Male Order: AHAVA Protective Moisturizing Fluid SPF 15
While several of the products were sublime on my skin (most specifically the body lotion), I was a little ambivalent on the AHAVA Protective Moisturizing Fluid ($32) for men. It was a rich substance that had a very clean, fresh scent, SPF 15 and anti-aging elements. But taking a look at the ingredients, the product scored pretty high with chemicals (rule of thumb for novice ingredient readers: the more you can't pronounce an ingredient on the label, the less "friendly" it may be for your skin, as I learned years ago), and scored pretty low on the goodies (like the gingko and gingseng).
If there's anything to redeem the wealth of long-winded ingredient names is the Dead Sea water. Hopefully it's not as gimmicky as one would take it to be. So I didn't discount it altogether. There are sunscreen agents, which are preventative of premature aging (like zinc oxide).
