Hot Dad Essentials...and Giveaway

After being asked to take a look at a bunch of products for men, I decided that I should post a review of the few products that really stand out to me. Now I know that many of you are going to think I am weird(er) due to the product mix…but keeping track of the time while you rub lotion all over yourself and then slip into a snug pair of boxer briefs…can be an important thing for us Hot Dads.

The first product that I will tell you about is one of fashion, strength, functionality, durability and manliness…Casio’s Waveceptor watch. This stylish timepiece is rugged, yet fancy enough to wear with a suit. Among its many features, the:

Atomic Timekeeping, offering pinpoint accuracy, allows the watch to automatically receive time calibration signal updates on a daily basis from transmitters based on the user’s home city setting.
Solar Power technology features a unique power saving function and allows Waveceptor timepieces to energize themselves through even the lowest level of illumination including natural, solar or artificial light. Approx. battery life: 6 months on full charge (without further exposure to light)
…are two of my favorites.

Other features include; Solar Powered, 100M Water Resistant, Auto LED Light w/Afterglow, World Time (30 cities), 1/100 Sec. Stopwatch, 3 Daily Alarms / Daily Alarm and Hourly Time Signal.

For all of you ladies out there…if your man (or men for those of you who have not settled on one yet) is in need of a new watch…this is the one.

Available at my.casio.com for $200.00 – your Hot Dad will be that much hotter!!

****I am happy to announce that Casio is going to send one of these beauties to one of our lucky readers. All you have to do is comment that you want to enter to win the Waveceptor. (and let me know what you thought of the entire post.) The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, February 10th. Let the commenting begin!!!!


As for the underwear that I mentioned above, I don’t even know where to start. Well…OK, I do. I’ll start by saying that I had no freakin clue that there were so many different choices when it came to men’s underwear. I thought the choices were; tighty whities, loose boxers, boxer briefs and …commando.

I was sent a few pairs of underwear by Baskit and they were all very different. I liked two of them and out of those…LOVED one. I don’t know if I am going to turn into some freaky underwear snob or what but I don’t think I will ever buy anything other than Baskit’s Pure Boxer Brief.

In this snug, but not constricting, work of art, made my ‘control panel’ felt like a king. Like a Condor safely tucked away in its nest…or a cobra gently coiled up in it protective ‘baskit’.

I really don’t know or don’t have the education to talk about the technical aspects of undergarments’ manufacturing, but I will say that these babies will make any man feel like a Hot Dad.

Baskit’s Pure Boxer Brief is the epitome of Earth friendly attire. Available in three different colors: black, white, and natural white. While all of Baskit’s Pure products are made of 100% certified organic cotton, the natural white is slightly different in that the material was not chemically treated or bleached. Each design features palm green piping and waistband accents. A hot pair of underwear for the pure (and not-so-pure) underwear shoppers out there.

Available at their website, these masterpieces sell for a mere $24


Now…we are to the lotion part of this review. I know that generally speaking men like anything with aloe in it. That being said…there are right lotions for different situations. Some lotions are good for …intimate situations and stay slick and smooth…and then there is the every day lotions that you put on after a shower.

We are going to talk about the every day lotions here.

The skin on my legs, elbows and hands tend to get pretty dry. I have tried many different lotions and have, over the years, begun using lotion less and less. I have found it too bothersome and frankly not all that important to have baby smooth skin. I hated applying lotion and then not being able to get out of my bathroom…as the handle was too greasy. I hated pulling up my pants or putting on my shirt to find greasy marks from the lotion on my hands. I hated the irritation and stinging after forgetting about the lotion and rubbing my eye with a lotion covered finger. So…I pretty much gave up.

That is when the good folks over at Vaseline contacted me about their new men’s line… Vaseline® MEN Body & Face lotion.

Vaseline teamed up with former NFL star and current FOX NFL Sunday co-host Michael Strahan to promote the line of lotion designed especially for men. The Fast-Absorbing formula is great for guys who don’t want to spend a lot of time on grooming because it dries in just 15 seconds. In spirit of that, Michael is sharing his 15-minute, quick workout routines on www.strongerskin.com.

As a New York Giants fan…anything that my buddy Mr. Strahan endorses…I’ll take a look at. It turned out that I really loved the products. The lotion dries faster than anything I’ve tried before, has a great ‘manly’ scent and…actually has been really helping my dry skin areas.

Now I know that most of us men want nothing more than to roll out of bed, shower (if we smell bad), throw on some clothes, have some coffee and then get off to do whatever it is that we do…all without adding to our morning schedule. With the exception of maybe some of the less manly guys out there, I know that the last thing we want to do is add things that are found in the “health and Beauty” section of the store.

GO GET THIS PRODUCT!!!!! I guarantee that you will all feel like the Hot, Musky, Smooth-skinned, Manly, Kings that you know you are.

You can find this new line pretty much anywhere and retail for anywhere from $3.00 to $7.00 per bottle.

Karl said...

I'd love that watch. I'm actually in the market for a new one and the Waveceptor looks like it'll satisfy the geek in me. Plus, I do favor analog watches over digital these days.

Tracy DeLuca said...

I want to win the waveceptor! AND that underwear model!

What? You mean the giveaway does not include the underwear model? Bah! Just my luck.

Seriously, I may have to get some of those undies for my man.....

Lindsay said...

I want to win the waveceptor! I'm pleased with the review of the manly face lotion- my husband uses mine, but they just discontinued it, so it would be nice to get him some dude lotion.

amotherworld said...

Cool! I'd love to win the Waveceptor for the dear hubs... and he'd love it even more!

Great post!

peedee said...

Ok then. Nice tent, TentCamper! ;)

I want to win the Waveceptor watch!

I love that underwear! It looks very comfortable!

I've been wondering about that lotion. I've seen a couple advertisements, but haven't really wanted to put the money into it. Now that I know it works, maybe I'll buy a bottle sometime!

Ooooohhh I want to feel those baskits.
I use the female version of those same lotion products and I agree they rock.

I want to enter to win the Waveceptor.

For my dad, since I have no man to give it to

Hi very nice post for watch.and good video for watch and underwear.

LoJo said...

Sign me up, Scotty. Does the underwear model come as a give-away, too? I'd like to order one of those, please.

pam said...

I want to enter to win the Waveceptor.

I too would also like the underwear model. Thanks in advance!

SciFi Dad said...

I don't even know how to spell Wavereceptor. Can I still enter?

Daddy Digest said...

Hey bro, sign me up to win the Waveceptor watch. I have tried that lotion and continue to use it daily. Great post!

James (SeattleDad) said...

With the Waveceptor, I could at least look cool while counting down the time I don't have to do things anymore. Sign me up.

Daddy Files said...

The watch looks very cool. I'd definitely wear it.

As for the rest of the post, it was good until you mentioned Strahan and the New York Giants. As a staunch New England Patriots fan I am still very sore about 2007 and I wish harm upon all of those blue uniformed jerks who spoiled my Pats dynasty and a perfect season with one ridiculously lucky helmet catch by a guy who never even made another NFL reception in his career...

Great. Now I'm having an anxiety attack. At least if I had a watch I could time how long it lasts.

Brandy said...

I bought some of that Vaseline Men's and Stevie really likes it. Which is saying a lot since he *hates* to put lotion on and now he puts it on every night. All by himself.

It's worth every penny!

OM said...

I wouldn't mind a new watch.

My only problem is that I just watched Palin's speech (the one she read off her hand), and she actually said Obama was using calibration waveceptors to control our brainz!

orlund said...

I want to win the Waveceptor. That thing looks pretty sweet.

Like your post, just enough detail but not too long. My attention span is short :)

DaDa Rocks said...

I'd rock that watch! its pretty sweet looking!

the post once again is great - just long enough for my ADD to kickin at the last paragraph.

Awesome watch.

My 14 year old juvenile mind has bad jokes about the lotion. I will refrain.
