This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Gillette at Walmart. The opinions and text are all mine.
Father's Day is quickly approaching and nothing says father and son like learning to shave together. Teaching my son to shave has always been something my husband has wanted to do. All my kids watch my husband as he shaves! It's so fun to see them look up to him. If you're teaching your son to shave for the first time, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Make sure the time is right
When it comes to teaching your son to shave, you want to make sure the time is right. You don't want to teach him to shave when he's too little or when he's too old. The right age is everything! Keep this in mind when you decide it's time to teach your son to shave.
Have fun with it
Although shaving and handling a razor is serious business, it's important to have fun with it. Your son should have this as a special memory, so make it fun. Feel free to laugh and make it something he won't forget. These memories are carried for a lifetime with our kids, so it's important that we make them special.
Choose a quality razor
When it comes to showing a young boy how to shave, a quality razor is everything. My husband will only use Gillette and that's what he plans on teaching our son how to shave with. Teaching a young son how to shave is a rite of passage and you need a good razor to make it happen.
Go with the right technique
Teaching your son how to shave comes down to using the right technique. Show him a technique that worked for you! It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just show him a shaving technique that helps get the job done in a safe and effective way.
Have fun at the end
When the shaving session comes to an end, the after shave used is everything. Teach your young boy to not overdo it on the aftershave. Too much can be a huge NOPE.
So, head to your local Walmart because Gillette is on fire there right now, deal wise. Just in time for Father's Day, the Gillette Fusion ProShield and Gillette Fusion ProGlide are both on rollback at Walmart for only $9.97. Plus, with a P&G brandSAVER coupon that was released in the 6/3 paper and online at pgeveryday.com, you can get additional savings of $2.00 off one Gillette razor (excluding Gillette3, Gillette5, and disposable razors). It's a great deal for dads!
