A Sensitive Man and a Backyard Makeover

I received free Dove products in exchange for writing this review.

If you've been around here any amount of time, you probably know that Hubs is comfortable in his own skin.

He has no problem playing Just Dance with me or letting me post a video of him shaking it to a NKOTB song.

He wears pink shirts and will tell you just about everything.

He's a sensitive man who even loves his scrubby puffs(aka loofa).

That's why he was a fabulous candidate to try the new Dove Men + Care product line.

When the box arrived, he dug in and was happy to find body wash and an "Active Clean Shower Tool": the manly version of a scrubby puff. There was also a bar of soap, but he's much more of a body wash type of guy, so that is stored in our linen closet for now.

Hubs has sensitive skin. He always jokes and says, "I'm a sensitive guy."

So, while he initially was thrilled with the Dove Men + Care shower gel and liked his "shower tool"(maybe even a bit too much), and while we both like the scent, I was anxiously waiting to see what would happen as the day progressed.

Would he itch? Break out in a rash? Curse me for making him try it?

Not at all! Dove talks about their moisturizers that provide total skin comfort, with no irritation and my sensitive guy will tell you that it lives up to its promise.

I don't think I'll have to share my shower gel any more and can now buy some girlier smelling gel for myself. Hubs is a sensitive man, but even he had to draw the line somewhere. Now, it will be Dove Men + Care for him and something fruity for me.

You can find a $1 off coupon HERE.


Still with me? Good.

When was the moment when you knew your husband was comfortable in his own skin?

You can win him a BACKYARD MAKEOVER by telling about his "unsung moment." That moment that you knew he really was comfortable in his own skin.

A photo, a video, a blog about your husband.

Might even score you some brownie points with him.

And how fabulous would it be to win a backyard makeover for him?

Of course, your husband will have to beat out mine....

Hi there! I'm a new reader:)

I'm glad you posted about that Dove Men's Body Wash because I got 3 bottles for free a couple weeks ago at Walgreen's for my hubby! Sounds like he's going to like it!

Ooooh! The Husband is a sensitive guy skin-wise too! And we already use Dove, so we'll have to check this out! Thanks!

I've tried Dove womens' products and they do what they say they do. It doesn't surprise me about the guy stuff. The thing I like best about Dove is the olderwomen ad campaign. Graceful aging personified!

As for the Big Guy, he's been using the same kind of soap (Irish Spring I think) for just about the entire time I've known him. Try something new?? Not my guy!

Oh what fun! I have to say, too, that I loved their new commercials during the Super Bowl! They were really fantastic!!
Off to enter "my man" in the contest...he just doesn't know it yet! :)
