I so wanted to love this product especially after seeing all the promising ads/reviews on make up alley, but my skin seems to hate all Dove soaps. I've tried to use this body 2x and every time I have an itchy rash all over my body. I'm not sure what ingredient is causing me to react this way (should probably find out...), but I get red bumps on my torso and legs from using this product.
I recently went to intensive acupuncture and was concerned about my regular skincare regimen would worsen the needle entry points so I stopped using all body creams.Then summer is coming and I have purchased a new epilator which is effective yet caused lots of redness on my skin. I don't want to use body moisturizer and still want to calm down my skin after epilatory, so I decide to give Dove a try. I used to hate Olay silk ribbon stuff and am afraid Dove would be the same. However, result is fascinating, for such a cheap drugstore counter product, it did what it claimed, easily emulsified with intensive amount of bubbles, yet still very moisturizing for my skin. I use epilator and then got into shower and use Dove and Dove alone with no soap or other AHA shower gel stuff. My skin is tremendously relieved and redness from epilator are basically all gone after the shower. Then my skin is not dry any more. Off course this product alone cannot replace body cream but it does provide good soothming, moisturizing and calming result. I love it. continued >>
I loved this but I noticed they have added soybean oil to their list of ingredients and my chest has been breaking out more. I hope they correct that because the sunflower oil in this product was all I needed and I know sunflower oil is recognized as being good for the skin. I wish this was cheaper, but it's not bad. It was really helping before they started tampering with the ingredients and creating new/improved versions.
Nice clean smell
Gets you clean
A little gives you a great lather
Cheap and effective
what else can I say?
I've been using this for months now, and I'm really satisfied. My skin is more moisturized. I'm usually in a hurry and I don't take the time to use body lotion like I should, but I've found even less need to do so since using this product. It's a huge bottle, but when it finally runs out I will be purchasing it again for sure.
I purchased the new version of this. I noticed right away how soft and moisturized my skin became after the first use.
Some people complain about the scent, but I think it's neither unpleasant nor too pungent. Foams well, gets the job done.
My only reason for not giving 5 lippies: Since starting with this bodywash, I have been developing painful ingrown hairs on my legs, particularly on my thighs. I will try to use exfoliating bath gloves with this product for my legs to see if that helps. I'd really hate to give this product up. I'll update in a week or so and let you know if the exfoliating helps.
This is a very good product,is true that is having a classy Dove smell..but is very genlle with my skin and also..this is a must "always have "in my bath becouse my husband love this.
It is perfect for me,becouse i always get itcky skin like a result os a hard water and this product is stoping the itchy and dry patches to appeat.I like to use it in winnter sometimes in summer too
The best version of this body wash i got it from Germany where the formula is really pure whit no fake adds..
Lucky me now i like in Germany were the Dove is pure and the best Nivea ever :)
Best body wash for me and my family too.
I am very happy with this body wash. It has a nice, simple, CLEAN scent - a scent that I don't tire of (unlike other overly-sweet, fruity fragrances). It also lathers up very nicely, and washes cleanly away. It does not overdry your skin, or leave you with an icky layer of residue. This one is a staple product and a great value for your dollar. I would definitely purchase this again.
This is the only body wash I can use in the winter. It helps with my super dry, itchy skin. The smell is nice and it feels really creamy. I've tried the "generic" versions available at Walmart and Target and trust me, neither of those are comparable. They have the same ingredients but don't moisturize as well or smell as nice. Stick to the Dove brand!
I echo other reviewers about how great this product is. It really helps keep away dry winter skin without leaving a slimy film! I really love it! Usually I can't stand body wash for that reason, but not an issue with this one. Smell is nice and it really does moisturize to the max! Of course I fell for the commercials showing how most body wash sits on top of your skin while this one actually goes deep - I'm a sucker for a good commercial! Just glad this claim was actually true!
