Growing up, I wasn’t really a tomboy. I was a total girlie girl. But now I go to baseball games with my husband and I have three sons. (A bit of irony as I work with a lot of women, obviously.) Back in my day, girls didn’t do sports outside—it just wasn’t a thing. So my father and I did creative things at home together, like developing photos in our family darkroom.
Father’s Day is a family affair for me. It’s about my dad, my husband, my father-in-law, my sons, and my four nephews—all the important men I’m lucky to have in my life. This year, we’ll probably play golf and have a barbecue as a big family. And, not surprisingly, many of my boys are regular users of Bobbi Brown skincare, and they’ve inspired some of my favorite products.
My 23-year-old son, Cody, for example, loves the Lathering Tube Soap as a matter of fact, he named it! “I workout a lot, and this is the only product I have found that keeps my skin clear without irritating it,” he tells me.
My 81-year-old father, Joe, uses the All Over Bronzing Gel SPF 15 daily. (I always remind him to not forget the ears.) The color, Joe Brown, is named after him, of course. “As men get older, they lose their natural color and take on an ashen appearance,” he told me. “This takes less than one minute, and then I can go take a nice walk in the sun.”
A few other household “Bobbi’s Boys” favorites…Steven, my husband, never goes golfing without SPF 50 Protective Face Base on. My oldest son Dylan’s favorite product, especially on winter ski days in Telluride, is Yogi Bare Lip Balm. Last but certainly not least, while he may be only 17 years old, he knows the power of moisturizer already. My baby boy Duke can’t leave home without Hydrating Face Cream and my Lip Balm.
I’m a lucky daughter, mother, and wife. I hope you all have a happy Father’s Day!
