Scrubbing The Day Away: Comparing Three Axe Facial Cleansers

I haven't had the easiest time getting into the Axe line of men's beauty products. Let's face it. Early on, they branded themselves as a knock-off fragrance company with cheesy ads that were oftentimes funny, but didn't do much to inspire legitimate consumer confidence outside of that arena. As their product line has increased, though, that's exactly what they are asking as they have joined the fight in getting your dollars in a wide array of new divisions such as hair care, deodorant, facial cleansing, shaving and everything in between. Gone are the cartoon packages and the suggestive taglines for a sleek new re-brand. I had the chance to do a side-by-side comparison on three of their new facial cleansers and I was pleasantly surprised, for the most part. Axe Chilled Cooling Face Wash (4 1/2 stars): I love the crisp cool feeling of a good wash, something you can feel in a slight tingle. That is what refreshes me and convinces me that a product has really gotten into my skin. Truthfully, I might have expected a more pronounced and bracing menthol feeling. But that's more of a personal preference. This does exactly what it promises and leaves a nice residual clean feeling. Axe Boost Energizing Face Wash (3 stars): This one was the hardest sell for me as it's for 'tired" skin. I don't even know what that means! In comparison to the Cooling Wash, however, I liked it considerably less. This tends to have a more distinct odor, more than I typically like when it comes to facial products. While it seemed to clean just fine, it is simply not something that might inspire me to seek it out in a store. Axe Controil Oily Skin Face Scrub (4 Stars): I tend to have oily skin, but probably a little less so as I've gotten older. Still, I do a cleansing regimen several times a week. I tend to believe in harsh and astringent treatments to feel the burn, so I was a bit skeptical of this product. It doesn't have an overpowering scent (which is a plus in my book) and goes on relatively smooth and washes off easily. While you can feel the clean and tightness, it's not the strongest product on the market. But it does seem to work without completely sending you over to the dry side. Solid enough. KGHarris, 3/13.

Helps keep oil away

As a teen I developed very oily skin that has pretty much stayed with me to the present (I'm now in my mid-30's) While this scrub is targeted to teen guys, I figured that since my skin is about as oily as my teenage son's, I would give this a try. The scent is ok, and thankfully it is not as strong/obnoxious as some Axe products. The texture of the scrub is not too rough, but it is substantial enough that I feel like the cleanser is actually scrubbing, instead of merely washing my face. After using this product for a week I noticed that my skin did seem to stay "drier" longer, before my nose and forehead became "shiny." My son also used this product, and not only did his skin seem less oily, after about 1 week there was noticeable improvement in his breakouts. Overall, this seems to be a good product, and with use over time, it continues to control oil as well as help clear up breakouts.

Smooth, Refreshed Skin

This is one of those Axe products you really have to try for yourself to truly understand just how good it is. Axe Oily Skin Face Scrub has a light refreshing fragrance that is bright and invigorating. The face scrub is incredibly easy on the skin, it doesn't irritate my face at all. What it does do is clean my face, leaving it feeling refreshed and silky smooth to the touch. A very small amount of this product goes an incredibly long way. A small drop half the size of a pea is enough to lather an entire face. The face scrub rinses clean and doesn't leave any sticky feeling residue. All you feel after using it is really soft, smooth skin and a refreshed, clean feeling.

I'm glad that Axe expanded into fash washes, creams, and lotions.

This scrub from Axe does a great job at reducing the oil on my skin without drying it out. I used to think that oily skin was the opposite end of a spectrum from dry skin, but in reality it is two separate conditions. Some face soaps take all the oil out of my skin, leaving it dry and prone to problems. This Scrub from Axe gets the oils off my skin, and out of the pores, but does dry my skin out. I recommend that you give this scrub a try. It works well.

Good.

I have oily skin and have tried variety of facial cleanser including more expensive ones (neutrogena, kiehl, clean and clear). So far, this was what I was looking for. It pulls out oils from my face and keep it clean, which suits my purpose. I always use moisturizer afterwards so that my skin stays not too dry. I would strongly recommend this product for men with oily skin. Good price and does the job.

Boosted, Chilled, "Controiled" & Shielded!

Axe has several new facial scrub products.I apologize for any confusion up front, but because I got them together, my review on each product appears under the individual product lines, so I have attempted to sum up them up as one review. The product lines are Chilled, Boost, Controil, and Shield. I got all of them and think they all do a good job. I got the first three as 5 ounce tubes, while Shield comes in a 4.2 ounce can. I have used the products for a few weeks, one each week or so. These are decent product lines. I listed the ingredients for all four at the bottom of the review, in case you want to compare them. They are similar. Chilled, of course, has menthol to provide an "icy" sensation. Many of the seed extracts are the same across the four products. The face washes have several good products up front. I would prefer a little less on the chemicals and dye toward the end of the ingredient list. With the Chilled product, it does give a icy effect, though nowhere as noticeable as on the other Chilled products (shaving gel and aftershave). While all three contain menthol, I'm assuming there may be a little less in this product. In any event, I did notice less of the icy effect, which is not a bad thing. I am looking for that sensation more from a shaving gel or a post-shave product than I am a facial scrub. The Controil does work with oily skin, but I didn't notice it working any better than Boost. Their contents are similar so I was not surprised. I felt my skin felt a little more dried out with Controil and Boost than with Chilled or Shield, not bad and not that it looked drier, but it felt drier. That could be the "synthetic wax" that is an ingredient in Controil and Boost, not sure. Scent wise, I didn't notice too much scent in any of the products, although I think there is a woody, pleasant scent to Shield. Nothing that lingers though. I found Shield left my skin feeling the most refreshed. Possibly because it does not contain Acrylates Copolymer as an ingredient. As far as Boost, I didn't notice any difference in it making my face feel more "energized." I didn't expect it to, assuming that is just advertising. But just in case you are expecting a booste or having your skin feel energized....probably not. Of the four, I preferred Chilled and Shield over the other two. I feel they cleaned my skin, left it looking nice but not oily, nor dried out. I think all four of these are good products. If you have less oily skin, I would go with Chilled or Shield. If your skin is more sensitive, I would use Shield. If your skin is more oily I would choose the Boost or Controil.

Terrific, more 'mature' fragrance and so refreshing!

Yesterday my husband said to me, "Honey, tonight you're goin' to get "AXE'd"!" And I chuckled and replied--because I knew exactly what he meant by that promise, "Well, that's cool!" In all seriousness though, he had already cracked the lids on this AXE Chilled face wash, the Chilled shave gel, and the Chilled hydrating/after-shave gel and was looking forward to an exhilarating experience. I was too: This "Chilled" fragrance does not come across like a good many of the AXE fragrances. The "Chilled" is a major step away from the sweet and cloying smell of most of the other AXE products we had sampled in the past. The fragrances each of us wear are important to both of us: If either of us don't like a fragrance, it doesn't get worn. We both agree: "Chilled" is a keeper. I think the fragrance will appeal to all age groups. The refreshing and cooling effect will be great in the summertime, and I can just picture smiles and sighs of contentment using it on hot summer nights while preparing to head out for some fun. Regarding the face wash in particular: My husband is not used to using a face wash: Whatever bath gel is there on the shower shelf, that is what he would put on his face. So, now, in getting this face gel for him, I've started something: He says it feels so good and was so refreshing and his skin feels so nice that he wants to keep using it. "Can I use it every day?", he asks me. "Well, sure you can! Twice a day! As often as you wash your face, you crazy guy! Use this one up and I'll get you another one!"

Boost, Chilled and Shield: A product for every type of skin

I'm a bit too old for the Axe revolution but I was game for trying three of their face products to see if it was better than my standard regimen of bar soap, shampoo and shaving gel. I tried Chilled,Boost,Shield consecutively over a two-week period. I've posted a photo that shows the difference in the three face products. Most noticeably, Shield is a foam product while both Chilled and Boost are gels. Each face wash comes with its own set of recommendations: Chilled is blue and for normal skin, Boost is red and for tired skin and Shield is white and for sensitive or dry skin. I'm not sure what you're supposed to do if you have tired, oily skin or tired, dry skin, or just normal skin that a bit tired. I don't think there's as much difference between the products as Axe would have you believe. I enjoyed trying each product but don't see myself becoming regular users of any of them. I do see the appeal for younger men though as each face product has its own scent and branding. Chilled is for normal skin (that enjoys a big dose of menthol) * Cooling face wash refreshes your skin * Moisturizing ingredients leaves your skin feeling fresh and energized * Light, minty fragrance * Fights dirt and oil * Can be used with other Axe Face products for a complete regimen Boost is for tired skin (that needs a good scrubbing) * Invigorating face wash gives you a boost of energy * Micro-beads stimulate and revitalize your skin * Includes soothing ingredients for moisturizing * Subtle, energizing scent Shield is for sensitive and dry skin (and people who equate foam with comfort) * Gentle face wash ideal for sensitive skin * Moisturizing ingredients leave your skin feeling fresh and energized * Calming, vanilla scent * Cleansing formula fights dirt and oil * Can be used with other Axe Face products for a complete cleansing regimen In summary, I might pick up one of these Axe face wash products for my shaving kit if I was unsure what soap I might encounter on my trip. For day-to-day use, I'm less likely to switch my from standard regimen of bar soap, shampoo and shaving gel.

Your wife will like this too

My husband tends to use whatever facial soap I happen to have on hand, but is never really happy with the way some of the products make his skin feel (or the smell). But he hasn't been too interested in any of the men's facial products either. He likes the Axe brand of deodorant, so I thought we'd give this a try. Having used this for a couple of weeks he says that this is one facial soap that he will continue to use. It smells good--there's none of the usual Axe heavy perfume. More importantly it creates suds easily and feels like it is doing what it claims, which is reducing the oily feel on his skin. His skin is left feeling clean, dry, and soft and it continues to feel good. I second this! I started using it because I liked the light scent better than the "woman's" product I was using--and it left my oily skin feeling soft and not dry. My husband says I have to buy more of this product since I keep using it too. It's a win.
