Father's Day Gift Guide (Or just for a special man in your life!)

10:37 AM

Happy Tuesday! 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I went home to Delaware to visit family for a few days with Chris. I had a great time, despite having a tree branch clunk me in the head and ending up in the ER for a few hours. All is good though -- no stitches and no serious injury, but will have a lovely scar on my scalp to remember the weekend! :)

Father's Day is approaching, so, I'm sure plenty of you are considering what are some potential options for you to get your Dad, your husband, your boyfriend, or just a special someone in your life (Chris' birthday is actually later this month, so, I'm personally on the hunt for something for him too). I thought it might be a great idea for me to share a few items I'd recommend picking up for maybe someone who isn't so skincare saavy or someone who may be looking to do a step or two for their skin.


Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA (Found on Paula's Choice here) -- I've only been using this for a week myself (Hence my last post being my first impressions on this), but I can already highly recommend this as something to use post-shaving for the prevention and treatment of ingrown hairs.

Ren Micro Polish Cleanser (Found on Sephora.com here) -- A lot of guys love scrubbing their face (I know Chris does), but if you cringe of the thought of them destroying their face with overly exfoliating, aggressive physical exfoliants, this is a great option. It has a small amount of lather, works great pre-shaving, and the granules are very small and gentle on the skin.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 (Found on Sephora.com here) -- One of my classics and still a staple. I've tried almost all the flavors, but still go back to the Natural Mint. Hydrating, not too shiny unless you apply a ton, SPF 25, and the best part? It's under $10.

Tools (Because what man doesn't love tools?)

Foreo Issa Hybrid Toothbrush (Found on Foreo.com here) -- Chris and I both own the Issa Hybrid and are in love. The silicone bristles are gentle on gums while the traditional bristles thoroughly clean your teeth. My gums have never looked healthier. Bonus? Foreo has the Cool Black device for 25% off through June 19th, so, you can save $50!

Foreo Luna Men 2 (Found on Foreo.com here for 25% off too!) -- This is also 25% off for the same sale as the Issa, but this is a great option for an exfoliating cleanse pre-shaving with your existing favorite cleanser (I wouldn't use it with one that has exfoliating granules like the Ren mentioned above, but any gentle cleanser will work). You'll notice smaller pores, smoother skin, and a better shave. Win, win, win.

Dollar Shave Club Razors (Found on their site here) -- We've all seen the crazy commercials, well ladies and gents, this is the real deal. I've been using their Humble Twin razor for over a year now and I'm getting five cartridges for $3 a month shipped. I'd say buy them a subscription for a few months and quit paying outrageous amounts for razor blades.


Maison Margiela Replica Jazz Club (Found on Sephora.com here) -- Yes, yes, and more yes. The first time I smelled this I made Chris buy it (Well, I didn't make him, but I got him a sample at Sephora and he bought it himself a few days later, but I take all the credit). It's got a mixture of tobacco, musk, vanilla, and a bit of leather. P.S.-- it's actually unisex and I've ran into a few ladies who wear this and it smells amazing on them too.

Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche (Found on Chanel.com here) -- This is a beautiful scent if you're looking for something that has some masculinity to it, but doesn't fall too overbearing. It's a little lemony, but also has notes of pink peppercorn and sandalwood. Chris got this at Duty Free in Sydney when we were heading home and I've been actually wearing this a few times as well.

I hope you all found that somewhat helpful :) What are some of the items you're getting that special someone in your life?
