Alright gals, listen up.
I’m pretty picky about the body wash that I use for my daily showers. My skin is quite dry, and at times can feel itchy and uncomfortable. I’m also prone to red or ashy-looking patches if I don’t keep myself thoroughly moisturized. This even happens to me in the 1000% humidity we experience during blistering Tennessee summers! It’s a curse, I tell ya, a curse.
What’s a girl to do?
I recently got a chance to check out a new line of body wash that has hit the market from Dove. I’ve been using Dove products for years. Shampoos, conditioner, body wash, you name it. I don’t know what it is about their products, but I just love the way that they feel. Their shampoos leave my hair feeling fresh and rejuvenated without weighing it down. I love that their soaps lather into a mountain of bubbly goodness. I can’t explain why, but I always feel as though I’m getting cleaner if I have bubbles and lather flying everywhere in the shower. It’s just a visible confirmation that the product I’m using is doing its job.
So this new product, Dove visiblecare, comes in three variants:
1. Toning – promoting skin elasticity and strength.
2. Renewing – nourishes and replenishes skin
3. Softening – softens skin and dry spots
As I mentioned above, I’m picky about body wash, but seeing as how I’ve been a Dove product consumer for a long time, I gave it a go, and used visiblecare in my daily showers for a full week. Here’s my 2 cents:
1. Texture – the body wash itself is lightweight and snow white. It almost feels like whip cream in your hand. It doesn’t feel oily, sticky, or heavy.. all things I appreciate. Who wants to feel like they are taking a shower with a jar of honey?
2. Lather – this stuff works up a good bubbly lather, which always makes my inner girly-girl happy. It’s just fun to use!
3. Scent – sometimes I’m in the mood for a bold scent, and sometimes I just want to smell “clean”. Dove visiblecare has a light, subtle scent that is not overpowering at all. It’s very pleasant.. my husband would use this stuff and not complain of smelling “like a girl!”
Now for the most important part.. does it moisturize? For me, my skin sometimes feels “too tight” for my body once I’m out of the shower and my skin is dry. This leads me to slather on the body lotion as fast as my little hands can grab onto the bottle. I still needed the lotion step after using this product, but it did a good job of counteracting my perpetually dry skin. Of all of the Dove products, visible care contains the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology, so if you suffer from dry skin like me, you might want to give it a try!
Dove claims that this new wash will give you visibly beautiful skin in just one week. After a week of daily usage, I do love how my skin looks. It has a healthy sheen to it without leaving any icky residues. It washes away cleanly and completely but still offers an obvious visible change in the health of your skin. I’m a fan.
