Men’s skincare dates back to 10,000 B.C. In those more primitive days, men used scented oils to soften skin and mask body.  Perhaps not much has changed.  Or has it?

While today there is undoubtedly a plethora of men’s skincare product choices, we’d be willing to bet that men are still choosing skincare (over the alternative) for virtually the same reasons as their slightly-more-hairy predecessors.  Perhaps what has changed is a heightened awareness about what skincare products we’re putting on our skin.


Seriously natural skincare

While it is virtually impossible to go a day without seeing a product marketed as “natural,” Bulldog Skincare for Men truly is. Frustrated by the lack of options for men made with natural ingredients, Bulldog was born in 2005 after two years of intense research and design by founder Simon Duffy. You could say its purpose built — for men.

In their own words, “We are passionate about what goes into our products and want men to care as much about what they put on their skin as the food they eat. All Bulldog products contain a unique blend of essential oils and other amazing natural ingredients that deliver great skincare performance.”

Designed from the ground up to work simply, effectively and for men, all Bulldog products are certified Cruelty Free, never containing ingredients from animal sources like like common ingredients lanolin and beeswax.  Because of the careful though put into each product, all of Bulldog’s products are suitable for vegans and vegetarians and are approved by the Vegetarian Society in the UK.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst

So as not to end up looking like an old bulldog, Bulldog’s age defense moisturizer is easily absorbed, never leaving behind any oily afterthoughts. It is packed with eight skin-rehydrating essential oils including green tea, green algae, konjac mannan and vitamin E just to name a few. It is also toxin, phthalate and paraben free — packaged in a simple recyclable container.

Not looking to win an age defying medal?  Bulldog’s face wash will at least keep your mug feeling refreshed and free of dirt and debris.  Gentle and non-dying, Bulldog’s face wash is packed with eight essential oils and green tea. It too is toxin, phthalate and paraben free and packaged in a simple recyclable container.

For those looking to overhaul their skincare routine, Bulldog offers a variety of starter kits, including:

  • Oil Control Full Face Kit
  • Sensitive Starter Kit
  • Original Full Body Kit
  • Original Beard Kit

Dogs are man’s best friend, so its only fitting that Bulldog Men’s Skincare is your face’s best friend. Give it a try.
