We usually focus on the ladies here at Travel Beauty, but men, we want you and your skin to know that you are always on our minds. With Father’s Day around the corner, you may be able to cajole your family into snagging some of these shaving and grooming products for you. WARNING: Once you try them, you will never go back to your drug store brand again.
Binchotan Charcoal Shaving Gel
Binchotan charcoal, from Japan, seems to make every product with which it is infused exponentially better and more effective. Why? Known as the highest quality activated charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal can be used to absorb chemicals in tap water, remove toxins from the skin, capture moisture and odors from the air, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden and deflect negative ions in your home. Given this impressive resume, we are happy to have as many Binchotan charcoal products as possible, and they’ve now created a Binchotan Shaving Gel.
Binchotan Shaving Gel is a complete shaving experience, containing not only purifying Binchotan charcoal but also hydrating glycerin, invigorating rosemary and cooling menthol. What it does not contain are parabens, oil, synthetic fragrance or dye. Shaving Gel is a bit of a misnomer, as this is actually a 3-in-1 pre-shave lotion, shaving cream and aftershave that moisturizes, protects and soothes the delicate skin of the face and neck for a close shave that is not too close for comfort. As an all-in-one product, it’s perfect for busy mornings and, of course, travel. (Though we’re addressing the men here, it’s lovely on the legs as well, ladies, too.)
Binchotan Facial Soap
Many men prefer bar soap to liquid facial cleansers. If you are one of those, give Binchotan Facial Soap a go. It is gentle and has all of the purifying characteristics of Binchotan charcoal. Can be used as a 2-in-1 for the body as well.
Vine Minus Ion Care Water
Have extra sensitive skin that makes shaving a misery? After your shave, apply Vine Minus Ion Care Water, with a cotton pad, on your face and neck. Schpritz it on if you prefer. This miracle water from Japan is negatively charged and bonds to skin killing bacteria and hydrating the skin. It will also boost the efficacy of your aftershave. NASA uses this baby to keep bacteria from forming on the lenses of satellites that it sends into outer space. This is some serious high tech water that will heal and soothe your skin post shave.
