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!
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.
