I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you making it easy for me to order men’s products that actually work! As one of my New Year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to start taking better care of myself. I recently went into a number of department stores to learn what products are out there and quickly became confused by the many choices they carry. I was also pretty disappointed that many of the samples I was given just didn’t work well. I saw some information in the New York Times about Matte For Men and decided to give you guys a try. Steve (in Customer Service) was extremely helpful in answering my questions and I got my order in only 2 days! Your website is a pleasure to use and your “no nonsense” approach to skincare has made my life a lot easier. Thanks again!

Thanks for the prompt response and resolution. I’ll look forward to trying out the lip balms. While I’m at it let me say that I’m really glad I came across your products as they really are superb and work really well for me.

I bought Matte for Men last year for a friend’s birthday and he LOVES it. I am ordering more for his birthday this year, too! And, I’m going to start my 14-year old nephew on it!

Your products changed my life. I am a fan for life. Keep up the good work.

I imagine that you have a lot of customers who choose your products simply because of their excellent quality, and that is reason enough. We purchase the face care lotion for an additional reason as well - it's the only protective lotion with sunscreen that my BF can tolerate wearing. He marvels at how he can tolerate it -he has literally tried dozens of brands, but they either feel like a mask or cause him to break out.
Wearing sunscreen is essential for him. He had a kidney transplant for 25 years during which time he had some issues with skin cancer due to the fact that the anti-rejection medications increase susceptibility and in the late 80's, not much was said about protecting skin from the sun. The skin cancer nearly cost him the opportunity to have another transplant when the first one declined due to age (it was only supposed to last 7 to 10 years). However, after following the surgeon's recommendation of being cancer-free for two years which caused him to be in dialysis for 26 months, he was able to receive another transplant this past March.
There is a measure of risk associated with this decision to receive this second transplant because (among other things) of the potential return of the skin cancer. The fact that he has found Matte for Men has been a godsend, actually. It's been a piece of the puzzle, if you will that has allowed him some peace of mind to follow this treatment route - along a great dermatologist, the discovery of comfortable clothing with SPF, and the myriad of health care professionals that have helped him along the way and continue to do so.
Thank you for making this product available, and please don't stop producing it!!!!We are grateful for all things from even the most seemingly insignificant that have allowed him to begin living his life again, and I thought your company should know that.

Please let Mr. Jacobs know what a great job he did with the Matte for Men products. These by far are the best I have ever tried!

I just got this tweezers with my order as my wife was tired of me using her's. She tried mine and now I can't get it back (and she paid twice as much for the one she uses!)

First let me say how much I love your products as I’ve been using them for the past few years now and have never gotten so many compliments on how great my skin looks. You guys have made it simple for me to care for my skin and easy to understand what each product does…so thanks. The real reason for this note though is to let you know what a pleasure it is dealing with your Customer Service Team. I had a question about one of your items and left a message for your Customer Service Team. Within the hour, I received a call from Steve. Not only was he very knowledgeable about men’s skincare, he actually took the time to help me figure out what products would work best for me (and didn’t try and sell me things I didn’t need!). He then went ‘above and beyond’ as a few days later I received a package from him containing a travel case he thought I could use since I told him I was going on a trip soon. His gesture really surprised me. Between the great products and superior customer service you provide, Matte For Men is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with.

I have to say I was skeptical at first in trying some higher end mens's skin care. I always thought that generally shave gels were all the same. The first time I used the Matte For Men Shave Gel I have to say it was a unique experience. I was used to a more "foamed" up gel when shaving but the Matte For Men Shave Gel glided more against the contours of my face. Shaving with this gel was a very relaxing experience and afterwards the scent was so good I wouldn't have even needed an aftershave. Overall the shave gel was an A+ experience and I have since moved on to the rest of the Matte for Men line. I would highly recommend the product to anyone who is in for a better product then what they can find at the local drug store.

For decades I have used expensive skin care AND fought hair loss. Now that I shave my head, I have found only one product (in the world I suppose) that meets all my skin -- and head -- care needs... especially all-day mattification AND protection from skin cancer and aging. Please don't ever stop making MFM total care lotion.

I have to tell you a quick story. I was a customer of you guys years back. I think I had a couple of orders. Loved the product, but being my first go around with getting stuff a little more high quality, I wondered what else was out there. I have bounced around and tried everything under the sun. Liked some products, but seemed to always compare the things to you guys and found it lacking. Long story short, after "traveling the globe and back", I am back where I belong.

This may be one of the more unusual commentaries you will ever receive. I have not been able to shower for the past three months. I am a renal dialysis patient, and for the past three months I have relied on a surgically implanted catheter in my chest to permit dialysis. The downside to the catheter is that you may not take a shower the entire time it is implanted. After allowing my fistula to develop in my arm, I was finally cut loose from the catheter and allowed to shower normally again. In order to make it a memorable occasion, I decided to treat myself to the most luxurious soap I could find online. I stumbled upon your products and was instantly intrigued by your Hand Crafted Natural Cleansing Bar. I love the fact that it is made in the USA, too! I bought a bar for my " return to the shower " and I must say it is a wonderful product. The scent is very invigorating and the bar produces tons of rich creamy lather. Bravo! Matte for Men. Thank you for making my first shower in three months well worth the wait.
