If you're late shopping for Father's Day it's not too late to come through in the pinch. Past the ties, socks and underwear, we suggest addressing his grooming regimen. Grooming is a more sophisticated way to show dad (or husband) that you care about his well-being.  Here, we introduce  J. Paul skin care. J. Paul skin care, based in Houston, Texas is an upstart men's grooming line focused on "sophisticated simplicity." Started by two gentlemen named "Paul" the line was launched out of necessity. One evening while preparing for a black tie wedding, Paul #1 ran out of shave cream and was reduced to shaving with shampoo conditioner. Never wanting to find himself in this position again, he decided to create his own grooming line.

The line is targeted at men with thick, heavy beards or who have a permanent 5 o'clock shadow and consists of six core products to exfoliate, prepare, shave, restore and protect.  Made of all natural ingredients including glycerin, Vitamins A,C,E, jojoba oil, green tea extract and no perfumes or dyes, the line is an ecological option.  What makes J. Paul different form its competitors Jack Black, Art of Shaving, Billy Jealously and Lab Series is its ability to provide a smoother, cleaner, longer lasting shave using less product. The J. Paul shave uses 1/3 less product and lasts three times as long.

J. Paul is currently offered online and is stocked in Nordstrom's grooming sections around the country.  While it's yet to be seen if J. Paul can gain a significant market share of the saturated men's grooming market, we'd bet a shave on it. Take a look at the J. Paul offerings below and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
