** 2014 Holiday Gift Guide **

When it comes to shopping for the men on my holiday gift-giving list I like to shop for practical presents that I know they will use. Things like men’s cologne, after-shave lotions, balms and shaving products.

Mary Kay is is a direct selling company that really caters to women but let me tell you, they have some fine men’s products too!

Recently I was sent 3 products from their line of men’s products and had my hubby try them out for all of you.

The MK High Intensity SPORT Cologne Spray has quickly become one of his favorite colognes to wear. It is NOT overly fragranced and smells really nice when he wears it.

* Top Notes: Gin Berry and Icy Bergamot are cut with a shot of Liquid Oxygen Accord.

* Fresh Middle Notes: Cool Cardamom, Crushed Mint Leaf and Violet Pepper.

* Bottom Notes: Wild Birch Bark and Amber.

One of the things that he loves about it is the simple fact that it doesn’t smell like a women’s perfume. He said sometimes men’s colognes smell too much like something a girl would wear. He said this one is “manly” and he only needs to apply it once in the morning before he heads out the door. It lasts all day long and he appreciates that.

The MK High Intensity SPORT Hair and Body Wash is the companion piece to the cologne. It is great for men who love to layer their products…let’s face it, they are like women in that aspect and love to use the same fragrance like we do.

He loves this product because it is a 2-in-1 product. He can use it to wash his hair and to wash his body. He doesn’t need 2 different products to do the same job. This is great for when he travels because he won’t have to take along two products in his toiletry bag. He said it has a very nice lather and he loves that it matches the cologne perfectly.

The MK Men Cooling After-Shave Gel is another great men’s product in the Mary Kay line.

A welcome relief after shaving, this blue gel shields against razor irritation to leave skin feeling soft and moisturized. It will shield against razor irritation and helps to soothe the skin right after a man shaves. He loves that it contains no oil and it doesn’t leave his skin feeling sticky after application.

All three of these men’s products are available at or from your personal consultant. If you need to locate one near you, use their consultant locator on their web site. In addition, if you are looking to make some extra money by selling MK products, you can grab that information too!
