Dove Men + Care {A Winey Mommy Review}

Leo always has the hardest times picking out body soaps that he likes. He usually just ends up using whatever I have in the shower--and usually? Those are girlie scents {my poor husband!}. I've tried different brands for him--but usually they're too strong and aimed at a younger crowd. Being a man in his 30's he knows what he wants but at the same time he can't seem to find the right product.

Then enters the new Dove line made especially for men--Dove Men + Care. The Dove Men + Care is especially made for men who are comfortable with themselves, but not yet in their own skin.

So what exactly does this mean? This means that now Dove has a product that is formulated especially for men and their skin needs--no more using my skin products {way to go, babe!}. It also provides the cleansing and refreshing that men want for their skin combined with Dove moisturizers to provide total skin comfort--another bonus for Leo who rarely puts on lotion. It's clinically proven to fight skin dryness with no irritation or dryness & is dermatologist recommended.

After receiving our two samples--the Clean Comfort Body & Face wash  and the Extra Fresh Body & Face bar--I noticed right away the great "man" smell. I love how Leo smells when he wears a little cologne or right after he shaves! Both of the products smelled so manly and good...I loved it! Leo got home and went running last nite after work. He told me he would try out the products and tell me how he liked them.

I have to admit I was nervous...I knew I loved how they smelled, but would Leo? Remember, he always has a hard time picking out a body wash that he likes. He gets out of the shower, gets dressed and comes out to the living room. I asked him how he liked them--his reply was that he really liked them--a lot. He tried both out for the review and said he loved them both. His favorite was the body wash {he can take that to work for when he goes to the gym on workout days} but that is why he favored the liquid soap. I asked him if he would want me to start buying Dove's Men + Care line--he told me yes! I'm so excited that there is a brand and product out there for Leo now. No more floral or fruity scented soaps for him, haha!

Right now you--my readers can submit YOUR man's unsung moments {whether it's a story, photo or video} and when a backyard makeover for that special man in your life--perfect timing, too! With spring approaching I know that Leo would be thrilled with this! To enter your man's unsung moment click here!

And for those of you who didn't catch it, here's the Superbowl commercial--hilarious!

I received the products mentioned above in order to write an honest review. No other compensation was given.

How cool. I didnt know Dove made mens' products. The hubs has super sensative skin & the doc had him recently switch from his manly Irish Spring to Dove but was all upset about it cause he says it's a 'girl soap', lol. Now I can take him to the store & show him it's NOT just girly soap anymore. Thanks!

i think i'll sneak it into the shower. My husband uses my shampoo because he says it smells good....that harsh exterior is all a show. Really i'm married to a teddy bear who would rather have his skin be soft and supple....i didn't tell you that though.
