Get Dad Looking Fine this Summer with Trade Secrets! #Review #Giveaway ~ CAN 07/28


Father’s Day may have just passed us by, but that does not mean the pampering can’t happen throughout the year. My other half does a lot for our family, and even though he does not like to say so, he likes to be surprised with gifts now and then. Since he also likes to look his best, and Trade Secrets asked him to try some of their products to help to keep him looking fine on Father’s Day or any other day. He could not wait to see the treasure trove of items he would get to try!

Below are the products Trade Secrets sent my guy to review:

With a family of five, hair care products are staples in our home. This is especially rue of shampoo and conditioner. We find that we run out of them quickly. My other half was happy to see that we received a dynamic duo that are all for him.

The American Crew Daily Shampoo is made to hydrate hair and battle dry and flaky scalp conditions. It also helps to restore hair and scalp‘s natural moisture balance. This allows for hair growth and cleanliness while avoiding feeling a greasy feel to hair.

The American Crew Daily Conditioner continues where the shampoo left off. It is an enhanced condition that moisturizes the scalp and helps to strengthen hair. This conditioner is easy to wash out, so your hair feels soft and is ready to be styled.

My guy liked using this shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo has a light and woodsy scent, while the conditioner has a hint of a minty scent. After he used them, he found that it felt lighter, softer and easier to manage.

After his shower, my guy likes to make sure his face looks good. He has a beard, so he likes to keep it trim. I was not sure which product he would like to use, so I chose two that I thought he would love using.

When in a hurry, I thought he could use the American Crew Precision Shave Gel. This gel does not create a foam and is clear, and it is great to use to remove hair from the neck, face, sideburns or head. This product is also ideal for sensitive skin.

My other half liked that there was not much of a scent to this product. He also liked that he could use this shave gel without having to worry about staining his clothing if he forgot to shave before leaving home.

For days when he is not in a rush, the American Crew Moisturizing Shave Cream is a great product to use. Vitamins, minerals and hydrating oils are used in this formula to rebuild skin and keep it moisturized. The shave cream also allows for a superior glide to help eliminate irritation and cuts. It is recommended for normal to dry skin.

My guy was pleased that the cream stayed in placed while he shaved. This made it quicker for him to shave as he did not have to worry about the cream dripping from his face. He also felt less irritation after using this product and the skin on his face felt smoother.

One of the last things my other half likes to do is to coif his hair. This way, he looks good from head to toe before walking out the door. The AG Waxx Gloss Pomade helps to give hair an intense shine, separation and a polished finish. It also works hard to resist humidity and to smooth flyaway strands.

He was really happy to have this pomade. He really likes to have his hair look on point, and this product helped him achieve the looks he was attempted. The coconut scent was an added bonus. It made his hair smell nice without being overpowering.

This bevy of great products are fabulous to have, but do you know what would be great to have? A way to store them. This is where the Large Men’s Travel Bag comes in handy. It is a sturdy and gorgeous bag from Danielle Montana. This toiletry bag is also roomy, allowing for your guy to be able to carry all of the previously mentioned products with room to spare at home or while on the road. The exterior is made of a soft faux leather. The interior sports a handy pocket to carry small items you want kept safe from bottles, jars and other containers within the bag.

This bag was perfect for my other half to get. He loved the look and the size of this bag. It feels a bit weathered, giving it a worn look that he loves. The interior pocket was great to store his razors away from our kids once he puts his bag on a shelf they cannot reach.

All of these products from Trade Secrets made my other half’s day. He felt that they helped him look his best and they made getting ready easier. The bag also gave him a better way to store his products around our home. He really enjoyed using all of them

  1. My husbnad would definitely like the AG Welding Paste Extreme Hold, both for him to use because he loves a strong hold in hair products and as a bit of a joke because he is a welder.

  2. My guy would appreciate the American Crew 3 in 1 Tea Tree Oil. This would be great for the gymn as it can be used a shampoo,conditioner and bodywash.

  3. I would get my guy the American Crew 3 in 1. He is always in a rush in the mornings so having one product for a quick shower would help.

  4. My husband is a trained coiffure. So I’m think the BaByliss Magnetic Pro Clipper/Trimmer. For starters.

  5. I would love to give the AG Shampoo & Body Wash – 355ml to my dad! He’s sacrificed so much for me, but barely spoils himself and I think this quality product will be a good gift for him. 🙂
