The Body Shop for Men. Father's Day gift Ideas
Disclosure: I have been given the opportunity to try out some Body Shop product for Men.
At first thought, I did not know that Body Shop had Men's products for sale in store. I always thought of Body Shop as the great smelling store your mother or girlfriend would spend hours in shopping. The last time I went into a Body Shop was probably to buy their popular gift baskets for those last minute birthdays or celebrations.
It is great timing to try the Men's Body Shop line because I'm in the midst of trying different products but at a reasonable and affordable price. I'm the type of guy that will use Edge shaving cream for $2.99 or to the other extreme in price value of Kiehl's or Anthony for Men for about $20.00 a product.
The products I'm testing are Maca Root Deodorant, Maca Root Eye Serum and Maca Root Shave Cream. Maca Root from my understanding is like a creatine that helps boost skin vitality and firmness. More details on Maca Root can be found at Thebodyshop.ca
I like the deodorant because it's actually smells good and is very similar to the Old Spice products. If you want a unique smell from all the other guys you might want to try the Maca Root Deodorant. Be different right? The cost of the Maca deodorant is $6.00
I'm still using the eye serum while writing this post. It suppose to help tired eyes which I definitely have over this past week with so many events and late night parties. I like this product because I never knew this type of product existed for men. I don't know to many men that use it either but i'm using it now. I can use all the help I need. It's an antioxidant and I'm sure this product will get rid of my bags under my eyes(in progress). If you seem at events, let me know if I got bags under my eyes. I hope Maca Root eye serum will help me. :-)
This is Edge Gillette shaving cream. Messy and foamy if you like that type of shaving cream.
This is Maca Root shaving cream. Not messy and not foamy. Better lather on the skin. IMHO.
My favourite item is probably the shaving cream. I'm not a fan of the whippy and messy shaving cream that are available at the cheaper price points. Waking up in the morning and having to shave should be a quick clean and simple process. I like how it lathers with just a small amount in hand. It does not get all messy and it truly makes for a better shave with razor. It coats your skin with a thin layer so you can see which areas you need to hit unlike foamy shaving creams. The Maca Root shaving cream is very similar to "Anthony for Men" but at half the price. I would recommend using this product for sure. Best value for $10.00 a bottle.
As Father's Day approaches and you need that last minute gift hopefully this gives you some ideas. It's a gift that will definitely be used for awhile. To purchase and get more info on the products check out TheBodyShop.ca
