Looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift that shows that you care and is environmentally friendly at the same time, then you will enjoy our gift guide. All items featured are vegan and affordable.
It has been a long nearly impossible road to find my father any type of mens care gift, since he has very sensitive skin and on top of that I tend to hesitate buying him any kind of razor, since he has Hemophilia Type A. Even though I know it is the one self care item he could really use and would appreciate.
Recently, I felt really lucky to have been contacted by Bull Dog to try their men’s Original Bamboo Razor, which my father was skeptical, but excited to use at the same time.
Before he even got a chance to try the razor what really appealed to me was the companies focus on lowering its environmental impact from its natural bamboo handle to the un-chromed metal components.
-Comes with 4 refill blades
-5 tempered steel blades
-Lubricating strip with aloe
-Precision trimmerBrushed metal headNatural bamboo handleUnique locking screw (to replace bamboo handle)
As for my fathers review he said was impressed with the bamboo handle and the weight of the razor which is very sturdy. This was one of he first times he was able to have a clean shave leaving his skin nick free. He also said that the blade seemed to last longer making it possible for him to use it several times before it became dull. This is now his preferred razor to use and while the refill blades are very reasonably priced they are also extremely hard to find.
The moisturizer is literally my fathers skincare hero. In the past he would never used a facial moisture although it would beneficial for him to use due to the extremely dry weather in Las Vegas.
However he was hesitant at first, since he was concerned about becoming extremely itchy from it , which is usually the normal reaction he gets to almost all lotion products. He tried this moisturizer in the early morning on a weekday just in case he would have to wash it off.
To my fathers surprise when he applied it to his face nothing happened, it just made his face feel nice and soft, then he tried it the next day and still no reaction. He has been using it now for over a month and is now looking for places to purchase it for when it runs out since, it has drastically improved his dry skin. What makes this moisturizer very effective is that it contains baobab oil, oat oil and willow herb which the company has specially formulated to hydrate the skin without leaving it greasy or sticky it also leaves the skin feeling refreshed and soft.
-Hydrating moisturizer makes the perfect daily companion for your face
-Absorbs into the skin easily without feeling greasy or sticky
-Leaves the skin hydrated, soft and refreshed
-Fragrance free to help minimize irritation
-Ideal for everyday use on sensitive skin
If you are looking for a great environmentally gift for the father who likes to travel than Ethique’s is a company that you are sure to love.
This eco-friendly company makes a variety of personal care products from shampoo to body wash all in the form of a solid bar to eliminate unnecessary packaging.
Ethique was founded by Brianne West in 2012 , when she began making natural beauty bars, as an alternative to the billions plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles that are thrown out each year.
To date the company has stopped over 3.3 million plastic bottles from being made and disposed into landfills.
To date this is one of my favorite gender neutral gifts to purchase for someone, since the sampler set, which packaged in a box and is filled with their best selling products looks like yummy chocolate hearts( not for human or animal consumption). It is the ideal gift for someone who has sensitive skin. Best of all they lasting and the results after using it for a week are pretty noticeable.
Not all soap dishes are created equal, Ethique’s is made with bamboo & sugarcane and are completely compostable. Did you know they will also last up to five years in your shower or bathroom and if you keep them in a dry area it will extend the life of your bars.
Yes, I’m a bit nerdy, since I would give this to someone as a functional gift that I know they would use and it is also my small way of preventing more plastic to end up in landfills.
