NO7 MEN SKINCARE
Women know the benefits of good skincare and so does your stylish guy. One of the most popular skincare lines out of the UK and one of my personal faves, No7 recently launched No7 Men skincare line exclusively in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart. The full product line features six products in total. My top picks are the No7 Energising Face Wash ($13), a “gentle, soap- and oil-free formula that removes dirt and impurities without stripping the skin’s natural moisture”; No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum ($29), a “powerful serum that works to reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles”and No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturiser SPF 15 ($26) to “protect against the sun’s UV rays and its aging effects on the skin”. Get them all to gift your guy at your local Shoppers.
TURO CAR RENTAL
Has your dad always dreamed of owning a Telsa or Lexus? Why not give him a day in his dream car with Turo, Canada’s first peer-to-peer car rental marketplace. They work essentially like Airbnb, but for cars. Cars start at $24 a day right up to the luxury cars at $198 a day. Yeah, you’re now daddy’s real favourite.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, new and old!
