We hope you thoroughly spoiled mom with lots of lavish gifts on Mother’s Day. Now it’s time to turn our attention to the men in our lives. Put down those ties and boxers and get dad something he really wants and needs.
Though beards have become a bit of a thing in the past few years, shaving will never go out of style…and therefore neither will quality shaving products. Finding the perfect combination of shaving essentials that best suits a specific skin type can be tricky, and many men can’t be bothered with tricky skin care issues. Travel Beauty is here to “shave the day” by building a soup-to-nuts skin care and shaving supply kit, perfect for gifting. Spoil your favorite man (or yourself!) with our top-notch tools and smoothing, soothing products. He’ll never suffer through a scathing shave again.
A Great Shave Starts With a Clean Slate
Men’s skin produces more oil and sweat than women’s, so proper cleansing is important. The gentle yet effective B. Kamins Laboratories Vegetable Cleanser is the perfect pre-shave skin care step to start your shave with a totally clean slate. For a more robust cleaning, Lavido Purifying Facial Cleanser is a great all-natural choice. Follow the wash with Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes. These travel-friendly, use anytime/anywhere cleansing and toning wipes are saturated with Ursa Major’s 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic. 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic is a potent skin care cure-all that removes oil and grime, dissolves dead skin, clears blocked pores, and combats blemishes, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. These wipes can also be used post shave – a matter of preference! Use them regularly and they will deliver clearer, brighter, calmer skin.
Shaving Kit Essential: A Dream Cream
Your skin is now prepped and ready to be shaved. Even if your skin is not particularly sensitive, shaving can be harsh. Even those with sturdy skin can never go wrong with a shaving cream formulated for sensitive skin. Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street Collection Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin is a Travel Beauty favorite. It contains no parabens or allergens, making it especially suitable for even the most sensitive skin. A small amount easily works into a creamy lather that gives great glide and moisture; making a smooth shave a cinch every time.
Tools of the Trade: A Luxe Shaving Brush
Nothing upgrades your shave like a luxury handmade shaving brush. Using a shaving brush generates more lather, lifts the hair on your face, opens up your pores and naturally exfoliates your skin. All this leads to a closer shave with less irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs. Taylor Of Old Bond Street Pure Badger Shaving Brush in Imitation Ivory Travel Case is handmade with the finest quality hair. Its convenient travel case makes it easy to take with you anywhere you go.
Post-shave Skin Soothers
After shaving, pores need closing and skin needs soothing. Given their soothing and hydrating properties, you can follow your shave with Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes. They will also help close up your pores. Lavido Hydrating Facial Toner and Vine Care Water are great fixes for nics.
Last, slather on some Taylor of Old Bond Street Mr. Taylors Luxury Aftershave Balm or Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm. These high-performance moisturizers, both paraben free, are the perfect solutions for sensitivity, irritation, dryness and blemishes (including ingrown hairs). The powerful formulas contain active natural ingredients like witch hazel, frankincense and lavender to instantly soothe any problem areas and leave skin comfortable, hydrated…not to mention, handsome.
