I have already admitted in past years that I am a Product Queen, so how can I not have a featured dedicated to some fabulous products. Here I have listed some Spa products that I hope you all enjoy as much as I do.

Specially developed for shaving, cleansing and general skincare, the highly effective natural formulations create an attractive and well-cared-for radiance, and give the skin pure energy and vitality.

Let’s not forget how important Sunscreen is especially living in Florida, so lets add it to our daily routine.
This is a luxurious, water and sweat resistant, sun protection in a silky smooth cream. The silky smoothness comes from the enhanced chitosan added to its base.

Image Skincare is an evidence-based clinical skin care company, providing professional skin care products and effective skin care solutions. This skin care line is not available over the counter and is only sold by licensed aestheticians and physicians in spas, medical spas and physicians’ offices. They have fabulous products, but a couple that I recommend are:
Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser (6 oz – $28)
An Organic green tea and chamomile gel cleanser that lifts away makeup and impurities. This organic facial cleanser balances the PH of your skin and eliminates the need for a toner. A harmonizing blend of comfrey, calendula and rich botanicals that deliver essential nutrients to restore the skin natural balance. This organic facial cleanser leaves skin soft, hydrated, and naturally clean.

A pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C serum that immediately minimizes and soothes the visible effects of environmentally damaged skin. Vitamins A,C and E and anti-oxidants nourish the skin to create healthy, youthful glowing skin.
Most guys I know love getting shaved at the barber with a straight razor as it always leaves your skin feeling soft and wonderful. Therefore I recommend Star Customs Blades Grim Straight Razor Learning Set ($59.88), the perfect razor for someone considering straight razor shaving or the Star Customs Blades Grim Full Straight Razor Shaving Set ($64.99) featured on StraightRazors.com, which has a full selection of high-quality USA made straight edge razor sets available from beginners to expert straight edge shavers. The Benefits of using a straight razor include: a vastly superior and closer shave, elimination of razor burn, save hundreds of dollars and environmental friendliness, straight shaving eliminates the need for disposable razors… and their plastic packaging.
