Van Der Hagen Shaving Set and Beard Guyz Beard Oil

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.

Beard Guyz Beard Oil 25 ($14.95) is a really cool grooming product. It 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 the 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.

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!

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.

Summer fun from Shannon’s Soaps

Summer is here.  On my beauty list for seasonal readiness:

1.  Shave legs and underarms

2.  Smell amazing

Where do I go to accomplish these tasks? Shannon’s Soaps, a fabulous etailer site with everything you need to get clean and smell good. Shannon sent the BIZ a few products to try, and here are some must-have’s for summer.

You’ve got to try the Shaving Soap (2.5 – 3.5 oz round: $4.00 each) for women, this comes in the scent Heavenly. Heavenly is a floral that definitely has rose in it. It’s a pretty but subtle scent that I really like.

The Shaving Soap is made of saponified oils of palm, coconut, shea butter, grapeseed oil, walnut, and macadamia nut; plus of course fragrance.

The Shaving Soap creates a beautiful foam that is thick, but not as thick as shaving cream. That’s a good thing when shaving legs and underarms – too much foam makes for a clogged razor.

While you can put this in a mug and use a brush to work up the beautiful foam, I go for the no fuss direct application. I just smooth this soap over my legs and it becomes a creamy goodness that softens hair and makes for a fabulous, perfect shave. The lather rinses easily and cleanly out of your razor, making shaving much less of a chore. Believe me, your signficant other is going to try to steal this from you – so hide it well and enjoy easy shaving that results in super smooth skin.

Next on my list for summer is to smell good. I like scents that are summer specific, and I have long been a fan of Bobbi Brown’s Beach. This fantastic cake of soap smells just like the BB fragrance – sea spray, sand, jasmine, salt, and mandarin. It instantly transports me to the beach.  

smells like summer!

The Sun and Sand Soap (2.5 – 3 oz round: $3.00 each; 3.8 – 4.2 oz bars: $4.00 each) is made of saponified oils of palm coconut, olive, sunflower, castor; fragrance; ultramarine blue; and chromium oxide green. This is a hard bar that doesn’t melt away and it gives great lather with the perfect amount of scent. I think this is the ultimate summer bar of soap.

Shannon’s Soaps has all kinds of awesome products from bath salts to body lotion to body balm. Definitely check it out for all your summertime bath and body needs!  – Lisa
