Product Commentary: Anthony Oil Free Facial Lotion

Anthony Logistics
Oil Free Facial Lotion
Normal to Oily Skin
Fragrance Free

This is targeted for normal to oily skin (me). I have to say, as far as the way it felt going on and after, it's definitely a top product for me, especially as far as aesthetics go. This is definitely a flagship product for the company, if men are going to be using a basic face lotion, it better be good. And this delivers on a lot of levels.

Ingredients:Water (Aqua Purificata) Purified, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Silk Amino Acids, Sodium PCA, Dimethicone, DMDM Hydantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Triethanolamine, Chamomile Flower Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Extract Methylparaben, Propylparaben, EDTA, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Extract.
Now the ingredients, it does do its job and feels good too (which is already a hard feat to accomplish for any product!). The main moisturizing ingredients are good picks and have very safe profiles, the PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propioinate see its profile here, which gives the product its good texture. Glycerin and the cetearyl alcohols are fatty alcohols that are commonly found in skincare products, and are not drying like other alcohols in products, like the SD-Alcohols. The only thing I'm not crazy about is all the citrus oils, they do impart a natural aroma to the product (and I do like these oils instead of artificial added fragrances) but for the best skincare, it'll probably be best without them.

If the guy in your life (or you!) has normal to oily skin, and is looking for a face lotion, this is a safe bet. It's is definitely hard (as you all know) to find a moisturizer for oily skin, and this does feel good. I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives, but $26.00 for a product that'll last a while is not so bad, and certainly priced better than a lot of products out there for women.

Of note:
There is a similar Oil Free lotion with SPF 15, for those of you looking for the added sun protection factor.

Overall Good Review

This is just my personal aesthetic opinion in using this product. This is not in any way a scientific evaluation. I have no financial/personal/professional association with Anthony Logistics skincare. Product tested was a friend's.
