Aveeno products for your man?? Yes please!

I am surrounded by men in my house. My husband, my two sons, heck….. even my dog is a male. I think they were getting a bit down that mom was the only one getting goodies in the male, so needless to say there were cheers when I opened a box containing Aveeno’s new Men’s Collection! A brand I know, a brand I trust, now makes a Men’s Collection? How amazing is THAT!?

New! Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua

 

 

I had the chance to try a sample of this on my hubby and I am loving the scent. With a top note of cucumber I wasn’t sure what I would think but the scents all blend together beautifully.

A very clean and sexy scent makes you want to take a little bite out of your man.
