Brand’s first face care line improves the quality of men’s skin, offering complete face grooming solution
DOVE(®) Men+Care(®), a Unilever men’s personal care brand, is launching a full line to help men finally care for their faces, and end the face torture guys endure as a result of poor grooming routines. Designed to care for men’s skin in three easy steps and offer a variety of solutions for different men’s skin types, the NEW Dove(®) Men+Care(®) Face Range includes: cleansing, shaving, post-shave and face care products. This is the brand’s first foray into face care products, following the success of the Dove(®) Men+Care(®) Body Wash and Deodorant/Antiperspirant lines.
“Men today have a great deal to care about, from their families to their careers, but they don’t always give their personal care the same level of attention,” said Rob Candelino, Vice President, Unilever Skincare. “Neglecting to properly cleanse and moisturize their skin, or doing so but using harsh products like regular soap, all contribute to a man’s face looking tired and feeling worn. New Dove(®) Men+Care(®) Face products seek to help men eliminate needless torture from their grooming routine and help put their best face forward when it matters most.”
Effective and Effortless
Research shows that half of US men acknowledge that as they get older, their skin needs more attention and takes longer to recover.

Jennifer Hyman, CEO and co-founder of Rent the Runway, commented, “The aspirational woman rents the runway because she is enamored with the lifestyles created by many of Advance’s Conde Nast properties. We see this as a partnership with limitless opportunity.”
Rent the Runway currently boasts over 3 million members and 170 designer brands, and recently introduced the first-ever online social shopping platform – Our Runway – which allows women to shop based on user-generated photos of real women with their similar body type, rather than the typical model image. With an overall brand mission to democratize luxury fashion, Our Runway adds another layer of accessibility to Rent the Runway.
“We are excited about our new association with Rent the Runway and look forward to creating unique consumer-centric programs with them,” said Bob Sauerberg, president of Conde Nast, who will be joining Rent the Runway’s Board of Directors.
