Time Out for Discoveries and a Dove Men+Care Giveaway!

UPDATE:  Congratulations to Cindy (Commenter #8) for winning the Dove Men+Care Giveaway.  Thanks so much to everyone for entering!


Thanks to Dove® Men + Care™, I get to host another giveaway!  I’m going to announce the winner on Columbus Day.  To me, Columbus Day is about discovery.  Yes, Christopher Columbus did discover something already there, but think about it.  No Facebook, no Twitter, no texting, no e-mail; yet his discovery became known to the world.  Pretty amazing.

In terms of discovery, Dove has brought men’s skincare for me to a whole new level.  Before, when I took a shower, it was just me, my bar of Dove soap, and an all-in-one shampoo.  That’s it.  Once in a while, I would use the soap to wash my face, but didn’t love how it felt.  After showering, it would be antiperspirant/deodorant time, some baby powder, and a weekly shave.  For me, that’s about all the care I had.

Well, the awesome kit that Dove sent me changed everything.  It included a Samsonite toiletry travel bag, two bars of Extra Fresh soap (which they call body and face bars), a Clean Comfort antiperspirant/deodorant (48 hours!), a bottle of Sensitive Clean body and face wash, an Active Clean dual sided shower tool (with great directions), and some great advice from dermatologist, Dr. Jeffrey Benabio (@DermDoc).

Dove's awesome line of men's skincare products.

The bar of soap (a.k.a body and face bar) smells good (in a manly way) and feels good.  I was able to use it to wash my face (with great lather), and it didn’t give me that dry and tight feeling that other soaps can give.  Also, one big problem I have with most other bars of soap is the shape.  The Dove body and face bar has an angular shape and is easy to hold.  Very cool!

I found the antiperspirant/deodorant to be just as good and even better than many others I have tried.  It was long lasting and left no irritation.  Again, good smell and not overpowering or overbearing.  Finally, using the shower tool with the body and face wash provided a whole new cleaning experience.  It forced me to clean longer and clean better.  Now, I can see why my wife uses her bath sponge everyday.  It’s a whole new world. 🙂

The kit also came with some tips and advice from dermatologist, Dr. Jeffrey Benabio (@DermDoc).  I learned that some deodorants are too harsh, which can cause underarm discomfort.  Dr. Benablo says, “Choose a deodorant like you choose a mate.” 🙂

Make sure to check out Dove® Men + Care™ on Facebook and Twitter for more information, news, and tips.  They are also currently hosting The Rules for Men contest.  My rule? A happy wife = a happy life.  Always! 🙂

To enter this giveaway (US residents only), just leave a comment about why you or your significant other needs this cool Dove® Men + Care™ kit. One entry per person. Deadline: October 10, 2011, NOON.  I will announce the winner sometime on Columbus day. I will then forward your information to Dove so they can send the kit to you. Good luck!

Disclosure: I was compensated with a Dove® Men + Care™ kit in order to offer this promotion.
