1. Clean

Our Purifying Clay Cleanser is best used to kick-start and cap off your day. Use it in the morning and right before bed to remove excess oil and deep clean your pores.

2. Protect

Our Daily SPF + Moisturizer should be applied—you guessed it—daily. Use after using our Clay Cleanser and about 20 minutes before stepping into the sun. Re-apply every 2 hours when in direct sunlight.

3. Repair

Before jumping into bed, treat your face to
3-in-1 Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizer. The overnight gel accelerates the repair and regeneration process you need to wake up feeling fresh, healthy and hydrated.

Purifying Clay Cleanser

Made with three types of clay (Kaolin, Bentonite, and Moroccan Lava). Just what you need to keep that money maker clean and in control. Clay has 4X the pore-cleaning power of charcoal and activates when mixed with water to hydrate the skin.

Great products

I've been using face products for only 2 years and I never stick to one particular brand until now. This products are great. They're no grease and my face feels amazing.

It can be difficult to find a one stop routine, especially for men. This stuff is great! There is nothing else needed to start or end your day.

Amazing products exceptional customer service !

First I must say I have extremely sensitive skin. Cardon skin care products have been the first product I’ve used that didn’t affect me adversely. The Purifying Clay cactus infused cleanser is fantastic. Really gently cleanses and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and clean. The 3 in 1 moisturizer is exceptional and not greasy or heavy. I initially had a problem with my first delivery and the gentleman who responded to my email immediately took care of the problem. All within a day. I look forward to many years of using the Cardon skincare line.

Great Skincare Products!

This is one of the best skincare products I've used. Cardon's products make my skin feel refreshed and renewed after a long day in the sun hiking! Will definitely keep purchasing more.

I'm middle aged but still look younger

I love the cleanser and the Spf omg quite amazing. I require more from a serum though but I'm hooked on the cleanser and spf for life.

Great product

I’ve been trying different products for men over the last few year: Brickell, Geologie, Jack Black — and Cardon is hands down my favorite. I ordered the sample box and within a week cancelled my Geologie subscription. It feels great on my skin, and my acne prone face looks the best it has in years. It also smells fantastic, without having that chemical cologne smell, which is a nice plus

Summer magic

I discovered the Cardon SPF/Moisturizer from a website when I was searching for SPF/Moisturizer and Cardon was recommended as one of the best so I gave it a shot. I like that it's light, it smells good and my skin looks great, but the moisturizer does not seem to work well during colder temperature. It still deserves a five star though. I do hope Cardon makes an SPF/Moisturizer that is made for colder weather.
