Kit Dad out with the Miracle of the season - that is, the SOME BY MI Miracle Holiday Yuja Niacin Brightening Set. This 3-piece set focuses on brightening hyperpigmentation and dark spots with the greatest hits of the Yuja Niacin collection. Yuja and Niacinamide come together in the set’s serum, blemish stick and cream to revive dull skin and impart a fresh, healthy glow.

For the minimalists who prefer a stripped-back skin routine, the ILLIYOON Ceramide Set contains 2 moisturizers that can actually be used for the face and body. Both the Ceramide Ato Lotion and Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream are jam-packed with fortifying Ceramide and traditional Asian herbs to soothe irritation while strengthening the skin’s resilience. This fragrance-free duo is sure to keep Dad fully stocked on the moisturization front for the seasons to come.

The Tight Nuance Hair Jam helps create sleek looks that come across as effortless and natural, while still appearing professional. Expect lift, hold, and volume all day long with this oil-free formula that protects the hair from sweat and moisture.

Nothing celebrates Dad’s heroic qualities like the Marvel Edition of the Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk N SPF50+ PA++++. Waterproof and sweat-resistant, this sunscreen is formulated with Tormentil Root extract and water-soluble Collagen to prevent skin from drying out, instead keeping it moisturized and soft. Its milky texture sinks into the skin and becomes undetectable, suitable for use on the face or body. The Avengers packaging isn’t the only protective element of this fan-fave SPF.
MISSHA - For Men Aqua Breath Special Gift Set

What’s better than 1 gift? We’d say 4 gifts, which the MISSHA For Men Aqua Breath Special Gift Set basically comes with. The Aqua Breath Toner and Emulsion are formulated with oxygenated water to deliver hydration deep into the skin without exacerbating oiliness on the surface. The mild formulas of this collection make the products suitable for a wide range of skin types, including oily, combination, and dehydrated. Each product comes in a full and travel size, perfect for storing one on the bathroom counter and one in the gym bag.
Oral-B - iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush

If you’re going to splurge on a gift, make it worth Dad’s while and choose something he can use everyday, like the Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush. This dentist-inspired toothbrush comes with a rounded head to reach all the nooks and crannies, and powerful but gentle micro-vibrations for a professional clean on the daily. 7 smart modes cater towards different concerns, like whitening, gum care, and tongue cleaning, complete with an interactive display that coaches through each brush and in-app brushing habits tracking.
CELIMAX - Heartleaf BHA Body Mist

If Dad is the type of person that “doesn’t want anything”, get him something he doesn’t even realize he needs: the CELIMAX Heartleaf BHA Body Mist. This skin-refining body mist fights against body acne with exfoliating BHA, PHA and LHA to get rid of dead skin cells and excess sebum, as well as anti-inflammatory Houttuynia Cordata (Heartleaf) extract to treat existing blemishes. Coming in a spray form, its application is straightforward and the results oh-so-satisfying. Did we mention this is a VANA Award winner?

Get Dad started on his skincare journey with a simple, easy-to-execute skincare routine - we’d recommend the Pyunkang Yul Skin Set 20 for the job. The set includes Pyunkang Yul's Essence Toner, Intensive Repair Cream and Cleansing Foam for fuss-free cleansing, toning and moisturizing. The trio work together to make skin moist and supple, thanks to non-irritating ingredients like Ceramide, Milk Vetch Root extract, and Centella Asiatica, to name a few.
NEOGEN Dermalogy - Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads

The NEOGEN Dermalogy Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads ensure a clean, smooth canvas as a base for toners, serums and moisturizers. These 3-layered pads come equipped with a gauze surface for gently clearing away debris and dead skin cells, and an embossed surface for smoothing out skin texture. Take your pick of three options: Wine to perk up sagging pores, Green Tea for a moisture boost, or Lemon for revitalizing dull skin.
FOREO - LUNA 3 Plus Thermal-Cleansing & Microcurrent Facial Device

Make facial cleansing a breeze with the FOREO LUNA 3 Plus Thermal-Cleansing & Microcurrent Facial Device. The tech-loving dad will appreciate its relaxing thermal cleansing function powered by T-sonic pulsations that dislodge dirt, grime and excess sebum from the pores. This multitasking device also features microcurrents for skin-lifting and contour-sculpting treatments, and in-app controls to set desired settings of cleaning intensity, temperature, and microcurrent level.
