One product in particular that I recommend is the Verdon Outdoor Moisturizers SPF 30 ($32.00 1.7 fl. oz.). The green, pump tube has a manly, grey pump top and dispenses an SPF 30 product infused with that lovely, Verdon scent. The product is water resistant, but now that the FDA has changed the guidelines, I can say it protects in a broad spectrum UVA/UVB way, but it’s not waterproof (just water-resistant). Still, the product is non-greasy, smell great, is fast and clean to apply, and if this product doesn’t get him to protect his skin, I can’t imagine what will! It’s also good for travel. The active ingredients in this product are: 10% Octocrylene; 4.3% Titanium Dioxide; 7.5 % Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnimate/Octinoxate; and (for another tongue-twisting active), there’s Phenylbenzamidazole Sulfonic Acidensulzone.
When he’s ready to wash off sand, sea and sun lotion, treat him to the Verdon Face Wash $20.00 5.1 fl. oz. The deep sea-green bottle has a grey, flip-top dispensing one of the most pleasant face washes I (and my male reviewer) have ever experienced. It has purifying peppermint essential oil, moisturizing sea-buckthorn water, genepi extract and spring water (to protect his skin), and a nicely-foaming formula that is gentle but also removes excess sebum and impurities. The bonus for him is that without any work, his skin will be clean, clear, and matte. It’s hard to beat that!
I and my reviewer didn’t try the other Verdon-scented products, but hey, they’re L’Occitane quality. You can’t help but love them. Get Verdon items at L’Occitane stores or online
