Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash.
I'll confess, I'm a hand/body lotion junkie. That tight feeling of just-washed skin makes me *seriously* crazy, and I usually make a mad dash for the lotion as soon as I hang up my towel. I panic if I realize I've left the house without my little tube of hand lotion in my purse. So when the nice people at Dove offered me some samples of their new moiturizing body wash to try, I was game, but skeptical. I tend to avoid using shower gels or body washes much, even though my skin is not particularly dry, just because I hate that soap-scrubbed feeling so much.
I was surprised when not one, but three different Dove body washes arrived. In addition to the Deep Moisture, they also included the Gentle Exfoliating and Sensitive Skin formulas. I decided to start with the Deep Moisture formula. The first thing I noticed was that the liquid feels more like a lotion than a soap. It felt very soothing on my skin and rinsed off easily, even with our hard water. The fragrance is nice too, but doesn't linger after rinsing (a plus). My skin did not have that tight, dry feeling once I dried off, and felt softer. Living in a low-humidity climate, I'll probably never give up my body lotion entirely, but no longer feel the urgent need to slather it on immediately after every shower.
You can watch a video about the new ingredient "Nutrium" here. I do think this product is a huge improvement over other moisturizing body washes I've tried. (Now, if they'll consider removing the foaming agents...hint, hint.) I'll try the other formulas and report back, but the Deep Moisture formula gets 4 out of 5 ♀♀♀♀'s.
If you've tried this, let me know what you think!
