Lab Series For Men
Lab Series for Men is owned by the Estee Lauder Corporation, Lab Series Skincare for Men was previously known as Aramis Lab Series for Men. Estee Lauder has other brands that offer male-specific products, including Clinique Skin Supplies for Men and Aveda Men, but the Lab Series products are better by far. Generally perceived that men’s products fall far behind those of women’s products regarding good skin care, a few good products in a men’s line is most welcomed!
With regard to the ingredients in the Lab Series range, there isn’t anything in these formulas that you don’t find in products specifically for women. Regardless of gender, skin is skin; although hormonal elements do play an important part, for instance, male hormones make a man’s skin thicker and more oily than woman’s, whereas female hormones make a woman’s skin smoother and softer, and often with smaller pores than a man.
However, in regard to what either gender needs to maintain healthy, protected skin, there is little or no fundamental difference. When it comes to the numerous skin problems the human body can develop and need help with, such as acne, sun damage, free-radical damage, growing older, rosacea, psoriasis, and so on, there is little research to show that men require products that are markedly different to those that women need.
Lab Series Skincare for Men want to encourage guys to become more interested in keeping up their appearance using a sensible skin-care routine, with its masculine, no-nonsense packaging and plenty of products to give the Best Skin Care for Men – Maintaining Healthy Skin.
The Lab Series range offers good cleansers; some excellent moisturizers, including some with sunscreen; a good selection for the morning shaving ritual, such as an excellent shave cream and shave gel, and well-formulated post-shave lotion.
Good absorbent face masks and lip balm; many products are fragrance-free; with packaging that keeps light and air-sensitive ingredients stable during use.

It is a lightweight lotion that contains several soothing, skin healing and cell-communicating ingredients that are perfect for shaved skin, all without fragrance. This product is capable of making just-shaved skin feel calm and comfortable and helps tremendously with post-shave irritation and redness, I would highly recommend.

This Thin-textured energizing gel scrub will give you smoother, clearer skin and helps provide a closer shave. Actively exfoliates to smooth skin’s texture unclogs pores of debris and sebum, preps the skin for a smoother shave. Energizing gel scrub removes dead skin cells, and stimulates blood flow to create a younger, healthier look.
Water, Alcohol Denat, Polyethylene, Glycerin, Tea Carbomer, Oleth-20, Prunus Armeniaca Seeds (Crushed Apricot), Menthol, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol.
How To Use:
Apply to wet face and neck 2 or 3 times per week with fingertips using a circular motion, then rinse.
I use it every few days for that deep down cleaning, especially when I have been doing something that has left me feeling sweaty or dirty.
Exfoliating is an important way to keep your skin smooth and radiant. It’s like giving your face or body a helping hand to clear away its dead skin, and this makes way for new cells to come through and provide the skin surface a fresh, radiant appearance.
Take care when exfoliating your face, mainly so if you decide to use a ‘scrub’ type exfoliator. Make sure you don’t scrub your face too often, and when you do, only ‘scrub’ your face very lightly. Rubbing too hard on your face and too frequently will cause more harm than good to your skin.
The scrub itself has a mild abrasiveness to it, but enough to remove any dead skin cells, making the skin smooth and making it easier to shave, you get a closer cut shave without any friction of the blade going across the surface, and avoiding any nicks or cuts. It is good to use if you haven’t shaved for a few days or have rough skin, it helps to soften the facial hairs. It does a wonderful job of exfoliating facial skin and is one of the best scrubs I’ve used.
If you use soaps and other lotions on your face, you probably aren’t aware of what gets left behind on your skin. You can’t expect moisturizers and creams to help your skin if it’s clogged up when you apply them. Get rid of the dead skin cells using exfoliators, and when you use Lab Series face creams you will be delighted with the results! I would recommend this product.
DAY RESCUE DEFENSE LOTION SPF-35
Formulated for all skin types.
What It Does:
Lightweight, invisible daily moisturizer with SPF-35 helps defend against high-impact elements of the environment – sun, climate, and pollution, that can lead to dehydrated skin and the look of stress and premature aging. It is Fast-absorbing, Non-acnegenic.
This Non-greasy formula absorbs quickly into your skin.
The Broad Spectrum SPF 35 filters UVA/UVB rays to prevent damage and protect skin from early signs of aging brought on by the sun.
HYDRA-ENDURE Technology joins barrier reinforcers and a blend of extracts from plants that are capable of enduring extreme weather conditions. Together, they help skin to absorb & retain hydration and defend against the damaging effects of infrared rays, pollutants, and other external aggressors.

How To Use:
Apply to clean face and neck daily – before going into the sun.
This is an excellent all-day moisturizer and sunscreen for normal to oily skin. The lightweight texture offers excellent skin protection for a fresher, healthier-looking complexion. The easily absorbed lotion will appeal to men who don’t like to feel a layer of product on their skin, but who need a moisturizer for dry areas and to rebuild moisture barrier to keep skin comfortable and balanced.
The SPF35 protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays and pollution, while antioxidants help to guard against the signs of aging.
This moisturizer and sunscreen is one of the best products from Lab Series and is far better than many other sunscreens available in men’s skin-care lines. One more positive, although this contains fragrance, the amount is low, and this doesn’t have a strong scent to it.
The one slight problem for me is the size of the tube. To use this as a moisturizer and sunscreen protector you have to be reasonably generous with the amount you apply for maximum protection, this means a 50ml tube won’t last very long, it needs to be a minimum 100ml size, and a little more cost effective would be appreciated! That said, this is an excellent product that I would highly recommend.
