Sunday 18 June is Father’s Day, the perfect opportunity for us to spoil Dad and show our appreciation for all that he does. Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for, and if you find yourself once again reaching for quirky socks or a soap-on-a-rope, it’s time to up your game.
Dads might not always show it, but they like to smell and look good – just like everyone else. This Father’s Day, we recommend adding to Dad’s grooming and health routines with some top quality products to help him look and feel his best.
Not sure where to begin? Here’s our selection of products we think he’ll love.
No matter what the occasion, a fragrance has got to be one of the best gifts one can receive. If Dad enjoys fine fragrances, look no further than Mercedes Benz. If he’s a bit of a free spirit, we recommend Mercedes Benz The Move Live The Moment EDP (R1395.00 for 100ml). A scent that encapsulates the spirit of freedom, it consists of gourmand and oriental notes like amber, sage, geranium, ginger, moss, incense and benzoin. If Dad enjoys the finer things in life, he’ll love Mercedes Benz For Men Ultimate EDP (R1495.00 for 120ml). This quirky and off-beat blend results in an ambery, aromatic woody scent. Fragrance notes include lavender, cedar leaf, apple, mandarin, nutmeg, sandalwood, cypress and patchouli.
On a budget? Then we recommend looking to Superdry for a fragrance this Father’s Day. They offer three eau de toilette fragrances at a really affordable R495.00 for 100ml: Kyoto, an exhilarating zesty and aromatic scent, Soho, a soulful and smooth scent, and Detroit, a warm woody scent. If Dad prefers a body mist or spray, we recommend Superdry Athletic Body Spray (R84.99) for its dynamic and zesty scent, Superdry RE:start Body Spray (R84.99) for its refreshing scent or Superdry Pacific Body Spray (R84.99) for its citrusy marine scent.
Dads are known for keeping things simple, and that includes their skincare regimes. While Mom would probably love a multi-step skincare routine, Dad is likely to prefer a two (or maximum) three-step regime instead. Creightons Skincare offers simple-yet-effective products filled with nourishing ingredients, so that you can reap all the benefits without spending too much time in front of the mirror. We recommend the Creightons Skincare H2O Boost range, which is filled with hydrating hyaluronic acid to boost and lock in moisture. For a super simple regime, try H2O Boost Foaming Gel Wash (R119.95), H2O Boost Day Gel (R179.95) and H2O Boost Overnight Mask (R179.95). If you think Dad can handle an additional step, then the H2O Boost Hyaluronic Serum (R180.95) is a lovely addition to an already great regime.
What is a grooming regime without shaving and facial hair products? Clubman is a trusted grooming brand for men and offers a full range of products for shaving and facial hair maintenance. If Dad has a beard, we recommend treating him to Clubman 3PC Beard Pack (R419.95), which contains the best-selling 2-In-1 Beard Conditioner, Beard Balm, and Beard Oil. If he prefers a clean-shaven look, then shaving products will be right up his alley. Clubman Shave Cream (R179.95), Shave Oil(R179.95), and Shave Butter (R229.95) are filled with nourishing ingredients to enhance his shaving experience and better the health of his skin.
Help Dad style his hair with a styling aid from Gatsby, a leading hair styling brand hailing from one of the style capitals of the world – Japan. They have three styling pomades available to help you achieve your desired look: Gatsby Styling Pomade Supreme Grease (R119.95) is suitable for slicked-back retro styles, Gatsby Styling Pomade Supreme Hold (R119.95) is suitable for trendy roll-up and pompadour styles and Gatsby Styling Pomade Matt Moulder (R119.95) is perfect for neo-classic styles with a matte finish.
Keep Dad’s health in check by ensuring he consumes his daily dose of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. If he has a sweet tooth, he’ll love NutriPure adult gummies. Packed with vitamins and minerals, these delicious fruity chews are free from artificial ingredients, sweeteners, and added sugars, and are filled with natural goodness. We recommend NutriPure Multi-Vitamin Complete (R145.00) for all-around health and NutriPure Immune Support (R145.00) to build and strengthen his immune system.
Is Dad a tea drinker? Up his tea game with SELA Teas, a range of delicious powerful and healthy teas filled with formulated with traditional African herbs African Traditional Herbs. Each tea is formulated to address a specific concern or ailment help relieve a specific health ailment, and contains nutrient-dense natural ingredients that have been used for generations thanks to their healing power and health benefits. There is a wide variety of variants on offer (so you can select something perfectly suited to Dad’s health needs). We recommend SELA Health Tea (R49.99) which has been formulated to strengthen the immune system and SELA Energy Tea (R49.99) which helps support the body’s energy levels. SELA is also available in a Strong Man Range (from R89.99) which helps to boost male libido. Live better with Sela, learn more about the products by visiting the website at www.sela.co.za.
Help Dad keep his pearly whites in tip-top condition with effective oral hygiene products that clean, strengthen and protect. White Glo offers a wide range of at-home oral hygiene and whitening products that are safe, effective, and affordable. We recommend treating Dad to a couple of products from the Charcoal range: White Glo Charcoal + Baking Soda Maximum White Toothpaste and Brush (R79.99) is specially formulated to protect against cavities and decay and whitens yellow discolouration on tooth enamel while keeping your mouth healthy and your breath fresh. White Glo Charcoal Deep Stain Remover Mouthwash (R84.99) not only freshens breath by eliminating the bacteria that causes it but also removes deep stains thanks to the adsorbent properties of activated charcoal. And lastly, try White Glo Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder (R180.00), a deep tooth stain remover. Sweet mint-flavoured activated charcoal absorbs superficial stains left on teeth by food and beverages like tea, coffee, and wine.
Whatever Dad’s preferences or personality, you can’t go wrong with good quality grooming and health products this Father’s Day!
