Let’s hear it for the boys during Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!

One reason I love the cooler air and the changing colors on the trees…Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!! There are deals galore like buy one, get one 50% off on everything from charcoal masks to body butters.

Today, however, I wanted to focus on the guys. In particular those manly men with mighty beards! My oldest child just turned 24 years old and he has the biggest beard…I can’t get over it. Somehow he went from this….

to this….

…seemingly overnight. Luckily there are tons of great options for him at Meijer, which is perfect since he is a poor college student and can use every bargain there is! These are the lines and the items that really peaked his interest:

  1.  Old Spice:  Guys go crazy for this stuff. My husband loves it, my nephews fight over it, and my son steals it to take back to college every time he comes home.  Meijer sent a variety of Old Spice items and it was like a piranha feeding frenzy in my living room! I asked the men what the appeal was, and they said the scent is classically manly. You just can’t go wrong with it. Oh, and chicks dig it. Always.

    Old Spice Live Wire Hydrating Body Wash

    Old Spice Swagger Invisible Spray

    Old Spice Stronger Swagger Deodorant

    The Live Wire Hydrating Body Wash is the only body wash that my die-hard bar soap men will actually use – they swear by it.

    Bull Dog Skin Care for Men

  2. BullDog Skin Care for Men: my son is a very passionate young college student who cares very much about the environment and animal rights. So he was all over BullDog Skin Care, which is cruelty-free, vegan, and made with care and integrity. BullDog has fantastic skin care products and where it really shines is in the beard grooming department. The Beard Shampoo and Conditioner is so cool – it’s pretty gross when you read about how much stuff gets caught and collects in beard hair throughout the day. And the Original Beard Balm is superb, softening, conditioning, and moisturizing the beard hair.

    Younger guys totally dig this line – it’s a hipster’s dream come true. And you will love the way the products smell – they are just as manly and sexy smelling as Old Spice.

  3. Beard Guyz:  Oh how I love this line!! Beard Guyz knows how to do beards better than anyone. If your guy has a mighty beard, get to Meijer and pick up some of this mighty good beard grooming product. He is going to love it. The Daily Wash 35 and Beard Butter with Grotein (isn’t that hilarious??) are terrific, but the real standout is the Beard Oil 25.

    The Beard Guyz Beard Oil 25 has 25 organic oils that actually keep beard hair soft and conditioned. It really does turn an unruly facial mess into a wonderfully silky beard. It also conditions the skin, relieving any dryness and itchiness, and it doesn’t leave hands or hair greasy at all. I am very, very impressed with Beard Oil 25…and so are my guys. This is a WINNER. It comes in 7 scents including Original, Black Ice, Citrus Splash, Lake Breeze, Cedar Cove, Cool Mint, and Everest, plus Unscented. My guys love the Original scent.

There are lots and lots of great reasons to shop at Meijer during Fall Beauty Week, and hopefully you found something that might work for your guy in the excellent array of men’s products in today’s post.  Hooray for fall and hooray for Fall Beauty Week!  Happy shopping!!  – Lisa

It seems everyone has a mighty beard these days, including my son. He came home from grad school with such a mighty beard I couldn’t believe it!With Max

Thankfully, he’s not a father yet…Marcia loves being a grandma, but I’m happy to wait. But my hubby is a happy father and he’s also got a beard. Both of the men in my family are pretty obsessive about grooming their facial hair and I’m betting the men in your life might be too – so here a few great products to consider for Father’s Day.

If your dad is a shaving aficionado, I suggest the Boar Shave Set ($30) from Van Der Hagen. The Boar Shave Set is a terrific ‘throwback’ item that any man worth his beard will love to get for Father’s Day. This shaving set has everything he will need for a beautifully close shave:
•    100 percent pure badger brush to lather in luxury
•    Classic monogrammed apothecary mug
•    Hypoallergenic shave soap
•    Combination brush & razor stand

Don’t forget to also pick up the Traditional Safety Razor ($20). Wow, I remember my dad using this kind of razor…and then in later years bemoaning the fact that he couldn’t find them any longer. This razor is made with heavy-duty chrome plated brass. It has a smaller handle, which makes for a better grip while shaving. It includes 5 double edge, Teflon-coated razor blades. The stainless steel blades prevent ingrown hairs and the back of the cartridge actually holds used blades, quite a clever feature!

  • Butterfly opening
  • Pack of 5 double edge, Teflon-coated, ice tempered stainless steel blades

The van der Hagen soaps are all made in small batches using their own unique kettle process. The shave soap has humectants like shea, mango and cocoa butters which means a closer shave without nicks, cuts, or ingrown hairs.

My husband absolutely LOVES this shaving set. The first time he used it he said, “This is going to make me want to shave more often!” And guess what? He really does because it’s such a kick to use this retro set. That makes me happy because it leaves his skin really soft and smooth and let’s face it – that makes for much better kissing.
