I didn't like this. It's like taking a shower with lotion, but not in a good way. I have found that the best use for this is shaving.

I am a little surprised by the mixed reviews for this product. I have been using it now for two weeks, and my skin feels better, looks better and IS better than it was before I started using it. I am using the Softening version and I LOVE it! I was using Caress silkening body wash previous to this, and it was fine, but it did nothing to silken anything. As a scientist, I like to test products on only one leg, side of face etc. For this product I kept everything else the same but used the Visiblecare on my right leg and arm. By the end of the first week, there was a visible difference in my skin, most easily visible on my legs (possibly the hair on my arms, even though blonde, made it harder to see the skin itself). My 16 year old daughter in a blind question, felt that the right leg looked and felt smoother and softer. So I began to use it all over and am thrilled with the results. Thick, creamy, great lather, mild scent, only complaint is the flip top is not the most convenient in the shower, but that is a small enough issue for the results. I use this as my shaving product also (I always use body wash to shave, it is just easier for me!) and it works like a champ! This is my HG body wash!
as an aside:
I do not know how much time some of the negative reviewers gave this product, perhaps they gave it a full couple of weeks and really saw no difference, if so, fair enough, bash away! But I agree with a previous review when I say that if the "all natural" crowd is not going to give the product a fair chance and just look at the ingredients and go into a tizzy, please do not review it. It hurts the reviews of all products on this site if people are not going to both use the product as directed and are not going to give it a fair chance. I have no problem with negative reviews, look through my previous reviews and you will see some doozies, but I always give the product a fair chance.

This was just a so so body wash. Very ordinary. I didn't feel it did anything good for my skin, nor did it dry it out. I wasn't crazy about the scents available...they were a little too powdery instead of fresh. I HATE the packaging. The bottle shape is incredibly poor for getting the product out once the bottle is about half full. I had to bang on the bottom of the tube over and overe to get just a little bit out every single shower. Even taking the bottom off of the bottle didn't help much as the formula is so thick it won't come out easily. Clearly, this was a poor design.

Love it, reminds me of the original Dove Nutrium of back in the day that came in a dual dispensing bottle. This wash is cushiony and has a whipped like texture, it lathers but not a whole lot. it's very lotiony, moisturizing and has a pleasant smell. the bottle stands on the cap which makes dispensing fab. I will definitely repurchase.

This body wash is wonderful! My skin looks great and feels so soft. I also like that it doesn't leave a residue like some body wash. I haven't broken any nails trying to open the bottle like some of the reviewers before me. But I also don't use my nails to open it. I use the side of my thumb to open it. Works perfectly! Anyway, I will definitely be repurchasing this. I love it!
UPDATE: I've not used a full bottle of the Softening Wash and the Renewing wash. I prefer the softening wash. My skin feels amazing after. I still don't have an issue with the cap and nail breaking like some reviewers. However I do have an issue with the thickness of the plastic of the bottle. When I got toward the end of the bottle it became extremely hard to get the rest out of the bottle.

The shower gel itself is nice but I won't purchase again because of the poor bottle design. It's very hard to open. I have to use my finger nail to pry it open and then when it got to the end I couldn't squeeze the bottle to get any product out.

I hate it when the "all natural" crowd comes in writing reviews for chemically-wrought mainstream beauty products. Dove VisibleCare isn't a organic all natural ingredient formula, so if you're chemically sensitive or the thought of "methyl-ethyl-whatevers" on your body creep you out, read the label before you buy and stay in the granola aisle and buy the all natural, fragrance-free stuff.
For the rest of us, this is a great body wash. I am trying the "Renewing" version right now (blue bottle) and find it just great. It is very affordable (I think I paid $6 at WalMart for a big bottle of it!) - I wish it had more of a lip to the flip-cap to avoid nail-breakage, but c'est la vie.
It has definitely improved the health of my skin. My dermatologist says the only beauty products worth their salt on the market right now are those made by Dove and those made by Olay (in the Regenerist line) - I believe her!! These are the only brands I buy and my skin looks fantastic!

*EDIT* 04/16/11----- I am bumping this down to 1 lippie. With continued use this gave me a rash and some serious dry patches.
---I have this in the Renewing formula and I really like it. It softens my dry sensitive skin without breaking me out. My skin is brighter and the texture seems more refined. I love the scent, it's soft and clean.

Best body wash I have ever found!!! I was so excited the product actually lived up to everything it was claiming. This body wash did wonders for my extremely dry skin!

Love, love, love this! I am using it in the softening version (purple bottle) and it is the best shower gel/cream I have found yet. It is extremely moisturizing, foams well, smells beautiful, and just feels luxurious to use. I am on my third bottle already. It has made a huge difference in my normally winter-dry skin.
I definitely will be repurchasing this. It works better than products I have paid far more for.
Only one problem, and that is with the packaging; I find it a bit difficult to get all of the product out. The design of the bottle makes it difficult to squeeze the rest out when you get towards the end of the product. Not a huge deal, and certainly not enough to dampen my enthusiasm for this product.

I got this because it was on sale plus I had a coupon and I got LUCKY to find such a bargain on an amazing product! I've been using the renew version of the body wash and I couldn't be happier with the results. If I forget to put lotion on my skin won't feel dry and irritated like it does when I'm using other products... From my personal experience, I think this is a great body wash, give it a try!

This shower cream is indeed soft (I have the softening version, purple package) and does not dry out my skin.
But I hate the overwelming chemical scent and there are so many bad chemicals in this, that I actually don't know why I bought it in the first place! If you want a softer skin buy the Eucerin Shower Oil, or don't use a shower creme at all, I am sure that your skin will thank you in the long run.
