Lemon extracts and perlite in this helps to restore the skin original complexion. It keeps the oil away for up to 5 hours and no more than that. I guess this is quite good for men with oily skin. It has SPF as well but the amount is a bit less. Hence, I suggest going for a non oily skin men’s sunscreen that can keep the sun damage away.

2. Nivea Men Dark Spot Reduction Moisturizer

Nivea Men Dark Spot Reduction Moisturizer


Nivea makes some of the best skin products for men like their men’s deodorants. Nivea in fact makes some cult classic products for both men and women. I like their Nivea dark spot reduction skin cream.  Nivea Men Dark spot reduction Moisturizer is a facial skin moisturizer that is targeted to lighten those terrible dark spots and black spots on the face. So, we cannot call this as a fairness moisturizer since there is a different one for that but this is the one that works on the dark spots. Dark spots can make the skin appear patchy and uneven. Facial moisturizer that can help lighten that will surely make the skin tone lighter too. This also has SPF 30 which aids in the sun damage protection. Vitamin C as the major ingredients helps to boost the skin lightening. You can also try Nivea dark spot face wash to boost the effects, but that is not mandatory you see! The Whitanat vita complex is a mixture of 10 nutrients and 10 times effect better than Vitamin C in skin whitening and dark spot removal. Nivea Men Dark spot reduction moisturizer is suitable for all skin.

Key Ingredients: Whitanat, Vitamin C, Licorice, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, Ginseng, Ginkgo,Magnesium, Glyceryl Glucoside

3. L’Oreal Paris Men Expert White Activ Whitening Moisturizing Fluid


L’Oreal Paris Men Expert White Activ Whitening Moisturizing Fluid is a moisturizer that can help you gain a good skin by eliminating the darkness and dark spots on the skin. But what entices is the formula of this fluid. By fluid it means a lotion like texture but not necessarily a serum like. I have used this and I noticed that this makes the skin a tad greasy especially when the weather is hot and humid like in summers. It is more suitable for the men who have dry to normal skin as this doe give moisturization and dewiness to the skin. It also comes with SPF 20 which is okay for everyday use. This means that if you are wearing this fairness fluid for men then you can skip the sunscreen otherwise, it is not recommended that you leave the house without using sunscreen.

4. Pond’s Men Energy Recharge Brightening Gel Moisturizer

Pond's Men Energy Charge Gel Moisturizer


Pond’s Men Energy Recharge Brightening Gel greasy skin moisturizer. This is made for the men who need fairness, good skin and with no stickiness. The texture is quite light and this gets in to the skin with gentle massaging with finger tips. Men will like a product like this as this is not very oily in nature. But if your skin is very oily then the moisturizer may not make the skin oilier but it can also not control the oils for no more than 3-4 hours. Pond’s is a good brand that makes the beauty products for men these days. The face wash and moisturizer that they make are really worth trying. I have used their products and liked them. Dry skinned men may not like it as much since it is not very moisturizing but is a light fairness skin moisturizer. It has Coffee bean extracts and multivitamins to energize the dull and tired skin. This also has its own face wash, if you wish to try it too. The moisturizer improves the color of the men’s skin by working on the skin with its natural ingredients.

5. VLCC Men Active Light Fairness Moisturizer

VLCC Men Active Light Fairness Moisturizer


VLCC is also a well known brand that makes skin care, hair care and slimming related products. VLCC now makes products for men as well. This VLCC Men active light fairness moisturizer is with the botanicals like the mulberry extracts and vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 is known to whiten the skin and lightens the dark spots. This is why even Pond’s and a few other brands use Vitamin B3 in their products. For men who gets tanned in sun can see some relief as this fairness moisturizer has the SPF that protects the skin from the harmful UV rays which darkens the skin. Once the skin gets darker due to sun rays, it become quite tough to get rid of that tanning. Therefore, the best way, would be to not let this happen in the first place. Mulberry extracts are known to make the skin lighter and brighter when applied regularly.

Key ingredients: Mulberry extracts, Vitamin B3

6. Pond’s Oil Control Fairness Moisturizer

Pond's Men Oil Control Fairness Moisturizer


Another Pond’s product on our list. This is the Pond’s oil control fairness moisturizer. Have you noticed how a lot of companies are formulating moisturizers which are light and not those thick sticky creams. It is because when the skin is oily and needs fairness then the last thing we need is those heavy sticky skin creams. This fairness skin product for men is made with the rich mineral clay. It does give oil control benefits as the name suggest. The mineral clay absorbs the excess oils and sebum from the skin. But that does not mean that this will control the oils throughout the day. It can delay the oil production for few hours to be honest. It has SPF also in this fairness moisturizer but how much, it is not stated. I do not like when these brands will say that the so and so product contains SPF or UV filters but does not show the amount or exact detail. Other than the mineral clay gives oil control benefits. This also has witch hazel that is known to lighten the skin and also minimizes the open pores on the skin. It is also an affordable skin fairness cream for men for daily use. Even the college boys can try it.

Key Ingredients: Mineral clay, Witch hazel extract

The texture is exactly like that of the fair and lovely regular skin cream. Therefore, I can say that this skin cream will be okay-ish for oily to normal skin then dry skin.
