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 ;)
