For the dad with sensitive skin
Stresses on the skin from shaving can cause redness, nicks, cuts, tugging, pulling, ingrown hairs and bumps. To address the cause, Gillette has released its innovative Gillette SkinGuard razor, which uses SkinGuard technology positioned between two optimally spaced blades to gently smooth and flatten the skin away from the razor blades during the shave. This ensures that hairs are trimmed at the surface level, reducing tug and pull, guarding sensitive skin from irritation. Additionally, Gillette has also released PURE by Gillette, which has zero alcohol, dyes, parabens, and sulfates, specially designed to protect against irritation on sensitive skin during the shave. Consumers can purchase the new Gillette SkinGuard and PURE today at all major retailers nationally.
For the sophisticated dad

In olfactory terms, Poker Face lies within the Woody-Fougere realm. The game opens with a fresh introduction of citrus and mint notes, accented with a hint of natural violet and lavender. As the challenge develops, we are charmed with unbridled masculinity by way of spices such as cardamom and black pepper, giving Poker Face an exciting, risky heart. The final suite wins the hand, by seducing us with patchouli, tonka bean and exotic wafts of cedarwood. Poker Face is for those cool risk takers, probably the most charming man you know. He likes to play the game, he’s smart and he knows how to win. Available now at My Chemist & Chemist Warehouse (RRP $59).
