A few weeks ago I shared the handmade spa gift basket I made for my best friend. She was was SO excited about her gift basket and we have even made a date to get pedicures together..yay! Is there anything better than getting a pedicure with your best friend? You’re right, there isn’t! :)
As I mentioned in that post I received the new Dove body washes to try out. Over the last month I have used the body washes and I can honestly say they have been great at nourishing my dry winter skin. I wash my hands so often, almost obsessively, that my hands start to crack as soon as it gets cold around here. Aside from using the body wash on well, my body, I’ve been using it to wash my hands then applying lotion right afterwards. It leaves my skin and hands feeling soft and regenerated, which is exactly what I need during the cold winter season.
The new Dove body wash formulas contain NutriumMoisture, which is made of 100% natural moisturizers that the skin can absorb to help keep it nourished. The new formula is mild enough for sensitive skin but still gives you the rich lather that you don’t often see in mild body washes. The secret ingredient is Glycinate, which is typically found in higher-end products. The Gylcinate helps reduce damage to proteins while you wash and helps produce a rich lather that rinses clean. I am all about the lather, I need to see bubbles to feel clean. :)
Prior to being part of the Dove Ambassador program we occasionally used Dove body wash but I’m now convinced that its the perfect fit for our family. We have to be careful with what we use with my son since his skin is sensitive to a lot of body soaps and lotions. We found that some products can be harsh on his skin, even if they claim to be moisturizing. The Dove body wash has been gentle enough that it doesn’t irritate his skin and leaves it feeling nourished so his skin isn’t itchy. A happy child = a happy mom! Overall I’m thrilled to have found something that works for everyone in our family and helps nourish dry winter skin.
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Dove and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
