For Dad: Charcoal Facial Detox

So I was going to do a gift guide for father’s day, but when the time came all I really wanted to write about was this badass bar of black soap. It looks like a big hunk of charcoal, and weighs a ton—what guy would not want this?! The color comes from active charcoal, which naturally draws out impurities, deep-cleans pores, and removes dead skin cells. It’s like a power tool. The addition of coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil also make it moisturizing and soothing—something more men need in their skincare regimen. Or, whatever you call those 2.3 seconds they spend in the bathroom each day. All I really care about is the scent: tea tree and peppermint oil, which gives it a little tingle. I’ve had no problem hording this bar for myself, but you should really give one to your dad, your brother, your man. Happy Father’s Day!
