Beast Mode in a Bottle

We Tested and Discovered the Best Anti-Aging Moisturizers for Men for 2024

Sadly, as men, we're often told that aging means wisdom and experience. But those fine lines and wrinkles aren’t exactly exciting. I’ve had crow’s feet and frown lines since my early 20s, along with dry, scaly skin. And it bothers me, especially in the summer heat!

I’ve been to the derma, tried all the creams, but nothing. So, I researched better, more efficient alternatives to smooth my wrinkles and hydrate my skin without the greasy feeling (which I hate)

Recently, more brands have released moisturizers that hydrate and repair signs of aging, perfect for summer.

I had to try them and put my best product reviewers to the test to find the top anti-aging moisturizers that don’t require expensive dermatologist visits or complicated routines.

Let’s get started…


Effectiveness: 95%

Safety: 100%

Price: $

Overall: A+

This is by far our favorite anti-aging moisturizer for repairing dull, dry, and aging skin. Mane’s Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer uses an innovative CellRevive™ technology that allows the formula to travel beneath the skin’s surface and restore youthful cells, transforming the skin from dull and damaged to vibrant and healthy. One of the things we enjoyed most about Mane’s is how it doesn’t look or feel complicated. It’s a moisturizer that packs a punch of anti-aging technology, and to us guys, we love the no-fuss approach here. We found out about Mane when they offered us a secret link for 50% off. We tried it for three weeks, incorporating it into our own daily routines. The majority of our reviewers noticed a significant improvement in skin health and texture, with lines visibly reduced. This really is our top recommendation, and encourage anyone who wants a more youthful appearance to order this immediately!

By far, Mane’s Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer is the most effective anti-aging moisturizer for men on the market.

2. IOPE Anti Aging Emulsion for Men

Effectiveness: 85%

Safety: 90%

Price: $$$

Overall Value: B

Known for a wide range of male skincare products, this emulsion from IOPE was a popular choice when we were building our list. The lightweight formula provides intense nighttime repair for tired or damaged skin and hydrates quite well. However, some of our reviewers complained about how they developed acne as they tested it, and it didn’t pair well with those who have oily skin. Needless to say, it’s a nice product to try but be cautious if it’ll work on your specific skin type.

3. Pure Research Men's Face Cream Moisturizer

Effectiveness: 80%

Safety: 85%

Price: $$

Overall Value: B

We’ve heard some good news about Pure Research, so we decided to add this to our list and see what all the fuss was all about. While it was extremely moisturizing, most of us just didn’t see a difference in terms of helping with age spots and fine lines. For some of us, it also felt quite heavy to wear and it got really greasy throughout the day. If your skin is really dry, this could be worth a shot.

4.  FJALLUFT Advanced Anti-Aging Retinol Cream for Face

Effectiveness: 75%

Safety: 80%

Price: $$

Overall Value: C

This one was designed for both men and women. And curious to see what results it’ll give us, we decided to include this in our list. Its main components include retinol and collagen, which are tried and true ingredients for reversing wrinkles and aging skin. However, retinol, being a powerful ingredient, doesn’t really suit everyone’s skin type. A lot of us got drier skin than when we started. Overall, this one just doesn’t compare well with Mane and the rest. 

5. REMEDIAL PAX Collagen Cream for Face

Effectiveness: 75%

Safety: 75%

Price: $$

Overall Value: C

This one is packs a ton of anti-aging elements, including collagen, retinol, and peptides. While we liked how it really hydrates and leaves no greasy feeling, it doesn’t really help tighten the skin or eliminate wrinkles unlike Mane’s. Some of us tried to stick with it for a few more weeks just to see a difference, but sadly it didn’t deliver. However, if you’re only looking for a lightweight moisturizer, this would be a good option.


While we believe we recommended some great moisturizers to help hydrate, depuff, smooth wrinkles, and restore a more youthful complexion, we believe Mane’s Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer is the absolute best option. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Mark Herring who helped create the rankings list and how he discovered the greatness that is Mane.

Personally, I’m a bit of an anti-product guy. Bar of soap in the shower and some toothpaste. My girlfriend only recently pushed sunscreen on me, haha. It’s not that I don’t believe in any of the stuff (hell, I research and write about it all the time). I just never thought I needed most of it. My skin is fairly clear and never had many issues with acne or anything like that. That said, the one thing that always bothered me was my dry, dull-looking skin and fine lines. It runs in my family, my dad and brothers all had wrinkles early on, making us look older and fatigued than we actually are.

So when I was put on assignment to find some amazing anti-aging moisturizers, I was happy to test some things out. Unfortunately, not a lot made the cut. Too many products promising instant smoothing and wrinkle-free skin. It wasn’t happening. And worse, I noticed a lot had strong chemicals that were drying out my skin, making my fine lines more prominent.

I sort’ve gave up.

But then I noticed my best friend, who I trust with my life, started to look a lot younger. Last time I remembered he had some pretty bad dry patches and wrinkles around his eyes, and he would often wear glasses even though his eyes were in perfect condition.

I asked him what was up and he shot out of his chair and grabbed Mane’s Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer. He said he tried a few things but that Mane was the only brand that he felt like actually delivered. I was skeptical, but when he showed me a photo from like 2 months ago, I was blown away. His skin looked so much younger, smoother, and fine lines were definitely a lot less visible.

I asked him to let me borrow his Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer, but instead he told me to buy my own like a real adult LOL. Luckily he gave me a secret link to get 50% off. So I ordered two immediately.


I received the package two days later and used as instructed. Cleanse and apply an even layer, focusing on problem areas, and allowing it to fully absorb.

Obviously, I was expecting to see my face look younger and my wrinkles gone. My skin definitely felt and looked more hydrated immediately. However, I had to resist my judgment, knowing that these products need consistent use for at least four weeks before noticeable results. 

For now, let me share what makes the Mane Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer work, and why it’s our top choice.


It’s quite simple, just as our bodies get weak when we get older, our skin follows a similar pattern. From my research and testing, I learned that the key is to make sure that our skin receives the right nutrients that will initiate a rejuvenation process on a cellular level. While yes, it doesn’t happen overnight. But Mane’s Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer is formulated to work fast.

PHASE 1: Skin Nourishment

Key ingredients like Sea Silt Extract deeply penetrate the skin to hydrate, while plant stem cells repair and revitalize the skin's surface.

PHASE 2: Moisture Balance

Squalane and Glycerin in the formula work to balance your skin's natural oils, providing hydration without leaving a greasy residue. This phase ensures your skin retains natural moisture, promoting a healthy, matte appearance.

PHASE 3: Skin Protection and Revitalization

Oat Kernel Extract and other nurturing components soothe and protect the skin. This final phase helps fortify the skin's natural barrier, leaving it resilient against environmental stressors and looking visibly rejuvenated.

This process, along with the right combination of ingredients, kickstarts our skin’s transformation. Some of those essential ingredients include:

Buddleja Davidii Meristem Cell Culture

A potent plant stem cell extract that rejuvenates and repairs skin, protecting against environmental aging factors.

Sea Silt Extract

A rare and powerful ingredient, Sea Silt Extract deeply nourishes and revitalizes the skin, enhancing its natural repair processes and leaving a rejuvenated, youthful complexion.


A natural hydrator known for mimicking the skin's own moisture, Squalene balances oil production while providing intense hydration, perfect for achieving that elusive non-greasy matte finish.


So, finally, after just 3 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! My skin feels so hydrated and my lines, bags, and blemishes are practically gone. Plus, it made my skin feel softer, smoother, and firmer. I looked back at some photos a couple of months back, and I’m wowed by how great (and younger) I look and feel now.

The Mane Skin Guard Stem Cell Moisturizer is officially a permanent part of my daily routine. And it should be in yours, too!

    I prefer no non-sense skincare. I apply this every morning and then sunscreen and I’m done. Works well!
