Geologie Review

Why We Like Them

Geologie is a men’s skincare company that aims to revolutionize the world of skincare and grooming and get rid of the misconception that skincare is a luxury. It rejects the notion that skincare products have to be universal and caters to handpicking products that fit with the user’s skin type. They identify skin profiles and align it with a suitable personalized regime.

    Geologie Company Overview

    Expected to hit $166 billion by 2022, the men’s personal care market is booming worldwide according to a study conducted by Allied Market Research. The demand for male grooming products is slowly shifting from the basics like shaving and fragrance to more skin-care related products like cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens, and that is precisely what Geologie focuses on.

    Geologie is a disruptor in the male skincare industry as it assesses the users’ skin type and conditions and suggests the right kind of products suited to them. With a high level of customization involved, there are no-size fits all options which might not suit your skin. Geologie products are packed with top-notch active ingredients formulated by a set of world-class dermatologists and cosmetic chemists to work specifically according to the user’s needs.

    Is Geologie Right for You?

    If you’re someone who breaks out from using products in the market or what to know exactly what goes into your skin, then Geologie is the perfect match for you. Not only do they assess your skin profile to match you with products thus providing you with personalized customer experience, but it also comes with an affordable 30 day trial of their entire product line before you commit to purchasing it. Post which you can subscribe to the 90-day supplies of the products you love the most or go a la carte. If by any chance you’re not satisfied with the 30-day trial, you can contact their help center within 14 days and they will initiate the refund. The unused products have to be returned to the company and the refund would be received within 7 days of them receiving the products. They have a subscription model where the products are delivered on a monthly basis to your doorstep. You get larger discounts with longer plans.

    When you visit the Geologie website, you’ll be prompted to take the diagnostic assessment. The test covers all aspects of your skincare regimen from your current habits, skin conditions, and skin issues you wish to tackle. Desired outcomes may vary from person and may include sun protection, reduced blemishes or fine lines or wrinkle reduction. Once you take the assessment, a custom radar chart is created for you where the Geologie experts recommend the best set of products suited to you.

      Salicylic acid is the primary active ingredient employed in the face wash which helps to combat acne and oil and acts as a great exfoliator, reduces inflammation, and aids skin healing. The face wash contains ingredients like organic aloe leaf juice, Sodium Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Chloride, Polysorbate 20, PEG 150 Pentaerythrityl, and Tetrastearate. This face wash is meant to be used post your morning shower and right before bedtime.

      What Do We Think About Geologie?

      Geologie offers a sleek, user-friendly website to navigate through their varied product offerings. An updated blog and FAQ section act as a great guide to the overall customer experience. Getting in touch with them is fairly straightforward as their social media handles as well as email ids are available on the website. You can also opt for their free newsletters to stay updated with the latest skincare trends.

      Geologie takes your safety and ethics very seriously. Their products are 100% cruelty-free and FDA approved. They don’t use any harmful chemicals like parabens, phthalates, or sulfates in any of their formulations. What we love about Geologie is that in case any of the trial products don’t suit your skin despite the diagnostic test, all you have to do is inform them and they will offer you a free replacement of that product. Most of their products are fragrance-free so as to not irritate the skin of users that have sensitive skin. The team at Geologie has thoughtfully crafted a set of two cleansers in the trial kit as well as the full-size packs keeping in mind that the conventional user requires one in the sink and one in the shower. In our opinion, Geologie is a great gifting option for guys who like a no-hassle skincare regime with minimal steps.
