Looking for Valentine's Day present ideas to treat the special guy in your life? At Eminence Organics, we've compiled a list of Valentine’s Day presents in our gift guide, featuring our best skin care for men. Whether the man in your life lives at the gym, loves nature or is sensitive inside and out, he is sure to appreciate these Eminence Organic Skin Care treats.
1. The Gym Junkie
The gym junkie loves a good sweat and eats clean. Focused on being healthy from the inside out, he’ll want to keep his skin in great shape too. Two of our best selling products, our Stone Crop Gel Wash and Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, are sure to give his skin a healthy workout.
Like other succulents, stone crop is a powerhouse in skin care. This classic ingredient brightens the look of skin, replenishes moisture and minimizes redness due to dryness. With its fresh scent, Stone Crop Gel Wash will be a Valentine’s Day special gift that's a welcome addition to his wellness routine. This gentle cleanser washes away impurities and minimizes the appearance of breakouts while deeply hydrating a parched complexion.
For a deep scrub, pair the Stone Crop Gel Wash with another best seller:Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. This powder exfoliant packs a powerful punch, using rhubarb to fight the look of wrinkles and salicylic acid (from strawberries) to deep clean pores which can be blocked by impurities and sweats at the gym. Then you can gift our Must Have Minis Starter Kit for a pint-sized version of this cleansing duo - the perfect size to throw in his gym bag to refresh the skin!
More light and healthy treats? Our Firm Skin Acai Masque is a fruitilicious delight, a concentrated boost of vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients which helps his skin appear refreshed and revitalized. Or for a post-workout option, the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque makes a perfect cooling mask.
For post-workout, the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque makes for a perfect cooling mask. Then you can gift our Must Have Minis Starter Kit for a pint-sized version of this cleansing duo - the perfect size to throw in his gym bag to refresh the skin!
2. The Outdoor Adventure Seeker
Whether hiking, camping or mountain biking, the outdoor adventure seeker is always up for a new excursion. However, exposure to the elements can leave his skin feeling irritated and congested. Without proper care and protection from environmental stressors, sweat and heat may trap bacteria and cause breakouts, while fine lines and wrinkles set in, lending a more weathered than worldly appearance.
Charcoal Exfoliating Gel Cleanser is his secret new skin care weapon. Charcoal draws out oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores for a clearer complexion. Blue matcha is rich in antioxidants to improve the visible signs of aging and increases the appearance of the skin’s vitality.
Follow up with a layer of Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 40. This moisturizer is the perfect non cheesy Valentine’s day gift for him as it provides a Youth Shield Antioxidant Complex and SPF 40 all mineral protection to defend against the elements and sun. Microencapsulated tea tree oil minimizes the look of breakouts while zinc oxide provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Plus, he’ll love its refreshingly cool sensation on his skin.
Round out his sun care routine with our Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator For Face & Body. Perfect after a day outdoors, this lightweight moisturizer thoroughly hydrates skin without feeling heavy or greasy. Packaged in a convenient tube format, your man can easily pack and apply the hydrator while he’s on the go.
3. The Sensitive Guy With Sensitive Skin
The sensitive guy always has your back. Whether he’s coming up with special ways to make you smile, remembering your favorite snack or just being your shoulder to lean on, this guy is always ready to listen and support.
If his skin is as sensitive as he is, help him create a soothing men’s skin care routine. The Calm Skin Starter Set includes a travel-sized cleanser, moisturizer, mask and serum from our award-winning Calm Skin collection. Each skin care product contains gentle chamomile to balance his complexion and calm redness due to dryness.
To fully prep his skin for maximum benefit, spoil your sensitive guy with a Calm Skin Chamomile Exfoliating Peel. Containing lactic and mandelic acid to gently exfoliate, this relaxing treatment will help soothe dryness, as well as deeply hydrate the skin.
4. The Beard Care Expert
Does your guy suffer from beard itch? Dryness (especially in winter) is the main cause of flaky skin (also known as beardruff) and an itchy complexion. Add a beard oil to your guy’s grooming routine to keep his beard soft and his skin smooth.
Wildflower Ultralight Oil is a fast-absorbing, multipurpose dry oil that tames unruly facial hair and softens dry skin. This gift for him (and you!) will ensure a silky smooth beard and comforted complexion away from dryness.
5. The Hard-To-Shop-For Hubby
For the man who has everything, it can be nearly impossible to find the perfect Valentine's gift for him. The hard-to-shop-for hubby is always interested in the best of the best, so why not introduce him to three Eminence Organics staples?
We recommend our Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant. This unique powder-to-foam exfoliant is infused with potent microgreens, stone crop and rice flour with adzuki powder. He’ll get a kick out of its light fizzing action that invigorates and revitalizes the skin.
Like the Adventure Seeker, your hard-to-shop-for guy will love the Charcoal Exfoliating Gel Cleanser. This exfoliating gel wash improves skin health by drawing out oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores.
He may have everything and want nothing, but can he turn down the rich aromas of our Chocolate Mousse Hydration Masque? This hydrating mask will remind him of a delicious, decadent chocolate treat (one that’s kind to your waistline). After all, who can resist a little indulgence on Valentine’s Day?
6. The New Dad
The new dad has a new priority: his little one. This hands-on father wants only the best for his growing family, and that includes natural, organic skin care. Treat him to the best skin care for dad and baby with these gentle Eminence Organics picks. If he’s lacking sleep thanks to dad duties, the Cucumber Eye Gel gets rid of puffy eyes. Soothing cucumber and wild hops rejuvenate the delicate skin around the eye area, while shea butter and evening primrose oil moisturize and soften the appearance of the skin.
Stone Crop Body Lotion is the perfect moisturizing treatment for babies and first-time fathers. Infused with healing and hydrating stone crop, this body lotion gently soothes and smooths dry skin. Expert tip: Add a few drops of Apricot Body Oil for additional moisture. Its skin-softening ingredients and sweet scent are the perfect combination for dad and baby naptime.
Please note, as with any skin care product, we encourage you to consult with your pediatrician or medical professional before adding new products to your baby's skin care routine.
Lastly, the Mangosteen Body Lotion is an effective option if your partner has rougher, dry skin across the body. Formulated with a unique Lactic Acid Complex, this lightweight formula gently resurfaces new skin to reveal bright, radiant skin.
