Why should moms be the only ones to get baskets of delectable beauty products? Just because we see more ties, watches and golf caddies fly off the shelf for Father’s Day doesn’t mean that Dad won’t appreciate (and secretly long for) a way to pamper himself come June 19.
This Father’s Day, think outside the gift box and consider a few items your dad might love in the line of soaps, shaving products, fragrances, skincare products and so much more.
Even if you’ve got the burliest mountain man on this side of the Rockies for a father, his skin still has all kinds of needs that must be cared for vis a vis a high-quality face wash or moisturizer. There’s nothing your old man will love more than scrubbing down with a Baxter of California Facial Scrub or an Anthony Logistics Mud Scrub Exfoliating Bar after a long day at the mines – proverbial or otherwise. Top it off with a moisturizer that’s especially designed for his skin type (if he’s prone to lots of sweat and even occasional adult acne, look for an oil-free formula).
It’s no secret – men love to shave, and just about any guy will appreciate a nice shaving kit. Include a pre-shave treatment, luxurious shaving cream, that high-quality razor he’s been longing for, and of course, an intoxicating aftershave splash or balm. If you’re really thinking in fancy terms, treat him to a top-quality shaving brush such as the Baxter of California Bog Wood Pure Badger Hair Shave Brush. For those in a bind, the eShave Ultimate Shaving Kit will save you time and deliver Daddy the ultimate shaving treat.
For the sun god in your life
If there’s nothing your dad loves more than hanging ten at the beach, spending all day on the golf course or extreme hang-gliding off his favorite cliff-face, put that piece of equipment away and consider addressing his other outdoor needs. A Jack Black Sun Guard Oil-Free Very Water/Sweat Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30+ will be the answer to all of his skin protection needs, whether he’s trying his hand at a pro surfing competition or napping pool-side with a wedge of lime in his beer. And even if he started his skincare routine a little later in life, the Cellex-C Sun Rescue Gel can help visibly reduce aging effects caused by excessive sun exposure.
Eau de Father’s Day
Has he had his eye on the new cologne by his favorite designer? Why not be one step ahead of him and show him how much you care with a Giorgio Armani Armani Code for Men, or a Ralph Lauren Polo Double Black for Men Eau de Toilette Spray? After all, Dad should smell as good as he looks and feels.
For the man who has it all
Your dad may have his own personal world at his feet, but there’s nothing like a big, heaping gift set to make him feel like he’s got it all. The Caswell-Massey Sandalwood Worldly Pleasures Collection comes in an attractive box with an ancient world map design on it, replete with cologne, conditioning shampoo, talc and woodgrain bath soap. If you’d like to treat Dad to a complete at-home facial, consider the Jack Black Clear Solution Skin Purifying Set. It comes with a daily facial cleanser with aloe and sage leaf, a complexion solution razor bump and acne treatment with salicylic acid and green tea as well as a detox clay mask/spot treatment with kaolin, witch hazel and organic sea kelp.
