·4 min read
June 20 will be here before you know it, meaning that if you haven’t already bought (or made) the dad in your life his Father’s Day present, it’s about time you hop to it. Does the man in question have a tendency to “borrow” your beauty products? Then he’s going to love Klur’s Immersion hydrating serum. Has his go-to vintage t-shirt seen better days?
