Dove Men + Care Review


Dove Men + Care Review

Dove sent us one of each of their products in the men’s product line: body & face wash, body and face bars, deodorant and the dual sided shower tool to try out. My husbands gets so excited when I get stuff for him. We love Dove in our household so I thought this would be great for him to try so he would leave my dove body wash alone. My husband really loved the double sided loofa and the body wash. He said it made his skin feel just as soft if he was using regular dove. He loved that he did not smell like a cucumber or a peach when he was done showering. I denetly think we have keeper on the body wash and bar.  He did not like the deodorant. We both thought it smelled great but it did not do the the job. My Husbands is mechanic and sweats a lot so this could be the reason why it did not work for him. I think he would have liked it better if it came in spray.

Dr. Carolyn Jacob, a board certified dermatologist and Dove Men + Care expert offers skin care tips for men.  Here are some of her top tips for the upcoming winter season.
Follow Dove Men’s Care on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all of their new products, ask them questions, and enter current giveaways.
Wipe out winter blues with a hydrating body wash.  Although men can tolerate stronger facial products than women (they have thicker skin and typically more oil glands), they are still prone to dry skin in the winter. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash is clinically proven to fight skin dryness without irritation and will help men avoid winter dryness.

Don’t sweat it – embarrassing sweat stains are the pits. For years only women had a large choice of antiperspirants since sweat may be “macho” for men but not attractive for women.  The truth is many men suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which is why stronger antiperspirants like Dove Men+Care Clinical Protection are available for men today. This antiperspirant provides prescription strength protection against wetness while also guarding against odor.
Simplify skincare. Many men aren’t interested or don’t have the time for a daily grooming routine, but it’s easy to keep your skin healthy looking. Wash your face twice a day, and put moisturizer with sunscreen on in the morning. It is that simple!
Cleanse daily for clear skin.  Refresh your skin and wash away stubborn impurities by cleansing your face at least once a day. For normal to dry skin use a moisturizing cleanser and for break-out prone skin avoid oil-based products. If that doesn’t do the trick, visit your dermatologist and get a topical medication that will help to prevent breakouts.
Moisture is the key to care. Dove research shows that most men blame their socks for the dry, itchy skin on their legs. It may be your socks, but I’d say switching to products that contain built in moisturizers, like Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash, and taking short showers that are lukewarm will solve this problem. The Dove Men+Care Body and Face Wash contains ultra-light micromoisture technology that boosts the skin’s natural moisture barrier to combat dryness and fight against irritation. Applying moisturizer immediately after showering is also helpful, as it will trap the water and hydrate your skin.
Understand your skin. Individuals with darker skin tones tend to have oily skin and should wash their face twice a day. Additionally, products that contain both moisturizing and cleansing ingredients like the Dove Men+Care Deep Clean micro-moisture Body and Face Wash that cleanses and moisturizes with purifying grains are great because they prevent visible dry spots, which are a common problem for those with darker pigments.
Travel with your moisturizing essentials. While traveling can help you wind-down, it is not so kind on your skin. Airplanes are extremely dry and can affect your skin severely, which is why it’s always important to hydrate and moisturize before and after you take off! I’d recommend packing TSA friendly Dove Men+Care Body and Face bar, which fights dryness with Dove signature 1/4 moisturizing cream. Also, when visiting a dry climate, pack a heavier facial lotion or cream with sunscreen and for more humid environments, be sure to bring a lighter facial lotion with sunscreen.
Fight underarm discomfort with Dove Men+Care Antiperspirants. Dove Men+Care global research found that over 50% of men experience some form of underarm discomfort.  Dove Men+Care antiperspirants combine powerful 48 hour odor and wetness protection with a non-irritating formula that’s tough on sweat, not on skin.
Know your grooming aisle. The simple but technologically advanced Dove Men+Care product line makes it the #1 dermatologist choice, making it easier for guys to navigate the men’s grooming aisle, packed with products that have exploded onto drug store shelves.  Arm yourself with knowledge they next time you visit a “guy aisle” and know what products are right for you.

Turn Heads This Winter In Old Navy Outerwear Review


Turn Heads This Winter In Old Navy Outerwear

Thanks to Crowdtap and Old Navy, I recently had the opportunity to be apart of the Old Navy Style Council.  I was given the opportunity to  to receive a free coat of my choice from Old Navy and one for a friend to choose.  When I walked in Old navy I could not believe all the styles an colors to chose from. It was a really hard decision to make but I finely found the right one . I wanted something I could wear everyday and not have to worry if it matched so I went with the Women's Cropped Wool-Blend Peacoat in Black   . I usually wear a medium in Old Navy but this time I had to go for a large because the arms where to short for me. Overall the coat fit great and I am waiting for it to get cold so I can wear out. If you are in need of coat for winter I suggest you head to old navy the have great choice with a great price tag to go along with it.
If you are unfamiliar with Crowdtap, I highly suggest checking it out.  As a member you participate in polls and join discussions and earn cash for all your hard work.

Burt's Bees® Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin Review

Burt's Bees® Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin
Face anything.

I was so excited when I was picked by Buzzagent to try Burts Bees cleanser  for free. I have always used dove soap on my face because anything else would break my skin out. I was a little worried to try it because everything in the past has made my face either burn or break out. I have always had good skin but it it really sensitive. I followed the directions and washed my face with it and it made my face feel so clean . My face never felt like it was burning or turned red. It made my face feel cleaner then soap.My opinion on the cleanser is that it worked great and I loved it and will use it now on instead of soap.
