Long gone are the days when skincare products would only be used by women and people in the entertainment business. In recent years, everyday men have begun embracing personal care products for their skin health, with millions incorporating items such as lotions, creams, and oils into their daily routines. With popular trends like Instagram and selfies, our faces can be seen by thousands on any given day, so why not try to look our best while we’re at it?
As men’s skincare gains momentum, hundreds of new and established brands have tried to capitalize on this movement by launching their own lines of skincare products for men. However, as with any new and promising industry, there are always those companies looking to simply make a quick buck at your expense. As a result, the industry has become difficult to navigate for new customers who just want an effective and convenient solution to their skin problems without the risk of overpaying. As one of the leading manufacturers of skincare products for men, Tiege Hanley aims to tackle this problem head-on by offering simple, affordable, and effective skincare solutions for men.
While their name is instantly recognizable by those familiar with the industry, the average person may not be as familiar. That is why we have curated this review to go over the brand and their products to help you decide whether or not Tiege Hanley is right for you.
Tiege Hanley is the brainchild of Kelley Thornton and Aaron Marino. Maybe the names don’t sound familiar, but you may have seen Aaron’s videos on his YouTube channel, where he has over 5 million subscribers. There, he offers advice on style, grooming, and fitness, so a line of personal care products for men was naturally the next step for him to take.
As they state on their website, “Tiege Hanley’s sole mission is to help guys look and feel amazing by providing a simplified skincare system.”
Emphasis on “simplified.” The brand offers a subscription system that makes it extremely easy for men to choose the best products for their face care needs. While subscription services have become increasingly popular in the past few years, Tiege Hanley’s subscription system is fully customizable, giving you the freedom to pick and choose the right products for your skin concerns.
How It Works
Like many new brands in the health and wellness industries, Tiege Hanley has adopted an online subscription system, so you can shop for their products from the comfort of your own couch. I am personally a huge fan of this online system, as it only requires to shop for their products once. After your first order, the same order will be delivered to your door every month, unless you choose to change, pause, or cancel it.
To be fair, Tiege Hanley’s subscription system is pretty easy to get used to. By far, the most challenging part of their process is selecting the right products for your needs and sticking to a daily routine. Fortunately, the brand does a good job of helping new customers choose the right products. However, when it comes to sticking to a routine, that is completely up to you.
From acne to crow’s feet, Tiege Hanley has developed a concise, yet comprehensive lineup of products designed to help resolve common skin problems affecting men. Their collection of skincare systems includes the following products:

Tiege Hanley Review
We tried Tiege Hanley’s Skin Care System Level 3 for 30 days to see exactly how effective their products can be. With six different products included in this bundle, the Level 3 Skin System is the most comprehensive system in their lineup. While results are obviously the most important factor in our review, we have also taken into consideration other factors like price and quality of ingredients.
Here’s a quick review of Tiege Hanley’s skincare system.
- Works for all skin types and tones
- Simple subscription service
- Visible results in 30 days
- Affordable for industry standards
- Cancel anytime
- Not 100% natural
- Products not sold individually
- Costly international shipping
It’s hard to find male beauty products that are cheap and good. When it comes to skin health products, what you pay is what you get. Having said that, there is no need to spend $100+ every month for good quality skincare. Tiege Hanley finds that happy medium between quality and affordability thanks to its premium ingredients and direct business-to-consumer marketing.
Quality and Eco-Friendliness
When it comes to quality, we mostly focused on their ingredients and manufacturing methods. While Tiege Hanley’s entire collection is not 100% natural, its products do not contain any harmful ingredients. The ingredients include both natural, vegetable-derived, and synthetic materials, though they can’t be considered vegan due to their use of beeswax in their moisturizers and eye cream. It should also be noted that Tiege Hanley products are never tested on animals, so they are cruelty-free.
Now, the most important thing: results. After personally trying their Level 3 System for 30 days, I can confidently say Tiege Hanley works. I naturally have oily skin and larger-than-desired pores on my nose and cheeks. While Tiege Hanley did not leave my face completely flawless (can’t be expected in only 30 days), it significantly reduced the size of my pores and left my face feeling smooth, moisturized, and oil-free most days. I should emphasize that I did not stick to the recommended daily routine every day. In fact, that was the most challenging aspect of using this system, since it’s adding an extra 10-15 minutes to both your morning and bedtime routines.
However, using the products did get much easier after the first 10 days. I’m sure that if I had used their products the way they are supposed to be used, I would have seen even better results. While 30 days is not a lot of time, it’s not hard to tell that Tiege Hanley works, and it does what it promises it will do: provide a solution for effective skincare.
