Philosophy Introduces Skincare for Men

Philosophy The Microdelivery for Men

In Korean and Japan, skincare created exclusively for men is wildly popular. Not to say we don’t focus on men’s skincare in the US but I don’t think it is as popular as it is in Asia.

Maybe dudes from the US just aren’t as interested as taking care of their skin as Asian men are?! Who knows but men’s skincare isn’t really as common place here in the US as it is in Asia.

Philosophy obviously aims to change that with the introduction of The Microdelivery for Men. Shaving daily can produce ingrown hairs as well as dryness so this new face and body scrub (note that they make a multitasking formula because you know men can’t be arsed to use two different products! That might blew the mind of some manly men out there!) gently buffs away rough, dry skin and tones to prevent ingrown hairs and even out the texture of skin for a smooth, softened finish.

It also works as a pre-shave primer to give your guy a soft, smooth shave!

Philosophy The Microdelivery for Men is available exclusively online at Ulta.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I actually think men’s skincare is going to begin being more important than some people probably think.
    My better half washes his face twice a day with a mens Neutrogena gel cleanser and now uses a Clarisonic before he shaves because it seems to reduce irritating from shaving as well as ingrown hairs.
    My brother (who is 33 years old now) also has started cleansing his face with a men’s facial cleanser by Nivea (for sensitive skin I believe he said it was for. He said his face dries out and his razor burn had been so bad it was hard to look at. He does use a cream on his face now as well that I gave him so kind of not for men, but who cares. 😀
    The point is I think we are entering a time here in the US where skin care is not just going to be ‘woman’s thing’ anymore.
    One thing I will say is the men’s lines of skincare that are released probably will have to start at a lower price point. Most men are just not going to be willing to plop down $100 for a cream like woman. I am interested to see how men in general will respond to men’s skincare products over the next year.

    It’s good that men are getting more targeted products. In my personal experience, men are far less finicky than woman but that doesn’t mean they don’t want supple, clear skin too. I wonder how many of them would be more willing to buy skincare targeted at woman if the packaging was more gender neutral.
