A moisturizer for women like Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator costs $38.50 for 1.7 ounces, a whopping $22.65 an ounce. Clinique for Men’s Maximum Hydrator moisturizer costs just $32 for 1.7 ounces, or $18.82 an ounce. And Clinique for Men’s Moisturizing Lotion is even cheaper, $26 for 3.4 ounces or $7.65 an ounce. All have some of their own ingredients but quite a few of them overlap too.
If you are planning to try your guy’s moisturizer, just be careful, advises Rubin. “Face moisturizer I’d be more cautious about,” she says. “Just do a test for a day and make sure it agrees with your skin.”
