Old Spice - Smellcome To Manhood - Review & Giveaway


What's up!!? My name is Matthew, aka Matt and I'll be taking over this lady's blog, who I like to call Mom, to talk to you about Old Spice and some of their new products. I was already familiar with some of the products that Old Spice had out there, because my mom is a crazy coupon lady and she bought me a ton of stuff, and there were some scents that were pretty legit and other ones that I would probably use just to spray my friends with so they'd stink.

I know that other brands out there are pretty much forbidden at our house, cause I had a sleep over and my friends started spraying each other with them, and my mom said "No more ___ spraying, or else everybody has to go home" To be honest, the whole hallway smelled bad, so I kind of stood away from that brand.

Then my mom tells me that we're supposed to review Old Spice and I'm like, "why?" and she says "cause I said so" and well, here we are.

So, alright, let's start off with this crazy "Over the Top" briefcase I got in the mail. It's off the hook, I wasn't expecting all that, so a big shout out to Old Spice for making this happen!



Alright, now check it out. I got this pretty cool briefcase, inside there was a #SmellcometoManhood Certificate of Achievement, 3 Body Sprays, the movie that my dad says is epic "Over the Top" starring Sylvester Stallone, the Art of Manliness book, some duct tape, Old Spice ear buds, Old Spice Wood Flash drive and Old Spice Hair Styling Product.



I'm going to review one by one:

Old Spice Refresh Body Spray - Fiji Scent is pretty cool, it reminds me of the beach. Like summer. 

Old Spice Refresh Body Spray - Bear Glove, well first of all, you can't complain about the name, I mean, who doesn't want to have a bear glove, whatever that is! I use this one on a daily, and it doesn't stink up my entire classroom. Girls don't like that stuff.

Old Spice Refresh Body Spray - Swagger, I don't like the name, but I like the scent. I kinda hate when people say "Swag" or "Swagger" I'm just cool all the time.

Old Spice Putty - Forge, when I got this kit I had a mohawk, so I used some gel that kept it up for days. My mom used this one on my little brother because he kept his hair down, and it worked. It wasn't stiff and she could comb through it, she was happy, so I'm thinking it works good. I know it smells good.

#SmellComeToManhood Duct Tape - I made this awesome body spray holder, and yeah, you can make or fix anything with Duct Tape.



I made this Old Spice Refresh Body Spray utility belt, so any new recruit can carry it around and spray his friends.

You gotta remember not to over spray!



Follow the 4 steps above and you'll be fine. 

The Art of Manliness - Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man by Brett and Kate McKay - This eight chapter book has lessons for every man to learn. My favorite was when my dad and me laughed for hours about the proper way to "Hug your friends", find out in Chapter Two "The Friend": The Mechanics of the Man Hug (me and my dad laughed for a good 20 minutes, and then my mom made us practice it, and it wasn't that funny anymore). I'm keeping this one and passing it down to my little brothers.

Over the Top starring Sylvester Stallone - 



Hawk, Vegas and Arm Wrestling, trust me, that's all you need to know about this movie that was popular when my mom and dad were little. 

Old Spice Wood Flash Drive - That's top secret stuff, no gentlemen should speak of, so I guess you'll have to win our giveaway to find out. It's good stuff, I can guarantee you that.

Last but not least, my Certificate of Achievement. My mom is like those commercials when the mom's cry about their son's becoming men (shh..don't tell her she's creepy like them, then she'll start crying all over again.

My friends and I tried to put together a funny video for you, to show you how we #smellcometomanhood and how scent responsibly, but I got in trouble and my friends can't come over. I think she said it was okay to repost and tell my friends about the giveaway on my IG, we'll see how that goes. Guess, part of becoming a man is getting good grades (or that's what my mom said).

A note from the blogger:

The #smellcometomanhood commercials are just how I feel, this is my "baby" my first born. This is how I remember him:
