Have a guy on your shopping list and want to give them something other than a tie or socks?...OK. Maybe you all are a bit more creative than I am when it comes to guy gifts, but since I like to get all my shopping done at one store I thought I would pick up some "beauty" items for the guys on my holiday gift list.
There is a great 3 piece set for any guy wanting a "sinfully" good shave. It's called the Billy Jealousy Shave3Some and it is 3, three ounce bottles of Billy Jealousy's top and essential shaving products!
Mr. Sith LOVES the Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream. Even though he is growing a beard and does not plan to shave it until the Washington Redskins or the Washington Capitals win a championship (Which means he's looking at a really loooooong beard.) he does shave his head. Since the skin on his noggin is sensitive he found the Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream to be the best at reducing nicks and cuts while shaving his dome. So that's why I got him this set. It's perfect for travel or home.
The first part of the set is the Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatment.
This creamy gel recreates the classic barbershop hot towel compress with its water activated heating pre-shave cream. Just massage Hot Towel onto wet skin using circular motions and the heating sensation is activated. The heat combined with the conditioning oils helps soften a tough beard (or in Mr. Sith's case, tough hair on his head) making it so much easier to shave. Best yet. you don't need to rinse it off before applying the Hydroplane Shave Cream.
The Hydroplane Shave Cream is a dream! I steal this stuff from Mr. Sith all the time. In fact we have a HUGE 33.8 oz industrialized sized bottle of it in our shower. Not only does Hydroplane Shave Cream provide superior lubrication for a clean and close shave, the rich foamless cream is comprised of millions of water-soluble, micro-silicone beads which become increasingly slicker when combined with water. The result: a smooth, moisturizing shave that doesn't irritate razor burn, nicks, bumps, and ingrown hairs. WIN!
Last but not least is the Shaved Ice After-Shave Balm.
Mr. Sith is really picky about the lotions he uses on his face and head. I created a product Diva when I introduced him to a $60 a tube men's face cream. It's all he would use. Thank goodness The Shaved Ice After-Shave Balm is now his new favorite! It's less expensive and comes in a much larger container! This refreshing after-shave gel is the perfect ending to the shaving ritual because it immediately cools and comforts the skin, while providing pain blocking benefits! It also helps balance the skin's pH level, which further reduces irritation. The scent comes from the essential oils of orange, grapefruit, lime ginger and bergamot, which leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed.
The Billy Jealousy Shave3Some retails for $40 USD and is available at billyjealousy.com, Nordstrom, Beauty.com, ULTA and other retailers.
