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.
I sprung for this because I was really getting tired of the moisturizing process I had to go through after each shower. I have obscenely dry skin. I've tried just about every rich body lotion, body wash, body cream, and body butter on the market! I usually shower with a creamy soap or body wash then follow with a thick lotion, then put a body butter on top of it! I am exhausted! But that's the only way I can have soft skin. It's a kind of time-consuming process. I wanted a product that could make me soft in the shower so that I didn't have to do so much when I got out of it! I was really hoping this would be it. I've come to the conclusion that it is (sort of). By sort of, I mean that It's more creamy and hydrating than any other body wash I've ever used in my life, BUT it doesn't soften my skin that much. At first I thought maybe it was the way I was applying it. I tried lots of different ways and found that I felt softer after applying it directly to my skin with my hands. I tried applying it with exfoliating gloves so that my skin could absorb it better and I really didn't see a lot of softening. When I get out of the shower, my skin doesn't feel tight which is a good thing but I can't say it's all that soft. It's a little bit soft but for me a little bit isn't enough. I wanted serious softening. The bottle is large but costs $9.99. That's a lot for drugstore body wash. I don't think the results I got justified the price. I give it 3 lippies because this is the only thing I've ever used that doesn't leave that tight feeling when I get out of the shower. It's not out of this world moisturizing, atleast not on my skin. I still have to follow with rich creams though. The scent is something I actually like. It's a fresh, zesty floral. It doesn't overpower your senses but it's probably a love it or hate it thing. I like that it doesn't linger on my skin for more than about ten minutes after showering, so it doesn't interfere with my fragrance. I will continue experimenting with moisturizing body washes to see if I find something I like better than this. So I won't be repurchasing, atleast not anytime soon. I liked this one, it just didn't give me the results I needed.
Due to relocation to a much drier and colder climate, my skin completely freaked out. I was itchy with eczema and scratched all the time. It was kind of a nightmare and I became paranoid about all skin products. I switched to hypoallergenic everything, but the problem persisted. So I tried using the most moisturizing body wash I could find. It's scented (VERY nicely!), but it didn't aggravate my skin at all. It was pretty much the only thing that I feel helped my situation. Now my skin has acclimated and I just try to maintain it by not drying it out. I am still using this body wash and it's been consistent in performance; I always feel comfortable after a shower and sometimes don't even feel I need lotion. It also makes for a gentle shave, but unfortunately it also coats the razor and dulls it. (That's ok, and I will re-purchase.)
This is among my favorite body washes (Dove Cream Oil Sleek Satin, Olay Body Butter ribbons with joboda butter, Olay Ultra Moisture, St Ives Otmeal & Shea Butter, Dial Soy & Almond Milk), if not my FAVORITE body wash. You might think that I have a lot of favorites, but that is because I own more than 20 body washes from high end to low end. To me, this is a "cleansing lotion" rather than a body wash, since it is so moisturizing. I really like that it is very thick and creamy, usually that shows how moisturizing a body wash is. For instance, most of Dial body washes are super runny and watery, and NOT moisturizing at all, if not drying. Anyhow, the only thing I don't like about this body wash is the packaging, like other reviewers commentend about, and the small bottle. I personnally prefer bigger bottles like 532 mL bottles from St Ives. Bottom line: I will repurchase for SURE, this is an awesome product. Just keep in mind that I always use lotion, though I almost could skip it when using this one body wash. If you have really dry skin like mine, don't expect any body wash to be moisturizing enough so that you could skip lotion. This one is as moisturizing as it can get, trust me. continued >>
I wanted to love this. I really like Dove Beauty Bars and deodorant. I've used the old formula of the Deep Moisture Body Wash, and liked it enough that I went through a few bottles, but I didn't love the filmy feeling it left (the petrolatum), and I wasn't totally in love with the scent.
I missed the Nutrium (pink and white) body wash from years ago (the scent was lovely and it was nicely moisturizing), so when I saw the Nutrium moisture, I had to have it.
The scent has changed a little from the old formula, it's not as strong, but it's also less fresh and bright. The new formula is powdery flowers and not nearly as fresh and clean smelling. Thank goodness it didn't last.
It felt creamy in the shower, but I didn't feel particularly moisturized once I got out. I put lotion on all my dry spots, and went about my day.
About 2 hours later, I was dry, itchy, ashy and flaky. Even Dial soap didn't make me feel like this.
I'll be returning it.
I've been using this since the end of Nov. and I love it! I just put about a quarter size glop on my bath poof and I can wash my whole body. I especially love it for shaving my legs. I still use lotion but notice a huge difference in my skin,way more moisturized.
The one complaint I have is that it's so thick that when I get to the last 1/3 of the bottle it's really hard to get out and the top isn't flat so I can't stand it upside down.
I was hoping this would be moisturizing enough that I didn't need any lotion. Unfortunately, thats not the case. I still need lotion in my dry spots (knees, elbows, etc) but the rest of my skin is nice & soft. I like the scent. Light & perfumey.
I do live in the desert & it is the winter so maybe my expectations are just too high. I will continue to look for a super moisturizing body wash but overall I do like this
UPDATE: I keep reaching for this one. I love the light clean scent & that I don't need tons of lotion afterward. Think this will be my new staple continued >>
