2013 Father’s Day Gift Guide: Grooming Products

Our first roundup of Father’s Day gift ideas involves a traditional area with grooming products. Of course, we’re hoping you’ll do better than that cheap aftershave you bought dad when you were a kid. And for more great suggestions, be sure to check out the other categories in our Father’s Day gift guide.

Philips Norelco Click & Style

Here’s one for the dad who appreciates that modern grooming habits go well beyond his face. That might be an awkward subject for some dads, but for the right guy, this handy shaver can be a great gift. With the new Philips Norelco Click & Style, men can get a super-flexible electric shaver that can handle all their grooming needs with one convenient tool. The Click & Style is a complete all-in-one system equipped with three attachments that are easy to click on and off for shaving, facial styling, or bodygrooming with a single product. We tested all of them and the ease of use was impressive. The two-headed shaver with ComfortCut blades gives guys the close shave that they would expect from Norelco products. For guys who want some stubble or more growth instead of the all-clean look, they can snap on the beard styler with 5 lengths for the perfect stubble or a neatly trimmed beard. Finally, the skin-friendly bodygroom shaver gives a man the flexibility for a close and comfortable shave or a trim on all areas below the neck. The Philips Norelco Click & Style also features 100% waterproof technology so men can trim, style and shave wherever they want in wet or dry settings.

Portable USB Shaver from ShaveTech

Here’s a great gift men that travel a lot or need a shaver they can keep in their briefcase. This portable electric shaver from ShaveTech is one of the more unique and interesting products we’ve reviewed in a while. It’s a USB shaver, so it’s ideal for traveling as you can charge it anywhere in or out of the US if you have access to a computer or other USB port. When not charging, the ShaveTech USB port flips up directly into the razor itself. The shaver is no bigger than a typical smart phone so it will fit anywhere from your pocket to your briefcase. The sleek and simple design makes it very easy to use. The top slides on and off revealing the foil shaver head, and the shave with this super-light unit is nice and comfortable.

Dollar Shave Club introduces One Wipe Charlies

The gang at Dollar Shave Club created plenty of buzz with their first video featuring founder Michael Dubin that was titled “Our Blades Are F***ing Great.” Now they’re introducing a new product in their quest to “own the bathroom” and you can see this new and hilarious video above for the product that’s aptly referred to as Product #2.

The new product isn’t very glamorous – it basically helps you clean up your rear end. One Wipe Charlies are flushable wipes, which are apparently growing in popularity, even among men. Who knew? According to their website, “51% percent of US men 18-45 use flushable wipes. Yes, you read that right. Half of men are using wipes to get clean, 16% of them use wipes instead of toilet paper.” Mr. Dubin makes this observation: “89% of wipe users are “very/extremely satisfied” with their cleanliness after using a wipe vs. only 58% of TP-only users. This should sound logical: If you stepped barefoot in a hot pile of dog poo, would you smear it off with a dry paper towel? No, you’d take a shower. Well, this isn’t your foot, it’s your center of gravity. Men who want to live the True Clean – the One Clean – use wipes.” They were kind enough to send us some, we tried them them, and we can safely say the improvement was quite noticeable.

So eliminate those skid marks forever and give One Wipe Charlies are try.

  

Dollar Shave Club

This is a great promo video for this new product/service. If you want more than one blade you’ll be paying more than $1 per month, but this idea is pretty cool. Check out DollarShaveClub.com for more info.
