Q. What ingredients should I look for in a mens moisturiser?
When it comes to moisturizers for men, your lifestyle and skin type tend to dictate what ingredients would suit you best. All Patricks products are put through their paces in our Test Pilot program prior to release, where a large, diverse group of Patricks Pilots (lab rats, if you will) commit themselves to road testing our formulations, first, to help us hone in on the perfect blend of ingredients to make the most effective mens face cream.
With dryness, dullness, dehydration, premature ageing and damage from free radicals the most common skin complaints amongst our test group, our AM1 Delta Complex proved the best formula to uniformly address those concerns. Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea Extract, Vitamins C+E, Omegas 3, 6 + 9 and Ceramides systematically work to boost hydration, accelerate the production of collagen, prevent transepidermal water loss, reverse signs of ageing and protect from cellular damage.
We could talk it up and claim we’ve made the best men’s moisturiser… but we don’t want to sound like a braggart. So we’ll let the GQ award we copped for it take it from here!
Q. I’ve been pinching my missus’ cream and she’s said she’s had enough. Isn’t it all the same stuff though? Do I really need to use a face moisturiser for men?
Yeah look, we’re on your missus’ side here. If you are, you know - a man, you should probably use a face moisturizer for men, and there are several good reasons why.
For a start, women tend to like that shiny sorta look. Words like ‘dewy’ and ‘luminous’ yield big bucks in the women's beauty game, whereas our research has shown that men usually opt for a more ‘matte’ finish. Though if you do want to get round looking like a glazed donut you’ll find no judgement here!
The best men’s face moisturiser, the best face cream for men, is the one that takes a tailored and targeted approach specifically to mens skin. It doesn’t need tints or flowery fragrances, it doesn’t need to sit nicely beneath layers of make-up. Patricks products are all killer, no filler - containing high strength active ingredients that keep working whatever the day throws your way, giving your skin's cells the kick up the arse they need to repair and protect themselves from within.
Q. After thirty odd years of simply washing my face, I’m starting to see wrinkles forming around my eyes and forehead. I feel this is the time to invest in skincare, would you say AM1 was the best mens moisturizer?
Research has shown that men's skincare routines are significantly simpler, involving considerably less steps and far fewer products than many women’s routines. We are often asked about the best moisturizer for men - a question that comes as no surprise, since many men only use one or two face products. Quality over quantity is key.
AM1 is scientifically formulated and hyper concentrated, featuring 13 high-grade pharmaceutical ingredients designed to stop premature ageing in its tracks. With a focus on hydration and cellular repair, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. Healthy cell function and antioxidant protection are also increased, protecting from future environmental damage and stress.
You’re not getting any younger. Now is definitely the time to invest!
