A New Era Of Men’s Grooming Products c/o Truman’s
(Let’s Get Groomed)
New York-based full-service barbershop, Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers recently launched a fun line of men’s skincare & grooming products. And, as I continue my quest for Pharell-like youthful skin (yo, he’s 44 years old), here’s my take on three products from their line.
Over the last month, I’ve been using Truman’s Gentlemen’s Groomers products — everything from their moisturizing shampoo to their lip balm. Needlesstosay, this feature could easily be a review of all their products, but, I’ll focus on the Facial Scrub, Facial Cleanser & Facial Moisturizer.
Facial Scrub $22
Guys, the key to great skin is one part exfoliation and the other drinking lots of water. However, finding a facial scrub that can get rid of those dead skin cells and moisturizes at the same time can be a struggle. If you saying to yourself, “I’ve used scrubs in the past and it just feels like bits of sand ripping my skin apart”. Trust me, I understand your struggle and I’m thrilled that this wasn’t my experience with the face scrub.
Upon my first use, here’s what I noticed and loved about this facial scrub:
- The texture is smooth with the right amount of grain to remove dead skin
- With sunflower seed oil, eucalyptus and menthol oil as its key ingredients, the immediate feeling to my skin was purely invigorating & moisturizing. This hasn’t been the case with all scrubs that I’ve used.
Facial Cleanser $18
Similar to the face scrub, the facial cleanser has the same key ingredient make-up (eucalyptus, peppermint, sunflower oil). Meaning the post-wash effervescent experience was still to be expected. Keynote, a tiny bit goes a long way — so use it sparingly.
If your skincare falls along the line of constantly clogged pores, this is the face wash to get you on the right track.
Facial moisturizers are definitely a dime a dozen, however; Truman’s facial moisturizer does three things damn near perfect that typically three products:
- It moisturizes
- reduces under-eye bags & inflammation, thanks to the hydrolyzed adansonia digitata extract & vitamin B
- and it cools and soothes your skin (eucalyptus oil)
If there were two products that you were going to buy from this line, be sure to start with this moisturizer and the facial scrub. Both will help you put together a solid skincare routine.
