GIVEAWAY: get summer-ready skin with Dove

Friday, April 8, 2011

Abouta  year ago, we ran a feature on Dove’s Men+Care Shower Tool – I’m not sure if anyone else remembers the comments thread, but I loved it! The reason why is simple: turns out, a ton of you had KP as well! I loved being able to share a simple, effective solution with you, and it was great to find out how common it is.

So… what’s KP? If you haven’t heard of it before, Keretosis Pilaris is a skin condition that involves rough, often red bumps on the skin. It affects about 40% adults (and even more children), and is usually found on the thighs/bottom and the backs of the arms. It’s nothing to be concerned about in most cases – just a bit of a nuisance! (Stats via Wikipedia.)

But I digress! The point of this post is that Dove Canada has offered to supply a giveaway, and one of our lovely Canadian readers will have the chance to win a Shower Tool of her own (plus a tube of their new shower gel). After all… why should the men get all the good stuff? ;)

The shower gel

I had meant to review the shower gel before running the giveaway, but ran into a bit of a hitch – it’s supposed to be the Sensitive Skin scent-free version, but I actually still find that it’s lightly scented (with that sort of “indiscriminately manly” fragrance). However, it does lather well, and is fairly conditioning for a men’s product. Of course, it doesn’t measure up to something like Olay Quench, but it’s way less harsh than a bar of Ivory!

I do have one of the new shampoos sitting in my shower a well, so I’ll try to get that review up soon… I’ve actually really been liking it recently!

FYI: both the new shower gel and the shampoos are silicone- and paraben-free ;)

    here's my comment: i would love to win this so my man can try it. he has KP and he's asked me what to do about it and i never knew what to do about it since I don't have it (we're pretty much the exact opposite in terms of skin type, since we met 6 years ago – only time will tell once aging sets in)

    I would love to try this shower tool for myself as it would be great for exfoliating, especially the feet with summer sandal weather coming!

  5. I am not Canadian. But thank you for including the paraben-free tags :D Good luck to the Canadians :D I remember seeing that post and thinking, "Thank you for bringing up KP!" Strangely enough, it was more prevalent on my upper arms when I lived in HI, but here (WA), it's not so bad. I don't know if it is because it's so much colder/drier here, I put on lotion much more frequently…that does seem to help, for whatever reason.

    I tweeted: http://twitter.com/#!/GabyFauchon/status/56881353
    I'm interested in the shower tool because I have nothing similar and most exfoliating products aren't abrasive enough for my liking.

    Thank you!

    I was a tad disappointed that the wash was scented >_< when I asked about it, apparently because of the chemical ingredients they are allowed a certain amount of scenting. I guess otherwise ppl would be off put by the smell of the chemicals…of hink it was bad and not give it a try. But yeah sad to realize that. But learned something new, cause I never understood why things that claimed scent free were not really scent free. Wish try wouldn't call it scent free cause apparently there isn't such a thing…
