Before moisturizing, make sure you give your skin a proper cleanse. ERNEST SUPPLIES’ gel face wash skips the soap to keep your mug from drying out.

ERNEST SUPPLIES

Birchbox Breakdown

Your skin doesn’t ask that much from you: basic cleansing, a little moisture, and perhaps some protection from the elements. Give your complexion what it needs with this no-nonsense moisturizer. Packed with antioxidants and all-natural extracts, the matte formula neutralizes shine and deflects any harmful elements the environment lobs at your skin. The minty formula absorbs quickly enough that you’ll forget you’re wearing it.

How it Works

This formula is powered by natural ingredients like açai berry and green tea extracts, which spur skin’s regenerative properties, and cupuacu fruit extract, which is known for its ability to heal and hydrate. Vitamins A and E help preserve skin’s elasticity, ensuring a youthful payoff that will last for decades.

How to Use

Use twice daily after cleansing your face. With a small amount, massage evenly onto face and neck.

He likes it
Purchased

I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he really likes it. It has a mild scent, not overpowering. I will vouch for how soft it makes his face. A win!

Great product in a manly package

This moisturizer is great! It comes in a convenient "manly" looking packaging to allow for easy carrying. It keeps my face hydrated and gives a refreshing feeling after I apply it. I highly recommend it!

Great Moisturizer for True Men
Sampled

Ernest Supplies Protective Moisturizer surprised me. The packaging gave it a rugged type appearance and it didn't leave me feeling as if others were deducting man points when I pulled it out of my gym bag in the locker room. It went on smooth, no greasy feeling either. The smell was reminiscent of a pine tree air freshener, but it was subtle and better than smelling like Grandma Barbs flowery powder crud. There was a mild tingle at first, which I enjoyed and feel helped pep me up (I'm in the gym at 5am). The tingling dissipated quickly as did the smell and my face felt smooth and refreshed all day.

Promising result and fast delivery
Purchased

This is my second time ordering and this time I ordered TWO! I saw this product in a magazine--I forget which--and thought I'd try it.
It actually gives you a matte finish and it lasts all day. From experience, it's perfect for all weather/season, but especially pleasing during the sweaty months--because your face doesn't glow of sweat!.
The scent is pleasant and subtle. AND it's delivered super fast! Plus, the delivery is super fast, 3-4 days! How awesome is that!

Great Feeling Skin
SampledPurchased

This product was one of my first Birchbox Samples and it definitely left me excited for what else was ahead. This is my favorite moisturizer. Some have complained of the scent, but I find it mild and relaxing. Skin feels amazing after application.

Go To Daily Moisturizer
Purchased

This is my daily moisturizer unless I feel the need for something with SPF. Very light scent (if any at all), a little goes a long way. First application lasts all day.

Another great product from Ernest Supplies
Purchased

I had been using the Ernest Supplies cooling shave cream for a while and liked it so much that I thought I'd buy a full size lotion from Ernest Supplies--without getting a sample first.

I have now been using the Ernest Supplies protective matte moisturizer for a month or so: I love it. The aromas are fantastic and the refreshing tingle that I get when I apply the lotion feels great on my face. And even without all of the great extras, this stuff would still be great: it works well. I think that my skin looks much healthier since I started using this product.

I highly recommend this--and any other--Ernest Supplies product, even though I've only tried two of their products. I will be purchasing more.

Good but...
Purchased

I like that it's a matte finish, once you put it on it visually disappears quickly...however. It feels rather thick and heavy. I can feel it on my skin for a while, which i'm not used to.

Love the smell and how it reduces shine

I love love this product. I have tried many in my years and this one smells great and helps reduce shine. I just wish that it contained sunscreen.
