I work for a living in a professional environment that requires me to dress to the nines daily, which means looking good, smelling good, and making an impression to the students I work with on a daily basis. Thus, I am always looking for products that will make this simple and convenient and that will leave me feeling great and refreshed. While I had used Irish Spring products in the past, I had never heard of their Signature for Men product series until I was asked to try it out by #CollectiveBias recently.
As mentioned, it is not that I am in a job that is overly smelly, or that I tend to get all sweaty on the job either, but for me #MySignatureMove is that I have to always look, smell and portray professionalism at all times when on the job, which is not always easy, but it is something that I have to do.
I mean really, there are times when I wish I could simply put on my Jeans and a T-Shirt, skip the shower, and head to work in a grunge look, but I know that this would definitely be frowned upon and it would not come across well to the students I work with daily!
That being said I was excited to be able to try out the new Irish Spring Signature for Men series of products. I found the near me, the closest stores that carried these products, at least now, were a few of the Walmart stores (Super Walmart stores) that were near me, so I got up early and hit the deserted aisles to find them. I found the nestled within the original Irish Springs products that I already was aware of. I had a bit of a challenge figuring out which to try so I decided to grad a few to give a number of them a shot!
I did a little more research when I got home and found that the new Irish Spring signature products are specially designed for men to keep us clean and feeling fresh and I have to say that after using them I was impressed. The first day I used it, I actually had a co-worker come in my office and say, you smell good. I was like, what??? She continued and said, there is a nice smell in the office that I have not smelled before. My first impression was to say, “what… I never smelled good before?”, but I held my tongue and simply said “thank you”.
This conversation made me think though, that maybe my own routine did need to change. I mean, if after only one day of using this (and this was the only change I had made) I received one nice comment such as this, it probably would continue in the future (and I was quick to ask the co-worker if the smell was too over the top and she said no).
I liked both the body wash/shampoo and the bar soap that the Irish Spring Signature Products provide. The soap is ingrained with some great ingredients and it is something that is not abrasive to the skin which is important for me. I typically have to look for soap that is not highly fragrant or with too many unnatural ingredients. Sometimes soaps with these unnatural ingredients dry out my skin and irritate it. This is one reason the Irish Spring products worked well for me. Irish Spring worked to give men like me what they need and with how big of a bar this is, I will not be needing to get new bars of soap anytime in the future!
All of this being said I have to say that I have a new respect for Irish Spring! I love how easy it now is to get feeling clean and smelling great! I don’t know whether or not Irish Spring will be adding new scents or products to this line in the future but I hope that they do. Until then though I am very happy with the line itself and I have now changed up my morning routine to add in these products, and am so happy that I did!
