If you’re looking for a new men’s grooming line to try this holiday season, check out Cardon. Recently launched in May, the brand utilizes advanced Korean research and development to produce a high-quality product at an attainable price.

The brand, which has found success in its cactus-infused 2-in-1 Daily SPF & Moisturizer, has debuted a new limited-edition gift set, retailing for $55, featuring a preview of its two new products, which will launch individually in January 2020. The new products include a Clay Purifying Cleaners and a 3-in-1 Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizer.

The Clay Purifying Cleanser provides heavy-duty cleansing power without drying the skin. Clay has 4-times the absorption power of charcoal and ionizes when mixed with water to hydrate the skin. Helping to control sebum and balance oil levels all without irritating the skin. In addition to three types of clay (Kaolin, Bentonite, and Moroccan Lava), the product features Centella Asiatica, a plant-derived antioxidant, and cactus extract.

Repairing, pollutant fighting, and superbly moisturizing, the 3-in-1 Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizer features Rose Hip Oil (from the fruit of wildrose and containing a large amount of vitamins A, C, D & E, as well as various minerals to enhance the antioxidant effect on the skin), Centella Asiatica, Molokhia Leaf and cactus extract. And, rounding out the gift set is Cardon’s 2-in-1 Daily SPF & Moisturizer.

Each product features cactus extract, an ingredient known for its soothing and hydrating properties. It also provides a firming effect on UV-treated skin, and has a long history of being used for its healing properties dating back to the Aztecs using it to treat sunburned skin. Cardon chose this ingredient specially for male-focused products as men often experience skin irritation and redness from shaving. All Cardon products are created with no sulfate, phthalates, formaldehyde, siloxanes, SLES, SLS, ALS, PEGs, petrolatum, parabens, or silicone, and are made cruelty-free.
