We already borrow from the boys in terms of fashion, so why not try it when it comes to skincare? While many products targeted to men have been specially formulated with facial hair in mind, most are actually gentle enough to be used by women—and some are even more effective in tackling certain skin issues. Plus, there’s the added bonus that men’s skincare products are generally cheaper than their female counterparts. For all these reasons and more, we rounded up seven skincare products for men that work so well, we can’t help but want to add them into our own beauty routines. From an anti-aging eye cream to a moisturizer for dry skin to an exfoliating face scrub, scroll down to shop them all.

My husband, who is an Australian, uses this lip balm called Lucas Papaw https://amzn.to/2Iaq7Ut and it's amazing. I'm not sure if it's designed for men, but I've started using it and love it. You can use it as lip balm, healing balm or lotion.
