Dove® and Blogher recently gave me the opportunity to try out Dove’s® new line of premium body washes. I’m not much of a cosmetics person at all, and I never use a moisturizer. Commercials do imply that I’m out of the loop on that front… If I believe what I see, women all over are going through moisturizer like it’s going out of style. I figured that if this body wash actually did improve the look of your skin in a week, which is what it claims to do, it would be an easy way to add a moisturizer and not have to make an extra effort.
If I don’t get a shower in the morning right after I get up I’m not a happy woman. That’s the time that I need to kind of wake up and get moving, and you’d better not talk to me until after I’m out of the shower. That’s my time to go through the mental to-do list and get ready to deal with whatever I have to deal with that day. The Dove® VisibleCare™ Toning Crème Body Wash has a nice, light scent, which is something that I need because heavy perfumes really bother me, especially first thing in the morning.
I wasn’t sold on the idea that this body wash could work, but I have to admit that the first time I used it I was surprised at how good my skin felt afterward. It actually does improve how your skin looks and feels, and that was after using it once. This body wash contains the highest level of NutriumMoisture™ technology across the Dove® product portfolio, and you can really tell. It makes your skin feel softer right away, but it doesn’t feel like you have a layer of moisturizer on, which is why I don’t like to mess with that.
The Toning Crème Body Wash says that it improves the elasticity and strength of your skin, and its ingredients include glycerin and vitamin E among other things. It feels really cool when you put it on your skin, which was nice because we were having a heat wave and it’s been really sticky and nasty here. I find myself looking forward to using it, which for me is impressive because I really don’t pay much attention to the soap that I use in the shower.
After a week, I did have "visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash," just like it says. Without doing anything more than just using it in the shower, my skin felt softer and better than it had to begin with. My daughter had also been using it, and she said that she noticed an improvement in the skin on her arms, which is dry all the time.
This is a product that I’ll definitely buy again, which for me is saying a lot. It also comes in Renewing and Softening formulations, and you can find out more about those at http://www.dove.us
This is a compensated review, but believe me, if the product didn't work I would have no problem saying that. It did work. Really.
