Six Reasons Guys Are Spending More Money on Skincare

According to a new study by NPD, men's skincare sales jumped six percent in the first half of 2012 compared to the first half of 2011. And unlike the men's clothing market—where as much as fifty percent of purchases are made by women—70 percent of men are shopping for their own moisturizers, toners and exfoliators.

Especially if they're buying one of the products below, whose steamlined packinging and highly-concentrated, no-frills formulas give women plenty of reasons to borrow from the boys.
