AVEENO Men's face wash, shave gel, and after shave lotion

I received some Johnson & Johnson products for review on my dad blog. The products I’m reviewing are the AVEENO Men’s face wash, shave gel, and after shave lotion. [Disclosure: I am participating in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for AVEENO. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.]

I use to work from home. Back then I could wear shorts and t-shirt, but now I have to dress up every day. No jeans, shorts, t-shirts or boxers. Just kidding about the boxers. I also use to shave only 2-3 times a week when I worked at home, but now I shave daily. It only takes me a few minutes to shave, but I’ve noticed my face is more sensitive now. The razor is starting to irritated my skin and my face feels dry most of the day at the office.

I’ve just started using the AVEENO Men’s Collection, but I like the products so far. They feature ACTIVE NATURALS Oat, which has been used in skincare for centuries and is known for its cleansing, moisturizing and soothing properties. The products are made with a fragrance-free formula, and is designed for men with sensitive skin (like me). BTW, AVEENO is the #1 dermatologist recommended shave line.

I didn’t know this the first time I used the AVEENO Men’s products, but you’re suppose to use the face wash first. According to the product literature, the face wash helps soften facial hair, prepares skin for a better shaving experience, and helps prevent nicks and cuts. I’m not exactly sure how that works, but I do know the wash makes my face tingle and contains an ingredient that helps exfoliate dead skin cells. It seems to do a better job than a bar of soap. The face wash is my favorite of the three AVEENO products I’ve tried.

The next item is the shaving gel, which makes my shaving experience less annoying. The product is suppose to help reduce razor bumps, nicks and cuts. I use an electric shaver so I didn’t really have those problems before I started using the shave gel. However, my skin doesn’t seem to get irritated like before. BTW, you only need a dap of the AVEENO Men’s shave gel. It lathers up as you rub the gel on your face.

The third item in the AVEENO Men’s Collection is the after shave lotion. The product forms a protective barrier on the skin to prevent moisture loss. Based on my experience, my skin didn’t seem to dry out during the day like before. BTW, the after shave lotion came out thicker than I expected. It took a little getting use to the first time I applied the product on my face, but I’m fine with it now.

  1. Thanks for the review. Nice to read a review of a mens product done by a man. I may just give this a try sometime.
