Kiehl’s, one of my favorite skincare brands, just announced the launch of Oil Eliminator for Men. It’s a brand new line specifically created to address oil skin in men. It consists of three products to help mattify the skin and minimize the appearance of enlarged, clogged pores. For my husband, this launch could not have come at a better time. He had just been complaining about his shiny skin and how nothing was stopping him from looking greasy lately!
The Oil Eliminator uses a special ingredient, Aerolite, which is an advanced material based on the science of aerogel, which has been used in space exploration. It’s the lightest solid material on Earth because it is composed of up to 99.98% air by volume, helping to provide a weightless feel on the skin. The substance is likened to a gel from which the liquid portion has been removed without causing the material to shrink in size or collapse. Due to its highly porous structure and large surface area, it is able to absorb four times its own weight in oil. Whoa!
The products in the range include the Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash, the Refreshing Shine Control Toner, and the 24- Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men. All three products have a clean, spicy scent to them.
The Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash has exfoliating beads in it but it’s not too rough. It exfoliates and lathers so you don’t need much at all. Another brand my husband has tried is harsher and takes off more dead skin, but this one works better because it’s not as harsh and he’s able to maintain smoother skin on a daily basis. It doesn’t leave his skin feeling tight and dry but does wick away the oil!
Mike has used my toners in the past but never liked them because he needed a cotton ball to apply it to his face, which then got stuck in his facial hair. The Refreshing Shine Control Toner is in a spray bottle so it’s much easier for guys to use. He tried spraying it on his face but ended up preferring spraying his hands with it and rubbing it on his face because it was getting in his eyes. He said it felt refreshing and dried quickly, which was nice because he didn’t want to have to wait to apply the moisturizer!
The 24-Hour Anti Shine Moisturizer for Men is a great lightweight moisturizer that’s non greasy and you don’t need much at all. During the day, usually by 10 am Mike’s face was super oily, and now it’s not until late in the afternoon that the shine comes. He’s had a tough time finding products geared specifically towards men that addressed oil and shine issues, so this was a huge win for him. We will definitely be repurchasing!
I hope this post reached you in time to make a Father’s Day purchase for a special someone in your life that may suffer from oily skin as well! Either way, Kiehl’s is running a really fun contest from June 5th-June 30th to promote their new product. It’s called “Put Some Space On Your Face.” To launch the new Oil Eliminator line, Kiehl’s sent the 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men into actual space. The bottle was sent 20 miles above the surface of the earth. They have a kind of cute/cheesy video you can watch here.
Beginning on June 5th, you can visit www.kiehlsinspace.com to enter the “Put Some Space On Your Face” contest. You can take a picture of yourself mid-air, and hashtag it #SpaceFace. Random winners will win their face a trip to space via a 3D custom astronaut figurine with their face on it. The figurine will be attached to a shuttle and sent into actual space! Once the figurines land, Kiehl’s will sent them out to the winners. How cool is that!
I am off to go take my #SpaceFace selfie. What a fun contest! Let me know if this or any other pampering product is on your Father’s Day list for the dude in your life. I’m so glad we discovered it!
