New Dove Men+Care Elements!



I am always looking for ways to make everyone smell better, especially my boys, 2 of which are almost teenagers and are already starting to smell up the place. My husband is allergic to certain brands and fragrances so I also have to keep that in mind when shopping for products which will keep the stink, and not to overpriced.

Dove is a brand which I turn to often for my husband and boys, now they have come out with more amazing products the new Dove Men+Care Elements which features:


First off you have the Charcoal+Clay elements which come in 2 products:
Body & Face wash

• Infused with Charcoal + Clay cleanses skin without irritation
• A boost of energizing freshness
• Draws out and washes away dirt and oil from skin’s surface
• Clinically proven to help fight dryness
• Micromoisture activates on skin and rinses easily
• Developed specifically for men’s skin

Healthy looking skin starts with choosing the right men’s body wash. Dove Men+Care Charcoal + Clay Body Wash is infused with clay and charcoal and formulated with Micromoisture technology for skin that’s left feeling renewed and refreshed. With the effective Dove Men+Care formula, it provides thorough cleansing and a powerful boost of freshness. Specifically developed for men’s skin, Dove Men+Care Charcoal + Clay Body Wash uses Micromoisture technology to provide care. It activates on skin and is clinically proven to help fight skin dryness.

My husband works as a groundsman at the Oaks National Golf Course here in Kissimmee, FL and he is always out in the sun. Since he is out all day in the heat, he often has very dry skin, I had him try out the body wash and right away I noticed a change in how he felt, and wow he smells so good now! I love the scent of these new products!

Fortifying Shampoo:

• Fortifying charcoal shampoo purifies your hair, leaving it visibly healthy
• Enriched with charcoal for a deep clean
• Specifically engineered shampoo for men
• Strengthens hair fiber for added resilience
• Fresh scent for up to 24 hours

Harness the purifying benefits of charcoal with Dove Men+Care Charcoal Fortifying Shampoo. Engineered for men, this charcoal enriched shampoo leaves hair visibly healthy and invigorated. The best shampoo for men strengthens hair fiber for healthy and resilient hair. This Dove formula is enriched with deep-cleaning charcoal to leave your hair looking healthy and you feeling fresh – no matter what.

This one was used with the boys, my husband doesn't have the hair to enjoy this product LOL. My sons all used a small amount & each one of them now have a silkily head of hair, along with smelling amazing!

The next Dove Men+Care Elements is the Mineral Powder + Sandalwood which comes in 3 products:
Dry Spray:
• An antiperspirant that is tough on sweat, not on skin
• Engineered to provide 48-hour effective sweat + odor protection
• ¼ moisturizer technology protects skin
• Inspired by Earth’s elements minerals + sandalwood
• Clinically proven non-irritating formula
• Goes on instantly dry

Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Dry Spray provides lasting protection with the essence of ingredients inspired by Earth’s elements. Combining the essence of sandalwood and mineral powder with a powerful antiperspirant – it’s clinically proven to control wetness for 48 hours. Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Dry Spray goes on instantly dry. Formulated with ¼ moisturizer to protect skin, it delivers a lasting feeling of freshness. This is an antiperspirant spray for men that’s tough on sweat, not on skin.

I love the dry sprays, because if my boys forget to put on arm deodorant I can just spray them up with this. It is also great for vacation because it is something which can be shared, so you don't have to pack a stick for each kid. Again another amazing smell, at this point I am breaking down on which I love more.

Antiperspirant:
• An antiperspirant that is tough on sweat, not on skin
• Engineered to provide 48-hour effective sweat + odor protection
• ¼ moisturizer technology protects skin
• Inspired by Earth’s elements mineral powder + sandalwood

Feel refreshed with Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Antiperspirant Stick. Mineral powder and sandalwood: two elements known for their abilities to absorb moisture and calm the skin.

Designed specifically for men, this Dove Men+Care antiperspirant is clinically proven to control wetness. Combining the essence of Mineral Powder + Sandalwood for a boost of freshness with each use, Dove Men+Care antiperspirant offers protection that's tough on sweat, not skin.

This product was great for the husband and middle son, they both spend a lot of time outside and well in FL it is NEVER cold so we all sweat our brains out. This put a end to the wet armpit look for them, and thank god!

Deodorant:

• Tough on odor, not on skin
• Engineered to provide 48-hour effective odor protection
• ¼ moisturizer technology strengthens skin against irritation
• Inspired by Earth’s elements minerals powder + sandalwood
• Provides a boost of freshness that leaves underarms feeling refreshed
• Easy to apply men’s deodorant stick

Choosing Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Deodorant Stick means choosing powerful protection against odor, but not having to choose between strength and comfort. Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Deodorant Stick provides 48 hours of constant protection and uses ¼ moisturizer technology to protect the skin. Designed for men, this deodorant stick combines the essence of mineral powder and sandalwood for a boost of lasting freshness. Dove Men+Care Mineral Powder + Sandalwood Deodorant Stick is a strong, durable men’s deodorant stick that’s tough on odor, not on your skin.

This is prefect for my oldest and youngest son, although they stink, it is more because of hormones then sweat. Which it being a solid makes for easy application, which makes for a happy mom and sisters.


Finally we have probably my favorite of the 3 the Minerals + Sage, which I guess Dove agreed as well that this probably is the best smelling of the 3 (although they all smell wonderful and it was a hard decision) because this line has 6 products! They are:
Bar Soap:

Just For Men(R) Launches Control GX; The First Shampoo that Reduces Gray



If you're a male who deals with gray I am sure you have heard of Just For Men, which is a dye which is made for men. I know my husband who is 33 has a ton of gray but he doesn't wanna take the time to dye his hair which is understandable because it takes time and patience, but what if there was a way to get the results of the dye but without waiting........


Just For Men has come out with a whole new product just for those who want to try it out but just don't have the time or patience. Just For Men has launched Control GX which is a shampoo that reduces gray. It is super simple to use and best part is it's a shampoo meaning you already wash your hair while showering so why not work on losing that gray while you shower. Apply the desired amount to your head, leave in for a minute and wash out, over time roughly 10 days you will no longer have gray hair! Yeah, it's that simple! A fair warning to you though, make sure to wash any spots which the product might hit the tub or you might have a angry wife to deal with because product could stain if left.

You can find the new Control GX Shampoo and also The 2 in 1 Shampoo/Conditioner at your local retail stores. You can also purchase online here.

Sydney Paige Backpack the ones which give back!


This school year I will have all 5 of my kids in school! One thing I have learned is if you get a cheap backpack you are gonna need another before the end of the year. Sydney Paige are heavy duty cute durable backpack which will last your kid the whole school year.

What makes Sydney Paige super special is that for every backpack you purchase they donate one to a child in need. So not only are you getting a good quality backpack but you're also giving back. Backpacks are not just for kids, anyone who knows me I rather have a backpack any day of the week than a purse. When I was in the baby stage, I never used a diaper bag, sure they are cute but really annoying, always having to open a flap then a zipper and then god knows what else BLAH. Backpacks were the way to go! I could place diapers, clothing, food on the inside along with having bottles, on the outside ready to grab whenever needed. Again for every backpack you purchase from Sydney Paige another is donated to a kid in need. Whether it be for your kids or yourself Sydney Paige is the way to go.

The backpack I received is the Young Explorers/ Taggart Laptop Backpack. This backpack has reflective strips so if outside at night you will be spotted, as one smaller zipper compartment for things like change, or pencils, something you wanna find fast and which is smaller, it is on the front top. Then 2 bigger zipper compartments, 2 bottle carriers on either size, like mentioned above great for water bottles and baby bottles. 6 straps to hold markers or such on the front, also great for those long tube bubble wands. On the inside it is lined with a soft felt, and foam on the inside to protect your laptop/tablet. The straps which go on your shoulders are wide and padded, along with a extra clip which you can place in front of you for better support when carrying your items. I really love this backpack, I took it for a test run at SeaWorld, and had all kinds of snacks, drinks and a change of clothes for the younger ones, and never felt worn out, or sore from carrying it.

You can check out all the great backpacks from Sydney Paige by visiting their website here.

Got Funk? Lose it with Funkaway!


In this house the men out number us girls. I have 3 boys, husband and even the pets are MALES. Well one thing we know is men stink more than us ladies :) So often after a day of work, or play they come home stinking, and they leave this smell in the bathroom, the house, etc. What makes it all worse is it combines with the already pet smell that has its ups and downs depending on how long the dogs are outside. 

Thankfully there is a new product called Funkaway! It is a odor eliminating spray which can be used any place you can think of. Okay so I mostly blame men for making the stink but lets face it us women have our moments as well, which sometimes it can happen at the movies or dinner well any place public. Funkaway comes in a small 3.4 fl. oz bottle so you can keep it within your purse so you always can ward off the funk. Best thing about this product is it kills the funk instead of just combining its scent with that of which we made ourselves. 

You can check out the whole line of products here
