Men’s Facial Moisturizers 2.0

No longer the ugly stepbrothers of the beauty industry, men’s facial moisturizers have upgraded with better textures and ingredients. Enough so that we wondered if they may better some women’s products. Below, this female reporter tests four.

Lab Series Skincare for Men Max LS Light Moisture Lotion
This liquid lotion provided surprisingly thorough hydration with a featherweight feel. The product also layered well with sunscreen (and makeup). But those with drier complexions may still prefer a richer cream, especially at night. ($54 for 3.4 fluid ounces
Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm
There were persuasive reasons to root for this moisturizer (which seemed more serum than balm), from its indie origins in Vermont to the organic ingredients (100 percent natural, 82 percent organic, says the label). But alas, the sticky residue was unforgivable. There’s also a strong herbal fragrance on application, but the odor quickly faded. ($36 for 2.5 fluid ounces
Jack Black Epic Moisture MP10 Nourishing Oil
An intriguing oil blend that felt dry to the touch and left a pleasant fresh scent, this will suit multitaskers. With ingredients like argan and moringa seed oils, it moisturized, did a solid job of taming frizzy hair, soothed dry cuticles and lubricated before shaving — but left a faintly shiny finish. ($32 for 2 fluid ounces at
Every Man Jack Face Lotion in Sandalwood
Every Man Jack has earned many devotees for its straightforward and wallet-friendly approach to men’s grooming, including unscented and mint facial lotions. Its latest, which is sandalwood-scented, absorbs and moisturizes well, but the fragrance was a tad overwhelming. ($7.49 for 4.2 fluid ounces at Whole Foods)
