Real Men Use Skincare

BLOG, Skincare, Uncategorized / Sunday, October 7th, 2018

October is all about men’s skincare, I am talking about four must have men’s skincare products to nourish your skin this fall.

Is men’s skin really that different than a women’s? If you read my article 3 Simple Skincare Steps For Every Man, then you know the answer!

What I really find interesting, is I recently decided to poll my audience on Facebook asking the question “Does your man know how to take care of his skin?” and 85% voted that their man has NO idea!  I decided this was something that I needed to change…

Now if you know anything about me, I have been a cosmetologist for a couple decades, so I just may know a little about tis subject.  But I will admit, that when it comes to the men in my life (my husband and children) they aren’t the best at this subject.  So I did what anyone would do, I decided to do a Facebook LIVE video interviewing my husband on, you guessed it, men’s skincare!!  My husband was a trooper, especially since this was his FIRST LIVE VIDEO!!  I know, I know, but the timing was impeccable!  He just tuned 50, AND he’s starting to realize that he should start using things that will improve his skin.  Not to mention, I just launched a new men’s skincare line Lumiere de Vie Hommes. If you missed the video, catch it here 🙂

Now that we have all of that settled, where should men start?  My thought is, let’s start simple.  It honestly doesn’t take much time to incorporate just a few steps into your routine.  But it is important for men to use the right products.  Men’s skin is very different than women’s and so it only makes sense to have special formulations made just for men.

What do real men have to say?


“I love the men’s line it made my beard a significant amount softer and my face feels a whole lot smoother. I will definitely be continuing to use these products.”


“I have never wanted to use skincare even though my wife has always tried to convince me to. There have been quite a few

wasted products that she has bought me over the years that sat in the bathroom cabinet. Nothing ever looked masculine so I felt like I was just using her skincare. I love the new Lumiere Men’s line. It feels light and smells fresh. None of the scents from the products interfere with my cologne too, which is a bonus. I love the moisturizer it makes my skin feel nice without feeling like I have anything on. I like the beard elixir at night to moisturize my beard while I sleep. It helps keep it from feeling dry and brittle. If I have any left on my hands in the mornings, I rub it on my tattoos because it makes them look good.”


“So like most men, I was usually just like “I use soap, I get a haircut, we’re good!” However, my fiancé would periodically bring things to my attention by “subtly” letting me know, “Hey you need to take care of your beard.” I joke when I say subtly because she was actually more direct! I would just use Royal Spa on my face and beard and call it a day.
However, it came to my attention that my beard was drying out very quickly, and oddly enough I would constantly fidget with my beard because it felt like something was out of place or maybe subconsciously I was thinking too much about what Brittany told me haha!
Before we came out with Lumière de Vie beard oil I just used some $8 generic brand. Sure it worked ok, but it also wasn’t exclusive of ours so I hated buying it. I tried another generic brand that ended up smelling like peanuts, seriously it smelled like peanuts! It was so bad Brittany would tell me my beard smelled weird (and she wasn’t wrong haha)! But when it was announced we were coming out with a men’s care line my lovely fiancé was the FIRST to let me know, and practically ORDERED me to start using it! Let’s be honest though if all she wants is for me to be nice, smell good, cook food, and build the business together that’s not asking a lot LOL.
I love our beard oil because it actually does smell phenomenal, the fruit oils used to make it SO much more appealing than what I was using before. And truthfully from a guy’s perspective…it just gets the job done and that’s what we need the stuff to do. I think a lot of men overlook the small details but they’re very important. I want to be really careful and not stereotype, but self-care easily gets overlooked. But if we’re in the gym, working on a car, or doing anything else…there’s a specific tool to accomplish the task. It’s no different when keeping up with our appearance.”



“Well the new Hommes line DID NOT disappoint at all!!!


I absolutely love the cleanser it smells great and I really feel like it has helped manage my oily skin in the last seven days of using it.

I can not say enough about the aloe moisturizer in 7 days it has become my favorite moisturizer we have between all the lines!! My skin is drastically softer, more hydrated throughout the day and it smells soooo good (in a manly way lol)

Let’s talk about the beard elixir… I am subscribed to the Dollar Beard Club, so every month a pay $7 for a beard balm and oil that I have to brush into my beard to keep it luscious (😂😂)… on the first day of using the beard elixir I canceled my subscription… it is that amazing!! My beard feels really conditioned without being oily and having a strong smell all day. If you know someone who has a beard I’m telling you they have heard of dollar beard club and they are probably subscribed… what we have is 100x better in every way and it’s not oily which was one thing I was so happy about.

I absolutely love the line!! I hope we get more products for this line because I am 100% SOLD !!”
