. Contained in a simple glass jar, there’s no fuss, no stress, and it’s designed to be okay for your beard too.
Ethique is going to be your new go-to: for everything. Gender neutral and their shampoos are highly rated worldwide. Ethique have a specific shampoo and shaving bar which works best for guys who shave their faces regularly, but honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of their products.
A good beard oil will change a face. This Black Chicken beard oil, helps to avoid frizz, itch, beardruff, and dryness. Everyone loves a glossy beard.
If you’re after a one-step way to clean your face, look no further. Rub it onto your face with water, and rinse off. Done. This Trilogy magic will leave you feeling clean and refreshed, ready to hit the day running.
Men who mask are manly. Trust me. At the end of your lifetime, you’ll be that old man with the glowing skin, and they’ll all wish they ‘masked’ with you. This hydration mask is easily applied to damp skin, left for 15-20 minutes, and washed away. Especially if your job is outdoors in the sunshine, this mask will help to hold in moisture and protect your skin in the long run.
Everyone loves simplicity. The fewer products you need to buy, the better. Made from certified organic ingredients, this bottle will be your BFF from head to toe.
Made in New Zealand from just six ingredients (many of them native to NZ), this massage balm might be the eco-answer to your aches and pains. Simply rub onto the sore muscle, and feel it seep in. Perfect for blokes who do lots of physical labour or for those who just want a pamper.
I’ve found you a natural deodorant that legitimately works, has a neutral smell (not florally), and is made in Australia. It’s made from 100% natural and certified organic ingredients, so your pits will be happy and the planet will be too.
Scrub-a-dub-dub with grape skin and seed oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil. That’s a lot of oils: but don’t worry they’re the good-for-your-skin not the bad-for-the-environment type. Rub this all over your body when in the shower, to remove dead skin, get clean, and nourish new skin. Did you know we shed between 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells a day? This will help get them outta here and make way for your new skin to feel awesome.
