If my experience is anything to go by, men don’t tend to spend too long picking out their skincare choices, instead they just tend to graze at what’s already in the bathroom. So, if your dad has similar habits, Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to protect your stash whilst also earning some major brownie points! A sure-fire win is Molton Brown’s new Ultra-Light Hydrator, an amazing moisturiser if your father suffers from slightly oily skin.
Packaged in a gorgeous brushed glass bottle, this looks like something you would find in an upmarket hotel. You only need a pump or two of the Hydrator, so it will last for months, and it has the loveliest slightly citrus scent. The formula is also very lightweight, which means skin doesn’t look slick or greasy after application yet keeps hydrating throughout the day!
Molton Brown Ultra-Light Hydrator is priced at £26.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).
We’re in the short-stretch in the run up to Father’s Day, but don’t worry, I’ve still got a tonne of ideas for present ideas which will go down a storm! Calvin Klein’s Eternity Night for Men is a perfect choice if your dad is a fan of deeper, woody aromatic scent. First of al I love the smoky ombre bottle, it’s so beautifully understated, I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to show this off on a dressing table! The Eau de Toilette smells quite dark and smoky when first applied. The notes of coriander and plum are spiced up with a touch of paprika which feels exotic and unusual.
As the scent develops and deepens, some more herbal notes of lavender and clary sage become clearer, meaning that Eternity Night smells beautifully clean. As Eternity Night continues to wear, the base notes of sandalwood and cedar round out the fragrance, meaning it smells incredibly warm and comforting. The wear-time of the fragrance is great, my lucky tester said he got 8 hours easily, and he still smelled scrummy when I saw him in the evening.
