Father’s day is fast approaching and we have hand picked a few items from our shelves at Thompson Chemists that your daddy dearest is bound to love.
First up from the Baxter of California line is the Invigorating Body Wash. We carry them in two scents, the Bergamot/Pear Essence and the Pomegranate/Lime Essence. I adore both for they both have such a light and delicate scent to it and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean.
Next, if your papa has stubborn skin that is prone to ingrown hairs- treat him to the Truefitt Hill Shaving Cream. This wonderful product from the English company will give your father a whole new experience in shaving. The shaving cream comes in a 5.8 oz tub and will last nearly forever. My personal favorite is the West Indian Lime–there is a fresh and revitalizing smell to it. He will discover a smoother, more satisfying shave and if he tops it off with Barc’s Bump Down he is sure to have rid all ingrown hairs! Bump Down dramatically reduces the appearance of razor bumps and ingrown hairs all the while protecting and moisturizing the skin. I favor this razor bump relief product to others because it is lotion based, and alcohol free so it won’t burn or irritate your skin even further.
If you believe your father will prefer a shaving soap rather than a cream, I recommend he tries Alabu Shaving Soap This shaving soap has an undertone of cinnamon and has essential oils added to it to keep your skin from breaking out after shaving.
For the face, I’d like to recommend two things from Anthony Logistics for Men, a Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($31) and Astringent Toner Pads. ($20) The moisturizer has extracts of sugarcane, sugar maple, orange and lemon which helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and blotches. The pads come in a tub of 60 pads and was actually a Men’s Health & Grooming 2008 winner. The Astringent Toner Pads have a slightly minty smell to it and leaves your face feeling fresh and clean. The purpose of the pads is to eliminate impurities, tighten pores and control shine. Also for the face, I also recommend the Clarifying Clay Mask ($15) from Baxter of California. The facial mask provides a deep-cleansing experience that tightens your pores, moisturizes and soothes your skin, all the while revitalizing it!
In addition to all these wonderful products, we also carry a variety of shaving brushes and razors, to see them just stop by the store and have a look!
