Our men's gift guide is here! Snap up one of these too easy grooming buys for your guy now to beat the Christmas rush and help him feel (and, if we're honest - look) a whole lot lovier...
If your guy is of the suit and tie variety, chances are he needs to look clean cut and shaven almost each day. And like we ladies know, shaving causes ingrown hairs - sigh! To help him avoid these nasty little blockages, gift him a beautiful face scrub. Exfoliation will not only help to keep his whiskers from getting trapped, it'll also keep his skin in good nick too. I love the Indio Facial Scrub - it's gentle enough for everyday use, but still offers a great exfoliation. You'll want to steal it everyday!
Does your guy love the beach life? Time to think about his skin for him and all the UV exposure it's getting. Surely he has tonnes of sunscreen at his disposal, so go the extra mile and grab him a nourishing anti-ager instead. The Protocell Cream by EmerginC is designed to repair and reverse environmental damage to the skin as well as provide serious anti-aging benefits. Stem cells from apples in Switzerland, Argan oil from Morocco and French cider apples from Brittany and Normandy lend their moisture and resistance to age directly to your skin - fancy! Best of all, you can steal a little of it too!
While we don't advocate a Shane Warne glam-over, sporty guys often need a little help in the grooming department thanks to rushed showers after training sessions and not too much TLC for their skin. Why not give him a bit of an ego boost and give a nod to his athleticism by gifting him the Akin PureMAN Visibly Fit 24 Hour Moisturiser. It deeply hydrates and softens even the toughest of skin, and improves that dull, dry and tight feeling of skin that's been a little neglected.
It's not only women's eyes that could do with a dose of nourishment - even they guys get crows feet with age, and nothing is more 'aging' than a lack of sleep. Whether he is a new dad, or an older dad, chances are you've kept him awake at night worrying about you long after your infant years are up. Gift him an eye cream to keep his skin smooth and soft. Yes, many men appreciate this even if they don't vocalise it! The Absolution La Soin Regard Anti-Ageing Eye Contour Booster may sound uber fancy but what it really is a highly concentrated formula that improves the look of your eyes and provide wakefulness upon application. The package is small, black and discreet too, so he won't feel too overwhelmed using an 'eye cream'.
Does your guy freak out when it comes to grooming? Maybe because he simply doesn't know where to start! To get him in on the fun, gift him bellobox. He'll get 6-8 of the best new grooming prods on the market, sent straight to him. He can try them out at home and never face the intimidation of the department store counters again. Oh, and it's just $30 per quarter (every 3 months) so it'll feel like Christmas last all year long...
Have you got your guy a Christmas present yet? Or have you ever bought him 'beauty' before? Did he like it? Do you steal it? Let me know! - Lauren
