After testing face scrubs for years, I think I'm jaded. Or, maybe I just know what's best for me. There's the good, and then there's Anthony Logistics for Men Facial Scrub ($35). Anthony for Men is a popular brand in the men's grooming market, thanks to marketing and the moderately priced products. From the getgo, I couldn't get turned onto Anthony for Men due to its fragrance. Sure it's bright and bubbly and refreshing but it smells like candy or something you would buy your children. That's already a red flag for me.

I tried out Anthony Logistics for Men Facial Scrub only because it was in a gift bag I received over the weekend. Why not? I thought. It's been years. I was reunited with that very candy-like, fruity scent, which comes across very unnatural. Then there's the ingredients. Wow. The first couple of ingredients are pretty toxic, ranking in moderately hazard according to cosmetic database, including cocamidopropyl betaine, propylene glycol, treithanolamine. There's also some parabens that I could do without.

The good news is that it does contain beneficial ingredients, like algae extract, which helps prevent wrinkles and purifies. There's also aloe vera leaf juice, which, as you know, heals and calms and moisturizes. There's a smatter of essential oils (grapefruit, mandarin) which help tone but there's nothing here that truly deeply exfoliates and offers long-term benefits. The beads are pretty large (there's finely ground Bora Bora sand - very little - to counteract that), which help remove the dead skin cells and brighten the complexion but it just felt like it wasn't doing the job. It did exfoliate but I didn't feel like I got a true, deep-down, pore-cleansing exfoliation. And I was scared off by the chemicals. For a man on a budget, it's fit, but for a man who's serious about getting a good facial scrub, there are better ones on the market.
