After fighting the advice of my grandmother for years, I finally in a fit desperation tried Dove soap as a face and body cleanser. And she was right, yet again. (When will I learn!) This is the ONLY soap/cleanser that has every cleared up my very testy skin. It can be drying, but I have combo skin so I counteract that with Eucerin Renewal face lotion. The combo of Dove/Eucerin has completely turned my skin around. I even get compliments on my complexion. This is something that has never happened to me in my life! Please save your $$$ and give this a try. It smells great and is so cheap, you can't lose! UPDATE: I added the Aspirin Mask/Scrub to this combo and it's the best my skin has ever looked!!
Worst Mistake of my Life!!!! I have very oily acne prone skin, the kind that turns a tissue clear after one swipe. I normally use about 20 blotters a day. I bought dove original beauty bar and used it last night and followed with pure aloe vera. When I washed, it felt a little dry but not too bad. I woke up and felt optimistic because I didn't have as much shine as I usually do. Washed again with it before my shower with luke warm water, horrible! My face started to peel, I couldn't even cover with concealer, dry flakes everywhere but still so shiny. The worst combo. Little tiny bumps on my forehead had become large, red and more irritated. I have dark skin, African so it takes a lot for my skin to turn red. I look like hell at work, I am covering 2/3 of my face with my hair and avoiding eye contact with everyone. On this day, 6-6-06, I look like the antichrist. I read reviews on the sensitive skin version and i will try that instead. Hope it doesn't do the same thing. I am really upset with this one.
It's just able to clean my face perfectly and very cheap
i adore Dove and it's the only soap I use on my body. I've tried other soaps over the years but nothing beats this plus it doesn't aggravate my ecezma prone skin. It always leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized.
Love Dove Soap! I use the Unscented version, it cleans perfectly, does not overdry, leaves my skin healthy and glowing, not dry or tight. I find it also helps keeps blackheads at bay. I've used many facial cleansers in the past, but IMO, nothing compares to Dove.Facial cleansers either break me out, leave an oily film, or make my skin way too dry. The only qualm about Dove is that it melts very fast and tends to get mushy. But it works, its cheap, and is ph balanced. I find it much more effective than Clinique's Mild facial soap, that broke me out and left my skin dry and oily! Yuk! That said, I'm sticking with Dove.UPDATE: I am now using the Original Dove Beauty bar (scented) and I am so glad!! This stuff is wonderful!!! Makes my skin very smooth, soft and clean, but not taut or greasy. This is a great classic staple! Will definitely repurchase!!
After using Dove beauty bar for many years, and accepting the fact that, although it made my skin dry, it was recommended by dermatologists, I finally wised up. I now use Johnson's Baby Bar, which is much less drying for the skin. After all, if it's used for baby care, it must be gentle.
My absolute favourite soap! It's cheap, moisturizing, and I just feel good when I use it.
This has been a HG item for me all my life! I have used Dove (either in pink or white) since I was 5 years old--that was 25 years ago.
I am a product junkie and I love all of my decadent shower gels and creams, but nothing is gentler on your skin than Dove. I happen to love Cetaphil on my face and will never switch, but Dove is something I use on every other part of me. It lathers well, rinses clean and I love the scent. It reminds me of being a little girl--that is comforting to me. It doesn't make me break out and my skin looks great. If my face needs a deep cleansing or is feeling oily, I will put this on my face instead of Cetaphil. I love Dove, and I did use it on my face as a teen when my skin was oily. I owe it to Dove for never having acne as a teen, in my opinion.
I also feel confident using this on my 2.5 year old. It doesn't irritate his skin at all.
White or pink, the classic Dove works great for me. I will use it even when I am 105!
I love the scent of the "unscented" Dove bar soap. It has a beautiful scent! I bought this for the first time this winter when one of my daughters had very dry hands and washing with soap was just becoming painful for her. This creamy delightful soap had her back in shape within a week. I'm tempted to try the scented version now, because I love this fragrance so much....it may be even better!! (Perfect for shaving my legs too) UPDATE: Tried the regular white bar, that is scented. It's just no where as wonderful as the unscented white bar, which ironically has a better scent!
