Gels/Soaps -Dove - Moisturizing Body Wash - "Deep Moisture"
LaOsha 9/22/2012 6:51:00 PM
I want to start by saying that I absolutely ADORE this body wash! It really lives up to everything that I believe Dove brand stands for and advertises. First off, it lathers up on my bath puff BEAUTIFULLY. Even the lather feels rich and moisturizing. Following that, the lather left on your skin (mind you, this is lather, not the straight body wash itself) leaves it feeling softer and more moisturized. I use it instead of a shaving cream because I feel like it works exponentially better than any shaving cream I've ever gotten to use. I use lotion afterwards anyways, but I've gotten by without it because of this body wash. Also, LOVE the packaging. Very clean looking, nice to hold the bottle in your hand and very classic Dove looking ^_^ <3
I was very excited to get my hands on one of these and after I did, I wasn't so impressed. First off, the packaging is bulky. Unnecessarily, in my opinion. Two, the top pops off pretty easily if you like to carry your things around in a bag. I personally carry a backpack. Second, there's no good taste or scent other than the scent of sunscreen, and even though Cosmo swears that the scent of sunscreen makes you happy, I'd rather it was something else. Third, I don't believe that it was actually that beneficial to my lips. I always have a need to keep something on my lips, as far as balm goes. When this wore away, or started to, my lips didn't feel any smoother or healthier than before I put it on. Overall, I'm not impressed.
Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Pure Ice Nail Polish in Feeling Hot

Although the paint does indeed come out somewhat streaky, I absolutely love this color! It's one of my staples and I buy it whenever I see it (for $2!!) at Walmart. I'm always very generous with the Air Dry Top Coat, too.
I liked this product at first, but soon realized that it's too waxy. It did seem to cover up my chapped lips, but not to heal them.
My ex boyfriend's mom got me a tube of the lightest color they have available while I was down in Florida because I was "so pale". I only used about half the tube of lotion because I quickly acquired darker skin through being burned multiple times in the panhandle summer. From what I could tell, though, it worked. It was gradual, not overly staining, didn't smell as bad as anything else I've experienced and the price was great.
I have always been so scared of using product (let alone OIL!) on my hair, so this seemed off putting for my baby-fine hair at first. My hair stylist mother insisted that she try it on my hair when it was released and I was SO impressed! It left little to no weight difference, my hair was shinier and more supple looking. Thank goodness my mom is a hair stylist, though, because this stuff is EXPENSIVE. Probably worth it if you spend that kind of money on your appearance already, though.
Deodorants -Dove - Clear Tone Skin Renew Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

I wondered if this deodorant would work as promised, or if I'd even notice results before I was pretty much through with the first of the product I'd bought. Wonder no more! I absolutely love this product by Dove! Within the first week, the calendula inside had worked it's magic and I no longer have darker areas under my arms from friction ^_^ Amazing and nicely scented, too.
