Friday, December 12th, 2014

Best Gifts for The Beauty LoverHoliday gift ideas may not come easily, especially for those who are not fond of shopping. There are several online stores and eCommerce options that specialize in a number of different industries and genres. These solutions make it simple to shop for the man or woman who seems to have everything. When a gift recipient has a special interest or hobby, the search for the perfect gift becomes narrower and directed toward a specific product or service. Anyone who is into beauty regiments and skincare treatments will be pleased with the great new holiday collections by some of the most trusted names in the business.

Consider Gift Sets
Attempting to make a purchase of multiple beauty products or skincare enhancements is typically much smoother when the products are bought in tandem. Gift sets are not only more economically priced, but they are also conveniently and beautifully wrapped. This single step approach saves the giver both time and resources. The Philosophy Pink Marshmallow Buttercream Trio makes a fun gift because it encompasses many different facets of a daily beauty routine. Gift sets like this one include a bath or shower gel, scented lotion, and a bonus item for good measure. In this case, a moisturizing lip shine adds the finishing touch to morning preparations.

Remember The Men
Gift sets are not just for the ladies, and many popular brands are specifically catering to the male audience. Today most men are keenly aware of the benefits of proper skincare. Certain occupations, especially those that include outdoor work, can result in dry or rough skin. Men can now protect their hands and face from chapping and cracking, which can be extremely painful. One of the easiest gifts to choose for a man is a shaving product or gift set. The Art of Shaving Skin Care Kit features a host of products meant to prepare skin for shaving and then provide lasting protection.

Add Some Glamour
Every woman wants to feel beautiful and desirable. Sometimes they spend so much time as caregivers that they fail to take time to adequately care for themselves. Cosmetics are a great gift for the girl who wants to look and feel her very best. A gift that allows a woman to pamper herself through a massage, manicure, or pedicure will be much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. Bold and flashy cosmetics are great ideas for the woman who wants to make a statement. The flirtatious Sexyback Lip and Nail Duet from the Deborah Lippmann collection is the perfect accent gift or stocking stuffer from ladies who love to have fun with their makeup and accessories. Ladies who prefer a more practical approach to life but still have a great sense of humor will get a kick out of the Bliss Crown Jewels or Buttah Bling gift sets.

Regardless of the number of tasks at hand for the season, shoppers are sure to find the perfect choices for all the men and women on their gift list. Leading brands have made their most coveted products available in convenient packaging to make the shopping experience seamless and productive. Many shoppers are bound to be so impressed with their skills that they will decide to pick up a few key products for themselves during their shopping excursions.

What will you get your dad this Father's Day?Even though Mother’s Day tends to overshadow the holiday devoted to dads everywhere, celebrating Father’s Day this June 17 with a thoughtful gift is still a good way to show your father that you’re grateful for all he’s done for you. But what will you get him? Some dads seem to have everything they could possibly want! Here are several ideas to help you decide on the perfect present this Father’s Day.

1. Tickets to see his favorite sports team. Whether it’s for a baseball game this summer or a football game next season, chances are your dad will love the opportunity to watch his favorite team play. Get two tickets so you, Mom or a friend can accompany him for the perfect day out.

2. A deluxe shaving kit like eShave – Start Up Kit. It comes with a genuine badger brush, which exfoliates, softens and raises the hair for a shave that’s as close as possible. The set also includes a pre-shave oil, shave cream and after shave cream, all in a convenient black travel bag. Stubble will be a thing of the past for your dapper dad!

3. A home brewing kit. Does your father have a taste for cold, delicious brews? Instead of taking him out for a night at the local brewery, get your dad everything he needs to create his own ale. A couple of beer mugs to go with the set will ensure that he’ll be able to taste his masterpiece in style.

4. Anti-aging skincare products like Jack Black – Line Smoother Face Moisturizer. If your dad has started to complain about the fact that he’s getting older, a few choice skincare products to combat fine lines, wrinkles and age spots might be just the thing to lift his spirits. Lightweight and oil-free, your dad will barely notice that he’s wearing this moisturizer – until he starts seeing results!

5. The latest gadget. If you have siblings who can help you buy a splurge-worthy item for Dad, why not get him up-to-date on the latest technologies? Whether he’s into computers, eBooks, cameras, smartphones, mp3 players or television, there’s likely a new product out that he’d love to get his hands on.

6. A classic yet cool tie. If you think your father could use a bit of direction when it comes to his fashion tastes, you might be doing him a favor by providing him with a go-to tie to wear for special occasions. Choose one that complements his personality and favorite color scheme so he’ll always look dashing.

7. A new fragrance, like RALPH LAUREN – Polo For Men Eau de Toilette Spray. If your dad doesn’t have a signature scent to call his own, he’d likely jump at the chance to impress your mom with a manly new cologne.

8. Tools to help him get his grill on. If your dad considers himself the master of the grill, a few new accessories designed to help him make the most of his skills might be the perfect present. Spatulas, serving plates, aprons, marinades and spices are all fair game.

9. A beach kit. If your dad enjoys nothing more than a relaxing day by the shore, a beach kit might be a great idea. A brand new cooler, a plush towel, a new swimsuit and a sunblock like Dermalogica – Daily Defense Block SPF15 are all good choices that he’ll get a lot of use out of.

10. A poker set. Does your father like to get together with his guy friends every now and then for a game of poker? If he doesn’t already have his own set of chips and a table to play on, you can bring the party to his house by supplying him with all the goods.

Andy Roddick promotes Lacoste's Challenge fragranceWhile Andy Roddick is perhaps best known as an international tennis sensation, others may recognize him as the new face of Lacoste‘s Challenge fragrance. However, people shouldn’t assume he indulges in a plethora of products just because he is promoting the sexy scent.

"My personal style is pretty much what you’re seeing right now," Roddick, who was wearing a gray t-shirt and jeans, told StyleList.com. "There’s really no routine. I shave once every ten days."

Not that women seem to mind. Roddick was voted People magazine’s Sexiest Athlete in 2003 and is married to Brooklyn Decker, who graced the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Ladies who are looking for a new fragrance for their main man may want to consider picking up a bottle of Lacoste Challenge For Men Eau de Toilette Spray. According to the news source, the cologne has a masculine, woody base and features notes of tangerine-lemon citrus and ginger.

Those in the market for a more exotic scent can try Armani Code For Men Eau de Toilette Spray, which contains notes of lemon and olive tree blossom.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19933818-ADNFCR

Experts tell Men’s Health how to best apply cologne

Experts tell Men's Health how to best apply cologneAccording to a survey conducted by Men’s Health magazine, 56 percent of women say that men should wear cologne every day. However, 99 percent of ladies polled agreed that men shouldn’t smell like fragrance from more than a foot away. So how do you strike the perfect balance when applying your signature scent?

“Apply cologne on the places where you can feel the beats of your heart,” Rochelle Bloom, president of the Fragrance Foundation, told the news source, as the throb adds impact to the scent. Before you leave for work, target areas like wrists, the sides of your neck and over your heart.

Not every product that you use must be scented, industry insider Mikel Cirkus added. In fact, using a cologne, aftershave, body wash and deodorant that all boast different fragrances may result in clashing scents. Instead, opt for items with the same smell. Giorgio Armani‘s fragrance line, Armani Code For Men, offers cologne, after shave balm and lotion, shower gel and a deodorant stick.

Finally, if you find your scent fading, apply one more spritz around 3 pm. “A quick splash midafternoon is a psychological pick-me-up and keeps you smelling wonderful,” Mary Ellen Lapsansky, executive director of the Fragrance Foundation, told the news provider.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19912171-ADNFCR
