Men suffering from tight, sensitive skin are advised to avoid soap or products not formulated for sensitive skin.
Instead cleanse with a gentle formula, such as Men Expert Hydra Sensitive Soothing Foam Wash, (€8.99 ) recommends L’Oreal.
This is enriched with mineral salts, has a neutral pH and is alcohol and colourant free. In a US consumer blind test this wash ranked number one ahead of 10 best selling formulas.
