This Father’s Day #GoAskDad #Gillette #PGMom

Father’s Day hasn’t been the same since my father passed away.  He passed away in 1995; he never even got to see his granddaughter.  I remember his stories of ‘the old days’ and what it was like when he was growing up.  These are all stories that he will never have the chance to share with his grandchildren.  Since my daughter’s father isn’t in the picture; nor has he been since she was 3 years old, she won’t have the opportunity to have a “Go Ask Dad” moment.  Instead, she has her uncles, friends, and my partner.

In a world where screen-time often outweighs actual face time, the internet has become the go-to source of information.  Teens are turning to the internet for answers to their every question.  Through a simple search, the internet can serve up a surplus of videos and how-to articles in seconds, but do the results truly give the answers teens really need?  Is the internet providing that personal touch?  Emotion?  Love?

This Father’s Day, Gillette is reminding people everywhere to “Go Ask Dad” for answers to their everyday questions.  While your Dad will certainly appreciate a card (or a new razor) for Father’s Day, taking a moment to ask his advice will mean more to him than you might guess.

94% of teenagers ask the Internet for advice before their dads. On Father’s Day we wanted to change that. To show the power of dads we pitted dad versus the internet. The results proved that this Father’s Day you should go ask dad.

Check out these Father’s Day video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmWRODY0ing from Gillette where real teens and their fathers participate in the “Go Ask Dad” experiment.  In the end, they come to an important realization: while the internet may “know all,” it turns out that Dad may actually “know best.”

This Father’s Day helping dad look his best doesn’t have to break the bank. Forget ties, socks and underwear, get dad a gift he’ll actually use and his face will love. The new Gillette Fusion ProShield razor has lubrication before and after the blades so his skin will be smoother and shielded from skin irritation and at only $14.99 the Gillette Fusion ProShield won’t irritate your bank account either. To take your gifting game to the next level, why not get dad a subscription to www.GilletteShaveClub.ca so he never has to worry about going out to buy blades again.

Tips for Valentine’s Day from @GilletteVenus #PGMom

Sometimes, a holiday such as Valentine ’s Day is just what we need to finally book a babysitter, make a reservation to this hot new place and wear this little black dress which hasn’t seen daylight in months!

With a few years under my belt, I can tell you that it can be difficult to set aside time to enjoy special nights, such as Valentine’s, but I can also say that it’s better to make the effort than to allow the years to go by.  My daughter is almost 18 years old so I can leave her alone (obviously); however, I remember how I missed out on fun nights as a single mom and when I didn’t have anyone to leave her with.  It’s much easier (for me) to get out these days … getting ready is just as easy too!  As a PGMom; or not, I love P&G products because they’re great and because they are dependable.  The Venus® Swirl™ is designed with the revolutionary FLEXIBALL™ and 5 individually adjusting Contour™ blades. It contours over curves for flawless skin, long-lasting smoothness and virtually no missed hairs.

• Water-activated MoistureGlide™ serum for incredible glide
• Sleek handle with enhanced grip

Now, don’t let winter skin ruin your look–get ready to show off some skin!

  1. Prep skin properly and banish goosebumps before shaving: When it comes to shaving, ensuring hair is hydrated properly before is key because it will make it easier to cut. Goosebumps also create an uneven surface, which makes it more difficult to get a smooth shave.  The ideal amount of time to let hair soak up water and let your skin warm up before shaving is 5 minutes, but 1-2 minutes should be sufficient if you’re in a hurry.
  2. Help your skin stay smooth: When every minute counts, multitasking products can make all the difference – especially ones that can help skin stay soft through the winter elements. Reach for a razor that gives you a close shave.  If you’re looking for some smooth skin and sleek legs, use the Venus Swirl Razor.
  3. Score a healthy glow: A spray tan or self-tanning lotion is a quick and easy way to get glowing when the sun in nowhere in sight! Shaving with a razor like Venus Swirl right before you apply self-tanner or get a spray tan can help because it gently exfoliates the skin and you want the surface to be as even as possible to avoid streaks or dark patches.

Add these simple tips to your beauty routine and you will be ready for a well-deserved Valentine’s Day date!

ENJOY your night.
