Dove Men+Care Expert Shave Range and Hair Care

Dove Men+Care has just released it’s new shave line titled Expert Shave Range, which consists of a three-step system that will have your skin looking and feeling smooth and healthy. The Expert Shave Range collection is broken down into three-steps; Pre-Shave, Shave, and Post-Shave. I really love the design and aesthetic of each product. Also, Dove introduced a new shampoo called Aqua Impact Shampoo, which smells really great. I had the honor of trying out these products and I must say I am amazed with the results. I try to take good care of my skin as much as possible.  When it comes to shaving I’m always hesitant because of past experiences I have had with razor bumps. I could never find a shaving kit that catered specifically to my skin, which is very sensitive, but Dove Men+Care delivered well. I really enjoyed using the Expert Shave Range collection from Dove Men+Care, after a week of using everything my skin feels great and is ready for the upcoming summer season. 

The Expert Shave Range Steps:

Step 1 Pre-Shave: Products help set men’s skin an beard to be optimally prepared fro shave ahead.

  1.   Exfoliating Pre-Shave Scrub
  2.   Softening Pre-Shave Oil

Step 2 Shave: Formulated to help give men’s skin the protection it needs during shaving with lubrication  for a better blade glide

  1. Smoothing Shaving Cream
  2. Total Comfort Shave Cream 

Step 3 Post-Repair: Products that help soothe and rehydrate skin to help repair after shaving 

  1. Intense Post-Shave Repair Balm

First of all I really enjoy your blog! I recently started up a blog and I'm currently looking to get some exposure and get my name and blog out there any advice!?

Happy to know you enjoy my blog ! My advice to you would be to stay humble and to develop a voice. The exposure will come , just focus on inspiring people and putting out great work that you believe in. Appreciate your journey and how you’re starting off. When I first created this blog I didn’t have a computer or camera. I used the webcam from my classroom to take pictures of my outfits for my style posts. Those moments define who you are as a person, so cherish them.  I think your blog is great so far. Stay true to yourself and blog because you love to do it. Don’t necessary look for exposure, look for a purpose and goal. Just keep doing what you’re doing. Use social media to let people know who you are. You’ve already made the first step by creating your blog. You have my support, so feel free to message me anytime. 

Bro if I wanna upgrade my wardrobe and dress casual / upscale what's some affordable pieces that I should own?

If you’re on a budget I suggest you check out some thrift and consignment stores in your area first . Even though it can be a hit or miss, It can help you with your personal style without breaking the bank. I found some great essentials like a navy blue blazer, wingtips etc through thrifting. But stores like J.Crew, H&M, Gap, Old Navy, Uniqlo are all great places to start for a budget. This will be good for you until you can afford the higher end brands. But to each his own. Just do your research and visit  different stores and try on things to see how they fit and make you feel. It’s all about self-discovery and what you like. Let me know how it goes. hit me up anytime

My top ten essentials: A lot of these pieces I found at the thrift store when I first started my blog 

  • Navy Blue or Gray Blazer
  • White or Light Blue Button Down.
  • A pair of levi jeans to start you off ,
  • Brown Wingtips or Bucks,  
  • Sneakers(New Balance or Nike)
  • Navy Blue Knit Tie 
  • Chinos 
  • Belt
  • Watch
  • Jacket

Who’s Hue

I’m never afraid to mix colors even when the weather isn’t on my side.  Don’t let the elements rain on your parade. Even though this isn’t a super bold look, it has enough color to stay true to my personal style. I always think it’s uplifting to add color to your outfit on those dreary days. What are your favorite colors? What do you think of today’s style post 

I had the privilege to style a few pieces from PeterFieldCustom out of Chicago. The tie I’m wearing is called “The Watlington” and it’s pretty dope and well constructed. I loved the design and colors and thought it would go great with this outfit. Also the ties they design are super customizable , so they will fit your preference.  Stay tuned they’re working on some new products for the spring.

meestahhhh asked:
Hey man, I'm a novice photographer and id like to know what settings do you use to capture every color and background so perfectly without any distortion to the focal point of the image. Also your style is amazing. I'm also currently building my wardrobe into the fashion forward lifestyle. Thanks for keeping up with this blog for so long and inspiring others like myself with your fashion sense.

Thanks man, honored to have you as a reader.  The process towards building your wardrobe is a great one, you honestly learn a lot about who you are as person. I’m still learning so much about my camera, I’ve only had it for almost a year and a half now.  But I’ve learned so many tips and tricks through some influential photographers. Here’s a link to the camera settings I learned from . Nikon D600/610 Settings Hope this helps you 

Let go of the bad habits that are holding you back from being great. Put all your energy into what you love . Focus on your dreams and goals.
