Hope everyone is good and well.
First thing to say is …how is it November already? So in the pipeline there’s Halloween, Bonfire night and of course the Big C….CHRISTMAS! Also I’m on the brink of the grand bi-annual changing of my duvet from the summer weight to the winter version.
QVC HQ is a bustling hive of activity at the moment. Everyone is preparing for Christmas and it’s all practically in full flow. We tend to have lots of offers at the moment which is great if you’re still in the organising & planning stage of what to get for friends and family.
So ladies, we’re pretty good at buying for other females and we’re damn good at buying for ourselves but what about the males in your life? The hubby, the boyfriend, uncle, your bro, the nephew, new baby boy and don’t forget the step son! There’s so many that all need to be considered at Christmas.
Now I know there’s a place for pants and socks etc. but they deserve a little more. Take my Dad for example, he said he didn’t need or want skincare but once he tried some good quality specific men’s ranges like L’Occitane and Elemis he’s hooked and my brother is now a total addict! Both of them have noted a marked difference in their skin and the way it behaves particularly after shaving.
Anyway here’s some great value options and my ‘Top 5 Men’s Picks’ you might like to consider…
This is brilliant value at under £20 and includes the famous Ice-cool Foaming Shaving Gel which some of you will note I’ve had fun with in the past! I’ve no doubt some ladies will be nicking it to shave their legs! It also has the wonderfully invigorating Sharp Shower Gel and a male specific deep cleaning gel based Facial Wash. It’s the perfect kit for a guy.
The super podiatrist that is Margaret Dabbs has nailed this formula. With 40+ five star reviews and the brand behind the famous ‘Medi Pedi’, this is a winner! It’s actually unisex but awesome for sore, cracked, blistered skin, discoloured nails, sweat prone feet that perspire lots or sporty feet that get lots of use. Craig Rowe and I are obsessed with it, all our feet need TLC & protection. Maybe get a pot for the family home, even teenage boys can use this, it’s simple and easy for everybody. NO excuses for bad feet! 🙂
My Dad’s fave collection, these are enriched with ingredients to purify, soothe and hydrate the skin to prevent those irritations and feeling of tightness. They smell amazing too, a dapper choice for any gent.
Named after the door number on German Street in London this is a great classic cologne that’s hard not to like. Orange and Bergamot blended with Lavender and Neroli with a touch of spicy nutmeg thrown in. Clean, citric but with a warm edge…most women agree that this is how they want their man to smell, a fab choice for your boyfriend or husband.
And for the more natural choice this shouldn’t be overlooked. This brilliant Liz Earle Men’s grooming collection with shaving cream, moisturiser, face and body wash complete with a wash bag.
There’s obviously more on our website, check out the Men’s section and let me know if the males in your life like their skincare.
