You may remember a couple of months ago, Madhouse Daddy was very happy to receive some Dove Men+Care products to try out. You can read our review of their face wash and shaving foam here. Well, he's been spoilt again and this time received some shower gel and deodorant from the range to try out.
I discreetly put the two bottles of shower gel in the shower stall to see if he'd notice and he wandered downstairs, freshly showered, mentioning the nice texture and zingy scent that isn't overpowering. We received two fragrances - Fresh Awake and Clean Comfort. As an Original Source and Lush fan, I personally love big, brash, in-your-face fragrances that make the whole bathroom smell lovely when you have a shower so I thought the fragrances were slightly too discreet, but maybe that's a girl thing - Madhouse Daddy thought the strength of the scent was spot on. We both preferred the citrussy Fresh Awake fragrance but the Clean Comfort one has a nice fresh scent too. Both products (and indeed the rest of the range) use MicroMoisture technology to instantly tackle the causes of skin dryness. They're not actually labelled as shower gel - they are "Body and Face Wash" - and Madhouse Daddy said that he liked the fact that he could use them on his face without it lathering up too much, avoiding him getting a mouthful of bubbles or stinging eyes.
On to the deodorants. We received the sprays but you can also get roll ons. We again got two products from the range to try out - Invisible Dry and Extra Fresh. Both fragrances are very nice and Madhouse Daddy said that they did keep him perfectly dry and smelling fresh as a daisy all day ! As well as anti-perspirant ingredients, the deodorants also contain advanced 1/4 moisturiser technology to help reduce irritation. The Invisible Dry deodorant contains translucent anti-perspirant ingredients to avoid white marks on skin and clothes and promises 48 hour protection.
Madhouse Daddy said he was very impressed and would definitely buy them again.
