I can’t believe it’s already time to start hunting for the perfect Father’s Day gifts! If you’ve been caught by surprise this year or have no idea what to get, why not stick with the classics - fabulous skincare so dad can do a little manscaping, intoxicating colognes, a chic new watch for his collection or maybe even a new silk tie. Today I’m sharing a few of my top picks that are sure to make him look, smell and feel amazing!
Let’s begin with skincare because even dad needs a little sprucing up from time to time. Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Collection has been such a hit with the ladies they decided to launch a new line specifically formulated for the skincare needs of men. The Micro Exfoliating Cleanser is infused with Vitamin C, Algae, Malachite (copper containing extract), Rhodocrosite (rose colored mineral) and antioxidants that moisturize, improve texture, strengthen, condition, diminish wrinkles and protect against environmental aggressors.
The naturally derived exfoliating particles remove oil, dirt, pore-clogging build-up and dead surface cells to smooth rough skin and prevent dryness. It also cleanses well to brighten dull skin and prepare the face for shaving with fewer ingrown hairs.
The RE9 Anti-aging Moisturizer with SPF 15 hydrates and prevents sunburn while dad is out enjoying the summer! The lightweight non-greasy formula also firms the skin, improves texture, enhances elasticity and diminishes deep lines and wrinkles. Key ingredients like Japanese Pagoda Tree Flower, Vitamin C, antioxidants and natural extracts fortifies the skin’s moisture barrier and reduces the look of fatigue for youthful results.
If dad has been working hard and not getting enough rest it may start to show under his eyes. The Eye Repair Cream is infused with many of the same powerful active ingredients, extracts and botanicals to reduce puffiness, darkness and fine lines. Just a few dabs will smooth and refresh the eye area so he can get on with his day!
This collection is great because it pampers and rejuvenates the skin plus the tubes are small enough to slip in a gym bag or carry-on luggage. You can get all four products as a set for $122.00 via arbonne.com or through an independent consultant.
Now that his skin looks fab, let’s move on to scents! Cologne is one of the most popular gifts for men because smelling good is a part of looking good and looking your best promotes confidence. One of the hottest, most highly anticipated colognes by Azzaro has finally been released! Wanted is like no other cologne on the market, the bottle is sleek, sophisticated and dangerous - designed to resemble the cylinder of a loaded gun. Think James Bond mingled with the persona of an irresistible, sexy, seductive man who is envied and desired by all. This scent evokes themes of passion, raw masculinity, ambition, power and bravery - qualities most men strive for.
The notes encompass a complex intermingling of exotic ingredients including: spicy Ginger, zesty Lemon, Cardamom for vibrancy, French Juniper for a warm amber touch, Vetiver which emits a fresh woody tone and Tonka Bean which balances the blend with sensual almond scented mildness. My husband loves this cologne and I find it irresistible! Wanted retails for $92.00 per 100 ml and is available at Hudson's Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora and Sears.
If you are looking for something a little less intense yet still very elegant, Legend Spirit by MontBlanc has a cool confident blend of Citrus, Cardamom, Lavender, Pink Peppercorn, Grapefruit, White Musk and Sensual Wood. This is one of those fresh, versatile scents most guys would wear on a daily basis. The 100 ml bottle retails for $89.00 and it also came with a stylish weekender bag for travel. You can find MontBlanc at Sephora and department stores including The Bay.
MK High Intensity Ocean is a refreshing, energetic scent that is perfect for summer! It evokes the purity and vitality of the ocean air to recharge the senses and prepare him for the day ahead. The top notes include: Sea Mist Accord, Italian Bergamot, Green Mandarin, Juniper Berry and Ginger Spices, the middles notes are - Nutmeg, Geranium and Water Fruits and the base is - Patchouli, Oak Moss and White Amber. It retails for $49.00 and you can also get it as a set with the body wash for $69.00. Mary Kay products can be found online by clicking HERE and through independent consultants.
