Happy Father's Day!
It’s time to celebrate the awesomeness of dads this weekend – Sunday is Father’s Day. Dads are great, but sometimes, maybe, they need a little sprucing up in the grooming department, agreed?!
So be kind this weekend and gift your dad the gift of grooming with something from our pick of the Father’s Day grooming gifts and essentials out there!
So, what would dad like? Maybe some Clinique Happy for Men (£29.99, feelunique.com) would make him, well, happy? Or the brand new Michael Kors For Men EDT (£61, houseoffraser.co.uk) a gorgeous sophisticated scent.
Give your dad a trophy with the fantastic Paco Rabane Invictus EDT fragrance in a brilliant trophy-shaped bottle (£38, feelunique.com). Our one of my favourite fragrances for men, Tom Ford’s original Noir (£62, johnlewis.com).
L’Occitane’s Cade Reinvigorating Shower Gel (£14.99, feelunique.com) will get your dad up and ready for anything in the morning. The Neville Face Reviver (£25, feelunique.com) is an old-school skin saviour, traditional dads will love! For a truly special, traditional gift, give dad the Taylor of Bond Street Gift Set Shaving Brush and Sandalwood Shaving Cream (£29.99, feelunique.com).
Sporty dads will love the Lab Series Spring Set (£25, houseoffraser.co.uk) which contains Multi Action Face Wash, Daily Moisture Defence Lotion, and Pro LS All-in-one Face Lotion.
Clarins have recently launched two new men’s products, perfect for a Father’s Day gift for the dad who loves skincare products. Their energizing and anti-ageing duo is reinforced with powerful anti-ageing active ingredients rich in plant extracts,to revitalize,soothe and purify.
Testosterone causes men’s skin to burn energy fast. Skin lacking energy will slow down skin cell activity, leading to loss of radiance, tone and the appearance of fine lines. Eyes will appear puffy, and dark circles will remain shadowed.
Clarins have 12 years experience in men’s skincare, and with that experience have launched these new products to combat the signs of fatigued and ageingskin.
The Revitalizing Gel (£32) and Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum (£29) are like an energy drink for the skin, and contains a unique combination of plant extracts, including bison grass, organic goji berry extract, avocado peptides and more to give men’s skin the boost it needs.
Liz Earle’s Ultimate Men’s Collection (£72, lizearle.com) is the ultimate way to spoil your product-fan dad. This contains five fab products, some muslin cloths, and a towelling cloth. Products inside are Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Sensitive Shave Cream, After-Shaving Moisturiser, Face & Body Wash, and Face Scrub.
Now, we all love a bit of retro-cool, and Tabac Original is definitely that! Hipster dads will love this kitsch brand. The Original Eau de Cologne is a classic gift for dads, hipsters or not! It has a peppery and floral scent, combining a blend of bergamot and neroli with lavender and accented with tobacco, of course, oakmoss and vanilla.
As well as the Cologne, there’s a full range of products – After Shave Lotion, Anti-Perspirant, Deodorant Body Spray, Deodorant Stick and Shaving Soap Bar and bowl. Spoil dad with the full range! (Prices from £4.60 to £13.60, Boots.com)
Happy Father’s Day to all dads!
