Now that summer is here, my always active teenage boy has kicked things into overdrive. We’re spending the majority of the summer at the beach which presents a unique opportunity for him to be even more active than he is during the school year. He can bike. He can run. He can lift weights. He can play basketball. He can get sandy on the beach. Basically, the list of physical activities that he can and does do each and every day is pretty endless. While I love that he loves being active, it’s my job as his mom to ensure that his endless daily activities don’t leave him smelling less than fresh. You see, he’s getting to that age where he wants to run with the boys all day but smell good enough for the girls in the evening. Being a woman myself who loves nothing more than a good smelling man, I recently decided to step in and show my teenage boy the easiest way to stay looking and smelling fresh, while still enjoying all the activities he loves to do.
Now, it’s only fair to tell you that my son is an athlete in every sense of the word. He always cared more about playing the game than how he presents himself afterwards. But, as he’s getting older, I’m beginning to see that change. I’m starting to see more of a man emerge where I little boy once was and while my hubby is great at a number of things with him, it kinda fallen to me when it comes to keeping him fresh. Obviously, there are any number of tips that I can offer to him to keep him looking and smelling fresh but I know that what it really comes down to is using great products to wash away the sweat and keep him fresh and upping his game when he gets dressed. Easy right? Well, that’s exactly what I explained to him during a recent outing to Walmart to stock up on some “man” supplies for his summer bathroom and shower. As we walked up and down the aisles, smelling this and sniffing that, we kept coming back to the AXE products. Now, everybody has likely heard about AXE and their great smelling products but let me tell you, their new Gold line is teenage boy approved in every way.
With the scent of oud wood and fresh vanilla, the AXE Gold products are great smelling without being overpowering and were just what my teenage son needed to feel great about the way he smells this summer, even after going all day. I’ll admit that I may have stood in the aisle sniffing the AXE Gold Antiperspirant, Body Spray, Wash and Style Shampoo and Body Wash because, seriously, they just smell that good. But for me the best part is that they smell right for my teenage son…not too grown up but on his way there. After purchasing all of the products (cause when you’re gonna get fresh you gotta go all out), we headed home so that he could find the best way to incorporate them into his summer vacation routine. Since I knew that I had provided him with the tools that he needs to stay fresh even when he’s crazy active, I simply set back and watched to see how he would incorporate them into his day. His summer activities didn’t change much. He did all the things that he’s been doing since we arrived at the beach.
But when he thought I wasn’t looking, he added a new step to his workout routine.
He loved that he was able to stay fresh without altering his active lifestyle and I loved that he smells so darn good, even when he’s been going at mock speed all day in the hot summer sand.
He’s discovered that AXE Gold products are a welcome (for him AND anyone who is near him) addition to his workout routine, and that he can feel more confident interacting with family, friends and especially the girls he’s meeting this summer after he’s sprayed or applied his AXE Gold products.
While he’s loving AXE Gold products during his active days, I think he’s enjoying even more the fact that when his activities are over, he can freshen up in a quick and easy way and transform from the beach-bound athlete to the almost man that he’s quickly becoming. All it requires is a quick trip through the shower with the line of products he already knows work amazingly well.
It doesn’t take any extra steps to keep him fresh and ready for his ever expanding summer social life. Instead, it just requires ensuring that he’s got AXE Gold products from Walmart at the ready to help wash away the activities of the day and replace them with a fresh and welcome scent that leaves him feeling confident.
I adore knowing that I’m giving my teenage boy all the tools he needs to look amazing, smell fresh and feel confident and it’s so much fun to watch him transform in front of my eyes with help from AXE Gold products at Walmart.
Whatever stage your teenage boy is currently in, I encourage you to give them the confidence that only AXE products can deliver! No matter whether they are playing hard, working hard or relaxing hard, my son agrees that smelling great while he does it all is easy this summer with AXE!
Now it’s your turn! Mamas, grab your sons and head to Walmart to find the AXE Gold products! We highly recommend picking up the AXE Gold Antiperspirant, Body Spray, Wash and Style Shampoo and Body Wash so that your son has everything he needs to be fresh and confident in all his daily activities! Then let him sweat. Let him grow. Let him start to become the man you can see he’s going to be. But through it all, rest easy knowing that he’ll smell great regardless.
Tell me, how do you keep your teenage sons looking and smelling fresh?
