As promised to my readers, a second installment was underway for EREZ Organic: an excitable brand from Europe created by two friends that believed ‘conventional’ products shouldn’t run the ever-growing mass beauty sector. Becoming tired and fed-up with brands using chemicals into their lotions and potions, the two found motivation from within to create an organic quality brand that used only the best natural ingredients around to offer a natural alternative result.
Today, we’re discovering a moisturizing, multi-purpose cream that offers so much more than a bog-standard ”any old moisturiser” for men. The Men Need A Cream is something that speaks a thousand words, and yes, every man in the world should be applying some sort of lotion, morning and evening for hydration and skin-protecting purposes, it’s simply a fact of life. This lavish, organic cream is something worth an insight on, being completely lightweight and delicate on the skin, you’ll be completely fooled into thinking this organic cream wasn’t capable to provide anything truly serious.
Firstly, before we dive into the product itself, can we all admire and pay attention to the brand’s eye-catching illustration: apart from the well-textured Jupiter berry bush that adds real-life definition, the rather handsome-looking, hand-created chap with his slick back hair and prominent facial features represents important mancare.
Let’s slowly move onto the ingredients and you’ll soon discover for yourself that this moisturizing cream is a serious contender for the modern, grooming man. Starting with the natural healing oils, first off, we have Arnica that soothes minor skin inflammation. Offering similar skin benefits to Arnica, Gentian root is added into the organic blend for its purifying, high-antioxidant properties. Lavender is used to help heal and soothe skin blemishes and facial reddening. But that’s not it, this widely used antiseptic oil also provides the skin with cell protection from oxidative stress. Jupiter fruit may withhold similar skin properties to Lavender but Jupiter berry is able to naturally unclog problematic pores.
We all know that combining a variety of essential oils together can create a beautiful, uplifting scent, well this men’s moisturizing cream does just that. The use of pure honey and royal jelly adds a delicate, spicy-sweet touch that ”dampens” the over-masculine feel that some male grooming brands seem to push on today’s mass market.
Speaking of Royal Jelly, the two organic enthusiasts added this skin nourishing ingredient, created from honeybees to feed the mighty Queen Bees and her young ones. This yellow-y thick, milky emulsion is nutrient-densed and contains a concoction of b vitamins, natural fats and proteins. There’s also Coenzyme Q10 that acts as a strong antioxidant, protecting our skin cells from free radical damage.
How does it feel? Well, the product itself spends no time wasting and absorbs straight into the skin, leaving no heavy or greasy residue. I wouldn’t say it provides oodles of skin hydration, but at a well-balanced level. It’s important to point out that you need no more than a grape-size amount for the entire face, followed by a generous portion over the neck and décolleté. If you’re more on the drier side then you may wish to apply a serum or essence beforehand.
There are a few ways on how you can enjoyed this organic moisturising cream: apply after shaving to soothe possible skin irritations, massage over beards or designer stubbles for a soft and shiny finish.
Do you developed occasional chafing from training? Adding a little amount of this cream onto the infected area will elevate the irritation. This isn’t just a basic men’s moisturiser, this is something every man should own in his bathroom cabinet.
