Redken is a brand that usually comes up when we are talking about wonderful hair care products for women, but we can't forget they also have an amazing men's line. This men's line is full of perfect products to get your man or Father for Father's Day, so that he can be left feeling pampered and handsome. There are many men out there we know are not willing to buy professional hair care products for redkentwoinonethemselves, but even the manliest of men deserve to be spoiled for all that they do. Right now Redken is running a promotion that if you purchase 1 Clean Brew Shampoo and any 2 Redken for Men styling products, you get a free Redken for Men Travel Case and a travel size bottle of Redken for Men Grip Tight Holding Gel.

 

Here are some Redken products the Certified Fabulous team had a chance to review that we believe will make a wonderful Father's day gift. Redken for Men Clean Spice 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated to strengthen hair, and achieve a smooth and polished look. This is perfect for the man with a fast paced lifestyle. Certified Fabulous Team member Jessie had her husband try this 2-in-1 and he loved it. He works in a machine shop where everything from his feet to head gets covered in oil and this left his hair feeling superbly clean and smelling fresh.

Father's Day is the time to honor and remember the men who are greatly responsible for bringing us into this world. If you are lucky, you have spent many years with these men who have helped form and mold you into the person you are today. Throughout the years they have taught you right from wrong, how to work hard, treat others with respect, have love and compassion for all things, and possibly how to be an amazing parent yourself. These great men have taken care of us and it is their turn to be spoiled.

The Certified Fabulous team recently tried some elegant men's products that could be the perfect father's day gift to give your guy. First let's talk about GOÁ Fine Skincare and Shaving products: this is a beautifully put together brand that incorporates ancient skin and hair treatments, aromatherapy, and new technology to fortify and enhance the effects of their products. This is a natural skin care brand that delivers skin enriching benefits to create a healthy, radiant complexion. Our men recently had the pleasure of trying the GOÁ  Firming Shaving Cream from the Fine Ruffian Shaving collection.

This shaving cream is formulated as the ultimate prep cream for a wet or dry shave, providing a finer lather, ultra-hydration and anti-aging capabilities. It is created to shield the skin from irritation while firming and diminishing the look of expression lines thanks to the blend of botanical hyaluronic acid and rich conditioning oils. The formula feels amazing and goes on easily whether you use a shaving brush or your hands. His face will feel soft and luxurious and he will have no worry of razor bumps or irritation. Another great thing to love about this brand is they are 100% vegetarian, natural, nontoxic and do not test on animals. You can find the Firming Shaving cream at GOAcosmetics.com.

The DSC was founded by Michael Dubin, and entrepreneur who personally felt men's frustration with the price and experience of buying razors at the store. At the drugstore guys had to track down the clerk to unlock the razor fortress, only to pay exorbitant prices for razors. Dubin knew that this frustration was widespread. DSC officially launched in March 2012 to solve a simple problem for men: deliver high-quality razors for a couple of bucks a month to members, through a monthly subscription. DSC will soon be the easiest place for guys to get the things they use every day.

Who isn’t a huge fan of Peeps?!?!?! I love them and was totally stocked to try out a bunch of their new candy.

Everyone always used to associate PEEPS with Easter but for quite some time now they are brooding what they offer not only in types of candy but in apparel and accessories as well.  For those of you who like golfing there is PEEPS NDX Heat Nike Golf Balls these allow you to be more aggressive and attack more pins these make great greenside ball for everyone! The NDX Heat ball’s low-compression core technology offers a hot response and controlled flight for long, straight shots. The Ionomer cover is designed to control shots plus stay true and soft. Now when you are out playing with your PEEPS NDX Golf Balls you need to wear the PEEPS Men’s Embroidered Golf Shirt this shirt is available in Light Blue and Navy and sizes small through XL. The shirt is 100% Polyester, so it is a comfortable yet breathable shirt perfect for those hot days out on the golf course….of course you don’t have to just rock this shirt on the Golf course it’s a really nice looking shirt for many different occasions.

Time to talk about my favorite part the food J PEEPS now has the PEEPS Minis that you can get in Chocolate, Vanilla Crème, Strawberry, and Sour Watermelon flavors. These are great for a little snack and come in a handy reseal able bag so they will stay nice and fresh and delicious. I have to say the Chocolate was my favorite but they were all quite good, and I found myself snacking a lot on them and the kids absolutely loved them. And the small chicks just look cute.  Then there is the new PEEPS Sweet Lemonade Chicks this chick has a blend of sweet fluffy marshmallow with the taste of fresh squeezed lemonade for a truly refreshing summer treat. One of the girls I work with said “wow! that’s the best PEEP I have ever had” after trying these. Another great thing about this treat is every purchase helps support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, this foundation raises money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures. To encourage and empower others especially children to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and is a great day to remember and or appreciate your father and show them a little extra love. Sometimes it seems really hard to pick out the right gift. I usually find myself searching online for hours and at the end still not sure what I am going to buy. And it's not that I don't know my father well, he is the manly man kind of guy and it seems difficult sometimes finding things that he doesn't have that he would truly enjoy. I was excited when I came across this Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver because I am pretty sure my dad has the same electric razor that he has been using since the 90s…possibly the 80s!  I was certain that needed to be replaced. What a great idea something he will use a lot and enjoy!

Panasonic ES8243A shaverThe Panasonic ES8243A Men’s 4-Blade Wet/Dry Electric Shaver is a amazing gift.  Not only will this give a extremely close shave but it’s so simple to use and clean. The Panasonic ES8243A has a easy to read digital liquid crystal display that indicates battery charge level by 10 steps and has cleaning reminders. To clean you simply hold the razor under running water and activate the Turbo mode. The razor accelerates up to 17,000 RPM and vibrates off any remaining whiskers. This Panasonic Razor also comes equipped with a convenient travel case for the man on the go.

My dad was amazed how close of a shave the Panasonic ES8243A Electric Shaver gave him and the length of time the battery held a charge, you can expect about 45 mins of use. Nanotechnology is used to polish the industry’s sharpest 30-degree blades to give that close shave. It also operates at 13,000 rpm to cut through the thickest of beards…my Dads nick name is Fuzzy so if you can imagine the power of this shaver really came in handy. It is also a wet/dry shaver which allows you to use it in the shower as well which is a convenient feature. Overall my dad is extremely happy with this shaver and looks forward to using it for many years to come.

After I solved the dilemma of what to get my father, I then had to decide what to get the father of my little man. I thought why not stick with the same concept for him and give him the Boots No7 Men Calming Anti-friction Shave gel, Boots No7 Men Calming post shave Recovery, and Boots No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturizer. I am a huge fan of all the Boots products I have tried in the past and was pretty certain that Jake would enjoy the men's products as well. 
No7 Calming Anti friction shave gel

Boots No7 Men Calming Anti-friction Shave Gel is for sensitive skin and is hypo-allergenic and gives you a great hydrated smooth shave….and for the ladies who like to occasionally borrow their men’s things I can tell you this gives you a amazing hydrated feel to your legs too.  The Boots No7 Men Calming Post Shave Recovery Balm is also for sensitive skin and will help your skin stay hydrated.  I am sure that almost everyone has had a shave where they are wishing for a cooling balm because of razor burn. This will help cool and calm any irritation and keep your skin feeling hydrated all day. Jake has always had issues with getting dry skin and razor bumps so he usually just trimmed his beard and left the rest alone. He was pleasantly surprised by using this combination he didn't get any razor bumps which for him is unheard of. He is extremely happy to have a shaving routine in place that keeps his skin bump free. And I am happy that he doesn't look like the guys from Duck Dynasty all the time :) Then to keep that nice smooth face from wrinkling from the suns rays there is  Boots No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturiser It is a anti-aging moisturizer which combines the unique protecting and renewing ingredients found in their renowned protect and perfect intense anti-aging serum. This will help defend against premature ageing and from UVA and UVB rays.

The weather's warmer, you're getting more active, why not push yourself even further and really start to feel good about your activity level. It's not easy to do on your own, and there's always the "I'll do it tomorrow" excuse that prevents you from really maintaining an active lifestyle. But if you have Fitbit, today counts for today and there's no putting it off. I recently got a Fitbit and I love it! I never really knew why they had become so popular, and I sort of viewed them as a fad that would blow over and onto the next fitness device. But I think this one will be around for a while and I certainly plan on using it for a good amount of time. 

So what is Fitbit? Fitbit has a handful of advanced products that will track your activity level and your sleep. I currently have the Fitbit Flex - wireless activity tracker & sleep wristband. This slim wristband tracks your steps, distance, calories burned during the day, active minutes,  and will track the hours you sleep and your sleep quality during the night. I sync my Fitbit to my phone (just download the app and follow the steps to set up), so that I can check my progress throughout the day. I can also sign in and check my stats on Fitbit.com.Fitbit

This little wristband holds me accountable - if I don't do anything active that day, it will reflect. But if I reach my daily steps, it will provide a celebratory buzz & light up, letting me know I've reached my goals for the day. Wear it everyday and you can gain a good sense of your activity level. I work in an office setting, and am mostly at my computer during the day, so I wasn't getting a lot of steps. I knew that my activity level was low, but to see it reflected in the counts of steps and even in a graph, made me really push myself to get out for a walk or run after work to get closer to my daily goals. I knew that I should be doing some type of physical activity after work, but nothing was really pushing me to do so. Now I check my steps every day and actually want to reach my goals. I get competitive, even with myself and this little tracker. I want to do better and see my steps count up, raise my activity level and burn more calories. And the only way to increase those numbers, if by being active!

I find the Fitbit Flex to be very motivating. You are working with and against yourself. I always want to do better than the day before, and even if that doesn't happen, it pushes me to work harder for the days to come. Fitbit also awards you with daily, weekly or lifetime achievements. When you reach a new goal, you are awarded with a badge! Just another way to recognize your hard work! And if you're really competitive, you can share and compete with friends. You can compare stats and see how you rank against friends in the number of steps. 

Fitbit Flex will also track your sleep and sleep quality. Wear it throughout the night and it will track the number of times you Fit bit blueare restless and the times you are awake. It gives you a good understanding of how well/poorly you sleep, and you can make your own adjustments to sleep better. For me, I always thought I was getting a good 8 hours - which I really need to function well the next day - but my Fitbit was showing me that I usually get seven and a half hours, due to the number of times I wake up and am restless. Another great aspect: you can set silent alarms! The Fitbit will gently buzz to wake you up. I hate alarm clocks and I hate waking up, but with the silent alarm, I wasn't startled by a loud alarm, and I woke up every time I used the silent alarm feature.

I remember the first time I saw Philosophy products at a Sephora.  It was a number of years ago, and I remember being drawn to the sophisticated simplicity of the packaging.  When you pick up a box or a bottle, you are met with a fun and quirky Philosophy saying, and you can’t help but buy what they have to sell.  Philosophy just keeps getting better and better, and I had the opportunity to try out, and of course love a few of what they have to offer.Philosophy microdelivery exfoliating wash

It’s no secret I love to exfoliate.  I don’t wear make-up on a regular basis because of the build-up it leaves on my skin.  Unfortunately for me, I have had to play “grown-up” a lot in the past month, which means attending work functions and meetings more than usual.   Of course this means I have to fix my hair, wear outfits that don’t consist of hoody sweatshirts and leggings, and of course, apply a full face of makeup so that my expression is not one of tired negativity (it’s not my fault, even when I’m not tired, or grouchy, I’ve reached the age where I look WAAAY better with a full face).  With all of this makeup wearing, I’m finding myself yearning to exfoliate daily, which can be a problem as most facial scrubs are not gentle enough to be used every day. 

Philosophy Micro-Delivery Exfoliating Wash is the perfect scrub for a gal like me, who must remove every single vestige of makeup in order to really feel as though my skin is clean.  This scrub fits the bill. Made with diametaceous earth, my absolute favorite physical exfoliator because the particles are fine, and the earth is a natural product.  Diametaceous earth is a winner because although it does a wonderful job with is fine particles of scrubby buts, it is gentle on skin and feels amazing.  This scrub also contains fine natural ingredients such as Apple Amino Acids, Borage Seed Oil and Vitamin E, all of which nourishes and moisturizes the skin, while providing antioxidant benefits. I love this scrub because it is effective, yet gentle enough to use every day, helping remove dirt and makeup.

Philosophy razor sharpPhilosophy also offers a really cool shave gel called Razor Sharp.  Razor Sharp is a really pretty blue shave gel in a Philosophy-esque cool, simple clear bottle.   The “philosophy” as read on the front of the bottle is quirky and fun “looking razor sharp isn’t as important as being razor sharp.  We are bombarded with information regarding the importance of working out in order to keep ourselves looking and feeling our best.  Only when we “work in” do things actually begin to work out”. 

Razor Sharp contains soothing botanical blends, skin conditioning agents and can be used by both men and women (shhh, I have not had the “opportunity” to share yet).  I love the way this shave gel smells, clean and soapy, and quite frankly, masculine.  It brings me back to the days when I first started shaving my legs (I was 14, and really had no business shaving my legs, but what can you do).  I would sneak my dad’s Barbasol shave cream into the shower.  Razor Sharp is the high end version of Barbasol, but the clean masculine scent in the shower, whilst shaving my legs (now it should be my business more often than it is I’m ashamed to say).  This is a great shave gel, however, and although it is not recommended for sensitive skin (I’m moderately sensitive), my experience was one of smooth, nourished legs after using Razor Sharp. philosophy hope in a jar spf
