As the mother of two boys, I spend way more time thinking about body odor than I ever imagined possible. My boys are sweet, loving, caring guys, but they do not always smell fresh. Not only that, but they sort of know it, and it causes THEM stress.
I have one guy that just started college and one who just went into the fifth grade, and as they’ve gotten older they’ve definitely gotten more self-conscious. They care about how others see them, not just academically, but personally, too. We talk a lot about being your best self and moving out of your comfort zone, and I’ve found that one way to help them do that is by helping them with grooming. If you look confident, you feel confident!
It’s taken a little bit to hit on the right products that put them in control of their hygiene, but AXE has worked really well for both my sons. AXE has a line of personal washes for the shower that smell the way my guys want to smell and don’t make them feel like they’re using my products.
The AXE Sport Blast Body Wash is a 2-in-1 men’s body and hair wash. It works great for throwing into a gym bag. At home, they tend to use either the AXE Apollo Body Wash, a classically masculine fragrance with an addictive edge or AXE Phoenix Body Wash, a classic, fruity fragrance featuring lavender, geranium, and citrus. The AXE Detailer Tool is kind of fun, too. It’s a dual-sided brush that both exfoliates and gently cleans. The scrub side of the Detailer removes dead skin and debris from rough spots like elbows and heels. Soft mesh on the flipside lathers to clean sensitive areas. The best part is that you can simply hang it to dry in the shower after getting clean.
Now through September 1st, CVS has a buy one get one 50% off deal, which is super convenient for me since I already go to CVS a lot for back to school supplies. Learn more here!
I’m not saying that my son’s freshness is the most important part of the school year, but if I can give him just a little more confidence, that’s a good thing in my book.
How do you help your kids, boys or girls, feel more confident at the beginning of the school year?
