Dove Men + Care: Review and Giveaway

I have known my husband since we were in the 6th grade (about 24 years now). We have been together through his journey from a boy to a teenager and from a young adult to a husband. But the day he became a father was such a transformation. I always knew he would be a great Daddy, but he has far exceeded my expectations. Our two girls are so fortunate to have a father that is so comfortable with who he is that he has no problem hiding his masculinity and playing princess or getting his toenails painted.  With each passing day, I fall in love with him more and more as he becomes even more comfortable in his own skin.

Now, new Dove Men + Care is celebrating the unsung moments when a man is comfortable with himself.  As part of this campaign, three major league baseball players, beginning with Albert Pujols, tell the story of their “Journey to Comfort” to which every man can relate.  Check out the first video:

Dove recognizes that men need to literally be comfortable in their own skin, so they came up with their first ever line of products designed specifically to meet the needs for men.  The Dove Body and Face Wash as well as the Dove Body and Face Wash are clinically proven to fight dryness without irritation or tightness.  It is formulated with ultra-light MICROMOISTURE technology, a unique gel technology that activates on skin during lather to guard skin against discomfort.

My husband had the opportunity to try out the Body and Face Wash.  I will admit that it took a little convincing to get him to used to the idea of using a loofa (which Dove cleverly renamed a scrubber), but now I don’t think he will go back.  He liked the way it smelled, the amount of lather and the way it made his skin feel.


Do you know a man that is comfortable in his own skin?  Treat him to his own Dove Men + Care prize pack including a Body and Face Wash, Body and Face Bar and a Scrubber!
