Okay so I was planning to feature Kiss My Face 4-in-1 Green Tea & Bamboo Moisture Shave* and Tom’s of Maine Men’s Long Lasting Deodorant in Mountain Spring* in my Father’s Day Gift Guides but unfortunately they only arrived after Father’s Day–which is what I get for living in a rural area on the (near) end of the country. But they are great options from natural brands, so I’m going to share them with you anyway, because Father’s Day isn’t the only day you have to buy a gift for a male loved one. Besides, both of these products are basic, affordable and definitely not exclusive to men, so I’m not even convinced you need an excuse to pick them up–even if it’s for yourself.
Kiss My Face 4-in-1 Green Tea & Bamboo Moisture Shave is free of ingredients like parabens, phtalates, SLS, preservatives, animal ingredients. It’s also cruelty free and biodegradable. Did I mention it smells fantastic? Kiss My Face Moisture Shave is a light cream that really lathers well and has a fresh scent from the green tea and bamboo. I think this would be a great choice for sensitive skin and the pump format is very convenient for the shower or bathroom counter. I think the Kiss My Face Moisture Shave is definitely a more moisturizing, nicer option for shaving than the usual watery shower gel option I opt for.
Tom’s of Maine Men’s Long Lasting Deodorant in Mountain Spring is also cruelty free, free of artificial flavours, fragrances, preservatives, aluminum and PG. The brand also strives for sustainable practices, and 10% of their profits go to human and environmental causes. This Tom’s of Maine Deodorant is intended for men, but I’m not sure why besides for the “flatter” packaging because this great, clean scent would work perfect on men or women. I often sweat enough that I choose an antiperspirant over a deodorant but I’m definitely interested in trying more aluminum-free products.
Both Kiss My Face and Tom’s of Maine are brands you can feel good about purchasing, and their deodorant and shave cream are great products to start with, either as a gift (I’m sharing mine with my mom, who is very excited) or for yourself! What are your favourite early-friendly brands?
