It is often said that the best skincare products on the market are the ones that you'll actually use. And in an industry worth $30 billion and counting, there's an awful lot of noise to cut through.

When MadeMan founder Jeremy Gardner pivoted from the world of cryptocurrency and embarked on the journey that would become MadeMen, he was dissatisfied with the state of his skin but disillusioned by the sheer number of products out there. His solution? Invent something game-changing that would encourage men to follow a daily skincare regimen that took no more effort than brushing their teeth, shaving their face, or applying deodorant. Gardner's quest for the perfect product took about 18 months in total, and he teamed up with top dermatologist Dr. Loretta Ciraldo who helped him formulate MadeMan's flagship products.

At the core of MadeMen is the truth that there are only a handful of critical parts that go into an effective, comprehensive skincare regimen: cleansing, moisturization, anti-aging, anti-inflammation, pollution protection, and harmful ray reduction. The products that Gardner and Ciraldo arrived at — in addition to being easy, accessible, and affordable — are certified Vegan, Cruelty-Free, and Made in America. In addition, all the packing is recyclable and all the bottles last two months to help cut down on waste and shipping. For less than $2 a day, Gardner has made it possible for regular men everywhere to integrate a complete skincare routine in just two minutes a day, with only two products.

The first product in the MadeMan routine is a two-in-one cleanser and shave gel called The Resetter. This patented formula combines eucalyptus essential oil with soap bark — a natural foaming agent — to deliver a smooth shave and deep clean without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Approved for all skin types, The Resetter does so much more than just cleanse the skin. Not only is it capable of reducing puffiness and blemishes, but it reinforces skin's elasticity, eliminates razor burn and ingrown hairs, and removes impurities from your pores. It also contains glycerin-infused coconut oil for moisturization and antioxidant protection in addition to sunflower seed oil, a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient that bolsters the skin barrier while supporting the skin's ability to fend off pollution. In short, it's so much more than a simple cleanser.

Once your skin is clean, next comes The Refresher, the brand's all-in-one hero moisturizer that delivers every part of a proactive skincare routine in one powerful product. In addition to moisturizing and hydrating the skin, The Refresher harnesses the power of chicory root which lifts and tightens the skin by increasing collagen production, something that all of us need a healthy dose of as our own collagen production begins to slow. It also includes vitamin C, a wonder antioxidant that brightens the skin while mitigating sun damage and reducing pigmentation, along with castor seed oil which is chock full of natural fatty acids to prevent acne while restoring the natural moisture balance of your skin. Incredibly, The Refresher also includes something we could all use more of: mica coated in titanium dioxide, which shields your skin from the damaging blue light emitted by your devices.

"I created this elegant solution due to my inability to follow the complicated routines required by other men's brand," said Gardner. "The Re(Set) is everything you need for a proactive skincare regimen in two simple, high quality solutions."

Whether you're looking to level up your own skincare game or give that special man in your life a gift that will give him a glowing complexion all year long, MadeMan has got you covered. As founder Jeremy Gardner said, it is never too late to turn your life around and strive towards becoming a Made Man.
