Here’s a great Father’s Day Gift Idea!
Schaf Skin Care For Men is Canada’s first organic men’s skincare brand. Peter Schafrick is the Founder and CEO. He wanted to create a skin care line for men that was uncomplicated, safe and SIMPLE. Schaf products are nearly 100% naturally derived.
All Schaf products have no fragrance added, so as not to compete with cologne. Personally, I think all skin care should be fragrance-free, unless it’s natural fragrances form ingredients. Everything is toxin-free, colour-free, paraben-free, no sodium laureate sulfate, and no artificial colours. What you DO get are natural, botanical extracts designed to improve skin. Naturally!
The first thing that’s pretty amazing about Schaf Skincare for Men, is that each product has an airless pump delivery system. You gotta love that! All skincare should come like that if you ask me. I always wonder how long my skincare that’s just packaged in jars is really actually effective. I doubt the ingredients stay potent for longer than a couple of months when they’re constantly exposed to air.
The second thing I love is that it’s a simple, four-step system (Shave, Hydrate, Cleanse, Scrub) that every guy will find easy to use.
Schaf Cleanse($22)is a gentle cleanser with a soothing toner as well. It has a mild foaming action that comes from plant extracts of corn, coconut, and sugar beets emulsified to give a creamy consistency. My hubby says it leaves his skin feeling clean and refreshed, and that would be the chamomile, aloe, cucumber and Japanese Green Tea doing that for him! So many good ingredients in a cleanser! I tried it as well, and he’s right! Really refreshing!
Schaf Scrub($25) is a mild, foaming gel packed with white lava particles and ground apricot seed. The lava is from the Auvergne region of France that’s famous for healing spas and bottled water. The ground apricot seed is organic of course. The scrub is meant to be used every few days to buff and exfoliate skin cells and clear out pores. Smoother, clearer skin is the result and that means a closer and better shave. Every guy should use a scrub I think. It’s such a necessary step that a lot of them don’t do, but I understand why they don’t want to use one. I mean shaving your face every day is already making it sensitive, so the last thing you want to do is scrub away at it. Which is why I told my hubby to use it at night a couple of times a week. Now, he loves it and has noticed that his skin doesn’t break out as much.
Schaf Hydrate($35)is made with organic shea and aloe to moisturize. There’s also avocado, organic coconut, sunflower and pumpkin seed oils to improve skin texture. There’s cucumber and mallow extract to reduce skin irritation. Vitamin E, comfrey and elder extract are in there as well to help soothe and calm skin. And if all of that wasn’t enough for ya’, there’s even Matrixyl 3000, the anti-aging peptide us girls all know and love. My hubby loves that it absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave his skin feeling greasy after. He has oily, rosacea-prone skin, but this has really calmed down the redness.
Schaf Shave Cream($20) is packed with naturally derived vegetable and coconut lubricants which soften the beard and provide optimum slip for a close, comfortable shave. It protects the skin from shaving irritation, razor burn and razor bumps too. What amazed my hubby is that you need very little water when using the shave cream, just a wet face. The thick cream is really moisturizing and sticks to the skin so that the shaving blade doesn’t skip and nick the face. A smooth, moisturized face is the result! Really good stuff!
Heck, Schaf Skin Care For Men really impressed me! The ingredients are pretty amazing, and I’ve been sneaking some of the products into my routine haha! I really like them! Except for the shaving cream-I don’t shave my face. Yet. 😀 😀
What does your hubby, boyfriend, significant other use for skin care? If they’re still using soap on their poor faces, do them a favour and get them some Schaf skin care. Please! I think they’ll love it!
