Skincare for Men: Eshu & Arbonne

While not a grooming site, OTC does on occasion highlight skincare products designed specifically for men.

Like it or not, as we age our skins does often show the varying ravages of time.  While this is not as big a deal for men as it is for ladies, taking care of your skin does have important benefits, like not being mistaken for a grandfather, until you actually are one.

Eshu, a new skincare line from Australia that launched in Macy’s this past May, is a great new option designed specifically for men.  With a clean, contemporary and utilitarian look, the packaging will not be confused with your wife or girlfriend’s flowery lotion and the products themselves are actually a pleasure to use.

The full, but not overloaded range includes face wash, face scrub, moisturizer, a cleansing brick, pre-shave oil and shave cream.  All of their products contain unique Australian ingredients such as Kakadu Plum and Paperback Oil.

Eshu, named for the Yorba god of, among other things, perspective, is designed and made entirely in Australia, where the driest continent on earth takes its toll on men’s skin. Influenced by the country’s no nonsense attitude on life,  these skin care products are simple and effective and have no complicated explanations or difficult regimes to follow.

I really like the moisturizer and face wash myself and have been using both regularly.  They are straightforward products that have substance to them but not the hype.  As the packaging states, “We believe skincare is important, but it’s not rocket science.  It should be easy and uncomplicated.  No long chemical explanations, no flowery product descriptions.”

Arbonne, a brand already known to many women recently rebanded its mens product line under the “RE9 Advanced” label.  To be honest, I tend to get annoyed when labels try to be too faux technical, but in this case, the overall packaging and label has a nice masculine and reasonably uncluttered feel.

Again, the moisturizer is a hit with me, particularly because the one they sent along is SPF 20, a good choice for my fair skin.  The one-piece twist open/close cap is a pretty cool feature too.

The RE9 line includes an exfoliating wash, shave gel, post-shave balm and that killer moisturizer.  And, like Eshu, it claims some pretty interesting ingredients like Sea Buckthorn oil, Red Seaweed Extract and the catchy sounding Bisabolol.

    My husband and a few of my friends’ husbands use the Arbonne men’s line. They absolutely love the shave gel because it has gotten rid of their razor burn. No more red bumps on their necks! The exfoliating wash that you use first, helps to give you a closer shave, as well.

    I have shared my Arbonne RE9 eye cream with two guy friends. One who’s wife is an Arbonne user but told him to get his own! My son is now using the Arbonne shave gel as well as the acne wash. They work great together! No red splotchiness or red bumps at all.

    My husband absolutely loves the Arbonne Men line. He loves everything about it and now is into using my eye cream and loves the RE9 Body Wash too.

    My husband also loves the arbonne men line, but I really love the shave gel. It’s great for shaving your legs.

    So the author describes what Eschu means, but is annoyed with the name Re9 Advanced. Does the Yorba god of perspective really have more to do with skin care than 9 proven botanical anti aging ingredients delivered with patent pending science? I appreciate the unique Australia ingredients, but Arbonne is taking Australia by storm because science combined with the best botanicals delivers results.

  7. My husband loves the RE9 Advanced line. It took EVERYTHING in my being to get him to stop using his drug store products that contain mineral oil as he kept saying “guys don’t need this stuff”, but once I did, he was a convert forever! He recently went on a trip and decided to just us the products at the hotel. He actually texted me to say how gross and slippery his face felt after using their shave cream and moisturizer and swore to always bring his skincare with him next time!

    as a consultant for Arbonne I tried really hard to get my husband to try the products. He said that he would not as it was too expensive for his taste and didn’t want to get Involved with what I was doing. He then used my RE9 facial scrub and found it actually was helping his break out areas on his chest and temples that he couldn’t ever clear up. Now when he has used half the bottle he makes sure to remind me to order more for him. (he ran out once and I’ve learned to keep a second one on hand.) Needless to say my husband has tried and now using other products by Arbonne.

  9. Once a man uses Arbonne’s Re9 Advanced line…they are hooked and are asking for a replacement, way before out of present supply. My husband and male customers love RE9 Advanced for men! Facial scrub easy to use in shower, gives results of really clean, smooth skin in preparation for the awesome moisturizer. Thank You! Arbonne, always on the cutting edge of the very best Pure, Safe Skin Care & Free of harmful chemicals.
