In this Counterman Review post, I will show you why men’s products are just as harmful as women’s, lowering sperm count, testosterone and contributing to infertility, as well as what to easily do about it.

Counterman Review

Did you know that most personal care products for men are just as harmful as women’s? The conversation about phthalates and other contaminants typically revolves around women’s hormones, but unfortunately these harmful ingredients have a similar effect on men.

Phthalates are commonly found hidden under the term ‘fragrance’ on any ingredient list. Increased levels of phthalates in a man’s system causes lower testosterone levels and decreased sperm count. This is detrimental to this reproduction capabilities as well as their overall health. Even a recent article from the popular mens magazine, GQ (see here) recently reported such findings.

Ingredients to watch out for:

  • Fragrance
  • Parabens (look for paraben in the word: methylparaben, propylparaben, isoparaben or butylparaben)
  • Triclosan
  • Sulfates (look for: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Myreth Sulfate)

Counterman Review, Our personal experience:

When Counterman launched, I bought two sets. One for our home and one to send out with family members and friends to test drive for me, since I don’t plan on wearing aftershave any time soon 😉

Counterman Daily Exfoliating Cleanser: My husband  loves how his skin felt after using this cleanser and how it “removed the all the dry skin and gunk.” My husband leaves this one in the shower for evenings. You can grab it here .

Counterman Clarifying Toner Pads: These have become my husbands go to and one of his top three from the entire line. They shrink pores, remove excess oil and dirt and protect from everyday environmental stress. This is my husbands go to am cleanser and refresher. Grab them here.

Counterman Oil-Free Face Lotion: Lightweight and non-greasy, this daily moisturizer absorbs quickly and boosts hydration. Featuring Sequoia Stem Cell Complex, oil-controlling ingredients, and taurine, it helps prevent shine, improve skin’s resiliency, and protect from everyday environmental stress. My husband is not big on lotions but my male clients who do already  wear face lotion daily love it! Grab it here.

Counterman Smoothing Shave Cream: Ok, my husband and I both love this one (thank goodness we got two!) A little goes a long way with this concentrated formula.  I suggest using a shave brush because you will use even less product. Grab the cream here.

Counterman Cooling Aftershave Tonic: This one is probably my husbands favorite. After banning cologne from our home years ago, my husband is loving having something to smell good again. His skin is pretty sensitive and he finds this very calming after shaving! Grab it here.

Counterman Conditioning Beard Oil: This has a fresh woodsy scent from bergamot and vetiver essential oils and can be used as a leave in conditioner that also protects from environmental stress. This leave skin hydrated and less itchy. The feedback I received was after using this men didn’t realize how much they were itching their beards! Grab it here.

Counterman Charcoal Body Bar: “Irish spring meets the spa without drying my skin.”Formulated with charcoal, coconut oil, and Sequoia Stem Cell Complex, this invigorating body bar produces a creamy lather to wash away impurities and protect skin from everyday stress. A blend of natural citrus, mint, rosemary, and cedarwood oils give this daily soap it’s refreshing scent. Grab it here.

Counterman Energizing Charcoal Body Wash: Like the bar, this one pulls out impurities, smells great and leaves skin hydrated and protected against environmental stress. My husband preferred this to the bar, which was surprising as he’s normally a bar user. Grab it here.

Counterman shave regimen

I didn’t want to end this Counterman Review without giving you some practical steps to clean up the rest of your man’s routine….

5 simple swaps to help your guy clean his routine: 

1. Deodorant: swap from old spice to Primally Pure Charcoal (my husband says it works better than any deodorant he’s ever used)

2. Shaving Cream: swap from that generic brand which contains fragrance, sulfates and BHT to Beautycounters new concentrated formula (a little goes a long long way!) Grab the cream here

3. Soap or body wash: typical soap contains sulfates, fragrance and more. Swap to Beautycounters new charcoal body bar or wash (my husband loves the wash!)

4.Toothpaste & floss: swap to a safer fluoride free toothpaste and a Teflon free floss (yes, Teflon is found in floss and linked to Alzheimer’s) Shop paste here and floss here

5. Cologne or aftershave: contains toxic phthalates and fragrance which mes with hormones and man parts. My hubby is over the moon to have a safe aftershave again and is using this one from the new Counterman line.
