Oars + Alps Review: Groom with Confidence

Updated Date: by Reet Patel

In the busy schedule, many men neglect skincare regimens, which results in skin damage and dullness.  Or some men might abandon skincare products just because they don’t offer desirable or noticeable results. Other reasons for men to avoid skincare products can be unpleasant smells or side effects.

Do you face any such issues, or are you one of them?

Here is the solution for you. Oars + Alps contain simple, all-natural, travel-friendly, and effective skincare products.

DeAndre Hopkins, James Shaw, and many men are highly satisfied with Oars + Alps products. Here is their word of mouth for O + A products.

So how the brand was developed, and what made the founders think about building such a great brand.  Let’s unveil the story and products which you can add to your skincare routine.

In this blog, we have unbiasedly provided Oars and Alps Review that may help you to choose the best skincare product.

Oars + Alps: How it Started?

Unlike other men’s skincare brands, this one has a slightly different story wherein not the men but two women noticed the men’s skin-related issues.

The two women (Mia Saini Duchnowski and Laura Lisowski Cox) noticed their outdoorsy husbands using skin and eye creams to combat external pollutants, such as dirt, debris, wind, grime, sweat, and sun damage.  

One more issue that Laura’s husband was going through is eczema.  On the suggestion of Laura, her husband tried a few men’s skincare products.  Turns out, the products were ineffective since they were packed with chemicals.

That’s where both female friends decided to take charge in their own hands and build super-effective skincare products for men.  One ingredient they found to be effective is Alpine Caribou Moss, which comes from northern Finland’s harsh tundra that keeps your skin intact and healthy.

Out of several products, we have got a chance to try our hands at a few products. The products combat environmental impurities and make your skin neat and clean.

Unboxing Oars + Alps Products

Here are the men’s skincare products that are worth your investment and time.  So let’s discuss them in detail.

Before discussing the products, let us tell you that O+A gives you a chance to “Build Your Own Kit.”

We like this feature since it comes with several benefits (discussed later in the article.) We ordered the following products:

  • Oars + Alps Solid Face Wash
  • Oars + Alps Moisturizer + Eye Cream
  • Oars + Alps Eye Stick
  • Oars + Alps Natural Deodorant
  • Oars + Alps Body Wash

We found two common things amongst all the O + A products, i.e., travel-friendliness and Alpine Caribou Moss as a consistent active ingredient.

Another benefit such travel-friendly products bring to the table is they easily slide into your duffle or gym bag.  Plus, the protective cap on each product saves from spillage or accidents.

So let’s know each product in detail.

In-Depth Oars + Alps Review

Oars + Alps Solid Face Wash

Quantity: 1.4 fluid ounces

Packaging: Hard-shell roll-on applicator features twist cap

Oars and alps solid face wash is a stick-based product that comes with a roll-on applicator.  It is different from other competitors in terms of packaging, application, ingredients, and results.

When unboxed, we found a palm-size, hard-shell, matte blue bottle.  It comes with imprints on it that state:

  • Purpose
  • Avoided ingredients
  • Quantity

Since we are frequent travelers, our purpose was to keep the external pollutants at bay, which this solid face wash did within a few weeks of application.  

But that’s all the solid face wash brings to the table.

There is much more this solid face wash does, which includes:

  • Absorbing impurities with the help of Activated Charcoal
  • Boosts skin elasticity with the help of Alpine Caribou Moss
  • Detoxifies your skin with the help of Amazonian Clay
  • Coconut-derived surfactants remove excess oil without depleting natural oils
  • Offers antiperspirant benefits with the help of corn starch
  • Makes your skin acne-free from acne-prone with the help of Jojoba Oil
  • Juniper Berries deeply cleanses dead skin cells 
  • Seals moisture in the skin with the help of Larch Tree Extract

Since the solid face wash does a great job at exfoliating, it has some fine grit that you may feel when rubbing on your face.  Many might even have a question; does it stain a towel when patting against the face since it has activated charcoal?

When rinsing off, everything gets removed from your face, so there is no chance that it will stain your towel.

Now the question arises:

How to use Oars + Alps Solid face wash?

  • Wet your face with cold water
  • Apply the stick on your face (avoiding eyes)
  • Rub with your hands
  • Leave it for one and half minute
  • Rinse off with water

The solid face wash can also be used on beard or pre-shaving to achieve a close shave. 

  • Makes your skin clean and smooth
  • Keeps pollutants at bay
  • Easy to use
  • Mess-free application process
  • Some users find the scent to be overpowering

Oars + Alps Face Moisturizer + Eye Cream

Quantity: 2.5 fluid ounces

Packaging: Squeeze Tube

Whether it be skin aging, dryness issue, or under-eye concern, this Oars and Alps moisturizer is a one-stop solution.  Also, this works at any age or on any skin type.

The face moisture is an oasis in the desert for dry skin men.  Plus, it eliminates fine lines and wrinkles that make you look older.

What we like about this solid face moisturizer is it lasts for quite a long time.  We apply it every morning before stepping out of the house to keep the impurities away, and it still feels at the end of the day when we return from work (No pollutants on the skin.) 

Unlike our previous moisturizers, this one quickly gets absorbed in the skin without leaving a greasy residue.

For oily skin men or those who sweat a lot, this face moisturizer is a magic cream.  Besides, the moisturizer is unscented, which is why even sensitive skin men can use it without worrying.

So what makes face moisturizer so unique and worthy?  It’s the natural ingredient list:

  • Aloe Leaf Juice: Moisturizes your skin and fights signs of aging
  • Shea Butter: Seals moisture in your skin
  • Alpine Caribou Moss: Makes your skin better by protecting from damaging elements
  • Safflower Seed Oil: Makes your skin healthy and glowing
  • Jojoba Seed Oil: Restores, revitalizes, and rejuvenates your skin
  • Vitamin E: Antioxidant-rich agents fight external pollutants and tighten your skin

The white, opaque texture is lightweight and remains gentle on the face.

How to use Oars+Alps Face Moisturizer + Eye Cream?

  • Squeeze the tube and dispense a dime-size amount
  • Spread it across your hands
  • Apply evenly on your face
  • Thin layer under your eye and thick layer on the face
  • Massage it for a few until it gets absorbed

Apply the face moisturizer + eye cream in AM and PM.  You can also apply post-shaving as well.

  • Quickly absorbs into the skin
  • Works on all skin types
  • Removes signs of aging
  • Restricts external pollutants
  • No SPF protection

Oars + Alps Eye Stick

Quantity: 0.5 fluid ounces

Packaging: Hard-shell stainless steel roll-on applicator

Oars and Alps wake-up eye stick is the solution to all your side effects of sleepless nights.  The side effects include dark circles, puffiness, and crow’s feet around the outer corner of the eyes.

Since we suffered from the same under-eye problems, we ordered this wake-up eye stick.  It happened to be a magical elixir as it quickly removes puffiness and dark circles.  We noticed results within just a few weeks, but we still advise others to continue using it for at least 4-5 weeks.

Oars +  Alps claim that 9/10 users notice a reduction in puffiness within just a week of use.

The fascinating thing is the metal ball-equipped dispenser.  While rolling over under your eye, you will feel a cooling sensation.  Plus, the applicator doesn’t require hands.

What’s inside the hard-shell, metal-ball applicator:

  • Aloe Vera: Moisturizes your under-eye area
  • Caffeine: Reduces puffiness and dark circles under your eyes
  • Persian Silk Tree Bark: Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory properties to combat signs of aging

How to use Oars and Alps eye stick?

Since the solid stick is just a roll-on, it requires you to rub twice on the affected area gently. It quickly absorbs in the skin.  You can use it in the morning, before going to bed, or anytime during the day.  You can apply a face moisturizer post-applying solid stick.

Note: If the product accidentally enters your eye during the application, immediately rinse off.  Besides, never squeeze off the eye-stick.

  • No puffiness and dark circles
  • Pocket-size
  • Mess-free application process
  • Quick results
  • Quite expensive
  • Less quantity

Oars + Alps Natural Deodorant

Quantity: 2.6 fluid ounces

Packaging:  Hard-shell roll-on applicator

Oars and Alps natural deodorant is one of the products we are not going to replace anymore.  We have been trying a lot of deodorants, but none of them were up to our expectations.

We wanted a natural deodorant that can dissipate odor, leave no pit stains on the body or shirts, and offer natural fragrance.

Oars and Alps natural deodorants are the perfect matches for our needs.  It is non-sticky, non-greasy, leaves no stains, and has no white marks on the skin.  Plus, the deodorant is aluminum-free, which many studies claim causes cancer.

The scent is one of the crucial aspects to consider when buying deodorants.  It has also been resolved since the Oars and Alps deodorant comes with invigorating fragrances.

Here is the list of fragrances that are categorized under:


  • California Coast Scent
  • Fresh Ocean Splash Scent
  • Eucalyptus Spearmint
  • Aspen Air


  • Deep-Sea Glacier
  • Mandarin Woods
  • Unscented with prebiotic

We prefer the California coast scent since it contains natural ingredients, such as patchouli, ylang-ylang, and amber.  However, if you have sensitive skin, Oars + Alps offers a separate set of deodorants.  Another favorite scent on our list is the fresh ocean splash, a blend of Cedarwood and lime.

Whether you go to the gym or are traveling, you can always carry the deodorant since it is perfectly sized and TSA-approved.

How to use Oars and Alps Natural Deodorants?

Unlike other antiperspirants, this one takes time to get used to your body.  We will share what we experience in the initial days of application.

We remained odor-free from the first day of application. However, after the first week, we started sweating more than usual, which, according to the Oars + Alps review of natural deodorants, is the sign of removing toxins.

After applying it for two continuous weeks, the third week, we noticed no odor; it was the time we felt the deodorant start getting used to our body.

The only reason behind sharing our story is because that’s how exactly the Oars + Alps deodorant works.

  • Fresh scent
  • On the go product
  • Odor and sweat-free body
  • Stain-free body and clothes
  • Takes time in adjusting with the body

Oars + Alps Body Wash

Quantity: 14.4 fluid ounces

Packaging: Hard-shell bottle

Oars + Alps body wash is lightweight and comes with fine-grit that remains gentle and effective.  Thanks to jojoba beads for exfoliation that deeply cleanses your body and removes all the external pollutants.

On the other hand, the presence of Jojoba oil ensures sufficient moisturization that is essential after exfoliation.  Not to forget, Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant to keep the environmental stressors away from your body post-showering.

Oars + Alps body wash quickly creates lather and rinses off easily without leaving any sticky residue.  It smells awesome, which reminds us of the fragrances of O+A natural deodorant.

The only drawback of the body wash is it isn’t travel-friendly since it exceeds the limit of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

How to use Oars+Alps body wash?

  • Pour quarter-size amount into your hand
  • Massage from head to toe
  • Once lathered, take a warm water shower
  • Deeply cleanses your body
  • No sticky substances
  • Fights of free radicals
  • Not a travel-friendly product
