A Peek into Babbleboxx for Men

Over the years I’ve been considered an influencer. I guess the blog has given my a bit of a spotlight and I’ve been able to share my thoughts and ideas for hot products, adventures and technology.  Babbleboxx has reached out and shared with me their Babblebox for Men. What is Babbleboxx you ask? Babbleboxx places Brand specific products in the hands of social influencers and trendsetters to post, pin, snap, tweet and share a message across their social channels and tribes for unique brand exposure.

I’m just a small fish in a big influencer pond but Babblebox hit the mark with their offerings.Babblebox for men

CASIO EQB500

Casio’s EDIFICE collection reflects a distinct sense of style by providing men with features that are ideal for professional and weekend lifestyles. The collection speaks to upwardly, mobile men whose goals lie anywhere from the boardroom to the ballpark. As a watch wearer and collector I was impressed with the luxury aesthetic this timepiece gives. The large face, stainless steel band, solar powered battery, daily alarm, World Time for accurate timekeeping and Techside (Bluetoooth connectivity) I wear this with joy.Casio’s EDIFICE timepiece

2(X)IST Men’s Activewear

The 2(X)IST Men’s Activewear collection is designed to support you from total relaxation to game changing performance. Featuring moisture wicking fabric and innovative design, these pieces are just a small glimpse into the active lifestyle of the 2(X)IST man and woman.Th designs received were trendy and had great style. The boy took the shirt and the youngest took the shorts for running. She said she’ll grow into them but the next day said she slept in them and that they were the comfiest shorts she’s ever had.   

Old Spice Sweat Defense and Hair Pomade

If you knew me a few years ago you saw me bald.  For about a year the wife encouraged me to grow my hair back. The Old Spice Hair Pomade works great and has that authentic manly smell without being dated. This isn’t the Old Spice from our grandfather’s days. Old Spice offers a complete product portfolio for today’s man for grooming, hair care and more, including anti-antiperspirants, deodorants, body washes, body sprays, shampoos, hair stylers, electric razors and trimmers, shave gels, after shaves, colognes. I already use the Fiji Body Wash each day so the Sweat Defense Anti-Antiperspirant is a great addition.

Babbleboxx is a great way to be introduced to new brands, not so new brands with a new product or up and coming trends. Keep an eye out for Babbleboxx on Instagram and what other influencers are saying about the brands that are arriving on their doorsteps. Personally I’d welcome just about any for the modern day Renaissance man; cigars, tools, cologne, tie, money clip, magazine subscription or app downloads. I’m open to trying anything once and giving something a chance.

NIVEA Allows Me to Look and Feel Good

Looking and feeling good is extremely important and it can set your tone for the whole day.  Recently I received a few Nivea products that make me feel and look really good.

Here is what I received:

  • NIVEA FOR MEN Platinum Protect Deodorizing Body Wash – This 3-in-1 deodorizing hair and body wash with Smart Deo Technology removes dirt and odor causing substances with an intense foaming formula.  It provides a Platinum-level clean without drying out your skin and leaves an invigorating scent.
  •  NIVEA FOR MEN Moisturizing Face Wash – Moisturizing Face Wash is an effective cleansing gel formula, with menthol and skin conditioning Vitamin E, for men who want thoroughly clean skin without that dry skin feeling
  •  NIVEA FOR MEN Replenishing Post Shave Balm – A mild, non-greasy formula with special moisturizers, Vitamin E and Provitamin B5 that delivers long-lasting moisture for healthy looking skin.

I gave the body wash to Shaun as I still use old fashion bar soap and he loves it.  He told me he likes how it makes him smell after his shower which is funny considering he is only 9 years old.  I guess Shaun wants to smell good for the girls at school.  I have been using the face wash as well as the post shave balm and am very pleased so far.  I have sensitive skin which means I break out pretty easy so I am always looking for a face wash that will clean my face without breaking me out and so far the Nivea face wash has been doing just that.  I also LOVE the post shave balm because again I have sensitive skin especially my neck area so my skin often gets irritated after I shave and the post shave balm has really helps sooth my skin.

All in all I am very happy with the Nivea for Men products because they make me feel good and feeling good gives you that confidence you need to get through the day. If you are looking for a gift for that man on your list this holiday season take a look at the NIVEA for Men Product line because I am sure you will find something that they will love.

New Balance made in the US

You won’t find many sandals or flip flops in Rob’s closet. In fact other than his work shoes, 1 pair of slippers and 1 pair of slides all he owns are sneakers. He loves sneakers of all kinds and ends up keeping them for a really long time. Even the garage has a stash of sneakers that are now only worth mow the lawn or cleaning the car.

new balance 990 AlignNew Balance have been Rob’s go to sneaker for years. He loves the fit and styles that go with everyday clothes. This Father’s Day Rob got another pair of sneakers to start the summer off fresh.

The New Balance 990 is what I would call a throwback. Rob and Shaun have both had this shoe in the past and it’s one that they lean towards when picking out new shoes. What we like especially about this shoe is it is/or mostly made in the US.

New Balance is the only athletic shoe company that currently manufactures or assembles shoes in the USA. Calling some already existing historic and shoe manufacturing facilities home is a great way for New Balance to nestle itself into the little communities.

Align is a collection of men’s training apparel that is designed to give visual cues during weight training. The wicking fabric pulls the perspiration away from the body allowing body to stay cool and dry. The weight of the shirt feels much high quality than other sport shirts that Rob purchases.

New Balance will be staying a staple in Rob’s closet for a long time.

Norelco Senso Touch 3D Review and Giveaway

I am not sure where I stand when it comes to shaving but I would love to know if I am the minority or the majority.  Do men love to shave?  I will be honest and say I 100% hated shaving until I received the Norelco Senso Touch 3D electric shaver. I would think ahead on what days I would have to shave for work and knew those days I would be irritated.

I know you are going to say that I need to say that because I received this for review but I am serious when I say this is the best shaver I have ever tried. I still don’t love to shave but I also don’t hate it like I used to.  My skin is extremely sensitive so I could only shave in the shower when my face was wet and the hairs were soft otherwise my skin would get so irritated and cut up but with the Senso Touch 3D I am able to shave when I get out of the shower with no problems at all.

The Norelco Senso Touch 3D (1290x) is a wet and dry electric shaver so I now have options.  I can use the shaver in the shower if I want which I still haven’t done or once I get out which I have done probably 25 times already.  With a tradition razor and shaving cream I would only shave twice a week otherwise my face would be all messed up but now that I am using the Norelco Senso Touch 3D I am able to shave daily with ZERO problems meaning no skin irritation or anything.  When I was in college I tried using an electric shaver and I HATED it so I was very hesitant when I received the Senso Touch 3D but I am pleasantly surprised and will NEVER go back to my old razor, we are through!!!

Here are a few highlights:

  • Philips GyroFlex 3D system adjusts seamlessly to every curve
  • UltraTrack heads catch every hair with just a few strokes
  • SensoTouch Shavers with patented Super Lift&Cut Action
  • Aquatec seal for comfortable dry & refreshing wet shaves
  • Smooth, low-friction SkinGlide to minimize irritation

The Norelco Senso Touch 3D is super easy to use as well as clean.  It has given me a shave that my traditional razor could never give me.  It is close and like I mentioned it doesn’t irritate my skin which is huge because I wouldn’t shave just so I could avoid the uncomfortable feeling.  I’ve never used an electric razor and heard lots of things like it would take weeks for your skin to get used to it but the 1st night I was impressed.  Instead of shaving 2-3 times a week I can now shave nightly if I want and not worry about my skin afterwards.

The Senso Touch 3D is a shaver that I will be using for very long time.

Luckily we are offering this same shaver to ONE lucky Look What Mom Found…and Dad too reader.  Check out the Rafflecopter Widget below for entry rules and extra opportunities to win.

Look 5lbs Lighter | Giveaway WSRW Blog Party


Like lingerie only better, Yummie Tummie is a slimming shaping garment that can be worn but doesn’t need to be hidden like tradition shapewear.

Unlike most shapewear that compress your bust and roll up, the Yummie Tummies’ cotton bust and hip panels appear to the outsider as a normal tank top; meanwhile the secret midsection panel is smoothing and shaping your middle, eliminating approximately five pounds off your appearance.

I wear tanks under almost everything. It gives a buffer against itchy sweaters, cleavage control with button downs and warmth under sweats and long sleeve tees. The Yummie Tummie does all of these along with some smoothing of the bumps and rolls. I have a drawer full of traditional super tight suction action shapewear that I love but they aren’t for everyday. The Yummie Tummie Skinny Tank has been a part of my wardrobe for about 2 weeks and I love it. I know I need to order more because I always grab it before any other tanks in my drawer. It doesn’t transform me into a svelte sexy beast but it does give a smoother look without the uncomfortable binding and rolling of other garments.

There are more than just tanks to choose from too! Yummie Tummie carries shaping lingerie, camis, tees and dresses. They’ve recently introduced a collection of Men’s Shapewear using the same hidden slimming panel. The smoothing is on the inside with a top layer of stretch cotton and no visible seams on the outside. This new Yummie basic will give you all of the versatility your wardrobe requires with a chic and sleek, show it off look!

Win a Yummie Tummie Tank for yourself from LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too!. Visit Yummie Tummie and tell me which garment would be best for you.

Smooth Shaving with Fogless Mirror

No more nicks or missed spots because of a foggy or soapy mirror. With the Fogless Shower Mirror Rob can now get a perfect shave using both hands in a crystal clear mirror.

It really is that easy; fill with hot/warm water, wipe away drops and use.

One of the tricks I have always used to keep shower mirrors fog-free was to rub it slightly with soap. It kinda works but then the suds distort the image. All of our shower mirrors also tend to become handhelds because the suction cups or adhesive fail. The Toilet Treet Fogless Mirror has surprisingly worked really well for the past couple weeks. it’s worked so well I’ve started using it to tweeze, apply facial masks and use facial scrubs.  It hasn’t even fallen once! I recommend picking one of these up for as a great holiday gift.

191 Unlimited offers style for Men and Boys

I know I’ve mentioned before how low-key and laid-back my kids are with the way they dress. Both Shaun and sabreena are jeans and tees masters. When it’s time to kick it up a notch I want to make sure Shaun is not only looking good but wearing something that is comfortable.

191 Unlimited is a collection of clothes for BOYS and men. Using 4 key principles: comfort, affordability, fit and attention to detail these stylish button-down shirts have an air of sophistication without being stuffy. 191 Unlimited was started with $191, 2 best friends, a trip to the casino and a vision. A successful and fashionable clothing line was born and can be found throughout Hollywood on the likes of Tom Brady from the NE Patriots and Taboo of the BlackEyed Peas.

Shaun received Montreux right before the holidays. It’s a deep eggplant color with pinstripes and a diamond pattern on the inside cuff and collar. These details stood out as he wore it casually with jeans and unbutton at top. Not to brag but my boy is handsome and this shirt really brought out the little man in him. I’m eyeing a couple shirts for Rob, thinking ahead to spring family pictures and them looking their best.

Check out 191 Unlimted online or in selected Macy’s, Nordstroms and other specialty stored found here.
