My skin tends to be dry, and is worse in the winter. I love Philosophy, Sephora, and Bath & Body Works shower gels, but during the winter, they're just too drying. I keep the big bottle of this in my shower during the winter. It is thick, creamy and white, lathers well, has a nice scent, and leaves your skin feeling great - not at all stripped or dry. This body wash is about as hydrating as you can find, and it keeps my skin from feeling tight and itchy. It soothes my legs after shaving. Soybean oil is one of the first ingredients, even before the lathering agent. This is a very nice body wash for anyone with dry skin. I notice some less-than-stellar reviews, and I feel the need to address that. Some reviewers mention that their skin is so dry they need multiple layers of the heaviest lotions available, but were really hoping that just by using this body wash they could skip lotion altogether, or that their skin would be miraculously moisturized and perfect. Seriously? People, it is a body wash that you rinse off. If your skin is truly dry, this may help, but of course you will still need lotion after using this. No body wash is going to eliminate the need for lotion, that's just common sense. Anyway, I will definitely repurchase.
That's my least favourite dove body wash. I don't like the smell and feels like it's never washed off properly, leaves that greasy residute I've never experienced with other dove body washes. Maybe that ''film'' provides the moisture but I prefer to use another shower gel and body milk instead.
I LOVE this product, ive been using Dove body wash for about 3 or 4 years, I usually vary between this one and the go fresh ones, and even though the go fresh ones make me feel, erm fresh in the mornings after my shower, the arent AS moisturising as this one, I use it all over and its really nice, more creamy than lathery/bubbly but I prefer that. so good!
i've been using this on and off for quite a while now but i can't say it's my favorite body wash but for its price it seems to be ok.
the smell isn't great and it leave my skin feeling like the soap didn't completely wash off but it seems to make my skin smoother if used 3x/day everyday.
probably gonna buy this again or at least till i can afford more expensive brands like l'occitane
I got the travel size. It's nice and moisturizing for sure, but it smelled of cherry cough drop or some generic drugstore scent. I wouldn't be totally against buying this again but I'll be trying out some other shower gels first.
Love this bodywash, very moisturizing which is a huge plus for me, I get the citrus-y scented one which is quite nice and this isn't as great and non-sticky as the alba botanica body washes but this is the one I use these days as it moisturizes and is pretty cheap
Dove has the "Nutrium" name on so many of their products now, it's hard for me to keep up. That said, I found the 24 oz. Bodywash on sale for $6.49 at Walgreens last week and decided to give it a try. My skin is definately on the dry side, even drier in the winter and is very sensitive. I keep three heavy-duty cream-based body washes in rotation along with their moisturizing lotion counterparts to keep my skin from drying out.
This body wash is so rich and creamy that it easily feels like a higher end brand. It lathers really well on a pouf or a nylon washing cloth or gloves and a little seems to go a long way. The smell is not offensive and does not stay on the skin. It rinses off cleanly and I can use it to shave as well.
Best of all is the moisture it seems to leave in the skin. I noticed that soybean oil is among the first ingredients which is pretty impressive as most cleansers list water and a foaming agent. Within a week, my skin felt baby soft - my regular body creams just sealed in the moisture from the body was. This became an HG status product for me almost overnight. Wow. I can't want to try it this summer after swimming.
My go-to body wash. in the summer time it cuts down sensitivity from constant shaving, in the winter- it takes away from the dryness after long hot showers.
it's the best moisturizing you'll get from a body wash.
After trying a couple of other body washes, I needed something that would save me from my skin's winter blues. This solid white, creamy, soft bodywash relieves my skin of itchiness and keeps it well-moisturized in cold, dry weather. It smells lovely and does a decent job of cleansing for a moisturizing product. Dove is definitely the best drugstore body wash of its category that I've tried so far. I'll continue to purchase it during the winter months until I can (maybe) find something better. It's too bad the smaller sizes are so hard to find. ;_;
This was gross!!! I had to buy another shower pouf because I couldn't get the stank off my other one. Will never buy again.
