What's wrong with Mannings and Watson? The whole male cosmetics industry is simply a marketing device from the cosmetics companies to create a set of brands and sell higher margin products to the gullible...
get on down to the landmark tonight (3/May) between 6:30 and 9pm - a bunch of the shops there are putting on an event
A relative who is a dermatologist* has a fairly amusing contempt for the whole 'high end' skincare products industry. Her approach is "buy the biggest, cheapest moisturiser and use it."
*i.e. is asked about this sort of thing on a regular professional basis, and who has to keep up with current scientifically valid, medical literature.

I second gentlemens tonic.
I was forwarded this email from a very well known dermatologist out of LA which rather confirms your point:-
1. Thoroughly cleanse the face morning and night with a soap-free cleanser such as Cetaphil or Physiogel. Any "boutique" cleanser with soap or a foaming agent can further clog the pores...
6. Only moisturise in dry areas, and only use a fragrance free moisturizer such as Cetaphil moisturizing cream. Do not use much.
With the so called high end products you are just paying for advertising and vanity.
(P.S. That advice would have cost you about US$500 if you had made an appointment to see him!)
