OK well I know I was only supposed to briefly pause from my series of Serious Skin Care blogs with one interlude, featuring my summary of Innoxa Lipsticks, buuuuuut..... umm, actually I am going to rudely interupt once again and post my review for the Dove Triple Moisturising Deeply Nourishing Body Wash (lucky its my blog so I can get away with being so bold, LOL :D ). I had to submit a review for this body wash today anyhow, so I thought I might as well share my account via my blog as well, considering it goes hand in hand with 'Everything Beautyful' that this blog relates to. ;)
I am extremely partial to bath and shower care products and am forever eager to try something new, so when my all-time favourite beauty website, appropriately named, Beauty Heaven sent me the Dove Triple Moisturising Deeply Nourishing Body Wash, to review for their trial team, (of which I am a longstanding, devoted member) I must admit I was pretty chuffed and keen to put it to the test. Dove has claimed that the soap free, body wash, featuring a breakthrough blend of moisturisers with skin-natural lipids, called NutrimMoisture, penetrates deep within the skin’s surface to nourish from the inside and maintain skin that is beautiful and healthy inside and out. I am not sure how those claims stack up, to be honest, as I have only been using this body wash for just under a week, but what I can say, is that I personally love it and I will explain to you now, why I'm so impressed :)
The body wash is presented in a 375ml white sturdy, plastic bottle, with the Dove signature blue and gold logo, that streamlines toward the top, where the flip-top lid is located. The teardrop shape of the bottle makes it easy to hold, while the durable lid clicks shut tight, so it doesn’t spill if it accidentally happens to slip out of your grasp when showering. Upon opening the bottle, the first thing that I noticed was the delectable aroma that filled the room, reminding me of a delicious dessert. This fragrance is a bit hard to describe, somewhat vanilla, somewhat cocoa butter with a hint of something floral, not sure exactly, but it is very tropical and absolutely divine! My son who was in the bathroom with me at the time, asked, “What is that yummy smell”? I knew then and there, that this body wash was not going to be one I could just indulge in alone, because my two little ‘rug rats’ wanted to get in on the act too, hehe and with a scent so enticing, it really isn’t any wonder. ;) I also ought to mention, that the dreamy fragrance lingers in the bathroom and on my skin for hours afterward, leaving everything smelling so, so scrumptious. :x

After rinsing off the body wash and stepping out of the shower, I notice a difference in the condition of my skin immediately. It’s almost as if a protective coating is deposited on the surface of my skin, to lock in moisture and to maintain that silky smooth feel, which is nice and soft like a babies bottom. While my skin is adequately nourished, there isn’t any greasy, sticky residual either, rather, my skin remains well hydrated and conditioned right up until the next wash. Because it is indeed moisturising, I can even get away without having to use a separate body lotion, which is convenient if I’m in a hurry (as I normally am) making this another great dual-purpose wonder product, and hey, who doesn’t love a good multi-tasker? =D>
|Ideal for shaving|
A little tip: I have discovered that this body wash allows for an effortless shaving experience too. The thick texture makes an ideal shaving cream, providing for better precision and a closer shave, while the additional moisture pumped into my skin, helps alleviate pesky razor burn, shaving rash and the general itchiness associated with shaving sensitive skin.
Overall, I adore this body wash and wouldn’t hesitate in purchasing it to use again and again. While the ‘smicky doo’ fragrance is the highlight for me, considering I think it’s to absolutely ‘die for’ it's also a fantastic, affordable alternative to a regular cake of soap (make that about a zillion times more appealing too, LOL), which will make any bath time experience a memorable affair.
|Say goodbye to normal soap|
It is suitable for all skin types and all members of the family, even young children or those who require a mild formula, to avoid exasperating common skin ailments. Dove Triple Moisturising Deeply Nourishing Body Wash is, in my opinion, such a pleasure to use and guarantees my skin will be clean, healthy and thoroughly replenished. Furthermore, I am actually looking forward to finding out if it further improves my skin to a greater degree, as per the claims professed by Dove, after I use it for a longer period of time. :)
I love body washes, do you? Please share, what is your all-time favourite body wash? Is there one in particular that you keep going back to and purchase time and time again? If so why, what makes it so appealing to you? Fill me in, always keen to learn about new bath and shower products ;)
