I don’t know about you but Father’s Day always creeps up on me a little. Four of our six family members celebrate their birthday in August so just when I finish making that last birthday cake I find Father’s Day waiting around the corner. I am giving you the heads up nice and early this year: Father’s Day is 5 weeks away so it’s time to starting thinking of the perfect gift for that special man in your life.

Remington SmartEdgeEarlier this month I showed you the new Remington SmartEdge shaver that keeps hip daddy looking office-smart day-in day-out, if you missed it you can read up here. I know I promised to give one away as well so here’s your chance, one of my lovely Hip Little One readers will be surprising a great hubby, dad or even father-in-law with one of these fantastic razors valued at RRP $199.95 this Father’s Day. That’s a pretty awesome gift if you ask me!

A few weeks ago Hip Daddy turned 34 and even though we didn’t celebrate big, with just our 4 kids (and a baby bump) it’s already quite the party. Early on in our marriage we started a small tradition where every child gets something to give to daddy, little did I know at the time that we would go on to have a larger than average family. Four kids later it is getting rather tricky to find enough good presents to give but I am glad to say I succeeded again with this Remington gift being a big hit:

Remington SmartEdge XF8550AU

I admit a shaver is more of a practical present than a luxury treat but you have no doubt read last week that he got a bit of both so no complaints there. Because hubby religiously shaves every morning before going to work I knew a new shaver would be well received, he enjoys the easy shave and I enjoy the smooth skin, double win!

SmartEdge Foil ShaverWhen you take a close look at the Remington SmartEdge Advanced Foil Shaver (RRP $199.95) you’ll notice the foil shaver has a unique multi-directional hole pattern, about time someone realised not all hairs grown neatly in the same direction! By catching hairs from all angles you need fewer moves to achieve a close shave all-over so it’s quicker and more effective.

Remington SmartEdgeThe cordless design is perfect for busy dads on the go who try to do a million things at the same time, hip daddy is quite the expert at it. If you’re a really keen multi-tasker you can even use your 100% waterproof SmartEdge shaver in the shower and rinse under the tap, so convenient! The shaver can be used dry, with shaving foam or with gel, whichever you feel is most gentle on your skin. Hubby prefers gel in the shower to reduce redness but in the mornings it’s often a dry shave to save time.

The powerful lithium battery has a generous 50 minute runtime (that’s a lot of beard to shave), if needed you can do a super speedy 5 minute quick charge or complete a full charge in 120 minutes. I love the handy charging lights indicating how much battery you have left, that way you’ll never run out of battery unexpectedly.

Could your hubby do with a nice new shaver too? Stay tuned, in the lead up to Father’s Day we’ll give you the chance to win a Remington SmartEdge Advanced Foil Shaver for the special man in your life. 

As always Remington offers fantastic peace of mind with a generous 2 year product warranty, as well as a 60 day money back guarantee.

Christmas Countdown – Day 15

Now I know the kids usually get to unwrap the majority of gifts under the tree but (grand) parents deserve to be spoilt too. We have picked our top gift ideas for mums and dads from our wonderful friends at Remington and we even get to spoil one lucky lady with a fantastic prize pack too:

The awesome Blow Dry In A Box (RRP $69.95) contains all you need to create the ultimate salon style blow-dry in the comfort of your own home (and without breaking the bank!).

Remington Blow Dry in a Box

The powerful (yet ultra silent) Remington Salon Professional Hair Dryer (2300 watt) offers 3 different heat settings and 2 speed settings as well as a cool shot so can you can tailor your blow-dry to suit your hair perfectly. The innovative conditioning ionic technology will leave you hair soft and well conditioned whilst the tourmaline ceramic technology replaces unwanted frizz by a smooth and shiny finish. Also included are blow-dry must haves likes a handy radial brush and two section clips.

Remington Osmo PackTo achieve that magazine worthy blow-dry your hair needs to be healthy and well looked after which is why Remington’s Blow Dry In A Box contains a great selection of hair care products too. You can count on the popular Osmo trio Osmo Berber Oil Shampoo Rejuvenating Cleaner (50ml), Osmo Berber Oil Mask Restoration Therapy (50ml) and Osmo Wonder 10 (25ml) to get your hair in tip top shape and blow-dry ready.

Movember is done and dusted so it’s time to get rid of that prickly mo with the new Remington HyperFlex Golfer Pack (RRP $199.99). Hip daddy received the lithium powered HyperFlex Shaver as an early Christmas present (I couldn’t stand the stubble any longer!) a few weeks ago and he is very pleased with its smooth shaving results, I am too which is just as important.

Remington Hyperflex Golfer Pack

Featuring a multi-directional pivoting neck the shaver head moves freely to adjust to your neck, chin and jawline and the ActiveContour shaving heads adjust automatically to the contours of your face to deliver a nice clean cut from any angle. Some hairs may be longer and others shorter but the Precision Ultra cutters cut both long and short hairs in fewer strokes, add to that the Stainless Steel Twin Track Blades which offer 50% more shaving coverage and you can see why the HyperFlex reduces your shaving time, leaving dad with more time to do the things he likes.

Before our children were born I could easily spend a few hours in the bath, reading a good book surrounded by bubbles and thoroughly washing my hair, shaving my legs, enjoying a relaxing face mask and painting my toe nails. Those days have long gone and now I am happy with a quick five minute shower in the evening after a long day, showering on your own is a luxury when you’re a parent! The reoccurring task of shaving takes up time I’d rather spend on other things, so I decided to turn to Remington for a more time-efficient solution:

Remington Smooth & Silky

The Remington Smooth & Silky Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator ($99.95) is designed for quick and easy hair removal that leaves your skin ‘smooth & silky’, just the way I like it! Fitted with 40 stainless steel tweezers the Smooth & Silky effortlessly removes unwanted hair by the root, which means it will take longer for hair to grow back and you get to savour that smooth skin for longer too. Even the shortest 0.5mm hairs prove no problem and the built-in precision light will make sure no hair is missed.

Remington Smooth & Silky Epilator HeadOne of the features that makes this Remington Epilator a real standout is the fact that it is cordless so you can use it anywhere and anytime, even on holiday! Within 4 hours it is fully charged and it has a cordless usage time of (up to) 40 minutes, plenty of time to tackle your hairy legs, underarms and any other prickly areas. The whole handheld unit is 100% waterproof so you can safely use it in the shower as part of your bathing routine.

Remington Smooth & Silky Shaver HeadThe Remington Smooth & Silky comes complete with a range of accessories: 2 heads (one epilator head, one shaver head), 3 washable attachment caps (precision cap for smaller areas and facial detailing, massage cap with soothing Aloe Vera and bikini comb cap), exfoliating glove, cleaning brush and storage bag. These handy add-ons make this an extremely versatile product that will not only save you time but money too as it removes the need for razor blades and shaving cream.

I won’t lie, the first time you use the Remington Smooth & Silky you may need to bite your teeth while you get used to the pulling sensation but that soon passes and the next time you’ll hardly feel a thing. The epilator is easy to hold and move around and the pivoting head follows the contours of your body really well. My own little test (yes, I really shaved one leg and epilated the other) showed that once you have established a good cycle and all hairs have been epilated at least once you can go roughly three to even four weeks without epilating (unlike shaving!!). In my opinion fewer hairs grow back and they become easier to remove too. I am really pleased with the result and love how time efficient it is, so much more rewarding than shaving your legs knowing you have to do it again next week and the week after.

As a loyal Remington user I know I can count on Remington for great quality, durable products that are backed up by an excellent warranty. The Remington Smooth & Silky comes with a reassuring 30 day money back guarantee and a huge 2 year warranty.

I hate to be the one to tell you but if you haven’t purchased all your Christmas gifts yet you better get a move on, with only 2,5 weeks to go until Christmas you are quickly running out of time! I know what it is like: You’re busy working, doing chores, attending Christmas parties and barbeques and there’s just not much time for shopping so it’s always easy when you can shop multiple presents under one roof. This Christmas Remington has got the whole family covered with these great gifts for mums and dads, grandmas and grandpas, aunties and uncles and even little daughters and cousins:

Remington Twist BraidWhen I was a little girl I always dreamt of one of these cool hairstylers, I circled them in catalogues and pointed them out on TV and now our 5-year old daughter does the same, some things never change. The Remington Twist Braid ($19.95) is sure to make any little girl’s heart beat faster this December, who wouldn’t want to unwrap one of these fancy bright pink stylers that can create beautiful twisted braids with the touch of a button?

Using the Remington Twist Braid is very straight forward, there are just two button options (Twirl and Twist) so it’s very easy to master for mums and daughters too. The Twist Braid comes in a lovely pink box complete with a stash of hair clips, head bands, beads and hair elastics for lots of hairdressing fun, even the 2 AA batteries are included (nothing more annoying than a frantic hunt for batteries on Christmas morning!). Priced at just $19.95 this gorgeous set makes a fabulous Christmas gift that won’t break the bank.

WETech Rotary ShaverDads, granddads and teenage sons can be tricky to buy for but one thing they have in common is the reoccurring stubble on their faces. If your man is anything like mine he hates the daily shave and puts it off as long as possible. With the 100% waterproof Remington WETech Rotary Shaver (RRP $89.95) they can kill two birds with one stone, have a refreshing shower and do the grooming at the same time!

The WETech multi-flexing heads fitted with stainless steel blades efficiently shave hair in all directions, delivering a clean cut on both wet and dry skin. The anti-slip grip on the shaver ensures a confident hold at all times, very important in wet conditions, and the charging station allows for water drainage. Being completely washable the WETech Rotary Shaver is a breeze to clean, the hairpocket can be emptied with the push of one button and a cleaning brush is included for a thorough clean.

WETechWhen you have sensitive skin and hairs that grow in easily like my husband shaving is not something you look forward to but so far he’s been pleasantly surprised with the WETech, it’s quick, hassle-free, comfortable to hold, quiet (!) and gentle on his skin. With an impressive cordless using time of (up to) 60 minutes and handy 5 minute quick charge the WETech Rotary Shaver is ideal for busy men on the go.

Remington Perfect Waves 2For the ladies Remington has a whole range of fabulous gift suggestions, from long to short hair, from straight hair to curly and in between, from grandma to aunt and from mum to daughter, there is a perfect Remington Hair Styler for you. With Christmas parties and New Year celebrations coming up you might be tempted to visit the hair dresser for a head of classy curls or beautiful waves but you can save yourself big bucks by creating the look at home with the Remington Perfect Waves.

The Remington Perfect Waves (RRP $69.95) is a 2-in-1 styling tool that is really easy to use. The unit itself is fabulous deep-waver that leaves the most fantastic waves in a matter of seconds, the result is amazing. For shallow, beach-like waves you need just a quick squeeze between the plates and the longer you hold your locks in the more dept the waves have (think Downton Abbey waves, it looks so lovely). As you may remember I had the big chop a few months ago so now it takes me just over 5-10 minutes to create a new look with this practical styler.

Remington Perfect WavesYou can also use the Perfect Waves to turn your straight locks into loose curls by sliding the detachable heat-resistant cover (included) onto the styler. This spiral shaped cover fits perfectly around the barrel and clicks in to stay in place, it also features a handy clip so you can secure the end of your hair while you gently wind it around the heated base. No burnt fingers and nonchalant, feminine curls are the result.
