Father’s Day is Sunday! Not to worry Kiehl’s has you covered.

I love to get my dad good skincare products for Father’s Day. If left to his own devices he would be washing his face with Irish Spring. Well Father’s Day is right around the corner but I have a few great items from Kiehl’s that I know any Dad would love.

kiehls oil eliminator face wash

I love this cleanser and could use it myself. It smells so fresh and clean and is great for waking up in the morning. The Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash is a clear gel with micro beads for gentle exfoliation every time he washes his face. You only need a small amount so this huge tube will last a long time. A great cleanser for the warmer months ahead!

k oil eliminator toner

If the guy on your list deals with oily skin and mid day shine he will love this. In fact after trying it I love it so much I might have to get a bottle of my own.  The spray comes out in a fine mist and feels so refreshing on my skin. Its a great idea to skip the bottle and cotton pad, the ease of use of a spray toner is a huge selling point.

Balanced Guru Scalp Detox


When we have troubled hair we tend to treat the hair  and skip treating the root of the issue, our scalps. Balanced guru has created a unique scalp detox. Just a few drops of this treatment comprised of astringents and essential oils and you can start balancing your tired scalp.

Scalp detox will detoxify and cleanse your scalp while soothing itchy, flaky skin. My scalp tends more the the oily side and I love how clean and fresh this made my head feel. The oil is really light closer to a toner consistency then oil. A few drops and I massage it into my scalp and right away my scalp feels cleaner and the fresh scent is invigorating.

After a weeks use my scalp feels so much better. I find the roots of my hair don’t feel as oily at the end of the day and I just love the way it makes my skin feel. I also love using this on my kids, a few drops and their hair smells great and no more itchy heads.
