In reality, any moisturiser can be moisturiser for men. If it hydrates the skin, keeps it feeling soft and supple, and doesn't leave it greasy, it's good to go.

But there is one product, specially formulated for men, which has received rave reviews from hundreds of shoppers. 

So, if you're looking for a product to keep your loved one's hands off your lotions and potions, or if you're a man keen to look after your skin better, the Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men from Kiehls is the answer.

Why we rate it:

Not only does this moisturiser, specially formulated for men’s skin, give dull, tired complexions a refresh, it also helps control shine to enhance a healthy glow.

The cream is enriched with caffeine and other vitamins so it truly energises skin and, over time, will help to even out texture and protect against pollution and other environmental invaders.

Kiehl’s suggests you only need to apply a dab to clean skin, once or twice a day. So, the reasonably priced £24.50 bottle will go a long way. 

While many men use it straight after a shower, others have added it to their post-shave routine, to cool and refresh skin.   

And once you try it, you may just be hooked, as a string of positive customer reviews reveal that the cream is so beloved by Kiehl's male customers, they're been using it for the better part of a decade. 

What the reviews say:

With over 500 reviews, and 377 customers giving it a full five-star rating, it's easy to see why so many men have popped it in their virtual basket. 

  • "I have been using this religiously with the Facial Fuel Cleanser since 2014. After a shower, it's the energy boost my skin needs. I actually can't imagine getting out of the shower and NOT putting this stuff on. I personally love the smell and the texture. Zero complaints. Well, one. I wish that it came in 1L magnum jugs. I swear, I will be using this until the end of time."

  • "This is my first time buying this moisturiser, and it's excellent. Not greasy at all, it feels great straight after a shave, my skin feels refreshed and soothed. My new favourite skincare purchase."

  • "Been using it every day for years. Love this aftershave product. It’s an essential part of my routine."

  • "I'm now on my 5th purchase of this moisturiser and I can't see me changing it for a different option. It keeps my skin feeling fresh, hydrated and smelling great. You only need to use a small amount so it lasts for AGES!"

  • "I have wanted to kickstart a proper skin care regime for a while and read reviews for this product as part of my research. So pleased with it...The moisture is just right for me and I don't need to apply again later, like I did with my previous product."

  • "Best men’s facial cream I have ever bought… Refreshing and cooling on skin. Applies well and immediately makes my skin feel re-hydrated but without the heavy or greasy feel of other facial creams."

  • "After trying many other top rated/priced products I still find this one to be the best. It sinks in to my skin and never leaves it oily, other products were good but after a second bottle or so my skin would need more. I am now on at least 10 of these over the years and it still works a treat, even with stubble."
